Documenting: Our wonderful 4-day holiday weekend! We were on the beach or by the pool for hours every day relaxing with Tim’s extended family and friends and it was the perfect way to recharge after a hectic June.
Accomplishing: Bachelorette crafts & tasks. We’re only 3 weeks away from our mountains adventure and I can’t wait to spend a few days celebrating the beautiful bride, drinking mimosas, hiking, wining & dining : )
Enjoying: The slight amount of color I acquired over the weekend – safely! Plenty of sunscreen and the really awesome Jergen’s in-shower gradual tan lotion. It works AND it smells good – try it!
Reading: I started reading Into the Water last week and I like it so far. Definitely a creepy thriller a la Girl on the Train! And every summer I re-read To Kill a Mockingbird – this is my 13th year in a row and I still learn something new every time. One of my favorite quotes: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”
Spending: Time, not money. Brainstorming a few free or low cost dates for Tim and I to try out, using this list I posted last week! Though we DID buy tickets to the Franklin Institute for their Science After Hours event. #nerdyandproud ; )
