Monthly Catch-Up

August is here and it’s time to catch up! We’re sitting down for a cup of coffee and dishing all about the month of July, including a party at Target, a team trip to In-N-Out and karaoke and so much more!

Countdown to Fall

Happy August girlfriends! We are just a pumpkin spice latte away from fall – my absolute favorite season! Who else is over the moon excited to deck their porch out with fall decor? I literally just made my first fall 2019 purchase at Home Goods last week. SO excited!
In the meantime, I am kicking back up our monthly re-cap as another way to stay in touch with you each month! I share so much of my personal life on Instagram, but many of those moments disappear in 24 hours. I thought this would be such a great way for us to sit down, catch up, and feel like we’re on a coffee date! Here’s what went down around here in July!

Target Party

Earlier this month, we threw an EPIC party at Target. I have been working on it with Kim and Molly for months and Molly even flew in from Washington for the fun! We got to collaborate with some of our favorite shops, and I am so excited to share the photos with you soon!

Karaoke Party

Calling all my karaoke friends?! We always like to have a good time! Before the party, we had a triple, double-date night. Ha! We went to karaoke and In-N-Out with our guys and sang our hearts out. You better believe there was some Britney, Mandy Moore and NSync included in that playlist! ;)

Mrs. Grossman’s Sticker Factory

I visited Mrs Grossman’s sticker factory last week, and it was a dream! They’re actually closing their tours after 20 years (more on their page here), and it was absolutely fate that I got to tour it just in the knick of time.They literally announced closure the night before I went on the tour. Crazy!

Quote Cookies

Our quote cookies series is going strong on Instagram! I started the series because desserts and quotes are our highest engaged content, so I thought, why not marry the two? And so far, they’ve been a hit! It’s been so fun to put these together, and Home Goods even took note of the last one recently! ;) I can’t wait to share what’s up my sleeve next. Let me know if you have any fun ideas for upcoming cookies!

Family Vacation

We also finally snuck out for a vacation which NEVER happens – believe it or not. Blogging seems more glamorous than it is IRL sometimes. ;) We went to Windsor to visit family and caught time at the beach! I want to frame this picture of Andy and Claire. Time is flying and she’s nearing out of the toddler phase. How did that happen?!

That’s a wrap for this month, sister! I can’t wait to sit down with you next month and tell you all about what happened in August. We’re working on giving the website a refresh with our friend Lindsay from Writefully Simple, and we’re planning to launch an exclusive website for the Best Friends For Frosting podcast soon! I’ve also been contemplating kicking it up a notch on VIDEO content. I have a call with the YouTube headquarters to discuss strategy and figure out content I can actually maintain – it’s so easy for me to get in over my head with fun ideas! ;) In the meantime, we’re planning a back to school party, a Halloween party and lots and lots of fun fall content! Think porch decor, DIYs, recipes, and more, so stay tuned!
Chat with you soon!
