Okay, now I'm back. How was your weekend? Mine was good. We went to the Tomoto-Art-Festival in East Nashville. The Tomato Fest is always so much fun and this year proved to be no exception. Miraculously, 10 of our friends showed up at the exact same spot at the exact same time. (Unheard of) So we were able to wander the booths, grab some BBQ and hang out in front of the misting fans together. By 1:00 we were all exhausted and went home to take naps, watch movies, and lounge.
At 3:00 I scratched my neck and discovered that my lack of sunscreen was a costly error. I was burned everywhere my tank top didn't cover. Oh well. Such is the cost for a great time in the sun, and I figured being as red as a tomato was my way of honoring the festivities... no? no. Next time I'll remember.
|That's me (in the ball cap closet to the camera) rushing towards a booth with cool chalkboard frames... completely unaware that my back was sizzling...|
Sprinkle in some food, an easy cookout with friends Friday night, a quick shopping extravaganza, and a few tears during the recap of the Olympics (prior to the Closing Ceremonies) and that's my weekend... Speaking of Closing Ceremonies... what were your thoughts? Highlights? I especially enjoyed the Spice Girls (don't judge.) I actually prepared myself for being sorely disappointed BUT their energy was pretty awesome and those cars? Too cool. Might be cheesy but I loved it. Well done, ladies.
Also, my father found my New Years Resolutions from 1993... My favorite one was to "Be More Igreable." Say what?!? I thought 8 year old resolutions were like "Learn how to do that cool thing on my roller blades." but "Be More Igreable?" Hilarious. (Obviously I meant agreeable, don't worry, I'm a slightly better speller now.) My complete list of all of my New Years Resolutions circa 1993 coming soon.
AND... last but not least, my sister Maddie has begun a series today that you HAVE to check out. I read her first post this morning and about spit my coffee out. Spoiler alert: it involves stinky armpits, unicorns, and soliloquies. You won't be disappointed. Head over HERE to see what I'm talking about.
