"I Place My Hope"

(by Ellie Holcomb) 



So y'all probably noticed that I didn't post last week. I really thought I'd have more time to blog this summer, but it's not happening at all! One good thing about the 100 Happy Days challenge that I'm doing on Instagram is that I've been better at taking pictures of things. Even though they're on my phone & not my real camera, they're better than nothing! So if you keep up with me on IG, then you've seen a bit of what I've been up to. ü

Now for some of those pics, some I haven't posted there, and a few more details about the past couple of weeks...

My friend Heather was in town, so we met up at Tornado Burger :)


Kristin picked up this amazing Indian tunic for me!

{I'm so ready to go back!!}

I got a haircut and took a couple of selfies with Mal:



Baby girl went to camp in Colorado!



And while she was at camp Cody got to hang out with his friend Isaac one day & went to a water park with Alex, Austin, and Elijah another day!



We also went to the mall one day. He's outgrowing his clothes so fast these days, so he needed a few things that he can wear to church. How handsome is this prep?! :)


We both got a pair of Sperry's because of a little BOGO deal. He thought it was funny that my casual shoes are his dressy ones! ü


Clyde brought his beautiful baby girl to work one day, and I got to hang out with her for a little while! :)


My sweet boy & I went on a date one night while his sister was gone ♥

{We split an appetizer so we could have a trio of pazookies!}

Baby girl got home from camp on the Fourth of July! I had planned on posting pictures right now, but there are too many for this post so I'll tell you about it another day. I might even schedule it when I'm finished with this post. We'll see... :)

Speaking of my baby girl, we went to the mall the day after she got back from camp!


That night, we went to the first of two surprise parties two nights in a row! Carrie turned 40:


And Blake turned 30:


His party was a superhero theme. We didn't have anything, so we made up a couple of superheroes and made our own shirts! Meet the Aiminator and B3 (Big Bad Butch):


I met up with my small group girls at Julie & Nicole's on Monday night, and we played Cranium. It was so much fun (even though Grace & I didn't win)!


We got snowballs for Cody's half-birthday (except for Elly...she got nachos because she doesn't like cold stuff)!



I went to lunch with Kim yesterday, and we went to some antique shops. We didn't buy anything, but it was fun to look around! I want a door like the one behind us in this picture...


And today I changed up a few things in my flower beds up front. I had some little yellow lantanas that weren't growing as quickly as I'd like for them to, so I moved a few and planted some bigger red and yellow ones in their place:


I guess that's all! We're still waiting on approval for the scans. I'll keep y'all posted. I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend. I really do plan on posting again soon... ♥
