I need to start getting Organized

I've been doing some research lately on how to get more organized with some things and found a lot of good information out there. I've always been a very organized person and love to be organized, but lately I've been so un-organized and need to get myself back on track before I love everything and my mind :)

So, Any who. First of all I want to have more of a budget for things. Such as grocery shopping. We've never really had a budget, but I think organizing my spending on groceries and things might be more helpful to me for planning dinners and who know by doing this I might even save some money. That is always a plus. 
This website has been super helpful with some idea's and I got to download a meal planner PDF and a grocery List PDF. It's pretty awesome and excited to get started with it and use it soon. 

If you have any meal planning or recipe ideas for me send them my way.

Sccccchhhhhhooooooooools Out For Summer!

So today marks the last day of the spring 2010 semester. Thanks Goodness! It was a very long semester. Working full time and being a full time student and having a little 22 month old girl is not easy. It's been late nights, running back in forth between, home, school and work. It gets real tough when you don't have enough time for you all the time. I took 5 classes this semester and about killed myself, but then again I did it. Ian has been a huge help and without him school would not be possible for me. So thanks to Ian.

I finally decided to change my major and become declared. I changed it to Elementary Education. As long as I could remember I wanted to be a teacher, so for once I'm no longer doing what everyone else wants me to do, but what I want to do. So, I'm going for it. 

I can't wait for the summer to kick off and really get started. We are moving into a bigger place in a couple of weeks and everything is moving along nicely and smoothly. After I get the house and us settled, I can't wait to get back into my scrap booking and catch up on my reading and do some other projects with Mackenna. It's going to be so nice to be home for the summer and not to worry about when the next assignment, exam or paper is due.

Here's to a great Summer!

Las Vegas for Autumn and Jessica's Bach Party

Couple of weekends ago 8 girls and 2 brides were hitting up the strip in Las Vegas. It was an awesome weekend. Plenty of drinking, gambling, poolside relaxing. I can't disclose all the details of the events of that weekend because, "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!" I can't wait for the wedding in August. It was such a good time.

Mother's Day and Moving to Glenshire

Good Morning,
We are officially moving to a 3 bedroom house in Glenshire. Can't wait to move into a bigger place and have more space. Last night I packed 7 more boxes and still feel as if I have a million other things to pack.

Yesterday, Ian and his dad made eggs benedict. It was so good. Ian also surprised me with a necklace from Zales. My first Mom necklace.

Busy 2 weeks ahead of packing and some more packing... but very excited for the new place.

On the hunt for a bigger house in Truckee

So, we have been looking for a bigger place with a yard in Truckee the last few weeks and so far nothing. We would like to be in Glenshire if we can. 

If anyone knows where we can find a place in Glenshire, let us know.

Mackenna's New Friend

A lot has been going on this month. It's starting to finally starting to show signs of spring in the Truckee/Tahoe area. The last week has been absolutely beautiful. Today is going to be a high of 55 degrees.
Mackenna has a new friend Kiaya and they get to play together all day now. She get's very upset when Kieara doesn't bring Kiaya over. Mackenna is getting very big and can now sing her own ABC's almost all the way through all by herself.

I volunteered at the Rotary Crab feed last weekend and we raised $14,500 for the Kid-Zone, so hopefully we can redo some of the exhibits and get some new things in there for the kids. So this is going to be exciting for the kids.

This month we have tried to get caught up on everything and get our last play days in the snow. Here are some photos of Mackenna and one of her new friend.

Deciding to give this another try.

So, I thought this was really cool when I first started one a while back. But, then I figured the only person reading this is me. haha. So I'm going to try and give this another go and get my family to start one as well.
