Currently July

BB...I am just meeting the "houseguests". So far I think the guys are pretty awesome.

Summer...is just wonderful. The weather could be nicer, but it's not too hot.

The yard...aka the jungle. It is a never ending job. The weeds we pulled last week are already back.
There's a tree growing into my son's window. I have two plants that are still in the plastic pots I bought them in. But the mosquitoes are baddddd. So....maybe later. Or tomorrow.

Lunch...No idea. The grocery store is another item on the list of things to do.

Needing...getting dressed takes longer these days. {*summer}

I love to organize. But I have no motivation for it today. (see BB above)   :)

Check out more HERE.

Dare to Dream #tptsellerchallenge Week 2

Target is so good at getting me to spend money! My Target habit is under control this week. One day I went in and only bought 2 items. (Even the cashier said I stuck to my mission. Hopefully, she did not recognize me. It is very possible they know me there.)  So far, I have only spent $3 in the new BTS section. :)

I have been looking for a new job for awhile now. So in the meantime, any TPT earnings help. :)

My family loves to travel. Even short weekend trips are fun for my kids. We like to go places we've been, and try new places. :)
