Sunday Lately :: Week 32

Aug 9, 2015

Good morning!  This week’s Sunday Lately is coming to you from Northern Michigan!  I’ve been visiting with my Dad and Sister (and their collective families) all weekend in the Mitten State.   I promised to give a shoutout to my brother-in-law, Nick. :: Hi Nick!! ::  Don’t forget to link up below and share what’s going on with you, Lately.

Doing. Lots of coffee drinking this weekend.  Traveling seriously kicks my butt.  Add being out on the boat for a full day, driving to Michigan (the eight+ hours that it takes, one way) and just general energy spent while having tons of fun with family….and I’m exhausted.  But a good exhausted.

Appreciating. The fact that I can actually hop in a car and drive to most of my family member’s houses at this point.  We are all spread out across multiple states, but we can drive to almost all of them in one day’s time.  Obviously, my West Coast family and my brother in Colorado don’t count in this statement.  Maybe one day we can convince everyone to move close.  Or someone can develop a teleporting machine?

Designing. Lots of Lego items.  WOOT!  Lou’s birthday party is coming up and I’ve been working on some super cute Lego-themed goodies.  I always want to ruin the surprise for everything and share them ahead of time…but I’ll do my best to keep them on lockdown until the party actually happens.  Maybe.  I’ll probably crack under excitement and share them early anyway.

Humming. A bunch of random dance songs that we played last night.  More specifically, things like “YMCA” and “Gangnam Style”.  The three youngest in the house (my brother, son and niece) were busting a move and having a pretty epic dance party during Louis’ early birthday party.  It was hysterical and adorable.  And mostly, it was all sorts of awesome.

Expecting. A butt load of work once we get back.  We are making the trek home today and Monday starts our last week before Louis is back in school.  Which means that we will be in bootcamp to get ourselves into a schedule, unlike our summer schedule of “do what we want, when we want”.  It will require a transition period, that’s for sure.
