I’m so ready for Summer. Aren’t you?

Summer has a beat of its own and I’m chomping at the bits for some play time. Summer brings a much-needed slow pace and tranquility that SOOTHES and revitalise my soul. A nice break from the morning madness, lunch making and the afternoon carpool soccer mom routine.

In Texas, everything is bigger including the heat and June bugs.   When I’m not working training my loyal workout warriors I’m in a bathin suit slathered in Coppertone!  Sure this time of year comes with hot sunny days, lemonade stands, muggy nights and MOSQUITOS. But still, I can hardly wait!

Here are a few of my Summer loves ♥ that I simply can’t do without.  Want more check this out….Summer Lovin.

I can’t be the only person who slightly gags and utterly grosses out at the mere thought of a hair brush laying on top of the kitchen counter.

HEllo, it’s because they are out-of-place!!  These items don’t belong there!   A hairbrush, in my world, has no place around or near the kitchen area.  In my mind there is like a 10 to 12 foot unspoken, invisible radiant barrier that surrounds the kitchen /dining/ food area from certain toiletry items.  This force field is to never to be penetrated by a brush, comb, hair tie, rubber band, head band, hair spray, deodorant or anything that might contaminate the food area.  Also on…
