Happy Monday! The winner of the CSN Stores $60 Gift Certificate is #134 Melissa B. Congrats!!
I don't know what I was thinking. I pictured this summer being relaxing, not a lot going on, no schedules tying us down. HA! With 3 kids, including a 7 month old baby...the joke was on me! We are several weeks into summer & we are just now getting to relax a little. It just seems we have been going non-stop! One thing we have been doing though is sleeping in. Sure is gonna hurt when school starts back in a little over a month!
I was at Target last week & admiring all the fun party Summer accessories they have. I always have thought it would be so fun to have an outdoor party complete w/ the galvanized tub of drinks...cute cups.....our gorgeous hydrangeas in vases, tiki torches....children laughing & playing....good food...good friends.
Then, reality sets in.
Every time we set foot outside we get EAT up w/ mosquitoes. Both of my kids look like they have some sort of disease w/ red welps on their legs covered w/ white paste. Even I match them right now. (The white pastes is dried toothpaste...one of the few things I have found to really stop the itching!)
I live in Georgia. Can you say 95 degrees and 100% humidity? That spells M-I-S-E-R-Y for me!!
So, what's a girl to do?
Keep daydreaming I guess! :)
I found some great outdoor stuff as well as good gifts for him at Brookstone.com to share w/ ya.
Love these Adirondack chairs...especially the red one!
How fun is this! One thing I usually do in the summer is try to get the kids to the pool at least once a week. I am finding that not as pleasant this summer w/ a baby in tow. Maybe next year! :)
Does this look inviting or what?
Well, enough of my ramblings. I have just discovered I have about 3 diapers left so it appears as though I'll be loading up the kids and heading to Target. That will prolly be our big outing for the day. A little jewelry & shoe shopping for Mom....toy shopping for the kids.... in the good ole Air Conditioning...sounds like a plan for this lazy Monday to me! :)
What are you doing to keep the kids entertained this summer?
