A Long Time Ago...

A long time ago, I months ago to be exact!

A lot has happened since then:
  • Rod asked me to marry him on Liam's 2nd was. awesome.
  • I received a promotion... it was equally awesome.
  • Cierra made Honor Roll...again, awesome.
  • Liam managed to go potty a couple of times
 was awesome, but still a work in progress!
  • Rod and I joined CrossFit Hydro together...I'm sore, it's awesome.

Speaking of CrossFit, I will probably be checking blogger frequently, since that is where workouts are posted, which means I will BLOG MORE!

Aren't you so excited?

Summer so Far...

WHERE has summer gone? 

I've been working less (hours were cut for the summer), but it SURE doesn't feel like it!  These kids (both my own  AND the Summer Work Experience) are keeping me plenty busy!

On a side note:  The Summer Work Experience program is awesome sauce! 

For those of you who shop and/or donate to Goodwill, no matter WHERE you are, THANK YOU! 
You are the ones helping fund wonderful programs that truly impact the lives of people!

I am feeling very grateful for my job and family this evening! 

The kids (I am working with), wanted to do the Harlem Shake.  I told them I would make it happen, ONCE each of them landed an interview.  (at which point, I quickly made sure it was okay with my boss and Goodwill marketing)  :)

THIS was the result!

Blissful Day

Blissful.  That is what my Mother's Day was...blissful!
The kids spent the night at my brother and sister-in-laws house, so Rod and I could spend some time together, sleep in and basically get all the things done that we can't with Liam running around!  :)
The first was getting the pond up and running: CHECK

The second was helping Rod build two raised vegetable beds for our garden. (I use help loosely, since all I did was hold wood)  ha ha

I have all THESE guys waiting to plant...running out of space in the house.  Maybe there will be a greenhouse in my future for next year (it sure would be helpful).

We picked the kiddos up on Saturday, enjoyed the beautiful weather and family on Sunday (even though Rod was still finishing up the raised beds. 
I will post more pictures of the raised beds when the second one is complete.  I've since planted in the first one, and made the path between them (thick layer of cardboard, covered with straw and then mulch).  They. Are. A-Mazing!
Speaking of A-Mazing:
This was pretty much my Mother's Day.

Feeling loved, blessed and HAPPY!
