Sunday Currently: Volume 21

Good morning all! How was your Fourth of July weekend?

We had a great time, and my best friend Kayla came over to see me! We went swimming, bought giant sparklers, and spent a day at the coast. I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our weekend!


Reading  I bought an Us magazine, which I never do, and that has been the most enthralling reading I've done all week! There was a time in my life when I never thought that I would become that girl who only reads magazines (and loves celeb gossip a little too much). I'm not sure exactly when that happened, but I suppose I'm not in too much of a hurry to change it at the moment.
Writing  Obviously I didn't write much last week! Life just gets busy, and I was so silly to think that it would slow down this summer. But with our friends here, I've been getting some material for future posts!
Listening  I've had All the Little Lights by Passenger on repeat all week. I always do that. I find something I love, and I just listen to it until I can't hardly stand it anymore! I am absolutely loving this album though. I think I have something for those Brit singers! (ie, Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran, and Passenger types, not One Direction types, ha!)
Thinking  About how stinking tired I am this morning! We have been staying up way too late this weekend, and my dog has woken us up early with his barking every. Single. Morning. Usually it's around seven or so, but he really out did himself today, and started in at six.
Smelling  Outside. Probably one of my favorite things of summer is having the house opened up at night, and that amazing fresh smell that comes in in the mornings.
Wishing  For our friends to have a safe drive home today!
Hoping  To eat perfectly today. I am so sluggish and bloated after these last few days, and I could really use a clean eating day.
Loving  Side braids. I've had my hair in one so many times this week! I think I've finally perfected it (for me) and it's been a great way to do my dirty hair when it's driving me nuts.
Wanting  My coffee. Like right now! I'm going to meet my best friend for coffee this morning before she leaves town, but man, I could use some of that right at this moment I think.
Feeling  Bittersweet. We had such a fun weekend, but my best friend is leaving and that always makes me a little sad. I will be seeing her again in about a month though, so I can't be too sad I suppose!
Clicking  Not much at all. I've been browsing a lot of facebook and pinterest, and that is about it.

As usual, I'm linking up with Lauren :)

Pool Days and Photographs

Hot, hot, hot!

That's what it's been like around here lately. Most likely, it's hot where ever you are too, so I hope you're finding a way to stay out of the heat! I don't have ac in my car, so that's pretty much the worst, but as long as I spend most of the day in my house, then I'm good. This week, though, I'm extra good. Because I have access to this:

Oh yes, I'm definitely a spoiled girl! Usually, for a couple weeks out of every summer, my in-laws' neighbors are gone during the day, so we get use of the pool! It's pretty much the best pool ever, and my father-in-law actually put it in. The house is actually the one my husband grew up in, and they've kept on really good terms with the new owners. I guess it pays to be nice to your neighbors!

So, obviously the heat isn't affecting me as much as some, and I must say that my tan is looking fabulous!

Another thing I've been up to lately has been messing around with my camera. I finally started tinkering with the programmable settings, and while I still don't really have a clue what I'm doing, I've been able to get some neat looking pictures. 

So, since I should be cleaning right now, instead of blogging, I'll just leave you with some of my favorites! Happy middle of the week, and I hope you all find ways to keep cool. Maybe go use your neighbors pool!
