A Look at my August

After reading through some fellow bloggers' August posts, I thought I would share a little about my own August.

6 Things That Happened In August:

  1. I bought a new car.
  2. I became an Independent PartyLite Consultant.
  3. I finally painted the guest bath and hallway in my home.
  4. I met some of my neighbors for the first time (even though we’ve been in the house since the very end of March).
  5. We had our call with the wedding coordinator in Jamaica to finalize our big day!
  6. George and I participated in the Sacramento Color Run. It was a lot of fun! If it comes to your area, I highly recommend it.

5 New Obsessions In August

  1. Homemade iced coffee. I’ve started making coffee iced cubes and making my own iced coffees to take with me for the day. It’s so easy! Not to mention way cheaper than going to a coffee shop. Thank you Pinterest.
  2. Pinterest – I’ve been a member of Pinterest for a long time. I was really obsessed with it when I first joined, but became tired of it. Now I’m back into it again.
  3. Ho Hey by the Lumineers and Anna Sun by Walk the Moon – my two new favorite songs.
  4. The Round Table dinner buffet. I don’t think I’ve ever gone to their dinner buffet before, just the lunch, and we went two weeks in a row. I love those cinnamon twists!!!
  5. The Lorac Unzipped Palette – I used it almost daily after purchasing it.

3 Things I Discovered

  1. Starting your own business is much harder than I thought it would be. I have wonderful support from my family and my fiancĂ©, but not as much in other areas. Turns out I’m a chicken and have a very hard time talking to strangers about PartyLite. One of my goals for September is to talk to at least 5-10 people and get their contact information. It’s not enough to hand them a tealight and a brochure and walk away. Speaking of which, if anyone wants a coupon code to purchase 2 dozen tealights for $6 each, let me know!
  2. As much as I loved my Mustang, I was ready for a change. It makes me feel old realizing that I’m “more mature” but I still have plenty of living to do! I have big plans for this life of mine and I intend to follow through with them.
  3. Although I was born and raised a San Francisco 49er fan, my  fiancĂ© and his brother are slowly converting me into a Chicago Bears fan. I'm torn. I'm just going to be a fan of both!

5 Things I’m Looking Forward To In September

  1. The start of football season!
  2. Fall weather.
  3. Doing my first PartyLite shows. I'm very nervous.
  4. Finally having my Mother’s Day Tea with my mom.
  5. Matchbox Twenty’s new album, North!!! Released 9/4/2012.
