What I'm Reminiscing About

Our Wonderful Weekend on the Cape

Everything was perfect...so melancholy that it is over but it goes down as a tie for #1 as my favorite weekend all summer- it ties with our Wizard of Oz Weekend at the start of summer! :)


What I'm Loving

Snuggle time with Remi :)

What We've Been Up To

We enjoyed some of the Olympics- typically we love them and devour them- this year it just felt different-sigh


We said Goodbye to Father Brian- my favorite priest of all time

We enjoyed watching the girls in their Triple Threat Performances- some live action but mostly films this year-  a bit disappointing

Date Walks Have Continued....

as has time spent with the Soul Sisters

The girls were so excited to spend time with their Dance Idol Gabby


 and we enjoyed a date night while they were "hangin"

and Mama and Daddy enjoyed one golf tournament with besties this summer anyway

We loved watching the girls in the town's drama camp performance of Beauty And The Beast

Mama and Pidge enjoyed a cozy Friday night watching Beauty And The Beast while Diana enjoyed a sleepover and Daddy was at his gig

While Mama and Diana enjoyed the Annual Mom and Daughter Boogie Board Day...

Daddy and Pidge enjoyed the arcades :)

We got all of our dance shoes and dance attire for the year...and Mama got sewing!

We had a lot of fun while checking things off of our Summer List....S'mores?  Check!

Ice Cream Sundae Night?  Check!

Mama and Eva Time at the Park?  Check!

Diana completed two weeks of Dance Intensives- she worked really hard and had a blast!

The Dance Moms got together for a night of laughs...

We had a blast at Fenway watching the Sox smack the Orioles ;)

and we enjoyed another beautiful day at the lake courtesy of the McLains

Mama enjoyed another installment of Book Club- GREAT READ!

and Mama has been busy planning for the 10th Annual Blackout Cancer Game for Windham and all of the events that go on with that....excited to say we sold a record # of tee shirts this year so the game should be bigger than ever and ALL proceeds go to research and funding for Pediatric Cancer

We celebrated Papa Pete's 80th Birthday with a Surprise Weekend at The Cape!

and Diana started celebrating her birthday with some besties with nails and lunch on her actual bday! (Full Birthday post coming next week)

What I'm Dreading

A small procedure I have to have on Thursday...it should be quick but uncomfortable and nerve-wracking- can't wait for it to be over!

What I'm Working On

My Job, My Health, Getting Organized for the School Year and Blackout Cancer

What I'm Excited About

A Quiet and Cozy Friday Night...do I sound boring? old?  I DON'T CARE...ha!!  Cracking up!



What I'm Watching/Reading


Just Binged Encore!  (It's on Disney+) If you like musical theater you need to check it out!



Rob and I are watching Ted Lasso and that is cute and good for some laughs....love Jason Sudakis

and my two books for August were both great!


I read The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave


and The Hot Flash Club by Nancy Thayer

What I'm Listening To

It's funny...I am still loving the songs I shared last month AND Pidge has taken a liking to jazz music too so you will often hear jazz playing here in the house and in the car...she now says "Alexa, play jazz!" Kills me :)

What I'm Wearing


A little Venus

a little Red Sox



a little Amazon

and of course...a little Lilly!


What I'm Doing This Weekend

Celebrating Diana's Birthday with our Family



What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month


Our Blackout Cancer Game and Nutcracker Auditions for my Girls! 



What Else Is New? 


I think I covered it!

Sounds like a great month! I have to go read about your weekend at the Cape now as it sounds fantastic. Also, I too am looking forward to a quiet and cozy Friday night! Hahaha!!!

Maria Rineer said...

So much good stuff! I will try those chicken meatballs- always on the lookout for new ideas. Looking forward to the birthday recap- it looks like the girls had a blast.

Sounds like a really Good August. See you tomorrow for Monthly Musings.


Sunshine and Books said...

That is a great month! You are so good about making sure you get QT with all the people - family, hubs, friends! You’ve had some fun trips, too! Hooray for summer! Have a great rest of the week!

Joanne said...

I just read The Hot Flash club this week and picked up book #2 in the series today! It was such a cute story. Best of luck on your procedure.

Jennifer White said...

You all have had so much to celebrate! So fun! I read The Last Thing He Told me recently as well. I hope your procedure went well. Take it easy :) Have a great weekend.
