Simple Shrimp Scampi Recipe

I don't eat a lot of seafood, but one that I know I enjoy from time to time...along with many other people is shrimp!! In fact, I have a terrific shrimp recipe that I'm sure many people would enjoy trying. It's a simple shrimp scampi recipe that is easy to prepare and make. With the busyness of life it's nice to know that there are still great tasting recipes that anyone can make. My simple recipe is as follows:

About a pound of large unpeeled fresh shrimp
2 cloves of garlic...mince them
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/4 cup of oil your liking (optional)
Pasta of your choice

You can sautee the garlic in the oil for a couple of minutes. Next you'll add the butter and shrimp. Once the shrimp are a little pink....turn down the heat and let cook fully. If so desired you can sprinkle with parsley and then serve over your choice of pasta or rice. Enjoy!!

I don't recall where I got the exact recipe, but I'm sure I've made some alterations to the ingredients to suit my liking. As many people who cook know...the best part about a recipe is that it can be changed up to suit your taste and style. I'd love to hear of some of your favorite simple domestic seafood recipes!

In fact, if you absolutely love to cook, and love can actually look into the Great American Seafood Cook off. I think my dish would be a great contender in this event, and I'm sure many of you have recipes that would as well. I'm really excited that there's an event like this. It's fun to see people's creativity in the kitchen come alive!! I think what I like most about this cook off is the positiveness of domestic seafood sustainability mainly because the source is known and the food is fresh. Look into it today on their site for more information.

Basement Transformation

Our basement is really coming together. We have little minor things that still need to be done....but what a difference carpet and paint makes! Wow. For those who don't know what we've all done....our basement was partially finished, but not very usable. Not for us anyways. We decided to take down a a wall...carpet...and paint. In the end we now have a bedroom, playroom and family room out of the project. It's been fun watching the transformation. Here's a quick peek at what it looked like when we first started our remodel and what it looked like towards the end....

Baby Signing

Kaelyn absolutely loves watching her Baby Signing Time video. All I have to do is start singing the song from it and she turns right towards the television or gets a big smile on her face and starts clapping her hands. When we first got this dvd as a baby gift I wasn't sure how much we'd use it or how much she'd like it. However, as she gets older I would say it's her favorite thing to watch. It's teaching her things too....she now signs more! It's too cute!! (in the picture included in this post, I couldn't even get Kaelyn to look away from the tv to take a pic...she was watching them sign "dog") :)

Nasty Weather

Wow, there sure was a bad storm that went through the area this morning!! I didn't even know that it was supposed to rain!! All of a sudden the sky got dark and I hear thunder roaring. The next thing I knew, the swing in the backyard was tipped over by the high winds and we lost cell phone service. I guess it was pretty bad all over the area. In a near by town there was even a plane that went down that killed 7 people. It's definitely not a day to be outside, that's for sure!

Growing Girl

Kaelyn sure has been on the move lately. As she gets better at pulling herself up and standing along furniture, we're also finding that she's walking along things more easily as well. It's fun to see, but sometimes she's quite brave when doing it. For instance, the other day we were getting her ready for a bath...and the next thing we knew she was standing up next to the tub. Obviously with tile floors this is a bit scary. It goes to show that we have to watch her every second. It sure is fun to see her learning new things though...what a big girl!

Fair 2008

Scott and I have only lived here for a little over a year. We're still learning all the fun things our town has to offer. This summer we've learned how fun, yet busy this time of year can be with the fair going on. It works out well for us though, because we live close enough to the fair grounds that we can actually walk over and enjoy all that they have to offer. We thought it would be fun to check it out the other night with Kaelyn, and I'm really glad we did. Kaelyn loved seeing all the little animals. It goes on all week/ who knows...maybe we'll check it out again sometime?!

Make Money With Surveys

The news never ceases to amaze me. Whether it's a death of a popular movie star....teen actresses getting pregnant...or a star going to's sad to say but it's become pretty normal and something many of us are used to hearing about. In fact so many people are up to date on what's going on in hollywood that they are actually taking surveys about it. If you'd like to do this, as well as take surveys on other interesting issues while getting paid....check out dNeero today!

Body jewelry

Every where I go, it seems that there are more and more people with body jewelry. Whether it be eyebrow rings, nose rings...or even those people showing their belly's a trend that seems to be getting more and more popular with each year that passes. It's popular with both boys and girls. I'm always amazed at the variety of body jewelry that is out there when I see it. You hardly ever see one person with the same jewelry as another.

Surveys For Money

I enjoy doing surveys from time to time. They're not only a way to make a little extra money from time to time, but it's also a lot of fun to give my opinions and make a difference. I'm involved with a few different companies, and recently just learned of one more...A.W. Surveys. So far I'm pretty impressed with them...they have lots of surveys for you to do right away. If you like doing surveys every once in a while and would like to earn a little extra money you should check them out.

Medical Software For PDAs

I don't know about you, but one of thing that's even more frustrating than waiting in the waiting room at the doctor's office, is waiting in the room while your doctor steps out for information on your prescription or health care coverage. I know this is their job and that it's important for them to get the information right...but sometimes it just gets very old. That's why I was happy to hear that Epocrates, Inc has helped to create medical drug reference software for the doctor's PDAs!! Now they can find information like drug dosing, side effects and health plan coverage right there in the room with you. I think it's a great thing and something every doctor should have! What do you think?
This announcement was paid for by Epocrates

Lunch Time

It's 2:30 and this is the first time I've even had time to think about lunch! I suppose I better go find something before Kaelyn wakes up from her nap soon. Then I won't get lunch at all. It's funny how quickly the days go fast in fact that sometimes I forget to even get lunch for myself! Oh well...that's how it goes some days I guess. Now it's just a question of what to have...hopefully there is something in the cupboards?!

Basement Coming Along

Well...I'm happy to say that the basement is coming along very nicely. Right now we're working on finishing the painting, then the carpet comes Friday...then we can finally move all of our furniture back in!! YEAH!! We've had a few bumps in the road, but by the end of the weekend, we're hoping to have it pretty well put together and finished. It went from being about a month long project, to a two month project...but it's SO worth it!! I can't wait to have it finished. I'll definitely have to take pictures and post them on here!!

Monaco Rare Coin

I'm sure many have heard of Monex they are a trusted leader when it comes to precious metals investments and have been for nearly 40 years!! They have, and continue to help people with their investment needs! Even though you may have heard of them before, you may not have heard of Monaco Rare Coin, which is a part of their company. They offer a unique variety of resources for inevestors and collectors to help them make an informed decision on which rare coins to get. Their knowledgeable professionals are also very helpful. If you'd like to learn more about what Monaco Rare Coin can do for you...head over to their site for more information today!

Our Home

I don't know if the housing market is picking up or not...but it seems some of the homes in our area are selling pretty quickly now...even homes that have been on the market for a long time. It got me think mortgage lenders, but once we were able to one that worked for us we were on board. Our housing process actually went very smoothly. I hope it's beginning to go that way for other people in search for homes.

Fun Parade

It was a nice day today. We headed back home to see the parade with my parents, and Kaelyn loved it! She sat on Grammy and Grampa's laps the whole time and just loved watching the floats go by. She was even clapping for cute! We decided that this is a parade that we'd like to take her to every year. We like the smaller town was a lot of fun!

Zenni Optical

Recently I was just telling my husband how badly I need to go see the eye doctor. I was also expressing my frustrationn with my glasses and how I should really be looking into getting some new ones. When it comes to buying new eye glasses, one the biggest reservations is money! I decided to go looking around online and found Zenni Optical. Zenni Optical was on FOX news! I learned that after finding out about them online. I thought that was pretty neat! They offer all kinds of great frames, lenses, etc at outstanding prices!! I'm really excited to have found them and wanted to spread the word with others who might be looking for some Incredible Stylish New Frames From Zenni or Zenni Optical $ 8 Rx Eyeglasses as well. Check it out and see what you think!

Is It The Weekend Yet?

It's only Thursday and I am already looking forward to the weekend. Saturday we get to take Kaelyn to another parade with my parents. I think she'll really enjoy it. Then Sunday my brother and Scott are going to go golfing with my dad for his birthday. This is a hobby that they all have in it should be a lot of fun for them. Me, Mom and Kaelyn will all relax and enjoy our time together while they're out playing. Should be a fun weekend.

Neat TV Show

Scott and I like watching home shows about remodeling and things like that. The other night as we were watching our favorite channel, we watched a story about a family who was seeking foreclosure help. It saddens me that so many people are in this situation. I'm glad that this television show was able to help them out by giving them a nice place to live. They so appreciated it!! These are the kinds of shows that I really enjoy watching!

Fun outting

Kaelyn and I always enjoy getting out and doing something during the day. Today we decided to go down and meet my dad for lunch for his birthday!! We had a great time. I'm glad it worked out that he could meet with us. It's nice being home and able to do things like that every once in a while. Kaelyn had fun seeing Grampa too!! Hopefully he has a nice rest of his birthday. He deserves it!

YoNaturals...Doing Something about Childhood Obesity

Having been a preschool teacher and having a baby has really kept me up to date on the issues we face with young children. One of these is the health issues and dietary inconsistencies of children. It seems to be a problem that we are seeing more and more and it's good to know that there are organizations and people out there willing to help make it better. Who you might ask??

Well the first one that comes to mind is YoNaturals - Healthy Student Vending! They are a company which recently launched It's a great site that helps provide healthy eating options in school vending machines. They make it really easy for schools to help children with dietary problems by providing a 7 step guide on how they can help using their healthy vending machines.

Does this sound like something you'd like to learn more about, or implement in your child's school? If so, the first thing you need to do is speak with the school administrators. Together with the children you can then go over the product list of YoNaturals and find healthy alternatives for vending machines in schools. Even sampling some products might be a good way to get students excited and the word out there about this wonderful option.

I was really excited to learn more about YoNaturals and all they are doing to stop Childhood Obesity and I know you will be too! Check out their site today to learn more.

First Trip To The Pool and To The Zoo!

We had a great time this past weekend. I wish more weekends were as relaxing and laid back as that one!! We were able to take Kaelyn to the pool for the first time. The water was a bit cold, but as she got used to, she enjoyed playing! She just hung out in the zero entrance part and crawled around. She also enjoyed watching the other kids there as well!

We also got the chance to take her to a zoo not far from where we live! She loved that too!! She enjoyed watching all the animals...especially ones that she could see up close like the fish in the tanks. She did so well. We'll definitely be taking her back someday soon!!

Reading To Your Baby

Thankfully due to the couple of years that I was teaching preschool...I gathered a lot of great children's books. It really has been a nice collection to have now that we have Kaelyn. Even though she's only 8 months old....she absolutely LOVES to be read to and even enjoys turning the pages and looking at the bright and colorful pages. I would have to say her favorites are probably Brown Bear and Five Little Monkeys! It's so fun to watch her as she learns new things every day. I know reading is so important and that's why it's something we do each and every day!

She actually loves books so much, that I've considered getting her some of those personalized Children's books from They have a wealth of products available and their site is super easy to use! If you'd like to learn more about books like this...ones that will get your kids involved, check out their site today!

Starting Solid Foods and Water

When Kaelyn began eating solid foods...we were told that it would be a good idea to also introduce her to a little bit of water each day as well. We began preparing by looking at water purifiers and finding one that would suit our needs best. We wanted to make sure that she was getting the purist water possible. Along with that, we also were on the hunt for the different foods we would need to get started. I am making all of her foods, so planning a head of time is key. So far it's all going very well...she's a great eater!

New Camera and Printer

Having Kaelyn I have begun to realize how much we use our camera. So much so, that Scott and i have seriously been discussing getting a new one sometime in the near future. Aside from that the need for a new printer. Sometimes I would rather print off pictures than order them and have to go get them. In looking at printers though...many of them are quite expensive. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if the prices drop or not.

A Second Laptop

Not all that long ago...Scott and I got a new computer. We have a desktop, but when our old laptop went out...we decided to get a new one. We just love it. In fact, we love it so much that we've often discussed getting a second one. There are so many times that we're both sitting in the living room...both needing the computer for one reason or another. A second laptop would definitely make it easier to spend time with one another. Who knows...maybe someday.

Fun Weekend Plans

I think this weekend, Scott and I may take Kaelyn to the Zoo. We'll have to see how the weather is for sure...but it's at least in the plans tentatively. We're both really excited to take her and see her facial expressions and she looks at all the animals. She's very observant and I think she'll really enjoy something like this. We may also be taking her to the local pool tomorrow afternoon if it's nice out. She's swam in her little pool in the backyard...but a big pool will be a new experience. I'm looking forward to it.

Having a place to find affordable prices on prescription glasses that are still stylish is very important to many people. If you're looking for something like this, look no further than online! They have glasses from only 8 dollars! I like the large selection that they offer for frames and lenses. You're sure to find exactly what you're looking for at a price you'll love! So, what are you waiting for? Head over there today and check it out for yourself. Also find Zenni on Fox .

Carpet Update

Yesterday we got some good news about our new carpet in the basement. We've been wondering when we're finally going to get it put that will definitely be the biggest change and one that will be the finishing touch on all the work we've done. We got a call yesterday telling us that they can put it in on the 25th! I was a little bummed that it was still a couple weeks away....but I'm sure it will come fast. I'm really excited to have it done.

Thursday, July 10, 2008


I've talked many times about making money online...specifically blogging for money. There are many places to do this, but Bloggerwave is probably one of my favorites. Who are they? Well, Bloggerwave is a company that wants to help you make some extra money while blogging. They give you the opportunity to make some really great money just by writing about the things you're interested in. They want to become Europe's biggest advertising media on blogs and they want your help to do that. You can join and make money by checking out their site today!!

Time Flies!

Can you believe it's already Thursday? I can't!! Wow!! It doesn't seem like it should already be nearing the end of the week. Time sure does go by when you're busy. I was telling Scott that the summer just seems to be passing us by. We still have a lot to get done in our yard and with our house....things that we need to do before winter. It feels like it's going faster than we have time for. Hopefully it slows down a bit.

Online Shopping Made Easy

Many of us find that life gets more and more busy each day that passes. That means that leisure and fun activities like shopping have kind of been pushed to the side. The last thing I want to do at the end of the day is go out shopping. That doesn't mean I don't like shopping, but I just like to do it from the comfort of my own home online. It helps to save time, money and means I don't have to even leave my house!! is a great service to use. They are sure to help you find great deals on everything found on the web!! They search for you to find sales all over the matter what it is you're looking for. You are able to find the best sales all in one place! How great is that?!?

If you're looking for an easy way to shop, definitely head over there today for more information!! The layout of their site is so easy to use. For instance, maybe it's team sports you're looking into. Well...go into their directory, find team sports and under that is a number of categories you can search, football, cheerleading...the list goes on and on! Don't just take my word for it though...see for yourself at today!!

First Time Swimming

Tomorrow will be a fun day for Kaelyn. Her Aunt Stacie has some time during the day to spend with her. So, we're going to get out her little pool for the first time and Stacie and Kaelyn will get to swim together. It's supposed to be warm and by the afternoon the water should be warm and Kaelyn should be all rested to go swimming in the backyard with Stacie!! I am going to be sure to get pics of this fun it's the very first swimming experience for Kaelyn of any kind.

Need new glasses?

I have been thinking lately about getting a new pair of glasses. Mine not only need a new prescription in them, but also need a little more style! In looking around I came across! They sell stylish prescription sunsensor lenses, tinted sunglasses lenses and great frames as well! The best part about isn't only the style they offer...but also their low prices! If you're in need of great glasses for a terrific price...check out them first!

Great Long Weekend

We sure enjoyed our long weekend! We had the opportunity to take Kaelyn to the parade, to the lake for the first time and best of all had lots of time to spend with family!! Sunday my brother and his family came from Texas with their little boy and it was so neat to see he and Kaelyn playing together. Their little baby talk was the cutest!! I wish that they lived closer so they could play more often. Soon they will live closer and that will happen!! It was such a great weekend....too bad it had to go by so quickly!

Friday, July 4, 2008


Recently Scott and I have been talking about taking a little family vacation. When I get time, I have been looking online to see what some of our options are as far as fun places to take kids. Of course there's you're typical Orlando vacations, and not that I'm against something like that some day...but Kaelyn is a little small to be taking that far yet. We're thinking more like a zoo vacation of some sort. We'll have to see what I find I guess.

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July!! We had a great day...and are finally sitting at home relaxing after being outdoors much of the day!! Kaelyn is sound asleep and Scott and are enjoying the air conditioned house. It was a wonderful day spent with family on the lake. I wish there were more days like this during the summer. It's going to be a great rest of the weekend as well...I can't wait! Lots of pics to come...

First Parade

I am really looking forward to tonight. It will be Kaelyn's first time to a parade. I'm hoping that the weather stays as nice as it's been all day so that we can enjoy ourselves without cold or mosquitoes for that matter. I'm going to try and get a few pictures of her there I'll be posting those after the weekend is over with. I sure hope she likes it. She's usually really attentive in public...just watching everything that's going on.

Baby Gifts

Sometimes buying someone a baby gift isn't always the easiest. People tend to get the same toys, outfits, etc for every person they know who's having a baby. If you're tired of buying the same old thing...think about checking out The Nest Baby Shop next time you're int he market for some cute baby gifts. They offer creative gifts for babies, moms and even siblings! Whether you're looking for apparel, blankets or bibs...they have it all. Personalized gifts are also available and free on many items.

Do What You Can

Boy do the days fly!! I wake up every day at 7 AM with Kaelyn. Before I know it, it's already supper time! That is how each and every one of my days go...especially during the week when it's just me and Kaelyn at home during the day! I can't believe how fast the time goes. I wish it could slow down just a bit so I felt like I could get more done in a day. Oh well...I guess I just gotta do what I can and there's always tomorrow to finish my to-do list, right?!

Do you have a green thumb??

I was a little bit disappointed to walk out in our yard today and see that many of our plants seem to be lacking water. Scott waters them every day when he gets home from work...rain or shine! I am not one with a green thumb, so I am not quite sure what the problem is. The soil seemed I watered them again this afternoon. I sure hope that having a few plants in the landscaping really has helped with the appearance of our home. It's much prettier and so much fun to drive up to. Hopefully these plants and flowers will perk up soon!

Cable Shopping Network

I don't know about you, but as a mom I always appreciate being able to shop more conveniently. It's not always that easy to find the time to go out and shop. That's why I was really happy to come across the Cable Shopping Network, or CSN. They provide a simple way of easy accessibility to a variety of collectibles and other products. Now you can easily find what you're looking for and have fun at the same time. What I liked about CSN wasn't just that they offer a wide range of items, but also that they already have a large customer base, making them one of the most successful retailers in the collectibles industry. If you'd like to learn more about the Cable Shopping Network and presidential dollars, you can check out their website or watch them on TV.

Snail Mail

Have you ever ordered something online, only to find that it's taking much longer to arrive than it was supposed to? This is a situation that I feel like I deal with often...currently with two different items I'm waiting to come in the mail. One of them is Kaelyn's bug spray and sunblock...I really was hoping it would be here by the hopefully tomorrow! I guess you never can completely rely on the mail system. We'll just have to make due...

Fun Weekend Ahead

This weekend is going to be GREAT!! We have plans almost every day and I can't wait. Our fun begins tomorrow night with the local parade that we go to every year. It should be pretty fun...I think Kaelyn will really enjoy it as long as the mosquitoes aren't too bad. Friday is the 4th...that day we spend with Scott's family at the lake. I don't think we'll be going to fireworks this year...but that's ok....I think we might be able to see them from our house actually. Saturday my side of the family has a family reunion and then Sunday my brother and his family will be visiting from Texas for a while. I haven't seen them since Christmas, so that should be a good time as well! I guess I'll have lots to talk about after the weekend is over!!


Are you into the sport of Paintball? If so, you'll be happy to know that has everything you'll need. They offer gear and equipment at the low prices you're looking for. They even have free shipping on paintball guns, paintball goggles, airsoft equipment and more! Whether you're looking for goggles, hats, hoodies, jerseys, airsoft pistols, paintballs, paintball gear or something else...they have it all!! They carry brands like JT USA, Kingman, Tippmann, PMI, Empire, Zap, Nelson, etc. All of the big name brands that you're sure to love. Have a look for yourself at their site for more information and see why is the top choice for so many people just like you!

Many Jobs

As a mom you learn to multi-task. This is something I'm learning more about with each day that passes. I've learned to do laundry with one hand, learned to make the bed with one hand...even learned to water the flowers with one hand (something I just did today for the first time!). It's amazing how much you can do with something in one hand and a child in the other! Typically I am not holding Kaelyn when I water flowers, but we were outside enjoying sitting on the swing and I noticed that it really needed to be done. It actually went pretty smoothly....she just watched and enjoyed as the water sprinkled over all the flowers. Such a good little girl!

Where's the rain?

I woke up this morning thinking that the weatherman had said it was supposed to rain. I was actually hoping it our lawn and flowers could use a little more water than they've been getting. However, it's almost 5 and still no rain. Maybe that part of the forecast got changed?! It's actually looking very sunny out still...and quite warm as well. I suppose that's long as the rain doesn't wander in over the holiday weekend! That wouldn't be fun at all!!

Hand Drums

Have you ever seen really unique looking hand drums before? I have, and I always wondered where I could find one. Now I know, and wanted to share with others who may have thought the same thing. The hand drum specialty store, X8 Drums, announced recently that they have a new line of Pro African X8 djembe drums. They provide beautiful handcrafted drums for all kinds of people, both beginners and professionals alike. If you'd like to learn more about the djembe drums and accessories that they have to offer...simply check out their site today for more information! I don't think you'll be sorry you did!!

Teething Again

Knowing what I do from the last time Kaelyn got teeth seems as though she's working on some more. Last time it seemed like she was teething hopefully this time they will pop through a little faster. I feel so bad for there's only so much you can do to try and comfort them. Thankfully she is sleeping pretty well during the day and great at night...but she has her times when she just cries because it's hurting her. Poor babies....this teething thing is no fun!

Baby Developmental Milestones

Last month at this time I would never have guessed that by 8 months old Kaelyn would be pulling herself up to a standing position and even trying to take steps along furniture. You just never know what's going to come next with babies...or how soon they will embark on these baby milestones. I think it's really neat to watch. I look back at pictures we've taken over the months and it's crazy to think that only a few months ago she could hardly sit up without support. What's even weirder to think that in only a few short months from now she will probably be walking. things change in such a short period of time!!

Midwest Auto Recycling

Midwest Auto Recycling is a great company that specializes in used engines and transmissions. Have you ever heard of them before? Many of us come across a point in our lives when we need to replace an engine or transmission. If this time should ever arise for know that you can count on midwest auto recycling. They have one of the strongest warranty nation wide. All miles are Carfax verified and engines come assembled. You can have peace of mind knowing that all have been started, tested, cleaned and transmissions have been test driven. Expect the best from Midwest Auto Recycling. If you'd like more information...head over to their site today.

Baby Sleep Schedules

Kaelyn has set into quite the nice routine. When she was first born she was a great sleeper...only waking up once to feed for the first couple of weeks...then sleeping through the night after that. However, I remember thinking "is she ever going to go to bed earlier than 11:00??" Thankfully I now know the answer was "yes". Over the past 8 months we've gradually worked our way back to an 8:00 bedtime. So far it's going great!! As she gets older she takes fewer naps during the day, which means she's more tired at night. Not only that, but she's so incredibly active, that she's about ready to drop by 7:30. This works out perfectly...because it gives Scott and I the chance to spend some time together and get things done around the house before we go to bed. She sleep until 7:00 am...which is great!! Two, two hour naps during the day and 11 hours at night....I can't complain about that one bit!! She's such a good little girl.....

New Travel Club

I really enjoy traveling and always have. How about you? Do you enjoy traveling? If so, then VIP FarePass might be just the thing you've been looking for. This is a paid membership at a new travel club that you might be interested in. Have you ever heard of them? I hadn't until just recently but definitely think that it's worth sharing with others and passing along!! The membership gives you many things....$100 hotel voucher, discounts on other benefits like hotels, spas and more, as well as a companion air ticket!! So what does the club cost? Well...only $119 yearly!! What's great is that this is a company that works for the members. That means that they want to make your savings far outweigh the amount you spend on membership.

8 Months Old

Each month I say it...but where does the time go!?! Kaelyn is 8 months old today and it seems like it was just yesterday that we were taking her home from the hospital! She's growing and changing each day and we love the little personality that starting to shine through. She's such a curious and sweet little girl....what a joy she is in our lives!! Before we know it she'll be talking up a storm and walking all over the place....

Hammer With A Ruler

With all the work we're doing on our house recently...we've definitely come to appreciate the tools that are out there these days. What do you think about a hammer with a ruler?? It's something we could probably use right now with all this remodeling going on....

Where does the time go?

Wow...I was looking at the calendar today and can't believe it's already July!!! Where has the summer gone already? It's almost the 4th of July!! I can't believe how fast time goes. It seems like we were just in winter. Now summer is already almost half over. We really need to enjoy every nice, warm day we have here...because in the midwest you just never know when it's going to get cold again. Unfortunately the cold weather takes up much of our year!
