I'll never be a good writer because of my Mamaw.

I'm a shit writer. I don't use correct grammar all the time or finish my sentences. I write like I speak. I obliterate the English language and it's not because my English teacher didn't teach me the proper way because she did. I blame my Mamaw {teasing of course} and I'll tell you why.

Mamaw always says, “Plain talk is easily understood.”

She's right in a lot of situations. Don't beat around the bush or sugar coat it, just say it out loud in plain english. Plain talk is easy to understand.

The other morning I was awake early in bed and I could hear the birds out my window making a loud commotion. I pulled out my Sudoku book from the nightstand to write it down and try to make it poetic. {Laughing}

I hear the mourning Dove before dawn
Her far off cry resonates through my body
She brings back memories of long lost loves
Perhaps she mourns her lost loves too

Cheesy I know. I just wanted to play with the words and write it better.

I hear the mourning Dove before dawn from my warm slumber.
Drowsy from sleep her sorrowful cry clings to my soul.
She brings back memories of long forgotten loves.
Perhaps she mourns her lost loves too.

Eh...it will do.

Then I remembered what my Mamaw always says.

So I looked over the words and knew I could make it better.

My Son is Now an Eagle Scout {so proud}

Recently we attended Gentle Ben's Eagle Scout ceremony.

It was very touching seeing these young men in their uniforms that night all excited and proud of their accomplishments.   Sashes with all sorts of earned badges.  

When I was invited to stand by Ben I wasn't sure I'd be able to contain myself.  It was emotional seeing my baby grown into an amazing young man.  I've had a hard time with seeing him grow, just wait until I post about his high school graduation that was last weekend.  He may have been my second child but he will always be my baby.

Who is now an Eagle Scout.

I had the pleasure of pinning his Eagle Scout Pin on his uniform...the second time...we got it wrong the first time.  Gotta have a sense of humor.

Harmless Harvest Coconut Water
HYDRATION STATION: WHICH COCONUT WATER SHOULD I REACH FOR THIS SUMMER?

Harmless Harvest Coconut WaterWith temperatures rising, many of us are spending time outside with our kids—and we have to be mindful about staying hydrated in a healthy way.

Many of the flavorful drinks children ask for contain preservatives and additives that are produced in a factory and can be harmful. But what if we can provide the same (or better) hydration from something natural, something organic that is packed with loads of nutrients?

That's when I looked into natural sports drink alternatives to help my children and me stay hydrated during these hot summer days. Coconut water is an all-natural beverage which is loaded with super-food powers, but with the vast array of options on the market, it was time I explored how to identify truly great coconut water.

I recently partnered with Harmless Harvest, the first ever Fair-For-Life certified coconut water, to share insights on how to distinguish a premium coconut water from the rest. Here's why I think Harmless Harvest reigns supreme:

*  It maintains its unique, 'straight from the coconut' flavor thanks to its multi-step micro-filtration process

*  Has a longer shelf life without extra additives or preservatives

*  Is a hydrating all-natural alternative to sports drinks and juices

*  Contains vital nutrients that occur naturally in Harmless Harvest's specific young, green coconuts

Can you tell me what this is? {What are things I find while cleaning the kid's room?}

Michelle Lee at The Adventures of Supermom

I know what it is but I wonder if you know what it is.  I'll give you one clue.

It was found in the girl's bedroom when I was helping them clean it last week.

Yeah, that's all I'll help with.

Think about it and make a few guesses and if you really want to know what "it" is then click continue reading.
