So we are going camping in August. I am not a happy camper. It's not my thing, but glamping, yes I could do that. I think I 1st heard the term glamping on Housewives of Beverly Hills or the OC. The definition of glamping is a Fusion of glamour & camping.

Less than a month until school starts

I feel like my blog has been a bit neglected. It's hard with the Drama Queen home most of the day. She has been doing some day camps, but Thursday is her last 1 & then we have a few weeks with nothing planned, then my hubby is off for a week & then school starts 8-27. I really can't wait to get back on schedule. Of blog posting, cleaning, exercising etc... Less messes if she's in school all day too.

Mommy & Me Monday

When we went away to the White mountains we went to Downtown North Conway. They have some great gift shops & pretty flower displays. I love pink & purple.

Eye trouble

Not my eye. Photo from Pinterest.

So I think I have conjunctivitis. On Friday Tara was asking me about it & then yesterday I woke up with my right eye stuck together. She thought she might have it. It's gotten worse today & now I have green gunk coming out of my left eye. I've never in my life had it before. I'm calling my eye doc tomorrow to see if I can get in & get checked. It changes our plans for tomorrow. We have a lot going on the next 2 days & T has a Sweet treats camp Mon-Thurs. So we'll see how things go. I can barely see out of my left eye because there is a film over it. Problems problems.

Scrapbook pages

I got 6 scrapbook pages done today. I've been wanting to scrapbook for the past few weeks, but haven't had the time. Sorry the pics aren't clear. I took them with my ipod touch.

Nail files. Week # 133

This week is Zoya~Zara. I added a few coats, since I've had it on all week. A few of them got a little bit smudged. It's a pretty purple with a bit of gold through it. I just took the polish off & am doing my nails with a new polish I got this week.

New look

I updated my blog a bit last night. I want to change it up a little bit more too. Need some change & a new look. I'm also working on ideas to redecorate our house. Just move things around & get a few new things. We've lived in our house for almost 7 years, so I want to refresh the house. Maybe get some new pillows for our couches in the living room & some new curtains for my office, I'm thinking light blue/aqua. Right now my office is pink, black & white. I love decorating, but don't have a lot of $ to work with. I will post photos as I make some changes.

Random things

Happy Mail has been slow lately. This happens every Summer. So sad. I'm still writing letters & sending them out. I need to do some raks & I posted on 1 of my Smashing groups that I'm looking to do some  swaps. Bloggyland has been slow too. A lot of people are taking time off for the Summer. I post year-round. Not many comments & life seems a bit boring. haha. I've been listening to a lot of music lately (more than usual). I've been having a bit of anxiety, so that helps. I started buying some new cds & have a list of more that I want to get. I need to get help getting music on my Ipod. I've never had any music on there (I've had my ipod for 2 years in August). If I'm near wifi I listen to You tube or I heart radio, but if I'm not near wifi, no music. I want to start walking with music. Hoping to start catching up on You tube videos & stuff on my dvr. I watched a few shows today. There's tons of reality shows all on now. So it's really easy to get behind. Batchelorette is finishing up, but Housewives of  NJ is back on now & Don't be Tardy is back, but I didn't set the dvr for that & Witches of East End is back now too.

Finally 7 years old

 I can't believe that Tara is 7 & going into the 2nd grade. She's sassy & spirited. She loves her friends & dancing & crafting. Justice is her favorite store. She loves dolphins, rock n' roll & Katy Perry, Lemonade mouth, peace signs, smiley faces & bikinis. She's good at math & can swim really good now. I hope that she has a really fun year.

Mommy & Me Monday

We took this photo after Tara's birthday party yesterday. I can't believe that she is 7. Time really does fly by.

The almost Birthday girl

Today we had Tara's 7th birthday party. Her b-day is really tonight at 1:40am. She had a dolphin theme. It was nice to see our friends, it's been a while. She gots lots of nice things.

Bathing suits

I don't swim or go in the water, other than just putting my feet in the water or maybe up to my knees. I have a 1 piece bathing suit, but it has gone missing. If I was to buy a new bathing suit, I would get something like these 1s below from I'm really thinking about getting the top 1. These really don't even look like bathing suits. I think they are really cute.

The Undomestic Goddess

I finally finished this book. It took me forever, just because I've been busy. Staying up doing other things & Tara is out of school for the Summer. I thought it was really cute. I'm hoping that I can read my next book out on the hammock. That would be nice for 30 minutes, 1 Sunny day. I had hoped to do that with this book, but it didn't happen.

Mommy & Me Monday

While we were up at the White mountains this weekend, we stopped at a river. We had to climb down a steep hill with all rocks, to get down to the river, but Tara & A had so much fun. I sat on a rock & took photos & read a magazine (I was getting kind of bored). So this was taken while we were down at the bottom

Traveling again

We are off to my hubby's friend's condo until tomorrow. It's about 2 hrs north of us. We will be heading up the Kangamangus highway. We'll be checking out some waterfalls & doing some shopping. This Summer is flying by, but we've done a lot of things from my bucket list so far. Hoping to complete them all.
