June Happenings

Hello friends! Seems like once a month is about all I can give you this year. I just don't have a lot to share that I haven't already shared on Instagram. I know a couple of you are not on Instagram though so I hope you enjoy catching up. Here are a few June highlights.

June started out with my nephew Jacob's high school graduation. He will be playing lacrosse in Maryland and we are all very proud of him.


Miranda and I went to a bridal tea hosted by our wedding coordinator. She had lots of decorations for us to look at and decide if we want to use for the wedding. She had several things that we will be using. Here is just a few of the things she has. We will be using the 3-tiered table to hold the mismatched glassware we are using.


I cleaned my craft room up really well. It had been neglected at the end of the school year.


I celebrated my 49th birthday a few times with different friends and family. My friend Jeana made my favorite cake...she makes it for me every year! And yes, it tastes every bit as good as it looks! We also celebrated my son's 23rd birthday, my mama's birthday, and my husband Joey's birthday this month too. Juse is a busy month for our family.


I treated myself to a new crossbody purse for my birthday. I have been trying to be more mindful of purchasing fair trade items when I can. I don't purchase leather if I can help it either which also limits my options. I found this bag on Amazon by a company called Sherpani and I love it. It is made in the US so it is fair trade and an added bonus is the fact that it is made from recycled water bottles. 
Win! Win! 


I also bought an air fryer. I haven't used it too much yet, but I am hoping to use it more in July.


We celebrated my nephew Jacob's graduation a week after the ceremony at his favorite Japanese Steakhouse. It was a nice lunch out with family and the food was delish!


I have enjoyed catching up on some things around the house. I changed the saying on my chalkboard since it still had a spring saying on it. 


I'm enjoying my bohemian redo in the kitchen as well. 


I went to see Miranda again and of course since she's so close to so many beautiful beaches, we had to visit another one. This time we went to Grayton Beach and it did not disappoint. It was overcast and we both got sunburned though! Ouch!



Here's my beautiful Miranda...:)


After the beach, we walked around the quaint little town. Such a pretty place. 


This little bakery was adorable and so good! I definitely want to go back someday!



I have been reading more. I ordered this book and have been really loving it. It is so interesting to learn more about the toxins & chemicals in our environment, the products we use, and foods we eat that build up inside our bodies and cause so much sickness and damage to our systems. 


We celebrated Father's Day with a nice supper at my parent's house and I got to see my cousin's baby, Clarissa...she's a doll! 
Here she is with my sister.


I attended a couple different trainings for school. They were both really good.


I've also been working out as often as possible. Sadie has too....lol!


I needed to get this ready to post because I leave in the morning for a girl's weekend with my sister and friends. I am so looking forward to it. 

I hope this finds you doing well. I am hoping to blog about my weekend and another trip I have coming up next week with Joey. 

Thanks for stopping by and as always...take care.

  4. What a busy life you lead. I'm happy that you had time to relax at the beach and those beach photos were very creative :) Your birthday cake looks amazing. Happy Birthday! I'm doing Weight Watches, but if I were near that cake . . . I would certainly be having a delicious, but bad diet day, LOL.
    Before I say goodbye, I do have to say, "What a lovely butterfly you make:)
