Id imagine, if you reside in the USA, your today is more about outdoors and BBQs than ‘net surfing and blog reading.
Still, since I spend last night accidentally wandering down memory lane, I
felt compelled to drag you down the path with me I wanted to share a little ‘what we’re up to’ & memory musings with you anyway.
I love our neighborhood.
Myriad reasons I wont bore you with (and yeah. the Princess is still walking).
The specific reason Im thinking of today is our neighborhood 4th of July celebration.
It truly gets all 1950s up in here.
Kids climb on their scooters, trikes and bikes.
It’s where most of them have their first “real” (jaw-dropping) parade experience (if by parade you mean random cars driving down the boulevard honking & hurling candy from the windows—which I do.).
Kids LINE the streets & cheer (The Tornado’s friend doesnt always dress like that. I failed to get parental permission to post pic):
One year it POURED (oh how I loved that year) & we had fun anyway.
Typically, like this year, it is
hot as the proverbial Mo’ Fo’ it is warm outside.
Which can make some of us furrow her brow.
Until the parade is over & the real PARTY begins.
I love our neighborhood (and shall be instagram‘ing more pics today than you’d ever wanna see).
Before Im off and
sweating frolicking, however, I wanted to share a contest with you and NEWS ABOUT MY FITBLOGGIN SPONSOR THIS YEAR.
My sponsor? The host of the contest? None other than the DA ACTIVE company featured in the video snippet below.
The contest is simple and born out of their wanting to know what *we* want in our apparel.
(which is something I adore. the fact that are asking US what we want instead of trying to TELL us what we like.)
Answer seven *short* questions and POOF! yer entered to win.
And you can head out.
As I am.
To giggle, grill, get silly, and yeah SWEAT.
HAPPY 4th of July.
Happy. Happy. Happy.
