Time to Sparkle #70

Is everyone enjoying summer?  This week we  are experiencing better summer weather.  It is much warmer and sunnier here in my part of the world.  Of course the week the kids go camping with the in laws, it becomes great pool weather.   I guess I could go by myself to the pool and enjoy the peace and quiet of the lazy river.  Well, the quiet meaning no children of my own splashing me and trying to flip my tube.

Let’s get to the fun part of this post.  The part where you take over and share the fun, awesome, and radical things happening in your life. It’s sparkle time!!!  I seriously have so much fun looking through your links.  You are some mighty talented people :-)

Time to Sparkle #69

Ok, this summer is just flying by.  We were in Target this morning, and all the summer stuff is on clearance to make  way for…school stuff.  Yup, it’s already that time of year where we have to switch gears and start thinking school.  Although quite honestly, we still wait until the week before school starts to start getting everything on the list.  And I saw Christmas stuff at Hobby Lobby.  What the what?  Seriously, I think it gets earlier every year.

So, instead of thinking about school…although, I must admit I’m ready for my monsters to be back to a good routine…let’s think about summer fun.  How would you like to win a Char-Broil Gas Grill or a $300 Amazon gift card.  Make sure you head over HERE to get entered.  How fun would it be if one of my readers won this giveaway :-)

Happy Share Day!!!  I look forward to this day every week.  I hope you are enjoying sun filled days at the pool with plenty of milkshakes or smoothies to keep you cool.  Last week the weather was sketchy but we managed to have one day full of plenty of sunshine.  The kids enjoyed playing with friends, and I enjoyed catching up on some reading and tanning.  My daughter has a math help class in the afternoon this week, so the pool day will have to wait until next week.  I am already scoping out the weather to see which day is best.

Did you all see the fun theme week last week?  It was banana split everything, all week!  I definitely had a blast coming up with new and creative ways to showcase the banana split flavors.    Make sure you check out the links below to see what Aimee and I came up with.

We are officially getting old.  Today was my oldest son’s birthday, and he keeps informing me that he is now old enough to start driver’s ed.  No way jose!  I am boycotting it completely!

Of course I told him I was canceling his birthday completely, but that didn’t happen. LOL!   So while I go cry in the closet that my kids are getting so old, let’s get this party started :-)

Do your kids beg to get the sprinkler out and then play in it for like 5 minutes?  Our 2 younger kids wanted to play with a new sprinkler toy yesterday after sitting outside at a hot baseball game.  5 minutes later they were done because the water was too cold.  At least they are old enough to do all the set up and clean up with the hose and sprinkler now, so I guess it doesn’t matter how much time they spend.  We just thought they were funny for being out such a short time.  Maybe next time it will last 8 minutes!

Are you ready to shine like super stars?  I am ready to see all the fun projects you have worked on the past week.

I know I keep saying this, but summer officially found us.  Today was extremely humid and muggy!

Unfortunately it was a busy day and we didn’t have time to hit the pool.  Hopefully that will happen later this week.  Our youngest is at the end of baseball.  We had our first tournament game tonight.  Sad face…they lost.  The first 3 innings they were neck and neck, but the other team was able to get ahead enough in the next inning.  I think our boys lost their drive after that.  Hopefully tomorrow night’s game is better.

subscribe

One more quick thing before we get partying.  I finally set up an official email for my blog.  I decided it was time to stop relying on Facebook and Pinterest to get the recipes out to you.    If you would like to sign up to receive recipe posts in your inbox each time, go HERE.  I am excited to start building a good base of readers through emails.

Now to get on with the party…

Happy Monday to all my friends out there.  I hope your week has started out good.  We spent the day driving home from vacation.

Our summer vacation started out with a trip to visit our friends Mickey and Minnie in Orlando.   A week of fun in the sun, and we are definitely all parked out now.  Roller coasters, storm troopers, Dole Whips, and fireworks…I’ll share some pictures later after I have emerged from the mountain of laundry that I’m working through.   What fun plans do you have for this summer?

Ok, it’s party time.  I’m looking forward to seeing all those amazing creations that you have been working on.

What a whirlwind of a weekend!!

I spent the last few days in Miami, FL at the BlogHer Food conference.  It was so fun to connect with so many awesome food bloggers that I read online.  There were lots of late nights chatting at different parties and events.  Then on Saturday evening I was privileged to speak on a panel regarding bloggers working with brands.  It was definitely nerve wracking, but there were so many wonderful people praying for me during that time.  God totally calmed my nerves and helped me to speak clearly.  Hopefully we were able to present some good information.  I couldn’t believe how fast that hour went.

Today it was back to work as usual.  Not that this job of blogging really feels like work.  Hhhhhmmm…working from home and making money while I create recipes in comfy clothes.  Nope, definitely doesn’t feel like work.  Best. Job. Ever.

I am looking forward to seeing all the awesomesauce recipes and projects you link up.  You guys are so talented and blow me away every single week!!!!

This month is flying by with all the activities that happen in the last month of school.  Plus, we have soccer and baseball games that have been keeping us busy too.  This week I am getting ready to head to the BlogHer Food conference in Miami, FL.  Shopping and some light packing has already happened in between trying to juggle kids activities and blog work.   If you are going to be a the conference, please look for my blonde curly head and come say Hi!!!  I would love to meet you!

This conference it totally putting me out of my comfort zone.  I am speaking on a panel about Bloggers and Brands.  Can we just say I’m getting more and more nervous the closer it gets.  I am so not a public speaker, and I just might hyperventilate right before it starts on Saturday night.  Does any one have any questions or advice about Bloggers working with Brands?  Any miscommunications or misunderstandings that go through yours or PR reps heads that you would like answered?  I would love to have some of your questions to go over before hand!!

Now let’s party!!!  Bring on all the fun projects and recipes that you have been working on.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!  Did you celebrate with all things Mexican today?  I have to admit that we actually did not.   We did have enchiladas for dinner…but they had a fun twist to them.  No Mexican in them…unless you count the green chills. But seriously not Mexican at all!

Stay tuned because that recipe will be coming soon!  Can I just tell you that I am totally having a blast creating dinner recipes too!!!  Who knew that dinner could be as fun as dessert!  Did I seriously just write that?!?!?!  Don’t worry…I still like dessert the best!!!  And I have way more of those kinds of recipes coming :-)
