WIWW: On Boredom + Link Up









Summer, it's a weird thing. Going from a super busy teacher to a bum on the couch can do things to your head. I'd be lying if I didn't admit that physical tears have been shed recently due to sheer boredom. You think it is so nice to have nothing to do, then you have nothing to do for days and days and days and then you start thinking, "Ummmm, I really need to get out!" But, I hate spending money when I don't need to and getting out means spending money. A lunch with a friend here, a dinner with a friend there, and now I've spent seventy dollars eating out this week and whoa. 

I've done house projects and I go to the gym, but day in and day out, I am getting stir crazy. 

But, that's all changing. The concert last week kicked off my "no more lazy days" and now the rest of my summer is booking up fast! My family was in town from Thursday until yesterday and now I am headed down to the Hill Country to stay with them for the week. This weekend is my SIL's wedding shower and form here on out it is wedding mode. I've got some house projects up my sleeve and I'm ready to end this summer with a bang...and no more boredom.

So, to all you who think sitting on the couch and sleeping in for three months is a dream come true, it is, but eventually, if you're like me, you'll be bored out of your mind and text your husband "I'm bored!" numerous times a day. Then he will reply with, "Pound sign: summer job." Touche.

PS: the Nordstrom sale is still going on and these booties and these booties and going to be mine!!

  1. I enjoyed every minute of my summers off when I was a teacher. There was always so much to do that had been put aside during the school year! Love your top!

  4. I know I'm in the minority, but after the initial summer "high," I've always found them kind of lonely and sad. As tedious as the school year can be, I love a routine, and I'm counting the days right now until my kids go back.

  5. I can see how three months can be way too long, I think a good month of just catching up on things and resting is what I need haha!

  6. Have you ever thought of starting a flower garden? I was thinking of going back to teaching just so I can still garden in the summer. Cute outfit! Love that necklace.

    1. I would love a garden, but we have water restrictions here and so it is difficult to garden. We need rain!!

  7. that top is so pretty on you!
    I'm like you and get stir crazy really quickly, I can do a day or 2 of lazing around but then I need to be busy... having a toddler home with me when I'm off makes that a lot easier lol

  14. Ummm....how can you tease us with this oh so adorable top and not tell us where it is from?!

  15. I can somewhat relate this summer because I just finished a graduate program so I was very busy for 5 semesters (which includied a summer internship) and now this summer, I'm actively looking for a job; when I'm not working on writing cover letters and tailoring my resume, I don't really have a lot going on. I'm glad you have some fun things coming up to keep you busy!

    I also think this is the cutest summer outfit, and very similar to one that I wore a few weeks ago and have linked to. I hope the rest of your summer stays full of fun!

    1. Thanks Nikki! I was in the same situation a couple years ago when I left accounting and spent a summer looking for a job. I have been keeping busy lately, so that's a plus :)
