The 4th week of summer….really? I can’t believe time is just flying by! Here is what we have been up to.
You just can’t go wrong with a week that starts off with ice cream soda day! I grabbed both vanilla and chocolate blue bell along with coke, dr. pepper and reddi whip and we all had ourselves some yummy dessert.
Carly and I both had chocolate and dr. pepper and it was yum. Did you know real ice cream soda is vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and real soda water? I totally did not until googling.
We are totally working on celebrating by making ordinary summer days EXTRA-ordinary. Check out the Celebrating Summer post for more info on how to make summer a little more fun every single day!
Y’all…I almost felt guilty when I read this and though instantly of my little brother! I had to send to him immediately.
On Wednesday we celebrated Dutch Buddy’s 2nd birthday! I shared lots of pictures of him from the last 2 years for Show & Tell Tuesday. You can see all the fun from his birthday in Dog Gone Favorites. I promise it was PAWS-atively the most fun and easiest party I’ve every hosted.
On Thursday morning I could not find my wedding ring when I got ready to go to work. I remembered taking it off in the kitchen (I thought) while talking to my mom but I seriously was a basket case after looking for an hour in every place I could imagine. Finally I decided I needed to go through the trash and y’all….how lucky did I get to find it laying like this on top of a plate in the trash can. I was so relieved!
Dutch was the calendar dog for June at his vets office so I made him take a picture when I picked him up from playcare. He was so embarassed can’t you tell?!!
Friday it was lunch with these girls. My friend Ginny was in town for the premier of Independence Day – Resurgence which her son had a role in. Kind of cool!!
This girl and I headed on out to the lake on Friday night for some live music!
And our table happened to be right next to this girl’s table. Jordan asked me if I had ever been to see Texas Unlimited Band (TUB)….I had to laugh because they have totally been around since my college days! Keith finally made it too and we had a great time dancing the night away.
Saturday Dillon had 7 on 7 and it was thankfully overcast and not too bad under a tent. All his biggest fans were there! Some of them were even standing on their tip toes as to not look any shorter but my lips are sealed. 🙂
We skipped over to Jordan’s apartment pool in between and I finally decided a swimsuit wasn’t the end of the world. If all the world could see me at this angle only. Ha!
Back at the field for one more game Sunday morning. These boys are all changing so quickly!!
My friend Holly’s daughter made me these fun pom poms and I was so excited to use them in my decorations! You definitely want to check back for a little Red, White and Blue fun on tomorrow!
Then this popped up in my Timehop. I’ve been on Facebook for 9 years and this post from last summer was the most popular ever! It was a pretty huge day for our family. So Grateful for Dreams!
We will be roadtrippin this week and Carly was uber excited to grab the tools at Michaels so she can make her own pom poms!
She even taught Keith and he claimed he was an expert after one try! I just loved this so much. Moments like these mean so much!
I have been wanting to try Living Proof shampoo and conditioner after receiving the dry shampoo sample to try in my Birchbox. I was not excited about the price but then I scored big when I got to the counter and I actually had $61 in credit at Ulta! Score!!
Then I got to end my Sunday like this! My favorite way, watching my man grill up some goodness. We even made homemade Tiger Dill sauce with this recipe and it was just like identical.
Don’t forget to come back on Tuesday and share your Favorite Summer Salad as Katy and I host the Spiel the Beans Linkup!
Wishing you all a super week!
