July Events a Day at a Time
It’s been a super fun challenge to journal throughout the month with a sentence every day!! Since this month is my husband’s birthday month, you might see a theme towards the middle of July!! He is an ice cream fanatic!! In fact, there’s a funny story to go with that fact! For his 50th birthday some years ago, I gave him the gift of 50 days of ice cream. It was such a success that he filed for an extension and ended up with 60 days!! And he still isn’t sick of it!! Any other ice cream lovers out there??
So back to the matter at hand. The month of July is presented below from my standpoint!!
7/1 -Our LA Weekend was such a blast and you can read about the fun & friends in the blog post!
7/2-The Fierce 50 were able to shop at Chicos before the store opened! This is my co-hort in crime, Lesley, who is a fabulous singer also!!
7/3-Back from vacation means a trip to the grocery store!!
7/4-Happy 4th!! This meant making ice cream in our household (one of my summer bucket list items!)!
7/5-Back to the real world of blogging and putting things away after our trip!!
7/6-I was over at mom’s taking blog photos and helping her sign up for Shop.co, so she could take advantage of the free shipping for a month!!
7/7-The epitome of summer is enjoying a good read on the back porch. You just don’t see the glass of wine in the photo that was also part of this scene!
7/9-Lunches made for the week with the help of my fabulous sous chef (that’s Rob)!!
7/10- It’s the small things that make me feel like I’ve accomplished something. We finally added the magnetic door stoppers to the door coming in from our garage. Notice we had to buy 2 colors to match each door!!
7/11-I joined a #ThriftedChicStyleChallenge on Instagram, and it was serendipitous that Jeanne & I went thrifting at Deju Blue in Cherry Creek!! Yes we did buy a couple of things!! 🙂 I’m one of the hosts of the next challenge for August. If you’re interested, there are prizes and everything!!
7/12-Middle of the month means knitting with my friends, and in the summer we get to hang out and knit in Kay’s backyard paradise!
7/13-We were invited to join friends at a wine tasting at The Wild Women Wine store in downtown Denver!!
7/14-Celebrating both Nancy’s (the 60+ model on the blog) and Rob’s (my husband and male model) birthday tonight with brats and Dairy Queen ice cream cake!!!
7/15-And you thought the celebration was over?? Well, ha, today it was ice cream at Bonnie Brae’s, a local ice cream store!!
7/16–Getting prepared for the week by roasting a lemon/garlic turkey and making some watermelon gazpacho!! That means leftovers all week!!
7/17- Spookie is showing off her new collar!!
7/18-Today was an ELDOA and massage day. If you haven’t heard of ELDOA, it’s all about stretching the spine!!
7/19-Meeting up with other women, is truly so delightful to me!! Today I met Dawn, from Plummage50, and we did a little dance for my Instagram stories!!
7/20-It’s my sweetie’s 57th birthday!! Of course, we’ve been celebrating all month, but tonight I took him out to a “ooh la la” dinner!!
7/21-Some of us locals, celebrated our 25th year of graduation from dental school!!
7/22-I received my first Rocksbox jewelry box! I’ll be posting a blog post about it soon, so keep your eyes peeled (and see the IG post here)!
7/23-Like I’ve said, Rob’s birthday is celebrated all month long, so today was a trip to Oceanaire for happy hour!!
7/24-I’ve been working on a ton of alterations for a client, my husband and myself!! If anyone ever says they never need alterations, then I bet their clothes don’t fit well…ha ha!!
7/25-We hadn’t been to a concert at Red Rocks in ages, but seeing the 2 Cellos tonight was amazing!!
7/26-Another birthday in the neighborhood included a Qdoba bar!! Happy Birthday Jean!
7/27-Just call me Uber Jodie, as I transported the neighbors to the airport for their Icelandic adventure!
7/28-If you love thrifting and are on Instagram, then join us for this challenge in August where you can even win prizes!!
7/29-Haircut day for both Rob & I!! Who doesn’t love getting their hair cut and styled??
7/30-Every one needs an unwind day, and we try hard to make Sundays this kind of day for us! However, we did cut up delicious Colorado peaches to freeze.
7/31-It was a great day to catch up on some blogging, chores and napping!! What about you??
Feel free to join in by sharing some of your July events with me in the comments!! I love the interaction and responses!! Or you ever have the urge to open an Instagram account, I’d be happy to help you!! It’s easy, and it’s another form of social media based more on pretty photos as opposed to words!!
And if you like this idea, feel free to join in with the project for next month. Just say so in the comments, and I’ll pass you off to the leader, Leslie! If you have been keeping this journal for the month of July, then feel free to link up your post with the blue frog below!! The more, the merrier!!
