Have a Lovely Hot Summer Weekend!

{via this is glamorous}

"That's a castle!" 
"It looks like Mommy" 
"It's beautiful swimming."

I'm sorry, but I swoon for my little man.  He has me smitten.  And apparently, he's got a good eye :)  I have a feeling this kid is going to appreciate the finer things in life.  I better prepare him well. 

In other news, it's hot, but I'm not complaining.  Because a.) it was way hotter last summer, b.) I have air conditioning and c.) I have neither forgotten nor forgiven the May 2nd snowstorm that happened this year.

Have a lovely weekend and stay hydrated y'all!

I would happily cool off on this most fabulous of yachts

 Finally, since this post was full of so many "advice-giving" links, I have to share perhaps the best bit of advice I came across this week: 

Pin it.


  1. I LOVE all of your posts, but these are MY favorites!!!!!

    So many things to try, so many things to read.

    Edward is such a sweet little one.

  2. I looked at the photo of you and your son in your profile...no wonder you are in love with that child. I love how children express their thoughts. I used to write in a journal , all the cute things my g.kids would say. xoxo,Susie


Tell me somethin' good! I love your comments!

* I'll try to Reply to your Comments directly in the Comments section as much as I can especially if you have a question, so check back here if you've left a super-important comment that requires a response.
(i.e. Your Comment: what's up with the Biebs and Selena Gomez? My Reply: I don't know but it's keeping me up at night. He's so cryptic on Instagram, it's hard to really know)
