Welcome

I am a 31 year old working mom. I have two children ages 6 & 8. I am newly remarried (two years and counting) and enjoy spending time with the hubs! Even though life is busy I try to take a little time to show what is going on in my world. This blog is mainly for daily happenings, finances and such. I have created a whole new blog at Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker to chronicle my creative sides. You will find recipes, cooking adventures, crafts and a whole lot of digital scrapbook layouts.

ENJOY!

Hey Sharon!
Thanks for tagging me...do I get to tag somebody now? Is that how it works?

Medieval Times is lots of fun. I was there on an orchestra tour in high school. I hope you get to go!

I have one post that I haven't finished yet...but after I update, I will totally post my 50 random things.

I only learned to e-mail a little over a year ago...I know this sounds dumb of me...but, what does BTW mean? I finally learned j/k is "joking" and LOL is "laugh out loud". Thanks for your patience with me--I am learning :)
