Hey guys, happy Friday! In the summer I have mixed emotions about Fridays. The first deal is the fact the kids are out and we shouldn’t be so excited over Fridays. The second deal is the hubs and I work during the week so Fridays remain pretty awesome. My weeks are becoming super freaking busy so I’m sad I don’t get to read the way I wish to. That should change…don’t ya think?
CCK brought you two posts this week (um yeah, just two, ahem…)
So let’s look at the past 7 days now….
Friday (last week) I had to work since we had a holiday in the middle of the week. I was on zombie mode but totally stoked to come home to a semi clean house! My husband had the week off of work so he was able to be with the kids so the sitter could have the week off. He cleaned a few rooms in the house for me and that was great.
Saturday we had a lot of fun. Saturday afternoon we went to our friends Lori & Scott’s for a super fun late July 4th celebration. Pool time, adult beverages, burgers, and fireworks (they were on Snap/IG/FB.) The kids had a blast, the adults had a great time – always a pleasure to go to the Marion’s! We are so happy they moved in just a hop, skip, and jump away from us out here in the boonies!
Sunday was lazy. That’s how they should be! I had all intentions of heading to church but my youngest spent the night with my mom and the oldest likes to sleep until lunch so I took advantage of a walk, lots of coffee, and some ESPN. Then we changed out of our pajamas and went to Tanglewood (ever) and got some exercise on the walking track/trails/and the doggie got in his play time at the dog park. Sunday was fabulous because not only did we get our Vitamin D at the park we also got it at the pool. When we finally came home I mowed (I love to mow, weirdo) and made a shrimp boil for dinner. By the time my head hit the pillow I was O-U-T
Monday….I had off so I invited one of my daughter’s friends over to swim with us. She has been wanting Annabelle to come over for a while so why not?! They were actually playmates when they were itty bitty babies at daycare and now they are a school year apart at their elementary school. Over the course of last school year they reconnected. Isn’t that the sweetest?
Tuesday….hair hair hair! My last hair appointment was 5/12. Why do I remember that? Because after my appointment my haidresser went to the JOP and got married!!! I had tried to get back in the chair by 6/14 but Lizz was sick. So hello 7/11. I decided to put some dark back into my stripper blonde. As Lizz said – class up my stripper blonde a bit.
Wednesday….work work work! In August I plan to post more about what’s going on in my life (aside from this kind of stuff) but my work is insane right now and I’m having to create a new schedule for when things change up in September. Unfortunately, that means letting go of a few clients. I hate to do it but if I don’t I will never do what I need to do.
Thursday….work work work. The temps have been in the mid nineties with 900000% humidity (per the norm) so I’m extra tired after work! I’m happy to admit I did basically nothing (besides some work around my own house) to celebrate the end of the work week! Happy MAIL! I got a little package from the mailbox (I knew a book was coming) and was so sweetly surprised to find some adorbs earrings in there too! Thanks Shelly!
So the weekend is here and I’m all like woo hoo. I have no plans other than to wreck my no spend July rule by getting new shoes for myself and the kids today. Look, I admitted it! Seriously, both kids have outgrown their sneakers and need new ones for football/cheer next month. I need some because well….I have holes in my shoes!!! I hate taking the kids shopping together but dammit we all need a reason to drink and that will be mine!
