Summer questions

Flip flops or bare feet? I'm mostly bare foot in the house & flip flops outside of the house. But I read recently that it's good for you to walk around outside in the grass barefoot. It can help back problems & can help you recharge to the earth.

How do you beat the heat? I drink water all day with ice. Soak my feet in water, ice packs on my head, peppermint oil. Of course tank tops.
Ice cream or snow cones? I prefer ice cream or sherbet. Sherbet is so refreshing. I love watermelon sherbet with whip cream.

Strawberries or blueberries? I love strawberries.

Fan or ac? Mostly fan for me unless it's really hot.

Happy Birthday JoJo

(This is 1 of my fave photos. Obviously It was taken a really long time ago, since Tara is almost 9. It's sad celebrating birthdays & holidays without Jo).

My girl JoJo would have been 19 today. Well we weren't exactly sure which day was her real birthday. But the 2 dates we got were in June & the 27th was 1 of them & just happens to be the day before my birthday, so we always celebrated it that day. It's been 9 months since she passed away. So hard to believe. I still miss her lots & I'm hoping to finally get her pawprint tattoo this week.

Busy Day & packing to go away

Busy weekend. I packed a bit for our trip tomorrow. But have lots more to do tomorrow morning. We probably won't be leaving too early.We have to make sandwiches & pack some snacks (a few slices of my b-day cake), chai tea, Kind bars & lots of water. What do you take on a road trip with you? We bring Lots of cds, mostly Shinedown. Also my good camera & my ipod touch to snapchat. We'll be going to the beach, so we have to pack towels & all that stuff.

Birthday freebies & cards

I went & picked this up at Sephora yesterday, a birthday present for being a Beauty insider. I really like the color of the lipstick. I haven't tried the eyeliner yet.

These are a few of the birthday cards that I've gotten so far. I've gotten so many this year. I love getting cards & happy mail.

Nail Files. Week # 262

I haven't posted Nail files lately. I've been doing my nails & meaning to post. But since A was in Malaysia for a week & Tara just got out of school, is home all the time now & was sick all this week, I got behind.
 Earlier this week I had on  Pop-arazzi~Shell Me More. This is my 1st Pop-arrazi polish. Like most mint green/pale blue the formula is horrible. It's streaky at 1st & then thick & messy. I'm thinking it might just be the shade & not all of this brand. I hope not because we bought T's teacher 2 of these polishes. It was buy 2 get 1 free. That's the only reason we tried this. 

This 1 below is 3 different polishes. The blue is Funky Fingers~Galactic Blue, Purple is OPI~Purple with a Purpose & the black is LA Color Craze, but it's a mini with no name. This was my cool concert nail polish look taken on the way to the concert.

Def Leppard Concert

Last night we went to see Def Leppard, Tesla & REO Speedwagon. We only ended up seeing 1 song by Tesla because we got there late & they went on a bit earlier.So it was Tara's 1st Lep concert (not her 1st concert). They have been my fave band since 1983.

Fun cup, but it really didn't taste that good.

Rocking out.

Kizmet Sassy

Just thought I'd do an update on our her. She is doing great. Always being active playing with your mouse & other stuffed toys. That seems to be her fave. September will be a year that we adopted her. It went too fast. She's such a sweet & funny girl.

New England Minute~Hot air balloon festival Quechee, Vermont

We went to the Hot air balloon festival in Vermont yesterday. They have it every year on Father's day weekend, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. People come from all over to see it. We saw license plates from New York, Maine, Ontario, Canada, MA & more.

Getting ready to go up in the balloon. We did the tethered 1. So you go up, but you are hitched. You don't go up too high, but get to see what it is like. It was harder than I thought it would be getting in & out. We had to climb on the lady with the short gray hair's knee to get in the basket. They let people out on the other side as we were getting in. It was $20 per person to do the tethered 1 & about $250 per person to go up in 1 to float off. haha.

We're in there, you can kind of see the color of our shirts.

Last Day of 3rd Grade

 Today was the last day of school. She was pretty sad last night. I didn't think I'd hear her say she was sad because all year I've been hearing "I hate school" or "I don't want to go to school". She met 3 new friends this year & she loved her teacher. But I'm sure next year she will have new kids in her class that she will become friends with.

Newish school

We went to check out some books last night from T's newish school. She'll be there full-time with all of her friends. Some 3rd grade, 4th grade & 5th grade. She was at the high school this year in the 3rd grade area downstairs. She loved it there & will miss it. I think it will be nice for her to be with all of her 4th grade friends. I can't believe she is going to be in the 4th grade in the Fall.

Mommy & Me Monday

We took a few pics on Snapchat the other night. I'm new to snapchat, so I'm not sure how to get rid of that bar on the pic. I've been having fun with it.

School's almost out.

Hubs is finally home from Malaysia.  He got home around 8:30pm, I was so excited to see him. It had been a long week. So now we have the last week of school. We have to go get some library books out for the Summer. She'll have to return them in the fall. Wednesday, she has a field trip & Thursday night we have Brownies. The Moms will be staying & helping with a scrapbook page. Then Friday is half day. Hoping that we will keep busy this Summer & do some fun things. Playdates & fun things. Here's hoping.

Hip Hop Dance recital

Today was Tara's dance recital. She only did 1 class this year, hip hop. She might do 2 classes next year, not sure yet. Anthony was away in Malaysia, so he couldn't be there.
