In honor of the Fourth of July holiday here in the States last week, we were extremely laid-back with our challenge topic and offered up some summertime free reign with our Essence of Summer Challenge. We called upon you to show us your summertime moments and boy, did you deliver! Our call to action was met with shots of watermelon juice dripping off of adorable little chins, rodeo fun, firefly catching, festive holiday fun, kiddos in pools and more!

Once again this week it was so hard to pick a challenge winner, a pic that stood out from all the rest, because so many of you linked up and hashtagged such cute and festive pictures, However, we have decided that the winner MUST be….

Leilani from Just A Touch Of Crazy!


Leilani, you are the Essence of Summer Challenge winner! Here is your meme:


Susan from Of Every Moment was this weeks runner-up. She linked up this adorable pic of one of her family’s summertime traditions, going to the rodeo! Thanks for wrangling {sorry} these boys together for such a great candid shot Susan!


And now, for Mommy Reality Challenge #8: Mommy’s Guilty Pleasures!

This week, we want to know about ALL of your little “me” time secrets. The jar of Nutella and spoon you keep hidden in a high cupboard for after the little ones are asleep and your husband steps out, the most recent issue of The National Inquirer firmly tucked under the couch cushions that you’re saving for some sleazy reading and relaxing moments while the kids are at their playgroup, AND that bottle of wine that’s become your constant companion while your mother in law visits. Or maybe you prefer some time in the hammock in your backyard and peaceful reading of a classic novel- we’re looking for whatever floats your boat and keeps you functioning, happy, and {relatively} sane as a mommy!

So snap a pic, make a post and/or share it on a social media site with the hashtag #mommyreality and link it up below!

*Don’t forget that by submitting your pic, you are giving the Mommy Reality Team permission to use your photo to create a special silly meme for you if you win!

**The Mommy Reality team is VERY active on social media and in participating your post/photo will be pinned, posted, linked and shared on all of our social media accounts. So make sure to follow us so we can find your #mommyreality posts
