Summer Breeze

I have to ask myself the dreaded question….”Is it really Monday, already?” This weekend honestly just flew by faster than I even expected.  I helped host a friends bridal shower this weekend, and we decided to have it at my house. It was the first time that many people had been over since we purchased it last October, and boy was it stressful!  Don’t get me wrong, it was so fun to have everyone over and all the ladies were so wonderful and gracious with their compliments. (But, of course, as the homeowner? I’m secretly thinking about all the spots that haven’t been painted and all of the work we still have left to do!)  Not to mention, our air duct system is not the greatest, so I was constantly running to turn the AC down as low as it would go!  That’s the wonderful part about Texas summers and old homes. Now if we can just get screens on our windows, we can enjoy a nice summer breeze!

Speaking of summer, this dress just screams summer to me.  I love how breezy it is and the low back adds a special little touch. Vinnie Louise just kills it with these sweet, summery dresses.
Perfect for Texas weather!

Sunflower Love

I am usually 100% against wearing jeans during the summer.  Mainly because we live in Texas, but also because the heat and humidity act  like a vacuum and as soon as I step outside, my nice fitting jeans immediately suction cup themselves to my legs in a fit of sweaty grossness.

It’s true.
It’s not a pretty sight.
That being said, I decided to suck it up for today and today only.
There is a slight breeze in the air, so they aren’t desperately clinging to my legs quite yet.
Our boss is letting us watch the soccer game at a pub across the street today, and if we win, we get to go home early. So everyone cross your fingers and toes for me!
I did my best to find a “USA” shirt, but all I found was this Arkansas one. And I mean, it’s a part of the United States, so it made sense to me in my moment of “clothes all over the floor, five minutes left until I need to get out the door” desperation.
Makes sense, right?

Fingers crossed! Toes crossed!
This girl wants an early day off!

Cloudy Blues

 It’s cloudy out today, which basically means one thing. I wish I was curled up at home in bed watching endless episodes of Parenthood and snuggling with my pup.
I really do despise summer days when the sky is full of ugly, dark grey clouds. I would much rather have the sun shining through. Unless it’s raining, of course.
Then the clouds are welcome to come out and play.

I also just think I’m a little exhausted because we have been going, going, going non-stop lately. We haven’t had a weekend to just relax and do nothing (and by nothing I mean work on the endless amount of house and yard projects we still have left to do).  We are jetting off again this weekend to Salt Lake City for my brothers engagement ceremony.  Speaking of, if anyone has any great spots we just have to visit while we are there, do let me know!

Oh, and I haven’t packed yet. No surprise there. I’m also limited to a carry-on.
So I guess that will be tonight’s big adventure.

Surprise, Surprise

I love a good {surprise} day off from work.
It calls for a full day of adventure.
For some reason, it doesn’t seem like a weekend.
It seems like a special, exciting day.
One that is meant to be spent by the pool, driving through the countryside and maybe a $3 matinee movie at the local movie theater.
A mid week break to get you through until Friday.

That being said, I have a fun little surprise for you, too!
Head on over to my Instagram to win this super cute kimono from Maude!
Here’s to a lovely day!
