Mother's Day Challenge - Day 16

What a great Memorial Day weekend!  If this is an indication of how the summer is going to be, then I'm thinking this could be a great summer.

Hopefully, you had an opportunity to enjoy the weekend with your family and friends!  Before I go any further though, I want to say a huge thank you, thank you, thank you to the soldiers who fought, are fighting and those who gave their lives to protect our freedom.  Thank you also to the families of all the brave soldiers who do what they do everyday.  The support of your family is such a great gift - and the families of our troops truly deserve our gratitude as well.

Today was about getting ready for the week any normal Sunday...only it was Monday, so it's exhilarating to know that the weened will be here much quicker thank normal.  After some coupon clipping, a car wash, grocery shopping and making a batch of amazing cupcakes, I was thoroughly tired. 

We enjoyed a great evening with some friends this evening, and it was nice to sit and relax and have some great conversation.  The kiddo's were running around like crazies, and really showed us what summer means when you are carefree and young.  

Once we were home, I settled into bed and enjoyed a little "me" time in the form of an online quiz.  Wow, it was much more interesting than that just sounded.  I recently purchased Strengths Finder 2.0 and have been fascinated with it.  In a nutshell, it's a tool to help identify your natural talents and help to develop them in order to help you do, and be, your best every day.  When you purchase the book, you get a code to go online and take the assessment.  It was pretty cool!

Now that I have identified my top five strengths (Discipline, Consistency, Belief, Responsibility and Analytical); I can read on to learn more about them, and then create an action plan to help utilize these learning's in my every day life.  I am really looking forward to moving on and checking out what's next.  This was some pretty neat, and very productive "me" time.

Happy Memorial Day!
