Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend (if you live in the U.S.). A three-day weekend is always nice, and we had a lot of family time.

Saturday, I took my daughter shopping. She has grown a lot since last summer, and she's outgrown all of her shorts and capris. Saturday night, the kids and I went to a party at a campground where my husband was playing music. It's not very often the kids get to go since he usually plays places where you have to be 21.

Yesterday, we all went to a cookout at my brother-in-law's. It was a fun afternoon of visiting and eating lots of good food! We also listened to the Indianapolis 500, otherwise known as the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing."

Today, we were supposed to meet my dad for a picnic, but it got rained out. After being so busy the past couple of days, it was nice to just relax around the house. We'll try to meet up with Dad next weekend.

I love Memorial Day because it is a great kick-off to summer, fun time with family, and time to remember those who have passed on before.


  1. Glad to hear that you all had a nice long weekend!

  2. Oh my goodness! I received my Pay It Forward package yesterday. Thank you so much! I love everything, especially the Starbucks gift card. We don't have one in our small town, but there is one about 30 minutes away. It came at the perfect time because I am planning on meeting a friend for pedicures and I will bring my card for a special treat at Starbucks, also! Thank you again!!

  3. Thanks for the awesome package from the Pay It Forward Challenge. If you read my post, you'll see cucumber melon is my favorite scent. Thank you Thank you. I was so excited to pay it forward that I already blogged about your package and the challenge!

  4. Your kick off to summer sounds great! I hope that your summer goes well with lots of fun!

    My package came yesterday!! OMGosh it was filled with so many wonderful things!! Thank you so much :) I posted my challenge today and hope to get a lot of entries!

  5. Yeah!!! I'm so happy you all received your packages safe and sound. I was a little worried the hand sanitizer would bust and leak on everything! I thought the Starbucks card would be a winner. All bloggers need their coffee, right?
