Everyday Life: 06.22.12 – 07.05.12

I hope this week has gone well for everyone! We had record breaking heat last week and then a crazy wind storm yesterday with winds up to 65 miles an hour! It was kind of fun to watch last night especially since all is well here although I know there are lots of trees down elsewhere in town. Whew! We get insane weather here in the South! I never really thought about it before we moved here but it sure gives us great content for conversations :)

Since I was unable to post last week, I have a bit of catching up to do… again! It seems I am always in that spot.

I had a birthday a couple of weeks ago and one of my favorite things about having a bday is the free Starbucks. I finally got around to using it and it was delish! Thank you Starbucks. I love you.

I thought I was pretty cool with my glow bracelet on. These aren’t just for kids. It was fun for me too :)

Not the best photo but who cares right? I was taking this photo for my mother-in-law who gave me that shirt for my birthday. I love it and I was happy to show it off for her :)

Another Starbucks date with my sweetheart. Yeesh! You would think we live there. We don’t actually go that often but we happened to have another free one and we had to take advantage of it. And adding a cinnamon roll to the mix made our date even better!

I was at Target and I saw this new display. I was in love. So cute. The colors and packaging are perfect!

I had taken a break from the Photo A Day challenge but I started up again for July. July 1st was self portrait. This is my version with my blue toenails.

2. Busy. I had a hard time coming up with a photo for busy. Then I realized I was too busy finishing this book to be busy with anything else :) I enjoyed the book but it is very sad.

3. Best part of your day. For me it’s bedtime. Really, I love snuggling up and going to sleep. I love naps too. Anytime that involves sleeping is wonderful :)

4. Fun. I really enjoy puzzles and every once in a while I get one out and (duh!) put it together. Our library here in town has tons of puzzles that you can check out. It’s pretty sweet. Now I never buy them, I just check them out. Free puzzles are even funner.

Look at us on July 4th all red, white, and blue! We went to a friend’s house for the holiday at the lake and watched fireworks and ate yummy food including smores. I have been craving smores ever since :)

People are crazy for fireworks here. Another thing I didn’t know until I moved here :)

5. On the floor. What is on the floor? The cat. Always :) She likes to park herself on the carpet where you enter the living room. Or on the stairs so you have to walk around her. She’s a crazy one…

It’s not the best but here is a little shot from our wind storm yesterday. I captured it much better on video but I don’t know how to post a video :) You can see a little bit the blur of brown, that is all of the leaves as they blew uphill. It was insane. We had a bunch of sticks afterwards but there weren’t really any leaves left in our yard.

And that is all the news that’s fit to print around here. I have been making lots of stuff lately and having so much fun doing it. So, I guess I’d better get back to crafting :) Have a great weekend!!
