Honest Juice

Honest Juice is the only brand that Ro will drink. I honestly love drinking this too. Ro loves every flavor except for grape. I’m not sure why, but maybe it reminds of him cough medicine or multivitamins. Anyway, Shoprite always has this on sale, 4 for $9.99, and each time we go, we stock up. Not every store has the flavors we want, so when we get a chance, we stick to whatever is available. How did we find out about this?

Winter

I love winter when it snows! Fresh snowfall! I love the picture that I took above! I stopped in the middle of the road because there were no cars following us and decided to take a quick shot. I had to drive the boys to the pediatrician’s office yesterday afternoon since Ry needed his flu shot. On the way there, we usually take the 10 minute drive through the woods where people can go sledding, hiking, or take their children to the park. I took my time yesterday, we left the house early, and the boys were asleep in the car. I just wanted to take in the scenery and enjoy the beauty of nature. It was breathtaking, and I felt a sense of peace.

If I didn’t have the boys with me, I would be outside the car just taking pictures.

What do you like/love about winter? What do you think about when you look at the picture above?

Friendships

When I saw the post above from my newsfeed, I reflected upon the friendships I’ve had over the years and decided that it is time for a new me.  I am the kind of person who loves to keep in touch with my friends. Now I know everyone is in different stages of their life and it is not an excuse for you to return calls, text messages, or emails. I understand we all have a busy life, but I don’t appreciate the effort that I put into it. I do not tolerate that kind of friendship. I’ve always believed that friendship is a two-way street.

Knitting

I cannot believe that it has been a year since I started knitting. I took the time to teach myself how to with the help of youtube. It all started when my brother who is a Nurse Manager and needed an idea for presents for his employee. I decided to make it a hobby because it was another way for me to destress myself from Ro, my pregnancy, and life itself. At that time, we were expecting our second son, Ry.  Anyways, brother needed help for sure, so I volunteered myself to help him knit around 42 navy beanies, UGH! I got so bored staring at navy blue that I ventured off to another project! HAHA! I bought a lot of navy color yarns. I ended up making three different designs and decided that I can get it done before Christmas. HAHA! Guess what?
