i’m on a boat! no really.

Let’s talk numbers.
Fourteen.  That’s how many things I had written on my to-do list for this past weekend.
Zero. How many of those items I crossed off that list.
Two.  How many movies I watched this weekend.
One.  How many of those movies made me want to scratch my eyes out.  Couples Retreat.  Seriously, not even remotely funny or entertaining.
One.  Number of ceilings Adam painted last week.  More on that to come.
Two. How many days I spent sunbathing, swiming and enjoying every second out on the water.

But who am I to complain?  Summer is just filled to the brim and overflowing.  Every night, every day, every second has something scheduled.  And while I throw myself fullheartedly into the busy schedule, every once in a while I just need to breathe.  To step back.  And enjoy the sunshine on my face.  The smell of the lake.  Which conincidently smells like dead fish most of the time.  But this weekend it smelled fresh.  Maybe the fish-eating animals were taking a break as well.

I sat on a boat for two days and didn’t have a care in the world.
Until I burned the crap out of my part.
I so carefully applied sunscreen every two hours and it’s my hair that gets burned.  Do they make sunscreen for your head?  They should, because brushing my hair has become a major pain this week.

I ate doritos (shameful).  Licked the residue of too many cheetos off my fingers (sorry Megs).  And took amazing photos.  Like this.

Do not fear.  He made it over the railing on the bow and into the water.  And for reference, that railing is a cool two feet high.

But now it’s back to reality and our insanely busy schedule.  Until August.  Cause we’re going on vacation for a week…I might pee my pants with excitement.  TMI.  Speaking of…feeling the urge to guest post while I’m basking in more sun’n’surf?  Send me a note pronto and I’ll schedule you in.

Oh and while you’re at it…if you’re a fellow googler and read this, can you add yourself to google connect to the right?  I know most of my readers just kept the feed when I switched over to blogger, but being connected this way makes it muchhhh easier for me to contact you in reponse!  Love ya for it.

  1. Hello Nicole! Thank you so much for following my blog {Living Savvy}! Just read a few posts and your so cracking me up! I can’t wait to read older posts and see what is to come! glad you are enjoying summer… I am too!

    Have a great day!

  2. Regarding sunscreen for your head….get some of the spray sunscreen. Target carries it, and it works great. It’s the only way I made it through a week in Hawaii without burning my scalp. 🙂

    And can I just admit that I’m totally jealous of your summer and upcoming vacation? Because I am!
