Tuesday Fun...Taking It Easy!

Back at it with last weekend's updates...yesterday was the "typical Monday" and it was hard to get my butt in gear! I started out at the Social Security Office and DMV to begin the name change process and oh boy, what fun that was. Less painful than imagined, but still not too enjoyable--let's be honest, the boy's have it easy in that department.
Now, back to the weekend, which was all about taking it easy.
Friday, we hit up Macy's and Bed, Bath, and Beyond to begin the gift exchange/return shopping spree. After all was said and done, we got our new set of pots and pans and everyday flatware--yes, old people over here. Then, we met Mom and Dad at Chuy's for dinner and drinks.
Saturday morning, I hit the gym, then went on my work clothes shopping adventure. Fast forward 3 hours and I was able to walk out of the mall with some great new finds...not to mention I saved a ton of $$ because everyone was having major summer sales--score!
That afternoon, Jeff and I did some car shopping, and then joined up with the Grunkes for a fun and laidback evening cookout. They wined and dined us with peach pork chops, grilled sweet potatoes, green beans, and the most sinful caramel ice cream--worth every bite though!
Sunday, we finally made it back to church and Jeff and I both agreed it was great to be back in worship. Then we headed to my parent's house where the plan was to swim and layout, though summer showers prevented that escapade so we took to Scrabble, movies on the couch, and grilling for dinner. Fantastic way to wrap up another fun weekend.
So now it's Tuesday morning--and my mind is a bowl of jelly...I can't seem to focus today so let's talk randomness...
1. I gave in to ABC and watched another episode of The Bachelorette last night--LAME! Why do I do it? I'm sorry Ashley, but you look ridiculous pining after nasty sleazeball Bentley and I am glad the guys let you know it...and that sequined dress with the hair bun--yikes.
2. I am so excited the 4th of July is almost here! I am ready for fireworks, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, and a 3-day weekend...it just can't get here soon enough.
3. Retailers are already emailing out the new wave of fall boots that are coming in...seriously? It's 85 degrees outside people--the last thing I want to think about is fall and winter...give it a rest already!
4. So, once the wedding is over and the day has finally past--what does a girl do with her time? She plans vacations...Yes, I have to keep my mind occupied so we're in the middle of planning our long anticipated NYC Christmas Adventure--4 couples, Broadway shows, wining and dining, and taking in the city sights--what could be better? I am over the moon happy to finally experience my favorite city with my best friends and their beaus.

Alright, enough for now--I'm on the hunt to find a fun, yet simple DIY project to occupy some of my free time this weekend so we'll see what I can come up with. I'm ready to whip out some spray paint or the glue gun and get crazy! Happy Tuesday...tomorrow I'll finally be back with another wedding recap--woo hoo!
