The Feels in July

Wow! July just flew right by in the blink of an eye.  Between our 4th of July weekend, my birthday (week long) celebration, and our overnight trip to Maine we had a fabulous month!

Today, I'm linking up with X-tremely V  for The Feels and though the questions are the same each month the answers are always different since they're based only on our current month.



Favorite Meal-- We had so many great ones this month-- even eating out in 4 or 5 restaurants!  But my favorite meal had to be my birthday dinner.  My husband grilled up rib eye steaks and we had corn on the cob, squash casserole, baked potatoes, and salad topped off with Alec's triple cheesecake cups.  YUM!



Favorite Movie/ TV Show/ Book--

Movie: Book Club-- I re-watched it this month after Shelbee mentioned it on her blog and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this movie! 



Tv Show: Outer Banks.  I had started watching this last month but decided to wait and watch the whole series with my husband.  We both enjoyed it so much and watched all 10 episodes in just under a week. 




Book: This is such a tough one.  I read 10 books this month (you can read about them here) and they were all pretty good but I guess if I had to pick just one favorite I'd say The Giver of Stars



Favorite Activity: Shopping!  I spent a day at the Wrethem Outlets with my mom picking out my own birthday gifts and a good portion of our two day trip to Maine shopping too.  I just can not resist end of the season sales! 





Favorite Moment:
Oh boys we had so many I'm not sure I could pinpoint one!.. Maybe when my husband surprised me with flowers for my birthday?  He so rarely thinks to buy flowers for any reason that when he does they feel extra special.



Goal for August: Get Alec all squared away for school and help Ian prepare for his learner's permit, possibly take a short family trip if time and finances allow. 

Anything else that made July feel good: We saw so much of our family and friends this month.  Between a two day long 4th of July celebration, my birthday, a friend's party, and karate starting back up. It was wonderful.  


How was your month?

    1. It took us a good 2-3 episodes but we really liked it a lot; even if it was a bit far fetched at times.

  6. That cheesecake dessert looks amazing. I have read a JoJo Moyes book from years ago but I can't remember the title. I will need to go back and look.
    Thank you for brightening my Monday morning. :)

  8. That cheesecake though, drooling over here. Also, I loved Book Club. I've seen it a few times and I love each actress for something new every time I see it. I'll watch Jane Fonda in anything! Sounds like you had an awesome month! I feel like every month since March has been over in a flash.

    1. I have never heard of german strawberry cake but that sounds good too. I used to be the one making all the desserts (mine included) and now it's almost always Alec.

    1. I had to wait over a month for my husband to watch it with me and then once we started it he really seemed to enjoy it even more than me!

  13. It sounds like you had a nice July! The cheese cake bites look really good and pretty flowers. I want to watch Outer Banks too as my daughter recommended that one. I can't believe how fast July flew by! Thanks for the blog visit and have a nice day and week!

  14. I can't believe that July is almost over either. So fast! I'm currently reading The Giver of Stars right now. I've got about 100 pages to go and can't wait to see what happens next with Margery and her baby.

  15. You have an LL Bean outlet? I am sooo jealous. My husband watched Outer Banks now I feel like I should watch it. That cheesecake bite looks amazing!

    1. Nope but there is an LL Bean outlet in Maine-- pretty much the whole reason why we picked the town we stayed in!

  17. B and I loved Outer Banks, too. We binged it in less than a week! I can't wait for season 2 although it'll be a while, I'm sure.

    1. I don't think it took us much longer than a week either. I can't wait to see how season 2 goes.

  18. Such a fun month of favorites! I too have been watching old movies that I had forgotten about. One of which is Bird on a wire with Goldie Hawn and Mel Gibson. Your shopping trip looked super fun too! I would love to have you come and link up to my Centerpiece Wednesday Linky Party and share your post with us https://karinskottage.com/2020/07/centerpiece-wednesday-party-time.html
