Go USA!



Our house has Olympic fever! We have been watching non stop since the games began. Last night was definitely one of the most exciting moments of the games yet. Did you see the men's 400 meter relay? Holy cow, was that exciting! I was jumping, screaming and crying all at the same time!

Friday night Nik and I met up with a fellow Studio Calico friend Jen Armentrout at Archiver's to crop. Jen was in town visiting her family. Let me just say, Jen is an absolute sweetheart! The three of us had such a good time chatting and laughing. I did not get a thing done but I loved getting to know Jen better! If you don't know, Jen and some of her friends started a challenge blog, Method Playground. Go check them out! Wish I could share a picture of the three of us but none of them turned out. A really nice lady at the crop offered to take our pic but I knew we were in trouble when she said, "Why do you guys have these really fancy cameras?"

The rest of our weekend was spent playing outside and enjoying the freakishly cool weather. Yesterday, I put on a light jacket as the temps did not even reach 70 degrees. Is this August? I am sure our little taste of fall won't last long so we may as well enjoy it while we can. The AC is off and the windows are open! Enjoy your week!

I can't believe I missed the relay! We have been gone this weekend but I plan to get back on track. Aren't you loving this weather? We have had the same here. Hopefully it warms up today-the kids are having a party with water!

It has been gorgeous weather, I love it. I love fall. It was either watch the olympics or scrap, so I taped the olympics, how silly is that? Wish we could have seen you 3, next time!
