I love my freedom. I love my America.

S'mores anyone?

Hello bloggers...it's me, Tara

Ok, so I think I'm taking this "vacation from my blog" a little too far. I can't believe I've been home from vacation for almost a week and haven't taken the time to blog yet.

I have so much to write about, it's just finding the time to sit down and do it. Maybe this weekend I will just take an hour or so out of my day and do it. I'd love to do it now; however, I use 2 different computers and all my pictures are on the other computer...of course! I love to use pictures when I blog; it gives a good visual for what I'm blogging about.

On a side note, I realize I never wrote about Olivia's birthday party last MONTH! Oh someday, I'll get caught up.

I hope you're all enjoying the spring temperatures and sunshine (for the most part). I love this time of year!

Until I blog again....take care!

Can you say vacation?

This week is Olivia's spring break from school. I am so excited to be taking the week off with her. It's been a long time since I've had a real vacation.

Monday and Tuesday will be "staycation" days. We'll leave for the St Louis area on Wednesday. We're going to visit my cousin and her family. Although my cousin and I keep in touch, thanks to Facebook, we haven't seen each other in over 9 years. I can't wait to see her and to just simply get away for a few days.

Have you had a vacation lately? If so, did you do anything? Or did you just enjoy the time at home? No matter what, when or how, I hope it was enjoyable.

Due to the fact I'll be gone soon, I will be taking a brief break from the blog world. I'll be back in touch soon, though.

Until then......

Easter Weekend

Happy Easter to my fellow bloggers.

We colored eggs today. Olivia said she's not too old to color eggs, but she is too old to have her picture taken while doing it (haha). I was able to get pictures before and after the eggs were colored. I think they turned out really nice. Tom and I joined in the fun too!


Tomorrow we'll head to my mom's house to celebrate the holiday. I can't wait to see what she's got planned for dinner. Yummy! No matter what age we kids are, my mom still does Easter baskets/bags for us...and we have to find them. Yes, for all of us, she still hides the goodies.

I hope you have a peaceful weekend.
