ABC & 123's Prize Picnic

Summer is almost here, so I am going to join the fun at ABC & 123's Prize Picnic. This is my first time joining something fun like this. I am relatively new to blogging and enjoying getting to know everyone.
I have been reading ABC & 123's since it began, and am in love with their great ideas. I have had the privilege of meeting both the Katie's and know what amazing women they are.

Here's a little bit about me. My husband Randal and I have been married for almost 6 years. We live in Michigan and love being so close to the gorgeous beaches and getting to enjoy all the seasons.

Randal works as a network engineer, and I get to stay home and raise our daughter. I feel so lucky and blessed everyday. Before I stayed at home, I did respite care for autistic twin boys, and was the activities director at a children's fitness/gymnastics center.

We have one daughter, Molly. She is 1 1/2 years old, and full of energy. She loves posing for pictures. This is one of my favorites from Christmas. I love watching her discover and learn something new everyday.

My blog is a little bit of everything that goes on in my life...

-Spotlight Sunday (people, places and things)
-Menu Monday (Muffin tin and weekly)
-Tip Tuesday (from cleaning to cloth diapering)
-Wordless Wednesday (great pictures)
-Toddler Time Thursday (activities and projects)
-Frugal Friday (money saving)
-Sew Something Saturday (great sewing projects)

This summer we are planning on camping, going on PICNICS, lots of swimming, and on Monday we are going to the Harry Potter exhibit is Chicago (notice my friend Sarah and me wearing our Gryffindor and Slytherin scarves).


  1. Yeah! Kim is coming to our picnic. I 've been hoping to see you here girl! I'm jealous of your Chicago trip next week. Sounds like fun! Take lots of pictures, I'd love to see them. Hopefully we will be able to get our kiddos to that exhibit sometime this summer...cause you know how they care about Harry Potter;)

  2. So great to meet you via the blog world!

  3. It's so nice to "meet" you! Our hubbies are in the same line of work, I'm so glad that it provides each of us the oppurtunity to stay home with the kiddos.

  4. It has been fun getting to know a bit about you. I would love to see the Harry Potter exhibit. I like that you have a schedule for your posts.

  5. Hi and nice to meet you. We love to camp too!! Can't wait for the kids' sports to end so we can start going. I'm off to check your sewing Saturday posts!! Your daughter is adorable!

  6. Coming over from ABC that you have everyday as a theme day on your blog. Doesn't naming something make it more fun? :)

  7. Hi Kim. It is so great to meet new people and learn the wonderful places they are from. That is one of the most exciting things for me, to know I am "talking" with people from all over. I enjoyed my visit and will definitely check back.

  8. Kim this is such a fun post. I even learned a little more about you - dancing for a week just didn't give us that chance. I need to get on it and have a picnic at my blog. :) I hope you have a GREAT summer!

  9. Thanks for joining in Kim! I can tell you and Katie are friends she has a love for alliteration blog post titles too:)

  10. The picture of your little girl made me smile! She is precious. Hope you have a great summer.

  11. Wish we had a Harry Potter exhibit here in Texas. I do plan on seeing it at the IMAX though. What could be better?

  12. Nice to meet you. How cool is being a SAHM.

    Have a nice weekend.
