I Love Them, I Love Them Not

Here is a little something I bet you didn’t know about me… I hate wearing dresses! I see them on other people and think they are oh so cute but when I put them on, I just feel so dressy.  I do, however, like skirts. How can I like skirts but not dresses? I don’t know, I’m just weird like that.

Every once in a while I will come across a dress that I like on me, such as the dress I’m wearing today. Although, I think the main reason I like this dress is because it looks more like a skirt and top than a dress. But it is a dress and I like it!

Cool Down

The weather was in the 90’s over the weekend! It is starting to cool down now and I am so thankful for that. I realized I am not quite ready for the summer weather. Summer is my least favorite season. If it never got above 80 or even 90 degrees, I would be happy. But getting to highs of over 100 during the summer, just makes it not so enjoyable to be outside. Luckily we have a boat so we can go on the river and cool off a bit. Here’s to hoping the 70’s weather sticks around for a bit longer.

Good Deeds

I love giving gifts and doing things for people. If I were a billionaire, I would be like Oprah… gifts for everybody!!!

Today I got to do a good deed. I was standing in line at Target and the little boy in front of me (probably around 11) was buying a backpack. The total came to $37.70 and I heard the boy shyly tell the cashier that he only had $36.00. So what did I do? I gave him the extra money so he could buy the backpack. If I were Oprah, I would have paid for him to go to college or something like that. But I don’t have that kind of money so $1.70 is what he got. I know it wasn’t much but it made me happy to get to do something nice for someone.

Date Night

 On Saturday, the hubby and I had a date night. And by date night, I mean we went to the movies and got ice cream after. We saw The Lucky One and loved it (Being that it is a chick flick, I’m sure I liked it a little more than the hubby did). I had read the book about a year or two ago and I love anything Nicholas Sparks so I kind of knew I would like the movie. Did anyone else see The Lucky One over the weekend?
