Getting behind

I think that happens every Summer you get behind in things. I am getting caught up in letters finally since mail has been slowish. Going through some recipes (like 400 of them). I've been doing a bunch at a time. I really want to simplify. I can't wait for Tara to go back to school, so I can really have time to get organized. I'm also going to have my friend come again to help me organize my office/craft room. So behind right now, but hope to get back to life & get caught up in September. August is going to be a crazy/busy month & I'm sure it's going to fly by. So September will be healthy eating, yoga & getting organized.

Mommy & Me Monday

1st I want to say I didn't get to post on Saturday because we had a wind/thunderstorm & lost power. It was back when we woke up on Sunday morning. I really should post ahead of time, but Summer gets so busy. Then for some reason I never got around to blogging on Sunday. I guess I kind of forgot. So I kind of took the weekend off without meaning to.

This pic is from Tara's birthday. We never got 1 at Friendlys at dinner. So we took 1 right before bed.

Linking up with Krystyn from "Really Are You Serious"?

Nail files. Week # 266

This polish is 1 of my fave royal blues & I don't think they have it anymore. I haven't seen it anywhere. It's Wet n' Wild Megalast~Coast to Coast. Luckily it hasn't dried up or anything. I've had it for a few years.

She's 9 years old

I can't believe it, Tara is 9 years old. She'll be double digits next year. Time really does go fast. I know parents always say that, but it really is true. Growing so fast & such a sassy girl. Now a tween.

9th Birthday Party

We had T's birthday party early (it's really the 21st). She had a lot of fun. About 11 girls came. We had a water slide, water balloons & a make your own sundae bar. It was an ice cream theme. The weather stayed nice. It said chance of rain & thunder. We had some sun, some clouds, but no rain.

10 Things Making Me Happy This Week

1. Watermelon sherbert.
2. Finding birthday presents for people.
3. Happy Mail.
4. New Skechers sandals.
5. Planning the Drama Queens birthday party.
6. Organizing & throwing away stuff. I got rid of 2 trash bags of magazines & threw out 7 nail polishes so far.
7. Birds in our birdbath. We are in the middle of a drought. So it's nice to see them happy.
8. Meeting new people through friends.
9. My New Black Cherry Merlot candle from Bath & Body works. It smells so good.

10. Getting a $35 Estee Lauder kit for $18 with my friends discount. The only bad thing is I have to wait for it to be delivered.

Nail Files. Week # 265

My friend gave me a canvas tote filled with nail polish. This is 1 from the bunch. It looks handmade, so I'm not sure where it is from. But the shade is Miami Beet. It's a pretty plumish color. I'm getting ready to take it off tomorrow & start with something new.
