I'm well aware of my serious lack of blogging over the past week-ish. I wish I could just say, "I don't have anything to blog about" but the reality is that's not true! I've actually been doing lots of fun things and enjoying lots of new things.
I've just been lazy, and distracted, and actually busy at work.
So what have I been doing? Well I can for sure tell you that I've been eating and I HAVEN'T been exercising. Because I'm a bum and that's all I have to say about that.
Last week I enjoyed some days with the girls I babysit for. I was asked by the mom to take a couple of days off work to sit for them the whole day. Of course I jumped at the chance (more pay, more fun, lesser hours? yes, please). It was great fun, and the good news is that the baby FINALLY got used to me.
We've been like strangers in the night for the past year (she's 11 mos) since I really only sit for this family during the evening, she was always asleep! At the end of Friday, we were best friends...which is so nice, because I adore babies/toddlers and was super sad that she hated me.
The girls and I enjoyed beach time, games, walks and playing outside. I loved it!
I wish I had pictures, but I don't. Not only have I been terrible at blogging, eating and exercising, I've been terrible at taking pictures.
I also spent the weekend soaking up the sun and just enjoying summer.
And napping, I've been doing a lot of napping. Probably too much napping, like I've gotten into the habit of napping after work...oops!
Saturday night was a big deal because I went to my first rodeo of the season (it opens up July 4th). Which also means I got to spend time with my dear friend Eileen, who I never get to see as often as I would like.
In the summer it's common to see the Painted Pony truck, with this number in tow:
All class. What can I say? I have a thing for cowboys.
With that said I have a confession to make.
I bought a country CD.
Yes, you heard right.
A country CD.
I loathe country music. I especially loathe country singers that infiltrate my pop music airways (Taylor Swift, Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood etc).
So what CD did I buy?
The Band Perry.
And I flipping LOVE it.
This is so unlike me.
You may as well throw me a cowboy hat and some boots and shout YEEHAW because I've clearly missed my calling as a cowgirl.
So that's it really. That's where I've been and what I've been up to. I wish I had something way more interesting than babysitting, sitting in the sun and blasting country music out my car windows...but you're out of luck this time.
Oh and PS, I am DEVASTATED that Ryan was shown the door on The Bachelorette this week. You all know how much I loved him. Do you think he likes cowgirls??
