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?

I wore this outfit Friday and had planned on taking the pictures at a better location than my backyard, like the lake or vineyards by our house. But then there was a power outage so the hubby got called out to work to fix it so there went my big plans for pictures with a pretty background.We had to take these pictures really fast so he could get to work. We got them done in 2 minute! I believe that’s a record.
