Today is Nee's last day of 7th grade. Can't believe she will be in high school after next year. :) Oh my goodness...I'm not ready for her high school graduation to come all too soon! Feeling very nostalgic today. Look at that cute girl in those pics. Left was the first day of 7th grade and the right pic is today, her last day of 7th grade. Cutie pie!! :)
Y'all please say a prayer for these kiddos today. Goodbyes are difficult for those who are moving away or seeing their friends move away. Those going to 9th grade next year will be in a new school so that brings big changes. And some at the end of this school year are finding some friendships are in an awkward place. I would never wish to go back to this age for anything. :)
Now I'm off to the store to stock on fun yummies....er, junk food...for tomorrow's end of school year par-tay! Many high-pitched preteen girlies all in one place, while hyped up on sugar and greasy pizza. Eek! :) Fingers crossed that our weather holds out and we can get them to the water park on Saturday to get it out of their system. HeeHee!
Have you discovered the heaven that is Influenster? If not, go there! NOW!! :)
Sharing your product reviews, answering questions, and recommending to your friends and family is what it's all about. In return, you qualify to receive free fun products to taste, smell, touch, and see. Can't beat it, right?
I was excited to receive another fun box yesterday.
Yay for Palmolive Fresh Infusions! I had been wanting to try this ever since I started seeing commercials for it. I have to be careful about the products we use here in the Bowden household due to Neeley's skins sensitivities. I was hoping something like this would be a product that would be okay to use.
Y'all, you HAVE to go get you some of this stuff. It cleans so well, smells great, and is great for not causing any further damage to the skin.
Come back here and let me know what you think if you try it! :)
I cannot believe Thanksgiving is over and tomorrow is December. What in the world!?!
We are back home and things are even more hectic than our "normal" schedule usually allows. Neeley and I were involved in a bit of a fender-bender on our way back home from Arkansas.
Ok, it was more than a fender-bender.
Since I don't have pics of the actual scene, let me paint the picture for you.
Picture my Equinox on 40 W followed by a t-i-n-y Chevy Extreme pickup with a bed full of dead deer and hauling a 4-wheeler on a trailer.
Have that in your head?
Ok, now picture the entire front half of that tiny lil pickup crammed underneath my Equinox and my Equinox jacked up at a 45 degree angle.
Will spare you the whole story, but yep, it did happen, and we lived to tell about it. Neeley, Anna Banana, and I walked away with sore necks and backs but now we're in the process of scheduling the cosmetic surgery for Ellie the Equinox.
Whew! Is it already time for Thanksgiving? Wait...what? October is over? And August and September, too? I feel sooooooooooooo behind on everything now that I am back in school full time. Sound familiar? I felt that way when I worked full time too. :)
Neeley's schedule has been full of fundraising fun as she prepares for her upcoming conferences. We spent several hours at Purple Swirl on Friday evening.
And then enjoyed our time last night at Orange Leaf. We certainly love our froyo!!! :)
These fundraisers were her first actual on-site events but she is working with some other businesses to hopefully earn some more funding to register for the conferences. Anyone have any odd jobs for her to do? :)
Soooooooooooo proud of that girls' entrepreneurial efforts! She has scheduled all of the fundraiser fun all on her own, emailing and calling businesses, and mailing letters. Please keep your fingers crossed for this girly girl to attend them to further her interest in medicine and science.
Here's to more goofy fun. Or, probably we were a bit delirious by this time after 5 hours at Orange Leaf! :)
Neeley has been invited to attend the 2013 LeadAmerica Medicine & Science Conference as well as the National Young Leaders State Conference. In order to attend, Neeley needs to raise upwards of $5,000. Will you please consider a small donation to help with travel expenses?
