Monday musings...

Posted by Picasa
Last week was kind of weird here in my house. My oldest
left for a trip to Europe and my youngest was doing his
Scuba diving certification. We had a lot of long trips to get
him up to the diving school and that involved late nights
coming home. This weekend was 2 really early mornings
to get him up to a lake to do the open water dives for 7am,
luckily my husband is OK with doing this and letting me
sleep in. Although I was really nervous and got up about
5:45am Saturday to see them off. So now at the grand age
of 14 he is now Scuba Certified, yay!! The reason for this
is that in a couple of weeks he is going on a trip to
New Zealand & Australia and will now have the chance
to scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef, how cool is that !

With all the stuff going on last week I completely forgot
that it was my 1 year anniversary of starting my blog,
or do they call that a blogiversary nowadays ? I was
encouraged to start a blog by a friend of mine and even
though I do not update it on a daily basis I have enjoyed
posting and showing my few readers a little glimpse into
my life. I have a little something I would like to do as a
giveaway to one of my commenters, so if you leave me a
comment between now and Friday I will pull a name
to win this.

In case you are wondering what it is, it is a do-it-yourself
bracelet kit by Creative Imaginations.
A couple of years ago I was at an event in Nashville called
Scrap etc., they had a few of these for sale and I bought
a couple to give as gifts. Well as I was doing more
re-organizing I came across this one and thought it was
just perfect to give away.

How cool for your son that he is certified for scuba diving! My daughter did the same thing when she was about 14 - with her dad so they could dive down in Mexico. She hasn't been since, but it's cool that she can say she's certified.

PS: Fun giveaway!!! And congrats on your blogiversary! :o)

Scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, how cool for a teenager. Something he'll remember forever. Happy Blogversary, or however we say that, lol! And for the opportunity to win something cool!

Wow! Has it been a year already??? Incredible!

Your son can always say that he's scuba diver & it can be a "chick magnet". LOL

Happy Blogaversary---and many more! :)
