Hello August!

Wow, July went by fast.

Here are some things I’m looking forward to in August:

  • August 1-4: My uncle & his wife & their new baby are coming to visit! They live near Washington DC & we usually only see them once a year or so (usually around the holidays).  I haven’t met my new cousin yet, so its super exciting!
  • Their visit also coincides with one of the biggest festivals in our area, the Speidie Fest & Balloon Rally.  The Speidie Fest celebrates our local specialty, the speidie.  Speidies are cubed marinated meat eaten as subs or sandwiches.  We have concerts every day (B+ usually).  This year Night Ranger & LeAnn Rimes are coming.  Also, Tobey from Pretty Little Liars.  I’m excited to be running in the festival 5k this too.  It’s going to be a family affair, as my mom, brother, uncle, & aunt are all running it too.
  • August 11 will be a busy day.  I’m running another 5k.  That race will benefit my coach’s daughter who has cancer.  After the race, my brother & I will be going to see Blake Shelton.
  • The rest of the month will be crazy busy with work.  My entire company does the corporate catering at a big golf tournament.  Tim McGraw is playing a show on the first night.  Right after the golf tournament (I’m talking the day after!), my unit heads an hour north to do the backstage catering & riders for all of our state fair grandstand performers.  Its all very fun but also tiring.

I think its all going to pass in a whirlwind!  & then it will be September!
