My best friend from California showed up at my door with her daughter not long after that! I was so happy I burst into tears. I hadn't seen her much in the last 6 months and was missing her terribly. It was wonderful to get to see how much her daughter has grown and she even took her first steps at my house! Can you tell I'm a proud auntie ;-) Hopefully I'll get to see her next month when I'm in California.
Next was a staycation at a local resort. Truman and I love a good staycation and we love good food. This mixed them both with The Tucson 23, a mexican food extravaganza at a local resort. It was a great time and we got a room that overlooked the city with a lovely little patio. A wonderful way to spend a night if you ask me. Then something that I have been looking forward to for months, my sister, BIL and nieces came to visit!!!! I was so excited to see them! I see them on FaceTime all the time but it's so different to get to actually see them in person and talk and hang out! It was a blast and they brought the first of the monsoon with them too. Thanks for that! This past weekend was the Fourth of July and we got to attend a couple of celebrations. First at my cousins where we brought the fireworks! My husband is Asian afterall ;-) I'm glad he did too since I didn't see any other fireworks at all that weekend. The next day we spent a relaxing night with some friends in a pool with great food. It was a nice way to top off the weekend.
In craft news I am obsessed with planners! I have been happily gathering and creating until my hearts content. Maybe it's because I like a list and it's such a pretty and inspiring way to keep them. That's what I've been mostly doing though I am still going strong on the pocket letter swap and I just adore my partner! She shares my name so how could I not?! Tomorrow brings a craft night at my house with friends and I'm ridiculously excited!!! I hope it's the first of many! I must be off to finish the preparations...
