Over It

You know how things get trendy and then they just seem to linger on for what seems like forever?

Over It

Yeah, I'm over it. (Or, in a lot of these cases, I was never really into it.)
  • Chevron print 
  • Thigh gap
  • Mustache everything
  • Pinterest (Original thoughts, are you still out there?)
  • [Insert noun here] Hacks
  • Foxes
  • Owls 
And, of course, there are some things I don't think I'll ever get over. (See also: football, polka dots, sunroof weather, and chocolate.)

What are you over?

Coffee Date? Yes, Please!

Oh, my. I love coffee dates! I'm glad Alli had this great idea today!

If we were to sit down for coffee, I'd probably be a little winded and let out a sigh as I sat down. I'd curl up on the floor, as I have a tendency to do, and get ready to soak up this time with you.

 Coffee Date

My cup would probably not have coffee in it, unless we happen to be at J and Mal's, where I would very nicely ask J to make me a latte. Otherwise, it's way too hot around here for that.

I would be so grateful we were able to plan a coffee date, especially since friend time has been a little sparse this summer. I'd tell you about our summer and the fun we've had. I'd let you in on the little secret that I'm more than ready for the routine and structure that the school year brings--even if it's only two days a week. I love knowing what days I can plan meetings, appointments, and fun without having to scramble to cram it all in!

I'd tell you how surprised I am at how much I'm enjoying our little house on the hill. It's been nice scaling back a little and living a more simple life. Less stuff, less clutter, lots of organizing. I've loved the challenge of keeping a place to small from seeming filled to the brim. (I might even tell you I've been trying to get a blog post together on organizing small spaces, but I'm intimidated by the photography of it.)

I'd take another deep breath, feel like I was doing all the talking, and I'd ask you about you and yours. What would you share?

Shake it Off!

1. It's Tuesday. Timehop told me this week I started Tuesday Ten a year ago. Yay, for 52-ish weeks of random thoughts.

2. I always have these big ideas for things that should be seemingly simple to carry out. This is mostly true in cases where birthday party invitations are involved. 

3. The new Taylor Swift song? I dig it. Don't judge. (It hasn't beat out Call Me Maybe or Party In the USA for me yet, though.) Also, I can't wait until Glee does it. You know they will.


4. Today in the store, my son used the phrase, "Speaking of..." correctly a minimum of three times. Where does he get this stuff?

5. Last night I got to hang with a house full of boys. Not the stinky kind. The still cute kind. They told me I was a princess, gave me a crown, and fixed my hair. Sign me up for this gig on the reg, please.

House of Boys

6. I use an unreasonable amount of lemon essential oil. It's my favorite for summer. 

7. This time next week, I'll be chomping at the bit ready for football in South Carolina! I can't wait! 

8. I shared my thoughts on library books on social media this morning. I'd love your take. 

9. Speaking of social media, thank you for sharing your hearts yesterday. I'm praying for your transitions! (About number four...) 

10. Did I mention football starts next week? Did I mention I get to go? Did I mention I'm excited?
