1st Day of School

Yesterday was the 1st day of school for my kids. My son Thomas (in above photos) is in 4th Grade now. My oldest son Nick started 11th Grade (wouldn't let me take his picture at 6:45am, guess I can't blame him). I look forward to the 1st day just like most mom's.... I really need the "routine" of the school year just as much, if not more then my kids do.
It has been a long/ crazy/weird summer , between the weather not really cooperating , my step-grandson being born 2 months early, Nick having Driver's Ed classes 4x's a week for 3 weeks
and lots of in-law drama it really has thrown me "off". So I have been waiting for school to start not just to get my kids out of the house, but for the structure that the school year brings.
I need new things, new postitive things to focus on..... This will be my first year serving as Vice President of Thomas' school's PTO and I have to say I am looking forward to planning all the fun events we have in mind. This year is also very important for Nick, as a Junior he will be taking his SAT's and will get his license in the next couple of months.
So I am hoping this year brings lots of great memories for all of us and all of you!!

Trying to win a $500 Walmart giftcard (part 2)

I am going to try this one more time.........cuz I really want to win this $500 Walmart giftcard from my friend Sandy at Orgainze with Sandy. Apparently I had A.D.D when it comes to reading rules, and I left out some requirements in order to win.

This contest couldn't have come at a better time for me, I had just been thinking to myself that my son Thomas' room could use a redo. He is 8yrs old and I haven't done much to his room in last few years. He doesn't spend much time in there and I do think it's cuz it is sooo "Blahh".

If I win (did I mention, I really want/need to win) the giftcard is to be used on Walmart's "Your Zone" product line. It is an awesome line of bedding/ room decor/furniture geared toward teenagers. I know Thomas is only 8yrs old but the product line would work just fine for his "new" room. When I went online to there were alot of things that I would purchase. Here is my "wishlist" : Your Zone Reversible Comforter and Sham Set, Hot Chocolate Stripe/Brown Cane, your zone loft collection speaker headboard, hot chocolate, twin, and for fun because it is his favorite "word" to say these days Your Zone BFF and LOL Hook, Set of 2 ( I would spraypaint them to match his room). That is all I can think of right now, so if you want your chance to win go check out Sandy's Blog for all the details.

I am warning you though, I really want this one so I am going to do what it takes to win this for my son. As you can tell by the phots, he has bad that will be another thing I will purchase with the giftcard, LIGHTING.
