Having a ball

One step closer to being a teenager, my kid already has the rolling eyes and attitude perfected!

What could be better than having your birthday at the beach? Not much, I would have to say.

Well...maybe having a bowling party with (almost) all your bff's would be good too.

But best of all would be having a mom who totally rocks at making an awesome birthday cake!

Time for a little break

With the crazy schedule of late the girls
and I are off to the beach for a little break.

I probably should have been a little more clear on what kind of break I meant.

Because THIS is not it!

I have been a bad blogger. Not so clever, and not so funny. As with most things, it is not my fault. I am being held hostage by my yard!

Who knew that having a graduation party in July meant that you needed to start yard prep in March??

I have had lots of help.

Lots of good luck as well, and our veggie garden is doing quite well already.

We have some new additions like swiss chard and broccoli, as well as tons of peas.

Shelling peas is when I am glad I have given birth to so many helper slaves!

I told my sister that I thought our strawberries were on their last legs. I would probably pull them up and start over. Well....I think they heard, and now I am overrun with berries!

Waiting in line at Ikea for hours to purchase rain barrels was well worth the money I will save on my water bill!!

Can't wait till the point when I can relax and just ENJOY the garden. Oh, who am I kidding?? I will always be able to find something to do in it!
