So here we go.....

It's the last few days of school for all three of my kiddos.  We've had a crazy week so far (what? it's only Tuesday?).  I've already attended 1 Swim Day and 2 Awards.  Tomorrow, I have 1 3rd grade field day and 1 6th grade Fun Day (which is at the city park).  While I drag my 4 year old with me....luckily, my little sister in law is coming to steal him away early in the day to give him a break.  So this week, I haven't had much time to dig anything....I'm sure I can think of something.

The library! 
It's been a while since we've been and G and I stopped in the other day and of course left with an armful of books...literally I had 20 books in my arms.  We've been reading them over and over and enjoying them at bedtime.  We will definitely be getting back in this routine.  G was dressed as Peter Pan while we were there....so he was able to put a smile on some faces.

The Last Child (John Hart)
I snagged this book on my Nook the other day and haven't been able to put it down.  It's very dark and disturbing on some levels but not as bad as it could have been, thank goodness. You get sucked in to the characters.  One twin is abducted, the other left behind.  People take notice a year later when another girl goes missing.  Mystery and intrigue for sure.  Get your own copy.

You can grab it at Amazon!
 Jeff Jenkins!

He's a local boy on The Voice and he has yet to battle it out!!  We are ready to cheer him on so I'm diggin' Jeff Jenkins!!!  You can find him Facebook and Twitter.

Amazing Etsy Finds!!

Sand and Starfish is a wonderful website and now a funky, boho chic Etsy shop with that fresh beachy feel.  I fell hard for this pleated carry all....it.is.too.sweet.  I want it.  I want to shove beach towels and sunscreen in it.  I want to lug it to the library with all 40 of our books to return and fill it up again.  Cute, cute.  Check her out...fo' sho'.

Now....copy and paste these questions and join in on the fun!

1.  What is your "happy place" song?  The one that makes you smile every time.

2. Do you have a guilty pleasure? 

3.  Place that you MUST visit before you kick the bucket?

4.  Summertime is creepin'...what kind of bathing suit are you wearing? 

5.  Favorite vacation spot?


1.  What is your "happy place" song?  The one that makes you smile every time.

Here Comes the Sun  (acoustic George Harrison)...this is a definite.  No hesitation. Love this song.

2.  Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Um...yes.  Teen Mom, 16 and Pregnant, The Real Housewives (of New York or Atlanta), Grey's, Private Practice....and chocolate.  I heart chocolate.  Especially once a month when I find it beneficial to everyone in the house if I have chocolate handy. 

3.  Place that you MUST visit before you kick the bucket?

Italy, hands down.  It will happen.  I might be 80 when it does...but it.will.happen.

4.  Summertime is creepin'....what bathing suit are you wearing?

I joined the ranks of tankini moms about 6 years ago when my body decided that it didn't like bikinis anymore and started an all out revolt. The muffin top is kicking (it's probably the chocolate I mentioned above...or the half and half I put in my coffee every morning).  I am always on the look out for the "right" bathing suit for my body type...which would be a muumuu.....I give up on the "right" bathing suit.  I'm sticking to tankinis...because I honestly feel too strapped in with a 1 piece. 

5.  Favorite vacation spot?

That would be where my family is....Alabama.  My grandfather lives in South Alabama...or as my dad calls it, LA (lower Alabama).  Which is about an hour and a half away from Panama City Beach and also from my aunt's lake house on Compass Lake in Florida.  I love it there.  I have time with my family, white sand beaches and a beautiful lake.  Love it.
