First Day of School 2015-2016

The new School year is upon us! 

This year we have 1 in Elem , 1 in Middle School and 1 in High school. 3different school, 3 different bus schedules and 3 very different homework schedules. 

It's going to be an interesting year! 


The first day has gone off without an issue, second day is okay and we will see about the rest of the week. 

How has your first week of school going? Smoothly or not?

Growing Up...

She is going into 6th grade, middle school!

Our middle child, sweet careing and nervously excited. 

She wanted to start the school year off with a bang so she got Earrings! How Brave! The fear of pain had been holding her back for some time now but not today!  

Have you done anything scary to you and afterwards you were wondering why you waited so long? She was wondering the same thing today!

Healthy Eating...

With my Husbands health issues of late I've had to find new items that we could all eat with his new diet. 

I've even managed to make the healthy switch and lost 11 pounds so far! 

First week...

Second week... More great choices

I'm still needing my diet coke during lunch though...

I love looking at this basket, all from the little farmers market across the street from us or from Publix. 

We tend to eat a lot of salads and we love it so far!!

Have you tried any of the new Silk Yogurts? We like them and they don't cause my Husband any problems!

Meet "Dusty"

Abigail has a new roommate! 

Meet Dusty !





The little guy is a Gerbil and is so friendly, he comes right up to your hand and watches your every move while in her room. 

Now we are done collecting pets, everyone has one, HaHa






Kayaking at Shingle Creek and Caught the Bug...

We are having so much fun with our new hobby...Kayaking! 

So much so that we went and purchased 2 new to us Kayaks off of Craigslist. We caught the Kayaking bug after Kayaking at Shingle Creek with the kids last month,  We enjoyed it so much!


We then took them out for the first time across the lake that we live by , no kids and not 1 alligator was seen! It was a great time spent with my Hubby but I did learn that I need to take some time and study all of the different paddle strokes and which ones work best in choppy waters. 


Next we need to purchase an actual kit for loading the kayaks on top of the car , right now we are using pool noodles but hey it works! 

Enjoying every moment outside but can't wait for cooler temps!

New Planners

Welcome July!
I found these matching Mintgreen planners at WalMart the other day and I'm determined to have a more organized school year since we have 3 kids all going to different schools for the first time. 

The Planners start July 2015 and end June 2016. I have to write small but that's to be expected with 5 of us and our daily activities. I like that I have one for my purse and one for my home desk. 

Just thought I'd share a Rave for the new month!

Trying a New Color Scheme...

In our kitchen I'm trying out a new color scheme that I'm not sure about...
I'm not sure because I've always used more traditional colors but after watching the HGTV show Fixer Upper I liked the cooler tones but it's like starting all over from scratch. Everything I have is country/traditional. Not sure how long I'll keep it. 

I did find this basket at Bealls Outlet that I'm loving next to my stove. 
Mr Roo had to make an appearance too! 

Happy Monday!

Meet Bash

We adopted a very sweet Guinea Pig. He is the calmest thing ever!!





The dogs are wondering why he is allowed on the couch and they aren't. 

Hope your June is going great! We have been busy with Summer!

Kitchen Vignette With Stitches

I wanted to spruce up this half wall in our Kitchen for some time now. The ledge is giving me trouble, I'm not happy with anything I've set on it so far. 

While drinking my cup of coffee this morning I was staring at it and an idea was formed. I love my Coffee!!

The candle sticks were purchased at a garage sale, vanilla scented votives are from Wal-Mart. The wall hanging was stitched by my Mother about 7 years ago. 

The plant stand was mailed to me in exchange for a review about 8 years ago and has held up well over time. The plant is a ponytail palm we bought from Wal-Mart 4 years ago. I've kept it alive so far! 

Close up of the saying that is stitched on the wall hanging. 

I declare this corner done...For now!
