Picture This!

Last year I discovered an amazing website with tons of activity resources that I could do with the kids over the summer.  Education.com has a vast amount of information for you to read about your children and developing their skills through birth and school.  I first joined because of a summer contest they were doing for prizes, but didn't get my act together to finish the challenges.  

Next they hosted a Merit Badge challenge, and I was able to enter into that one and won UP! on dvd.  

Then they had a photo contest where you took photos of you doing different activities, and I posted a couple and won some weekly prizes.  

I received an email from one of the staff members after that particular contest was over saying congratulations on my weekly wins, and asked if I would be interested in becoming a photo contractor for them.  I was blown away by this offer, and said that I would be honored to help them.  So I was given my first couple of assignments and was able to get one of them done so far.  Well, my photo is now on their website to showcase the activity!  What an opportunity!

I'm hoping to be able to get the next one done this next week so stay tuned.....

Knock it off

I've made a happy little Internet discovery this past week.  I've been perusing it's pages every day dreaming of doing some or all of the projects and how they would look just perfect in my house.

Knock Off Wood is the name of my new indulgence.  Ana is the mastermind behind it all and I must say, she is a genius.  She creates plans for you to build your own knock off version of beautiful furniture created by the likes of Pottery Barn, Land of Nod, and other high end companies.  How fabulous is that!!!  AND she posts those said plans on her blog....for free!!  I have a hankering to build me some bookshelves for the kid's room as well as some for our office closet.  I guess it is yet to be seen if I'll be brave enough to do it...Stay tuned....

Yes, I said musings...lol. Just thinking about nothing in particular, but thinking nonetheless.

What to do for Jordan's Valentine's. Should I go homemade or store bought. Perhaps a combination of both?!?

Why can't I get the motivation to get and stay organized? Do I have some recessive lazy gene that is keeping me from achieving that or and I truly that lazy?!?

To scrap or not to scrap...at least tonight I'm wondering.

Why I can no longer read books like a I used to. Is it because my brain cells have vanished since I gave birth to my two children or just too tired because of them?

These and many more thoughts keep running through my head tonight.

Being Lazy

I've been such a blogger slacker and just lazy.  

Jordan had a fun birthday yesterday...it's hard to believe 6 years have gone by.  I love that little boy of mine!

I've got tons to do this week in preparation for his party on Friday.  I've got to get things cleaned up around here, work on his cake, and just make sure everything is in order so we can partay at Chuck E Cheese.  Jordan is super excited!  

I'm gonna try to be a better blogger, though the lazy gene may win out in the end.  Oh well...

Here's a picture to admire anyway.  

I guess it should be of Jordan, but I just love this one right now.
