July Overview

Once again, I am behind on posting on my blog. 

We just have been crazy busy again this month. We closed on an investment property and have been busy working there in the evenings. We are in full demolition and paint everything mode!

For some reason this month we have been playing a lot of board games in our free time. I think I might try and host a game night with friends soon. It's so much fun playing! 

I am sad to admit the hubby finally defeated me in a game of Scrabble... I couldn't believe it, but the world is right again and I have beat him every game since.

P.S. Don't you love my vintage Scrabble board I got forever ago from my Great Grandma? It's a turntable, so you can turn the board to face you each turn!

The Hubby and I went on an overnight date trip to a local hotel/casino for a little mini vacation. Oh I just love his funny faces!

Our local drive-in movie theatre closed a few years ago. Well they opened back up this summer! So we made a trip out there and watched The Planet of the Apes second movie. It was very good, but it is so hard to watch dark movies at the drive-in!

Our nephew is almost 4 months old. My Hubby coaches golf and my brother-in-law love to play, so naturally he will need his own beginner golf clubs. I just happened to get them for $3.99 and couldn't pass them up, so they will be waiting on him for his 1st Birthday! 

It's almost time for school to start again. I don't think the Hubby is looking forward to it, but I think it'll be good to get into routine again. However, I don't think the girls will be thrilled to have him gone all day again. They like having company home during the day!

Just look at those faces!

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!

Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
