Calling All Bonanno Fanatics!!!!!

Have you all heard? The Best Sale Ever is happening over at our favorite sandal shop! Click over to pick your personalized sandals for their best pricing even seen. I already own three pairs of the Emma Monogrammed Sandals, but I will be ordering again! Now I will just need to get completely overwhelmed by their interactive color chart and decide between thousands of different color combos! The great thing about shoes girls is that they always fit (unlike everything else I own!) So Go Shop!!!

Not Much To Report

Things have been pretty quiet around here lately. The weather has been awful, we've had more rain this Summer than I can remember. The Thunderstorms have been crazy: First we are in the pool, then everyone out, then everyone back in, now everyone out again. It is hard to believe that August is here and half gone already. Work is a bit crazy because Madigan's camp schedule is 9-2pm so I am only in the office for 5 hours a day. In a strange way, I can't wait for school to start so we can be on our routine again.

Socially, we hosted a cookout for some of the families at Madigan's school. We lucked out weather wise and had a great Summer day. We grilled up a storm serving filet mignon, chicken breast, shrimp and hot dogs and burgers for the kids. I made some great martinis and then we stoked up our new fire pit. The kids made s'mores and did not even make a mess!

This weekend brings a birthday party on Saturday and another on Sunday for three kids. Also, it is tax free weekend here in Massachusetts and I have a few things on my shopping list! I'll have to report how many things I get done next week!

Open House

Today is House Tour Day on one of my favorite blogs, Hooked on Houses. I have always loved looking at fabulous houses and can remember as a little girl asking my Dad to drive me around the nice neighborhoods where we would see spectacular houses. I always loved to wonder what the people were like behind the curtains.....I digress. Head over there to check out some fab real estate!

The house I want to share is a beautiful ocean front home in Hull, Massachusetts. The house once belonged to JFK's grandfather. Here are a few shots!

You can find the actual listing here All things considered, I think this house is a steal at $2,375,000. Please head over and check it out! And if you buy it, let me know which guest room is mine!
