So, what have we been up to? Here's the month of July, that flew by::
- We had a very nice cook-out at our house with friends for the 4th of July. I didn't get any pictures but it was a good time. I always enjoy having people over and relaxing with great friends. Plus, having cook-outs with my friends is great because my friends are some of the best cooks! We definitely ate plenty of good food.
- I went to Grundy to see my parents and sister for the weekend. Also, I went to a shower for my best friend, Ali, that was thrown by some of the ladies of the church that Ali and I both attended growing up. My mom was on of the hostesses so my sister and I helped her with some of the setting up.
My sister and were put in charge of setting up the hostess gift (pack-and-play) . I was pretty proud of Meredith and I. It doesn't look that hard to set it up but, looks are deceiving.
And here she is with her proud grandmother, Mimi, and Baby Hamrick's proud great-grandmother.
Oh, and my present to Baby Hamrick....
Can you guess what I got the future Hokie?
Ali looked very cute at her shower and had a good time.
Matt and I had a nice weekend in Grundy. It's always good to get home to the Grundy and we hadn't been there since Feb. so it was definitely time to pay a visit.
- We celebrated Matt's mom's birthday in July. I made a lemonade pie and used the recipe from the Southern Living magazine. We had fun celebrating her birthday and I hope that you had a great day, Debbie!
- Our final weekend in July was a big fun-filled weekend celebrating Debbie's retirement and since I think I actually have pictures, I'll do a separate post.
So, now it's middle of August and our weekends continue to be filled with fun. I used to work some weekends but that is now a vague memory from the past. Since I took this new job this winter, I must admit, that I have adjusted quickly to filling my weekends with a bunch of fun things. I do not miss working at all during the weekends and was happy to give up any days that I had off during the week to getting weekends off. :-)
