M.I.A.

I didn't intend to go M.I.A this week but it happened all on it's own.

We've been busy spending some afternoons poolside.

Playing and making up for lost time with some friends before we head out of town.

Some friends of mine and I went out to PF Changs {my favorite!} the other night for dinner and spent hours gabbing and laughing and chatting. I wish there was a way I could carve out a girls night out weekly.

Yesterday, my littles and I headed to to a luncheon for bloggers put on by Noodles and Company. We love Noodles and enjoyed sampling their new sandwich menu.

My fave the new spicy chicken ceaser. Their fave, the meatball sandwich. Go figure!

H also enjoyed making several noodle necklaces which are now thrown about my car.

We've been packing and making lists and doing laundry and picking up things here and there for our big vacation coming soon. I really, truly can't wait to be on the road and on our way.

And I've spent several hours the last few days very frustrated about my lack of internet connection here on my home computer. I am hoping the problem is fixed but a part of me worries I am on borrowed time even this afternoon, so forgive me if I don't send an email back right away or visit other blogs right now. I'm pretty swamped with life.

Last night, as is the tradition, we went downtown for the Minneapolis Aquatennial and had a blast of course. But I have to say that my favorite part of the parade has nothing to do with the parade at all, it's the joy that comes from buying an ice cream treat from the street vendor at 10pm at night for our wide-awake littles and watching the treats melt as they lick. E's hands were still blue this morning.

Nothing a good bath this morning couldn't take care of.

How's your week going?

My new friends at Noodles gave me some coupons for a giveaway. So leave me a comment and tell me something. Whatever you feel like saying today.

I'll choose two winners Saturday night at 8pm. Each winner will win two coupons for a free sandwich from Noodles so you can bring a friend, a spouse, a child!

And before I forget, the winner from last weeks Safety Tat giveaway is: Comment #5 darcie.

Disclosure: I was not paid or compensated for attending Noodles and Company's luncheon. They did feed myself and my kids lunch and gave me a goody bag including some coupons for the future. The coupons I am giving away were given to me by them.

Sounds like you have a lovely trip planned ahead. And I'm more than a little jealous of the chance to put your feet up on the kiddie pool - looks so fun! :)

Wow!! Sounds like you are having a busy summer! My family went to the Torchlight parade last night as well. I loved going to that parade growing up. Hope you have a great vacation when you leave!

The boys really wanted to hit the parade last night too, but we had the last day of soccer for the season.
We would love to put a coupon to use. Grant's birthday is Tuesday and he's already decided we're having Noodles!
Let's plan something when you get back from your trip!

Oh, pick me!!! LOL My family & I have been on a "no out to eat, no Starbucks (Can you imagine, LOL), not extras" this month just to see how it affected our budget...so some FREE sammies would help us scratch that itch!
