Hello out there! You may remember that last summer I did a blog series called Insta-Monday. I had a lot of fun doing it, but took a break from it for the school year. Well it’s summer again, and summer is for adventures, and adventures are for sharing. Brad and I have a lot of fun ahead of us this summer and we are looking forward to taking advantage of (probably our only) summer in Springfield. Therefore, I’m bringing back the blog series, but changing the name, since I don’t always use Instagram to edit my photos. So be looking for “Lately” every week (but probably on Monday)!
Brad had the morning off on Wednesday, so we ate at our favorite breakfast place in Springfield, Gailey’s. We’ve tried a lot of breakfast places in Springfield, and Gailey’s has been the best! You should check it out if you live in the area.
Brad and I checked an item off of our Springfield Bucket List on Friday! We attended our first Springfield Cardinals game. I’m a Royals fan at heart, but love going to any baseball game. Unfortunately, they didn’t win, but it was still a fun time.
This is Minnie. She’s my neighbor’s dog and she loves me and I love her.
Brad and I took a break from shopping on Saturday and hit up Elle’s Patisserie for some delicious ice cream. It’s so cute! If you live in Springfield, you should definitely check it out!
I’m really excited about this book! I read about the research done with HeLa cells all the time and I’m really looking forward to learning the story of the woman they came from! I just finished Twelve Diseases That Changed Our World, so I guess I’m on a bit of a science-kick when it comes to leisurely reading.
We have season tickets to Silver Dollar City this year. Sunday was a beautiful day, so we headed down to Branson after church. We rode the new ride, Outlaw Run, and I loved it! I think Wildfire remains my favorite, but it was still really great.
And of course we had to finish our day with the best part about SDC, a funnel cake and a cheap drink with a really old SDC cup.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day! We are spending it the best way to spend Memorial Day, at a cookout with friends :) See you next week!
