Happy Belated Bastille Day! We got our hot dogs and BBQ fix on 4th of July, now it’s time for some bubbly and macaroons. Lucky for us, this week had us out of the office and hitting the streets more than usual so we finally got to enjoy some of summer weather everybody’s been talking about. Obviously the talk of the town right now is Harry Potter. Will you be braving the crowds and hitting the theaters this weekend? If anything, it’s a sure way to cool off with some free air conditioning!

In other news, we’ve got some great giveaways going on all week, and stay tuned for some Christmas in July news. In the meantime, have a fantastic weekend. Here are some fun links to enjoy, we’ll see you back on Monday.
