Do you remember that
summer? That summer when you stayed up late, sat in front of bonfires, drank beers and took shots, chatted up strangers, and maybe even had a summer fling?
That was the summer of 2009 when I was 22, and I abstained from any fun in summers and years after. I struggled with life and I moved. Now I’m trying to restore balance.
I’m not 22 anymore. I’m 26, but a summer of nostalgia is something I deem appropriate right now.
You can call it a partying binge. Give me a break though – I honestly haven’t been very social since 2010… and it’s only a month and a half of craziness. Then it’s back to being perfect. 😉
Onto my favorite day of the week this summer, Monday, because I don’t work.
Finally some MARVELOUS normal food: $2 kombucha and oatmeal protein pancakes
Vendors brought their foods in for a competition. I skipped the fried fair food in lieu of semi-MARVELOUS chicken kebabs.
I was introduced to this MARVELOUS
brand at Blend Retreat
and snagged one for a quick snack.
MARVELOUS Thursday night at Dave & Buster’s to hang out
MARVELOUS Friday meet-up with high school friends
Brought other Julie along too.
New dress 🙂
We went to a Korean restaurant/bar.
No food was involved actually.
I took a MARVELOUS nap after work on Saturday night then headed to a housewarming party.
Our MARVELOUS fruit carver finished his weekly themed creation: underwater theme.
I scored a free Scorpion pepper plant that’s supposed to be spicier than a ghost chile!
Sunday dinner at Seasons 52
again! I went with my co-worker Cayla after work to celebrate our “Friday.”
I got the strawberry-basil fusion and shared the summer fig & goat cheese flatbread, both of which they ran out of last week. For my entree, I chose the shrimp & scallop ceviche and for dessert, the caramel macchiato mini indulgence.
On tap for today:
- Sleeping in, which actually didn’t happen – I only slept till 8 A.M.
- Updating mom’s pet license for her dog
- Work out
How are you enjoying this summer more than summers past?
