If you remember these were my goals I wrote about earlier this month, things like finding a church, taking the kids to the beach, etc…. Yeah…about those. Totally FAILED on all counts. It seems like August just got away from us. The kids came home from “camp grandma” around August 4th. Then it was time for meet the teacher, shop for school supplies, trips to their dads, and boom – school started. Wait, what?
So I have some done planning for our family photos. If planning constitutes looking at pinterest for outfit and posing ideas. We will have to plan for a Sunday afternoon when Allison is free to take the photos, and when we (of course) don’t have baseball. Yes,it is time for that again – but we did have most of August off from that. Even better is that our games today aren’t until 1 & 3ish. I get to sleep in (should my body’s internal alarm clock allow me to!).
Patrick and I were supposed to take our anniversary trip last weekend, but we postponed it until after Labor Day. Cheaper hotels that way. He has let me do some planning for this trip, and mainly I have used pinterest again. I found a list of “100 free things to do in Charleston” once, and its all things we had planned to do anyway. For example – the battery, waterfront and the market. All things I LOVE and he does too. We had also talked about going to the Firefly Distillery and Charleston Tea Plantation, which are both actually free. Firefly has a tasting available, and of course stuff for sale. Same with the tea plantation. I am excited about seeing both, since they are more “adult’ things and something we wouldn’t necessarily do with the kids with us.
I do have some exciting things coming up on the blog, reviews from Mabel’s Labels, One Direction Makeup and Harvest Snaps. I am going to try to get back into a posting routine now that I have a good long lunch break everyday, and Patrick gave me the laptop back!
Goodbye for now!
