A Day Off (no, out - well off too!)

A Day Off (no, out – well off too!)

I apologize for not posting yesterday but I had a day Off I mean out…..well I was “off” too. Kristin and I took off for Southbend. Unfortunately our game tickets fell through but Notre Dame on game day is always a fun place to be. It is a HUGE bonus that our aunt lives there […]

Happy Birthday MOM

I know I have been warning everyone that AWARENESS MONTH IS COMING. Yes, it sure is! It starts tomorrow! BUT – before all of that starts I want to be sure that a very special message does not get lost in it all. One of the most important people in my life has a birthday […]

Birthday SUCCESS

Birthday SUCCESS

Boston had a great birthday! We decided on no real “party” just family. This year no one wrapped their gifts (he HATES to unwrap – too much sensory stuff) – My nephew (in the picture) hung out in the hot tub while we set out his gifts (a trampoline, a tent, wiggles movies and helium balloons […]

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day

It is funny…I am not sure when it happened really. The moment that my mom became one of my best friends. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t ever remember not liking my mom – even during my bratty challenging junior high years :) She has always been there for me. I remember her chaperoning many […]
