July's Past

Since this blog was just born in late 2011, I've been recapping the highlights of the past 5 years each month. If you're newer and want to catch up you can see: JanFebMarch, AprilMay and June:)

July 2008
Got to stand by my sister's side and see her marry the guy of her dreams! On a sidenote, I will always remember this month as the last time I had Taco Bell. Yes, I'm serious. I got the worst case of what I believe was food poisoning about a week before her wedding. Actually, that 24 hours could be a post all in itself but I'll spare you ;)


July 2009
Jared won us 3-day passes to Kings Island amusement park PLUS Spirit Song, the Christian music festival. Probably one of the BEST weekends of our lives, no joke… it was so much fun! 

Jared then won the grand prize of getting to hang out with and ride a rollercoaster with Christian singer Jeremy Camp- such a nice guy! And WOW, was I skinny!!

July 2010
Went to an awesome balloon-glow at a local park for the 4th of July weekend.
Met up with some of my best college girlfriends for a fun day at the outlets. Miss those girls so much!
July 2011
Shot my first gun. In a dress, nonetheless! ;)

The fab 4 attended their first Reds game together!
July 2012
Attended my cousin's baby shower just weeks before we'd meet her perfect little man. He's the first great-grandbaby in the family!!

Also tried froyo for the first time ever. And haven't had it since, lol!
July 2013
Here we are! I've already visited a brand new state (Arkansas) and we're about to kick off another crazy season of working in the football world.

What memorable July's have you had?

  4. I've actually only had froyo once too and haven't gone back - sure we have them on every freaking corner but eh just too pricey is one of the reasons.

  23. Omg, how did you never have froyo before July 2012?! And never had it since?! Froyo was a staple during my college days... the only reason you ate lunch in the cafeteria instead of the Bison or Larison was for the froyo. And I LOVE the Kiwi Yogurt place that is just down the street from us... vanilla froyo with fresh strawberries is my fav!
