Happy Holidays!

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile again. I’m really failing at this whole blogging thing right now! Please don’t kill me anyone 😦 I can say though that I had a fantastic holiday season. It’s always sad when it has to come to an end, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with my family and friends! I’m so grateful to have all of the people in my life still. It truly is a blessing and one that gets taken for granite. I just hope that I can continue into the New Year healthy, happy, and energized to keep up all the beautiful things I have.

I would also like to add thank you to all of my blogging friends for helping me through all of my adversity this year, and for the advice that you gave me. I’m amazed at how people reach out to me being so kind J

Enjoy! Some of my travels!

My First Golfing Experience

I was asked by a coworker to go golfing this past weekend. At first I was very hesitant to say yes, as I have never been golfing before. I had only heard about how hard it can be! Despite this feeling, I thought this was something I just couldn’t pass up so I took her up on the offer and went. I had a blast at the course, which I was not expecting! Yes, I stunk at it, but it was loads of fun and now I know how much fun it can be! I wish it wasn’t already getting so cold or else I probably would try to go more often. However, I think I’ll hold off until next spring!

I’ll stick with my fitness plan, and marathon training. Though now I know to go the next time someone is looking. It is as hard as they say it is, but with a few more outings I think I’ll be able to hold my own! And the course was beautiful! Take a look at the few photos I remembered to snap. Don’t forget that you don’t have to go to a fancy golf course. For only a few dollars you can have fun on the course, and enjoy the outdoors on a beautiful afternoon.

You’re Cordially Invited

Isn’t that just the best feeling in the world when you get a letter in the mail from a long time girlfriend and its informing you that she’s getting married! I just get ecstatic about it. Knowing you get to take part in a wedding is always an awesome feeling. I personally don’t just enjoy the fun that it brings, but the true reason for it, love… Yes, I know I’m a single mother, but love is something so adorable, and cute. It needs to be cherished with the utmost respect. I think I’m going to have to watch the notebook tonight after seeing this (you can’t tell me that is a bad movie, Ryan Gosling is in it!).

I also get to show off my prize possession William! He always looks adorable when he gets dressed up in a suit. My man of armor I call him. Ah, I just thought I should share with others the news!

The only thing I need to think of now is how to plan for this occasion. This is when budgeting becomes key! I know with my fantastic skills however, that I can do this! A wedding weekend is no light expense, but if you stay ahead and know early then anyone can do it!

Tootles!

Trivia Night

This week I went to a Trivia night with William at a local restaurant and WOW was it fun! He loved it (regardless that he didn’t know a lot of the questions!) He is starting to become so smart (and always was). I never imagined he would get so smart through the years of growing up. It was also fun for me to mingle with the girls that I invited and enjoy some drinks as well!

Another great thing to remember about trivia nights at bars and local eateries is that a lot of them have specials on those nights. I was able to get a flatbread, and a drink for $6 dollars! I think that’s a steal at a sit down restaurant!

Always keep this in mind when looking at where you want to grab a bite. It not only is saving you some bucks, but also is fun for everyone!
