On the first Tuesday of the month, I join other bloggers with a recap of the previous month with a sentence (or two) every day! I hope you enjoy the “sentence a day” blog for February. It’s a great way to get to know me…by getting an insight into my every day. Check out the pictures and enjoy my February with me…I started the month at my Dad’s house in Cartersville, GA.

FB: Middle Sisters Style
2/1: I woke up and painted Dad’s kitchen for a few hours and then I met two of my sisters at a spa to celebrate my sister, Sherry’s, birthday. I got a pedicure. Sherry got a facial. Val got a massage. Then we all went to Dad’s house for dinner. Sherry (and all of us) was surprised to find out that her youngest daughter, Lindsey, is pregnant. Sherry and Rick will be grandparents again! So exciting!
2/2: I went to Daisy’s Boutique and took pictures of 8 outfits for her to use as marketing. Then I went to my sister’s cafe in Tate, GA. After her shop closed, a couple of my sisters, niece and her baby, all went to the outlet mall for an hour or so.
2/3: I painted from 9:00 am- 4:30 pm. I was so close to finish painting Dad’s kitchen. I didn’t have time to finish the bottom half of the back door or scrape the paint off the windows. I had a late evening flight home to Denver.
2/4: I started getting sick on the plane to Denver last night and today I had a full blown cold. Sneezing and runny nose. Yuck. I went straight home from work and went to bed. Slept 12 hours!
2/5: Feeling better today.
2/6: We got snow! I’m feeling better but still taking it easy and going to bed early.
2/7: Got in an early morning workout – shoveled the driveway and actually worked up a sweat in -8 degrees!
2/8: Work and then home for a relaxing evening with hubby.
2/9: Body pump class first thing. Then Dray and I sat in the hot tub. After a big breakfast we went sledding in the neighborhood. We went to a couple different nearby parks to check out the sledding hills before going to dinner at Ramen.
2/10: I won a down jacket from Happy Goat Lucky – so I had to get a picture of it! I love it! I especially love the fur trim! It was a relaxing day in the hot tub and Dray made a delicious crab boil for dinner.
2/11: Body pump class after work.
2/12: 25 minutes on the Elliptical machine after work. After a dip in the hot tub, I gave Dray a massage.
2/13: Dray and I went to a Valentines Day Meet up at Edward Jones before heading to Body Pump class and enjoying a dip in the hot tub there.
2/14: Dray and I enjoyed Valentines Day by eating dinner at The Post restaurant in Lafayette. We met two couples there and really had fun!
2/15: I got on the elliptical for 20 minutes after work. Ate too much yesterday!
2/16: Body pump class first thing. Then hubby and I got in the hot tub there, then home to enjoy a nice breakfast. I cleaned house a little while Dray made fried rice and BBQ pork. Our friends daughter, Kaitlyn, came over to spend the weekend. We watched the Hate you Give movie. It is really good. We went to the Denver airport at 9:00 pm to pickup Dray’s 3 boys. Winter school break!
2/17: We enjoyed a nice breakfast. Kaitlyn and I went shopping a little. We got in the hot tub and froze our ears off! Almost! It was windy and around 20 degrees. Then we watched Bridesmaids movie.
2/18: President’s Day. I watched Dray’s son with cerebral palsy during the day. Dray and I went to the Community Center for Body pump and a dip in the hot tub that evening.
2/19: Back to work. Dray picked up Chinese for dinner. Yum! I got on the elliptical for 30 minutes after dinner. The sun starting to set over the Rocky Mountains was so pretty. Hard to capture from my Jeep window…while driving. :}
2/20: After work I got on the elliptical for 30 minutes. Then we took a group of under-privileged kids to see Into the Spider-verse movie. It was really good and I’m not one to usually go to super hero/cartoon type movies. This movie had a much deeper message about overcoming and believing in yourself.
2/21: After work I went to Body Pump class, then home for our monthly Skype call with friends that used to be neighbors. One friend moved to Hawaii and one to San Diego. So this is how we keep up with each other!
2/22: Dray’s middle son turned 21 years old today! He has cerebral palsy and he is our baby – he is the size of a 5 year old and mentally a baby. So, on his birthday, we gave him all the Doritos he wanted, let him get in the hot tub (his favorite activity) and gave him extra love!
2/23: We went to body pump class and then the whole family went sledding. It was so much fun!
2/24: Day at home cleaning the house and relaxing. Dray’s 3 boys (my step-sons) in pics above.
2/25: Dray took his 2 younger sons back to Georgia today – winter school break is over. I went to body pump class after work.
2/26: Work and then home.
2/27: After work we packed for Trinidad vacation.
2/28: We flew to Houston and then to Port of Spain, Trinidad to visit friends for Carnival. It was 9 hours of flights. I watched Bohemian Rhapsody and Can You Forgive me on the plane to Trinidad. Both very good films.
Be sure to watch for my Sentence a Month next month so you can see more pics from Carnival in Trinidad…and much more.
Hope you had a good month – thanks for reading my blog post. xo, Cindy
