Birthday fun

I had a great Birthday weekend. We went to Bar Harbor & got home tonight. The weather was awesome. It's usually cool, rainy & misty when we are there. I'll be adding lots of photos. I took tons of photos of the mountains, beaches, a rock beach & more.

I would love either of these cakes. Gluten-free though.

New England Minute~Salem, MA

I love going to Salem. We usually go once a year. We live further away now, I grew up 5-10 minutes from there. So we get there when we can.

Dance Recital

Today was the dance recital. Tara looked beautiful & she did great. I'm so proud of her. Dancing in the auditorium, in front of all of those people. We're so much alike, but I would have never done anything like that.

Dance rehearsal

Jazz was up first. It's an upbeat song & it had a cool background. Tara was in the front for most of it.

 Below are the ballet pictures. I think that dance is so cute. It's a song from "Tangled". It's really slow & mellow.

The recital is on Saturday night. Can't wait. More photos to come.

Almost a 2nd grader

Yesterday I got to go into Tara's class & see her fave books & find out what she liked best about 1st grade & what she learned this year. I can't believe school will be out in 4 & 1/2 days & she will be a 2nd grader. Where does the time go? This is a photo of her with her teacher. I take a photo each year of her with her teacher. I think it's really nice to have.

New adventure (Want to join me?)

After watching my friend Stephanie Wright, Isagenix Independent Associate, Manager have more energy, lose weight and sleep better in just 30 days, using an amazing Superfood Nutritional Cleansing system, I decided it was time for me to experience similar results, because I was tired of feeling sluggish, achey and tired. I’m so excited to get started and to get my body back. My system hasn’t even arrived yet and I’d love to have some of my good friends join me on this journey so we can hold each other accountable and get the healthiest we’ve ever been together. Who’s up for looking and feeling their best? E mail me if interested at

All about JoJo

So I post a lot about the Drama Queen, but not so much about my other baby (my fur baby). JoJo was my 1st child. I adopted her in 2000. She was 3. I had my 1st apt & went a year without a cat & it was horrible. Because I lived in an apt I ended up with JoJo because I had to adopt a declawed cat. We've been through a lot together. She's always made me smile, whenever I was down. She's the bright spot in my day. She's very easy going.

She loves shoes & every night around 9:00, she wakes up & gets ready to listen to us read a book to Tara. She's been doing that since she was a baby. She is going to be 17 in June. She is starting to lose weight & is having trouble jumping up on things. So I'm thinking that she isn't going to be around that much longer. So I'm getting cuddle time in with her as much as I can, since she's a lap kitty.
