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!
