Saturday morning I got up early, but not to run. Heather, Shannon, Jen and I met up at 7am to continue organizing the yard sale. We had received so many donations, the yard, driveway, side yard, were all covered! It was so amazing and such a blessing for Shannon’s family.
Just to catch ya up, my friend Shannon and her husband adopted a little boy and her sweet in laws paid for it. They want to pay them back($36,000) so we thought about having a yard sale(she also has a gofundme). It was such a hit. We made a lot more than we were expecting and had a great time doing it. I was so nervous no one would show up because the city took down all my yard sale signs(I had put up the day before). But the day of another family had a yard sale right by ours and they had put signs up the morning of. We got all their traffic and I felt so blessed.

I came home, showered(again, it was sooo hot) and then crashed. After I napped, we went out to dinner at a new to us place called Cubby’s Chicago Beef. It was all really good and fresh. I found this description on their site, “We are a cute little sandwich and salad restaurant that uses all the local, fresh, and organic ingredients we can get our little hands on. Our food is fresh, delicious!”

After we headed to the outlets right by our house and enjoyed walking around the outdoor mall. We rushed home to make it to the neighborhood bike parade. J had so much fun riding the streets on his strider(and collecting candy). Popsicles are the best way to end a summer night.
Sunday after church, most of my side of the family came over. My grandparents, and my brother and his family are in town, so we had everyone over. It was wild and so so fun.
Just a few of us I was able to grab as people were leaving.
what are you looking forward to this week?
