BHSM Blog Link up

Laura at "Oh, How Pintearesting" has set up another SLP link up for Better Hearing and Speech Month.  (See her awesome acronym below?)  



Buying:  It's Mother's day and this year I bought 2 tickets for an event called the Girlfriend mystery tour.  Basically, my mom and I will be boarding a bus this Fall and we will have NO idea where we are going.  This is always been my "dream date" with my husband-where he would whisk me off on an adventure.  This is better because it's planned by women-and I get to do it with my mom.  (My husband's mystery date would inevitably lead to the movies for a all night screening of the Lord of the Rings movies...)

Hearting:  Our intermittent Minnesota Spring Weather.  One day it's 70!!! The next day it's snowing.  Today it was 50.  Check out this CRAZY video of an "glacier" attacking a resort in Minnesota on May 11th!  (Just be careful at the end, because she does drop a swear word.  I'm not judging.  I'm pretty sure I would've had a couple too.)


Sharing:  Praacticalaac.org is the BEST website if you work with children using AAC.  Great suggestions and ideas for Core vocabulary strategies and moving beyond requesting during therapy sessions.  I have a few patients with devices right now and I find myself constantly sharing posts with my families from this blog.

Making:  I love making jewelry.  This weekend I'm making Sugar Skull earrings for one of my best friends from College.  It's her 40th.  (It was in November but I don't think that makes me a BAD friend necessarily-just a unique one who celebrates friend's birthdays on their halfsies.)

I want to hear your BHSM stories!  Check out Oh How Pintearesting for the full scoop and link your blog up!

Kelly, your posts always make me laugh. I can't believe the weather you have been having. Even though our weather has not really been as spring-like as it should be, nothing compares to your crazy weather! You have to update on the tour you are taking, sounds like a lot of fun!
