as good as it gets

I just started reading my September issues and I long for fall! There is a certain glamour that comes with rich fabrics and saturated color, and boots...oh how I've missed them! But, let's be honest, today temperatures were in the upper 80s, I'm exhausted from work, and putting on heels and skirt was more than I could handle! So, this is as good as it gets:) And, I'm totally okay with that!

Have a good evening!

summer days drifting away

Today the Mr. and I had an impromptu midday date. We checked out the Farmer's market 
on Fountain Square! 
Beautiful fruits and vegetables...

Buckets of sunflowers!

Dizzying amount of food choices...

An acapella group treated us to a Motown classic!

BBQ pulled pork(heaven on a bun!) and slaw...

And a cupcake for dessert!

We've both been working a lot this summer and these stolen afternoons together have been few and far between:(
Today was perfect!

Hey Y'all!! How was your weekend? Does anyone else think that sometimes weekends are more stressful than the work week? So much to do and only two days to do it! Lucky me I don't have to go back to work until Wednesday...don't hate;)

My birthday is this month...ick!(I'm not a person that loves to celebrate her birthday) But, that means my Anthro birthday discount...yay!!This year I got an additional 15% to use online...AWESOME!
I used my online discount for this adorbs sailboat skirt and the most awesome bag!!

I think I sometimes forget how dressing can affect my moods. Maybe I'm so grouchy because I don't get to dress up anymore! It's amazing what a cute new skirt and a pair of heels will do for a girl- a little sartorial prozac.

I'm off to meet my mother- in- law for dinner at Panera and then we're going to see The Help:)
Have a wonderful evening!

in the (book) club


Happy Monday! Thank you for all of your sweet comments on my last post. Sometimes all you need is to vent a little bit to feel better.

Today was a much needed day off. It was spent lounging by the pool and catching up on my blog reading. 
I also needed to finish reading the book for my book club. We choose Fitzgerald's The Beautifiul and the Damned. I loved Gatsby and This Side of Paradise but good grief this one was a tough read!!! Anthony and Gloria are two of the most unsympathetic characters. Ever! 

Next up Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five.

Geez, I'm such a slacker this summer! The thing is, there's been a lot going this summer. Most of it not good. Part of my personality is to "be on" and to make sure everyone around me is happy. That can be utterly exhausting and it wears me out. 

This is my round about way explanation for my lack of blogging. I can't really hide when I'm falling apart and I don't really want to use this as platform to bitch and whine and "poor me" so posting has been irregular.
I hope you'll stick with me as I get back to normal:)

That being said, when life hands you lemons, you put on your highest, spikiest heels and give it a good, hard junk kick!

I swear I haven't worn heels this high in weeks, but damn it felt good!
My sister in law had a baby today and nothing makes you feel better than cuddling a new born for an hour.  Welcome to the world baby Nicholas:)
