I used to only have three speeds – fast, very fast and asleep. Now I let the season and need determine my speed. Despite a quiet weekend last weekend, I felt like I needed another one this weekend, so I did just that. Few plans, lots of open time, two runs, one book read and meals cooked. It was so good. And the weather is warm and our apartment pool is open. Hallelujah!
- I wore my bathing suit yesterday and got to lay by the pool. Our apartment complex can feel a little bit like a frat party during the summer, but I wouldn’t complain because since our management caters to young people, they open our pool at the beginning of May and keep it open through the end of September. None of the Memorial Day to Labor Day crap. We get an extra two months. This sun goddess could not be happier.
- I hung out with Tina Fey this weekend. No, we’re not besties, although I do have a new celebrity crush. I read her book, Bossypants on Saturday and Sunday. Start to finish. I highly recommend it. I love the way she uses humor to tackle some serious issues. She also tells a lot of jokes for the sake of telling jokes, which I really appreciate.
- Taco night is the best night. On Saturday we hosted girls from our small group, and we had tacos. Tacos satisfy those with eating restrictions and those who eat anything. Each person gets to build their perfect taco, even if that’s a taco salad. Plus, margaritas… my favorite!
- When the weather is beautiful, a donut date and a walk in the park with your best friend is always a good idea. I am so thankful that I have been able to continue building relationships from college, and that some of my very best friends live close enough to meet on a Saturday morning. There’s something special about a friend who can tell if you’re lying, but will always remind you that she trusts you. It’s HUGE. The trees were blooming and the donuts were awesome! What a way to kick off the weekend!
My week is off to a busy start, but it’s a 4 day week. My sister graduates over the weekend, so I’m headed out of town at the end of the week. Hope you have a great week!
