Giveaway Reminder, 4th of July, and other random ramblings

Hey everyone...we made it to Friday once again!  Woot, woot!  Go us!

*happy dance*

Don't forget to enter my Free Amazon Cash Giveaway...deadline is midnight, Sunday, July 4th to be entered.  You can find it by clicking the link above this post.  Good luck!

I also wanted to say Happy Independence Day to you all and take a moment to thank all of the military men/women and the brave families that support them.  This holiday reminds me above all others, the sacrifices made for the greater good.  Having grown up as a military brat in my early years, I have to admit I really don't remember too much about the naval life, except the really cool submarines and the neat looking white hat my cat loved to curl up and sleep in.  But I know we moved ALOT and I've lived in California, Virginia Beach, and South Carolina just to name a few.  I've also been around the military quite a bit in my adult years, having dated an Army man that was shipped off to the war in Iraq for awhile.  All I can say is, not fun, and wow.  I'm glad each and every day that I had the experiences I did so I can truly appreciate what these familes go through...the strength they have is amazing.  So thank you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  It's often a very thankless job.  Remember them all this holiday. 

As for me, I'll be looking forward to some of this:

But that's not how I'm kicking my three-day weekend off.  Because tonight I'll be hanging with some of my favorite ladies.  What do we have planned?  Oh, nothing big.  Just going to have margaritas before seeing a little movie you've probably never heard of. 


::claps hands over mouth and hides under desk:: 

Did I really squeal out loudly like a tween?????  I tried to hide it!  Stupid pictures get me every time.  Yes, we're going to see THAT movie and yes, I'm giddy with excitement.  Number one, these ladies rock and no matter what we choose to do, it's always a good time.  Number two, they have no problem being just as goofy as I am, so I'll be in super good company.  And yes, I will be sporting a vampire themed tee-shirt to said show.  I mean, you've gotta' have some fun in life, right?  I LIVE to be silly and it will be out in full force tonight.  Note:  consuming margaritas before hand only increases before mentioned silliness.

Okay, I need to change subject and try to calm myself down.  This is worse than watching a Red Sox game, my heart is pounding a bit in anticipation.

I'll probably unplug this weekend as we'll be traveling and hanging with the family for the holidays, but I promise to be back Monday, July 5th for the big drawing to announce the Amazon Cash Giveaway winners!

Happy and safe fourth to you all!
