Pushing play

Continuing on with my crazy July....

I was blessed with a visit from one of my greatest and oldest friends. Jess and I have been friends since junior high. She now lives far away but her and her daughter came to visit us for a whole week. We had so much fun and the week literally flew by. We swam, talked, played, shopped, and tie dyed! It was refreshing and relaxing. I already miss her so.

Just a few random pics of our week
Awful pic, but give me a break....this is what lounging by the pool all day does!

Admittedly, I am not the greenest girl around, but I try my darnest! That is why I love the Good Guide website so much. It helps me to make sound eco-friendly choices ranging from the best cereals to the best detergent for cleaning our clothes. And you won't just find environmental ratings and product reviews, there's also latest news and recall notices -- plenty of good stuff. So the next time you're surfing the web, I challenge you to check it out to see how green you can be.


Annual Blueberry Patch

>> Sunday, July 26, 2009

Travelled down to Erie Orchards for our annual blueberry picking with our favorite girls. Miss Sarah and little Miss E. We had such a fun afternoon. The perfect day. Sunny, breezy and not too hot. Lots of plump, juicy berries hung thick from the bushes. You couldn't walk past a bush without grabbing a few, then a few more, then before you knew it you were standing there picking for 10 minutes. I got about 9 pounds of blueberries with the help of two handsome little pickers. We froze a bunch for the cold winter months that will soon be upon us. We also had blueberries over ice cream, blueberry buckle, blueberry cobbler and of course.... corn meal blueberry pancakes. All so very yummy!!!!!!!!!

The kids enjoying picking

By this point, Z, had ate more than he'd picked
...and lastly, whats a trip to the blueberry patch without little feet getting nasty dirty (and then tracking it in on your friends white carpet- Duh!-) Boys will be boys!!!!!!!!!!


Time to play catch up

>> Saturday, July 25, 2009

When was the last time I updated my blog? Before the Fourth? LAME-O!!!! Sorry ya'll, I've been busy. House renovations, gardening, 2 weeks of nonstop vistors (and more are still coming- ahhh!!!!), a surgery, cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning, and did I mention 2 WEEKS of out of state vistors? At one point, there were 12 bodies running wild throughout my house. Crazy I tell ya!

I will do my best to catch up. So many pictures and so many memories. So get ready for some mega posts in the next few days.

Todays post will be all American. We ventured to the local fourth of July parade. It was beautiful, if not a little chilly. Low 70's and a slight breeze. Lyric went with us and had a ball. We think she liked checking out the other doggies. Celebrating the fourth of July always makes me feel so prideful. I suppose that comes from my many years of celebrating with the military. I am so thankful for all that this great country offers me. Happy (belated) birthday America! Small town style.
