Insta Update

It’s Monday again. On Thursday I am heading down to Florida for the first time in over a year! My beloved Grand Big is getting MARRIED!!

Anyway, here is what my weekend looked like through my iPhone:

I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of comfortable sandals to wear in Italy when we’re walking around Rome and Naples. My dad and I are also going to Athens, and I know better than to wear my Steven Madden flats around the cobble stone roads. When I go in the winter it’s easier to wear comfortable shoes. But I just don’t have anything that’s comfortable and practical to wear in 90 degree heat. I stopped by Rack Room Shoes to see if they had anything in my price range and found these two cute pairs:

Unfortunately, when I got home and walked around in them a little bit more, they just didn’t seem to fit right. I took them back and they didn’t come in the half size I needed, so they just got returned. =(

MOM to the rescue. She bought me two pairs at DSW – a pair of brown Merrells and a cute pair of cream Easy Spirits. The Merrells aren’t winning any fashion awards, but they will do.

My across the street neighbors gave us some delicious fresh cucumber

Mike and I splurged on our dinner date – I got a margarita, Mike had a beer, we BOTH had pasta, and then topped it off by sharing a brownie sundae.

I’d also had a peanut butter cookie for lunch that day. I’m so healthy.

I played with the cats…

And one morning last week, I let Bella out before I left for work. When I went to let her back, she was DRIPPING wet. I could not for the life of me figure out how she got so drenched – there weren’t any puddles in the yard and the sun was shining. Eventually I realized she’d just been rolling around in the dew-soaked grass like a moron. She was happy as a clam.

Happy Monday!
