Today was a big day for our humble subdivision. Front page news called it an "event". Candace Parker grew up right here and played on this court from the time she was 5 years old until she graduated from high school. And, today the Naperville Park District dedicated this newly renovated basketball court in her name. It was a fun "event". I don't think anyone came outside the subdivision even though it was heavily advertised. Our park is kind of obscure and unless you know exactly where Spring-Field park is - you won't find it.
What a gracious young woman! She truly is a role model for young girls everywhere. It was fun to see neighbors I haven't seen in years since my son is grown and gone. Him and Candace were actually classmates on and off through the years. It's amazing how time passes so quickly and our kids grow up to be basketball stars and world travelers. It just proves, whatever your dreams, they can come true!

It's just one of those days where you wish you were the one traveling. I've been thinking of my son all day wondering how his adventure in Bolivia is going. I'm missing his phone calls to "just talk" and his calling me to test his ideas or thoughts. And, then I received an email from some friends that are taking a 15 day cruise in Europe. They are putting together a "diary" in pdf format with great pictures of the sights they are seeing. What a great idea! I just might consider this when we go to Europe this Winter.
So, it's just another week and a half before I take off for a vacation - to where I don't know - it's a surprise! What to pack? Don't know. But, I do know I will be taking my Miche Bag with at least 3 shells!
What adventure to you have planned?

Just like the cat, I'm getting more and more curious as to where I'm going for my "surprise" birthday vacation. My clues are: Need a passport, don't need a bathing suit (I think that rules out Mexico), and my son thinks I've been there but dad has not (so that leaves out Europe). The only thing left is Canada and we've both been to the West (Vancouver) and to the East (Quebec) so I'm thinking it's either Toronto or Montreal. I've been through both, but didn't spend any time there. I'm not even really sure what there is to do there, but I'm sure he has it all figured out. So I'll just keep on being curious and look forward to the day I pack and he has to give me a clue as to what to pack.
Speaking of being curious....are you curious to see what's new with the Miche Bag? A new Shell design that creates "pockets" on both sides of the purse is all the talk around town. Check these designs out....
This new style bag is $28.00. Call my toll free number to order 866-508-5496

Yes, it's that kind of a day! I had plans to really enjoy my day downtown rummaging through the annual sidewalk sale hoping for some great bargains. I don't really mind the rain, but when the thunder starts, I tend to get a little "spooked". So the sidewalk sale was a wash out.
Speaking of sales....I'm having a Miche Bag Party on Thursday, July 16th. If you call me anytime between now and then you can purchase the Miche Bag for a great discount. Also, the Shells will be one special price. For every Shell ordered you have a chance to win a Miche Shell Organizer. Don't miss out on this great opportunity. Here's how it works:

Here's a "sneak" look at a few of the newest Shells that will be available.
