first of all -
i haven't drawn a winner yet for the book giveaway in my last post. i'll do it by this weekend, i promise! so, i'll leave it open until i do so. :)
okay. moving on...
you know it's summer when you start getting invited to BBQs and bonfires. such summer fun. my friend mario hosted a BBQ over the weekend. lovely carne asadas, yummy watermelons, good friends, and one adorable doggie.
had a beach bonfire for the fourth. the weather forecasters lied - they said it was going to be really hot, even at the beach - but it was cloudy the entire day. still managed to jump in the water, boogie board, and get wiped out by some crazy waves along the way...getting salt water into your eyes, mouth, nose AND ears is not cool. but riding on those waves? way fun.
also way fun to catch up with a good friend, an older friend from high school, meet new people and make new ones. and good food, especially s'mores, can't hurt either. i had a lovely time.
(and i took way too many pictures, so sorry for the overload)
in other news...check this out. so honored! and check out some of the lifts in the TOTM gallery...i think i like them more than my originals. haha :)
