Good Morning and Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you have all been doing well and enjoying your summer. I have been 100% busy with my family and enjoying our time together. Benjamin has been home with us for break and has been having a blast!
We have been using our MoviePass this summer and I am so happy we invested in them. Last night we FINALLY saw Solo and I was beyond happy. I love Star Wars so much, but I was extra excited because Donald Glover was in the movie as Lando Calrissian and he did not disappoint. Last week we used our MoviePass to see Incredibles 2!!! After a fourteen year wait for a sequel I have to say, O-M-G!!! I loved the entire movie and want to see it again already. If you haven’t guessed by now we are a huge Disney Family and this movie was on our bucket list. Have any of you invested in MoviePass? I want to know your experiences with it.
Ben has been on a new adventure this summer by starting drum lessons! Our friend Robert, local tattoo artist and musician, has been kind enough to be Ben’s instructor and he has already been extremely helpful. Ben has started learning his counts and when he can’t go to a lesson we go to our local music shop and he practices in the sets in the store as well as on a drum pad we got him for home use. Ben has always been really interested in music and I am really happy to see him working on learning drums. I hope we can save up for a set for him by Christmas.
We have also been doing some fun projects this summer! One of them was making a rocket. My mom had bought Ben a rocket kit awhile back and Chris helped him put it together and we launched it in the driveway. It was hilarious. We had a few failed attempts and then decided to just mess around with the components rather than the actual rocket.
Another project we did was dip dying shoes! Ben’s favorite color is purple and we could not find purple Vans anywhere! So I got him white canvas slip on Vans and found some purple fabric dye on Amazon. we prepped the shoes by putting Vaseline on the parts we didn’t want dyed and then mixed the dye in hot salt water. We left the shoes in for about 30 mins total and they came out amazing! We are going to have to do this project again. Ben is obsessed with his shoes now and I feel like they are special because they are something he worked on himself. He loves trying different styles and isn’t afraid to express himself, and I genuinely love that about him.
I have been working on some upcoming blog content and trying to become more consistent which can be difficult when you’re busy with family and activities. Last Friday I went Live on Instagram for “Coffee Convos with Robyn” and talked about consistency and positivity, and I am definitely planning on making this a regular thing. If you would like to join me I will be on Friday Mornings 8am PST and my Instagram is: EventfulMagic
I hope you all have a fantastic week and I will be working on a lot more content very soon, so I appreciate your patience. You guys are amazing!
