Good morning Ladies, I am writing on friday to start the post as I am going to “Day of the Dozers” with our 2 older boys early Saturday morning!It is an hour drive away. This has become an annual event where kids get to go in the cab of bulldozers , diggers excavators etc . and scoop up dirt with the professional operators. This is a wonderful idea for kids and the proceeds go to charity. It will be from 9am and we will stay until noon or so. Then our daughter has softball which is on the way home so we will stop there and watch her. Its divide and conquer when it comes to the kids sometimes , us parents will have 2 and 2!
We are expecting our first frost today also ! Brrr , its too early!
I would like to introduce Rachel (Rach) today as our featured model! She is a lovely young woman originally from Texas but now living in Georgia . She is married to Patrick and they has 3 dogs which she loves! She has a fun about page on her blog which you can click on to find out so much more about her. She is another Lady worth following!

Hello all, I am starting this post on Friday afternoon, Our daycare Lady has the day off and I took it off to mind our youngest. I am glad actually , its a nice excuse for a long weekend! I dropped the bigger kids at school , hung out with our little guy then we went to have lunch with the two boys. There is a special seat for visiting Parents in the lunchroom , but when Liam seen us he refused to move from his friends! Maybe a little embarassed he did eventually join us. Then our 3rd grader was very happy to see us and we sat with his friends. I wanted to go to an orchard just with the little guy but it had rained for four days and the ground was saturated. Today we have softball but a quiet weekend apart from that.
I would like to introduce you to Bonnie! She is a lovely woman ( some of you know her already, its how I found her!) She loves fashion and stylish clothes. She wants to help women to find great items of clothing on a budget. She wants to inspire us to look fabulous no matter the age!

Good morning Ladies , I hope you are well. The temps are staying warm here , this weekend is going to reach 87 F or 30 c . We will leave our pool up- for another week . I am looking forward to fall and visiting one, two or three orchards in the coming weeks. Do you like Fall, or what is your favorite Season? Last weekend was pretty low key, We did have softball for our daughter on Sunday in a town half an hour south of here. We went and had dinner there too in a nice restaurant , it was nice to eat on the patio. On wednesday the kids had a mass (church service ) to introduce the start of church class for the coming year. I found out some exciting news yesterday, Aer lingus the irish airline are going to start direct service from Dublin to Minneapolis St Paul (MSP) in July 2019!! It will be so nice and not having a stopover for hours on a reconnecting flight is huge.
This week I am featuring Carmen a wonderful Lady from Kitchener Ontario . She is about an hour and a half southwest from Toronto . Kitchener is sandwiched between 3 of the great lakes, Huron , Erie and Ontario, easy driving distance to all 3. A lot of her summer posts feature the small towns that are on the lake shorelines and all the cute stores you find in a small town. I always look forward to “visiting” them through her posts.
Carmen is vegan and likes to take care of the earth. She chooses her clothing carefully and always makes sure it is made by employees who are treated and paid fairly. Her style is very much feminine which is a win win for Me to follow her! She looks amazing , and is kept active by being a dance teacher.

Good morning ladies , how is your September going so far? We are definitely experiencing cooler temps , it was 50F or 10c yesterday morning! We had a fun long weekend for labor day . We did fun family time at home for most of the day saturday , then in the evening went to a great outdoor waterpark with slides , wavepools , paddlepools and a lazy river! The kids had great fun and used up their energy. On Sunday we went to church in the morning , then went to a friends house for a barbecue in the evening , the kids again went swimming in their lovely pool . Monday was low key with last minute prep for SCHOOL! We made sure that everything was in order for the start of middle school for our daughter , 3rd grade and the start of kindergarten for our two older sons. The little guy is the only one left in daycare. They all had a great start to the school year .
This week I am featuring Mackenzie , a very sweet young Woman living in the San Jose area of California but originally an Ohio Girl! She is married to DJ for 3 years now and is going to graduate school for nursing. Following her for this past 2 years, I have seen how she is a very caring nurse who loves her patients! Her posts are so fun to read as she explores her suroundings , takes us to all the restaurants she visits with such yummy food, takes us on hikes in local parks , and takes us into her family life , introducing us to her Mom, Grandparents , siblings and friends. She adds fun little quotes to her posts which crack Me up! She also gives glory to God through her faith.

Hello Ladies , how are you today? I knew it was coming but still got a shock to put down SEPTEMBER in the title! Where has the summer gone. I know it is Autumn/fall already in the UK and Ireland and it is generally accept it is fall here once this weekend is over although officially the date is September 21. It is a holiday weekend here in the US , labor day. No work until tuesday! Tuesday is also the day the kids go back to school here. Our daughter will start 6th grade and into middle school, Our oldest son goes into 3rd grade and our liam starts school in kindergarten. He is excited for it , he had his last day at daycare on thursday, we are down to one in daycare now! Liam I feel will be one of those kids the teacher will know his name pretty soon, he loves to talk! I keep telling him he needs to listen to the teacher so we will see how it goes. We are going to a friends house today for a end of summer get together they have a pool too so there will be swimming for the kids , maybe a glass of wine for us adults?
The something new I have written in the title is to start featuring my blogging friends modelling their wonderful dresses that they have purchased. I have my first friend lined up for this week offer ( I could be asking you next!)
So this is Steph from her blog Picking the day , see here for wordpress link or here through her own external website link she is a wonderful young woman who I have been following for a while now.
