I realized that the last month and a half have been very busy and that I haven’t been doing very well with keeping up with my crazy life blog post in addition to my coupon savings blog post. So, here is a a quick update of what we have done since the middle of May and I will hopefully find time to share more and some pictures in future posts.
May – During the last week of May the girls and I visited my family, Steve joined us Friday afternoon, and had a whirlwind time with celebrations. My mom was an elementary school secretary for 24 years and officially retired the end of June. The school had a retirement party for her and the other staff members who were retiring at the end of the school year. That same week we had a bridal shower for my soon-to-be sister-in-law, and a family birthday party to celebrate Megan’s second birthday.
June – We had a family day with Megan on her actual birthday. Steve took the day off and we got pictures taken, enjoyed lunch together at California Pizza Kitchen, and went out after naptime for bowling and finished the day off with dinner and ice cream at Friendly’s.
Steve and I were able to add a trip for just the two of us to the end of a business trip he had in London. He left a few days before me and then I left the girls in very capable hands and flew over to meet him. We had a great time together exploring the city together and enjoying some time just the two of us before baby #3 arrives in August. We even happened to get a glimpse of Queen Elizabeth during a parade in her honor.
July – My brother (who is 12 years younger than me) got married on Saturday. The girls were flower girls and my sister and I helped with coordinating the wedding. It was a whirlwind few days with last minute preparations, calming nerves, and making sure everything was taken care of. The girls did a good job as the flower girls, they were not perfect angels, but they definitely provided some comic relief.
The next thing I have “on my plate” is a reception for a missionary family at my church Sunday evening. After that the next plan of attack is getting ready for “Baby Brother”. I have to finish getting the girls settled in their new room, get his room ready for him, and start getting the house ready for guests. I also need to start thinking about things like packing a hospital bag and picking out a real name for the little guy.
These are just the highlights of the things that have been keeping me busy. Like I have said before my life is always crazy, just some times are crazier than others. :)
