Things I Love Thursday

8 Jul

Woah…Hold on.  It’s already Thursday again??  The days are just flying by so quickly this summer.  That is NOT ok.  Let’s slow it down a bit, eh?  I’ve still got some flip-flop and sundress wearing, sunshiny weather to enjoy.  I’m not ready to say goodbye just yet.

On to the things I love today…


The fact that, 8 years past said age, I still receive Seventeen Magazine in the mail.  To this day.  Why?  Beats me.  Perhaps I’ve accidentally won some sort of lifetime subscription?  Maybe it’s a fluke.  Maybe it’s a practical joke.  I doubt the later, though.  I’ll read, flip through, and steal ideas from any magazine that shows up at my door.  I’m betting it’s a fluke.  Oh well, I guess I will continue to learn about the issues facing our teens these days (which are surprisingly more advanced than I remember them being when I was 17, by the way).  Did I really just say “our teens”?  Wow, I’m aging too rapidly.


WATER.  Being on it, in it, and around it.  (Not drinking it though, I need flavor, people).  I always loved/envied The Little Mermaid and her underwater accommodations.  I actually used to pretend to be Ariel in the pool when I was younger (you know what I’m talking about, Katie).  I swam like a mermaid and sang away my voice to Ursula… the whole nine.  Nowadays, the adult me just wants to be around the water (not living under it).  But I still wouldn’t mind having her beautiful locks or singing sea-creature friends.


Short work-weeks.  For 2 (possibly even 3) weeks in a row!  This kind of setup would really be ideal… for the rest of my life.


Visiting with families.  Not just my own.  Every family is so interesting and it’s fun to see what makes them special.  Like this weekend, for example.  I got to spend time with both my sister’s in-laws and my boyfriend’s parents.  Fun stuff.  Katie’s nephews are adorable and I may just have to be their adopted aunt so that I can play with them more.  (and snipe them a little… did you see how photogenic they are?)


Then End.
