June Update

Well well well….look who decided to get off her ass and write a blog post.  🙂
Sorry friends.  But the summer kicked into gear and I went into total blog hibernation mode.  I had so much going on in the first few weeks of the summer and little desire to pop out any more blog posts after my last one.  
But it’s the last week of June and I’m about to embark on my big trip for the summer so I wanted to kick things into gear again.   
So lets get this party started with a major update.  Here’s what’s been happening the last few weeks:
[one]  I attended a fantastic blogging workshop, called Perform on Pinterest.  It was informative y’all.  I have a full review post scheduled so I’m not gonna give a ton of details right now.  But it involved getting a ton of new information on Pinterest, getting some hands on work in with the experts (Meg from Meg O. on the Go and Channing and Michelle from Mom’s Without Answers), bonding with my fellow Houston bloggers and some pretty sweet swag.  Including a private shopping party and very generous gift card courtesy of Kendra Scott.

[two] A much needed week with my parents in the Southwest.  We visited family and friends in Albuquerque, NM and spent a relaxing few days at our family cabin in Ruidoso, NM.  Even though it was much hotter than we expected it nice to disconnect a little and just enjoy the mountains and each other.  

[three] Picked up my brand new couch that I am totally in love with.  After deciding to abandon my vintage couch refurbishment project.  (Which you can read about here).  I began to scour Craigslist and furniture stores for a couch.  And thankfully I found the PERFECT one on the app OfferUp.  I picked it up on Sunday it is gorgeous.  I paid just the right amount for it and it is in perfect condition. I’m seriously in love with it.  
[four] Got some excellent reading time in.  This is basically what I did the entire time we were at our cabin in the mountains! I was able to finish three of the books on my to-read list and really enjoyed each them.  Review coming soon!
[five] I got to spend some much needed time with my bestie Ashley and my niece Lacey.  I cannot get over how big she has gotten.  Thank goodness for FaceTime y’all because she came right to me when they came to pick me up for our putting and when asked, “Where’s Aunt Kac?” She can point right at me!  It’s the best feeling ever! 
[six] Got confirmation that on Washington DC trip, which kicks off tomorrow, we will be going into the WHITE HOUSE!!!! I am so excited for this trip y’all.  It’s going to be the first family vacation we’ve taken in years and getting to go inside the White House with my family is just the icing on the cake.  I cannot wait to take off bright and early tomorrow morning!  Be sure to follow me on Snapchat (Kalady88) and Instagram (just click the icon under my picture) to follow along on the trip! 
Well there ya have it.  That’s pretty much what’s been happening with me in the last two weeks.  I promise to be a much better blogger once I get back from my DC trip.  Plus I’ll have a ton of fun things to blog about!
Remember to follow along on my social media outlets to catch all the fun times we’re having in our nation’s capitol! 🙂

  1. It looked like you had the best time on your trip out west! We're headed to Albuquerque at the end of September/beginning of October, so I'd love some recs! And hooray for getting lots of reading done! That's exactly what you're supposed to do on relaxing trips in the country! And hooray for getting invites to go into the White House! I can't wait to follow along and see what all you do in DC!
