Wow that looks like an AWESOME family gathering. And that pic of your nephew is so cute :)

Nothing better than some kind of tea and a good read, is there? Thanks for linking up with us for these Ten Things of lovelywonderfulsparklyglitteryness

The pool looks wonderful! Jealous!

Dyanne @ I Want Backsies said...

The Canadian flag is sooooo pretty!

I do love sweet tea, just without lemon, please.

I'm going to guess that Canadian Living magazine is pretty much the same as Southern Living or Midwestern Living (and I'm sure there are more incarnations). Full of recipes and decorating ideas and local points of interest?

What a great family gathering! Yay for good food plus family and friends to share it with.

And I LOVE Big Bang Theory! Sing with me, "Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur...."

Looks like a great time was had by all...Happy Canada Day!

One other thing: please explain why Big Bang theory is so amazing...you are not the first person to tell me that it's great, but I am just not seeing it. Any insight would be most helpful!

Have a lovely day!

I haven't seen Big Bang Theory but I keep hearing about it. Perhaps it's time to cave in and become addicted. Love the family gathering photo! And the pool looks delicious.

Hi Ladies, thank you for leaving such sweet comments on my blog:) Yes, Canadian Living is similar to Southern Living (I think), filled with recipes and decorating tips. It also has some articles, health, kids, family, etc. I have know idea why I like BBT:) I had already seen a few eps, and I thought they were funny. I also wanted something that I could become addicted to. I also like the fact that it is so different that (a)your usual show, and (b)how I live my life. I am SO not a nerd (at least like them), but I can appreciate their nerdiness. I love SOFT KITTY...:)

What a great list!

That pool looks awesome! Would like to have one, too!

I am a big fan of the Big Bang Theory, too!

And I love your new top! I did not know that Avon sells clothing, too?

(liked the tree house back behind the pool...)

lol

very sizable family gatherings... haven't been to one of that scale since I can remember, but I see them as I drive through the local neighborhoods... the cars parked along the street, the smoke of the grills and the badminton nets.
Good Post.

(I am one of those people who love the heat that Summer brings...)

Kristi said...

Your family gathering looks like a lot of fun!

Musings of a Childless Mama said...

Thank you, Kristi:) Yes, our family get-togethers are always a fun time. We are going back there this wknd.

Sky-Ann @ The Little Button said...

Oh I love that pool. Next year I think I need to get one. I think I would be in it all day! A pool and a glass of that ice tea looks wonderful.

I love Instagram too and just started an account. Will go check out yours now.

Love the family photos, really nice.
