Do you know what I love about Sundays? I love the laziness... the sleeping in... the family time... the easiness... the joy... the morning coffee... the Sunday paper full of coupons... Oh man, I love Sundays. And for today, I am going to do something easy... a "currently" update and Sunday social. Basically, it like a "get to know me Sunday" :)
Reading... Mindy Kaling's "Is everyone hanging out without me". I have made it through the first chapter and I really like it.
Writing... blog posts for the week. I discovered that if I write, and schedule, my post's during the weekend, then it gives me more quality time to spend with my family, and most of all, Lil Man. I really don't want blogging to become a job, so I am trying to prioritize my life.
Listening... to Katy Perry "This is how we do", Red Hot Chili Peppers "Soul to squeeze", and STYX "Renegade". Yes, I just pulled them off my Shazam, and they were the last three songs that I heard, liked, and wanted to remember.
Thinking... about my life as a whole.
Wishing... for a day off to spend with my family. My hubby works four days a week, and I usually work two to three of the days that he is off. Sure, we need the money, but I would love to spend a day, doing family things at least once a week.
Hoping... for good news. My grandma (my step-dad's mom) had a stroke a few days ago, and even though physically she is fine, mentally she seems to be slipping. I haven't been the most supportive person to my parents lately, due to stress and anxiety, but I am definitely hoping for some type of good news concerning her.
Smelling... my favorite perfume... Lancome La Vie est Bella.
Wearing... my favorite maxi... the weather is getting cooler, and I want to wear it as much as I can, before I can't anymore.
Loving... the fact that I may be getting more hours at work this week. The office manager resigned, and one of the staff members were promoted, leaving some hours open. As long as the open hours fit within my schedule, they are mine.
Wanting... ice cream. Most likely Ben and Jerry's, but even an ice cream bar would do at this point.
Needing... a cuddle from my Lil Man. For like the past four days, he has been wanting to sleep in his own bed instead of with Mommy (the hubby works midnights), which is nice, because it's a sign that he is growing up; but I really love cuddling.
Feeling... sad. I was looking at pictures of Lil Man last night, and realized that he is growing up. He isn't my little chubby faced baby anymore, and it's rather sad. He is going to be four at the end of September, and I really don't know where the time went.
Missing... my bed. I am kinda tired- I think it's from all of the stress- and I just want to take a bath, relax, and sleep for twelve hours.
In case you missed it...
I talked about the single most disgusting thing I had seen all week, explained why Robin's death was affecting me a bit more than you, and sent some shout outs to fellow bloggers.
1. What is one item you wish you could splurge on right now?
Garth Brooks tickets. He is coming to Chicago in September, and I desperately want to go.
2. If you had an entire weekend of no plans what would you do?
You mean I wouldn't have to work all weekend? Wow! Um... I would take Lil Man to the park, maybe plan a picnic, definitely take some pictures, and enjoy spending time with him.
3. What is the next place you are visiting outside of your current city?
Probably Chicago, IL. I would like to take Lil Man to the Children's Museum at Navy Pier before it gets too cold.
4. Are you a neat freak or a clutterbug?
It really depends on what it is... I used to be a full-on clutterbug, but I am starting to lean towards neat freak lately, and have been getting rid of a whole-lotta things.
5. What is your favorite summer purchase?
I haven't made a big purchase yet this summer, but I have made some small purchases. I grabbed some clothes from the Maurices clearance event, a new Coach hippie from a lady on Facebook, makeup (I love the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation), almond body oil, and an amazing kabuki brush. I do, however, plan on purchasing a Canon Rebel T3i in late August/early September.
