August In Numbers
I don't think we've ever had a busier summer, and the days have flown by. I missed July, but wanted to share my August in numbers, and on Monday I'll be linking up with Deena.
Let's start with the peaches - oh, the peaches! Every August my husband brings home a big box from Eastern Washington. And then we buy more at the Farmer's Market. I've probably consumed 30 peaches, give or take 10 or so! By the way, I also tried 1 pluot, and wasn't a fan. Tastes like a plum.
31 days spent helping mom decide on finishes for her new house. Yep, every single day there was a decision to be made about paint colors, flooring, counter tops, lighting. Everything should be done in the next few weeks, and after a year of living with us, she'll finally have her own home again.
1 baseball game with my boys. They retired Ken Griffey's number 24, and Conner wanted to see him. The rain held off, the Blue Angels flew over, and we won. Perfect day.
I'm on month 5 of Invisalign. There's been a huge change with my front teeth, but wearing rubber bands is a pain in the butt. Only 2 more years to go!
I spent 6 hours with a group of Seattle fashion bloggers, learning about ways to use social media better and write fashion content. I wasn't the only old fogie in the room, and Style Lab was really beneficial. More to come soon...
We drove 285.5 miles to drop Thomas off at college, spent a day getting him settled in his dorm, then drove 285.5 miles back. I may have been crying the entire way home. And I also ate 20 Canadian maple leaf cream cookies (yep, the entire box), because doesn't that make everyone feel better? It's been 14 days since I've seen him, but there has been texting and facetime. Thank God for cell phones.
Our puppy is almost 4 months old. He and Abby are inseparable, and won't sleep unless they're touching each other. So adorable.
Our trip to Paris is coming up soon, and I've spent a gazillion hours reading and planning. We're kind of flying by the seat of our pants, which is new for me. I'm getting so excited!
That's a wrap on August. Hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend!
