Welcome to the 2014 Summer Blog Tour! Fellow Blogger, Lena of Uncreative Mommy added me to the tour and I am excited to pause from the hustle and bustle to get to know some new bloggers and get reacquainted with older ones.
As part of the tour, the participants are to answer a few questions and then introduce you to new bloggers in their circle. So let’s get started!
What am I working on?

For the most part,
You are busy. I know. It’s the story of most of our lives. Working to provide for our families. Trying to make ends meet and acquiring all of that stuff we think is a necessity. Let’s pause a moment and reflect on what we are giving up in the process: the precious memories we fail to create with our children.
Fellow blogger, Brandi of Mama Knows It All recently shared her “ah-ha” moment of being there for her daughter.
Last week I had the opportunity to attend BlogHer 2014 in San Jose, California as a volunteer. It was definitely an experience! I had a chance to connect with and finally meet face-to-face bloggers I have followed for years and have tons of respect for.
Here’s a snippet from the BlogHer website that gives a great overview of what the community is and the impact that it has on women bloggers:
Founded in 2005 by Lisa Stone,
There are some lessons that are not fun to learn the hard way. How to get kicked out of a casino and threatened with being banned is one of them. On a Girls’ Trip with my Aunts and Cousins, I found myself on the naughty list by doing something that comes normally to most of us in today’s society. Picture it – Diva time, lots of laughter and wine (gotta have the wine!), we’ve each picked out our favorite slot machine and are competing to see who is going to take home the largest jackpot.
I received a free copy of Yefon: The Red Necklace by Sahndra Fon Dufe to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours. No other financial compensation was received and, as always, all opinions shared are 100% mine.
A powerful, emotional tale of ambition and courage by Cameroonian-born Sahndra Fon Dufe, the Common Wealth of Nations recognized author of ‘Dear momma’. (2004)
Yefon: The RedNecklace (YRN) is the first book of the YEFON trilogy series.
Budgeting and savings are definitely not dirty words around these parts! I try to cut and save as much as possible around these parts as my family works on eliminating our debt and building our savings plan. One area I focus on the most is our grocery budget – my family has a very healthy appetite. I’ve heard that growing boys can do some damage but they didn’t warn me about a growing two-year-old diva!
