Let me just be super honest here. It is hard to blog in the summer. I have no outfit inspiration because I am constantly sweating bullets and wearing workout clothes. I don't feel like cooking because ice cream sounds better. I would rather be outside working on DIY projects than inside blogging about them. Hence why I have been absent the last couple days.
Friday I headed out to the lake with my girlfriend and her bridesmaids. Of course it was the first time in over 100+ years that it had been in the 70's in July for three days in a row here in Dallas. Seriously? The one weekend I get to go to the lake and it is cold. That didn't stop me from getting in the water and tubing like a maniac!
Andddd now I am still feel the wrath of being beaten around like a ragdoll on that tube. #worthit
Sunday I got back form the lake and headed straight to my cousin's house for a BBQ and swim party. It was finally sunny so my porcelain skin got some color. All of this was happening while my phone sat inside.
I was home for a hot second and then headed down to the Texas Hill Country to visit my parents. I am making my rounds to visit grandparents and family since this is my last chance until school starts up again.
I could have posted yesterday, but all I was thinking was how I didn't feel like it. I didn't want to be on the computer, I had no pictures to show, and I just wanted to be present with my family. I literally took no pictures all weekend. My friend had to text me the one in this post.
I know here in a couple weeks life will be back to crazy. I will have a new batch of cherubs to love and I won't be spending my days at home.
For the last couple weeks of summer (seriously, it flies by!!!) I am going to try and be present as much as possible. If I don't get a post up, oh well. If I don't document my life day by day, oh well. I am looking forward to spending time with Chris and my family. Going to Rangers games and Rough Riders games. Meeting up with friends for lunch. Watching morning talk shows. I want to soak it all in because reality is about to hit me like a ton of bricks and life will be back at full speed.
I will still be hosting WIWW, but you can expect posts to be here and there. I hate the feeling that I HAVE to post, so maybe I will find a new motivation here in a couple days, weeks, or months. For now, I am off to spend time with my family and eat some yummy Mexican food!!
PS: for all of you commenting and asking questions about things, I will try to respond! I am also trying to stay off email, so please don't be offended when I email back a week later!
