THEY ARE FINALLY HERE!!

I’m not sure much makes me happier than the Olympics. 

Summer. Winter. It doesn’t matter to me. 

I know most people have favorite sports to watch, swimming, gymnastics, beach volleyball, but I can’t get enough of any and all of them. Yes, even rowing, badminton, table tennis. You name it, I’ll watch it.  

I may or may not have bought an antenna for my TV just so I could watch. 

I love me some Olympics!!

GO USA!

4. Audrey Hepburn canvas from IKEA. Or as IKEA has it advertised in the store Audrey Hepbum.

PJÄTTERYD Picture IKEA Motif created by Phil Handsley. The picture has extra depth and life because it's printed on high quality canvas.

Also on the list…

  • paint and a canvas.
  • an all expenses paid trip for two to an exotic location for 2 weeks.
  • a novel poster. seriously people, how amazing is that? I want this one.
  • a reading chair. sure, i have my couch and my bed, but wouldn’t a reading chair with a lamp behind it just be too perfect? 

That’s all. Just wanted to share my list 😉

music in the park

17 Jul

For the first time this summer Corey and I made it to Music in the Park. We went just about every Monday last year and it was so great to go again. We drank wine out of McDonald’s cups (because we’re classy like that), we sat close to each other on the blanket, laughed, moved closer to the stage, drank more wine, and watched some random guy do some pretty freaking awesome dance moves. 

Erin and I went to Music in the Park last Wednesday… I didn’t take any pictures, but she did 🙂

peeta and katniss ♥

Dear new dress, I cannot wait to wear you!! And thanks for missing the belt when I went to buy you so I could get extra monies off!

Dear work week, Thank you for going by so quickly! I was positive it would take forever and it ended up flying by.

Dear sweet friends, Thank you for sending me lovely texts, emails, and calls after my post earlier in the week.

Dear Nicholas Sparks, Why does someone die in every one of your books? I just don’t get it.

Dear Friday the 13th, I’m not scared of you.

Dear Olympics, I CANNOT wait for you to begin!! I couldn’t care less that it’s going to be lovely summer weather… I plan on staying inside the entire 2 weeks to watch. All day every day. #USA!

Dear Katie, I’m sorry your marriage didn’t work out, but I’m glad you decided to dump Tom.

Dear Hunger Games series, WHYYYYY are you making me wait FOREVER until the rest of your movies come out?? I can hardly wait until August when HG comes out. #teampeeta

I don’t have much on the schedule for this weekend, but I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what I need. Here’s to a weekend of sun, laying out, shopping, sleeping in, reading, and maybe a glass of sangria (or 3…?) 🙂

happy 4th!

Dear really nice lady that helped me yesterday, Thank you. I really can’t say enough how grateful I am you knew I wasn’t okay and helped even when others wouldn’t. I appreciate you.

Dear Suzanne Collins, You wrote really, really great books! I just finished re-reading Catching Fire and wish I had Mockingjay with me right now. 

Dear people that keep talking about the heat, Please, just stop. I get it okay. The vast majority of you have some kind of cooler home to go to… I do not. (But huge thanks to Erin for offering to let me stay at your house last night!)

Dear popsicles, I. Love. You!

Dear WEEKEND! Hi, I’ve missed you! I’m ready to celebrate you every way possible! Just as soon as I get my dentist appointment out of the way.

Dear SarahCatherine, I CANNOT wait to see you! I really wasn’t joking when I said I might just pack up and come visit you one of these weekends. 

Dear boyfriend, Thanks for a really fantastic date on Wednesday. I love you!

Movie in the Park tonight with my seeester and all her boys 🙂

Soccer game watching with my girlfriends tomorrow afternoon!

Date night with my boo tomorrow night 😉

NADA on Sunday! 😀

It should be a good one!

About a month ago Corey got us tickets to go on an evening fireworks boat cruise on the Chicago River/Lake Michigan and last night we finally got to go! It was the perfect evening for it… the weather, my love, the vibe of the night. Perfect.
