Life Update + Weekend Recap

Hello and happy August! Things have been pretty quiet over here on the blog. I've been soaking in all things Summer and also doing some behind the scenes work on the blog so new posts were put on hold for a bit. Although it was a nice little break, I'm excited to be back with an update on what we've been up to. 

Between using the gym and our visits to the pool, we're definitely getting our money's worth from the HOA fees we have to pay. While at the pool we had a visit from this little guy who must have gotten turned around. 

I stopped using my curling iron awhile ago and have been using a straightener to curl my hair. It's taken a little bit of practice but I'm pretty pleased with the final look.

My best friend's dad passed away unexpectedly the week after the fourth of July. Her kids came over to play a few times while they were in town and it was controlled chaos of the best kind:)  It's so special watching our kids grow up together. 

I talked about searching for painted rocks earlier this summer and Jack is still just as obsessed with finding and hiding them. We went over to his friend Clark's house and painted some of our own to hide. I looked up some ideas on Pinterest because I have literally zero artistic ability. 

Gorgeous Summer sunsets. 

Every Summer we set the tent up in the living room for the boys "camp" and make S'Mores. It's something they look forward to every year and it saves me from having to sleep outside with bugs. 

Slowly but surely our garden's been producing vegetables including one nice big green pepper. I know a lot of you are probably laughing at our little garden, but this is pretty good for us. 

And that brings us to this past weekend which technically started on Wednesday with a trip to Des Moines, Iowa. If you've been following me on Instagram you know that Ben made it to the Jr. Olympics for track where he ran the 1500m. It's still crazy to me that he actually made it and we are so freaking proud of him. Full post coming later this week!

On Friday Ben and I went to Six Flags in St. Louis and I managed to not throw up after riding 4 back to back spinning rides. I'd call that a success. 

And like the fools that we are, we braved Target on tax free weekend, the week before school starts, to get school supplies. While we made it out alive, it wasn't my best idea. 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Linking up with Biana for Weekending.
