It’s the end of August. Which means the end of summer. Sad.
But that also means fall!!! And pumpkins! And some fun!
[what we’re eating this week]
My Mom’s homegrown tomatoes!
I visited my parents last weekend and my mom sent me home with a bunch of tomatoes. I grew up eating these right off the vine, so these taste like the end of summer to me!
They are sooo good!!
[what i’m reminiscing about]
From the swimming every day to doing these fun pictures with our drinks, it was a really great week with our family.
[what i’m loving]
We went out on my father-in-law’s boat last weekend and seeing my in-laws together like this was so adorable.
They are totally #marriagegoals
[what we’ve been up to]
We just celebrated 14 years of being together!! 🙂
I can’t believe its been that long. I mean in some ways I can’t even remember a time before The Hubster. And other times, I’m like, wait a minute. I’m 35?!?
[what i’m dreading]
I’ve been in and out of my office for the last week and this pile of papers keeps getting bigger and bigger. Quite honestly I have no idea if I’ll ever be able to dig myself out of it.
[what i’m working on]
No joke – I’ve been washing the same load of laundry for like 3 days.
I keep forgetting it’s in there.
I need a better system I think.
[what i’m excited about]
I got accepted into a leadership academy for the 2017-2018 school year.
I applied to get in a few months ago and was excited to get accepted.
I’ll be spending at least 1 day each month for the next 9-10 months meeting people in the community and working on how to be a better leader in my county.
I’m really looking forward to it.
[what i’m watching/reading]
I’m really liking that Chesapeake Shores is back for another season. It’s so good.
I’m really watching a lot, a lot, of Hallmark channel.
But the news is so depressing and a lot of other shows are full of such crazy drama (I’m looking at you, Scandal!).
I just started reading Jennifer Weiner’s Hungry Heart. I love her books and I’m sure this one won’t disappoint!
[what i’m listening to]
I started listening to James Taylor the other day and now I can’t stop!
His greatest hits album is so good and is on repeat in my car.
[what i’m wearing]
Sale alert: these Hinge Cora Block Heel Sandals are now under $45! They’re really comfortable – I’m a fan!
[what i’m doing this weekend]
This is a holiday weekend so we get a bonus day off! 🙂
Clair is getting married!!
We’ll be at Clair and Dave’s wedding on Saturday.
I think we’re going to just go on an adventure ride on Sunday to see what’s around the area.
Monday we’re having a Bloody Mary breakfast with our neighbors.
Should be super fun! 🙂
[what i’m looking forward to next month]
You guys – This is Us starts next month!!
I don’t know if I’m ready for all these feels!
[what else is new]
Come on back tomorrow for a new life lately post – I’ll share what we’ve been up to the last week or so!
