Time for a Blog Party!!!

Welcome to my blog!! This is the second time I join the Ultimate Blog Party.  I loved being part of it last year, so I’m back for more.
I’m so happy you stopped by my little crazy place full of family stories, plans, thoughts and lots of talk about random products and topics.  I am an obsessed Disney fanatic, but I mostly talk about my life with my hubby and kids.  I started this blog in January of 2011, as something to do since I was unemployed.  It kept my mind busy and I thought would help my writing skills.  After 2 years – I’m still here.  I don’t post as much as I’d like but I really try to get a post at least once a week.
I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 17 years – this June will be 18!  We’ve had great times and bad times, but it’s just brought us closer.  We have 2 wonderful, pain in the butt children who really keep us going.  Our schedules, no, our LIVES revolve around them…..LOL!  We plan vacations and short car trips or getaways around their schedule.  My son is 14 and plays both high school and travel baseball.  He’s been playing since he was 4 and loves it!  My daughter is 7, but equally as busy since she takes dance, gymnastics and ice skating.  Actually, she finished gymnastics for the year – we decided she’s too busy with dance right now so gymnastics may start up again in September.  Ice skating is also coming to an end for a while.  We are concentrating on dance this Spring since there is a lot going on, which I will be writing about in the coming weeks.
So this is pretty much it – I live to enjoy my family and life and I really try to enjoy everyday of my life.  Life can be difficult and we all encounter rough patches, but you need to always look for the light at the end of the tunnel and try to make every day great!! 
Things will always get better-now LET'S PARTY!!!
