It's already August! I can't believe the summer is about to end. I remember looking back when I was in school and hoping the summer wouldn't fly by quite so fast! I'm not going to lie . . . I'm looking forward to fall . . . cooler temps, football games, pretty colors. Sounds so wonderful, doesn't it?
Here's what we've been doing and what we're planning . . .
As far as this past weekend, we enjoyed going up to Brigham City and watching a play: Around the World in 80 Days. Our friend Katie was the director. I learned a lot about her theater background. She was even Brigham City Peach Queen! Who knew?!? While we were there, we stopped at Maddox for lunch. I ate so much but it was so good! We also killed some time playing games. I played the WORST game of Settlers of Catan in my life. So bad, in fact, that I up and left the game in the middle of it. There was no hope for me getting close, and the longer I played, the more angry I became! It also didn't help that Benj was just as competative as I was and therefore had no mercy! While they finished up I "cooled off" outside. Dramatic, I know. Settlers has been put on probation until further notice. Joe and Katie, however, were excellent company!
As far as the present day goes, I am waiting in anticipation for a family friend who was induced last night. Her baby has a heart condition where the left side of his heart didn't develop. As soon as he's born, he'll be monitored carefully and will have to have immediate surgery. I admire the strength and faith of Aimee and Hardy, and I wish them all the best for little Jackson. If you'd like to check out their story, check out their blog.
Benj is officially done with school until the 25th, so we're going to do one last mini vacation up to Park City with my side of the family. Benj and I will go up for the weekend and enjoy the comforts of the Marriot Resort. We hope to try to the Alpine Slide and Zipline too! I hope to try out my new swimming suit I got from the Layers Clothing Sale last weekend. If you haven't experienced this sale, you've got to go! They have way cute stuff. However, this outlet sale was crazy! I got there right when it opened along with 500 other girls. It seems the mediums were gone the fastest! I still left with some cute stuff. I think I'll try it later in the day next time so it isn't so crowded. Here's what the swimming suit looks like on the left. The only difference is I got different bottoms that look like a miniskirt. The top was $15 and the bottoms were $10. I saved 75%!
Anyway, hope everyone enjoys their last month of summer!
