I am so happy that it is finally June! Here are ten reasons why:

1) My firstborn turns TWO on the 4th!

2) My “baby” turns ONE on the 25th!

3) June brings the official “start” of my favorite season (though it feels like summer has been here in Chicago for a few weeks now).

4) Lots of fresh fruits and veggies and grilling out means I’m eating healthier.

5) Spending most of our day outside means that the boys sleep well at night which means I get more sleep, too.

6) We will go on our first picnic of the year.

7) The boys get to wear their matching “My Dad Is Rad” t-shirts on Father’s Day.

8) Garage Sales, Farmer’s Markets, and Festivals will make our weekends fun!

9) We get to spend a lot of time with our friends and family this month.

10) THE “BIRTHDAY BASH” EVENT IS HERE!!!!!!!! To celebrate Jake and Luke’s birthdays I am throwing a blog party and you are all invited! **There are going to be giveaways every weekday for the whole month of June** and just for fun I may even add a few in on the weekends.

**Let’s start things off right now! **

The first giveaway this month will be a $25 gift card to my favorite store…. TARGET! There is only one way you can win this and that is by becoming a subscriber (RSS or email) and leaving a comment here on this post to let me know that you subscribe. The winner will be chosen on July 1st.

Subscribing is FREE and easy to do… On the right hand side, in the sidebar toward the top of this page there are two sections. One says “Don’t miss a post!” and one says “Receive new posts by email”. Choosing either of those helps ensure you won’t miss a giveaway this month. Please make sure to confirm your subscription when you get a confirmation email.

Disclosure: Target did not provide me with the gift card.

Make sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of this month for new giveaways! :)
