let me explain.
i have the summer month book choice.
we don't meet in june or july, 
so i had to announce the summer book yesterday at lunch.
instead of yelling out a title and everyone clicking away on their phones,
i decided to add a little fun.
each gal got a magnet to hang on their refridge.
a mini photo of the book, a little sand and a pair of flip flops 
all at home in a mini clear bag !
here's to summer reading !

monday lunch book club.
this was one of those books you need to keep in the freezer.
lots of talk about this book.
party treats -
 a single strand of firefly lights and a tube of red lipstick for each gal.
have to read the book to understand this favor.
perfect afternoon !
hard to go back to work after this luncheon.
(see above blender !)

what do you do when nathan arrives home from college 
and states he found a new family fun game ?
you click on amazon prime and it arrives the next day !
we had a total riot playing this game tonight.
so much fun, we played a second round.
not often you can find a treat that pulls all 
3 boys away from their games and devices for a couple hours.
today's everyday memory.
cheers !
