IN MY LIFE
* Today is my mom’s 70th birthday! I don’t think she’d mind me sharing her age because she looks SO good…I hope I got her genes 😉 Happy Birthday mom!
Today is also the Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Olympics in RIO! WOOHOO!!! I’m an Olympic junkie and I can’t wait to cheer on Team USA over these next two weeks. I told my son I hope he gets good enough in tennis so I can watch him play in the Olympics one day.
I also feel it bears mentioning that the Macy’s One Day Sale is today and tomorrow. This only happens once in awhile and the savings are incredible. You can discover more details here: https://www.samicone.com/?p=18236
