July 4th

So I am sure that some of you have big plans for the 4th...and I would have to say that I am a little bit jealous.  And I really do mean a little bit.  In our world today we are laying low.  The Hubs is actually working for a few hours, Kid Clammy is going to play with Tia and I am going to enjoy a little bit of alone time before we settle in for some afternoon fun of who knows what and fireworks.  I would like to send a thank you to all Military past and present for all the sacrifices that you make for us and our country.  Thank you!!  I hope you all enjoy your holiday!!  I am looking forward to not having to go back to work until Monday!! Yeah me!!!

Quality vs. Quantity

The older that I get (and I am really not THAT old I just wish I could stay 30 forever), I realize more and more that quality wins almost always hands down over quantity.  I am sure that I am not the only one who realizes this.  But let me explain this in my life terms.  Mainly this is in regards to people in my life.  The more time goes by the more I realize that its okay if I don’t have a bazillion and one friends, but if I have a select few and I mean count them on one hand so to speak that I know 100% without a doubt I can count that is what matters.  The quality of these friendships is so wonderful that they simply last a lifetime.  Heck some of them began ein lementary school and some in adult hood but when they start doesn't matter.  What matters is they started.  No matter what life brings, where we live, who we marry, how many kids we have or how long it has been since we talked (a week, a day or two months) it doesn't matter.  I know that I can call any one of these friends, talk about anything, they will listen, give advice wanted or not, cry with me, laugh with me and not judge me.  They love me for me and that’s that.  These are way more important that the millionth and two friend who was just super sweet to your face and then turned around and blabbed all your business and then some to whoever walks by.  These quality friendships are the ones I want to nurture and grow and I look forward to seeing the journey that life takes us on.  Love you friends!!

Rock Of Ages

Tonight I got to have a date night! A date night with my bestie. We ate Rubios (yummy!) and saw Rock of Ages. Has anyone seen this? What did you think? To paraphrase the bestie...entertaining, we laughed, sang our hearts out and did a lot is thinking WTF!! But you really can't go wrong with some good ole fashioned 80's music! Some Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Poison, and so much more.  I don't know about you but I love me some 80's music!!!

Helllllloooooo Jellllooooo

**Meant to post last night and forgot**

Well hello Sunday evening.  I sit here a little sad and irked that I have to go back to work tomorrow.  I had such a fun weekend with the hubs and Kid Clammy - I don't want it to end.

Speaking of Kid Clammy,  I thought it would be fun to write him a little letter, just to remind him (since he won't remember) some of the silly and crazy things he has done.  This is also to help me remember – because I find that Kid Clammy is so smart he must have stolen my brain cells while I was prego since I can’t seem to remember much!!  So without further ado...

Dearest Kid Clammy,
You definitely keep us on our toes.  For instance like when you sprayed yourself in the eye with the hairspray while I was in the shower (sorry for the visual) - yeah you did that or having to make two trips to the Urgent Care all in the same week.  The fact that you say "no" in your cutest voice possible to just about EVERYTHING - even when you want to say yes – we will call this your new favorite word.  I prefer “yeah” or “Elmo”.  .  Or that now you like to say you are “scared” in a tiny little voice with your hands tucked under you chin (it is the cutest thing - trust me on that).  I love how you like to play peek-a-boo in the car and you think I can't see you when you cover your eyes.  You are absolutely priceless and so smart that you amaze us everyday we can’t wait to see what you will do next!!
Love you to the moon and stars!

Dear Friday

Hello Friday!!
Dear Work - I am happy that after today I will be off from you for two whole days.  You sure do bring some strange people and things into my life.  A bunch of weird and randomness is to be expected.  I often find myself saying "just when I thought I heard it all".  Dear Weekend - looking forward to laying low because sometimes you are too full and tend to go just way too fast.  Dear Hubby & Kid Clammy - I love you bunches - too the moon and back and then some - just sayin!!  Dear Time - can you please slow down some.  You move way to fast for my liking - and I have a feeling I am not the only one who thinks that!!  Dear Followers / Blog World - thank you for accepting me I look forward to where this journey will take me!!

Happy Friday Everyone!! Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Happy Hump Day

Wow I can’t believe that it is already Wednesday.  I heard this expression the other day “the days are long but the years are short.”  At the moment when I heard it, man did it feel true.  Then as I sit here today I think wow everything feels short.  The amount of time I get to spend each day with Kid Clammy, the amount of sleep that I get, the weekends, the years.  The only thing that seems long is the time I spend at work because I am away from the kiddo.  Any how as I woke up this morning I thought wow it is Wednesday.  Crazy!!!  I hope you all have a great hump day – we are on the down hill slope to the weekend!!

Just "BE"

Have you ever wanted to just "be"?  I have a few very dear friends, who are the type of friends that you can just sit and "be" with.  They are the friends that it is ok if there is a lull in the converstation, where you don't have to be talking every second that you are together.  These very dear friends of mine do not live close, and it is my hope that one day we can sit on a porch together, watching our kids play and just "be".  Just be friends, just be mom's, and just "be" whatever!! 

On a side note I would like to thank my first follower - check out her blog - she is AWESOME!

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>


Hello Blogging World!! Welcome to my blog.  This is my very first blog and very first blog post!!  I am in fact a newbie!  I am very excited about this journey I am embarking on and hope you will join me in the fun.  I know it won’t be easy and I am sure that I will need help along the way.  Why a blog?  Well I think it would be a good release for me.  What do I plan to post about?  Family, Fun, my kiddo - who I happen to think is just darling, and whatever else comes to mind.  

I am not fashionable (hoping to be with the help of the blogging world), I can be creative (sometimes), but I love to try new things this being one of them.  I have a love for photography – though I am hoping this blog will inspire me to take more pictures.  I  hopefully will learn from myself and others as well help others!  That’s probably why I went to school to be a teacher.   
Any-whooizle sit back and enjoy the ride!!!
