I think I might give the casino a break and focus on other things such as another vacation before school starts which isn’t to far away. My oldest will be going back to pre-K because he’s only four and was three when he started last year.

I have been looking on childrensplace.com for shirts for the boys since their having an 80% sale and everyone knows I love sales.the-childrens-place-logoRight now I am about to post a few reviews and a NEW GIVEAWAY and also purchase the boys some sand for their sandbox.

So many colors to chose from….

LOVE & HIP HOP + MIMI & NIKKO SEX TAPE

love&hiphopI must admit I do tune into Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and have done so since day one. If I can’t watch the Monday episode I usually DVR it but these last few episodes have been crazy especially due to Mimi and Nikko Sex tape.

Usually I don’t blog about this type of stuff however Mimi Faust is getting a lot of heat about her sex tape with boyfriend Nikko which was supposedly accidentally leaked (I believe Nikko leaked it & Mimi knew about it because this isn’t an amateur sex tape from what little clips I have seen it obvious that it’s a professional porn tape).

Mimi Faust’s sex tape has become more popular than Kim Kardashian’s, and Vivid Entertainment is ready to sue anyone who’s trying to steal it on the Internet. That is major.

What are your insights on Mimi’s decision to release the sex tape especially having a young daughter? Do you think boyfriend Nikko had something to do with it being leaked? Let me know by commenting?

2. Favorite Makeup 

When I went out of town of course I had to do some shopping and discovered a new lip product called Lip Addyct. They had these beautiful lip paint colors which I wanted all of them and finally settled for these four.

They look awesome on me. Pictures of me wearing these colors coming soon…

I took the boys to the fair Thursday and they had fun. I enjoyed how my oldest son looked out for his little brother on every ride they went on.

IMG_3497

The boys were intrigued by this man who posed as a Copper Statue.IMG_35464. Swapping

The past 3 days I have signed up with two swapping websites and have traded a lot of items in such a short period of time. My favorite swap was this wooden tie up shoe for the boys. I wish there were two, one for each child because they do not like sharing. I’m going to teach both boys how to properly tie up their shoes (wish me luck). lol

tieupshoe5. It’s Friday

Today I am going to pull out the boys pool and sandbox (first I have to go buy the blue sand) so I can enjoy my babies playing at home, outdoors for once! This Michigan weather has been seriously preventing outdoors time.

THURSDAY THOUGHTS + GRANDPA & THE BOYS

button

Today I am linking up with Jen at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.

Before I began please Check out my GIVEAWAY!!! :)

Time is going by fast I can’t believe it’s almost the middle of July. Hopefully today I can take the boys to the carnival because they haven’t been anywhere in three days due to Michigan’s strange weather.

On vacation the boys got a chance to visit their Grandpa after almost 2 years and the crazy part of it is that my oldest son remembers him. That little boy has a great memory especially when it comes to learning, people names and faces. Both of my boys are smart! My oldest keeps saying he wants to go over to his Grandpa’s house but only if he truly knew that Grandpa don’t live around the corner but too many miles away. :(  However I did get pictures of the three. :)

I love this picture and can’t wait to print all of them out, to add them to the boys baby books (which I’m behind on).

Hopefully Grandpa and the boys can see one another very soon.

Grandpa and his Boys!
