Alive, free and a smile...

New Dolce’s from the Eye Shop Clearwater

Shot my first fish, swam with a shark and some huge spotted rays – no biggie… :)

my lover boy…

My heart, outside of my body, my life, my loves. Thank You for all you are to me.

I haven’t been blogging very much I got a little de-inspired and after a long few months climbing some major mountains. I am back… I just can’t seem to find the time in my days to write and post photos…

But here I am loving my little boys, who are both healthy and have been all summer. Jet had surgery – adnoids out, sinus cultures, and a few other things.

They are growing so fast, my love for them reaches to the stars and back one hundred billion times. I see them in their tiny little bodies and the things they can do, think about and say. They truly amaze me each and every day.

Conner wakes up smiling (sometimes) he has taught me so much. I just want to say one thing. You will always look across the street and think the grass looks greener, but nurture yours even when you think your grass looks dead! It will come back and you will be happy that you maintained your life!

nite, nite…

Detoxification cleanse - Coconut Lime Margarita

I cannot wait to try this Coconut Lime Margarita this weekend.
I can hardly handle the excitement of being able to drink an adult beverage. My cleanse is going well. I started it about 12 days ago and have cut out caffeine, sugar, gluten, and dairy, beer and Wine, I have Vodka and soda or a margarita like this one on the weekends so i can have a tiny bit of fun! I am also throwing down 4 herbal pills and 40 drops of an herbal cleanse I found at the health food store twice a day! I feel good, I really really do. I have energy again!
Not sure if you knew or not but I was sick real sick, My body ached I had a cold that I couldn’t get rid of and two of my disks were bulging. I feel so much better since the cleanse started and

Kids Playroom Storage…

How awesome are these animal jars to store all of that junk you just keep throwing into closets and boxes… Spray paint the animals all different shades of one color or have a theme of bugs, sheep, or birds…
Can’t wait to do this one…
