Chief Family Officer hosts a giveaway

Ok, if you know me, you know that my family is no stranger to Mcdonalds. My son used to beg to go to 'the french fry house'. Well, of course we have seen the 30th anniversary beanie babies. We only own about 4 of them now. We had Ronald ( Cinderella gave him away to a friend), and still have Quackly, Yammy, Fable, & Grimace. I'd love to have the entire I am sharing the info with you about the giveaway. Go to chief family officer to enter for yourself!

My friends

Of course, if you read my last post, you know I had friends come to visit. The original friend is Smart...but not wise, but we count her husband and kid as friends now, too. We had a good time. I met her oh so long college. My second college, as a matter of fact. (I've only attended 4...and do not have that many degrees to go with it :) We met at a residence hall council meeting. I have been told that I was going to help tutor her for one of her classes...but I really don't recall that part of the story. I do know that we got talking(us, talk, ha!), and eventually realized that her high school band teacher had left them, and had become my band teacher. On nearly opposite ends of the state. We thought that was pretty hilarious. And now, 14+ years later, we have no clue about that strange teacher, but we are still great friends.

Random whatever *playing catch-up*

Ah, a *few* more days have gone by, with no blog posts to show for it. I guess you'll just have to take what you can get my friends :)

I had a wonderful birthday...complete with friends and food, etc... no cake though. I'm really not sure why. It's ok.

We had friends come in to stay "at the beach" for most of the week. We ate plenty of course. I even have a pretty decent tan happening. I hit the sand and surf quite a few times. I was actually able to go out and play in the ocean, since it was so calm and clear on one of the days. (I am usually a "pool" kind of gal!).

Speaking of pool, we now have our own above ground blue monstrosity. You know the kind! Really it is awesome to me, until I can save up for the huge in-ground complete with concrete deck & pool boy. It was a hand-me down from an aunt who wasn't going to use it. The water is still pretty cold...but my dear husband started filling it up on my birthday, while I was out playing around without a care in the world. It took it think about 3 days to get it full & the chemicals ready. Now I need to get an awesome raft to bask in the sun with my book & a soda...
I was 'on vacation' from my paying job, so I was able to play a good bit with my friends. I did have a couple of tasks like doctor & dentist appointments to get done, but otherwise, it was a 'whatever' kind of time.

It was a fun time, except I spent too much money on dining out. :(

Yesterday was my Granny's birthday (and my mother-in-law's). I made cake for the Granny, and we had a dinner at a family member's home. For my MIL...pretty much nothing. They don't seem to do the celebrations like my family does. At least Mr. Snippity called her!

Ah, the joy of summer! I am on a countdown to the holiday weekend. It is extra special to me, because I also celebrate my birthday tomorrow! I have always liked the number 3, because I was born on the 3rd...and this year I will be 33! I know, it is old...but it sounds good :)

Enjoy your weekend, and thank God for America!
