last night we had a huge sleepover with my boy's friends, it was so much fun. I woke up a little tired but it was all worth it when those sweet little boy faces woke up to some treats. (I know Leprechaun poop sounds disgusting, but I figured with boys it would go over well and it did). The "poop" consisted of Lucky Charms cereal, gummy bears, green candies I can't remember the name of and a few gold coins and a on the side a bottle of bubbles. I love that my boys are still little and I can have fun with them and just be in their joyous innocent presence sometimes. Last night my sweet wonderful husband grabbed my hand and hugged me tight and told me how lucky he and my boys are that I am his wife and their mother but I had to answer back that I'm the lucky and blessed one. Happy St. Patty's Day!

Earlier this week I was invited by health coach Melanie Banayat to join her on a local radio program and promote women's health and wellness. It was a great experience the dj was absolutely phenonmenal and made us feel right and home. I was able to share a little bit about how Zumba has changed my life and what it's done for me physically and emotionally that was really cool. I just feel so blessed to have found something that has set me free from so many strongholds and I love sharing it with others. Highlight the Youtube link and right click and open link to see my little Zumba moment.

Today I was blessed to attend a fundraising event for a co worker of mine. She is a fantastic instructor and personal trainer. Unfortunately she is in dire need of a new kidney she has kidney failure and is very sick. Today the gym I work for had a purse and scarf raffle. I had never heard of such a thing before little did I know that I was in for a big treat today. We purchased raffle tickets and put them in the purse we liked and Joan picked a ticket, I won every purse I really wanted. How cool! There was a ton of food, we had over 150 purses donated and tons and tons of beautiful scarves we also landed up with some beautiful handmade jewelry being donated. People can be so generous, with their time, talents and purses I found out today. Joan is such an amazing God loving woman who has a shoulder for anyone, an ear for any problem, and arms for those days when you just need a hug. Today we were able to help her and she was speechless and so very grateful. At the end of the day we raised $3,000 for her. Three people also generously offered to be tested to see if they were a match so they could possibly donate a kidney to Joan. I'm just happy I was able to be apart of such a wonderful and special day and also because I get to add two new purses to my growing collection.

All three of our boys are dramatically different. It's kind of amazing to see, I treat them all relatively the same we all live in the same house, eat all the same food, watch more or less the same thing hear the same music but beautifully we are all very very different. Nicolas is our straight A athlete, Isaac is our comedian and Nathan is our artsy picasso child. His artwork has been chosen each and every time the school does an art show. He has had artwork exhibited in several locations around town and the local college asks for his work. This was his latest creation a wire lizard, the picture does it absolutely no justice it was very creative and really cool. I should have labeled this post brag on Nathan, and I mean that in the most humble way. I love to see how each of my children use their God given talents, we are all so blessed and each of us has one. Sometimes as adults I think we tend to forget or wonder what our talent is or at least I do/did. I love how children are so free and expressive and creative and I get to see each day their talents, their gifts, their growing personality, their new abilities and each day I love a little more that I get to be their mom and that is my gift. Happy Happy Thursday, I hope you all have a wonderful day!
