Today would have been Dad’s 84th birthday. He’s not here to celebrate with us, so I thought today would be a good time to reflect on the last 3 months.
40 Days, 40 Things
Each year for Lent, people give up a variety of things: Facebook, fast food, soda, TV.
Lent is a time for reflection and sacrifice.
One thing that we can give up is stuff. We have a lot of it. We have stuff we don’t need. We have stuff we don’t use. We have stuff we don’t even know we have.
For Lent, I would like to set aside 1 item a day to donate. I’m really hoping the kids will get on board because they have tons of stuff, too.

This is probably one of my favorite days when it comes to being a Planner Babe. I love embellishing my planner with stickers, whether it’s an icon sticker to represent something I’m doing that day or a pop of color to add some whimsy.
It was such a fantastic day with family and friends celebrated the 4th of July.
The last several years, we’ve been very fortunate to have friends at Imagine Real Estate give us tickets to this wonderful celebration. We ventured out for a TinCaps game followed by the Fort Wayne fireworks.

It’s always a fun event that the kids really look forward to. They have some of their favorite foods, a splash pad, and fireworks! There’s a baseball game, too, if you like that sort of thing.
The TinCaps won. It ended up being 4-0. Even though it was a pretty sad showing for the Captains, I still love seeing my team win.
I totally skipped the bun for my burger. The bread would have wasted valuable stomach space. I needed the room for wings that’d be served in the 4th inning and apple crisp that’d be served in the 7th. Needless to say, no one went home hungry last night. There was plenty of food, soda, and a cash bar. Continue reading
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
