Summer Weekends

I them. Who doesn't? Seriously? My sister recently showed me a receipt I'd left at her house that had a bunch of hilarious items on it that I'd brought to her house. Nothing says "summer" like this receipt. For reals.

It's really hard to read, so I'll fill you in: a water gun, 3 Snickers bars, plastic boats, a floaty mattress for the pool, gummy worms, a pool lounger, tampons, Zours, & 2 Gatorades. Happy Summer indeed.

(Me & my peacock seat at dinner. Pretty!)
The weekend was relaxing: the Bodies exhibit was awesome - definitely check it out if it's in your area. Conor & I went for some walks, had dinner at a Mexican restaurant, watched some Mad Men & True Blood, & had our first tomatoes of the summer. My mom, sister & I got pedicures in fun summery colors.

My sister's toes in Essie's Lapis of Luxury, mom in Essie as well (couldn't remember the name - a coral-pink), & me in Essie's Splash of Grenadine. My sister's & mine came in a little 4-pack w. a turquoise & a gray color as well.

I have the next week totally free - I plan to get my ever-growing rump to the gym, plan our upcoming trip to Milwaukee, & cook/bake a lot! I'll be sure to keep the blog world posted!

Love it. Summer weekends are the best.

I definitely giggled over your receipt - yay summer!
Loving your nail polish. And now I also need to find me some plastic boats and new floats for the pool. :)

Isn't summer shopping the best? It seems like there's always an excuse to buy fun little items. I thought Bodies was awesome too...who would have thought looking at corpses would be so cool, right? Hope you enjoy your week off!

So happy you found my blog because then it lead me to yours. Your receipt cracks me up. I have a sickness with Walgreens, I go in and spend an hour minimum. One college Summer I came out with beer, lip gloss, gum, and a wiffle ball set.

I would kill for a free week! My summer has been fun, but absolutely nuts, and I'm so ready for a week that I don't have any commitments. I don't even care if I work 80 hours, as long as my non-work time is mine all mine.

I hear Milwaukee is one cool town, you're going to have a blast. Eat lots of cheese, drink lots of beer, see lots of art (so I can live vicariously through you).

Fabulous! Nothing says summer like candy & pool fact...that sounds like a grand idea for a blog post all on its own!

I'm in the same boat. Baking, cooking, running off the calories from the baking&cooking.

Have a great week!
