August: A Month in Review + Summer's End Ad Sale!

Goodbye August, and hello to my favorite month of the year: September! I always feel like there's so much to look forward to in September, and this year is the biggest year ever for that! There are soo many new and BIG and exciting things coming to The Freckled Fox this month and I'd love to have you share in all the fun by being a sponsor, so I'm throwing the biggest ad sale ever! 
There are a lot of great changes coming to my ad shop this month as well, and page-views are projected to reach close to or hit 1 Million! So there's never been a better time to partner up with your's truely!:)
Now that the exciting part's taken care of, I always like to use the first day of a new month to look back on a few highlights from the previous month, so here is August:)

Movies and TV shows we watched:
  • Honestly we spent way too much time outside and reading books to watch much at all:) but Martin and I had several at-home date nights watching old 'The Office' episodes, we had some family over and watched a few favorite 'Dr. Who' episodes, and that's really it! As far as books go they were mostly nursery rhymes and fairy tails with the kids before bed, and I'm reading The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis, as well as several others (Good Reads post coming soon!).
New-to-me songs and artists I love:
Exciting things online and off:
  • I was filmed for a TV commercial coming out soon for the Foodsaver System (such an experience!)
  • Martin and I made some really big (and good) family and business decisions and plans,
  • I ditched my old blog facebook I was clinging to and created a brand new Freckled Fox one
  • I also entered the world of tumblr, and you can find me tumbling just about every day:)
  • I spent way too much on and wonder how you'd feel about amazon hauls.haha

Thanks so much for reading my little recap of favorite posts, and I really reeeally hope you come back tomorrow to see something super exciting that's never before been done on The Freckled Fox! August was really a full and wonderfully fun month, and as Fall gets closer and the weather gets slowly cooler, I'm not feeling a single regret about things we missed out on during the Summertime, and that's such a relief! Here's to a brand new month and to making it even better then the last:)
