Thankful Thursday (on Friday)

It's been a good week.  My stepmom  came into town for my son's birthday.  So, we've been visiting this week.   The week has been kind of different because we haven't been able to make it to any of our three soccer practices this week.  We let my son skip practice on his birthday so that we could go to a birthday dinner with my in-laws and my stepmom.  Then, soccer practice was canceled on Wednesday because a lot of the kids had a band concert.  And last night soccer practice was canceled because of the rain.

I take my stepmom back to the airport tomorrow between soccer games.  Then on Sunday my grandma and grandpa and aunt and uncle will be coming to visit.  (My mom's parents and brother and sister)  We hit the out of town family jackpot this week!

Next week, of course, I'll be going back to work for a couple days.  Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be able to keep working over the Summer.  I just don't make enough to pay a babysitter.  Hopefully I'll be able to do it again in the Fall or find something new.  I've been thinking about becoming a Lemongrass Spa Independent Consultant.  I love that they have some organic makeup and all of their products are 97 - 100% natural. 

We're about to go into a crazy four weeks~~well, my hubby is.  This is the month that he teaches the deck-building classes on Saturdays.  That means he'll miss most of the soccer games this year and he'll be really tired.  It's nice to have the extra money, though.  Hopefully once he starts his own business he won't have to teach on nights/weekends anymore.  He just got his license for his business yesterday, so things are going forward!

These are the things I'm thankful for this week:

  1. Time spent with out of town family.
  2. Twelve wonderful years with my son.  
  3. My son was honored this week (and month) at school for being "Pride" of NRMS.  He was chosen by his teachers to receive the honor
  4. Pretty tulips.
  5. My hubby's business license going through.
  6. I finally made my decision about going home this Summer and bought the plane tickets for me and the kids.  One less thing for me to have to make a decision about!!  Decision made.
Which things are you thankful for this week?

Wordless Wednesday | More Tulips

Happy Wordless Wednesday! I hope that wherever you are, you get to enjoy a little beauty today, whether it's a sunny sky, a flower, a rainbow, a beach. . . . . I'm so happy my tulips bloomed this year! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!


Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Inexpensive, Sexy & Stylish Coverage with NEOSAN Swimsuit Cover-Ups

Summer is coming here in the northern hemisphere. . . . . slowly, but surely.  We're back to being on the cool side again!  I'm not even kidding. . . . it was 78 degrees two days ago and now it's back in the 30's and 40's.  At least the sun is out!   With the warmer weather that WILL be coming soon, comes bathing suit season!!!  We get passes to our water park here.  We manage to make it to the beach a couple times, too.

I'm a modest person by nature.  I like to cover myself when possible.  (You have no idea what it's taking for me to post the picture of myself in this bathing suit coverup.)  I'm the mom with the long sleeve sun shirt and the skirted swimsuit at the waterpark.  When I heard that swim leggings were going to possibly be a thing, I was ecstatic!  You mean I can cover my WHOLE body?

That's why I love when I can find a bathing suit coverup that works with skirted bathing suits.  It's hard to get a pair of shorts on over a skirted bathing suit~~ just sayin'!

**I received this bathing suit coverup highly discounted in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions are 100% mine.**

This NEOSAN bathing suit coverup is roomy and airy and covers everything.  It is a little short if you're only wearing a bathing suit underneath, but it still covers. I'm 5'5" and the front edge goes to about fingertip level when my hands are down.  It goes to about the back of my knees in back.

The cover I bought is sheer.  NEOSAN has several styles though.  They have some coverups that are more like dresses, too.  They are all very cute.  The price is great, too.  I believe the regular price on the one I got is $12.99.   For that price range, sometimes there's no telling what quality you get.  The stitching on the bathing suit coverup I received is done really well, though.

  The seaming around the neck is stitched perfectly straight with absolutely no fraying or missing stitches.  The inside seams are serged.  The one I received is 100% polyester.  I wonder if it will feel hot in the Summertime because of the polyester, but I have high hopes that it won't because it is so airy and comfortable.

The style I received is very wide.  You can see in the video below.
Because of the width and the light weight fabric, it feels like you're wearing nothing.  This particular swimsuit coverup, although it covers what it needs to cover, is very stylish and somewhat sexy.

 It is sheer, so you can see the bathing suit a little bit underneath.  It would be cute over a tanktop and shorts or jeans, as well.
