Montage Monday – Budding Beauty April 26, 2010

Ah, Monday, another week beginning. This is the first day of my week, 5 more days until the next weekend, 5 more days until another month.

I remember growing up and my mother telling me ‘time will go so fast when you get older, take your time growing up.’ Was she ever right! I can’t believe that winter already past and that spring is here and the leaves are quickly budding on all the tress and my magnolia which I planted last fall already has a few flowers about to open. Before I know it I will be practically copying this posting to tell you how I can’t believe it is snowing already. I know what you are thinking right now.. shhhhh Tara… don’t jinx it. So, without further ado, here’s my ode to the budding beauty of Spring.

Montage Monday – Organization March 8, 2010

With spring weather comes spring cleaning. Eeeek.

I have to admit that cleaning is something that I loathe. Not because its unpleasant, but as a stay at home mom it seems as I clean and tidy, I have a mess crew directly behind me making things worse. This is a huge roadblock in my organization.

One cool tool I found last year that I’m going to share with you is Motivated Moms. They have devised a one year check list of almost all the things you need to do to keep ahead of the chaos. I LOVE CHECKLISTS! Sure, some days, or weeks I stray away from my list, but the weeks where I have it out and accessible at least my house is clean, maybe not tidy, but clean.

Go check it out, they even have a 2 week free print out: http://www.motivatedmoms.com/products.html
