One of the more fun updates that we have is that Will and I have joined a dance studio! We have been going for a few months and we are working on our tango, waltz and cha-cha. Its been a fun way for us to spend time together. With all three we are going through a bronze program, which means that we are past the basics but if we were to enter into a competition, we would be in the bottom rung of competitors. A fun thing about our studio is that occasionally they will do themed parties that we can get dressed up for. They recently had a Great Gatsby themed party and our costumes won first prize! I'm proud of that one because I didn't buy a single thing for either of our costumes, I just rummaged in our closet until I found stuff to use.
Our garden is still growing! We now have 8 bell peppers that are at least an inch wide, our kale plant is large enough for one salad, our tomato plant is about a foot and a half tall, and our avacado seed finally has roots(it was the first thing I planted but didn't do anything for months)!!!
Since I have time at home, I've spent a lot of time crafting. Right now I am currently trying to sew a cute but modest bathing suit. If its not a fail, I'll post pictures when I'm done. Today I also saved a thrifted bubble dress and turned it into a slightly more elegant a-line. I don't know what body type bubble dresses are supposed to flatter but I know they do not flatter my type. Another recent project has been to make my own laundry detergent...saw this project on pinterest and it's awesome! I probably have a years supply, it did not cost much to make and it cleans clothes really well. I've also been working really hard to lose weight and its paying off! I've lost about 12 pounds this summer....go me!
We also had the joy of spending the 4th of July weekend with Will's brother and his family...sadly the rain kept us from doing too much but we did get to go to 6 flags with them. I'm starting to feel a little to old to get on roller coasters, but we still had fun and it was good to spend time with some familiar faces.
