Motivational Monday

It's Monday, which means yet another Motivational Monday quote!! I am really enjoying doing these every Monday. Its really helped me to be a better person throughout the week! I am hoping that it is helping others as well.

I am a big fan of this quote. I am a very sensitive, and emotional person. And more so now that my husband is a police officer! This is a reminder to me that it is okay to show emotions, and not to keep them to myself. I love to think i am a very strong person, but some days you just have to sit back and be emotional.

5 Fun Inexpensive Things To Do This Summer

So being a stay-at-home mommy means that funds are tight in our house! I'm sure lots of people now a days are on a budget of some sort, so today I thought I would share our favorite inexpensive things to do this summer.
 1. I think our top one is defiantly a pool! Whether it be a cheap one you get at Walmart, Toys R Us, etc... Or even splash pads, or a public pool. My kids will spend hrs in ours, and boy do they get along while playing in it.

 2. Is probably our bubble machine we just got. Just like the pool they will spend hrs just running around popping bubbles. Bubble machine are also pretty inexpensive. They also make bubble guns, which my kids also really like. And yes that would be my son popping bubbles with a shovel! :)

 3. Parks- Our backyard is not big enough for a swing set, so we like to go to different parks. We also have a school close by, so while the kids are on spring break we like to walk up (kids like to ride in the wagon) to the school and use the swing set. Sometimes we will pack a lunch and do a picnic at the park.

 4. Zoo- This is a little more costly than the previous 3, but not break the bank expensive. We have not had a chance to make it to the zoo yet this year, but are planning a trip real soon. Once again we usually pack a lunch to take, just to save a little bit of money, and we are not big fans of fast food.

 5. Fishing- we just took the kids fishing a couple weeks ago and they had a blast. It is a little costly if you don't have any supplies already, but it's well worth it to buy them. We just went to Walmart and bought fishing poles and everything else needed and didn't end up spending a whole lot. We also had to buy fishing license but they last up until May of 2015. Now the next time we go all we have to buy is bait, which doesn't cost that much.

 These are our top 5.... Hope everybody is enjoying their summer so far, and maybe check into some of these things. As we find more fun activities maybe I will post another blog about them.

A little about me!

Im back after a short break. The family and I have been going non stop for a while now, and I'm finally able to sit down and blog a little. I thought today i would write a little about my family and I. Lets start off with me. I am almost 27, and I'm a stay at home mommy, I wouldn't change that for the world. Its hard some days, but love spending time with my children.! Before becoming a stay at home mommy i was a daycare teacher for 6 years. My wonderful husband who we will call M. He actually works for my dad, and thats how we met. He is soon to be making a career change to become a police officer. Its something he has always wanted to do. We have been together for 8 years, and married for 6! We are blessed with 2 beautiful children. J who is my oldest. He is 3 going on 20. :) He is very independent, and super smart. Next is my daughter S. She is turning 2 in a couple weeks, and is very sassy and such a bruiser.
  Hope you all enjoyed getting to know a little about me. Also i would like to take a moment to see if there is any topics you guys would like to see me write about. Please leave them in the comments.
