Summer is here!


Summer is here, which means lots of fun in the sun. Lucky for us we live less the 5 minutes from Lake Lewisville and a “beach”. This was the second trip so far, the first was fun for Ian but Ollie in the other hand was not a fan. He hated everything, I hope it grows on him.


It’s Friday, Friday, Friday; OHHHH

So here we are it is Friday again so many things I should be thankful for but I am stumbling this week. I have been stumbling all week, I can’t quiet put a finger on all the things I have been stumbling over but I know that some are molehills while others are more. This week is a bit of a mish-mash of things that make me happy both old and new.

I was lucky enough to receive a bible from my pastor last week, it is what I have been looking for in a bible basic simple the scripture isn’t mixed with study materials. Those are places on the bottom of the page. Not that I have used it like I have should this week, sorry C and W as soon as this post is finished I am going to catch up.


Then there is the always present protector of our family. Even if she is cranky that her food and water bowls must go up when Ollie is up now, he has discovered them and just like his brother finds dog food a delectable treat.

From last night but ever present watching over her babies.

I don’t know why but the fact that the converse I found at the thrift store months ago match Ian’s soccer colors make me so happy. Yes I am that mom, he may only be three but I try to support by wearing matching colors. I guess I was never meant to blend in, I am the only parent that dresses in yellow.

The fact that I know that my family and friends that might as well be family always have my back when I need them.

I couldn’t think of a 5th so I went with this internet meme, I like the way Fi thinks sometimes.

I am hoping to figure out how to recharge and feel better during naptime today.

It is that time of year again, it  is time to start planting.  As someone who doesn't have the greenest of thumbs, I need all the help I can get.  All the garderners I knew growing up with loved Mircale-Gro. Well I am excited to get the chance to help introduce Mircale-Gro Expand 'n Gro planting mix. 

Mircale-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ is concentradted so when water is added it expands by up to 3 times, it's all nautral fibers( which coconut coir is at heart of) hold up to 50% more water then basic potting soil. Which help produce up to 3 times as many plants and vegetables as water alone. It feed the plants for up to 6 months past your intial planting.

What is coconut coir, you ask. Well coir is a lightweight, all natural material dervied from coconut husk. Coir consist of two compotents: fiber (both long and short) and pith. Which when combined with Mircale-Gro plant food helps produce amazing results. 

I should try Expand ‘n Gro™when I plant my small pots of pentuinas this year. Maybe it will help me keep them alive longer then a few weeks. Be sure to try Expand ‘n Gro™ when you do your planting this spring.  Tell me what is your garderning secrets?
