Five On Friday – My First Month on a New Blog Name

 

 

The month from May to June has been a busy time for me. New blog, new start, getting ready for the kid’s summer vacation and turning 38.

Five-on-FRIDAY

For my #FiveOnFriday, I decided to share how my month has been.

On June 14th I turned 38. The passed year has been amazing to me. From receiving a kidney transplant in August, to getting my G2 and able to drive on my own, and starting a new blog. While starting a new blog wasn’t my idea, my hand was forced, so far I am loving it! I hope my 38th year rocks as much as my 37th.

My Oreck Venture Pro Bagged Canister Vacuum Review video is right here. Feel free to play it if interested in learning more about it. It helps reduce pollen, allergens and dirt in your home. The best part? I know it isn’t noisy like previous vacuums I have owned because my son doesn’t say it is too loud and my dog doesn’t try to attack it!
