August 2017 Recap

What's New With You

Current Updates

If you've been watching the news, you probably already know that Hurricane Irma is heading her way to Florida. We are as prepared as can be with food, water, and other supplies but you just never know how strong it will be.

My heart still goes out for Houston. These devastating natural disasters happening back by back is just scary!

Having said that, K and I were supposed to board a cruise ship this Saturday heading to Cuba which has been cancelled. I'm not upset about it because no one wants to board a ship during a hurricane. The cruise line is going to refund us all our money but we got such a great deal for the trip and looking at the same cruise in future months is almost double the price so I bummed about that.

We will take the weather as it comes and have a weekend staying safe indoors, hopefully.  The whole point of this post was to link up with Kristen sharing my life's updates from August so let's get into that...

August Recap

Looking back at August, it's evident it was a fun-filled month. Most of my "adventures" I've already shared here on the blog in my weekend whereabouts but there's probably a tidbit or two that I didn't get around to mention.

We celebrated my favorite neighbor's birthday big kid style.

The following weekend we brunched for Kate's Birthday and I got to spend some time with Baby Fashionista.

I traveled to Denver with friends to catch a concert at Red Rocks Park and got to reconnect with my college roommate who now lives in Colorado.

Work-related: I hired a Marketing Intern to help out with some of my workload so that's been a huge relief.

My goddaughter keeps getting more adorable by the day. I just love her! The videos my Bestie sends me just melts my heart

We celebrated Lola's 3rd birthday on Tuesday. We bought her a special treat from Woof Gang Bakery as we've done every year for her birthday.

K and Lola share the same birthday so we spent Labor Day weekend celebrating K's birthday in and around Orlando at Universal Studios, brunching with friends, and throwing a BBQ/Pool party to end the long weekend.

And that's what's been new with me!


  1. I'm sorry that you had to miss your cruise and I hope you get to go another time. Hoping that you stay safe <3

    Thanks for linking up with us!

  2. Happy birthday to your husband and Lola!

    Big bummer losing the awesome deal on the cruise (didn't you have a weather-related cruise delay last year also?) but lord these disasters are frightening.

  3. You have had a fun month! I keep checking to see what Irma is doing, ugh! These hurricanes are spinning up back to back and it is crazy. I hope you guys stay safe!

  4. Thinking and praying for all of y'all in Florida! Having just gone through it all, I know how much it's going to suck, and we didn't even get the crazy winds and stuff from the actual hurricane! Hopefully Irma will move on quickly so that you can move on to all the fall things that you have planned! It looks like y'all had the best time in August, and hopefully September can live up to it!

  5. Sorry about that cruise, that really stinks. I hope you can reschedule and it isn't too much more. I am hoping for the best for Florida, this hurricane season needs to end stat!

  6. Oh man, I didn't know about that the cruise, so so sorry! At least you have all these sweet past month memories and more to be made after Irma gets her butt outta there. Praying for the best sweet friend!

  7. I was just thinking about you on my way into work this morning & how big of an impact Irma would have on you. Thinking about all of you in Florida. Looks like you had a great August.

  8. It's been hard dealing with hurricane Harvey. So many friends of mine have lost homes and are still flooded! My cousins live on the beach in west palm beach, so I'm keeping a close eye on Irma and praying for them! Stay safe!

  9. I've wanted to see a concert at Red Rocks forever. How cool! That's such a bummer about the cruise prices! Stay safe during Irma! I've got a lot of family in Florida and I just don't know how you guys do it! We're heading down there in October for a family reunion (and Universal!) and I'm worried about this intense hurricane season.

  10. I'm really hoping Irma leaves you well alone! Sounds like a month full of birthdays which is always fun.

    So annoying about the cruise, especially with the good deal. I hope that somehow it all works out for the best and you get to enjoy some time on the high seas :)

  11. What a fun month! I love that you called her Baby Fashionista :) I'm worried about Irma and keep thinking about all of you. I'm glad you're prepared- but you just never know and I'm hoping she takes a turn somewhere else and stays out of your path! Bummer about the cruise--hopefully some other prices come down so you can get a deal again! Have a good weekend- you Floridians are in my thoughts and prayers , xo!

  12. Love and prayers to you, sweet friend. Be safe!

  13. Sorry to hear about the cruise but its so much better to be safe than sorry. Sending prayers and love your way. Please stay safe.

  14. oh, such a bummer about the cruise, but you are right. better to be safe. speaking of - i hope you guys stay safe and irma doesn't do too much damage. it really is terrifying and so sad to have these things happen at all, let alone back to back.
    happy belated birthday to Lola and K!

  15. Bummer about the cruise but super glad irma calmed her tits before she got to you guys.

    How is Lola THREE!!!
