Go Go Go

Dress: Francesca's // Shoes: Steve Madden // Bracelets: c/o Payton Woodcraft // Earrings: c/o Christine Marie Studio // Cake: c/o Tookies

This weekend was a blur.
Go. Go. Go.

Friday, we went to a wedding at a garden in Emmett.
(And yes, I enjoyed cake before the wedding. I needed a snack!)
It was super hot, but so fun.
I busted out my dancing skills, which pretty much cleared the dance floor,
hammed it up at the photobooth,
and shared a slow dance with Daniel.
What a beautiful evening it was.

Saturday, I watched Daniel play softball with the Air Guard team,
ate a delicious heaping portion of sushi,
and watched a Steven Seagal movie.

Sunday was all about church,
lunch out with everyone,
beach volleyball, park football,
playing with the cutest chihuahua/corgi puppy I've ever seen,
eating peanut butter pie for dinner,
and finally taking a moment to answer emails.

I always remember summers as being the time to relax.
Enjoy the weather.
Enjoy life.
These days, Daniel and I just can't seem to slow down for a moment.

My end-of-summer goals include the following:
Appreciate the small things.
Try to not get frustrated when I take 5 days to answer emails.
Don't spend all my time behind a computer screen.
Take in every moment with a smile.
Live in the moment.
Forget plans... just live.

Don't worry about not answering your emails quickly. You are really busy and have a lot of fans on your blog.

And I am glad you had fun this weekend. I had a good time with my boy friend for my birthday on Saturday.

I haven't been invited to anything church related in a long time though. The last time I was able to attend something was in June and before that was about two years ago. :P

I loved your end-of-summer goals, but especially: Forget plans...just live. This will be nearly impossible for me but I'm dying to try, because that sounds SO nice and SO right! Enjoy this busy time in your life, you might be really bored one day :)

perfectly priya

Cute dress! Your weekend sounds great. About your summer goals (I am leaving off the "end of" part) - AWESOME! It would do me a lot of good to apply the "forget plans...just live" one. Everyday, is a great day full of SOMETHING, who cares if it's been planned or if something planned fell through, just live the day and enjoy what DID happen.

Hope your week is full of planned and unplanned goodness!

You look gorgeous in these photos and I love love love your dress! I'm the same slacker with emails- 5 days is actually good! Lately I've been shedding that obligatory feeling that gets connected with blogging. I feel so much better without that pressure to answer every single comment. Live your life girl!! You are doing a beautiful job :)

Danielle said...

You look absolutely gorgeous Aunie! That dress is just darling on you. I'm so glad to hear you had a good past few days and don't worry about the comments and emails -- just have fun and enjoy the last few days of summer. That's exactly what I've been doing lately!
