Good morning Ladies ! Welcome to a sunny Minnesota ,it has been in the high eighties f or arond 31c the last few days for highs! While I am glad to be away from winter it seems it gets too hot too fast for my Irish skin ! But we take what we get right? Last Saturday I worked concessions at my Daughters softball game as volunteer hours . It was fun doing food prep stocking drinks and bring it all to the front, I did not work the till which I was relieved about , another Lady did it and was so good at counting it all up ! On the field our team had mixed results won some lost some.
On Tuesday our two older boys finished school for the year 3rd grade and Kindergarten . Then Our Daughter finished 6th Grade on Thursday. They are all excited about summer vacation !
To go hand in hand with vacation we set up our above ground pool on Wednesday . Our neighbor came over and helped us and we got it filled by late Thursday. The kids went into the cold water yesterday (brrr!) but were fine after being there a while. The sun is helping to warm it up.
Today we are going to friends to celebrate their house warming, his 40th Birthday and to meet their new baby Daughter Lila for those that have not yet ( I have and she is gorgeous!) They are laying on a bouncy castle and other activities for the kids. Tomorrow we are going to celebrate our extended family summer birthdays . There are 11 people between June and August . ( I am one of them) It seems early to celebrate the August birthdays but for some reason we can’t get together then.

Good morning Ladies!! I was starting to key in May in the title and realized , oh no it is June now!! May went by so fast. The kids finish school on Tuesday for elementary and Thursday for Middle school. They are all ready for summer vacation.
We had a low key weekend for memorial day , staying home and having a fire at night in our pit. The smores were a hit with everyone! Memorial day rained all day so we were confined indoors.
Today we have a softball tournament in town that our Daughter is playing in. I have to volunteer time working in concessions! I have not done this before so we will see, I hope it goes good!!

Hello all , we went to Kansas City from March 22nd through March 26th during the kids Spring break . I incorporated part 1 into my dress of the week post here
We stayed at the beautiful Homewood suites by Hilton close to the Kansas speedway. It is in the area called Village west.
We found an authentic Kansas city Restaurant the first evening called Q39 in Overland Park. It did not dissapoint ! The kids went swimming in the hotel pool after returning from eating. On the morning of Sunday March 24th I found a local church to attend . Then after eating we went to Chicken n pickle in North Kansas City where we played whiffleball which is similar to tennis. We did our best but will need to take lessons! In the afternoon we went to union station
It is a beautiful old building , Look at the ceiling! Inside is science city a fun place for kids of all ages!
We didn’t participate in the life sized chess or checkers! We arrived back in the evening to Village west and went to a local restaurant. Then we took a stroll around legends outlet
It was more window shopping than shopping but it was still nice!
The pool got used again that night before bed and we were all tired and ready for sleep!
On Monday the 25th March after breakfast ( the hotel lays on a fabulous Breakfast!) we went to the money museum of the federal reserve bank of Kansas City. this was a fun visit and entry is free.
The money wall which is about 5 feet tall is $40 million dollars long I captured $20 million worth. When we were leaving we each got to take a shredded bag of money worth about $165! That is it for part 2 . I will conclude with part 3 soon, Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies !! If you are in the USA or the UK I hope you are enjoying a long weekend of relaxation and fun. It is the unofficial start of Summer and the temps are staying cool here. We had a lot of rain during the week which was good for growth. The flowers are starting to bloom nicely. Today is going to reach 71f or 21c with sun . Last night we had a fire in our new backyard pit and roasted marshmallows . The kids love it! We are planning to go to the zoo as the kids love animals. We don’t have any other definite plans, maybe we will invite friends over and hangout. We have a weekend free of softball. Then it starts off on Monday again with practice and midweek games before a tournament thru next weekend.
My Uncle Owen passed away on Monday last . He had gone through a lot of health issues during the past 5 years . His family were sad but happy he was free from suffering. I didn’t make it to the funeral which is one of the issues you have when moving to a different country. May he rest in the peace of God’s love and Mercy, amen.

Good morning Ladies and welcome to a wet and thundery Minnesota! We are due to have 3 or 4 days of rain coming up which will be good for growth. Our daughters softball tournament was cancelled this weekend due to the weather. It will be a time to spend indoors I think!!
Last weekend we celebrated Mothers day with Church first and a relaxing day with the kids and some little gifts. They bought some trays of pretty planting flowers that still have to be planted, oops ! Then we went to a restaurant that was on the bucket list for a while that we have wanted to visit since before the kids were born! It did not dissapoint and had a nice selection for all taste buds! I hope you had a nice day if you celebrated last Sunday also.

Good morning ladies , how is your weekend going. I want to start off by wishing all the Moms who follow me in the United States and Canada a happy Mothers day ! I know it is different in the U.K. and Ireland ( It is the 4th Sunday of Lent a tradition going way back celebrating Mary the mother of Jesus) So my Mom has already celebrated hers! All you Mom’s deserve a little pampering tomorrow.
Last weekend was taken up with softball and a tournament 20 miles away on Saturday and Sunday. Our Daughters team had mixed results but did enough to qualify for nationals coming up. It is 20 miles away in a different direction so no hotel stays, last year the 12u was in south Dakota! The Monday thru Friday was pretty routine . On Thursday our neighbor gave the two older boys a ride in his yellow convertible car! It actually is his Mom’s car that he borrowed, he listed his own car for sale and it sold in hours so he was without for a few days , and the boys were so happy to go in a sports car! Today is curbside clean up day where the city picks up unwanted household or garage items once a year. We start putting stuff out on Thursday for Saturday collection and then the people looking for scrap or just a good find circle around the neighborhoods in trucks and sometimes trailers attached looking for a piece of treasure. You know what they say One persons trash is another’s treasure!
I had so much fun with the customizable eshakti dresses last week I want to feature one again!! This week I have picked out the Georgette wrap large rose floral print dress with tie waist see here The model is wearing the short sleeve ready to buy dress below and the one I added sleeves to is the customizable one!
Have a beautiful weekend , I hope the sun shines for you, Terri xoxo.
Good morning Ladies and welcome to May! I am so excited , the flowers will be starting to bloom soon, right now the stems are at 3 inches . May started off with my Sisters wedding anniversary on May 1st (10 years) and her Birthday on May 2nd! What a great start to May for her and also it is a holiday on Monday in Ireland!
We had a nice quiet weekend gone by , we got outdoors which is good. It has taken longer than I wanted for Spring to get here. I got some sad news during the week, the Priest (pastor ) that baptized me all those years ago and also officiated as the celebrant at our wedding 15 years ago passed away. He was a lovely man and so positive always. May he rest in the peace of God’s love.
Today we have softball for our daughter , there are games at 11am , 3pm and 6pm! It is only 20 miles away which is good.
This week I am excited to bring eshakti clothing to you! ( I am not affiliated with this company in any way) I found them through my blogging friend Olya’s post.

Good morning one and all! We are creeping towards the end of April, it has gone so fast! We are seeing spring growth , the flower shoots are starting to peek up through the ground , the grass is growing and leaves are starting to appear on the trees, I love it!!
After going to church in the morning to celebrate the ressurection of Jesus , We hosted Easter dinner. There were 4 generations of 18 people and our neighbor a came over a little later to join the party. The Great Grandma is having breathing issues and has to now bring an oxygen machine but it was great seeing her. There was a fun egg hunt with clues to find and at the end the kids got a $10 gift card ! How was your Easter?

Good morning Ladies and Happy Easter weekend to you! Yesterday was the day Good Friday when Jesus was crucified to fulfill his earthly journey, he died to save us from our Sins. Tomorrow Easter Sunday Jesus will rise, the tomb will be empty.
Last weekend was fun, a friend Leah and her two boys came to visit from Fargo. Her husband stayed home to accomplish chores and knowing him have a few beers! She got here late Friday night and after getting the kids to bed was ready for a glass of wine and a chat. Saturday was a relaxing day early then in the afternoon went to a community center for swimming. It is only 15 miles from us but the first time we visited. It had two waterslides which were fun. Also a hot tub for the adults which was extremely hot in my opinion. They left Sunday morning for the trip home , the kids loved having the boys here . We usually go to their house in the summer so will look forward to that !
We are hosting Easter this year for the extended family . Looking forward to seeing everyone and the grass is starting to green and grow! Great for a egg hunt.

Good morning Ladies ! I hope your weekend is off to a nice start. Last weekend we spent time outside as it was really nice. We cleaned up our yard of kids toys that had scattered . Also we set up our trampoline for the kids which is a big hit. It is enclosed so they cannot fall off it. The school week started off good , kids went as normal until at midday Wednesday we had s**w again! It was forecast and it snowed so much that school was cancelled on Thursday. It kept falling on and off into Friday midday. We got over 8 inches total! A late storm that hopefully will be it for the year!!
We are entertaining this weekend . A friend from Fargo and her two boys aged 7 and 5 are here ( her husband stayed home to do projects!) until Sunday. They left Fargo at 5pm Friday and got here at 10pm. We will have a fun day , going to a waterpark (indoor of course!) and whatever else we get up to. They leave Sunday morning. Tomorrow is Palm Sunday where Jesus make s his way to Jerusalem on a Donkey and just days later is crucified to fulfill his mission on Earth.
