Time for a challenge...

Happy Monday!

This weekend is a long weekend for me, and it's glorious. Sorry for all of you people stuck at work today, I'm probably still curled up in bed #sorrynotsorry.

I'm having a mini-staycation this weekend, and it's very much necessary/needed and long overdue. I debated doing a weekend shenanigans post today but I'm basically just too tired, so I'm just going to share something else with y'all instead.

The other day I came up with an idea to blog every day in July. I hate that I was really 'on the ball' last year with blogging 4-5x a week and this year I am lucky if I blog once a week... I miss it. So I told two of my best friends about it and I might have maybe sorta kinda forced asked them nicely to join me. They agreed, duh. So for the entire month of July, Allie, Juliette, and I will blog EVERY day... including weekends. Anyway, the more that we talked about it, the more we decided it might be a cool idea to have other people join us and we decided to make this open to everyone. Allie even made a cool looking button if you decide to join us.

And because we are really nice and stuff, we figured we would just go ahead and give you 31 topics you could blog about. So let's get this party started, shall we?

July 1st: Canada Day - Yes, this is a real thing (for all of you Americans that don't know about it).. it's similar to Independence Day. Since joining this blog-world, I find I'm often asked ridiculous hilarious questions about Canada.. so I'm going to share some Canadian knowledge with y'all.
July 2nd: Guilty Pleasures - You know all those things that you really love but maybe don't want to admit that you really love.
July 3rd: Update on Getting Uncomfortable in 2014 - What have you done out of your comfort zone this year? 
July 4th: Independence Day - All things 'Murica
