As I mentioned last month, I'm going to try real hard to get, have, and keep my blogging shit together this fall. To start out on the right foot it's time to finally get in a linkup that for some reason I always seem to miss.
July was a crazy busy month. I feel like the days came and went faster than I could look at the calendar. Even with the whirlwind, it was a lot of fun.
The beginning of the month found me home with the fam for the holiday weekend. Between the food, the pool, and the Slip n Slide, I had one amazing weekend.
The very next week I started training at the yoga studio. I was a little weary about adding more t my plate, especially when there really was no benefit to me, but that's what karma is all about. I've been working there for 4 weeks (as of today!) and I do enjoy it. Plus, free yoga whenever I want is pretty awesome.
Mid month I went out with friends all week. I did an after work happy hour with a former coworker, Friday lunch with another former coworker, had one of the best blates in a while, celebrated a friend's 32nd birthday, hit the beach... Again, and had Stewart's for the first time.
Back in June I finally used the massage gift card that I got for Christmas. Of course they also roped me into becoming a member. It's not cheap but I'm looking on the bright side - every month I get an hour long massage, or for an extra $10, a facial.
I took Oreo to get updated rabies shots so that I could take him for his "spa" appointment. At the risk of being shamed as a horrible pet owner I'm going to admit that my cats have never once been professionally groomed. I brush them frequently and I clip their nails myself. This summer the shedding has been out of control. Needless to say, Oreo wasn't too thrilled with me.
Since summer isn't summer unless you're at the Jersey Shore, I met up with a friend for a beach day.
Why not finish the month the way it started, right? I spent the entire last week of July down the shore in Seaside with the fam. I've said it before and I'll say it until I'm blue, Little Miss is my most favorite person in the whole Universe.
The best thing about this is that when you give a 4 year old a drink umbrella, she does the only logical thing with it. That's also a picture of my "second kneecap" because the ocean made me its bitch from jump. Also, the Jersey Shore house. Yes, the one from TV. ::insert eye roll emoji here::
All in all, July was excellent! Here's to having an amazing August! What did you do this month?
