1. I got a Silhouette machine for my birthday!
It cuts paper, vinyl, and iron-ons.
It's a really fun thing to play with.
Here's my first project:
That's a prettty Mac!

2. Ben is playing softball with his company.
A bunch of our friends went with me to his game the other night.
It was fun!
Ben had 2 great hits, but the team lost.
Maybe next time, CCB!

3. Ben's grandmother, Grandma AJ (Alice Jean), came to visit!
We are so blessed to have such amazing grandparents!

4. I got the new iPhone and LOVE it!
It takes great pictures and videos.
It's so fun taking quick videos of Alice and emailing them to Ben at work.
This is from Grandma AJ's 80th birthday party:
This picture would have been super blurry with my old phone.
I love technology. :)

5. I'm making progress with my summer list.

Things to do this summer-

1. Make a homemade mojito

2. Go to the driving range

3. Have a Slush Puppie

4. Go to a garage sale

5. Get a treat from the ice cream truck

6. Go to the farmer's market

7. Turn 31

8. Go to the drive-in

9. Watch a sunset

10. Run the Jack Quinns on a Tuesday night--I'm scratching this.
Instead my goal is to complete Jillian Michael's 30-day Shred.
(I just finished day 8. Wish me luck. I think Jillian is trying to kill me.)
With it being a bajillion degrees everyday and with Alice's nap times, it's been hard finding time to run.
This workout is doable for me.
