Last year....when I didn't have anything else I could think to blog about....I would write 5 things I am grateful for.  I am going to get back in that habit.  I often need to be reminded just how much I have to be grateful for....my life is truly blessed and I need to focus more on the positive  Sometimes I get far too busy or caught up in all the things that seem to be going wrong. 
So here goes....
-my kids they are really great kids....even when they are driving me nutso
-iced tea on a hot day
-Belle and Luca our dogs they are just so sweet and loveable
-my gardens....I just love flowers and puttering in the gardens.
-fruity summery cocktails...no explanation needed on this one

What are you grateful for?

CSN Stores.......check them out!!!

I was contacted by Jess at  CSN Stores to do a review for them!  I was excited to check their sites out....you should too!!  The have every thing you could ask for with great selection and prices too.

I love the  Bedroom Vanity selection.  They have so many different styles and sizes to choose.  I can't even pick a favorite. 

So while you wait for my review please check them out!

Emotional Day

Today is the last day of school for my kids.  My daughter has her elementary farewell ceremony....sniff sniff....my baby girl is off to middle school next year.  As if that weren't enough my son will be a high school senior next year.  Not sure this mama can handle all that!

What I want to do this summer?

Every summer we make a list of activities we want to do over the summer.  This years list is in progress..... it will be a bit different than in years past......with college visits and hubby traveling extensively.  But I am trying to roll with the punches.  We will fit in plenty of fun and relaxing!

I am making my own list of things I want to do over the summer:

-Read read read!!!

-Continue exercising daily

-Have FUN with my family!! Enjoy the little moments!

-Organize/Deep clean some areas of the house that need attention

-Spend time in my garden

-Try new recipes

-Take more pictures and learn more about my camera

-Work on my blog.....it needs some serious attention

146 let me say that again 146....that is the number of viruses, spy ware and malware found on our laptop  .  We are glad to have it back and in working order.  I was afraid we would have to buy a new one.

So much for the security software we had in place....it doesn't seem to quite be doing its job!
