Goodbye April

April was a long & busy month, but ya know what? May is going to be even crazier. I'm working on my Planner for May. My hubby is going away to Malaysia in a week & I'm freaking out a bit. He's gone away for work before, but it was to NY & Atlanta. This is so far. We have dance photos, Mother's day, Tara is bridging up in Brownies to be a Junior, We are going to Cape cod for our Anniversary early, Going to a vineyard on our anniversary weekend & T will most likely be in the Memorial day parade. It should be an interesting month.

Nail Files. Week # 255

This week I have on 
salon Perfect Neon Pop~Back to the Fuchsia. I think it's really pretty, but it is a matte & it kind of chips pretty quick. I got another color too. Maybe I should have waited to see how the 1st 1 was. As far as I know they are new from Salon perfect.

We thought that Spring was finally here

  It was 36 degrees here today. We had sleet for like 10 minutes. I'm so ready for Spring. Vacation week & it's only going to reach 60 degrees. But we will make the best of it. The flowers & buds are finally starting to come up.
 Oh, how I love you Spring. Come back soon. Love, Drama Queens Mum.

Mommy & Me Monday

On Saturday we went to my hometown area in MA & ate at 1 of my fave restaurants. We sat out on the patio. It was a bit chilly, but a nice day.

Nail Files. Week # 254

This week I wanted something funky, Springy & colorful. It's more LA Colors~Color Craze minis with no names on them. I think I am done with the minis for a while. They actually do chip pretty easy. I repainted these a few times, but you can still see the layers of chips. But I had so many minis & I haven't even worn them all yet. Next week it will be a different brand.

Challenging myself

I always tell my daughter to practice & she will get better at things. Practice makes perfect.. So I've been wanting to get stronger doing yoga poses. Most likely it's going to be a lot harder for me since I have fibromyaglia, but I really want to try it. To be more flexable & see if I can do it, plus maybe feel better & less stress. I love stretching & have been trying to add yoga stretches in throughout the day.

Mommy & Me Monday

I was taking a few selfies of myself yesterday (haha) & Tara decided to get in a few. I thought this 1 came out really cool. Twinnies.

New England Minute~Field trip

Yesterday I went on a mini field trip with Tara's school. We checked out the London Bridge causeway. There was a bench that had the date on it, of when it was finished I guess. We saw the causeway & the rock wall. It was a nice day & I had lots of fun with her class.

Sassy Kizmet

So as you know I have a Drama Queen Tween Diva named Tara Rayne, but lately our cat Kizmet Sassy has been a little too sassy. She is 3 & 1/2 & has had a bit of a cattitude today. Not sure why, I even bought her some catnip mice that she loves. They usually last a few days & then the stuffing is out of it. She was trying to drink from my cup today, when I was getting ready to go out. I put her on the floor & she went over to her water bowl & stuck her paw in it & pushed the water out of it all over the place. I'm thinking it's some teen cat thing. My friend said her age in cat years is a teenager.

5 Tips for staying organized

1. If you bring a product into your house, you should get rid of an item that you already have.
2. Do I really need this product. Will I be wearing that shirt again? Is it too small now? So put aside that stuff. Have a keep tote, donate, maybe pass it on to a friend, bring to Good Will or Salvation Army.
3.Buy a folder to put certain papers in. Like insurance, heath stuff, taxes etc...
4. Ask yourself if you really need it. If not, let it go.
5.Keep things that mean a lot to you & are special to your family too. Make it a family project to get things in order.

New hair

Tara had her hair trimmed a bit today They only took about an inch off & then she did a fancy braid for her. She looked so pretty. In pink & purple. We brought her to Snip-its in Nashua.

This is an old photo from a few years ago. We had a bunch of monarch butterflies in our yard. We would just go & stand in the middle of the yard & put out our arms & they would land on our fingers. It was something we would look forward to. Every night we would go sit outside on the deck until we saw a few. But we haven't seen any in a few years. I really miss them & wish we would have some in the yard this Summer. I love butterflies.

Do you have any hobbies?

I have lots of hobbies. I've been writing to pen pals since 1985. I love writing it relaxes me. I've been scrapbooking since 2008 & smashbooking since 2010. Blogging since 2008. I also love organizing, decorating, yoga, pilates, entering giveaways, reading magazines, taking pics, napping, shopping, traveling, painting my nails, making cards, making lists, genealogy, couponing, cleaning (yes, I enjoy it & I clean when I am upset or stressed out), decorating my planner, gardening & a few more things. Yes, I do have way too many hobbies & have a hard time keeping up with them all, but they all make me happy. Do what makes you happy right?
