About Me

My Photo
I am 42. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first. We have lived in Florida for 3 years (transplanted from WI) and we finally love it. I graduated with my AA in Business Foundations from UoPhoenix in February 2014! Yay, me!

Adorable Frog hat. My 54 yr old daughter collects frogs and would love to have one of these [I'd dare her to wear it to work] Cannot seem to download it, but still would love to have it to surprise her. Also, have a great grandaughter [4 yrs] that lives in England on base with parents and I would love to surprise with something like this hat. It is really cute.

Hi Phyllis.

I either copy the whole blog post and then print it. Or copy and paste it to a Word document and then print it. There isn't any other way to download it from the blog.

Thanks!
Biz
