Beach Babes and Beach Bunny but Where’s my Beach Hunny?

Standard

Today was a perfectly lovely day! The weather was sunny yet cool. The wind was just right. The water was calm. The kiddos swam and played for hours.

I feel content yet discontent at the same time. I find myself wanting more. I’m loving all the time I’m spending with my kiddos, working their summer camp. It’s a blast. However, it would be nice if Mr Right instead of Mr Right Now would make an appearance in my life sooner than later.

The idea of sharing my life with someone other than my children is starting to grow on me. How many frogs does this girl have to kiss?

Music Feeds My Soul – Do You Like You?

Video

I just heard this song today and I absolutely love it! Colbie Caillat is such a beautiful person inside and out. I think this song sends a great message to women everywhere.

I myself am victim of feeling the need to conform to societies image of the “perfect” woman in so many ways. It’s sad that our daughters, sisters, friends and so on are growing up thinking that they have to look a certain way to be beautiful. There is so much more to life than physical appearance. I really love this video and the message that it delivers.

I hope that my daughter grows up knowing that she is beautiful inside and out whether she is fresh-faced or made up. It’s really what is on the inside that matters most.

Music Feeds My Soul – The Weekend Jam

Video

I am in LOVE with Sia! She is just so talented and unique, verging on strange. Anyhow this song has been pumping through my speakers all weekend. The kiddos and I just love singing along to it (even though we can’t hit a single note).

Another song that I LOVE singing along to right now is the new track by Lady A. Honestly I’m not a huge fan of Lady Antebellum but I can listen to this song on repeat for hours! It’s just so fun and relevant to my life as a single lady. Enjoy!

 

There Goes the Neighbourhood

Standard

The neighbourhood is going to have to get itself some new entertainment. This momma has curtains at last! It’s only been almost ten months since I moved in. People surely have better things to do then watch my kiddos and I. Thanks to my mom for teaching me how to shorten/sew these lovely Ikea panels.

I’m really happy with the end result. Loving the look of my living room. It’s so cozy and creeper free now!

Summer Camp Exploring

Standard

We went exploring at camp today! It was a lot of fun and it got the children all pumped up. A day in nature is just what this momma needed!

The kiddos in my camp love bugs, snakes, tadpoles, fish… anything that moves really. So they were really excited to find a bunch of fish in the stream. They took advantage of our bug nets to catch and release.

As a young child I NEVER would have touched any of these little critters. If you can’t beat them though join them. I held a little floppy fish and I lived to tell the tail.

Should I stay or should I go…

Standard

I’m feeling slightly lost in life right now. I hit a breaking point a few weeks ago that made me realize that I was NOT happy in my work environment.

Don’t get me wrong I loved seeing both of my children through kindergarten, working with other children and being a role model. I however couldn’t handle standing by watching my son be bullied anymore.

An older boy threatened to kill my son multiple times this past year. I tried to talk to the parent of the boy but nothing came of it. I found myself getting upset about the situation and the lack of support I was recieving. So… I quit my job!

I know without a doubt this was the right decision for myself. The moment I told my boss that I have no intention of returning to the school in the fall I felt instant relief. I’m just not sure if it was the right decision for my family though.

I’m working summer camp for the next couple months but what comes next? I’m terrified of dropping the ball. My children both depend on me seeing how I’m the sole provider for our family. I’m really hoping that I am able to find work for the fall. I’m really stressed about what the outcome of my choice could be.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.
