If someone asked you how your August went, what would you say? It’s so hard to remember specific days and events when every day goes by in a flash, right? So I joined forces with a couple of other bloggers to keep track of the month of August a sentence (and some photos) at a time. There’s a link up below if you’d like to see the other’s participating in this project, and a huge thanks for Leslie for organizing us!!
8/1- I was so lucky to win a $50 gift card from Cuddy in July’s #thriftedchicstylechallenge on Instagram!! And today I received the shirt I ordered!!
8/2- Rob & I enjoyed Wine Wednesday at Finley’s Pub with Cathy & Jeanne!!
8/3- Ice cream in August is always a good idea, right?
8/4- Our favorite activity is joining up with friends to try out new places to eat, so we visited the new View House in downtown Littleton!! We’ll definitely be back as their happy hour is a great deal!!
8/5- We met with friends for dinner to discuss an upcoming Alaskan cruise to celebrate both mom’s birthdays next year!! Any advice for those of you who have been on an Alaskan cruise??
8/6- Lazy day with a wonderful meal at our neighbors for dinner that was homemade enchiladas and margaritas!!
8/7- It was book club night and if you saw my Instagram Stories, you could hear that we really do talk about the book!!
8/8-I’m trying to grow my Instagram following (@Jtouchofstyle), so I’ve been spending a ton of time on this social media site!! The IG stories are really fun, but my thumbs are getting tired…LOL!
8/9-Knit day with my knitting buddies!!
8/10- Rob took the day off work so we could see the one man show called “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish, and I’m in Therapy.” It wasn’t our favorite, but it’s always nice to spend time together.
8/11- It was Jodie Uber again with a trip to the airport to pick up our neighbors from their Iceland trip even though the neighbor was sick and had to stay another day, we did fetch their friends!!
8/12- The 3 of us had some body painting done at a picnic. That’s Nancy (the 60+ model) with the flowers on her arm, my mom (the 70+ model) with the ladybug on her shin, and myself (the 50+ model) with the butterfly on my shoulder.
8/13-It was a lazy day reading on the porch, and getting our food ready for the week! We’re having breakfast burritos for lunches and pizza for dinners!!
8/14-It was the start of our #thriftedchicstylechallenge for August on Instagram. If you love thrifting and are on Instagram, it’s usually running the middle of the month!!
8/16-Off to Home Depot to get some tile for our kitchen back splash….. #newprojectfun
8/17- The question of the day should be how many times do we need to go to the home improvement store for each project??? Today it was a trip to Lowes!!!
8/18- This is the project that has had us visiting Home Depot and Lowes so much lately!! You’ll be able to read more about it in the upcoming Bucket List post next month!!
8/19-And just so we’d have something to keep us busy for the next couple of weeks, we went to AFW to get some new office furniture!!
8/20- And while shopping for office furniture yesterday, I fell in love with this fuzzy ottoman. I named her Trudy the Tribble!!
8/21-Eclipse day and I spent most of it at mom’s house altering some tops for a neighbor!!
8/22-There was a ton of blogging, photo editing and overall computer work going on today (along with potato chip eating–LOL)
8/23- We enjoyed a dinner out with our friends (and the man who fabulous did our back splash above)! Obviously I need longer arms for a better selfie!
8/24-I had a migraine today which hasn’t happened in many months….ugh
8/25-One of my blogging friends Instagram account was hacked, so we joined forces to try to help her out by getting her followers back since she had to create a new account. If you are on Instagram, I would ask that you follow her too!!
8/26-When your breakfast burrito is enough for both your husband and you for 2 days!! Thanks Toast in Littleton!!
8/27-We traveled up to Boulder to spend time with my cousin and her family as a memorial to my Aunt Nancy who passed away 2 months ago. You can see some of the baubles I brought back in memory of her!
8/28-The best thing about retirement? Being able to have lunch with friends! I was lunching with Dawn and ran into my knitting buddy, Dianna!
8/29-I’m helping a friend try to find a good home for their fabulous dog, Tucker, since the kids have left and he needs more time with people. He’s better as a one pet dog, and if you’re interested let me know!!
8/30-Off to visit the dentist to have my teeth cleaned!!!
