Win It!

The 4th of July is creeping up on us and I'm already perusing the seasonal aisles at the stores scoping out the patriotic sweets  (seriously, did anyone notice that we're nearing the end of May soon?) Anyways, remember the red, white, & blue ribbons from this post last year that I made?  I found the idea from a manual full of fun other ideas from a course Emily & Jenn put together.  And good news - they want to give away a copy of their course 'Secrets to Bow Making Success' to a reader of this blog!

So if you have a little girl (or a little girl on the way), know of someone else who has a little girl, or just plain want to learn how to do it yourself (they even show you how to make wrapping paper bows and bows for holiday events), first visit here and grab your free hair bow lesson (yep, Emily & Jenn want everyone to get at least one free lesson) and then come back here and leave a comment saying that you want to enter to win the full course. It's that simple!

And don't forget to show some love to these woman entrepreneurs Emily & Jenn by visiting all three of their websites:

Contest ends this Friday 5/27 at noon (EDT).  
Winner will be emailed the downloadable course and also receive the DVD in the mail
Come back then and see if you've won

A Little Backyard Paradise

Doesn't this look nice?  Or more like absolutely amazing?

We thought so.

But since we're a good ways away from any place that would even remotely resemble this picture, we decided to improvise.  Cashing in some credit card rewards points and one Amazon click later, we had this sweet handmade thing on its way to our front doorstep straight from Merida, Mexico (true story - we watched it travel via the DHL tracking).

The delivery guy barely got the package into my hands before Brant took over attaching it to a couple trees in our backyard (maybe we were anxiously listening for the truck to pull up to our house?)  A couple ropes and bungee cords later and we were in business!
We love it!  I picked  the "Matrimonial Size" Hammocks Rada over some more traditional American hammocks so all three of us could climb on and off and fit together to enjoy it without getting flipped over. And even though it may not look like it in this picture, we all can fit comfortably and relax on it.  
A little hammock reading on a nice afternoon!

Thank you Delta Community Credit Union Reward Points!

P.S. Stay tuned next week for an upcoming giveaway

Swim Season Commences

An orange carrot to go with the orange floaties in celebration of the first backyard swim of the season today - 92 degrees!.  
Showing some love for the celery too...(and then of course finding the same celery at the bottom of the pool later on).

Some of the cutest bathing beauties around!

Thank you friends for celebrating with us...and thank you Rite Aid for last year's 75% off pool and inflatables clearance.

Booster Shots Aren't So Bad

When you get to come home and play in the red painted sandbox that was built especially for you over the weekend.  

...and when you've found the blue suction ball.

P.S.  Hey local mamas - tomorrow is the 2nd Tuesday of the month and (if your looking for something to do) that means free admission to the Children's Museum of Atlanta.  Pics are on Savannah's blog from when we went last month.
