I will be leaving for vacation on Saturday.  I have so much to do before we leave that I do not know if I will get it all done.  We are going to be staying up in Ludington MI at a resort.  He have rented a cabin for the week.  I am really excited for our first (of many) family vacation, and for a week away from everything.  I hope that everybody has a great week and I will post when I get back!

Amazing Monday

I just could not wait for Wordless Wednesday for this one.  This is my Nephew at my cousin's wedding this past Saturday.  He told his parents "I want to dance at Nat's wedding with a group of people around me!"  Sure enough he did.  Check it out.  It is a little long of a video but the best move is at the end.  (Remember he is only 4 years old!)

Great News

For those of you that follow my blog you know that I made an earlier post about a classmate/friend of mine that went missing from Boston.  I got the best news today...She is home!  She was found in Mexico and was picked up by the US Embassy.  That is all of the information that I have right now because she is not allowed to release any other information at this time.  I am just happy that she is safe.  I am wondering what happened while she was gone but I am sure the story will come out soon.  I am just happy that she is safe and that her daughter has her mommy back.  All of this has made me realized that I need to cherish the friendships that I have and had in the past.  I had not seen Amber much since we graduated from High School back in 2001.  I did play Softball on rec teams against her a couple times.  But the last time I talked with her was in the grocery store when I ran into her.  I have been replaying that conversation in my mind a lot lately.  We were able to talk like it was just yesterday that we were back in school but it had been years.  Amber has always a happy and outgoing person and she was always there for people when they needed her.  I am so glad that there is a happy ending to this story.  Thank You for your Prayers!  They were answered!

Thirsty Thursday - Dailys Cocktails

With the heat lately I wanted something that was cold and fruity so when I saw these I bought a couple.  All you have to do is throw them in the freezer.  (in our local supermarket there are some that are already frozen)When you are ready for one just squeeze the pouch up and put it in a glass and ENJOY!  They are only $2 a pouch and there are 2 drinks per pouch.  I have tried the following flavors and I like each one. 
  • Peach Daiquiri

  • Pomegranate Margarita

  • Strawberry Daiquiri

  • Frozen Pouches
