one of my favorite things about summer is mangos!
and i am a very lucky girl because i have a mango tree in my front yard and backyard:)
we've been collecting bags full of mangos everyday.
let me know if anyone wants some mangos!

p.s. they make the yummiest smoothies.

beach days are my favorite

sister and i took our nieces and nephew to the beach for the first time. they loved it and it was really cute watching them take in everything for the first time.

meagan did not like the sand at first and refused to walk in it but she loved it by the end

it will be a zoo, good thing i like zoos

so my big sister decided to drop off my 2 nieces and nephew for the week.
i am very happy about this because since they live in texas and i don't get to spend nearly enough time with them.
the first day here they were already going crazy in the pool.

and they were spent by the end of the day.

reading is food for the brain

i love reading so spending a quiet evening at barnes and noble is one of my favorite things to do.

i've been wanting to get a few new books for some summer reading and my friends gave me so many good recommendations. i was definitely having trouble deciding which ones to buy.

i ended up buying "educating esme" by esme raji codell, "wuthering heights" by emily bronte and "lady in waiting" by jackie kendall and debby jones.

i'll let you know how great they are!

the rain finally decided to go away for a little bit and i was able to enjoy the beach and it was glorious. it was a great day to go because it wasn't too crowded and the water was the perfect temperature.
my lovely friends were great company and it made my day perfection.
