We’re Still Alive!

So, hello there? Is this thing still on?

Apparently, I haven’t posted in nearly three months. And really, content-wise, it’s more like four months. To top that off, I really haven’t kept up with anyone else’s blogs since late May either. Holy hell, I basically fell out of the blogosphere entirely. I went from moments to launching my new design to complete and utter radio silence. Eek!

I tried to start reading more (books) and spending more time with my husband, which really cut into my blogging time. Then sometime in early June, my friend held a Jamberry Nails online party and I became hopelessly addicted to all things Jamberry. The husband and I tried to adopt a TV show or two to watch (Fargo anyone? It freaks me out!) and I’m trying to enjoy as much summer weather as I can before it’s gone for another 7 months. Those are my excuses, anyway.

So what have we been up to lately?

  • Chasing the ice cream truck
  • Four days of Rock Fest last weekend
  • Went to the Northern Wisconsin State Fair
  • Went to lots of parades
  • A road-trip to look at lighthouses in Northern Minnesota
  • We went to a pancake breakfast at the fire station
  • Went to the groundbreaking for our new church AND new elementary school!
  • One of Mason’s good friends left our daycare
  • Spent a weekend away at my cousin’s wedding
  • Mason earned an orange belt in karate
  • We went to Trader’s Joes for the first time and want to go back again soooon
  • We helped rescue a kitty abandoned at Mason’s grandma’s
  • Lots of bike rides – (Mason regularly rides 3-5 miles with Daddy with NO training wheels)
  • 4th of July we spent the WHOLE DAY at the beach
  • A handful of playdates with friends
  • Celebrating TEN YEARS of Joe the Greyhound
  • Hosted a family cookout… in the rain
  • Flew kites
  • Said goodbye to our dear Katze kitty
  • We got rid of cable
  • Celebrated “Cousin” Liam’s 2nd birthday at the splash park
  • Played endless rounds of golf and baseball – via Mason rules of course
  • And much more

I’m totally kicking myself for not blogging for so long because it was a struggle to make this list – I so much LOVE having all the memories and photos at my fingertips like I have well documented for Mason’s first 2-3 years. I’m hoping to at least get some pictures up soon!

What do we have coming up?

  • More beach trips
  • A blog re-design (For real this time? Maybe? LOL)
  • Mason’s bff leaves to go to another school 🙁
  • Mason starting school in a little over a month O.M.G.
  • A big greyhound festival
  • a Jamberry Nails giveaway here on the blog
  • and hopefully many more days of sunshine
  • and a swift kick in the butt to keep me back on the blogging horse

So, how has your summer been? Whatcha been up to?!!? I’d LOVE to hear about it!

    Wow – you are having a busy summer!!! Don’t feel too bad about taking a break from blogging. I think it’s totally necessary to take a breather every now and then from the internet and focus on the people in front of you. The blogosphere has actually been pretty quiet this summer across the board.

    I just posted a similar summer update post. I hate being so behind with documenting memories, but I suppose it means we’re so busy making memories that we run out of time to blog? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 🙂

    PS- Mason is SO cute!!!
