I would really like it if August wasn’t almost over! I am just not ready to let go of this amazing summer. It’s funny how I think I actually have control over these things…
Me time. Some people don’t need, or more likely take, time for themselves. But if I don’t take it bad things happen. By nature I am someone who will spend every waking moment taking care of everyone and everything around me. Which will burn a girl out. So I have to take a night here or there and turn off my cell phone and do something by myself and for myself. This Tuesday I had one of those nights. Will was out having a night with him mom so I took advantage and tuned off the phone. I went and got a pedicure and ate delicious Indian food which Will (and most everyone else I know) doesn’t like. Then I caught up on Big Brother. It was exactly what I needed.
Amanda from The Lady Okie recently posted about this book she had read and it sounded like something I would LOVE. So when she said she was giving it away I was all over that. Miraculously I won. A serious miracle because I never win anything. I can’t wait to dive in to This Is Your Brain On Sports! I will probably pass it along once I am done so stay tuned.
One of my favorite things to do in the summer is head to the minor league baseball games in our town. They do a Money of Monday promotion with $1 hot dogs and $1 beers. Will and I went with a bunch of friends this week and had a blast. It was a tie game in the ninth inning so there was plenty of dramatics and Will and I both went and ate dinner for $20. Can’t beat it!
The hubby made my lunch one day this week. He’s a keeper.
It feels like Monday was a really long time ago but I got to shop the Lilly Pulitzer sale for the first time. I ended up just grabbing a pair of shorts but I can’t wait to get them! And now I know how it works for next time and I can be way more prepared. And be able to spend a little more since it won’t be three-months post wedding!
