Amazing May: A Month in Review

Our May by the numbers:
  • 7 birthdays
  • 33: how old I am now
  • 2 huge birthday parties
  • 1 birthday date at Pappadeux
  • 1 anniversary - my sister & her husband
  • 1 graduation with a Master's (another sister)
  • 1 highschool graduation (a friend)
  • 1 Mother - Daughter - Friend banquet at our church
  • 2 visits to the zoo (once with some friends)
  • 1 event at the library where we met up with Darth Vader
  • 1 trip to TN / KY
  • 1 trip to another church where Philip preached & shared our camp program
  • 4 kites flown (with varying degrees of success)
  • 1 epic bike wreck (Tigger)
  • 1 trip to a strawberry patch
  • 1 awards ceremony for our Wednesday night kids' program
  • 1 air conditioning unit out of commission. I'd share the numbers for what we've paid to "fix it" (didn't work) and now we're paying to replace it (yet to happen) with you, but I'd rather not think about it right now. 
  • 48 items checked out on my library card
  • 93 items checked out on Philip's library card (mostly for the girls' school)
  • 1,095 pictures taken, not including the ones on our phones
Books read in May: at least 10. (Check back next week for my post about that)
Books reviewed in May: Heart Wide Open by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson.
Two books published in 2014 that I read in May:


But you'll have to check back next week to see my mini-reviews.

Blog Posts in May: 29 (once I get my Weekend Links post up)
My favorite posts this month:
On Creative & Domestic I shared about our Play Ball! Party for the iBoy's First Birthday, which the girls said was "Our best party, ever!" So, that's a pretty good endorsement.

What did you do in May?
