Happy Summer! While summer is not typically one of my favorite seasons, there are so many things about it that I really enjoy: bright colors, pool time, vacations, summer reads, sundresses, cold drinks, etc. We celebrated summer by eating crepes for Saturday brunch at a French cafe in Old Town, attending a going away party for a friend in our church small group last night, participating in the Cure HHT Walk in DC this morning, and enjoying a tasty tex-mex lunch at Austin Grill (after which I may have squeezed in a nap). Now for a night in of blogging, reading, and possibly watching another episode of True Detective.
Reading The Fault in Our Stars. I have not read it before, and I am determined to read it before seeing the movie. So far, it’s really great, and it will be a quick read for sure. I finished Out of the Easy earlier this week – I really enjoyed reading the book, but I thought that the ending was too sudden like the author was rushing to finish it. I would definitely still recommend it as a good summer read though.
Writing a posting plan in my planner. I’m really behind on some blog posts I had hoped to do at this point, but all of my traveling has kept me from my plan. Even though I’ve got some more travel in the near future, I’m going to try to stick with my plan from here on out.
Listening to Ed Sheeran on Pandora. I’m really looking forward to his new album that comes out tomorrow!
Thinking that I’m determined to get back into a work-out routine this week. I love going to classes at my gym, but I’m realizing that I’m way too dependent on them for my workouts. If I can’t make a certain class time, then I just won’t work out that day. There are too many great alternatives for me to make this my excuse – I have seen so many blog posts about fun at-home workout options lately that I need to start taking advantage of. Do you have any specific suggestions for workout DVDs or YouTube channels that I should start with?
Smelling our Cinnamon Sugared Donut candle from Bath & Body Works. It’s almost out, and that is the last of our candles. For now…
Hoping that I don’t regret the rather large Bath & Body Works online purchase I just made. They are having their Semi-Annual Sale which means their three wick candles are half off and their bath and body products are buy-two-get-one-free. I couldn’t resist some of their new amazing summer fragrances, and, like I mentioned in “smelling” above, we are almost out of candles!
Wearing comfy shorts and a t-shirt
Loving this relaxed summer weekend at home
Wanting to figure out what’s for dinner tonight. Daniel ran to Trader Joe’s for our groceries for the week, and we have quite the fun selection of dinner items to choose from.
Needing a bit more motivation tonight. I feel like being lazy and just watching TV and YouTube, but I can’t!
Feeling kind of strange. It was a good weekend, but I still feel like I have not gotten enough done at this point. Trying not to be too hard on myself….
