My Month In Numbers, August 2016

Happy Friday Eve!

Today’s post is nice, simple, and kind of late to the party. I am sharing what our August looked like according to the numbers. Yes, I do realize that it is now halfway through September but I didn’t want to skip another month. I love reflecting and recapping how all of the big and little things added up.

    48 library books? That’s amazing!!! It sounds like a great month! I love the amount of selfies.

    • They are total bookworms and I love it. August was a great month!

  • This is such a fun post! I would totally think about vacation 500ish times too… can’t wait for a recap, since it looks ah-mazing on IG.

    • It was so much fun. I’ll have to squeeze in some recap posts soon. My blog schedule is SO busy!

  • Lots of things! Sounds like you had fun at Legoland!

  • 17 trips to the gym? Get it, girl! That’s awesome! And my August photo file probably looks about like yours… we just ran out of space on our external hard drive, so I’m about to order one on Amazon that is 1 terabyte. Let’s see how long it takes to fill that one up! Haha.

    • I definitely had a strong gym game last month… bit epic failure for September. Haha, #challengeaccepted.

    17 trips to the gym and 24 miles ran! You go girl. My number on those would be a big fat zero. Womp.womp. 8 Chemistry experiments sounds fun!! 13 jars of jalapeno jelly? Awesome! Jalapeno jelly is my absolute favorite. I love it over cream cheese and served with crackers. August was a pretty good month for you guys.

    • Isn’t it SO good! Making it is so simple too! It really was a great month and I cant complain about September either.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Look at you killing the gym and getting in the miles!
    I’m with you on number of times I think of vacation, and we don’t even have one planned! I just always want to go on vacation. πŸ™‚

    • Well August was awesome, September… not so much ;). Haha, who doesn’t!

  • Woot! Great job at the gym, friend!! I wish I had a weekend to look forward to!

  • Meghan Flinn

    Wow that’s a lot of books! You have some readers on your hands!

  • 2 new lipsticks!Yay for fun!

    • Heck yes. I have lipstick wearing goals to meet 😘.

  • I am fairly certain on one has a count of the burnouts witness. You are one of a kind JW!

    • Baha ha! Yes ma’am. So not a typical girl and I LOVE that about me. Is that weird? Meh, whatever.

  • Wait did I miss a jalapeno jelly post? Hopefully that can be covered in September? You are my hero for having written 24 posts last month!

    • Hero or crazy… I think crazy is more truthful. I haven’t shared the recipe but if you would like it I’d be happy to send it your way. Just leme know!

  • Nooo! Not a toilet swim lol. We had no luck in the phone department phone recently, you and I πŸ˜‰ What do you make/eat with the jalapeno jelly?

    • I know, right?! I kind of giggled when I saw yours went for a swim in you purse. Not because it was funny but boy could I relate.

    • Almost forgot the jelly question. You eat it over cream cheese with crackers and it is UH-mazing.

  • Whitney Jordan

    17 trips to the gym = you’re awesome!! Way to go!! Sorry to hear your phone went for a swim. Yay for 2 new shades of lipstick and I”m curious about your jalapeno jelly! My husband loves the stuff so is it easy to make and what do you eat it with??

    • Thank you! This month will be WAY less impressive ;).

      It is really easy to make. It clears your lungs if you deep breathly and burns your fingers if you don’t wear gloves, but it is WAY cheaper to make it than to buy it. It could be your first canning adventure! We eat it with all kinds of things. dip for grilled meats and grilled cheese but the most common is poured over cream cheese served with crackers. People request I bring it ALL the time. If you want I can send you my favorite recipe on Pinterest?!

    • deep breathly…. I meant breathe deeply bah ha ha!
