August is my Catch Up Post!
So, I started this blog to post monthly. Yeah, we all see how that's gone! Anyway, I'm here to play catch up.
Ok, I can't remember If I put it on here but I got my hair cut off a few months back. Not a trim, we're talking "cut"! 19 1/2 inches to be exact. It was time for a change. My hair is super thick and it was heavy! So I decided to donate it to "Locks of Love". I even got a thank you postcard back from them. I loved doing it, it really made me feel good.
Larry is no longer with Golden Corral here in Duncan. He's moved on to bigger and better things with a company called Ecolab.
His title is "Hospitality Territory Manger" or HTM for short. He has a list of about 100 hotels/nursing homes/schools/hospitals in the Oklahoma City area (Norman, Moore, OKC) that he travels to, sells products and troubleshoots facility equipment like washers, dryers, pH levels in pools and spas, etc. His company has been gracious to allow us to live in Duncan while he commutes to the city. He's been provided a company car, gas stipend, laptop/tablet, tons of products and tools. With his personality he's going to really succeed in his job. We're both really excited!
On a negative note, I've let my working out routine suck. I haven't gained but I haven't lost...I've totally plateaued! Boo! Oh well, I'm getting back into it slowly.
No babies yet :) However, I did purchase a Vera Bradley diaper bag. No worries, it's not really this tiny, LOL!
I found out they were discontinuing my pattern "Calypso". All of it is on sale and I just knew this was the diaper bag for me. So I bought it. Larry had no idea until the Fed Ex guy dropped it off after work! He saw the white Vera box and said "did you buy a purse?" and I said "well, it could be used as a purse!". He didn't freak or anything, he just said "that's cool, by the time we have kids you won't need diaper bags". Great. We'll get there some day. I guess. Slim chance. Don't hold your breath.
Right now we're just waiting to book our annual Jackson Family Disney World Vacation. By "family" I mean just him and me :) Can't wait! We're planning on going December 5th-11th as opposed to the past two years going the second week in November. Probably won't be too different though. By the time we get there, they've already decorated for Christmas and playing Christmas music. I love it! I can't imagine going in the summer. Yuck! Talk about irritating! Anyway, it's going to be great!
Summer is almost over. I can't wait for the crisp fall air, leaves changing color, hot cider, pumpkin spice candles, football & fireplaces. Sign me up!
