The Big 40 and lots of other stuff!

Hello! I hope you all are having a wonderful July! Ours has been flying by and filled with lots of fun!
On the way to Coldplay!
My hubby and I went to see Coldplay on the 3rd (love them!). It was a fantastic concert and I was a bit sad when it was over. A late-night trip to Amelie's French Bakery made me feel much better!
Converse Girls Celebrating our 40th in Atlanta, April 2012
(We missed you Hope, Sarah, Natalie, and Angel!)
I've celebrated my 40th birthday at least 5 times now. With friends...with my little family... with my big family... with my sister... with my special group of college buddies. The day of my birthday, I was in SC with my daughter for camp. While she was at camp, I helped my aunt deliver Mobile Meals to shut-ins (such a blessing) and than after camp, I took Little Polka Dot to Krispy Kreme and she softly sang "Happy Birthday" to me right in the middle of the doughnut shop!

My sister and 3 nephews stopped by Charlotte on their way back home from the beach. It was a treat to see them and there was some serious LEGO mania going on upstairs. My sister and I had dinner at a great little Indian place down the road. It was so nice to catch up with her!
My son had a fun week at camp. After a week away, I was so happy to see him! He always looks older when he comes home from camp! You can not imagine the amount of yucky clothes he brought home! It rained all week and they were MUDDY! After washing the first load, I opened the washer and a HUGE black beetle was sitting in the doorway! I'm just thankful no snakes came home in the backpack!

Along with all the good July stuff, there have been bumps and bruises. Little Polka Dot sprained her ankle and has become a pro on crutches (and a princess in a wheelchair). She is walking around on her own today, so hopefully she has healed. I'm thankful for great urgent care doctors and a pediatric orthopedist who is willing to read x-rays on the weekends!
Little Polka Dot will be back on the playground soon!
This may be the longest post I've ever written, but it's been a while and I wanted to catch you all up on things. Polka Dot Skies has been closed during July. (I'm still searching for the fountain of youth!) I have not found it yet, but I've found lots to be thankful for along the way!

I hope you all are having a good summer! If you have time, please leave a comment and let me know how your life is going. I love hearing from you all!

xoxo Elizabeth


  1. Loved hearing about all of your Summertime adventures! Happy 40th, pretty lady! Love the picture of you and your hubby... I bet that concert was great fun!

  2. What a lovely couple you make! I am so glad you had such a lovely time and you don't even look anywhere near your age!!! Jane xx

  3. Elizabeth, Thanks for the update on everything! Sounds like everything is going well this hot summer (with the except of the injury to Little Polka Dot. Take care!

  4. Sounds like a perfectly wonderful July except for the sprained ankle. I could just picture your little one singing to you. How sweet! It's one of those mama memories that you will keep in your heart forever.

  5. Your summer sounds fantastic so far! It's hard to believe I'm hearing the cicadas....the kids always hate that because it reminds them about school starting! Little Polka Dot may be a lot like my son and all his backyard bruises.....we're playing it safe this far...
