How is your summer going so far? Pretty well! My DH is back, which is very exciting. We're having a good time.

Any plan for Father's Day? We will have celebrated the biggest Latvian national holiday the night before (mid-summer's eve) so I'm pretty sure the extent of our celebrating will be me giving my dad and my DH cards. Smile

Does your Moonbeam like to sleep in the car? She does now. THANK GOD!

What are your Moonbeam's current favorite foods? still black beans, also cheese, and olives, and Vegemite (she'd suck that stuff straight out of the tube if she could).

Do you have a QR code? If so what info did you give it (website, vcard, etc.)? I don't even know what a QR code is. ????

Are you a home body or do you like to get out? Both...depends on what I'm going out for. Smile

Long nails or short nails? Painted or natural? If I lived in the States I would love to have fake nails....but, since I don't, I keep em rather short (because they don't naturally grow very long without breaking- except when I was pregnant, and when I was living in Asia...oooh, maybe when I go back to Laos they'll get nice again!), and often painted.

Any plan for Father's Day? We're visiting my IL's and will be partying it up with them.

Does your Moonbeam like to sleep in the car? Nope she prefers to make faces at her sister.

What are your Moonbeam's current favorite foods? banana! "Nana! Nana!"

Do you have a QR code? If so what info did you give it (website, vcard, etc.)? Not sure what this is...

Are you a home body or do you like to get out? A bit of both!

Long nails or short nails? Painted or natural? Short and natural. I find polish on finger nails kind of gross after years in the restaurant biz and then years in the esthetics biz.

Moonbeam's name: Evie Belle (or Bella Marie)

How is your summer going so far? I'm with Jen on the heat. We've had heat indexes well into the hundreds for a few weeks now.

Any plan for Father's Day? DH is going deep-sea fishing, and I'm going to my parents' home with the kids.

Does your Moonbeam like to sleep in the car? Every now and then. She's usually cutting up with her big brothers.

What are your Moonbeam's current favorite foods? Strawberries, Veggie Straws, any pasta, blueberries, bell peppers

Do you have a QR code? If so what info did you give it (website, vcard, etc.)? I was supposed to get a smart phone, but we found out data plans are mandatory for them now, so DH decided to pass. I guess there's not really much of a point to a smart phone if you're a slave to free wifi anyway.

Are you a home body or do you like to get out? I love going out. If I had a maid or could magically keep the house clean, I'd probably prefer to stay home.

Long nails or short nails? Painted or natural? Short and unpolished fingernails (I type all day and would chip the junk out of any fingernail polish), but medium-length painted toenails (I'm in open-toed shoes all the time now).

How is your summer going so far? Busy! Three family reunions in four weeks. Too much traveling all at once.

Any plan for Father's Day? Not really. We keep things pretty simple.

Does your Moonbeam like to sleep in the car? Nope! She was exhausted after a weekend away and still only napped under an hour and a half on our way home. She does much better in her crib. And she really only falls asleep on long car rides, not around town at all.

What are your Moonbeam's current favorite foods? Cheese, cheese and more cheese. Oh, and homemade veggie lasagna.

Do you have a QR code? If so what info did you give it (website, vcard, etc.)? No clue what that is!

Are you a home body or do you like to get out? Both. Most of the time I would prefer to hang at my house (or a family member's). But sometimes I am just in the mood to go out.

Long nails or short nails? Painted or natural? Short and natural fingernails. Short and painted toenails.

You ladies are so funny about the QR code! You've seen them you just don't know what they are called. Here's an example:

You can create your own with your business contact info or a link to your website. Most smart phones have apps that can read them.

You also see them in advertisements so your smart phone can scan and take you to their website or store where you can purchase the item or compare prices.

Fun (and frankly very scary) stuff. Ah the love/hate of technology.

That pic didn't work, but I think I know what you mean. I don't have a cell phone at all, so I'm blissfully out of touch! Lol

How is your summer going so far? I will answer that in regards to WINTER lol; finally had some rain and it's been cold (OK forgive me but my cold is like mid 50's hehe)

Any plan for Father's Day? Well ours is in September here (weird as our Mothers Days are the same!)

Does your Moonbeam like to sleep in the car? If it's around his usual nap time he will nod off otherwise he stays awake and is fairly placid.

What are your Moonbeam's current favorite foods? Custard and these banana/oat fruit bars, but really he has a lot of favourite food, he chomps down all day everyday on everything but those 2 things sure make him smile!

Do you have a QR code? If so what info did you give it (website, vcard, etc.)? nope!

Are you a home body or do you like to get out? Depends how I am feeling, if I feel like a day out I'll just go or if I feel like being at home then I will vege out as much as possible!

Long nails or short nails? Painted or natural? short and natural!

Christina, why and how do you know about the QR code? I had never seen one before a couple weeks ago. Definitely never saw one in Angola, but that isn't saying much. I wonder if they are more popular in some parts of the country or in some industries????

Happy Belated Birthday!!

Name: Hilda

Moonbeam's name: Leyla

How is your summer going so far? Great so far. But that's because we went to Jamaica for a week. Hmm, maybe it's anticlimatic to take vacation early on. Not sure we can outdo that haha.

Any plan for Father's Day? I have music rehearsal in the morning then we're going to a nice lunch. Then the girls will give him their gifts (DD1 painted a superman paperweight for him in art class and he's getting a nice frame with their pics).

Does your Moonbeam like to sleep in the car? NOPE! She hates being in the car. We finally got past the screams the entire time phase and can now have about 15 min of peace before she starts acting up.

What are your Moonbeam's current favorite foods? Rice, beans, chicken breast, fruits.

Do you have a QR code? If so what info did you give it (website, vcard, etc.)? Nope. Honestly, not even sure what this is.

Are you a home body or do you like to get out? Mostly a home body so working from home has been great for me. But come the weekend I do need some time to get away from the house.

Long nails or short nails? Painted or natural? I usually wear short natural nails, but recently got my first manicure in years so now they are painted and longer than usual. I kinda like it!
