"Soakin' Wet"

I love a good Saturday morning, but I love them even more when I get to see those sweet pigtails!
Even better, we tell those pigtails that they get to get "soakin' wet" by playing in the fountain in our downtown park. I love that Jason got her reaction on camera!
Happy Girl...
Maybe we should tell her the difference in a drinking fountain and drinking out of a fountain...
What's more fun that running in a fountain? Getting everyone that took me "soakin' wet" too!

Sure, why not? I won't melt. Ok, maybe I did. But in a good way.
Sisters. "Soakin' Wet."

My First Product Review!

I'm so excited! I've been contacted by Lifeguard Press to do a product review! I chose this fabulous 2010-2011 Lilly Pulitzer Large Agenda.

As a children's counselor, I'm all over the county going from schools to homes and back to the office. It's extremely hard to keep up with where I'm supposed to be and where, and most agendas I find leave me this insanely TINY space for my entire day of events. Not happening.

What I love the most about this agenda is that it is useful for things other than my schedule:
  • It comes with an adorable sheet of stickers that I love using for personal events that I document.
  • It has several pages that are just for note taking. This is extremely important to me as I often have requests from families that I have to relay back to other members of my team. When I see 5-8 kids/families in a day, it's difficult to keep them straight!
  • It also has a few little pockets that I can use to hold my business cards, small drawings that my kids give me (love that part!), and other pages of information I need to deliver to my families.
  • Not only does it have the day by day calendar with tons of room, but it also has a "month-at-a-glance" page, which I absolutely love! This feature makes it easier for scheduling my future appointments.
  • My job requires a LOT of confidentiality. This agenda has an elastic band closure that I absolutely love to make sure that only my eyes are viewing the information of my clients.
Plus, it's just so pretty! I love the pink and green, but Lifeguard Press has many other patterns as well for those of you that don't love pink! The bright, cheery pattern is so fun, and I enjoy carrying it around. I've already had several of my clients ask me about this new agenda, and how to get one.

If you want one of your own, or to purchase one for a friend, simply head on over to the Lifeguard Press website! You can see what else they have to offer right now in the world of organization. They also have some fun party supplies and accessories! If you just want a closer peek at my agenda, take a look!

Thanks Lifeguard Press for letting me do a review! What do you say about a giveaway for my readers?! Think about it. :)

Happy Anniversary!

Today, my parents celebrate 29 beautiful years together.
Their 25th Anniversary trip to Maui, Hawaii:
A luau celebration for their 25:
On my wedding day:
These two have been such an influence to teach me exactly how a marriage should work.  They are still just as mushy as teenagers would be, but can still handle the tough situations together without question.  My prayer before meeting Jason was to find someone that I could share their same kind of love 29 years from now as well.

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful parents!  I love you!

A Little Thief

Someone (aka Fenway) really likes it when we spend extended time outside. Since my in-laws were in town last weekend, we borrowed my brother-in-law's cornhole set and spent quite a bit of time outside playing. Sweet, mischievous Fenway also really enjoyed the game:

Except he really didn't like to follow the rules.
He was caught numerous times running off with several of the bags that did not make it onto the platform, as well as stealing some points off the board too.
I secretly think it's because he wanted his Daddy to win, and my father-in-law was kicking some major butt. :)
He finally evened the score and stole one of each. Silly dog! :)

One Smart Cookie!

I used to know how to blog on a regular basis.  Apparently that has escaped me this summer.

Anyway, Riley wants to share with you what she has learned recently!

I'm so proud of my adorable niece!
