First off, thank you SO much for the amazing discussion and comments in response to my last post! Not only was everyone incredibly respectful of one another’s opinions but the points you raised were so eloquent and brilliantly expressed. You all certainly got me thinking!
Everyone’s week off to a good start so far?! Mine definitely is! I mean how could it not be with beautiful blue skies and hot weather everyday!
With that being said, I am sorry for everyone that has had to experience violent weather across the country lately. I hope you and your families stay safe.
There are always a ton of blogging awards floating around the web and it’s so nice when a fellow blogger nominates you for one of them! Tayla was nice enough to nominate me for the One Lovely Blog award! Thanks girl!
This is one of the awards that requires you to share 7 facts about yourself….but I’ve done this SO many times that I hardly have any random things about myself to share! Plus, I like finding things out about people through their actions and words rather than them just coming out and telling me random things.
So instead I’ll just share 7 random thoughts I’ve had over the past few days!
Veggies from your own garden automatically taste better.
I got my first small harvesting from my garden over the weekend and promptly ate all of my pickings! The green beans were so crunchy and sweet and the tomatoes were perfectly ripe!
2. I kinda sorta want to read 50 Shades of Grey…
[God, I hope it’s not that bad!]
Let the eye rolling commence. I know, I know…apparently it is written horribly and has a dull plot…but with all the chatter about it, I have to admit its caught my interest! I just have to see what all the hub bub is about (<-wow did I really just say ‘hub bub’).
3. I need to go fruit picking NOW!
People all around me keep talking about going blueberry and strawberry picking…and its about time I do some picking myself! Not only is it fun, but you definitely get your money’s worth.
4. Honeydew is freaking amazing!
I have never been a big honeydew fan (that along with papaya, fresh mango, watermelon, and cantaloupe are the only fruits I don’t like) so I haven’t purchased it in forever. I didn’t think my taste for it would have changed but my dad had some the other day and on a whim I tried a bite. It was AMAZING. Going to the store to get a whole one all for myself today
5. I much prefer hot weather to any other type of climate.
Can I admit that I think I actually enjoy sweating? Yeah that might be a little gross…but something about it just makes me feel goooood. And alive!
6. I love the 30 day blogging challenge that Jenny came up with!
I am going to try and participate on the day’s that the prompts jump out at me…today’s prompt is to come up with goals for July. Here’s a few fun ones I have for this month…
-finish buying the things I need for my dorm room
-keep working on my blog design and learn more about website coding
-get more hours at work (mama needs some monaaaay)
-break out of my shell/rigidity and do something WILD!
-take a weekend trip to Toronto
Nothing to serious…but just some little things to keep in the back of my mind.
7. Can someone please fill me in on the label app that everyone has been using lately for their iPhone pics?!
They make everything look so cool! But I can’t seem to find the right one in the app store! Help a blogger out!
Have you jumped on the 50 Shades bandwagon? (and in relation to that…has anyone seen Magic Mike yet?! PLEASE tell me it was good!)
Is there a fruit out there that you don’t like?
PS. Welcome to Buffalo…
