It’s been about a month since we’ve posted anything. No other reason than we’ve been busy little bees. A little recap:
Took a one-day trip to Shreveport to meet with a banker.
Went to a networking happy hour at The Rustic.
Enjoyed a concert at The Dallas Arboretum with some friends, food trucks and a few bottles of wine.
Attended a luncheon for Metrocrest Services called Seasons of Service honoring our wonderful and dedicated volunteers.
Embarrassed myself with awesomely awkward elevator speeches at a “speed networking” event.
Wrecked my truck but luckily no one was injured.
Passed out candy at Kyle & Lacy’s house in Shreveport for Halloween (a full blog on that to come).
Watched LA Tech beat Western Kentucky for homecoming in Ruston.
Helped Jess make a carrot cake cheesecake for a coworker’s birthday.
Bailed on going to the First Aid Kit concert because I was too exhausted from all the above.
Worked out while Jess volunteered at a booth at the Dallas Market Center for the Arboretum’s Women’s Council.
Toured the 12 Days of Christmas exhibit at the Arboretum (a full blog on that to come as well).
Had a doctor’s appointment to check in on Emerson Kate. She’s apparently as tall as she’s going to get, now she just “fills out” over the next several months. Jess is 28 weeks and 1 day.
And, finally, sat down to write a quick blog to remind myself of all we’ve been doing. There are always going to be really busy months for us. Fall is usually the busiest, but it’s also a lot of fun to be able to do all these things. Minus wrecking the truck; that sucked. Despite it, I try not to sweat the small stuff. I’m thankful for the blessings in our lives.
I use the phrase “burning the candle at both ends” quite a bit, and I’d say that’s an accurate description of the last 30 days. Tonight we celebrate our friends’ daughter Ellie’s 2nd birthday party and watch Chris & Brandy become man and wife. We’re going to need a longer candle.
