Anyone still there? My apologies for being to absent from this little blog. Summer is seriously cramping my blogging style. This is because:

#1: Who the heck wants to sit in front of the computer, when it is freakin' gorgeous outside?!

#2: I could blog on my iPhone, but I'm too busy using it to play Words With Friends

Nevertheless, I'll try to be more consistent with my blogging over the next couple of weeks. Of course, I do have several beach trips and other adventures planned with my hottie of a husband... I make no promises! ;)

Here are a few articles of clothing, shoes, & accessories I've been drooling over:

Oh, and I ended up buying that periwinkle bikini from Target! The color is unlike anything I currently have, and - miracle of miracles - the bottoms actually cover my ghetto bootie!

Brand Names

With summer rapidly approaching {and summer weather already here ~ yay!}, I feel like we're spending more and more on groceries. Watermelon, corn on the cob, strawberries for shortcake ~ it all seems to add up! What doesn't help is that I am a notorious over-spender when it comes to groceries. So, my husband and I decided that he would do the grocery shopping from now on. That is fine with me because I despise grocery shopping! Plus, he always manages to spend half as much time and save twice as much money as I do. However, we can't compromise on are certain brand name items. Although there are TONS of things we have no problem buying generic, here are a few of our must-have brand name products:

Coca Cola

French's Mustard

Hellmann's Mayonnaise

A1 Steak Sauce

Heinz Ketchup

Apparently, we are big fans of expensive condiments!

What are some Brand Name items you just can't live without?

To Do

Now that the heat has finally let up, I can finally work on a project that's been on my kind for months! Here is my To Do list for today:

:: sand antique table
:: paint antique table
:: run, then empty dishwasher
:: fold & put away laundry
:: bake banana bread
:: unpack camping bag
:: buy groceries for Sunday's bball party
:: clean the master closet
:: bake chocolate chip cookies
:: redbox a new movie

OK, so that last one isn't a chore, but it is still something I want to do!

Do you have any projects up your sleeves for this lovely Saturday?
