Fishful Thinking Thursday - Recap!

Wow! It's been SIX weeks since I started posting Fishful Thinking Thursday, so in hopes of inspiring a few more Fishful Thinking mamas to join in (I know you are out there!), it's time for a recap!

Here's where the idea for Fishful Thinking Thursday began: DREAM BIG, but start small... and if you haven't seen this cute video yet, click the arrow! It's what Fishful Thinking is all about!

And just in case you missed any of the Fishful Thinking posts so far, here ya go!

Week one: Go on a Happiness Scavenger Hunt!

Week two: I'm a FAN! (Connect with other Fishful Thinking moms on facebook.)

Week three: Abby's Fun Run (How to make your own online photo storybook!)

Week four: Sardines anyone? (Just one of TONS of games under the Keeping Kids Active link.)A favorite Sardines hiding spot! (These boxes aren't normally up against the back of the couch, but Daddy had broken them down so we could make a Halloween decoration.) Noah also thought it was hilarious when he found Abby and me hiding behind the shower curtain.

Week five: How to Be a Happier Mom (Just one of many great articles on the Fishful Thinking site. In addition to the 8 suggestions in the article, a few moms left helpful comments with tips on how we can boost our mommy moods when we are having "one of those days".)

And that brings us back here to week six! This week I'm really excited to be co-hosting a Fishful Thinking themed Photo Story Friday with Cecily of My Chaos My Bliss inspired by this Favorite Photo Optimism activity. (Not only is she a crazy talented photographer, she's a Fishful Thinking mama, parent ambassador, and FT faculty member. In fact, she's the one who recruited me!) We'd love for you to join in!

***As always, I'd love to hear your "Fishful" thoughts and ideas. And even better, if you wrote a post this week about a Fishful Thinking moment or activity, please leave the link in your comment so others can hop over and read all about it. Thanks for sharing!

I am going to have to start this one for sure! I need a little positve recap of every week! I keep forgetting about it. I will have to come up with a reminder somehow.
I am excited that you are co-hosting tomorrow! I have been crazy busy but I will for sure stop by to see it!
Where did you find that cute little video? I wouldn't mind keeping it in my side bar. Let me know if you have a minute!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Okay so after like a month I finally did "Fishful Thinking" Thursday. (Even if it was posted at 11 pm on Thursday!) I am excited to get going with all of this. I made the storybook too and I love it. Now if there was just a way to print those cute books out!
