Review Extravaganza-Part 3

The transition from summer to fall is a tricky one. Like astronauts returning from space. We had to re-enter the atmosphere of school carefully, so the sudden change in pressure wouldn’t kill us. –The Wonder Years

This part of the year was definitely the most fun. I did have some bouts of loneliness, but overall we had a very busy, very fun summer.

July:

I became a terrible dog mom.


We walked across the Golden Gate Bridge.

I had to say goodbye to Monica and Chandler for a whole year. Miss them both terribly!

I learned how to make Cuban pulled pork sandwiches. Try this recipe, you will thank me later!

I also shot a hand gun for the first time, and much to my surprise, I enjoyed it!

August:

I threw myself into earning money online to help contribute to our down payment. I was featured on Janette’s Friend to Friend Match Up with my Bloggy BFF Impulsive Addict. That was pretty kick ass!  We spent a lot of free time house hunting. We saw doozies like the house with the fireplace big enough for me to live in:

I celebrated with the Wolf Pack for Geeky’s Bachelorette Party.

and we took our annual trip to Carmel. We rode bikes, kayaked, and enjoyed an amazing trip with Match’s family.

September:

Match and I survived our first year of marriage and can no longer claim we’re newlyweds. Sigh.

I also wrote this sappy little post and included a wedding video, just in case you really want to soak up the sappiness.

I introduced the world to  Triple B.

I turned 28 and celebrated a very mellow birthday. But it was more than made up for by the white water rafting trip that Match took me on.

and the month ended on a bang with Geeky’s beautiful wedding.

Wow, I can’t believe we did all that in just three months!

    Video would play on my iPad but will be back to watch it as I love things like that.

    That fireplace is insane! I have never shot a gun, I have held one though.
    Thanks so much for linking up, I have your point recorded.

    WHAT? I thought you were saving up money for our meet-up?

    Oh wait. That was me. I forgot.

    And I TOTALLY forgot to add in that I was featured with you on Janette’s page! CRAP! I will be honest…I didn’t read through all my old posts like I should have. I was running out of time! I waited until late last night to throw something together.

    Looking at that picture of White Water Rafting makes me want to go!

    Thanks for linking up my bloggy bestie! If I don’t talk to you, I hope you have a great Christmas! xoxo

    That pork looks so good!

    And your wedding video is so sweet! I’m feeling extra sappy tonight–you both were such a cute couple, I mean ARE such a cute couple cause you’re still together and all. OK, it’s much too late for me to be commenting.

    Have a very merry Christmas!

Your comments make my day!
