Sunshine Monday: Summer Fun List

Happy Summer All! I know I am  a little late with that, but I feel like it is officially summer here in Vegas. I mean real Summer here is when it is over 100 degrees and you have to be in the water for fear of melting. Yeah baby that is summer in Vegas. Well we have been enjoying ourselves. We are officially out of school for summer and I want to enjoy it. I was inspired by a friend, who is doing a fun 79 Days of Summer, and I wanted to join in. I knew all my activities had to be cheaper than cheap, things are real tight right now. Last week I sat down and wrote everything out and I was so thankful how it all came together. We did a Family Home Evening to tell Miss Priss and bubba about it and they got so excited. We put our list up in the living room and every time we do something off the list, we cross it off. It is fun to know each day we have something exciting to look forward to. Here is what we have planned,

Oh and before you go a few odd ends...

 It seems like I got a great response from sharing my Simply Fancy updo last week. It has really inspired me to share more hair tips and styles. I have now made a page just for Hair, on the sidebar. Check it out.

Also today I start being a contributor to Women Who do it All. This means every Monday I will be sharing a craft over there.Check me out over there today. I am sharing how I made these...


Should be awesome. Come on over and give me some comment love...

Happy Monday!
