In Other News

I told Loverboy I wanted to go apple picking this week. I want to pick my own apples and wear fall clothes and hold hands and drink cider. 
He said, "I'll take you to Wegmans and you can pick whatever you want." 

Man, am I one lucky girl or WHAT!? ;)  
(We are going apple picking. For real. Not an option.) 

In other news, I got a job! A real full-time job.  No more nannying for me (although I am so so so so sad to leave my girls.) More to come.

This Weekend

This weekend, I had a job interview. 

I baked a lot of brownies. I also brought said brownies to the MU tailgate prior to their spanking of the Sacred Heart Pioneers  ;)  They were football shaped ... the brownies, not the Pioneers.  C said they were one of my "better creations." 

(not my picture. as soon as my darn iphone decides to sync with my computer I will upload my own and not use google.)

I had my first bite of Popeyes Chicken. 

This weekend I also wore my brandy new Tory Burch sneakers. They were dark blue of course, because that's the only color I sport from August through November.  

It officially became Fall on Saturday, so I thought I would allow myself to wear closed shoes to the football game.  They didn't last long though, I changed into my flip flops by half-time. 

(I miss summer already.)

Make Me Wanna Roll My Windows Down...

Around 8:35 this morning I was standing in line for my iced coffee behind a particularly grumpy woman. When the very polite young man behind the counter requested her order, she curtly demanded her latte. She tapped her pointy kitten heeled toes and grimaced for the entirety of her 50 second wait.  Even with latte in hand, she marched out the door sulking the whole way. 

The sun was shining, she began her morning with a coffee and hey, it's Thursday - the weekend is just around the corner.  Why the misery?

My only explanation (besides perhaps she was upset about her hideous shoes) is that she must not have had her windows down on her morning commute today.  Because how could someone be so gloomy on a sun-shiney day with the promise of a 75 degree high?! 

Yep,  I bet her windows were up on her way to work this morning. Just saying.

I am just going to come out and say it: if you are driving anywhere in the central New Jersey area this week with your windows up, AC on, I am judging you. 

It is beautiful in Hometown, Jersey today. I woke up chilly, donned my favorite outfit of shorts and long-sleeves, got in the car to go to work and immediately put my windows down. Bliss. 

The feeling of driving down the highway with fresh air blowing through your hair is euphoric.*  Especially this time of year.  You cannot argue that the air tastes the freshest, and feels the crispest as the seasons transition from summer to autumn.  So why are your windows up? 

There is no reason to not be blissfully content on a day like today if you are getting some fresh air. Am I right? Or am I right? 


Coincidentally, I can't get enough of this song from Florida Georgia Line. 

Baby you a song, make me wanna roll my windows down, and cRuUisSeee ;)  

*OKAY so maybe I'm a little biased being the driver of a convertible vehicle all year round, but still.

Monday Photo Fun

I said I was going to attempt to jump back into blogging full swing, so why not post twice in one day? Linking up with Savanah to start slowly but surely start publishing my life on the internet ;)

Wheras I used to complain with the rest of the world come Monday morning, being a Stay At Home Daughter (which I will endearingly refer to as SAHD from here on out,) Monday mornings are really just an extension of Sunday.  My days are all blurred together and Mondays don't feel as bad as they once did.  However, I can still reminisce on the fun I had with the rest of the people in my life who live for the weekends. Here's what's on my phone as of recently:

 Our last night at D'Jais: the dance club at the beach where I frequented at least once a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  A favorite locale to shake your butt for free over-sized t-shirts and cheap light up jewelry.

 Celebrating a big MU Football win over the University of Rhode Island at a local college bar with C, his partner in crime and teammate, Mike, and Mike's girlfriend Erin.

Sandy toes.  The girls I nanny live at the beach, so this is just a snapshot of one of our September days in the sand.  

I can never get enough pictures of this boy in uniform!  He rolls his eyes every time I ask him to take a picture after a game, but I don't care.  :) 

Another big win for the Hawks!  MU won their first conference game vs Wagner this past weekend. Couldn't be more pumped!! 

Happy Monday! 

Back in Action.

May 9th, 2012 marked my last post on this blog of mine.  Since then, I progressed to terp alumnus status, moved in and out of my beach house, moved back home and claimed title of Stay At Home Daughter, and began a series of exciting/depressing weekends at which I pretend to still be a college student during C's football games. I also have not worn pants since May 9th, which is irrelevant but nonetheless encouraging.  

I missed blogging, but to be completely honest, I had way too much fun at my beach bungalow to even think about opening my laptop. To my surprise, I had a few people tell me they missed my blog. While this was flattering, it was not enough for me to leave the beach and find a wi-fi hot spot.  However, now that Fall is right around the corner and beach weather is slowly diminishing, I find myself with the time to enter the blog world once again.  

Prepare yourselves for an ambush of pictures and anecdotes from days on the beach, nights at the bars, and the times in between where I pretended to be a nanny and productive member of society.  

Summer went by way too fast, but alas, I have re-entered reality.  I am job-hunting, body pumping, football-watching, babysitting, and finally, blog-writing.  Bear with me while I warm back up to writing and catch myself up in the blogosphere. Also, while I consider maybe taking my long pants out of storage.
