Crystal Fighters has been my Summer go-to music since their album was released in Europe in 2010. They make my heart happy! ♥
Re-reading this for the umpteenth time. It reminds me of my teenage years and how I struggled with anxiety and depression (still do, of course. It never really leaves you.) I haven’t read this in awhile and it just felt.. right.
I am a sucker for Summer television. I love trashy reality tv shows, game shows.. they are my guilty pleasures. I am not into the dating “reality” shows, however. They just don’t do it for me. Every Summer the man and I become obsessed with Big Brother UK. We’ve been watching it for years now. It is so much better than the American version! It isn’t quite the same as when it was on Channel 4 and hosted by Davina, but it is still awesomely addictive television viewing!
We’ve also been watching Eureka (still on the first season) and Parks and Recreation (beginning the third season) in bed to wind down for the night. Game of Thrones is done for the season, which is seriously one of the best television shows. EVER. True Blood is starting again.. woohoo – insane, soft core vampire porn!
Current obsession is anything lemon right now. Blueberry lemon tart, lemon sherbet. Anything and everything lemon!
Strawberry-lemonade is going to be my drink of the Summer! The occasional Pepsi.. I try and limit my caffeine-intake since I barely sleep as it is.
A house. Not necessarily this one, of course. Any house in a family-oriented area with a decent backyard, at least 3 bedrooms and a basement would work ; )
A shower! Little Miss preoccupies most of my time so a shower is a luxury these days!
According to the Weather Network, it is 14 degrees Celsius and a few clouds. The high is supposed to get up to 18 degrees and we are supposed to get thunder showers tonight. It has been hot and humid here for the past few days and we’ve had some thunder and lightning. Last night it completely down poured!
Really digging turquoise. Such a fun Summer color and currently my fave nail polish color.
Listening to Ava say “Mum Mum Mum” in her swing as she wakes up from a nap. Sure, she doesn’t quite associate it with me yet.. but it is still so damn adorable to hear!
The muggy feeling in the house and the fact I’ve had a migraine for a week now. Boo! Hiss! Also, all of this talk about “50 Shades of Grey.” Granted, I have yet to read the books (oh the horror!) I am a fan of a collection of literature. Whether it is biographical, chick lit, sci-fi.. I like it all. I love trashy, quick reads as well.. which this sounds like. I even enjoyed “Twilight” for what it was (but sparkling vampires? Really? REALLY?!) which Shades started out as a fan fic for. I am just sick of hearing about it. No offence to those who read it and loved it, but I just find it so.. tame. Again, I have not read it, only seen previews of it, heard what people have said about it, etc. But, the fact it is blowing up in the Mommy community makes me laugh. I couldn’t believe it was banned in some book stores as well as libraries. Really.. is it that bad? I guess it just takes a lot to shock me. I do have quite the imagination, bahaha. I may still read it.. eventually. Once the hype dies down some.
About going to see “Prometheus” with the hubby this weekend. We have only ever left the baby once in her 6.5 months though.. so this may be a challenge!
My Mom will be coming out in 2.5 weeks! It will be so nice to see her and for her to get to spend some time with Ava. It is hard living so far away from her! Getting excited about our mountain trip as well! Ava’s first time to the mountains.. should be interesting. And fun!
