Hallelujah, it's Friday! This week actually went super quickly. I spent the first couple of days recovering from last weekends wedding festivities, and after that we were pretty busy. But I am seriously so excited for this particular Friday because we are staying H-O-M-E, all weekend long! I really savor these weekends with how busy we are this summer. On the books: the beach, ice cream, sleeping in, grilling. Gah, I can't wait.
Oh, and are those not the most amazing shoes above? They literally have 'sexy thing' in their name, and I couldn't agree more.
Here's what we were up to this week...
+ My 'adopted' grandma, Carol, was in Michigan this week, and we were able to grab lunch on Tuesday. We met Carol and her husband Dwight about 12 years ago, when we used to camp up north all summer. We've stayed in close touch with them and make sure to get together whenever they're visiting from Arizona!
Fun side story: we actually met them because as kids, we were obsessed with their dog, Brandi who was a Golden Retriever. We would walk her and play with her all day long, and that's when I fell in love with this breed. I knew a Golden was the only type of dog I wanted when we started talking about getting one! Best decision ever :)
+ I'm working my way through my summer reading list. I just finished All the Light We Cannot See and LOVED it, probably more than any book I've read in a really long time. It was so well written and despite having zero in common with the characters, I truly connected with them all. I was so sad when I finished the book because I just didn't want the story to end. I've already started onto What Alice Forgot and it's a much lighter, different read but I'm enjoying it as well.
+ This has nothing to do with what I did this week, but I want these shoes. So cute. And for that price, I'd like them in both colors.
+ We officially booked our Colorado skiing trip for winter 2016! We're heading to Breckenridge and Denver for 5 days - give me all of your recommendations!
+ I went to my first Junior League prospective member event this week... and I think I'm going to join. I know SO many of you are JL members, have you had good experiences? I'm kind of excited about what I've heard so far!
Aaaand that's a wrap. Have a fabulous weekend - see you here on Monday!
