The Not-So-Final Countdown

So, last week, I saw/read a 5-4-3-2-1 post on Clean Eating Chelsey.  I thought it would be a great thing for us to do together, because although we are sisters and can be very similar, we have a LOT that makes us different as well.  Here we go!

Summer Recap's September 1st.  Although lots of good things come in September, the big bummer about it is that summer is pretty much over.  So, before I get too sad about the end of the best season of the year, I'm going to highlight some awesome things that happened this summer!

1. Summer started with a fantastic sister-date to a comedy club.

2. I bowled it up with some friends...although I could never get a strike when I needed it!

3. I had a great time at my cousin's wedding.

4. We celebrated for Ashley's bridal shower.

5. I did all kinds of fun crafts (like this one) with one of my favorite people on Earth.

6. I met one of my running goals--a 5K with no walking!  (Not sure if I'm ready for the world to see the hot mess I was after this no picture for now, haha)  And...decided to make my next goal a half marathon.

7. I played some softball, got quite dirty, and laughed...a lot!  First place season!

8. We did a whole bunch of cooking (New Recipe Night rocks!)...and sometimes the failures were the most fun!

9. We celebrated some more wedding stuff with Ashley's bachelorette party.

Wow...that was a busy three months!  Now, the final weekend of summer is upon us.  Make it a great one!  I know I will...
