Things on my mind today:

  • It’s hot outside. And when it’s hot outside I want to wear as little as possible. No necklaces, no bracelets, and no sleeves. Thank goodness I can wear sleeveless to work.
  • I bought these shoes two years ago on a whim and I love them. Unfortunately, they are faux leather and, as such, they aren’t holding up very well. But I can’t find a suitable replacement just yet.
  • Today is Inspiration Monday and today’s photo reminded me that I really want a skirt in some kind of summery print. Floral or bright colors or something. Still on the lookout for one that catches my eye.
  • The last time I recall taking a picture with this top on I feel like my arms were a lot slimmer. But, let me tell you something, that is MUSCLE in these arms now and it helps me do amazing tricks at trapeze.
  • I spent my weekend doing incredibly fun things (standup paddleboarding, drinking sangria, hanging with friends, going to the zoo and riding bikes with my husband) so I didn’t get my DIY Jean Shorts tutorial done yet. I hope to have it done by Wednesday but I’m running a 5K race every night this week (yes, I’m crazy) so who knows?

And with that, I’m off to bask in the air conditioning in my office at work before the sweatfest that will be tonight’s Burgers & Beer 5K!

What are you up to this week?

Reminder! I’m over on Chippmunk talking about the great deals I get from The Limited and I would love it if you voted for me! Not only is it awesome blog exposure for me but there’s chance I could win a $100 gift card. And you know I’d pick The Limited and show you how to get the most for $100!
