Hard to believe that July is here already. Summer is going to be over before we know it.  Make sure to head over to Farley's blog and link up with your July currently!

I've been visiting my family in Massachusetts this week.  Today I am off to the zoo with my parents, sister, niece, and nephew.  It has been raining sporadically and just for a little bit here and there but the weather is SO much cooler than back home.  My husband said there was record heat in Houston yesterday, so I'm glad to have missed it!

My parents are doing construction on their house, so I am staying with my grandmother who does not have the internet.  Whaaaat?!  So I paid $20 through Verizon to have a wifi hotspot for the month.  Sometimes it works great just like regular wifi at home and other times it is so painfully slow that I cannot do anything!  I'm assuming it has to do with the speed of the 3G network in the area I am in.

I brought several books with me to read, but haven't gotten around to them yet.  I have The Book Whisperer with me and am sooooo far behind in reading Teach Like a Pirate!  Summers are so busy!

My advice:  If you are looking to gain followers, hold some sort of giveaway.  I was able to increase my Bloglovin' followers, Google followers, and Facebook followers tremendously last week through my 200 follower giveaway.  Also, I see others give away freebies to followers, etc. Copy what others do because it works!
