Well, I started out keeping up. Then things went downhill. Oh well, there are worse things.
But here's a round up for you.
We headed off to the beach cottage on the NC coast for some family summertime fun. It was the perfect mini-vacay we both needed and enjoyed celebrating all the summer birthdays together. We always take Maggie with us because she LOVES swimming and fishing. Seriously, the dog can't get enough. We cast the net and Maggie will help pull it back in and check out the loot. You could never even catch anything and she'd always be there just to make sure :)
We celebarted my 28th birthday. Woot. Now, I feel old. If there's anything that I hate about my husband it's that he's younger than me. Every birthday it's like a punch in the gut. Not really, but you know. Girls are always hard on ourselves. The good news about this is he always knows how to make his wife feel like the most special girl in the room at all times. And boy, do I love him for that.
Yes, I caught fireflies. Well, it was more like one landed on me one night while getting the mail. But I took a second to talk to him. So it counts. Right? I thought so.
I did not get any awesome naps on the porch or in the backyard. It's still on the to-do list. I still have the rest of the summer.
Aaaand, my to-do list for the house continues to grow. I swear, we really need to get our butts in gear and get some things done around here other than the usual cleaning. Our paintbrushes probably think we've abandonded them to a life of collecting dust and drying out.
Now, I just need a couple of days without temps in the high 90's to get some things done without the top layer of my skin melting off. Ah, the life in the south. At least I have my sweet tea to get me through.
