Art, Beats Lyrics Prep + Catching up at Home

Trying to gather my thoughts over the past month or two.  It's been a whirlwind but when is it not?

We spent a good amount of time preparing for ABL and setting up at the warehouse.  It was super hot and nasty.  I think we spent many 10 hour days in there just dirty and sweaty.  It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work.  The end result of all the setup was worth it.

We did get to spend some time with family out in North Carolina which was pretty awesome.  We normally don't even had more than a few hours in and out on our trips but we actually had a day or two here and there which was so nice to have a moment to relax with them and catch up.  We didn't schedule any meetings and it was so nice to NOT be running around trying to fit everything in.

Catching up at home before we head out again, we had a ton of car issues!  First with Mat and his ticket, then the Versa getting in an accident.  It was deemed a total loss.  It was bittersweet to see it go because that was my first car since moving away from Hawaii and it has been through many miles with so many memories between us but it was time.  Then Costco car wash ripped off my roof racks and scratched my car pretty bad so now just waiting for them to get back to us about fixing our car!  When it rains, it pours.

Things are looking up though..I did get to start a new chapter with work and I'm super excited.  I have been working for an awesome lady on the days I wasn't working at my regular job at the warehouse..and she asked me to work only for her..so I made my mind up a few weeks ago to take her up on it and this week was my last day at the warehouse!  So excited to be working for her only and being able to work from home is an added plus.  It works out with my travels which will make it easier to be mobile if we need to.  I get to learn so many new things with her and it's addicting!  So, for every crazy obstacle we face, we always have a light at the end of the tunnel.  Trying to figure out why things happen.  I truly believe everything happens for a reason and we just have to wait and see why what happens happens..until then, just keep looking ahead for a sign =)

We did have a datenight for once.  We have had no time to do anything but our friend got us tickets to The Taste of LA again this year.  We got to go on a surprise date last year when he surprised me with it and he wanted to do it again this year.  It was so hot and the food vendors weren't nearly as good as last year but it was so much fun just doing something on our own without the kids and not work related.  We got to see friends out there and it was nice to have a moment of adulting LOL.

We spent the last of the summer before school starts taking the boys skating to fun places.  The Juice Magazine party was so fun.  The boys got to skate with some awesome kids and we kept thinking how cool skate families are.  Most normal parents would not let their kids stay out late skating on a school night with loud crazy people everywhere and tons of long hair boys!
