Thursday Thirteen – Last days of summer & giveaways

It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is this weekend, marking the unofficial end of summer.

I LIVE for the summer. It’s my favorite time of year for lots of reasons. I love to be outdoors so I can walk on the boardwalk, garden, dip my toes in the ocean and hang out on the beach beneath the umbrella, catching up on my To-Be-Read pile.

I also love summer because of the different foods that are available and that I prepare for the hotter days!

So today’s Thursday 13 is a list of my favorite summer foods, in reverse because I’m going to share my top 3 today at the Forever Romance Summer Reading Club! Please drop by from 12 to 2 EST today to chat with me, ask some questions and maybe even get a recipe for one of my favorites! We’ll also have a giveaway today during the chat.

Here are today’s Thursday 13 of top favorite summer foods, in reverse! Click here to visit other Thursday 13 bloggers.

Guilty Pleasure Monday – Tom Brady, Guest Blogs & Giveaways

Being a Jet-Giants fan, you know I would never be a big fan of the New England Patriots and yet this weekend, as I was watching the games, I caught an interview with Tom Brady. Now, I’d never thought he was all that cute before, but this new slightly scruffy longer-haired look and ready smile sure certifies him as hottie material!

So today’s Guilty Pleasure Monday hottie is none other than Tom Brady, quarterback for the Patriots, father of two and hubby to a supermodel.

Also take a moment to visit Books on the House and Paranormal Haven who are hosting me today and have some goodies for you to possibly win!

Wicked Wednesday – ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH?

Take a moment to visit one of these spots on the ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH BLOG tour.
