First, before I left for NJ, I placed my very first full size order from Birchbox. I got the Befine Exfoliating Cleanser and the Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer.
There are still a few things on my wish list that I've tried from Birchbox, but these were my top two. I got a 20% off coupon emailed to me from Birchbox, plus I had 100 points to "spend", so I figured there was no better time to take the plunge and get these full size products! Because of the discounts I used, the exfoliant was nearly free!
On Father's Day, we got a new furniture set for the deck.
It had been bare since last summer when we had the deck replaced, so we (Josh in particular) was so happy to finally have a place to hang out on the deck again! We debated between a seating set like this one, or a dining set, and we are so glad we decided on a seating set. It's the Martha Stewart Miramar II set from Home Depot, in case you're interested. The online pictures do not do it justice though, and the price was discounted in the store for $599. It's so comfortable and we just love it!
Just for fun, here it is at night with all the lights on (those are from Target).
You might have seen this on my Facebook page (this is the seller's pic). I scored it for $20 on Craigslist! I plan on putting it in the kitchen after I paint it. I can't wait to get started!!!
This past Saturday was my friend Amanda's bridal shower. It was a great success and I think she really enjoyed it! I had fun planning it with her Matron of Honor, Angela and her friend Erin. They are such sweet girls!

Thanks Erin and Andrea for letting me swipe your pics!!
Well, I think that's about it for now! I hope to be back to a more regular blogging schedule soon. Thanks for being patient...this month has been crazy!
I hope you all enjoy the short work week. Do you have any plans for the 4th?!
