Shooting Stars and birthday S'mores!

Conversation from Friday:
Mom - Vangie, take off your bathing suit, we aren't going swimming today.
Vangie - No, I want to keep it on.
Mom - Go take it off kiddo, we aren't going to the pool.
Vangie - I want to wear it.
Mom - Why?
Vangie - It keeps my tan in place.

Alrighty then, who am I to argue with such logic?

Check out my party earrings that I'm wearing today? And why am I wearing party earrings, because it's my birthday!

And what a great start to my day. I counted up my etsy sales from this weekend, 54. Yep, 54. My shop is almost sold out. Craziness. So today I am filling orders.

Tonight will be birthday s'mores!

I took the day off yesterday and we went swimming/wading in the Guadalupe River and had a little picnic.

Now tonight, if you live away from the city lights you can watch the Perseids Meteor Show. During it's peak you can spot hundreds of shooting stars. The best time to see them is pre-dawn. I'll wake up early tomorrow to see if I can spot any, but I live in the city so I doubt it.

One year Jess worked until 11pm on my birthday. When he got home he told me to bundle up the kids so we could go for a drive. (they were 1 & 3 at the time.) We drove an hour to South Haven and laid on the beach for hours watching the stars and talking. Best birthday ever.

Okay, I'm off to work quickly so I can have fun for the rest of the day!
