March Reflection

March was a month that was good. I can’t really complain as I do some reflection. It wasn’t one that completely stands out, but there sure were some good days!

Ryley finished up her tutoring and I can completely say with confidence that this program put on by some of the teachers was a success for my child. She gained confidence and you can tell that in her work. She actually shares her papers with us and wants to do her work!

Ryley also turned 7. My middle child is 7. Oh this makes my heart hurt for sure.

My middle….

The next week my in-laws came to visit which always is a good time. We experienced a place to eat called the “Waffle King” and of course some of our favorites like The Fort Mitchell Grill. You can never go wrong with a burger from there.

Then the night I had been waiting for – the 4th RTB Ball. I love getting dressed up and being taken out. I even got to dance and I did get to meet new people and enjoy myself. I loved it. We were one of the last ones to leave and we got home before midnight. I can’t wait till next year all ready! (Not really any pictures since I didn’t take my phone so I could really enjoy myself)

The next week I took my youngest and her friend to a movie at the National Infantry Museum. We watched Cinderella on a HUGE screen for free. I like free!

Easter was filled with fun with my sister, niece, and brother-in-law. I love family visits and they always seen to go too fast. We did get to watch my Abby get an award for making the A Honor Roll both the 2nd and 3rd Nine Weeks of School. I am pretty proud to say the least!

The weekend also had Fred & Lester’s Restaurant, grilling out back, and a crab boil. Mmmmmm

Easter dinner!

Soccer started yesterday and should provide some excitement to say the least. I just hope that Ryley scores more than 1 goal to top last year, and Abby remembers that she is not the only kid playing on the team 😉

How was your march?

List #1

List #1 in the new place. I know you have been waiting for one of my lists – it has been a while!

I made a video! Have you check it out yet?

Finally feeling somewhat settled. Not completely, but we are getting there!

I got the internet somewhat figured out. Whatever happened to unlimited?

No schedule set in stone for me. Still need to figure out how to get house chores, workouts, and Bailey taken care of 100% while I get all my work done as well. My work gets done – I feel like the others are neglected and I don’t like that feeling.

I am thinking of setting up a bi-weekly coffee date/play date with other military families around me – we will see how it goes!

I hope Nick gets his schedule from work soon, so I can maybe plan for taking a couple classes at the gym on base.

Having more time outside is a fantastic feeling. I really enjoyed playing outside with Bailey yesterday and seeing the girls off the bus. It allowed everyone to play and get energy out before school work and dinner commenced.

I am enjoying being home and do feel that I am productive – it is that I get easily distracted!

I think I need to put some things in writing so that I can see what I need to do.

I think Laundry is calling my name!

What are some things you do to stay on track, organized, and get it almost all done?

A New Reason To Mail Something!

Ah, the holiday season is upon us. They are already counting down how many Fridays are left for Christmas shopping and it is still September. Yup – tis the season folks! Last year we had a friend take some amazing family pictures and with the hustle and bustle of the season, I waited too long to get my cards done, used a 1 hour photo, and then never mailed them. Why? I just didn’t really like them in the end.  I felt I wasn’t doing the amazing pictures justice!  The year prior I used an amazing website to order them called Minted and I did it with plenty of time and got them mailed. I loved them!

When I first had heard about the site I was figuring it was going to have similar designs just like every site seems to have. I was sadly mistaken. They had some of the most creative layouts around! The best part, is that most layouts even had different color options! After the holidays I needed some business cards for a new venture I had became part of.  Everyone I knew of was using the same company that advertised lots of cards for a cheap price. Again – everyone I knew had similar looking cards. Or the same card for different types of businesses. Not good for a first impression in my mind.  I found new and exciting layouts, different color options, and my favorite part – TRIPLE think business cards!!  These were my top three:

MIN-8UP-BSC-001_A_PD MIN-91L-BSC-001_C_PD MIN-Y36-BSC-001_A_PD

All of these could be personalized and you could change the colors on them! I love them! I ended up going with the middle one and couldn’t be any happier with my choice! If only I could say with one profession long enough to use them all!

The time is also going to come when we need to move away from Alaska. We have a ton of people that will want our new address when we finally get one. I was searching through the website and found some super cute moving announcements. Again – here are my top there. The one with the trailer full of stuff will most likely be it, because my husband does want to carry some stuff via trailer. Not my idea of a good time, but I could use this cute card! Not to mention the super cute reference to the Disney movie Up!

MIN-58X-MVA-001_B_PD MIN-70X-MVA-001_A_PD MIN-77X-MVA-001_A_PD

Sincerely though, this is not to mention the fact that you can get stationary, kids stationary, and so much more from this website. Quality is top notch, and this is basically the best part, besides that you get to look at the mock up after the designer finishes it! One last check never hurt anyone! I couldn’t be happier with the service I received last time I ordered. I don’t think I will ever order from another site again, not matter what kind of deal they offer. They just can’t beat the quality, style, or personal touch service that Minted offers. If you didn’t have a reason to mail something before – these cards will make you find a reason!

Why don’t you go and check it out and let me know which one you would pick if you were to move!

I was asked to do a review on Minted from them directly. I am getting free merchandise credit in return. This would not change my opinion as I have stated before, I have used their services before and I love it!
