    Hubby and I have a date night at a winery in Temecula CA on July 12th with 24 authors signing, appetizers, wine tasting and books! I am so happy because this will be our first date night out in years! Also it will be my first signing to go to! It will be hard to leave the 2 yo but we need this. Then our 7yo gets back from a trip to grandmas house around 919th of July, then she has 3 weeks before school starts and going to the beach is a must since she spent the summer in the desert lol so we will plan a fun beach trip and do all the back to school shopping. Would love to win this! Thank you for the chance!

I’ve got a few union and school commitments this summer, too! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

Part of Grandma’s love is reading and reviewing some great books!!! Such a fun contest here too!!

    I have a TON of yard work to do now that my ankle is *mostly* better. Then the 3rd week of August I’m going to New York. In between we’ll be doing a LOT of camping this year with the family and the dogs. If we can we might go up to the Porcupine Mountains in Northern Michigan and swing by Crystal Lake, then over to Mackinaw Island for a day. Then at the end of August we’ll be going to Vegas for our anniversary (a little late but better than never!)
