Ghetto Dreamin'

the essentials of having a ghetto backyard - i'm not sure if i'm proud about it or not - but my backyard is hosting all of the above - for those hot days that i just need to cool down, take in some sun, and relax after work (NJ is currently hosting its 3rd heat wave - this one has been over a week long and been over 100 degrees everyday - its been holy pants on fire hot!) - so it's gonna be a ghetto summer in my backyard this year b/c this girl can't afford a built in pool and all the fixing that go with it - so this shall do for now - so far it's been a hit - anything goes :o)

your totally singing 'gin and juice' right now aren't ya?! 


PS - haven't had much time to blog of late - i hope to be blogging again at some point (probably in the fall) - also i haven't had time to read blogs either (sorry!) - excited to catch up with everyone soon - you can always find me on instagram or facebook (i usually only use my personal account on FB - just let me know and i'll request you that way) - wishing you the BEST SUMMER of your lives!!!!
