Going along with my resolution to be a better blogger, idea collector, idea sharer, and social media whiz (hahaha!) here comes the first post of the (almost) new year!

I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh, Boy Fourth Grade for Currently.


Sooooooooooooooo here we go!


So we live in Vegas...perfect place to ring in the new year, right?
Today on the news they reported that it is colder here than in ALASKA!
Brrrrrrrrr!!!  I believe it!
I've done the whole downtown thing...it's cool...but what's that old saying, been there...

So we are rocking in 2015 at home with some hot happenin' 80s tunes.  Just listened to John Cougar (my 80s guy) and now we've got some Billy Ocean...HEY!  You!  Get into my car! 

LOVING my amazing NYE date.  Love that we always hold hands and "jump" into the new year.  Something he made up a long time ago.  So...be ready to jump at midnight PST!
Here's my sweet guy on our first NYE together (not quite 4 months old).
Cutest date in town, right?


Is it just me or is there more and more in the news lately about food...or is it being put in my path for a reason?  Honestly, it's to the point I don't know what to eat anymore!
I just signed up for the 100 Days of Real Food mini pledge.  I can't wait to see what it's all about.  You can read more here about it if you're interested.  If you join up, be sure to let me know.  I need a buddy!
100 Days of Real Food

Wanting...oh, so wanting this crazy arm to get all better.  I have been experiencing some lymphedema (a swelling in the arm).  Fortunately, it's not painful, just a pain.  It's caused from overuse and by the fact that I don't have any lymph nodes under my arm.  Boo to me.  I've spent a large part of winter break going for massage therapy.  Doesn't that sound great...yeah, no deep tissue massage pleasure here.  And when I'm done, my arms gets wrapped tightly...like a mummy.  Not fun!  Here's what I look like when I leave.  Try fitting any kind of sleeve over that big, bad boy.  Could be worse though!  (and excuse my slouchy self)


Notice that I put "one more week of winter break" under needing and not wanting?  I have so many things that we haven't done yet.  BUT we still have a few more days left.  Feeling thankful for the time off that I spent with friends and family.  That's the best...some jobs can just be put on the back burner, right?

My wish for 2015?  Couldn't wish for anything more than health, happiness, love, and life in 2015 for all.  So what's your wish for the new year?  I'd love to hear it.  Why not leave it in the comments section?  I'll help you wish it true!

Since I heart me some Brad Paisley, let me leave you with this


That's it!  Peace out 2014.  Ready to make some new memories in 2015!
3 1/2 hours and counting until we "jump" into 2015!!
Are you ready?


Well, Christmas sure flew by quickly, if you ask me.  All that prepping and planning and in the blink of an eye, it's over.  I love that when my son was little he used to walk around all year long telling us that he had a Christmas heart.  Awww!  I need to ask him if he still feels that way!

So I know it seems that we were just in school yesterday and probably aren't thinking one little bit about going back, right?  Welllllllllllll...truth be told...me either, BUT, several friends and I wanted to get together and make that task just a little easier for you.

Next Stop



I am trying so hard to remember to breathe this season...breathe and take it all in.  

I love the hustle and bustle, the lights, the excitement in children's (and grownup's) eyes, the wonderful spirit of it all, and the true meaning of Christmas. 

Ahhhhhhh!!!  Breathe!

As many of you know I am incredibly grateful for all things TpT...the friends, the sharing of ideas, the knowledge gained, and of course the ability to support our little family. 

I always love giving back.  I always spend a percentage of my earning to help a family, support a worthy cause, or donate to a charity.  I can't help it...I love sharing!

A fellow TPTer came up with a dedicated day of giving, so I couldn't help but join in!  LOVE!
Tomorrow, 50% of what I earn will go to provide Christmas for children.
The person that coined the phrase "Christmas is for children", couldn't be more accurate.  
50% of the profits from your purchases on December 14th will go directly to fund as many family Christmases as I can make it stretch.

You can find my store by clicking here.
