Ahh, it’s been a while!
Julian’s birthday! J turns 25 on Saturday, and I’m just about as excited as if it were my own bday. I can’t wait to shower him in gifts and for his big pool party & taco bash on Saturday. And I know he is excited about being able to rent a car for less, haha.
The end of the semester! Can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to putting these classes behind me… it has been hellacious, to say the least. Juggling life and school is not always as easy as it seems!
My sister’s wedding! Memorial Day weekend, my little sister gets married. I know I will be a blubbery wreck, but I am so thrilled to see her walk down the aisle and be there to share that special day with her. It will be an additional bonus that I will get to spend the weekend with my family!
Scotland & Ireland! I’m aaaaalmost done planning our excursion. So far it is shaping up to be incredible. I can’t wait to spend days exploring Dublin, be back in beautiful Edinburgh again, and spend time with my grandparents outside Inverness, where the sun rises at 4am and doesn’t go down until 10pm.
And now that the “big things” are out of the way, here are the other miscellaneous things I love:
Frank, and the way he rests his head on my leg • putting chamomile flowers in tiny jars (very cute, trust me) • The Bachelorette starting again (don’t judge me, it’s a vice) • speaking of TV, watching the entire Mad Men series with Julian in about a month • our new pool loungers (why didn’t I get these sooner?!) • organic cat nip (not for me, obvi) • waking up to Scout pressed against my back • French press coffee (which I’ve been drinking BLACK lately, I am so turning into my Dad) • finding a $178 dress marked down to $45… in my size! • being able to put my hair up without the assistance of bobby pins or clips (it’s growin’, ya’ll!) • Paper Source (kind of ridiculously addicting and I shouldn’t be allowed in the front door) • going to dinner and a movie with my husband, only to decide after dinner that we are too full and tired and deciding to go home with our leftovers instead (hello, OLD PEOPLE!) • randomly becoming obsessed with something and spending hours/days/weeks researching online (classic Sarah) • buying (& wearing) punchy-colored lipstick. I normally don’t do lipstick, but I felt drawn towards trying something new, so I went to the MAC counter and picked up Vegas Volt and Chatterbox. I like the look of wearing bold lipsticks without too much eye-makeup on top… it also seems very “summer-friendly.”
You know I could go on forever. But I will stop here… because school is out for the day and so is the sun, which I must go enjoy! Xoxo!
