Well Hello There, June! Hang On, Just Let Me Carbo-load…

June is a busy month in the Riley household.

Wait, no, check that – June is a RIDICULOUS month in the Riley household – but it’s such a good ridiculous! What all do we have going on in this most blessed of summer months, you ask? Well. Only the following:

June 3 will see me on the way to the North Carolina mountains with my mom. My aunt and uncle own a cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and we’re taking a “girl trip” with some of the women in our family. So basically, this is what I’ll see outside my bedroom window in just a couple short days:

On June 5, my husband will take the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) exam. It’s a hard test, y’all. And by “hard” I mean it’s actually a really big deal if you pass Level 1. And if you pass Levels 2 and 3, well, you’re pretty much a rock star. So, while I’m gallivanting around the mountains, he’ll be sitting an 8 hour exam. I think I’m coming out on the better end of that one.

Our two-year wedding anniversary is June 7, at which time I may try to convince Rob to let us watch our wedding video. Apparently, one of us got a little choked up and the other one didn’t, and the one that got emotional doesn’t want to watch the video. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions as to who is who.

We get a break until June 18, which is my 27th birthday, and then a few more days to catch our breath until June 24, which is Rob’s 24th birthday. Yes, you read that right. I’m a cougar. Hold on, my fishnets are sagging and I need to go fix my false eyelashes, can you hang on just a second?

And finally, it’s possible that the last week or so of June will bring the secret of Sprinkle* Riley’s gender. I’ll be taking bets until then, so go ahead and submit your guesses now!

So if you don’t see me around too much this month, don’t worry, I’m fine. I’m just trying to keep up with June. She’s a little crazy, that June, isn’t she?

*Sprinkle is not what we are naming our baby. We started calling it that back when it was the size of a sprinkle and it stuck. It’s more like a tube of mascara now, but Mascara Tube Riley doesn’t flow quite as well.

  1. It is one of my dreams to be a cougar. Until I am 35, I will only date men older than me. When I hit 35, I will only date men younger than me. (The sad thing is, I am COMPLETELY serious. I honest to goodness want to be a cougar. It’s LEGIT one of my life goals.)

    Sounds like you have an AWESOME month coming up! 🙂

  2. Sounds like a totally fun month!

    June is my nutty month – we have school right up until the end of the month. There’s provincial testing going on and I haven’t even started report cards. Never mind all the usually fun stuff at the end of the year. 🙂

  3. Dean: Your “waters” have been noted. 🙂 We’ll see if you’re right!

    Hannah: I’ll try!

    Alexandra: If you’re serious about your cougar aspirations, may I suggest a Cougar Cruise? Yes, they are real, and the rules are: no women younger than 35 and no men older than 25.

    Jemi: School till the end of JUNE? Holy cow, woman… hang in there!

  4. Rob is going to do great! Also, it’s his GOLDEN BIRTHDAY!! It’s the best birthday of all!

  5. Wow, that sounds like one busy month girl! I envy you’re beautiful mountain cabin, but in another week I’ll be in one myself! I’m on my way to Lake Tahoe soon…Best of luck to your husband on his test! You’re hubby’s b-day and anniversary are coming up, you might get to find out Sprinkle’s (LOVE that by the way) sex, wow, you just aren’t going to get the chance to slow down!
