Hello Monday – 7/16/18

Hello Monday! Happy Amazon Prime Day!! Are you ready?


I already snagged one deal.  Kindle Unlimited is available for 3 months for 99 cents! I can’t wait to read some new books on my Kindle Paperwhite. I am not sure I could function without Amazon Prime these days.  I just love clicking on something and knowing that it will be here in 2 days. Now, some items haven’t been making it in 2 days, but Amazon’s customer service team has been so helpful and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I am linking up with the Hello Monday girls this morning to share our weekend.


We had a great Friday! Jack had a half day of basketball camp with his buddies and Luke went to the swim team party. This gave me a little over an hour to myself. I had a great run and dashed to the grocery store to pick up some snacks for the day/evening at the pool.


Luke and his buddies built a fort!

I decided we were pulling an “all day-er” at the pool because we had a water slip and slide party from 4-7 pm.  Around 1 o’clock, Jeff dropped the campers off at the pool and our umbrella looked like this:


So many shoes, water bottles, and snacks.


They boys had a great time swimming and playing at the pool.  Then we set up for the party. I ran 3 slip-n-slides and while Kourtni ran the sprinkler, games, and water balloon area.  The pool was PACKED!! The Dominos pizza delivery car was at the pool every 5 minutes because I’m pretty sure everyone there decided it was a great night for pizza by the pool.


My kiddos and I crashed when we got home around 730.

We were up early the next morning for an away swim meet.  I didn’t take any pictures (#fail) but it was fun! The boys swam really well! It was a LOOONNG meet and everyone was hungry. I wanted to try Shake Shack and we were near one. We headed right over and had a DELICIOUS lunch! The burger, fries, and shakes were so yummy!


They boys went to my parents to spend the night on Saturday night. They had a yummy dinner at the driving range and ice cream afterwards.  Jeff and I were heading to Mexican night at the pool.  We had so much fun!! The food was delicious, the margaritas were so tasty, and the company was great!



Ready for a ma-rockin good time!


Kourtni did a great job planning this fun night!



Everyone smile!!

I ran up to the pool on Sunday morning to see if we needed to finish cleaning up before going to get the boys.


The maracas came home with me!

I cannot believe that I did not spend any daytime at the pool on a summer weekend that we were in town!! It’s ok though, we had a great weekend!

This is our last week of swim team practice. AAAGGGHHH! I can’t believe summer is flying by so fast!  I’ll be packing and preparing for the beach or soaking up some time at the pool with the boys and our friends.  I’m reading Beach House Reunion by Mary Alice Monroe to finish off my Summer Beach Books list.

I hope you have a great week full of sunshine and books!
