The Zoo!

We love the zoo. We really do. A couple of weekends ago we all went to the zoo and it was a blast! The weather was perfect. Bella is really into animals right now and loves making the animal sounds. Baby Zuri (the elephant) is getting bigger & not as much fun as last year. She is still cute though! It has been such a fun summer, I'm really sad that it's almost over. But on to my favorite season.. FALL!

Drinking out of the iconic lion fountain for the first time!

Toby Toby Toby..

That's ALL I ever hear from my mama. She looovvveeessss him so much. So when she won another meet & greet through her fan club (that she totally deserved after being in the fan club for 10 years!) we were totally excited for her. This time she had to meet him all alone but she was happy because she was the only one who got to be in the picture with him. :)

Above is the picture from when they got to meet him in 2008. Read that post here. She had just finished her cancer treatments & her hair was just starting to grow back. I'm so glad she got to meet him again now that she feels better. Yay mom!

365 to Greatness Project

Those who know me, know that I AM a positive person. I look for the bright side in things, always & everywhere. If something bad happens it only affects me for awhile and then I know that it will pass. I've always been this way. But in the last couple of years I have changed. I'm not as happy go lucky as I used to be. I let things worry me and I worry until I make myself sick. I had a rough couple of years. My life started in a downward spiral, from having a miscarriage, working & going to school full time, my dad passing away, my mom being diagnosed with cancer.. The rain was pouring and pouring hard. I think during those years, I changed.

Things started to turn around when I had Bella. I stressed so much during my pregnancy that something would go wrong and when it didn't I was SO grateful. I needed that. But I know that I'm not the same that I used to be and I miss that. Since I've been working from home I have really been trying to turn things around so when I saw this project called 365 To Greatness, I knew that I had to do it. All that you need to do, is try something new everyday for a year. And the beauty of it all is that you don't need to do something fancy every day. How about trying out that restaurant that you've always wanted to or taking your kids to that new park? I started a new tab along the top of my blog. I will post in this tab everyday with what I did that day.

I'm so excited about this and I hope some of you will join too!
