{Day 70: Sweet peaches. Hello summer!}

I can’t believe it’s already June, and another week gone by! Where does the time go? I can’t say that this week was too eventful and I’m happy for it. There’s been enough drama as of late. I’d say the highlights of my week came after hours. In particular, making the “crazy” decision to drive down the sunset strip in rush hour traffic to the Sundance Theater to celebrate their new $5 Tuesday movie screenings to see Jim Mickle’s new film, Cold in July. I really liked it. It went on a journey you wouldn’t quite expect. I can’t say I’ve seen too many films that do a good job of mixing thriller-like intensity, with humor (à la Don Johnson…who was fantastic by the way).

Aside from that, I made it a point to head home most nights after a long day, be a loner, and relax solo. I think one of the best things about living alone is getting in, making homemade pasta for dinner (or grabbing Chinese take-out on the way home), vegging on the couch, watching whatever I damn well please. I’ll admit, I have an affinity for watching cheesy movies (I found True Lies on HBO Go one night and had a blast reliving that one!). And sometimes a gal just needs a good Sex and the City fix to unwind after a draining day.

Though summer doesn’t officially join us for another 2 weeks according to the calendar, it’s pretty much here if you ask me. I’ve had the best time devouring sweet fruit (hello peaches!), wearing dresses, rockin’ sandals and bright lips, smiling often as I step out into the temperate LA sunshine. My favorite time of year has arrived and I can’t wait to start planning my summer. I’m especially looking forward to those lazy Saturdays on the beaches of Malibu – followed by a fruity cocktail in a watermelon shell at Paradise Cove. Once I’ve made the trek there in the very near future – I’ll know I’ll be in that summer state of mind. From there, it’s only a matter of time before those 100° plus days make their way and you’ll start hearing me complain about HOT it is…and how my electricity bill has doubled because I run my A/C non-stop.

As far as the weekend goes, I’m undoubtedly most excited to FINALLY start John Green’s The Fault in our Stars. I’ve been on the waiting list for months at the library to download a copy on my Kindle. Though I hear it’s a tough read, it’s supposed to be pretty spectacular.

I made it to the final month of the 100 Happy Days Challenge – 26 more days to go…a  few of my favorite moments posted.

Have a great weekend. xx


{Day 73: It’s summer. New sandals required. Especially, when on massive clearance!}


{Day 68: Yeah, I’m pretty giddy about this. One week until Channing and I get to spend some quality time together. 🙂 }


{Day 71: “Cold in July,” in June.}


{Day 69: A mini cupcake surprise from my BF. (I’m noticing a pattern of me holding food…hmmm).}

  1. Hi! Where did you get the sandals? I love them!
    They have Kindle waiting lists at the library?! Wow, a lot has changed since my last visit. Although they are building a new library near me which I’m looking forward to taking the Lil Guy to. I used to love going to the library when I was younger.
    We’ve invited some new friends over this weekend for a BBQ aaaaand I have my first meeting with my first client!! Let me back up… I have completed an HTML/CSS course and I’m fulfilling a goal of mine by working for myself as a blog/web designer. Fingers crossed! Very exciting. Thanks for letting me ramble….
    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    • Happy Friday, V! (I hope this the same V, I don’t recognize that site – a test for your new client!?!) Anywho, the sandals are Guess – thank you! I got them from Off Broadway.

      Yes, libraries now have electronic downloads for Kindles and e-readers, which is great because my concern when buying my Kindle was that I would end up buying more books (rather than saving $ by checking them out at the library), which I have but luckily the library has helped me manage that a bit.

      So exciting to hear about your web design move!! Unfortunately, I started out on a hosted version of WordPress to test my blogging commitment and still haven’t taken the plunge to a self-hosted platform after 2 years! It was a goal of mine to make the switch and now its just finding time to learn everything involved and some general laziness, though it’s on my list of things to do. I’m worried given the amount of content that I have that it will be a pain! I might hire you 🙂 lol.

      Now I’m starting to ramble!! It sounds like you have a great weekend ahead planned. Good luck with your client!! 🙂
