Throw Back (to last week)

Well hello there, August! Where has the summer gone?! With August comes the farewell to summer (sad face), but it also means I’m one month closer to Steve getting home (yay)! I’ve never been one to wish summer away, and I’m not fully there yet, but I am excited for September. The summer has been wonderful, but this fall is full of exciting things: my hubby’s return (technically it’ll still be “summer”, but kids will be back in school so I call that “fall”), a half marathon, my best friend’s wedding(!), a full marathon, Frye boots, college football, cooler running temps, and hopefully some other little surprises.

Before I go jumping into fall, I want to throw us back to my last two weeks at the beach. Last you heard, I was being a mopey zoo lion (Cards Against Humanity, anyone??), complaining about my non-beach-loving baby. I think that you must have sent good vibes my way because Graham made a complete 180!

We really had a great couple of weeks! The first, as you know, was with family. The second was with college friends (the SCMAS). I would love to talk more about this week and the shenanigans that went on, but I fear you would think we were weird πŸ™‚ I guess all that really needs to be said is that we had a BLAST and everyone was close to tears when we had to say goodbye.

Some (blog appropriate) highlights from the beach:

As much fun as we had…I missed my bed and my running buddies.

And Graham missed his couch.

  1. What a cutie and what a summer you’ve had. I love the 2nd to last pic with the pup. Isn’t it so fun to see them get along? Wish we could bring the babes in a few weeks to the bachelorette so they could meet… but not really! Looking forward to it!

    • Haha I’m not going to know what to do being baby-free at the beach! Just ignore my tent, kiddie pool and sand tools πŸ˜‰ Can’t wait! (we’ll have to have a baby meet and greet another time!)
