Came across this article today and was amazed that random drug testing is an option in local schools. Is this a common practice that I am just unaware of? Without the threat of sounding like my grandparents, I can't recall this happening in my day!
As a parent how do you feel about schools having the option of randomly drug testing your children? Should they have your permission? Feel free to share your comments!
Came across this article on Yahoo! listing the best playgrounds across the country and it made me think of the playgrounds around our area. Do you have a favorite to take the kids to? We have had the perfect weather the past couple of weeks to take advantage of the many great parks we have here in the Region. Kinda scary that it is still technically winter!
Growing up I can remember how cool Penny Park was once it got its new zipline! We would beg our moms to let us ride our bikes to the park! We would spend hours playing “don't touch the lava”, come back all dirty, and do it all over again the next day! What was your favorite? ( I could go for a ride on a nice tire swing!)
Let's keep our fingers crossed this nice weather sticks around for Spring!
Do you have your green outfit lined up and ready to go for this weekend? How bout the Corned Beef and Cabbage? Gotta say as I get older the thought of green beer gets less and less appealing! One event I'd like to check out this year is the Crown Point parade, I'm such a sucker for floats!
Instead of taking a look at Irish traditions or fun facts, I thought we'd take a look at HOT Irish men! How does that sound? Click here for a full list with pictures! I'd like to get my hands on bad boy Jonathan Rhys Meyers! Too be fair here's a list of HOT Irish Actresses too! Enjoy!
Stay safe this weekend!
This nice weather is tricking my body into thinking summer has arrived and we haven't officially got outta winter yet! How are you enjoying the warmer weather? I've started walking with the dogs after work with my best friend to sneak in some exercise! Only problem, today I feel so sore! (Tells you how outta shape I am!)
We've been mostly hitting the trail that runs around Wolf Lake, but I thought I could ask for your help. What are some of your favorite dog friendly trails? Do you have a favorite park to take your four-legged buddy? With the weather heading in the right direction, I'd like the chance to explore new paths!
Thanks in advance for the help and get out and enjoy the weather!

Yesterday was the first time I have begun to seriously look into wedding venues and I was met with a complete shock! Weddings are so gosh darn expensive!!! How does anyone afford them? I got so stressed looking at the estimates and it was only the first day! I cannot even imagine planning the whole thing!
I should explain it was never my intention to have a big wedding, I was content with taking our parent's and wedding party up to Michigan and getting married one weekend on the beach! However, my mother has other ideas! Did you run into the problem of trying to balance your wants with your family's? Could seriously use some advice to help rid stress!
We did however set a date. June 1, 2013! It's kinda exciting and nerve wracking at the same time to finally have a deadline! I'll keep ya posted on things as the move along and any advice or recommendations you'd like to share along the way would be appreciated!
PS How Bout This Weather?!?!
