The better to see with...

I got some new glasses today.

I've been wearing glasses ever since I was assigned a desk in the very back of the class in 9th grade and discovered that I couldn't see the board at the front of the room. At first I didn't like wearing glasses. It didn't help that kids already were calling me names like "nerd" and "freckle face"...add glasses to my shy, insecure, freckled self and I was just the definition of a nerdy nobody. (High School was hard ;) ) When I was finally able to get contact lenses, I jumped on the opportunity and put away the glasses for many years.  Since then, my eyes have been slowly getting worse, and contacts have been increasingly annoying and painful to wear. A few years ago I made a slow transition from always wearing contacts and rarely wearing glasses to always wearing glasses and rarely wearing contacts. In fact, this last time I had an eye exam I didn't even get the contact lens exam...I'm an all-glasses all-the-time girl now. ;) And I'm ok with that. I've become a LOT more secure in my own skin and have (finally) fully embraced my poor eyesight and my need for glasses. I actually even like them now. :)

Hip Hip HOORAY! It's Summer Vacay!

Today is the last day of the school year here!! Woo Hoo!! (We survived the first year of middle school!! Now THAT's something worth celebrating! ;) )

We're gonna kick off this summer with a splash! When the girls get home, I'll have this crate full of water fun waiting for them! I picked up a new slip-n-slide, a bucket full of water balloons, and some water guns...then I blew up a few balloons and made a little "Hip Hip Hooray! It's Summer Vacay!" sign to finish it off.  Super easy, but lots of fun!

A Pretty Little Meal Plan & Grocery List

At the beginning of last year, I made myself some lists and plans to help me stay organized and on top of housework and home stuff. I still like those little lists and I use them quite a bit. But I've been updating them a bit lately (partly because I just love playing around with making new graphics, and partly because I needed to tweak the lists to make them work a little better for me ;) ). So today I'm sharing my new Meal Plan & Grocery List:
