Favorite Things July

Today I am linking up with Ashley for Favorite things– July Edition!  

1- Wor's Birthday!

Wor had his birthday mid-month and we had his family down for a visit, had a Star Trek birthday party for him and he took his actual birthday off work and decided he wanted to go to Marbles with Lily on his day off– what an awesome dad!  I spent a lot of time and effort putting together his party and it really was fun, even if everything didn't go exactly as planned.  I will do a more detailed post on it soon.

2- Busch Gardens

Last week my mom and brothers were heading to Busch Gardens for a few days and I decided to tag along with Lily.  My mom and brothers were awesome helping me out with a toddler at an amusement park in the heat.  My mom made sure I got on all the roller-coasters.  Everyone had fun doing all the little kid activities with Lily who totally loved riding anything and everything we would let her on.  I squished in many tiny ride seats with Lily but it was totally worth it to see her sweet little face light up and gabber about everything going on around her.  

3- NC Blogger Buzz

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend a blogger meet-up hosted by Ashley and Angela at Clotheshound Boutique in Raleigh.  I was able to meet some awesome local bloggers who were all sweet and friendly.  I was happy to sponsor some yummy treats and I was excited that they were received so well!  It was a really great experience for me and I hope I can participate next time!

Thanks Kai's Kookies,  The Little Canary Shop, Booop, and Zailove for sponsoring great giveaways and swag bags!


  1. What a fun month :) I've always wanted to attend a blogger meet-up but have never found one in my area - it looks like you had tons of fun! Happy last day of July!!

  2. Busch Gardens is so fun. I used to go every year when I was growing up. I really should go visit any amusement park since I haven't gone to any in years.

  3. He really is a great dad spending his birthday at Marbles! How fun!

    I haven't been to Busch Gardens in forever...I really want to go soon!
