The Latest and Greatest

How about some bullet points (my friend Kim loves these), or in my case squiggly lines to let you know what's happening in my world?

~ My son turned 12 yesterday.  Big sigh.  I didn't realize how sentimental I would be about the number 12.  But he is turning into a young man, no longer just a boy.  And I mentioned on FB that he is close to 5'4" already and in a size 10 men's shoe.  I have had a few tears the last couple of days, but I'll be fine.  On to new adventures!
Who said this sweet little guy could grow up?

~ I don't have any more no-bake posts for you.  Shocking, I know - LOL! I gave you chocolate no-bake recipes, non-chocolate no-bake recipes, and traditional no-bake cookies - what more could you possibly need? :)

~ My giveaway for a copy of Notes to Aspiring Writers: Your Dreams, God's Plan is still open, but closing soon! Read my review and enter the giveaway!**Giveaway closed. Congrats to Mary Beth!**

~ It's R&R month over at Pennies and Blessings!  That means everybody will be taking it easy and sharing great links for you to read.  But more importantly - this is **Giveaway Week** over there to celebrate Mandy's birthday and a belated Blogiversary!!  Be sure to stop by and enter giveaways all week!

~ I plan to post an update on my baking soda hair-washing.  Yes, I don't use shampoo and instead wash my hair with baking soda and apple cider vinegar.  Crazy, huh?!  I recently took pics of my hair for a week so I could show you how it turns out.  I hope to post that sometime this week.

~ Remember I mentioned that I wanted to do a blog series?  Well, I have the topics for the series figured out and the intro post mostly written - in my world of procrastination - so I want to post that Intro this week (which will then force me to get the next post done!!).  The series is about encouraging bloggers - why you should start blogging or keep blogging even if you're new, small, nicheless, penniless, etc.  Don't be intimidated by all the blogging info out there - you can do it your own way and it's OKAY!  :)

~ I'll try to post a recipe this week too - maybe Lemon Blueberry Muffins (they were yummy).  How does that sound?

~ In real life this week: more birthday celebrating for the kiddo, Boy Scouts, getting together with friends, kiddo getting his bottom braces on, and a baseball game followed by fireworks!

Got all that?  :)  You know you want to leave me a comment with your thoughts and input!  What's the latest and greatest in your life?

Have a super day friends!!


  1. I know that J wanted to send a card to B so I'm not sure what happened. I'll have to give him a reminder. Better late than never I always say.

    Can't wait for your new series, maybe it'll help me. LOL!

    And pronto on that recipe my friend. That sounds good!

    Big I've still got 4.9lbs of baking soda if you need any size hugs to you!

    Have a fabulous day my friend!

  2. Oops. That of course was from me. I'm on the other computer where Kelsey stays signed in. OY! I can't wait till MY computer is fixed. LOL!

  3. Ok, I tried the baking soda/vinegar thing...about the time you originally tried it, or we talked about it or something. I gave up after 2 days of nasty feeling/looking hair. You mean it gets better????? I can't wait for your update...I MIGHT try again if you encourage me.. sigh.

    Sorry your boy is growing's so wrong of them to do this to us...sigh, LOL. :)

  4. Ok, that was really funny. I read that first post and was like...huh..Kelsey sure sounds like Kim here...weird. LOL...then I read Kim's update. lol

  5. Wow! I can't believe B is now 5' 4"! They grow so darn fast....

    And I am interested to hear about the baking soda experiment and your blog series.

    See you very soon, my friend!

  6. Wow, that is a big 12 year old... happy birthday to him!
