Musically Monday: Celebrating My Birthday Early!

Tuesday, I turn 32, and now that I look at the number on this screen it looks old. Like really?! 32 years old? I still feel like I’m 21 with no clue about the future.  Well I guess I’m 32 with no clue about the future hahaha There is something assuring being older and dancing to the beat of my own drum. So for the next few days, I will take it easy (or try to) and enjoy the time with my family. In the meantime, I cannot leave you without a song that I’m feeling. Here’s something from the big band era with a modern twist! I’ll be back...

Old School Blogging– This Mama’s Feet Stays On the Ground #thankyouverymuch!

I love a good old school blogging promp, and this is one is just as awesome!  Elaine over at Miss-Elaine-ous Life has another one for us, and I couldn’t wait to dig in.  It’s great fun to do on  a Friday! What is the last thing you watched on TV? Scandal! Actually, it’s the only thing I watch on TV these days. I don’t want to count the children shows—if I do, then it’s Strawberry Shortcake, and Lunar Jim. (Yeah, I know, no comment ) When did you last step outside? What were you doing? That would be earlier today, I went to bring...

Blogging A.D.D.

Blogging A.D.D.

Even though I have blogged for a while, I can’t help but notice how quickly my mind switches gears–especially when it comes to blogging. I know I’m not the only one, but I’m going to admit it, I have Bogging A.D.D. 1. Seeing a new design on a fellow blogger’s sites makes me want to change mine. It’s like, I see something nice on someone’s site, and I’m like–OOoohhh, yeah I can totally add that if I just do…. (and you now fill in the blank). What really happens–I do so much...

Musically Monday: Dude Looks Like A Lady!

Happy Monday everyone! I’m feeling particularly in a good mood this morning!  I don’t know if it was the hassle free homeschool morning that I’ve had, or the extra sleep (we all need to get used to the new time).  But what ever it is, I’m smiling and in a great mood! While cleaning around, since I’m in the middle of Spring cleaning, I started humming Aerosmith: Dude Looks Like A Lady. When ever I hear this song, I cannot help but think of Mrs. Doubtfire.  Ya’ll remember that movie?  I know I cannot forget...

Walking With Blocks

{I used an overlay to give this photo some texture or grit, and I set the opacity to about 30% so that it wasn’t in your face grit} About the Photo— I have undertaken a project in our home that has managed to turn this place up side down! Since LittleZ started to walk, and became more sure of himself, I wanted to make sure that he would be safe in doing so. After finally making some changes for him and Zee to play, while opening up their space, I set him down. The blocks in the toy chest was the first thing he reached for. He can’t...

Importance of Letting Go

Importance of Letting Go

Earlier this week, we celebrated the beginning of Lent, and of course that means it is a great time to do a lot of reflective thinking, and refocus on the things that are important. Now, when I say the things that are important, I mean not only important to me, but to my family as well and my role in my family. No doubt, you know that I home school, I am a stay at home mom, and that job consists of everything under the sun. There are tons of things that I would love to do just for myself. To focus more on what it is that I want, and the...

Life Through My Lens Thursday- Week 9

  Life Through My Lens Thursday Photography Challenge is my take on a Project 52.  I chose one object – Linus – and decided to photograph him using different themes and techniques.  Other times, I’ll make a story out of the photographs that I take.  To see the beginning of my challenge, start here.  *** This week on Life Through My Lens (haha, sounds like a soap opera) I tried my hand at the concept of hidden.  But then I got bored with that for a bit, and decided to have Linus play in my plush rug. This weeks theme:...

Life is a Song

Life is a Song

Remeber this quote….   The part that stands out most to me is ‘life is a song.’   Imagine this… Everyone of us has a melody. A tune that represents our life, and no matter which instrument we pick up to play, the only tune that we can play is our own. Some of us bop to the genre of Hip Hop, Rhythm and Blues, Country, Jazz, Funk, it doesn’t matter the genre, because our melody is flexible to encompass all of these musical forms without sacrificing our own originality. This is a bit of how my inner world function. Throughout the...

Musically Monday Presents: Life

I hope everyone has a great start to their week so far! So as I mentioned yesterday, my interests has been changing and a lot of that has to do with the personal growth that I know I am going through. Be it my birthday that is coming up soon (expect to hear a lot about that this month–fair warning ) or just the season that I am in my life, I expect this as much. Since Mondays I share with you a glimpse of what goes on my mind (and iTunes account) through my music, I wanted to share this part of myself as well. Would it surprise you that...
