On the brink of a big change

Lately I've been feeling like I've got a lot of things that I want to do but not so many that I'm actually accomplishing. Here's my short list of things that top my list of what I want to do but that aren't quite happening for me.
  1. Go back to school and get my sixth year or doctorate. This would mean a pay increase but it would also be cool for my students to have to call me Dr. I am also one of people who love being a student myself and learning new things.
  2. My father is from Colombia and I really want to take a trip with him to visit my family and bring my girls but my husband thinks they are too young for international travel.
  3. Get my lia sophia business going. I think I thought that it was going to easy and I would have to keep after people so much to get them to hostess shows.
  4. Take care of myself and enjoy the summer but I'm too stressed out thinking about the changes. I wish I could be more like my girls and just float along and go with the flow.
I will admit, I don't do well with change. I like things how they are but I'm trying to stay positive. My hubby's company is being sold and his soon to be bosses want him too. This also means new responsibility and a big change in the hours that he works. He was pretty much on a Monday through Friday and home by 6:00 kind of schedule. This will not be the case any more. Who knows this could end up being a job he loves. We won't know until he tries it.So my plan is to enjoy the rest of the summer because before I know it I'll be back to school with a whole new group of kiddos. I guess the rest of my list will have to wait :)

Tomorrow she's six

Gillian had her party at Snip-its on Saturday. She had a wonderful time! The girls all got their hair done, made crowns, did their makeup, walked the red carpet, and enjoyed birthday cupcakes. We originally planned a bowling party but once I heard about this I knew it was perfect for her. It will be hard to beat next year.

Her she is walking the red carpet after getting glamorous.

Freeze dance was a favorite at this party. It seems like it always is wherever we go lately.

Thanks and some summer fun

I'm so excited to have won and the Magic Bullet. I've been having so much fun making yummy creations with this. I've tried margaritas, ice coffee, muffins and even sauce tonight. It's so easy! Thanks again to Michele at Mamatalk for doing this giveaway. She's got a great blog that I've been following for quite a while now. You should check her out. Her stories always make me smile.

It's that time of year again. Carnival season. The rides, the junk food, the games and spending money. This one happens to benefit the church so at least it's going to a good cause.

A big goal this summer is for Gillian to learn to swim. I feel like I've waited too long but a good friend of my who is also a high school swim coach is giving her lessons this summer. Hopefully that will do the trick and we won't need all this gear to go in the pool by the end of the summer. I'm a swimmer so I don't get it. I was never afraid of the water.

I hope you're all out enjoying all the fun the summer has to offer and staying cool.
