Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family this Coming Weekend

Who needs BlogHer, really, when I can stay home and ENJOY:

10. The most perfect weather for July, with temps hovering just around 90 degrees.

9. A full weekend playing with my brindle boxer, Tiger. He loves me so much!

8. A whole weekend without housework. I'm all caught up.

7. Couch time with my sweetie, Ollie. (see #1)

6. Hanging with friends of ours we haven't seen since last summer!

5. Quiet time in the country. (see #1)

4. Morning coffee while sitting on the deck in the country with my sweetie. (see #1)

3. Long nights, snuggled up with my sweetie. (see #1)

2. I am spending 4 days at the river with my SWEETIE. (see #1)

And, my Number 1 Reason why I am EXCITED to Stay Home with my Family this coming weekend:

My sweetie, Ollie, is coming home! Yay! I haven't see him in a month and will only see him one weekend a month for the next 9 months or so, until he completes this job in NEBRASKA. So, you can have your party at BlogHer because I have MY BABY! Which, by the way, I can give at LEAST 10 more reasons for staying home, but this is a site for family!

Please, leave me your comments. I am trying for a $100 Cozi sponsorship and it is based on comments received between now and July 27th. THANK YOU!
