Graduation Ideas

I can't believe I have a son who is graduating from high school and another who is graduating preschool. The time has just flown by for the one in high school. I've been trying to rack my brain for some ideas for a gift. I saw something cute the other day. It was a graduation survival kit. It was more for a girl. It had glitter and perfume and stuff in it so maybe I can find something to make it more for my son.

A basket full of candy, snacks and water, a fan, a camera?? I don't know I'll keep thinking. Maybe make something else for the little one. I don't know I better get searching.

I want some fun ideas so I can make graduation memorable and fun for them, especially the high schooler, so if you have any ideas let me know.

Easter Decorations

Do you decorate for Easter? I usually put up a few decorations. I want some more spring decorations too.

I found some cute burlap bunnies.
Check them out here at the Little Green Bean

There is a tutorial here at Oopsey Daisy.

I'm going to attempt to make some.

Kids blow me away

My 5 year and I was were eating lunch with my mom the other day. We were in a restaurant with fans on the ceiling. Imagine (since I didn't get a picture) high ceilings with fans turning around. Ok now bring the fans down a bit. If you are like me I pictured high vaulted ceilings. They weren't quite that high. More within handling distance.

Anyway the waitress brought us our food and my mom and I were chatting and my 5 year old asked us what would happen if we through all of our food up at the fan. My mom and I started laughing and I told him food would go flying everywhere. Land in other peoples food, on their heads and all over the place. He said lets try it!

Kids just say and come up with the funniest things.

New Direction

I've decided my blog needs a new direction. I hardly ever post to it anymore. I don't want it to be negative and for a while there it was negative. I think this time after having a baby I kindof had the blues. So that was the direction of my blog, that and the weather. Who comments that much on the weather? unless you are a weatherman.

I personally don't like it when I happen upon a blog and start reading it and it is all negative. I feel like it sucks the life out of me. The occasional negativity or bad day is ok or even monthly but every post wow. The aura of some blogs kills me especially when I was already down to begin with.

I feel that is the direction of my blog and weather and negativity. So I'm trying a new thing. Trying to be grateful for everything in my life and I'm even writing down what I'm grateful for in a little journal every night. I think it will help me to become a more positive person and get me back to who I was. I feel like the fog has lifted from me already. Winter is coming to an end and the days are warming up and so is my mood.

Hopefully now I'll get some readers back :)

I've decided Spring likes to tease us. It's the season where we just can't wait for it to come after a long cold winter. It's the season we wait to see some life (or buds) springing out of our dormant trees and bushes. It's the season we wait to see the first signs of life from flowers poking their heads above the ground. It's the season to see green coming back to our lawns. The season for color to come back to us after a cold gray winter.

I love Spring but why does it have to tease me so? It starts to warm up and the snow melts and I think maybe no more snow, then today we get a huge flakes coming down. The good thing is I know that the snow won't last now. It will melt in a day or two and then it will warm up again only to have snow again for Spring finally hits. I know Spring will be here sooner than later but I'm hoping for the sooner.
