Webster defines 'dog days' as:
1) the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2) a period of stagnation or inactivity
What a perfect time of year to jazz things up and have some friends over!
This year, my dear friend Amy is throwing a dog days of summer birthday party for her soon-to-be 1-year old, Jack. She is busy getting ready for this August event, and looking for some inspiration. I plan on dedicating this week, or at least part of it, to Jack's big day. Feel free to throw in your ideas as well! (And to my reader throwing a 'flea' birthday party...you must send in pictures soon).

I love finding out the meaning behind names, but if you're not interested, I won't bore you on this blog. More to come tomorrow...
