Life lately has been quite interesting! I feel as if I have been taking advantage of little moments and making the most of my summer vacay. Here's what I've been up the past couple of weeks!
I spent the weekend with a few of my favorite girls. What's better than laying out all afternoon and taking a little boat ride? Not much folks, not much.
My bf and I cashed in a sweet giftcard to a local restaurant and took advantage of the yummy steak and fish options. The leftovers were transformed into a delicious steak and egg bagel sandwich. Yum.
It's very rare that in the month of June, in Missouri, that I am able to sit on my patio and enjoy a cup of joe. One morning, the heat decided to take a little break so we took full advantage of the splendid weather and spent our morning in the outdoors. P.S. MIZZOU-RAH! Five days until my treasured Missouri Tigers become part of the SEC. Is it football season yet?
For the past few years, I've always been in transition mode around the 4th of July. I was either graduating or moving. Life really didn't give up the time for me to decorate for the holidays. This year, I'm staying put and I decided to get a little patriotic. My house is beaming with red, white, and blue.
You may (or may not) remember way back when I posted here about my new sewing machine. It was a fantastic Christmas gift from my Grandma as of June 25, 6 months later, I had yet to use it. As an accidental half Christmas celebration, I decided to bust out the sewing machine and figure out how it actually worked.
After a little shopping trip to JoAnn Fabrics, my neighb and I decided on an apron. We were up to the wee hours (okay, 12:30 AM) creating this apron for the kitchen. Around midnight, I finally fell asleep with thread and fabric stuck to me. My first sewing attempt was a success, I look forward to blogging about my next adventures.
Chip, the wonder dog, and I took a little road trip back to the lake this week. We were anxiously awaiting the arrival of weekend visitors until today. Life stepped in and changed plans ...in a good way!
My sweet little nephew, Beckett, became a big brother today. For months I've been asking him what we should name his little sister and he would quickly reply, "T-Rex". I tried to tell him that it would be difficult to convince his parents of this name, but he stuck to his guns. I'm so excited to welcome my sweet niece Libby (Elisabeth) Jordon into the world. She's going to be spoiled rotten just like her brother by Aunt JJ!
