Wonderful, wet, wild, winning Wednesday!

Well, today was fun. Lil' J and I started out with a picnic at the marina consisting of pepperoni roll (I wanted PB+J, Lil' J wanted pepperoni...clearly she won), rosa maria salad, carrots, pears, yogurt, cheese(for her, not me...I'm not much of a cheese fan), and sour cream and onion chips. After lunch we blew bubbles and sat down on the dock for a while before playing frisbee (yes, I tossed with my left hand - I'm a righty! - and took pics with my right...what can I say? Mad skills.). When that got old we headed over to her friend B Man's house for some wet and wild fun. The kids had a blast on the slip 'n slide...I'm sure it felt great as the temp was in the 80's and humidity was high. I was tempted to jump in myself a few times, but managed to restrain myself. After 4 hours of water fun we headed home...and Lil' J promptly passed out, allowing me to enjoy half an hour of blissful silence before her mom got home.

In other news...I'm gonna be honest here, I'm a little dismayed at the lack of participation in Win-It Wednesday...but thanks to the 2 people who played along! The winner is - drumroll please! - Lissa, with her suggestion of "Orange Blossom Delight." The bracelet's yours. :) Cassie, thanks for joining in on the fun...feel free to join my list of followers if you'd like to participare in future giveaways.


  1. I tried to participate but I had a few problems...

    1. I don't have a blog, only Twitter
    2. This dumb site wouldn't let me comment!!!

    Argh... sometimes I hate blogger.

  2. P.S. I had a really cute name picked out too... Marigold Mystique. LOL

  3. Oh... and I had even posted this to my twitter... HAHA

    And see now that I bitch about commenting... yeah it lets me! ARGH!!!

  4. Hmmmmm well I liked the idea of using Mister Linky to link to other people's blogs (OK, I stole the idea from someone else's blog...) but maybe next time I'll do something different. I'm already formulating my plan for next month. :) I don't know why Blogger wouldn't let you post, but it does that to me sometimes too. Grrrrrr.

  5. Yeah it does that to me too! Sorry I've been MIA, I've been meaning to play your Win it Wednesday but as you can see on my own blog, I haven't been up on the blogging world as much as I would like! If it were a perfect world, I would blog every day. But by the time I get the kids in bed, I am one tired mama.
