Summer Reading Program

Our library is great.  They always have these really fun programs for the kids.  This summer was “Make a Splash at Your Library!”  It encourages the kids to keep reading, with sticker charts and cute arts and crafts.  I love to read- if you have not noticed, lol.  And we do a LOT of reading to and with the kids. We finished our charts on Sunday- which can only mean one thing- summer is pretty much over!  🙁 
Well, it was fun while it lasted!  It’s almost Friday!  See you!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

And the winner of the UPrinting Giveaway is

Tooth Fairy

How cute is this?
I got an email today from Grace at http://www.blessedelements.com/ , and it had the cutest site on it!
It is called “I Caught the Tooth Fairy”. You take a picture of your child sleeping, and they transpose a little fairy over their heads as if they are being visited by the tooth fairy! How adorable!

I Got the “Life Is Good Award”

Aww, now I feel special! I got my first bloggy award 🙂
Thank you so much!

In order to accept this award, I must answer the 10 questions below and pass the award to six fellow bloggers. Much thanks goes out to Michelle at New To Mom for the award.

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?

I used to be private. But now I am really enjoying the whole “public blogging” thing and meeting new people 🙂

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side.

Uh, I’m a mule. To give you one incident….well, that would be unfair to all the other incidents. 😉

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?

Why, what do you mean??? I’m FAB-u-LAHS dah-ling! (Even all that gray hair!)

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?

Strawberry lemonade

TGIF

TGIF, all right!
I am so glad that the weekend is almost here. I’m not sure why, but mama is fried this week!
In about 15 minutes, I have to leave for yoga class, and in that spirit (and the stressed out one I mentioned!) I thought I would leave a link to some relaxing yogic poses you can try out.

19th Amendment

90 Years ago today, the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote in the USA.
This is just a quick post, saying that I am grateful to those who came before me, who stood up for our rights, and how glad I am to be in the company of fine woman today.
Please take a moment today to honor the great woman (and some men, too!) who fought for our right to vote, and paved the way for women to to hold political offices, corporate jobs, to work where she wants, or make her own choice to stay at home. Hopefully we will see a woman president soon! Hopefully we will (FINALLY) have the equal pay for equal work act passed. But today, thank you for 90 years of having a say in our country.
