August came and went in a flash and it was a HOT one here in Minnesota! We still managed to have a ton of fun. We made it to opening weekend of the Renaissance Festival! I thoroughly enjoyed my GIGANTIC turkey leg and some wine from a ceramic mug. Talk about traditional food!

We had our final days selling at the Farmer’s Market. It was so much fun selling that I have decided to open up an Etsy store . Stay tuned for updates on new products! I am very open to requests on products to sell too, so please leave your requests in the comments below.

I took this on my morning run. Need I say more as to why I get up at 4:30 to go running outside? This is my little piece of heaven!

My favorite new gadget:

Now this really isn’t a gadget but I have been searching far and wide for a sippy cup for my kiddos that: 1) is stainless steel and 2) does not leak. I have tried them all and after doing a poll on my Facebook Page, this is the one I decided to go with. Success!!!! Thanks goes to my readers, you guys rock!!! Bonus: my daughter is obsessed with Cinderella. Winning!
