Let the fun begin

So this is how we are starting the summer, a little time in the pool and I am training myself for a half marathon coming up in November. I entered my first 5K with a friend last week and here is a pic of us before :)
I have also started working on a sign for my family room, I will show the progress on that this week.

Fridays are for frugal finds!

Today I have a lot on my plate, other than the usual cleaning, running kids places,& errands, I love going to my local Goodwill store on Fridays! They always have a ton of "new" items out & I always find something. :) Today I am on the hunt for interesting items that can be incorporated into my husbands upcoming birthday theme of golfing.( this is subject to change) as my creative ADD could take over haha! Also, I am running in a 5k later this evening with a good friend, wish me luck. Will have pics of all things soon.

Today is the first official day of summer but, my older kids have been in the full swing of chillin out, vegetation state, for about two weeks now. Staying up late, sleeping in, lounging, eating, lounging,...hmm I want a summer break too! :) Anyway, time to start planning some family fun togetherness ( is that an oxymoron when you have teenagers)?  I also have some craft projects that I can start working on...I`ll talk about those later.

Here we go!

This is my first attempt a being a blogger. Please excuse my lack of blog-land knowledge and be patient with me as I am sure to have a bumpy beginning :). Things I am hoping to achieve are- learning new things about everything, sharing ideas on homemaking, parenting, crafting, photography, and on and on. I am looking forward to a new, fun, exciting adventure!

Blessings, Vanessa
