Busy Busy Busy. Work was busy, evenings were busy. Busy so busy. Whoa. And yet, sadly, not a lot of pictures to show for it. OH WELL.
Monday I had dinner with an old friend. We ate outside on the patio and it was NINE MILLION DEGREES I am not exaggerating. After dinner we went down to the park by the harbor and a pre-storm wind-picked up, which was lovely. We just sat on a bench and chatted and caught up. Nice.
Tuesday I got my hair cut pretty short for summer.
Then we did a photo shoot outdoors at a museum, you can see it in its entirety here. It was another hot day but we were able to find shady spots to shoot in.
Wednesday I met some friends at Beach Hut, this is a franchise of beach-front spots that serve food, drinks and have live music every night throughout the summer season. You can sit in their dining area if you want to order their food or you can just plunk your chair down in the sand with your own refreshments and still hear the music. So it’s a nice low-cost summer option and we do this pretty often. Last year they got in trouble for tax evasion and this year the franchise is back with new owners and a new name but they’ll always be Beach Huts to me.
I’ve been cleaning my car out for a long time now…there was a LOT of stuff in there. I’m finally down to the last of the Stuff That Shouldn’t Be There (as opposed to things like jumper cables, beach chair, water bottles, etc), and once it’s all emptied out I’ll get it super-duper cleaned at the car wash…in preparation for my new endeavor – I’m going to be an Uber driver, woohoo. Ha. I’m stalling a bit cuz I’m a little nervous but I think it will be a good way to bring in some additional cash on my own timetable.
Anyway, this week I found these items. I just don’t know how some things wind up in there! My daughter’s high school graduation program from nine years ago (note: she graduated on the day Michael Jackson died) and…
…this weird little hot dog cookbook ?!? Ha. If you’re a hot dog lover, I saw this article online this week about spiralizing hot dogs.
Friday was the last day of Secret Friend (aka Secret Santa) Week at work and I got my final gift (Starbucks gift card!) and found out who my secret friend was, whee!
Another great surprise that day was a little chipmunk waiting for me on my steps when I got home!
AND…getting to see MY BABY!!! She’s in NY for a little bit and we did a quick blog photo shoot (here’s a sneak peek) AND…
…sat on the beach with spiked slurpees and watched the cloudy sunset.
And I’m trying, ONCE AGAIN, to do Outfit of the Day every day. Even on casual days when I’m not really “dressing,” I’m just throwing on clothes to leave the building. Like today. I’m just running out to pick up breakfast then I’ll probably be home the rest of the day. I’m opting to skip the Fun Things with Friends (FOMO much?) to do some much-needed blog and apartment work. The day we went to the alpaca farm I had really intended to stay home and get work done, but…alpacas. So…if I get it all done today, I can play all the coming week without guilt.
And now it’s Sunday evening, time for some dinner, picking out my outfits for the week, then maybe a movie before bed. And tomorrow we start all over again!
What are you up to this first full week of summer??
