TGIF! Happy friday guys and gals!
When I say TGIF – I seriously mean it. This was one long week. For real – I owe my sincerest of thank you’s to God that today really is Friday. I spent the past few days in DC working a trade show for my during-the-week marketing job… it really took me back to my salesperson roots. I was so fired up and on top of the world, just feeling like I was in my old groove. The hubs and my mom have both said it’s been the first time they’ve heard me excited about anything in a while. Honestly it just felt really good to be out of the house and talking to people. It also felt really good doing something I know I’m awesome at. I think I need that in my life every now and then…
So getting back to the fact that I am beyond exhausted and want to do absolutely nothing today other than catch up on overstocked DVR! As the not so fashionable lifestyle blogger that I am, I decided you were due a not-so-fashionable blog post of sorts.
My husband took me out to lunch today. It was rainy and dreary and like I said, I’m running on empty today. But I wanted to at least look halfway decent for our lunch date. And when I say “halfway,” we are seriously leaning more towards the I-picked-up-whatever-clothes-were-on-the-floor-and-threw-them-on half of the decent scale.
Some days you just want to be comfortable. You just want to wear your favorite ball cap. You just want to be in your flippie floppies. You just want to break all rules and throw on a cute necklace with a grungy shirt. And for me, today is that day.
Despite the fact that picking out causal knockarounds was the only thing I wanted to put my brain to work on today – I didn’t just stop by the blog for that. I have a very important announcement for you!
As you know, I really hate interrupting your regularly scheduled program (ha! like there is one!) but a few of us bloggers have decided that we really need to kick off summer the right way: The blog way!
Growing up, spending my summers in Carolina on the river, Memorial Day Weekend was always the official start of summer. It’s the first weekend the entire family and a ton of friends travel to the river house. The first time the jet skis end up in the water. The first big cookout of the year. The first true glimpse of what the summer season will hold.
Needless to say, I love Memorial Day weekend.
Which is why J and I put our heads together to find a way to kick off summer in blogland! I am thrilled to be teaming up with some of the sweetest ladies you will ever virtually meet next week to share a little bit of “summer” from each of our home towns with you!
All week long, we are going to prepare you with summer stories, and tips, and recipes, and things of that sort to get you ready for Memorial Weekend! Get your toe nails painted and your flip flops ready! Next week is going to be a lot of fun!
