Bullying Should Not Be Tolerated!

Dress Shopping

I never thought I would be at this point with my daughter this soon.  I thought I would not be at this point until she was about to go to her junior prom, not her freshman homecoming dance.

She told me this week that she wants to go dress shopping with her friends, not me this time.  I was a little taken back by that.  Okay a lot taken back.  They have no school this Friday, and her friends mother is going to be taking them.  I can’t go because I have to work that day.  To be honest, I’m a little hurt by this.  She’s not to girly and is always doing “guy” things with my husband (working on the car, riding mountain bikes).  The only thing I feel I get with her is dress shopping for dances.

I know i have two more girls that are following her.  I guess dress shopping for me will have to wait.

Parents Are Not Allowed to be Sick

I haven’t been keeping up with my blog lately.  It’s not that I haven’t wanted to blog, or vlog, it’s just that I’ve been really sick lately.  I know, I know!  I’m a mom, and we are not allowed to get sick.  I have a wonderful, understanding family.  The older kids have helped with dinner the few evenigs I was unable to cook, and the other nights they did not complain once that dinner was at 7:30-8:00.  I am still feeling horrible, but hopefully soon I will be over whatever this is.  For now we will call it the change in the weather.

Day 5


Today was really busy.  I had to help the hubby pull car parts today, and mow the lawn.  It was pointless to fix the hair and makeup when I was going to get dirty and sweaty.  By the time all was said and done it was time for dinner.  I finally got around fixing my hair.  That was at around 8:00 tonight.  I said forget the makeup, its too late for that.  All in all I felt nice and had a good day.
Lets see what craziness tomorrow brings.

Day 4

Today was super busy again.  I did manage to find time before all the craziness started to apply some makeup.  Okay, just concealer and foundation.  I still had a great day.  I got to talk to a good friend, while helping out another.  I got into an ice cold pool so that my 5 year old could practice her swimming .  I also helped my teen practice for her volleyball tryouts.  Today was a great day!


Day 2

I did not forget to write about my personal challenge yesterday.  The day had gotten away from me.
I did fix my hair and apply makeup, but the makeup job was rushed so I feel I didn’t look my best, but I still rocked the look anyway.  I also purchased a new concealer & the hubby surprised me with new eye liner.  We will see how day 3 goes.  Here day 2’s selfie.


6 Things I Will Miss About Summer

I know, i know.  Summer isn’t over yet.  Thank god!  I love summer!  Summer is my favorite season.  When summer is gone, I will be sad.  I decided to share with you 6 of the things I will miss when summer is gone.

Flip flops –  I love my flip flops.  You can never have to many.  I wear them all summer long except for when I’m at work.  I would wear them to work if I could.  Really wish I could.

Pool – I really enjoy laying out by the pool while my crazy girls are playing in the water.  It’s very relaxing.

Summer Sun – It’s nice and warm.  They days are longer.  Keeps me in a good mood.  Love the sun.

Clothes – I absolutely hate winter clothes.  They are too bulky, and well I just don’t like them.  I love wearing shorts, and tank tops.

Cook outs- Who doesn’t love a good cook out.  They are a great way to get together with friends and eat, talk, play volleyball or baseball.  Good food, good people, and good times!

Car shows – Okay, I know that’s a strange one.  My husband and kids are obsessed with volkswagons.  We attend numerous car shows during the summer.  We like it because it’s something they all like to do.  Great family fun times.  We are looking forward to the biggest car show in Ocean City, MD in September.

I love summer and wish it would stick around a bit longer than it does.

My Favorite Apps

I have the Samsung Galaxy S5 !  I love it.  Samsung phones are my favorite.  I wanted to share with you some of my favorite android apps that I have in my phone.

1. aWoman – I can never keep track in my head when my last menstrual cycle was.  Every time women go to a doctor, the first question they ask us is when was the last time you had your period. Love this app.

2. Camera – Who doesn’t love taking pictures of their kids, family, pets, and selfies.

3. Life360 – I really love this app.  I have my husband, teen, preteen & myself on this app.  It tells me where my kids are, and they can use it to check in.  You can set locations for it to automatically check in for them.  It also has a panic button so that if they are in trouble they can click on the panic button and the app will alert my husband or my phone letting us know our girls are in trouble.

4. Key Ring – Keeps all of my store savings/club cards in one place.  No more messy car key ring.

5. Flashlight – This app has come in handy many times.  I always have a flashlight on me with this handy app.

What are some great apps on your phone or tablet?
