miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1.  So...I had a bunch of pictures that I was going to take yesterday & share with you.  When I got to my destination I realized that my memory card was still in my laptop.  Note:  Check for memory card before leaving the house.  Sigh.

2.  Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day...did you get your ice cream?  Rondell, the kids & I went to one of our favorite ice cream places and enjoyed a scoop for $1.41 (which is a pretty good deal for this place).  I got cookies & cream, Caleb got chocolate, Jamison got vanilla with butterscotch & Rondell got two scoops of black cherry...yum!  Caleb enjoyed his ice cream so much that he wore it all over...we had to strip him down just to put him in the car :)

3.  Where is July going?  This summer seems to be flying by and I am amazed.  Before I know it I'll be sending my big kid off to 3rd grade and my baby off to pre-school (sniff).  Until then we plan on having more fun days...going to the pool, spray park, library, etc.  We're also gearing up for our trip to the Indianapolis Zoo!

4.  I could use a good exfoliator...any suggestions?

***  Just thought since I couldn't share the pictures I wanted to take I'd share a few of my favs!

Happy Monday :)

I celebrated Ice Cream day with my daily bowl of ice cream, ha! I really, really, really need to kick my ice cream's not helping that I found the best hot fudge that tastes just like McDonald's hot fudge to me...which I love!

Can't wait to see your pictures :)

Bummer on not having your memory card :-(. That would be devastating for me! Ha!

I didn't know about ice cream day or I would've been out there eating a scoop or two! Sounds like you all got some yummy choices!

We are planning on a zoo trip too before school starts!!! When are you headed there? You know that's in our territory! It's been so hot but we love going! They have a little spray park area there that the kids really enjoy!

I really hate that summer is almost over ...I've already started the countdown...29 days :-(

Oh this Summer if flying by and these past few weeks have been going faster than normal. I am not looking forward to getting the kids back to school and going back to work.

We didn't celebrate National Icecream Day....I didn't even know it was until I was watching QVC and that's what they were talking about on their kitchen show.

Ice cream? I had NO idea. Drat. I completely missed out. Shoot. :o(

No worries, I love looking at your (old but good) pictures! I'm already missing the beach and it has just been a couple weeks. [sigh]
And I didn't realize we were to get our ice cream yesterday. Well, the kids made up for it today at the pool. ;)

Hi Kelli!
Great pictures.
I just bought a cleansing exfoliator by philosophy at Ulta and I like it. It isn't super abrasive but that is what I wanted. I also have been using one for my body in the shower from bath and body works. Theirs is amazing. Most recently I had the Hawaiin coconut scent and it would make me feel like I was in Hawaii. ;)

I did not get my ice cream. I didn't even know that. Bummer. I am baffled as to where July went too. Already buying school supplies. It just does not seem right. Love the pictures!
