8/27 - Caught up on homework and grading.
8/28 - Long walk with Nick and Callie after school. Date night at Chili's - AWESOME special...1 appetizer, 2 entrees, and dessert for $20! I also had MULTIPLE diet cokes. They were much needed after a long week! Bought a DVD player for our room, and then we watched 12 Rounds and fell asleep!

Callie promised that she would be a "good girl" from now on. We shook on it, and Nick took a picture!
We also watched "The Closer" season finale. I am sad because I liked our Monday-night ritual.
8/25 - Lisa sent AWESOME blog - decor8 - which may become my new obsession! LOVE IT - and her: )

Mom came over ALL DAY one day during July, and we switched out old plates, cookie sheets, etc. for some of our wedding gifts. I could NOT have done it without her! Nick and I went through our closet around the same time, and we made $58 at Plato's Closet. Our clothes + old kitchen stuff = over $100 at Sandie's garage sale! Mom and Dad were nice enough to cart all our extra stuff away - I did not take anything back to our house!
Then, last Sunday and this Saturday, Dad made AWESOME shelves for us in the garage! We put the gifts that have been stacked in the dining room into tubs and put them on the shelves today - YAY! I even used the label maker to label each one and taped a photo of what is inside to make it easy to find what we are looking for! We are SO close to Nick being able to park in the garage with me!
I am SO thankful that my parents were willing to give us some of their time to help us organize! I feel a little bit less stressed because of all the progress we made!

I slacked BIG time on keeping up with my blog: ( I just went through my pictures, and I do have some photos to mark some of the more exciting moments of my summer!
The Thursday after we returned from our honeymoon, Nick and I went to the Royals v. Diamondbacks game with Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Lisa, Dave, Claire, Timmy, Paul, Diane, and Hayley for Grandpa's 80th birthday. Sarah was there, so she stopped by to say hello and snap a photo: )
Mom and her troupy for winning the March Madness tournament bracket! She followed President Obama's bracket!
Me and Nick at the Sandbar
I also spent some time this summer baking! I was able to use some of our wedding gifts to help me try out some recipes!
