  4. I wish I had____ in high school and not____

1. Today is Friday!!!!!

2. There is little a concerned mother won’t find out about their kids when they know something is up. Mother’s intuition is an amazing gift!

3. To have a friend you must first be one.

4. I wish I had had a calmer  personal life in high school and not had to grow up so fast because I was blessed with a looney mom. HOWEVER, it is because of her that I am who I am today. So it is a bittersweet thought, eh.




WW- & Between the Lenses = Mornings and the little things DO count!

I am doing a double post, this one actually falls in line with this fun hop I did last month to, so it was simple meant to be!

Between Lenses with Tara Victoria and Of Trees and Hues

Our mornings start at 5am…. so when I was leaving to take my son to school and saw this cute little note, my morning was truly complete! It didn’t matter that the cat was being retarded or that my daughter who isn’t a morning person, more so than myself, all of it disappeared with this simple gesture from my amazing hubby!

An early morning "love note"!

An early morning “love note”!


My husband ROCKS!

I miss Recess…

This weeks prompt is “Recess”
The first thing that I thought of was this.
Oh to be a child again.
Life really was much simpler when we were 10 when we just didn’t know any better. Recess was just part of our day and more for the teachers than ourselves. It saved a few kids I am sure. :-)
Now as a working adult and mother of two teenagers, 
this is my recess.

My "recess"

My “recess”


I have recessed lighting in my kitchen which makes the mornings not so “bright”. That is until my super chipper, peppy, morning hubby comes in and switches ALL the lights on.

Courts will recess when  both sides of plead their case and a decision needs to be be made.

I have given myself many recesses from anything technology because my brain simply can’t handle it all on certain days.

May you give yourself a recess today to simple breath.





Coffee Chat – My Immortal.

Happy Tuesday!


What a day!
Which got me to thinking about today’s prompt for this weeks Coffee Chat with my good friend Rory.

Tuesday, October 7th/14 
If you could be immortal for one day; what would you do? 
For starters, coffee wouldn’t be a necessity, right?
Sleep would no longer be an issue, then I would simple do whatever came naturally.
Staying up late wouldn’t hurt so much the next day.
I wouldn’t stress about all the “little things”. I would just be because time wouldn’t be a concern.
No deadlines…how nice would that be?
I could always be where I want to be instead of where I have to be.
I wouldn’t worry so much about what I eat or how many walks I took to stay healthy, because there wouldn’t be that need.
When immortality is on your side, health is really a mute point right?
Does being immortal mean I will forever feel like I am 20?
The idea of immortality seems trivial because I think the reality of it would be simple.
It would change the way we think, if even for a day.

Tuesdays Coffee Chat is Back

SO EXCITED this one is back! While I am not the best blogger, I am getting better.

This weeks topic is Collections.
I have two collections that were started a lifetime ago.
One began with a gift from my amazing hubby.

Best HS graduation gift!

Best HS graduation gift!

This one figurine stared what would become my memory book for those special moments in life when cards just don’t do it.

Between marriage and having kids to just those quiet family moments, my husband has captured them all in this very sentimental collection just for me. Always picked them out himself with zero input from me. Always a surprise, always my favorite gifts.

The next collection is because I have a few friends that travel. I would always offer to “watch” their homes, pets, etc. All I asked for in return was one of these.

I am a noob and forgot to turn the two “Planet Hollywood” glasses around but one is from
Las Vegas, the other from California, (I think).

This is also not a TRUE representation of my collection. I haven’t counted, but I believe the
number is over 50. They line the “top shelf” of my liquor cabinet and go about two rows back.

Who doesn’t love a choice of shot glasses??

Some light Pondering

I was going to skip today because I came home yesterday not feeling the best and still don’t but managed to muster up the energy to ensure my kids get out the door to catch school buses. Turns out my daughter isn’t feeling the best either, so we are home with whatever this crud is together. (nothing I hate more than having kids home sick without me)


So lets Ponder for a few minutes…

Time to Ponder yet again.  You know the drill… I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!

(If you want to send me words that you would like us all to ponder – please feel free to do so!)

Today’s word is TREAD (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page

So yesterday at work the day started fine. I was busily working my little heart out a multitude of projects when my head started to feel as thought someone was treading on it with a pair of heavy combat boots making it impossible for me to even see straight.

There has been a period of time in which my hubby and I have had the unfortunate pleasure of certain individuals that like “tread not so lightly” in and around our already annoyed state which is endangering their well being.  We have never been fans of folks who have a superiority complex especially when it seems to seep into our very quiet, caring and giving home.

I got the oil changed in my car this weekend and I inquired as to the status of the tread on my tires because I live in a state when it can start to snow anytime now. Happy to report, I will be fine for another season.

My son is in swimming this semester and has shared his distaste for having to tread water for more than 5 minutes.

Think that covers my brain output for the day. Back to bed I go.

Here is to a great day!
