There you have it, the pins that brought a bit of sunshine to my week.  How about you? Have you pinned something worth sharing?

Abrazos, Sapphire

Hello Happy Monday

Morning Friends!  How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was pretty good.  I was able to check off  plenty of items on my Never-Ending-To-Do List.

I hope you’re ready for new week.  I surely am.  So let’s link up to the Lovely Lisa & say some HELLOs.

Hello Earth Day!  Celebrating Mother Nature is a good thing.  Over the weekend, the Pollitos and I made it a point to pick up trash anywhere we saw it.  I’m thinking we’re gonna work on a bottled water craft today.

Hello Blooming Buds.  The trees are finally blooming. YAY!!  Can’t wait to see green everywhere in place of grey and brown.

Hello Spring Dresses.  I swapped out my closet over the weekend. Tucked away all the chunky sweaters and pulled out my pretty flowy Spring dresses.  I’m looking forward in wearing them.  Now it’s just time to go sandal shopping.  Love that thought!

pollitos

Hello Cheesy Faces.  These two funny critters made this mama laugh hysterically yesterday with their renditions of silly faces.  I was only able to catch this one, since I was driving.  Laughing is not an easy emotion to pull off while driving, I tell ya.

Hello Achy Muscles.  I stumbled upon Cassie Ho & the Awesomeness that is Blogilates. And I’m in serious lust with her rockin’ fitness videos. My body NOT SO much! Between my abs, glutes, obliques & arms, I don’t know which ones ache more.  They’ll just have to get over it.  I have a bikini to wear come Summer.  Determined!

Hello Weekend! Can you get here a bit quicker? Like PUH-LEEZ!  My bestie is coming down for a visit.  The kids & I can’t wait to see her & my nephew.  We’re all in need of some quality time.

Seems like it’s gonna be a mellow week.  I do have some fun things in store for you:  a yummy recipe; a bit about clean eating & The Great Pinterest Affair is back.  Make sure to check in.  Have a Spectacular week Amigos!

Can you believe it’s the first week of September already? Like really, where did the summer go?  These days are flying like crazy.  Next we’ll be celebrating Christmas and a New Year.  I’m really trying to slow things down around here, enjoying all of the little moments with the kids and hubs.

Another Friday means another showcase of The Great Pinterest Affair.

The Great Pinterest Affair

Welcome to the very, very, very late edition of…

I started this fun feature a few weeks ago, but have gotten side tracked with the craziness that is life.  But it’s now time to get back to it.

So what’s The Great Pinterest Affair all about?

It’s a Friday feature, where I’ll share with you my favorite pins.  And if I’ve gotten a chance to re-create the pin, I’ll share that too.

That about covers it.  Have you pinned anything worth sharing as of late?

The Great Pinterest Affair

I have a secret to share and I’m totally hoping I can trust you.  Come closer so I can clue you in.  A little closer.

Ready?  Ok here it is….

I’m totally HEAD-OVER-HEELS in LOVE with Pinterest!  Yes, you read right.  I absolutely adore it.

I can’t seem to get enough.  It really is my vice.  At this point in time I have 54 boards and over 1900 pins.  Crazy, I know.  I can get lost for hours, just perusing and pinning away.  The hubs recently told me that he’s convinced I’m having an affair with the site.  I countered with, “My obsession is equivalent to yours with the Yankees, so we’re even.”  I may have even gone so far as to sticking out my tongue and saying “Na-na-na-na.”  Real mature! tee hee

Anyhoo, he got me thinking.  Since I love to share and have this great lil space in the blogging world; why not share with my sweet readers all the goodies I’ve pinned.  Original thought? Not so much. But fun nevertheless.

Sooooo, I’d like to welcome you to

where every Friday, I’ll share with you my favorite pins.  And if I’ve gotten a chance to re-create the pin, I’ll share that too.

And without further ado,

Have a FAB-U-LOUS weekend Friends!

Hello Monday

How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was extremely busy.  Highlights were Family Fun Day at Lil’ Giant’s school, working on our first floor remodel, volunteering for the Run for the Red Marathon and some light reading.

Now it’s time to tackle another week.  Are you ready? I’m a bit worn for the wear, but determined to make it a stupendous week.

So. Let’s. Get. It. In!

Hello Monday. Excuse moí. Hello Soggy Monday. Third one in a row.

Hello Third Trimester! I can’t believe how quickly this pregnancy is going. I’m 27 weeks and 3 days along. And Baby “R” is the size of a head of cauliflower. However, knowing my luck, he’s more along the size of small watermelon.  I have BIG babies and BIG bellies. The Lil’ Giant was 8lbs 10ozs and Gordita was a WHOPPING 9lbs 14ozs. I tell you, I’m petrified to think how big this guy is going to be. Alright, time to change the subject before I faint.

Hello Mr. Grey and his Fifty Shades. I finally got my hands on the Trilogy this weekend and jumped in. Boy, now I get why everyone is talking about this book. I couldn’t put it down. I’m already onto book 2 & I tell you if I didn’t have responsibilities I would just sit the day away reading. With books like this, I could really put a dent into my Book Challenge.

Hello to my very First Guest Post EVER. I’ve written a post for Terri at A Creative Princess. Hop on over there tomorrow and you’ll see. I’m one excited chica! I’m pushing my limits and trying to branch out into, this crazy blogging world.

Hello Dora the Explorer LIVE. I’m surprising Gordita this Saturday to go see the show. I can’t wait to see the expression on her face. She absolutely adores Dora. She could watch her all day, every day. So this should be a lot of fun.

Hello to the small outdoor rug, I picked up yesterday. I have plans for you.

Hello again to the long list of “To-Do’s” for our first floor re-do. Lots of good-lookin’ progress and lots to share with you fine folks.

Those are all the Hellos, I have for now. So off you go. Have a FAB-U-LOUS week!

Linking up to Miss Lisa.
