It’s 1 July… What Does That Mean?

The answer… Lots of things!

First, don’t be surprised… But, I actually cooked dinner! I pounded out some chicken breasts and then stuffed them with spinach, goat cheese and sundried tomatoes! Then, I rolled them up and baked them in the oven. It was so good, quick and easy! Definitely repeating this dinner item!


Today is Canada Day! I actually have several Canadian readers out there and Lauren says, “Happy Canada Day” to you! She loved her flag that I put on her hand so that all of my readers could enjoy it today! Please excuse the messy family room… I do have an almost three year old though… And small flat! πŸ™‚


Now on to what 1 July means to me… It’s the beginning of MY birthday month!! πŸ™‚

You see, it used to be only my birthday month… However, I now have to share it with someone… Lauren! πŸ™‚ She was born four weeks early just so that we could share the same birthday month. It was close to being the same birthday though as she was born three days before my birthday!

I told her that it was ‘our’ birthday month today this morning. She quickly replied with, “No, mummy. It is MY birthday month!” So, there you have it… I can only assume this is how July will be for the rest of my life! Just as I was wrapped up in my ‘self pity’ an email came through! Tory Burch recognised my birthday month! πŸ™‚


Isn’t it fabulous?! I can’t wait to spend it! πŸ™‚

There are lots of other exciting things going on this month! Stay tuned for all of the excitement… Lauren and Mummy’s 2nd Annual Holiday, birthday celebrations, trip to Texas and finally… A trip to Maui! πŸ™‚

I hope everyone is doing well and had a fabulous weekend! πŸ™‚

What do you have planned for July?
