Just A Thought…




Birthday on a Budget

PicMonkey Collage-4

Sisters Emily and Holly have their birthdays two weeks apart, and both love their American Girl Dolls.

What better way to celebrate than with a dual AG doll themed party.

The party was their idea from the planning to clean up, the girls were a part of it all.

They decided on the fun delicious doll sized treats to the party games and prizes.

The house was full of adorable girls, laughter and memories that will last a long time.

Summer Bucket List

I made this list of fun activities so that we can make the most of our summer.


I hate when kids say I’m bored.

I hate being bored, too.


I love a challenge.

It’s going to be a great summer!

Did I leave anything out?

What are your plans for the summer?

Reading List

Book of the Month

I think I should have read this in high school but I didn’t.

I was a slacker.

(shhh, don’t tell the kids.)

I am now ready to read this book for my book club. She said in her best british accent.

…and what is Book Club you ask?


I could be snarky and say Google it

but then you might and you would leave my little blog and I don’t want that.

So, Book Club is:

1. A group of women who can read

2. A book they have all read

3. A bottle of wine

4. A set of discussion questions

5. More wine

6. And fun!

Join one or start one.

And as if hanging out, taking about books wasn’t enough we are all going to see the movie together. I’ll let you know how it is later. How they both are.
