  1. This may be a dumb question, but how and or where do I put everyone's buttons...and where can I get my own? Thanks for your help!!

  2. I am a follower and your button is on my blog!

    My favorite thing about summer in Minnesota is spending time on the lake - in the sun, fishing, boating, swimming, etc... - or spending time outside - four-wheeling, hiking, etc... - We have great summers in Minnesota with great weather so I love to spend as much of it outside as possible.

    (I believe that's 3 entries!) I'm very excited!

  3. Kaemommy: Its not a dumb question at all! :) Simply copy the code under the button you want to add then go to your blogger dashboard and click layout. Then click "add a gadget." Then click on "html/javascript" and a little pop up window will appear. Paste the code into the box and hit save. Then you can drag the button to wherever you want on your page and click save. Then view your blog to make sure it worked and voila! You have my button. As for making one...Karissa from "Being a Better Wife" made the top one for me which is adorable. The second one I made on photobucket. :) Hope that helped!!

    Mel: Thanks for entering! :)

    Summer in Virginia is peaceful and great! I love going to the beach with my little family, visiting the Children's museum, having a nice cookout, and having a few laughs in the backyard. It's a great time to have some margaritas and be the ones you love. Except the kids get fruit punch instead of margaritas..haha. I love seeing my little man run around by his little pool. Nothing makes me smile more than taking a walk with the hubby and the kids to get some ice cream. Nights are great for parking your car at the DQ and eating a blizzard outside. That's my summer!!!!

  5. Thanks Brittney for the nice comment. I am a follower already, but I think i will also grab a button

  6. I just realized that I blogged about your giveaway but never came over to answer the question! My favorite thing about Summer in Florida, is exactly that. It's summer in Florida! I live in a vacation mecca so there are always fun things to do and of course there is the old standby...THE BEACH! It's such a great perk to have a private beach on base, I love crowds to deal with, no trash to pick disgusting smell of pot wafting down the beach. Pure sand and lovely waves and the added pleasure of watching the ships pull in! Jacksonville may be the nations largest city (look it up!) but I always feel at home and very comfy here!

  7. Oooh those nail polishes are so pretty! I'm a follower and I grabbed your button. :)

    Let's see...I absolutely love summer in North Dakota! Summer means camping, fishing, boating, traveling, concerts, going for walks with my family, etc. My hubs is a huge outdoorsman, which I LOVE so we go on tons of summertime adventures together. Every summer since I was a kid my family has gone to a town called Medora in the SW part of the state. It's a very historic town with a focus on when Teddy Roosevelt lived there. They have a musical every year in an outdoor ampitheater and they also have a ton of little souvenir shops. I love it there. I could go on and on, but I'll stop! lol.

  8. Hi there! I was going to grab your cute button even before I saw this contest. :)

    My favorite thing about summer is getting to crash my best friend's family beach vacation. I love the ocean, the sunshine, the boardwalk, the french fries with vinegar, the people watching, and being around her and her wonderful family since mine is so far away and I don't get to see them very often. This year's beach trip is in July and I can't wait!

  9. Thanks for letting me know how to get your button, I did it!

    My favorite thing about summer is having the time to hang out with my girls and go to the pool and just relax. Summer always seems less stressful and more relaxing, I love it!

  10. Grabbed your button & I'm a follower!

    (ps. Thanks for the comment on my blog!)

    I would have to say that my favorite thing abut summer is.. the adorable little outfits I can put my daughter in! Hehe.. Nothing is cutter then a sweet little baby in the most adorable little outfit! I am sure everyone will agree :)

  11. I am a folloewer and grabbed your adorable button!

    I am BRAND NEW to Coronado, California and so we are discovering the area for summer. We've been checking out the beaches of Southern California and trying to stay away from the border.

    We try to go into San Diego once a month, but it's so expensive to park or do anything, once a month is all it gets right now.

  12. I'm a follower and I have snagged a button :)
    I have to say my fav. part of summer is the 4th of July! It's been my fav since i was a little girl, and we have a family tradition of watching the Sandlot every 4th and cooking out and fireworks... whats not to LOVE!
