I have been doing alot of swaps lately. I participated in a favorites swap and got some wonderful things from Sharni she lives in Australia. Love the candy it was sooo good! also got a mixed music cd I like it! And finally lots of post cards.. I am going to put them in my scrapbook. I think I will send her some post cards, she likes to collect them. was our host!

My next swap was an apron swap. I sent out two aprons, but failed to get pictures of them. It was at the time graduation was going on around here and it was crazy! I am sad to say my aprons never arrived. hosted this one!This also happened to my summer swap partner. She never got hers from me. I am talking to my post office and if nothing comes about I will send her another.

Last was Necklace and nail posish swap. I got my pal Haley again from bracelet swap. She made me a really nice Thanks Haley. was the host!

So I am going to be busy next week with lots of stuff, I am starting a spray tan business and hope to get it launched by the end of the week. I am so excited! I can travel with it and have parties and all kinds of fun stuff!

My Graduate!

My third oldest graduated last week. My little boy graduated pre-school. This happened a day apart. I planned a bbq for graduation celebration and participated in two swaps. I was wiped out....No kidding. I am just now recovering. We had family and friends out for the graduation and bbq. Yep we got a bunce house for it. Everyone enjoyed it. I have to say that seeing my beautiful little girl graduate was really emotional for me. I will admit it I cried! She is grown up and moving on to the next phase in her life. Then to see my little boy move on from preschool I cried again. The teacher put together a really nice dvd to music of the last two years. He has some really great teacher, we are going to miss them. Here are the pictures of the days events.

Summer Fun Swap

I participated in another swap this one was through Justine who also was my partner! I had a good time with this one. I forgot to take a picture of the stuff I sent her. But her is the stuff she sent me! I had a great time with this one. Thanks Justine! Here is her blog check it out.

He has to know you can't argue with a girl who has been raised in California. So here are the flip flops that angela sent me. And the cute keychain too! Thanks Angela! I am wearing the green one right now. I wore the purple the first day I got them. I didn't even let the hail and rain stop me! This is Angelas cute blog check it out and thanks to Kimberly for hosting this, it was soooo fun!

If you go to my facebook page and click on the left donation box that would be great. I will send you a cute headband that I made with a 20.00 or more donation. Just go to facebook and look for me tami baumann and help out all you can. It is for a really good cause. Here is a picture of the headbands I am making. Style may vary.

I caught this show on one night and started to watch it. I am hooked. Now I have to see the first half before it starts up again. I love the choice of songs. It's a really good cast and they all have really great voices.
I am working on some craft projects I will be posting on her in next couple days.

Week two..

Yep I made it through week two. I did one mile. It was alittle easier than I thought. The crazy weather does not help, I had to move my days around it. I think that kinda messed me up. But I am going forward. one and half miles starts next week. Wish me luck! One step in front of the other.

I'm Alive....I Think...

ok the reason I say this is for alot of reasons. One I took up running and all I can say is help me. I decided to train for the 5k for the autism awareness fund raiser. (more on that later) I hope that I can get pass the burn and not just in the legs, its also in the lungs, head, all over! My lung feels like it is going to come out of my body and it is only a half mile! Next week I go to one mile.......I hear crickets at this point. My daughter mentioned to her dad that I was training to run this 5K, he laughed so hard he had to get off the phone with her. (There is a reason why he is an ex). Well laugh go ahead,I say I'll show you... again crickets. I have a cause and that is my focus. I will do it no matter what! Also I have a few excuses as to why I have not posted since too long ago, I am busy with new jobs. I have also done some spring cleaning, I took pictures so I will post them. I am also working on some craft projects..again pictures will be posted soon.
