Thank you everyone for the Birthday wishes and support from last Tuesdays post as I learned quite a bit about life and not holding on to bitterness. I appreciate your understanding and advice as well so thank you. I love the blogging community support and all that you all pour into me. You are my inspiration and I thank you.
Every year since having children I have loved nothing more than to print out photos to frame or have custom made as a Birthday or Christmas treat to myself. Since last Wednesday was my Birthday I was contacted just in time by Inkdot to help with this Birthday treat.
Today I am 31! Wow! I was thinking on Sunday that being 30 was probably the best age for me yet, however I am hopeful that this new age and ones to come will be even better.
Before I get on the topic of cold shoulders (more than one) let me start with a few reflections. It is hard to believe that tomorrow I will be 31. It seems like yesterday that I turned 30. For months now I contemplated doing a giveaway or group giveaway or some fun series to celebrate my birthday here on the blog but I kept coming back to keep.it.simple.
Today I have joined my good friend Becky and a few other bloggers for a blog hop where we buy “fun” or “splurge” items at Target with a budget of $10 for the month. This does not include Starbucks, groceries but rather items we consider fun or perhaps had on our wishlists.
To be honest I spent way over my budget of $10 at Target with it being mothers day and my Birthday month so I did buy a few dresses and other decor as my presents to myself as I rarely shop for clothing alone. Aside from dresses for the celebrations of the month of May I did set aside my $10 fun money for other things other than birthday to myself gifts and below is what I came up with.

Around Spring and Summer time my kids almost live outdoors. With the nice temperatures there come water play days, riding bikes or toy cars, blowing bubbles and lots of games. My kids love playing tag, “Red Light, Green Light” and Hide and Seek. Today I am showing you a game that is similar to Hide and Seek or Easter Egg hunting, but with an even bigger prize at the end, and I like to call this game Hiding Treats.

My husband and I have been married for 5 1/2 years now and more often than not he speaks truth, and speaks what I need to hear, what God wants me to hear and understand.
Being a mother is an awesome experience. All of my life I dreamed of being a teacher, writer and mom. While I got all three I realize I may not be the best at each but I sure can make the most of each while I can. For example, I use to be a full time teacher now stay-at-home mom that teaches preschool at church and substitute teaches elementary schools. I wrote two novels in my middle school thru high school years, now this blog. Then I am a mom. A mom to four lovely little kiddos.
Welcome to How I Style It. This is a themed monthly blog hop that a few other bloggers and I have put together to show you how we style different outfits for different themes. Today’s theme is how to style florals (for May flowers, since the last theme was April showers). We all know the April Showers Bring May Flowers right? The rain keeps coming too right into May.
