  • Morning Coffee: Finally Summer

    We’ve had a bizarre summer up until now – below average temps, and it actually sprinkled several times last week, and if you know SoCal weather, you know that it does not rain in July. But it’s supposed to start warming up this week, so maybe the pool will be viable afternoon activity by this weekend.

    Get a free sample of Good Nights underwear. My boys don’t need these, but I’ve been collecting free samples to stash in the house for when we have sleepovers. I’m obviously hoping not to need them, but it’ll be nice to have them just in case.

    Later today, I’ll have a guest over at Life As Mom about how we chose to send our boys to public school. If you’ve been reading CFO for a while, you know it wasn’t an automatic decision by any means!

    Speaking of Life As Mom, check out her post on how to make your own frozen burritos. I know they’re a popular freezer meal, but I’ve always thought we wouldn’t like how they come out. Now I’ll have to give them a try, though.
