Happy Homemaker Monday

Second week into May already! I missed last Monday, so much going on and no time to get everything done that I needed to last week. But now that our Ladies Tea at church is over with, I can relax a bit and not be so stressed with getting everything ready for it.

I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.
