I'm a summer girl through and through. Give me sun, hot days, sand, and surf! This summer was more than I could have ever expected! I made it trough my 35th birthday and met my celebrity crush without fainting!

My husband threw me the best surprise party for my 35th birthday! He got my entire family and my best friend, her husband, and little boy out from Pennsylvania for a really great pool party and week of fun. And I had NO.CLUE. I was so shocked and surprised. I was so excited to show my brother and his family around as they were  here for the first time. It was so sad and so hard to say goodbye to everyone.

I got to spend a decent amount of time with my friend Meghan and her little monster, and even got put on baby sitting duty once or twice!

Nick and I went to the Western & Southern Open for the fifth summer in the row! It's such a great end of the summer trip with 3 days out in the sun. I also met my favorite tennis player and celeb crush, Andy Murray!

I dragged Nick to the Grand Rapids Polish Festival so I could get some delicious, homemade, authentic pierogies!

And Nick and I went on a Mexican and mini golf date this past weekend to close out the summer!

  1. Such an incredible summer! I love how all out your husband went for your 35th birthday!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I think having a summer birthday would naturally make you love it more! (Though I have a winter one and hate winter :)
    I've been loving Four Weddings but holy cow Love Island. I can't do it. I watched like 6 episodes last year and ugh. So.much.narcissism.

  3. Such a good summer - looks like one of the best! I had no idea Grand Rapids had a Polish festival.... and it was over the summer that I'm usually in Michigan (when it occurs). I really have to go there next time! Mmmm pierogi...
