Rain

The weather here in my little part of the world has been a bit wacky. We’ve had summer, fall, and spring like weather all in the span of what seems like hours. 

Yesterday was a scorcher it felt like summer there was a blue sunny sky and also that dreaded thing called humidity. And, than last night we got one of Mother Nature’s light shows in the form of a nice thunderstorm. 

Today, has been pretty much a complete wash. Rain almost all day, and even when it stops it’s not really stopping there is still a mist.  

I love a good rainy day especially, when you can curl up with a cup of tea and a good book. I didn’t really do that today I took care of some chores around the house and now working on making the husband and I dinner. 

A nice dinner on a rainy day why not. 

Kickball Monday

It’s that day of the week again, the dreaded Monday, however in this case it also means KICKBALL!!!!!

I time to play the childhood game, socialize with a bunch of fun adults who like to pretend they are in elementary school, cheer each other on, and have fun. And, of course afterwards enjoy some adult beverages and food. 

It was a good game against the Gucci Dolphins. Ended in a 4-3 loss. We will get them next time. We were playing with some missing players and did a lot of shuffling of positions throughout the game. We are starting to figure out where the best position is for everyone. We will get it worked out there is still a lot of kickball left to play. 


But, hey even with an out we still had fun!!! And, now it’s time to ref some games and then head on over to Bucketheads for some beverages and food. 

Life Happens

It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve blogged and well life has gotten in the way, however, I’ve realized that I really enjoy my daily blogging. Yes, some days it’s nothing more than a photo or a meme, and other days it could be a 10,000 word rambling diatribe of nonsense, but it’s an outlet. A way to express myself, whatever is going on around me, or just my thoughts on whatever it is in thinking about. 

So, even though life has been incredibly hectic I need to make the time to write my blog as it makes the day feel complete. So be prepared for blog posts from me. 

Today I want to talk about an amazing foundation that I’ve started working with. Roc Solid Foubdation is an organization that was formed to bring the Power of Play back to children faced with pediatric cancer. The mission of the foundation is to build hope through play. 

You can check them out here

Yesterday, I worked with Roc Solid and sponsor La Roche Wealth Management to bring hope to Mylo a 3 year old battling brain cancer. 

With around 20 volunteers from Roc Solid and another 30+ from La Roche we came together to clean up the backyard of the family and build a swing set for Mylo and his sisters to enjoy. It is truly an amazing feeling to see the smiles on their faces when they got on the swings and slid down the slide for the first time. To put a smile on a child’s face is truly rewarding, and add in that this is an extremely difficult time when smiles may be few and far between just makes it that much more powerful. 

I’m so excited to have found this organization to work with and can’t wait to do more with them. 

If you can make a donation to this foundation please do, because every child deserves to play. 


Yesterday’s, build was even more special as a past recipient of a Roc Solid build and his family were on hand to help with the dedication. Family members helped with the build, I actually got to work with them as they working on my section of the build, and they are truly amazing. And, lets just say a know a little girl who is amazing with a screw gun. Along with helping with the build they spoke of their journey and presented the plaque to Mylo and his family. It’s amazing to see everything come full circle. 

I am looking forward to my next build. 

Giving back is amazing find something that you’re passionate about and volunteer. No matter if it’s a once a year thing or once a week you make a difference either way. 

Hard Not To Smile

  Today I attended the circus!!!! And, if you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen a few of these photos, and if you don’t you can @checkmystyle26 

It was a lot of fun and I loved every second of it. It’s hard not to smile and feel like a kid.  

    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
  

    
    
    
    
    
   

Mother Nature You’re A Bilpolar B*tch

Yesterday, the weather was wonderful. Sunny, warm, with temps in the high 70’s. 

This morning I woke up to wind, rain, and temps in the low 40’s. Oh and later in the day even a snow flurry. 

WTF? Mother Nature please start taking your meds again as you are out of control. 

That is all. 

Kickball Is Back

Tonight was the first night of Sping Season of Kickball!!!

We had a rule clinic and then did a scrimmage as there are a ton of new players this season. 

It was a lot of fun and can’t wait for the season to officially start.

And, of course Kickball isn’t complete with a little fun at the bar.

Weirdness

I’m sitting at home just finished up doing my nails, while watching Grays Anatomy and get a phone call from a local number, so I answered it. 

It was from a woman saying she has a paper with my name, email, phone, address, and social security number on it. She was calling to tell me about it and that she was ripping it up but wanted me to know that she found this paper in her house. What!!!!

It would make a little sense if it was found in the house we had rented but no. It was in a house across the water. A city that I don’t go to. So how it got there is beyond me. And, oh it’s from 2012. The weirdest thing ever. Glad it was found by someone honest, but still this is a big WTF moment and a how in the hell did that happen. Because, not only is it a how did it get to there and oh yeah the piece of paper also would of had to go through at least 2 moves in order for it to get here. 

Something to ponder and wonder about. 

And, on a happier note here’s my latest nails 

 Bring on St Patty’s Day!
