June, the first official month of summer. It was hot, busy, and fun. Here’s my June recap:
Traveled: We went to Seattle for my sister-in-law’s fiance’s birthday which was way fun. We went to dinner and drinks – Fremont Brewing was really cool. I also traveled to Cheney to watch my bestie graduate from Eastern Washington University.
Read: I’m reading a book called “Best Friends Forever” right now. It’s a good summer read, so far!
Ate & Drank: BBQ chicken salad, Popsicle champagne, cherries, hard cider, pulled pork, and so many different BBQ delicacies. Can I just say, I love summer food? Eating out I had the best burgers in Leavenworth, my favorite salted caramel ice cream, tacos, and the best raspberry margaritas in town. Seriously. SO good.
Friends: Merry stayed with us for a few nights, which is always a blast. We are so easy to entertain when we’re together, and usually end up having full on dance parties in the kitchen. Laughter always ensues. We also went out for Mexican food and margaritas with our friends Alec and Holly.
Family: I watched my little brother’s middle school graduation, *tear*. Also had lots of family time between birthdays and father’s day. I got to see my cousin Richy as well, who I haven’t seen in forever!
Exercise: I haven’t made it on a summer hike yet, but it’s definitely in the works. Exercise this month has consisted of friendly games of basketball with my little brother and step-dad, as well as chores. (What, they count!)
Celebrate: National Donut Day, a birthday party for my nephew, and a birthday party for my niece, Merry’s graduation party, Father’s Day, and our 3 year wedding anniversary.
Mani of the Month: I’ve had grey nails, nude nails, and these bright pink “Barbie” nails, as I like to call them:)
Smiles: Pizza party at work, an awesome final bible study celebration with some great ladies from work, meeting a coworker’s brand new baby girl, a good work review, mini golf, taffy, lounging in the pool with a westie in my lap, and much more.
Heard: I adore One Republic and am really loving “If That’s What You Wanted” and “I Lived”. Seriously, so good. I also really like “Brother” by Needtobreathe, and “Shut up and Dance” by Walk the Moon.
Watched: I finished Gilmore Girls! Whoo! I think I’ll be watching it again… :) Also, I watched Casablanca finally. LOVED IT! “Here’s looking at you, kid.” We watched Gone Girl with Ben Affleck. It was intriguing, but I was not a fan of how it ended at all.
June, you were fab. In fact, I may have separation anxiety tomorrow when July kicks you to the curb. Here’s hoping July will be just as great! Cheers!
