So due to the fact that this summer has been way more busy then I had anticipated it being also that crazy things have come up on a regular basis, I haven't been blogging as often as I normally would have, so this is sort of a catch up on the last little while.
The Fourth of July was awesome! My family had a small BBQ then we went fireworks shopping with my uncle. For those of you who don't know my father and my uncle, when they get together two things happen. 1) They go crazy. This in and of itself should be enough to give you a good idea of how the firework shopping went, but then comes 2) They always end up spending way more money then they should. Translation: we came home with a car that had been converted into an arsenal. We spent the rest of the day lounging at a local park listening to a band and some singing group doing oldies music. This wouldn't be so bad if one of the ladies in the group was flat the whole time. I tried to sleep through that part. The fireworks weren't too bad either! I was pretty impressed actually. For what I had anticipated it was great!
That weekend we had Tyler, Katie, and Peyton over for a BBQ. It was ridiculously funny watching an 18 month old trying to run on a trampoline! She's the most wonderful, perfect baby and she's getting a new sister this week! Hooray! I'm excited for that too!
The next weekend was pretty fun too! We had my cousins Aaron and Lauren over for a BBQ (I know, we have a lot of BBQ's) and we were the ones to get a little bit crazy! Lauren and I had great fun making ourselves electrically charged on the trampoline and getting crazy hair!
Lastly, I went to a Mary Kay demonstration/sales thing and we had a blast! It was interesting getting makeup tips from someone who hasn't studied it nearly as much as I have and who really just says things to try and get you to buy her products, but oh well! It was fun anyway!
Before (don't we look lovely!?)
After with the kitten who was playing in my purse during the demonstration!
So really, July has had a lot of fun things going on! I have great family and friends who keep me busy and having an amazing time! Maybe being an adult isn't so bad after all! (Thanks again to Amy for the makeup pics!)
Oh, and as a side note, I'm pathetic. I finished Stephanie Meyer's book The Host in 24 hours. It's 616 pages long and I read it all in one day... So sad... In my defense I was sick so I had nothing better to do then sit in bed and read. Whatever, you just wish you read that fast! :)
