Really? August, where did you come from?! Man…well, I love me some August. It signals the end of summer which means autumn (my favorite season) is just around the corner. It also happens to be my birthday month; in sixteen days I’ll be 28. I’m okay with it. Now, onto some of what I’ve been up to lately.
READING / Miss Diana has been so kind as to lend me some of her Kindle reads and I’m excited to start reading Nerdy Thirty and The Book Thief.
EATING / Strawberries have been my snack of choice this summer. Trader Joe’s has been selling cartons of “extra sweet” ones and I’ve been making the most delicious salad with them: mixed greens, grilled chicken, strawberries, cucumber, goat cheese, sunflower seeds & a drizzle of homemade blackberry balsamic vinaigrette. SO GOOD, you should try it.
THINKING ABOUT / Travel. I’ve been pinning like crazy to this board. There’s so many beautiful places I want to visit!
ENJOYING / The cool summer breeze at night. After our evening walks with Walter, we come home, open up all the windows, shut off the AC and enjoy the most delicious breeze inside the house. It’s my next favorite “comfort noise” next to rain against the windows.
WATCHING / Still religiously watching Gilmore Girls. I think I’m on season 4 now. I’m anticipating the return of my roommate so that she can get me the next season’s installment from her parents house! I’ve also been catching up on the return of Dexter. I can’t believe its the final season :( I’m embarrassed to admit Pretty Little Liars is a guilty pleasure of mine and since the show has become increasingly annoying, last night I begged my cousin to tell me who A is (she looked it up). Now that the mystery is solved I can sleep better at night. Okay, not really but, its a shocker! I’ve heard great things about Orange is the New Black so I plan on picking that up as well. As if I needed another time-waster. Sigh.
LOVING / Roasted seaweed snack from TJ’s, the taco truck across the street from work, challenging myself to wear lipstick everyday for a week, brunch + lady dates with my favorite gals, hiking with Glenn and friends, the 40 Days of Dating blog, rocking my sweet nephew to sleep and my comfy new mermaid pajama set.
As always, thanks to the lovely lady Danielle for the inspiration behind these posts.
