This Month’s Quote:
Here’s my take on this month’s challenge –
The very first week of That’s What She Said is kicking off with one of my very favorite quotes by Audrey Hepburn. It’s my goal to use this monthly link up as an opportunity to define the working mom and affirm the many talents, assets and hearty characteristics that comprise her. My hope is that many a working mom will be encouraged by the reminder to embrace your role in your family and that it will also challenge us together to keep these traits at the forefront of our reputation even when things get overwhelming and we just want to break down. Today’s reminder…You, the working mom. You are beautiful and strong.
The chaos that is the working mom can often set us on the war path with the rest of the planet. We resent the endless to do list, find fault in how the rest of the world operates and lack patience and grace when it comes to our home. Exhaustion can weigh heavily on us and we often feel frazzled and defeated when we compare ourselves to others. This quote reminds me that I am beautiful and strong. That my beauty and strength as a working mom do not flow from picture-perfect hair, 4-inch stiletto heels and a smart suit. No, my beauty and strength as a working mom blossoms from my confidence in myself and in others, my belief that the world should be treated with kindness and that life should be handled with courage. True beauty and poise come from hard work, commitment to serving others and a heart that only seeks to accomplish greatness for the benefit of those around you.
The working mom is tired, but she still stands tall and walks into work ready to get started. She is overwhelmed, but she still speaks in love and has time to kiss a boo-boo away. She is present, even when deadlines and projects lurk around the corner. She lives for her family, for her life and for her accomplishments. She is timeless, graceful, classic, revered. The working mom is beautiful and she is strong.
Whether work is in sweatpants or at a corporate office. Whether you work the graveyard shift, part time or are a regular 9-5-er. Every working mom lives for her family. Be confident, but not arrogant. Be ambitious, but not overbearing. Be striking, but not intimidating. Be you. Beautiful and strong. The working mom.

Who’s ready for another week of sharing, networking, and growing your site?
We’re so glad to have each and every one of you joining us each week and can’t wait to connect with you on 2 more social medias this week!
This party is all about building and fostering a community of bloggers that actively support each other in their blogging journeys.
And, as you all know, one of the best ways for bloggers to connect with one another, is through social media.
So the Share ~ Network ~ Grow social media link up was born! We’ll be featuring 2 different social media networks on the link up each week and hope that by focusing on 2 rather than all of them every week, you will have more of a chance to connect and engage with some amazing new bloggers!
Now, let’s get this party started!
This week’s featured social media networks are GOOGLE+ and STUMBLEUPON!
The rules for this link up are very simple! (Seriously, we don’t like a lot of rules either!)
1. Please follow your host and co-hosts! We’d love to connect with all of you!
2. Grab the button if you’d like! Not mandatory at all, but we would sure appreciate it 🙂
3. ENGAGE! No one likes a link and run blogger. If you add your link, try to engage with at least one other blogger.
That’s it! See, told you it was simple!

Think Outside the Toy Box Summer Series: Kool-Aid Sprinkle Art
It’s Monday!! You know what that means…it’s time for another Think Outside the Toy Box Summer Series challenge! This week…Kool-Aid. Last week, I thought I hit the bottom of the barrel as far as low cost, spending less than $6 on an afternoon of family fun with Paper Bag Maracas, but I blew it out of the water this week! Kool-Aid was on sale at Target for $2. I already had the rest of my supplies, so $2 and we were ready to go! Time to get messy and creative with Kool-Aid Sprinkle Art.
