On Friday, we went to the Brimfield Antiques Show, which is this thing where 400 antiques dealers take over an entire town, and you walk around for five hours in the hot sun while your kid whines that he wants to go home, and then you wind up buying a goat made out of scrap metal.
So yeah, I'm tired. Let's get on with it.
What I Wrote
Remember last week, when I told you that my Fourth of July party was going to suck? Well, it actually went pretty well, even though the fireworks and patio furniture arrived two days too late. Party Aftermath and Some Fireworks

Theme Thursday was about superheroes this week. My husband and I can't agree on just what makes a hero super. In fact, I can't even agree with myself. Come help me figure it out. How Do You Define a Superhero?
What I SharedI had a celebrity encounter on Twitter and bragged about it on Facebook.
My son was pukey and feverish on Monday, and he wouldn't drink water, so I came up with this:
|It worked! I'm pretty proud of myself.|
And I did my nails. Because hooray nails.
|My special Specials nails|
What I ReadRobyn from Hollow Tree Ventures shared a recipe. Only, not really. Really, it's just a hilarious and spot-on post about cooking with kids, and you will love it.
Karen from Baking in a Tornado tells you everything you're doing wrong on Twitter, and I could not agree more.
Starr from The Insomniac's Dream is on a road trip, and she wants to meet you! Do you live somewhere in between Pennsylvania and Arizona? Hit her up!
Kim from One Classy Motha humilated her dog for our amusement.
Another Kim, from It Is Interesting to Note, worked herself up into a tizzy over an expired license plate.
Tweets I Enjoyed
Sometimes you can just look at a kid and know they're going to grow up to be just like Billy Zabka in the Karate Kid.

Summer is 90% getting ready to swim, 7% peeling wet bathing suits off kids so they can pee, and 3% whispering "just go in the pool."

Somewhere all the swim goggles and the single socks are making beautiful waterproof googly-eyed sock puppets.
