August Highlights!

Normally I would have shared my monthly recap much sooner, but I've been a bit sick. As in fever of 103, time spent in the hospital kind of sick. So September isn't off to the greatest start, but I wanted to pop in and share a few of my favorite moments from August. it's odd because August was pretty much one the worst and best months this year...funny how things work out that way, but let's focus on the good

  • Flying to California for FREE! Obviously, the biggest highlight of my month-having a full week to spend with Husband. And as if that wasn't enough, we decided to spend that time in one of my favorite places...California. Travel hacking made this trip possible. Air Balloon rides in Napa, swimming in Lake Tahoe, hiking in Yosemite National Park, and boat riding in San Francisco. Cannot wait to finish sharing all of our adventures. 
  • Hitting my 15 pound weight loss goal! All year, I've been working on losing weight but my progress plateaued and I stopped dropping weight a few months ago. Finally, I lost the last 3 pounds.
  • A big highlight of the month, finally taking the national dental boards. I literally studied for this exam for months and spending my summer doint so was miserable. I was beyond ready to get that over with. And good news, I passed!
So while August had it's share of misery, there was so much goodness to focus on. September may not be off to the greatest start, but I still have high expectations. 


  1. Those are three really awesome highlights for August! I am so sorry to hear you were so sick! I'm glad you're feeling better now though. Yikes!
