I can’t believe it’s almost Fourth of July!
My favorite FOJ memory of all time? My dog running straight toward the annual FOJ Block Party Potluck!
My family always celebrates FOJ at home with the neighbors. In the morning there are games, a bike decorating contest, and other stuff I usually sleep through. In the afternoon there’s a giant potluck where every family on my block share the yummiest feast ever.
That particular year, I had just rescued Sniffles about two weeks before this incident. He was still a little wild, very insecure, and had severe separation anxiety. We left him in my mom’s yard, thinking he’ll be fine playing with my mom’s dog, but nope, that’s not the case. The moment doors were left opened, he slipped into the house from the back and ran full force through the garage toward the potluck crowd.
Everyone stared at him and someone said, “Hey, that dog looks like Sniffles!” Truth to be told, since I had just taken his cone off earlier that week, I still had trouble recognizing his face. So yes, the crazy dog running towards the potluck was indeed my baby boy, Sniffles.
This year’s FOJ will be the last one I spend at home for a while. With that, I’m helping Bellacures run a contest to get new clients to their salons. What’s in it for you? Discounts and a chance to win a free mani/pedi! What’s in it for me? The blogger who brings the most new clients will win a $300 Visa gift card. Why would you want to help? Read my last post – I’m not unemployed.
From July 1st – July 7th, Bellacures wants to find out who has the most patriotic spirit for the 4th of July
1. Use Facebook or Foursquare Check-in at your Local Bellacures to receive an INSTANT Discount on your service of 10% or $20 off a spicy manicure and pedicure special at any Bellacures salon

(Review of bellacures coming soon – let’s just say I convinced my guy friend to get a man-icure!)
Disclaimer: Yes I posted this contest because I really could use an extra $300!
