Back at Saturday again folks. Seems like I blinked on Monday and somehow here we are! Great week behind us, but now it is time for another weekend.
Last weekend, it was a bit of a rainout. Saturday actually started out at 70 degrees, warm and sunny. I actually let it slip that it was a beautiful day at 9 am. Well, just like clockwork once I said it the weather changed within an hour and by midday, it was overcast, breezy and the temperature fell to about 10 degrees. By 6 pm, it was rainy and downright nasty. And guess what? This lasted into Sunday and it actually rained all day, too.
But finally the weather did improve and by Tuesday, we experienced our first very 80 degree day of 2013 here in NY.Finally 80 Degree Weather!!
Now, I am so just hoping that this weekend, which just so happens to be Memorial Day Weekend will be just as nice with 80 degree temperatures. Hey, a girl can dream!!
That is right, we finally made it to the unofficial start of summer with Memorial Day Weekend kicking it off and for all you fans of wearing white, it is finally permitted and allowed!!
And for all you summertime smoothly drinkers, please click here for my bi-weekly contributing posts on The Mommy Blog Hoppers for some delicious recipes to tempt your taste buds. and for those, who love Jamba Juice Smoothies, to celebrate Memorial Day, they are running a BOGO promotion that is you buy one smoothie, you get one free. Click here for the coupon (http://cmp.ly/2/WzIkwQ).
However, I cannot start celebrating until dance class is over for both my girls this weekend. See, because of the hurricane back at the end of last year and the blizzard this past winter, we have dance class to make up for those missed classes.
However, Emma has been battling a fever again this past week, so we will see if she will be up to going to dance class. Seriously need my kids to be well for a longer stretch and say some prayers for me on this.
By the way, their recital is June 9th, so for the next few weeks they will also be practicing at their Saturday morning sessions to gear up for it.
But now onto this week’s recap for those who are catching up or missed a moment of it and some exciting offers, as well!!
On Monday, I actually offered a wonderful giveaway for the upcoming Father’s Day with Datevitation with personalized love coupons. If you haven’t already seen it or want to enter the Rafflecopter Giveaway, click here.
On Tuesday, I shared some of my vulnerabilities and confessed that I am indeed not perfect. Yes, I do make my fair share of mistakes and click here to find out how I deal with this
On Wednesday, I decided I would love to share some of my favorites pictures of Emma from her first swim class experience to kick off the upcoming Memorial Day weekend in true fashion . To see this, go here.
On Thursday, I divulged how a divine intervention brought me the nicest surprise from the UPS man and for more on this click here.
On Friday, yet another Finish the Sentence Friday linkup went live with the sentence to finish being, “I Blog Because…”. To linkup if you haven’t or just to find out why I do blog, as well as why others would do too, click here.
And now that another Saturday is indeed upon us, I hope you too have a wonderful, fun weekend. I know that is a loaded sentence and sentiment if you are a mom. I plan on enjoying as much of this one as I can with Kevin and the girls. The weather is indeed getting nicer and hope to be outdoors as much as possible for this glorious holiday weekend.
Special Thank You!!
I also would like to extend a very special thank you to Autumn Rennie from Four Little Thiiiings for bestowing on me the Liebster Award.

Thanks again Autumn and I am truly honored and humbled by this!!
