Yes Please

My new read is "Yes, Please" by Amy Poehler.  I recently rewatched all of Parks and Recreation for the third time, and every time I watch it I fall more in love with her as an actress.  I've only read a few chapters so far, but it's fun to get some behind the scenes info on one of my favorite shows, and her time on SNL!

We had our open house today!  The turn out was...not as great as we would have liked.  But we did sell a few things, and Devan and I had a lot of fun getting to know each other in the process.  Plus we had cheese and wine!

All in all a good day, and we made some fun plans for the future I am excited about!

So I've been working on losing weight this summer (story of my life really), but today I realized it's starting to pay off a bit!  Last summer this coral capris didn't fit me...today they did!  When I noticed they matched one of my Randy tees perfectly, I had to wear the outfit for the day.

Normally I think made up holidays are silly...but today is National Mac and Cheese Day!  Since that's my favorite food,  I couldn't resist.  Plus it made for a great engagement post in my VIP group.  People really love their mac and cheese!

Y'all.  I joined Snapchat today.  I went live in my VIP group to ask them what their favorite social media was outside of Facebook.  Overwhelmingly the response was Snapchat.  I have to admit, so far I don't get it.  I don't find the app intuitive, and I don't get the appeal of disappearing photos. 

They did have this awesome filter though.

We are busy this week getting ready for our joint Open House on Sunday.  The other consultant we are working with has a sister who does graphic design, and she made this adorable flyer!

Wear A Dress Tuesday #26

I need to return some books to the library this morning, so we decided to take pictures on the square outside the library.  I was a little self-conscious about it as a ton of moms and kids were streaming in for a special event the library was having.  But I went for it anyway and even had some fun!

I didn't get any pictures taken today as we spent most of the day in the car returning my parents from their European vacation.  So instead, I'll leave you with this bonus picture of Oliver eating a burger yesterday:

I'm not sure he got any in his mouth, but in all fairness, the burgers were "rub on your face" delicious.

The Cups Song

We had to go back to the Magnuson's today to finish up some work on our secret project, and say goodbye to Elly who is leaving for basic on Wednesday (ahhhhhhh I don't wanna!).  After dinner the girls started singing the cup song, then had to actually get out the cups and do the routine.  I was impressed with how well they knew it!

We are staying with some friends this weekend, who hosted a LLR party for us.  But the most exciting part was....they  have a new puppy!  He is only 10 weeks old and is so stinking adorable.

I mean, how adorable.  His name is River, and he was super duper soft.  It was fun to hang out with him all weekend!
