I originally slated this post as part of my 3.6.5. series that fell victim to life and the idea that I needed more time with the family on my day off than blogging…craziness.  I still stand by my decision.  Thursdays being open also leaves more room for guest bloggers and random I can’t help myself posts.  Love that! Long story short, I’m guest posting today over on Like a Bird.

SSBB: Summer Threads

Splish Splash Blog Bash

Today it’s all about summer clothes.  I’m a dedicated jeans wearer.  I don’t do shorts.  I choose to spare everyone from the whitest legs in existence.  That being said, I’m okay with dresses, because they come down to my knees (no minis for me) and my calves aren’t too bad looking.   Today I’m sharing a whole bunch of clothes I wish I had.  Some of them can be found on

SSBB: Summer Reads

Splish Splash Blog Bash

I love to read.  If I didn’t have the Things running around distracting me in the mornings, I could probably finish a book every 2 to 3 days – but then I’d ignore the blog, you’d miss me, and I’d had this nagging feeling that something was off.  So I read intermittently. For today’s round of the Splish Splash Blog Bash I’m sharing some of my favorite summer books.  Books I
