So we made it back last night after a wonderful trip to the Homestead and a quick stop at my Dads to have lunch with Grammy (funny how I still call it my Dads just can't seem to call it anything other than that) and I got everything unpacked and ready to wash today so Mrs. Vic could iron everything this week and I guess I didn't check that one pocket that had that black ink pen full of black ink in it!! I have never had this happen before but it went everywhere in the wash all over some great things and I am so mad at myself for not checking better. If any of you have any ideas how to get ink that has been washed and dried (thanks to Mrs. Vic who thought she was helping) out let me know. I hate to think of replacing the nice shirts that were in there (Polo, Vineyard Vines and Southern Tide) because they were only 1 week old not to mention most of Brady's khaki shorts were in there to, what a waste!!!!!!!!

Well I am back from my Extreme Boot Camp. It was amazing exercise and hard. My trainers were amazing!!! There were some very interesting people there in the camp with me that were a little on the crazy side. I realized it takes all kinds to make the world go round. When you think you have been through a tragedy there is always someone with a bigger one and you just stop and say THANK YOU LORD. I am unpacking and then repacking the whole family to head out to this wonderful place that I love.

We are taking our Sitter Erin with us to help out but we plan on having a great vacation together as a family. Some much needed fun!!! Like a little of this and some fly fishing for Brady.
I do plan on getting up at 6am and doing a little training and tennis with the pro so I don't get out of my routine. Have a great week.

As the song goes "I WILL SURVIVE" or at least that is what I keep telling myself at this point in the week. This is a little example of one of our days bullet style.
>5:30am head out to Yoga
>7:00 protein shake (NASTY) then head out to a location for bootcamp this was a park in St. Augustine for this day and work out for a hour and half.
>Then 6 mile walk through the town
>bananna for a snack and another NASTY protein drink
>back to the resort for lunch. Salad with chicken no dressing
>then off to workout with the trainer one on one
>then to the spa for some weight training
>1 hour massage
>free for the night (you are so tired you only want to go to bed)

So this is a day in my week for those of you who wanted to know. I WILL SURVIVE!!!!!

Yep that's what they are saying. I am CRAZY! You see I really didn't want to be around for Fathers Day this year. The closer it was getting I was becoming more anxious about it. I miss my Daddy so much I just don't even want to be around to celebrate it, I am just not ready yet. Well because this guy below is understanding and doesn't mind me not being here for Fathers Day he is letting me go to for a week, this is where the crazy comes in. I will be on a beautiful beach resort with a beautiful spa and lots of nice places to eat but I will not be eating in them, I will be getting a spa treatment everyday!!!! Yeah!!!!

This is what I will be doing from sun up to sun down!!! I guess it is a little crazy to actually pay to be put through the ringer. We will start at 6am with Yoga then breakfast then the trainer and I will start with a run/walk on the beach then to the gym some water aerobics and much more.

So hopefully I will fell like this at the end of the week. I will let you all know in detail when I return. Keep me in your prayers that the trainer doesn't just kill me the first day.

I saw this on another blog so for a little Friday fun I took the test on
to see what kind of Mom I was. I am a "KIDS FIRST MOM" I wasn't sure what the breakdown would be but this sounds right.
Have a great weekend.

So every day I go online to the camp website and look at all the pictures that have been posted for that day. Well yesterdays picture deserves a post! Look at that red headed, red body kid dancing away. This picture just cracks me up every time I look at it. My Aunt asked me did I think Brady enjoys camp and I always say yes he seems to have a good time. Well seeing this picture I know he has a good time. I will leave in the morning to head to the mountains to pick him up, its about a 3 hour drive from door to door then I will be leaving on my adventure on Saturday. I will post before I leave got one more project before I leave to get him in the morning, my bathroom cabinets. Have a great Thursday!!!!

Well I am finished with the big project that I have been avoiding for some time now. And I must admit it feels great!!! When we bought this house 2 years ago to remodel I had California Closet do all the closets and the only closet that it really never helped was mine. My other closet in our old house two doors down from this one, the closet was much larger and I had two but I still could not keep them up. I am a slacker when it comes to my closet. I realize if I keep it up better it would be so much easier to pack when we travel. Easier said than done for me. I am going to do my best at this from now on and keep it organized and when I buy something new, let go of something old. Have a great Wednesday!!

We have been very busy around here. The last week of school was crazy with South Carolina Day (pictures to follow one day when I get time) end of the year party and finishing up baseball this Tuesday with trophies and a party to follow then its off to CAMP on Sunday. Brady goes to a great camp for a week every year since 1st grade and he loves it ( I love it to gives me a week to catch up after a year of school). He goes fishing, swims, archery, games and much more fun and makes lots of new friends each year. All in all he has a BLAST at camp!
I have been working on a big project at my house, for those of you who know me you will understand when I say BIG. My closet! I hate and I do mean hate to clean out my closet. I keep a very tidy clean house you can drop in anytime and you can go through the whole house and it will be in order most of the time everywhere except for my closet!! Don't ask me why this is so hard for me but it is. Mikee can't stand it. It drives him CRAZY. So with that said I am cleaning it out, giving away everything that I have not worn in a year. I do have allot of clothes but I find myself wearing the same things over and over, you know the basic stuff so why not bless someone with the things I don't wear right?? Easier said than done for me all the clothes out of my closet are on the bed and floor (we are sleeping in the guest) and have been for the past two days and I can't seem to finish or even come close to it. I will finish this week sometime in between my mosaic class I am taking and because I have to get Brady packed and
ready to go to camp. So wish me luck on this major task and hopefully I will post some after pictures for you on what I did.
Have a great week!!!!
