Here are some snapshots of our summer outside of the fun planned out days we've had.
I love it when she sits still enough for me to do her hair!
Nana is a sucker for these kiddos and insisted Emmy needed her own lunchbox when we were buying Bryce's school supplies.
We got slurpees on 7-11.
Jason got new tires for his truck.
I had surgery.
After a visit to my doctor, an ultrasound of my neck, a visit to an ENT, and an MRI of my neck, I was diagnosed with a thyroglossal duct cyst that needed to come out.
I was well taken care of by friends and family. From meals, flowers, visits, and lots of treats, I made it through and I'm continuing to heal just fine!
I hate that it took having surgery to get flowers, but I am enjoying fresh flowers all over the house!
My New Year's resolution was to be intentional this year. I can honestly say that I have been more intentional with my time and I have stuck to my plan of reading through the Bible in a year. I think the day of my surgery marked day 200 and it didn't slow me down!
While I was at home recovering, the kids were having tons of fun. Jason took Bryce and Chase to see Planes 2 on Sunday. Bryce has been counting down the days to this movie since we first saw the cutout board the last time we were at the theater.
My good friend Donna and I have close birthdays so we got together Wednesday night for dinner to celebrate.
Even though we said no gifts, she gave me this super cute towel. Can't wait to take it to the beach next week!
We had a very rainy day and evening tonight so we settled in for game night after dinner. We played Yahtzee and UNO before deciding we needed dessert.
We hit up Sonic for milkshakes, ice cream, and a slush.
My friend Beth brought me a Nerd Slush after my surgery and now I'm kind of obsessed!
I tried to hold out for the books on the waiting list at the library and I got too impatient so I went ahead and got them so I could have some beach reads next week!
Do you read Big Mama or Boo Mama? If not, you're really missing out! These two ladies are just hilarious and both have written their own books ( Sparkly Green Earrings, The Antelope in the Living Room and A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet). And, they're going to be in Charlotte, NC in November. Jason's sister texted me today to see if I wanted to go. YES!! We both agree this is the closest they'll ever get to us so we're planning a girls trip!!! If anyone is interested in joining us, let me know!
