Things I Love About Today

  1. Warm weather.  I think it was 85 degrees and sunny today.  I drove with the sun roof open and all the windows down - it was that nice!  I know it's not yet here to stay, but I still enjoyed it all weekend.  It's so fun to see everyone outside enjoying the sun after a long Chicago winter.
  2. Flip flops.  Mom and I went through the extensive shoe collection in the garage this weekend, and I got rid of about 20 pairs (no joke).  And while I was at it, I busted out the flip flops and wore them all weekend long!  It was nice to be able to show off my DIY pedicure complete with shatter polish. 
  3. The swing.  For the first time in way too long, I spent a couple hours hanging out in our backyard swing (It's the best gift I ever bought someone and get to use myself!).  I love listening to the sounds of spring and feeling the warm breeze on my face.  It's so relaxing!
  4. Time to Read.   While I was lounging in that swing, I finally started a book I've been wanting to read since August: Mockingjay.  It's the third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, and its off to a great start.  I highly recommend this series to anyone and everyone. 
  5. Starbucks.  I sipped on a passion fruit iced tea while visiting with a friend today.  It was the perfect afternoon beverage for a day like today.
  6. Grilling out.  Nothing in the world compares to my daddy's steaks on the grill.  Nothing.  Thanks for a delicious dinner, Dad!

I wish every weekend could be this perfect!  Hope yours was as good as mine!
