Currently July and Giveaways

Oh my goodness....JULY is here! Where has my summer gone? Please slow down.... My oldest son just got home yesterday from two weeks at sleep away camp! I scrubbed him down and showered him with kisses and hugs. Boy did I miss him. Now, let's take a look at what is going on Currently:

1. I don't watch soccer, EVER. However, I make an exception during World Cup. We are getting ready to watch USA beat Belgium. GO USA!

2. I am loving my summer vacation time. We just got back from a few days in Napa. Just the hubs and I ALONE for a few days, wine tasting, good food and some down time. It was much needed and overdue. As many of you know, getting away without the kids is very difficult to do. The hubs and I need to make this a more regular thing. It's just good for everyone.

3. I can't wait to get to VEGAS! I feel like we have been planning and talking about it forever! Now I want to be face to face with all my blogging buddies and have a great time together.

4. Right now, I don't have a ton of wants. Life is good. 

5. I need to get a man/pedi before Vegas. The biggest decision will be what color to choose.

6. I love the Fourth of July! It is a day full of eating, drinking, swimming, relaxing...who can complain about that? This year we decided to have a taco bar so everyone can nosh all day. We are going to BBQ some carne asada and chicken and add all the fixin's. And of course, you can't have a taco bar without margaritas! YUM! I just can't wait.

  1. First of all, super jealous you are going to Vegas!! I am sure it will be an unforgettable experience! Your taco bar for the 4th sounds RIGHT up my alley! I loooove Mexican (am eating guac as I type). Have a great time with everything!

  2. Your summer sounds amazing! I hope you enjoy Vegas. I have a friend going who is presenting-- I wish I could be there! :) Also, have you checked out the OPI colors for mani/pedis? The names they give the colors crack me up! I just had a girls day and my mom got the color "My Chihuahua Bites" for her pedicure. Ha... we found that hysterical! Check it out! ;) Have a good July, Jaime!

  3. Oh my goodness I LOVE Vegas! I hope you have a great time! My favorite polish color, I believe it's by OPI as well, is called Cinderella! It is a light blue with light sparkles in it! SO pretty!
    Have a fabulous time there!

  10. I am headed to Vegas too! Got my mani and pedi yesterday! Sounds like Napa was wonderful. I know how hard it is to get away with out the kids. I really can't remember the last time the hubby and I had a vacation just the two of us. At least we have date night once or twice a month! Have a great 4th and enjoy your taco bar, sounds yummy!
