Sunday Inspirations

Good Morning or early Afternoon!

We are truly being Lazy today, Richard is in his office cleaning/organizing/puttering, the kids are playing Animal jam together and Crystal is finishing up mowing the back pasture- a true 2 day job but she likes to help out and is part of her chore since we bought the Horse for her. I'm starting to read a new book ( The Newcomer by Robyn Carr) and finish up the never ending laundry.

We are trying something new on Sundays~ Not leaving the house, total jammie day. So far, so good but I know this afternoon someone is going to get bored and want to go somewhere.

Whatever your Doing today, Make it a Good One!

Influenster Sally Hansen VoxBox

Wow, I'm so excited to share that I received an Influenster Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure VoxBox this week for review. 

I'm in love with the colors and so excited to paint my nails with 540 Jaded. It's the perfect Mint/Green to go with my outfit tonight. 

We have tickets thru Richards work to go see the Magic play basketball, now I'm not a real Basketball fan and have never really followed the Magic or anyone else but it's a free Date Night! 

Thank you Influenster for sending me another great VoxBox to a Review! If you'd like to start reviewing some great, fun products Please let me send you an invite, just email me and I'll send you my link!

Powerocks Magicstick Review

Good Morning! 

The kids are home today for a Teacher/Duty day and while they relax I'm catching up on some reviews and e-mails. I'd really love to sit and read the last chapter in my book that I'm reading but I'll see how the afternoon goes. Isn't that the way of things, I have something I really want to do but gotta get caught up on other things came home with a weeks worth of Laundry for me to do!

While Husband was away for a week due to work I gave him the new Powerocks 2800mAhMagictick to try out during a few of his many meetings. You may read more about them here.

He was able to successfully use it in all of his meeting with no issues, it became very convenient during a tour of the Hospital expansion. He had only one issue where it does become very warm in use and while in a pocket, not burning just warm enough to be aware that it's there. 

So since this has a permanent home in his travel kit I wanted to let ya'll know that if you come across one if these you def. want to pick one up and keep it close by. You just never know when it might come handy!

Thanks Powerocksusa for sending me this product for review. All opinions are both my Husbands and mine.

No Buy January

So for the New Year I wanted to buy a few new items for the House but with the purchase of a horse comes extra expenses. I was up last night while not being able to sleep and thinking....

Today while it rains outside I'm walking around and trying to decorate with some of my forgotten items that I've had in my closet just sitting on the shelf. 

Good-Bye Santa, It was a great Christmas!

Hello forgotten Americana Star

This is missing something....I Love candles but they can get pricey

I found a small black wrought iron candle holder and adding a Vanilla candle...Much better

This blank wall now has this wall-hanging that my Mom stitched for me one year, Thanks Mom!

This wall is a hot mess, I'm spending the day working on this

So nothing spent out of pocket and I'm starting to feel better already with just some easy changes.

Boy, I have my work cut out for me with these darn bookshelves.

Any ideas??

Horse Ownership, Take 2

Today was a very busy but delightful day!

It started with a little horse show that Crystal, our oldest was in.

She did real good, won 3 Ribbons and $2.00!

The other 2 stayed busy daydreaming or playing with whatever they could find,

Then to end the day We went to go visit our New Purchase,

Meet "Joey"

You will be seeing lots of him in the future. We are working on boarding right now so he is staying with his old Mommy for awhile.

This new Mommy (me) has to get used to nightly stall cleanings again!

I'm joining these fun parties~

The Budweiser Clydesdales

The barn that we ride at here in FL had a couple of visitors this past week.
These Clydesdales are so majestic!

Here is a video if you have time to watch it, We got our pictures with the horses at the end.

Our 2 girls are taking lessons as you know, Son hasn't gotten bit by the horse bug yet, his thing is Lego's right now and recently MineCraft.
Abigail's lesson

Abigail's new purple helmet was delivered yesterday so next Sat. she gets to wear it to her lesson, She looks very nice in purple and we will def. be able to spot her in a crowd.

Crystal's jumping lesson

Crystal is jumping higher and higher with each lesson, just watching her makes me a nervous ninny. I'm a Worry-wort when it comes to our kids.

So that is where we are at every Sat. and we love being there, we have made some wonderful friends and the kids are learning new things that they will remember forever!

Christmas vacation is over and everyone is back to school/work. I'm trying to stay busy and deep clean since we were lazy for over 2 weeks. 

When do you start your De-cluttering/Spring cleaning? I'm wondering how others start this process or do you just keep at it all year long?
