Got to Meet Her Teacher

Busy day school shopping today & we got to meet Tara's teacher MS Whitney. She seems young & fun. It seems like there are more boys than girls this year. Last year there were only 6 boys. I'm hoping she'll meet some new girls. Plus all of the 4th graders will be in 1 school this year. I think it will be a fun year,

Getting crafty

I'm hoping to be crafty/scrappy when T goes back to school. I love being creative & it makes me feel like I accomplished something. I got a Happy planner finally & I want to work on that ahead of time for each month. It's different than my other planner, so I have to figure out how to fill it up & make it look cute. I also want to scrapbook & smashbook.

Mommy & Me Monday

This pic was taken yesterday. We went out with friends & Tara put on her sunglasses. She never wears them, so I had to get a pic of her with them on. Perfect time for a Mommy & Me Monday pic.

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

New England Minute~Bar Harbor

We ate at 1 of our fave restaurants, Geddys. They have a cool gift shop down stairs called Down Under.

It was misty the 1st day that we got there.

My friend Renee was visiting from MI, so she came to Bar harbor with us.

New Tattoo

So I finally got my JoJo paw print tattoo last night. She passed away last September & I was suppose to get it for Christmas, but we never got around to it. So I got it last night. I had the vet do her paw print, but they did it in a blueish purple, so I had them do the tattoo in black.

It's a bit sore still & it's hard in the Summer & being out in the sun & being sweaty. I want to keep it covered. So this is tattoo #7.

Mommy & Me Monday

We went to Rockport, MA. I love it there. We hadn't been in a few years. We went to a small beach there & I had fun walking around in the water. We snapped this pic near the water.

Day to myself

Anthony & Tara are camping this weekend. Today I had to go pick up my glasses frame (long story, mine broke & I ordered new 1s & they ordered a different color without telling me) that came in. These are the berry 1s that I returned.

I checked out a brand new TJ Maxx/Homegoods. Got some new sneakers & 2 nail polishes.

Then my friend texted me & told me that the planner that I wanted at Michaels was 40% off today. So I went back out to get it.Whew. 

 I'm getting the house cleaned & organized because my friend Renee is coming from MI on Tuesday.

Nail Files. Week # 268

Today I have on Sally Hansen Magnetic~Polar purple. This is 1 of the nail polishes that my friend gave me. She gave me a big tote. I'm probably going to be changing it in a few days before my friend comes from MI. I've been changing my polish a few times a week.

Stuff & Things

* This week was a lot of fighting & arguing. Things are getting rough around here. 27 days until school starts. Just remember that. Life will get back to normal. Schedules & plans & peace & quiet during the day.
* Tara did a Summer camp this week called Nature crafts. She made some cute things. A dream catcher, some river stones, pine cone painted roses, & an owl.
*We went to my friend's house on a lake, so we went in the water. I just put my legs in. It was such a nice day. Beautiful sunny day. We hung out with her 4 pet rats. They are really cute.
* I'm looking forward to Hubs & Drama Queen going away camping, so I can get some scrapbooking done. Just have some peace & quiet. It's hard being a stay at home Mom in the Summer. Keeping kids busy & not bored. Long days.
* So Glad that "Bachelor in Paradise" is back on.

Not sure how many goals I will complete this month, we are going away & have a lot going on in August. So I'll just post 3 easy goals.

2. Make 2 new meals from Pinterest.
3. Pre-post some blog posts since we will be away & busy.
