Have been off to a week long vacation at the Jersey shore. It was absolutely wonderful. We had the most perfect weather for the entire week. We had about 15 minutes worth of rain on Friday afternoon. The water was amazingly clear but there were some devilish rip tides to contend with. We were watching the grandchildren like hawks. One day, we watched our poor lifeguards make 22 rescues. I can't tell you how hard these kids work to keep us safe. By the end of that one day, the poor kids could barely pull their lifeguard stand up to the dunes. I know they won't see this but, kudos, you kids are amazing. (in case anyone reading this knows some of the lifeguards on LBI (Long Beach Island), NJ.

Now, for me, it's make to work. Have a clear head and some really wonderful ideas. Don't forget the Christmas In July Shop Hop starts Monday, 7/21. Find as many shopping bag logos as you can, one each on the participating Make Mine Pink boutiques. Many wonderful prizes for finding them, check this out at the www.makeminepink.com and then click on the shop hop logo.

Good luck to everyone, hope you win a prize!
