All Over the Place


I know, I know, I've been bad at updating my blog lately. It's just been a crazy month. March flew by and April looks to be doing the same. I was in Arizona all last week with work, picked up the cute little Spongebob above for my sweet little guy's 6th birthday party coming up in less than two weeks! Housekeeping must have thought it was cute too because they sat him out on my bed after they cleaned one day. It made me smile when I walked in that afternoon.

Our Kidzu Gala is this weekend and we've got some fabulous art for the auction and the decorations are going to be out of this world! I can't wait to share pics from the event! Now if I could only decide what I'm going to wear.

I'm fighting a cold. Party due to that dry Arizona weather (what do people see in Arizona?) and party because of the change of weather I'm sure. This is the type of cold that would knock Mike out for about a week. We mamas, just gotta keep trucking. 

Plans are in full force for the birthday party. A co-worked volunteered yesterday to show up dressed like Darth Vader (he just happens to have a costume). I'm not going to tell Walker - keeping it a surprise. He is going to love it!!

My best friend had her baby, after twenty-some hours of labor! She and her husband have been blessed with a precious baby girl. I can't wait to get down to Atlanta to see them and snuggle on her. Oh, and dress her up like a little Barbie doll and take lots of pictures of her.

That's just a bit about my crazy world. I promise to get back into the blogging groove very soon and do more than one post a week! Right now, life is calling, and I can't slow down to type!

  1. I hope you feel better soon! I know exactly what you mean about how husbands can be when they are the least bit sick... ;) Good luck with the birthday party!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
