July SLP Link Up

All Y'all Need has posted her July SLP link up.  Link ups are a fun way for readers to get to know bloggers.  It's also a great opportunity to get to know fellow bloggers.  Get started on her website HERE.

Just:  Packing
The Speech2u's family is heading to the lake for some sun and relaxation.  I've got piles of clothes, games and activities scattered around the house that I need to pack up.  It's been a few years since we've taken a vacation that didn't involve visiting other relatives.  I'm SO excited to get away for a few days.

Using:  Bloglovin'
I'm organizing my blog lists and using Bloglovin' to keep track of everyone.  I'm also using a LOT of mosquito spray this summer.  With all the rain we got, they are MONSTERS.  Most of the time I use some non-DEET organic spray but last night I just layered on the Deep Woods Off.  I have about a million mosquito bites, the Deep Woods Off does seem to work the best.

Loving:  Mommy Time Manicures
Yesterday I dropped my son off at a drop in babysitting site and went to get a pedicure and manicure.  Pedicures got dropped from my budget when I gave up my second job.  But this week, I just really wanted to treat myself AND I had a coupon.  Plus I'm a much better mommy when I get some alone time.

Yummy: Zucchini Lasagna
I love this time of year and visiting the Farmer's markets.  We've been loving this recipe for Zucchini lasagna.

Thanks for lInking up! Pedis are my splurge, too, but I don't get manicures because they just don't stay for me. Have a wonderful, bug-free vacation!

The lasagne recipe sounds delicious! I am saving it so that I can use it one day when it cools off enough to turn the oven back on... Have a GREAT vacation!! I am so excited for you!

I love my alone time! I totally agree that it makes you a better mom (and more patient!). Sadly, much of my "alone time" is spent doing things I need to do, like grocery shopping, and not things I want to do, like get a pedicure!

PS, Zucchini lasagna?! Yes please!

Loving the farmer's markets, too!! You definitely deserve the pedicure! I'm sure it looks great, too! Enjoy your summer of fun!

When I lived in MN and TX the mosquitoes were terrible! But they aren't bothering nearly as much in Iowa. Sounds like you are having a great summer. I love farmers markets and may just have to try out that zucchini lasagna recipe :) Thanks for sharing.
