summer has hit. Like we're in the 90's today & this week, humidity has hit - so I'm giving fair prediction for all my summer pictures - 100% CHANCE THAT FRIZZ WILL OCCUR.
But we've had a really nice Spring I think. We're half way through June before the humidity has hit. Most years, it all hits in the beginning of May - so I'm thankful for the nice weather we had.
& I took full advantage of it to give it a little hurrah.
Friday kicked off just the usual way... a trip to Starbucks.
No Friday is complete without a Starbucks to celebrate the weekend.
Mango Black Tea Lemonade seems to be my summer drink. I need to get me a Peach Green Tea Lemonade. I used to down those babies like water & havent had them since I tried the mango version.
I then took the leap ... something I'd been putting off for a long time... bathing suit shopping.
I just have no reason for a bathing suit really... but its always nice to have one. Ya know - in case I win an all expensive paid vacation to a beach. Which wouldnt thrill me - just give me an animal-empty pool & I'm happy.
But I'm leaving for camp with my youth kiddos this week & want to have the option of getting in the water with the kids... so off to find a bathing suit.
& I gotta say, KUDOS to Target for having such good options. They had all the tiny bikinis & all the cute styles & I love how you could mix & match the tops & bottoms. & for me, they had something I felt comfortable in that was modest, something that didnt go so low in the chest, (This is church camp after all) & something I can be active in. I'd honestly wear the bottoms out for a run... & yes, those really are swimming short. Bring on the water!!!
After feeling happy with my purchase, we came home where I promptly had to get to the spot that is just calling me lately.. my back yard... to read.
I HAD to finish this book... & what a heart tugger. I was emotionally spent after reading it... which is why I had to have a sweet treat to comfort my broken heart.
Saturday, the poor hubs had to work. Which usually means I clean & stay busy getting the house together. But this time, I just straightened up around the house & started a new book. It has totally wrapped me into it... so cleaning the house? On the back burner.
Though I did do about 8 loads of laundry so at least I DID do something productive.
But all in all, I never left from this spot most of the day....
Except to come in & eat some lunch & I got in the first episode of Anne with an E... I'm going to LOVE this show. Hate there's not very many episodes.
I so enjoyed the lazy day, you have no idea... I need them. Like, TRULY NEED THEM. They are so rare for me, that when I have the chance to not change out of clothes all day except for a shower, its the best day ever.
Sunday, I decided to stay home from church. We had no MSM, I'm getting ready to leave for church camp this week & I just didnt want to get out of bed.... #whocanblameme
I eased out of the bed around 9 & made me a smoothie & got caught up on the important sales ads...
& then watched as Harvey Dent remidned me whose dog he really is...
& then it was time to do some Bible study outside in the beautiful weather before it got too warm.
It was perfect timing reading my Bible study for the day to remind me that being lazy this weekend is just what Gods wants for us to have ... we aren't meant to be on the go all the time. Rest is important. God created a Sabbath for a reason. This weekend was my Sabbath- for sure.
I did spent some time getting bills done & some chores that needed to be done...
& then we were off to celebrate our grand buddy's 3rd birthday.
I cant believe she's 3... amazing...
But she's totally into Belle right now (makes this girls heart super happy) & her Belle dress I got her when she was a baby is a tad too small....
|This is back in April.. & she's singing Beauty & the Beast
But I had to get her some dresses that finally made her really feel like Belle.
|Couldnt decide on one... had to get two
Funny thing, she was more excited about a Belle hooded towel more than the dresses. Who can predict what kids will like.
Ricky & I left from her little party to go get some dinner. He was craving something different so we headed to Outback... which when you're a vegetarian, some of these places just aren't friendly for those of us that dont like to kill animals. So my dinner.....
It was pretty delicious though. I will give it to Outback for the most amazing broccoli ... every time.
We got home in time for me to take a shower & plop right now in my favorite spot of the weekend & read some more.. (Y'all, I'm LOVING THIS BOOK I'm in right now.)
|As Old As Time... a Twisted Fairy Tale
& I read all the way up to 8:30 when I realized the Tony Awards were on & had to run in & catch up with it.
|Anyone else see this guy & NOT think of Pitch Perfect?
He's so stinkin' adorable though!!!!
... & with that, I was singing musical songs all the way to bed ... late... thanks Bette Midler ;)
How was your weekend?
