Hello! Happy Sunday!
I hope you all are having a relaxing day. I am actually working today. As you may or may not know, on occasion, I do product demonstrations and/or pass out samples at local stores. So, today, I’m at a grand opening passing out food. I really hope that’s the only thing passing out, since it’s supposed to be 90 degrees, and I have to wear a long sleeve shirt, black pants, an apron, and probably a hat. Ugh.
Hey! Did you check out my post yesterday? I tried my hand at Vlogging. What’s Vlogging? It’s a video blog. I had fun taping it, and my husband was a good sport filming it. Hopefully, I’ll do some more in the near future. In case you missed it, you can see it HERE.
But, enough about me. On to what I’ve got coming up this week…
Monday just wouldn’t be the same without another amazing story featuring a remarkable Micro Preemie. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by on a Monday, please take a look at some of the remarkable stories HERE and HERE. Then, come back tomorrow to meet a new family.
Tuesday, I’ve got a great giveaway for you. If you want a hint as to what I’m giving away, just take a look at this post HERE.
Wednesday, we’re talking Tumbling/Gymnastics Lessons. These are our second lessons of the summer. We had a great time with Swimming Lessons, but this is just a whole other thing. You won’t want to miss this post.
Thursday, I’m going to share the rest of our Chicago Trip with you. In case you missed it, we went to the Shedd Aquarium. I’m going to pick up where I left off. If you want to read part 1 just click HERE or on the picture below.
Friday, I’m back with First Born Fridays. I’m so sorry I missed last Friday, but with the #HomeMattersParty Linky Party, and just getting back from Chicago, I just ran out of time. So, this week, I’ll tell you all about the second year.
Plus, this will be my third week of co-hosting the #HomeMattersParty Linky Party. If you’re not familiar with a Linky Party, it’s a great place where you can read all about home improvement, recipes, parenting advice, and all matters of the home from other great blogs and bloggers. You also have the opportunity to submit one of your own posts. I, along with all of the other co-hosts, read each entry, and nominate our favorite posts for the next week. If you’re a blogger, it’s a great opportunity to get your blog/blog post in front of tons of new readers. We had over 500 links last week.
If you’re not a writer/blogger, no worries. You can still come to the party and read all the awesome posts. The party is open until Wednesday, so you can still come visit and/or link up right HERE or click the picture below.
Finally, Saturday will be looking at going back-to-school…or in our case going to school for the first time. I’m going to tell you how we’re getting prepared, and share a few of our favorite products with you.
Thank you again to everyone who comes to the blog every day, or a couple of times a week, or even once a week. I really appreciate all the comments and support.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, and we’ll see you soon!

You did a great job on your vlog! I love that you and your family have great experiences together, like going to the Shedd- I think that’s .a really important part of growing up (plus, I still love going there).
Thank you so much!
Amie Gould says
Love you sneak peeks!
You certainly have a busy week ahead Shann! I wish I could plan my week out like this. I’ve tried but I always end up changing it around :).
I usually work on Sunday too but we just had a dinner for our daughter who is leaving for college next week. Now that everyone has gone and the kitchen is clean, I can get a little work done :).
Hope you’re having a great Sunday!
Hope you had a great dinner with your daughter! Thanks Cori!
Hope you made it through the heat today. Maybe a squeeze in a beach day this week too.
I did! We did get a pool day on Saturday, which was a lot of fun.

Sounds like you have a full week coming up! I look forward to sharing it with you!
Thank you! Me too!
busy, busy, busy! You have to much going on, I bet you’re just beyond exhausted. Can’t wait to join the giveaway.
I think I’m actually getting used to it! Thanks for stopping by and glad you will be joining the giveaway. 🙂
I never thought about a sneak peek of the week to come. A nice change instead of a week in review.

I love how much work and effort you put into your blog Shann. You are so organized. I’m making the leap into vlogging this Fall so I love that you had fun making your first vlog. Makes me a bit more enthusiastic about it. Looking forward to reading your Premie story this week!
Thank you so much Yanique. Your comments really mean a lot to me.

Thank you so much!

I grew up a few hours from Chicago. I love Shedd aquarium. Now I live in Salt Lake City. ..we have an aquarium here and it’s nice, but it is nothing compared to Shedd. I love the sea otters best!
Yes! They are so cute!
Hope all goes well with your demo. How exciting that school is starting up and the first year! Best wishes.
Thank you Jane!
