What I Did This Summer

I had a spectacular summer!  The boys didn't actually have a lot of time off from school, but we managed to make the best of it and fit in a lot of fun.  Kiddos grow up so fast.  There are days that they drove me absolutely crazy (which is actually a pretty short drive) but I also realize that someday all too soon they will be grown up.  Then I will miss these days.  So, without further sappy ado, I spent this summer...

...taking the kiddos to the park for free lunch.  Um, hello!  Free lunch rocks my world.  Plus the whole park thing was a great way to get out of the house.

...coming to grips with the fact that I am now only 2 years away from 30.  Yep, I turned 28 this summer.  I had a fantastic birthday.  The boys made me the cutest little coupon booklets.  I am entitled to backrubs and car washes for the rest of my life.

...traveling to Arkansas.  We took a trip home to visit family.  I have to say it was the best trip yet.  We had such a wonderful time.  On one hand, I hated to leave.  But I was also super excited to get back to my own bed.

...kind of looking for a job.  I still haven't found a job.  Honestly, I'm getting a little panicked about it.  But I'm sure something will come along soon.

...reading.  I read a few books.  I'll tell you about those in an upcoming post. and baking.  I taught myself to make some kick-butt pies.  I'll share those recipes and tips soon.  I also made some great dinner dishes.  Again, I have plans of sharing those too.

So, that was my big exciting summer.  I loved every minute of it.  I did miss you, my bloggy friends.  But I made some awesome memories with my kiddos and that's what it's all about :)


  1. Whoohoo! Job hunting is chaotic. So is working at the CC, since I never really know if I have a job for the semester, haha. I finally feel like I'm contributing to our finances though, so that's nice. Good luck to you!
    I've been trying to cook a new recipe a week. I should probably share some of these on my blog too (today's a blueberry cobbler!)

  2. Sounds like a fabulous summer!

  3. I wish I could make a pie! What a great summer! Stopping from SITS!

  4. Happy belated birthday and can't wait to hear what books you've been reading.


Comments?! Yes, please! I'll return the love.
