This week has finally ended!!! June too has come to an end! Is it me, or are these days flying by. I can't believe we're getting ready to start July!

I LOVE the month of July!!! Not only because there's a day dedicated to yours truly! But there's BBQ's, fireworks, lots of sunshine, visiting Mickey, and months closer to Football Season!

So much to look forward to the next coming weeks. Where do I start?! Let's see!

I have family in town this weekend. My niece's Pink Affair Grad Party unfortunately was postponed  but we have a fabulous weekend in store for her to make-up for it. Looking forward to spending some QT with my Honeybee. Going to see the other man in my life "Channing Tatum" in Magic Mike ::sighs::  (Good thing my Honey is not jealous and shares well.) Love you hunny! :p
The new Spider Man Movie comes out too!!!
Looking forward to turning a year older on Monday. Then spending the day at the Zoo with the girls on Wednesday, the FABULOUS 4-day week ahead. Housesitting this coming week equals of week of relaxation and waking up to an amazing view and watching the fireworks on the beach. Disney the following weekend, 12 days and counting!!! My first Air Balloon Experience. ::squee:: A Wine-Tasting Event the next weekend followed by lunch with 2 of my Besties. And putting the finishing touches on my Best Friend's Baby Shower. 

Whew! Think I'm going to need a vacay and an EXTRA LARGE Margarita at the end of July! :)

TGIF! As my baby cousin Ari would dance & sing to this morning...
"It's the Weekend...Party Party!" 
She's only 3 and she's already ready to party the weekends, boy my cousin's are going to be introuble!!!
Isn't she the cutest?!

I'm so excited to get this weekend started. This is the first weekend in 16 weeks since I've had a FREE Saturday, oh how my pillows are going to love the extra cuddle time I have in store for them. I'm looking forward to spending the day outdoors and enjoying the sun! I'm going to take my honeybee on his first Airboat tour of  the Everglades and the Wildlife Exhibit.
 I took my nieces a few months ago, and WE loved it!
Honestly, I think I'm more excited about it than he is. :)

And we recently discovered a mini water park near my house, so I'm going to surprise my nieces with a day trip to the water park.  
I'll tell you all about it over the weekend.

So I'm participating in a few Blog Gift Swaps this Summer, and yesterday I received my
"Soak up the Sun Blog Swap Buddy" from Meg. Thanks Meg!!!
I was partnered up with the beautiful Andi over at Just Another Smith she blogs about her style and her life's random moments. I've spent the night catching up on her posts and she's totally the cutest!

Anywho, I can't wait to go shopping for her this weekend!!!

Other than shopping I'm looking forward to spending some time with my HoneyBee...The last few weeks I've spent it with my nose in the books and kind of neglected him a bit, so I'm ready to spend some QT with him( & now that Daddy has finally met him, I can introduce you to the man who has filled my life with endless smiles and laughter.)

Me & My HoneyBee
I'll write up another post about my HoneyBee, how we met, and meeting the Parentals soon.
I Promise!

Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine!

First Day of Summer...

Happy First Day of Summer!!!! Although today we woke up to the yuckiest weather, and it's supposed to rain again tomorrow. (I guess better it rains during the week than weekend right?!) 
 I'm so excited for this summer...I have a never ending bucket list of things I'd like to do outdoors. So mother-nature if you're reading this, can we have a kick @ss summer?! Puuuuuhhhhllllleeeeaaasseeee!

I can't remember the last time I went to the beach. Maybe 2 years or so... Crazy I know, considering I live in Miami where it's practically summer all year long. I used to live 2 miles from Clearwater Beach and in the 2 years that I lived there I only went once. Sad, I know. :(

So for next 14 weeks I plan on enjoying the outdoors, having picnics, flying kites, blowing bubbles, cooking bbq's and visiting the beach as much as possible. I will no longer be whiter than white and Banana Boat's Dark Tanning Oil will become my best friend.

This stuff is Aaaaammmmmaaaazzzzziiiiinnnngggggg!!!!

Hoping your Summer is just as Fabulous as Mine will be!

What do you have planned for this summer?

Friday's Letters


Dear Car,
Why is it that everytime I replace one thing something else needs to be replaced weeks later, couldn't you just fall apart the same day? This is getting a bit aggravating.

Dear Class,
Oh how I'm NOT going to miss you! Counting down the hours till I kiss you goodbye and kiss my pillows hello!!! It's been fun!

Dear Summer,
I have a long bucket list of things I'd like to accomplish outdoors while you're here. Please be nice to me and give us pretty sun-filled weekends.

Dear Honeybee,
Thank you for being so understanding and supportive this week. I miss you terribly! Hope we get to hangout this weekend. P.S. Totally loved my wake-up call this morning! I haven't stopped smiling since. :)

Blog Star: Hi I'm Libby

Hi There... I'm Libby

A little About Me:: I live in South Florida in a little town called Homestead a few miles north of the Florida Keys, you find me yet? I was born in NJ and have lived my whole life in FL. I'm the oldest of 3, have 4 beautiful nieces (of which 2 share their everyday life with me) and in September I will adopt a little nephew named Ethan (My bestfriend is going to be a mommy, just thought I'd add that so there are no confusions) you can read a little more about him HERE .

A Few Things that I LOVE: First off I love being an Auntie...(I love kids and would've loved to have a ton of nieces and nephews unfortunately, my siblings both stopped having babies after 2...I guess all my friend's children can make up for the rest.) Other things: I love to travel, scrapbook, photography, baking, football season, (It's ALL about the Cowboys!!!) fruity drinks, butterflies, Disney World, daisies, and last but not least, my Pandora bracelet.

So I can no longer count myself as a new blogger as I've just realized that I have over 40 posts...but I can say that I am a new follower to many of you fine writers out there and look forward to finding, reading and following some more. My blog for the most part you'll find ramblings about my family, nieces, travels, concerts, movies, new places, cuisines, attempting to eat and live healthy, my bestfriends, my NKOTB addiction you can read more about that HERE and HERE (Yikes, I think it's time I seek some NK Rehab) my obsessions with bucket lists, and anything else random that pops in my head. Oh yeah, and once the Pops has met my HoneyBee, you'll read about him too. :)

So stay a while, introduce yourself, and let's become friends!
