The Little Things - July 2014

It’s Friday! And it’s time to chat about July happiness!

{In case you are new and curious, you can refer to my first little things post to see why I started the series – it involves a story about me yelling at cars. It’s good stuff, I tell you.}

Let’s do this!

The Little Things - July 2014

A July 4th potluck with friends. I told you we love potlucks! And the weather was just gorgeous. Cool, breezy, sunny and one of our neighbors set off legit fireworks … like right down the street. So festive! Although it was a little nutty how big they were for something in a backyard.

Successfully surprising one of our friends with a giant cake for her 30th birthday. And then getting to eat said cake. Peanut butter + chocolate = amazingggg.

Garden cucumber deliveries from our sweet neighbors and their two little girls. These bad boys were consumed almost immediately.

Another potluck. Yup, obsessed. This time it was lots of appetizers and there may have been some old school music playing on a CD player (CDs!). Including one ridiculous sing-along to Barbie Girl. Please tell me you remember that song??

A visit from my parents. And a trip to the local baseball stadium. I insisted we get covered seats. Which turned out to be a great decision since it decided to downpour. Hard core.

A visit from my in-laws. And another trip to the local baseball stadium. We sat in the front row on the first base line right by where the pitchers warmed up. I was slightly terrified that a ball was going to smack me in the face. It didn’t – happy happy!

My favorite little beagle, as always. She just makes me smile every single day.

A new postcard that I framed and hung up in our foyer. Policies that are strictly enforced at our house. My husband likes to drag me in front of the sign when I get all attitude-like with him. Guess that’s my own fault for buying it!

So tell me about your month! And remember – per the sign, no frowning! Only hugs, smiles and warm fuzzy feelings. Happy weekend friends!
