alright… my last real blog post was how i had 7 days off.. and i was going to accomplish a lot 🙂 well, i'm happy to report I DID!! I had the perfect mix of beach days.. and a couple rainy days in there so i could work on class samples for this fall.
lets get started with this recap ;)
you can see here mister harley loved having his mommy home…. in the first picture he is in the bathroom sink.. watching me get ready in the morning.. and then the next pictures is him chilling out.. and sprawling out on my crafty space while i was working on a VERY important project! (more deets on that in september ;))
josie came down as a last minute plan.. to get in a class with cheryl mezzetti at the store, a beach day, and some fun on main street :)
vjt and i got together for a beach day… ;)
i have started the routine of doing my walk again…… feels good… i also started with zumba again… I WILL NEVER take a month off from that again.. it pretty much kicked my BUTT
I headed up to newburyport to meet with melys and josie…. on my way i stopped at the apple store to get the new iphone 🙂 It is soooo much hotter off cape, i'm spoiled living on my lil island!! we cooled off in landons kiddy pool.. had a yummy lunch in downtown newburyport… and then headed into boston for a tori amos concert. Most of you know how obsessed i am with her!! I was excited when my girls mentioned going together… as always tori was amazing… but nothing compared to when she played "cool on your island" (i have linked to another live version of it.. NOT from the night i saw it)… i know she played it just for me! The song means a lot to me… the lyrics spoke LOUDLY to me… especially a couple summers ago, and it was very touching to hear it live for the first time!! I DO have some video taken with my phone from the concert, and will post that soon!
enjoying a day with my girlies on plum island, in newburyport…. landon put a new spin on a beach day for auntie jenny.. but it was still fun 😉 notice our 3 beach bags together 😉 and how landon picked auntie jenny's super cute towel to sit on!! :)
i got my craft on at the summer studio crop…. i was missing 2 of my girls.. steph and stacy, but both had "life changing" instances pop up… i missed them a ton.. but janet, shelley and EJ were a ton of fun to crop with too! (i'll post my layouts i got done in a few days)
and then to top it all off… i finally finished a "cape cod" sign for the store…. which has been in the works and on my to-do list for a loooooooooong time… ( 3 years long!!)
AND… if your even still reading this forever loooong post.. i'm happy to report that i have booked my vacation!! most of you know i was trying to go away at some point this year for my 30th… i originally wanted to go with a few of my girls…. but that didn't work out …. lyndsay, who is also on the a muse team, needed someone to goto mexico with her 🙂 i jumped at the chance…. I CAN NOT WAIT!!! dec 8-15th whooo hooo i will be beachside and poolside here
