What's In My Summer Bag?

Don't you just love the paused picture of me? Oh so flattering, I know.
As promised I wanted to share another video with you all!
Here you get to see inside the mysterious world of a woman's bag. 
Growing up I remember my dad and brother being afraid to grab something out of my purse if they needed if their hand would get trapped or they would find out things about me they didn't want to know. 
I am enamored with watching these videos on youtube and have always wanted to do one. Please let me know if you end up doing one and share the link!
Again, I'll be posting more videos as I think it's a fun way to interact with you!
We've already reached the end of Wednesday so here's to only a couple of more days until the weekend! Is it sad I'm counting them down? about 6 days until my 2yr wedding anniversary?! Crazy crazy. Alright I'm off to bed....have a lovely nights rest or if you're reading this in the morning, as I know my mom will, I hope your coffee is just right.
Talk to you soon,

Seeing this drawing makes me long for the beach and a vacation away from all of the schedules and due dates that consume our lives as of late.
I'm dreaming of the day, hopefully sooner than later, when my love and I can sit with the ocean at our feet.
Until then...

Cruel Cruel Summer

Good Evening!
We’ve begun a new week in the midst of a steamy summer and I already want fall.
It surprises me when I watch the news people talking about sky-high temperatures. Has heat in the summer really surprised you? Did you live in a land of dry coolness, because living in the south is always very humid and hot from mid May through September. When I say hot, I mean it easily reaches 100 if not a few degrees higher.
If ever I were to spend a summer away, it would be in San Francisco where it is always 60 outside. I’m just not a summer person…I don’t do well with being a sweaty mess.
 On another note…our weekend was so nice, I had Friday off which was such a treat! Poor Adam had to study the entire time, though he did get our tires changed on Saturday. (Thanks, Love!) He is definitely clocking in 10+ hours a day in the books. Taking the bar, or at least studying for it, has become such a large hill to climb. I hear from his friends from law school of how they are doing and how they’re freaking out. My heart goes out to all of you! I am in awe of your ability to retain such an enormous amount of information and be under great stress. For hubby and his classmates from Memphis, the first testing day is next Wednesday. {Say a prayer, please!}
 As I said, Friday became a day for me to rest. I hung out with friends that night for dinner but all of the plans made previously, completely changed. Regardless, we had fun eating at Mafiaoza's, a pizza joint in the 12th South district of Nashville.
Saturday I spent with two beautiful ladies, Miss Holli in particular, getting a green juice from whole foods and browsing around the mall.  Love girl time.
Sunday my parents invited us over for lunch and I was able to see my brother, Josh!! I miss him so much and don’t get to see him as often as I’d like. We all (minus Adam, he was studying) watched “Life As We Know It” and I charmed everyone’s pants off  by bringing it over. Such a cute movie…
Also because my grandfather will be moving in with my parents for a bit I was given the assignment to go through my crap from my old room. I found about 634,752,194 journals from 1994-2002 filled with “Oh my gosh I just don’t know if he could ever like me” and “Like, can you believe she told Cassidy to get her own?”. I was pure drama at 12. I started to read them when I got home as I was organizing and had to just put them away…life at 12 was lived in a bubble…a dramatic bubble. I’d rather not relive those years again.
So here we are at Monday, pretty uneventful though I was able to fully straighten up my house {folded laundry was piling up everywhere} and grab groceries.
I filmed a new video and I hope to post soon, but until then I’m going to get my sleep on.

Have a wonderful night, I will talk to you soon…

As I have the day off, I decided to clear the cobwebs from this poorly neglected blog.
June flew by as has July already and the summer is hotter than ever. I have been working on a few new things for this little world of mine and I hope it is received well!
Lovelies, enjoy your Friday and the beginning to a beautiful summer weekend. May these next few nights be filled with warm breezes and breathtaking sunsets.

Talk to you soon,
xoxo .bd
