Isn’t it funny how a short week can seem so long?
We’ve had a pretty busy week around here, considering I only had to work three days! I am counting down to vacation, though: we leave two weeks from today. I’m coming for you, Hilton Head.
Target sold out of the beach bag I wanted months ago. I’ve been stalking their site but finally decided on this beach bag option. It’s still really cute, and, based on pictures I’ve seen on Instagram, it’s huge! I imagine I’ll be able to fit lots of books (and booze) into it. Also – what are you reading? Looking for some good beach reads!
A few of you asked about these glasses after I posted a pic on Instagram Monday. Hard to believe, but they’re from Walmart! I tried to find them online, but, unfortunately, you’re going to have to shop for them in-store. They come in a few designs, including flamingos and cacti. The best part? They’re only $1! Worth the trip (if you can stomach it!). They’d make a fun gift, too.
My allergies are not playing around this summer. I’m trying to take less medicine (especially since I receive weekly allergy shots), so I’ve been diffusing oils in the evening. I’m currently loving a blend of lavender, lemon, and peppermint. I put two drops of each in the diffuser before bed, or while we’re watching tv. If nothing else, the combination smells amazing.
Emily from Authentically Emmie shared one of the best blog posts I’ve ever read this week. If you have ever struggled with your weight, or shamed someone else for THEIR struggle, please give “This is Me, Existing” a read. We need more of her in the blog world.
I am once again trying to dip my toe into the freelance world. As most of you know, I’m a technical writer and curriculum development specialist by day, and I truly love writing and have the time to work on projects. I will be offering resume’ and cover letter editing/formatting if you need some guidance (don’t we all?), among others. I’ve added some information to my Work With Me page if you’re interested in my services. And, if you’re inclined to share, I would sincerely appreciate it.
How was your short week? Any blog posts you loved? What are your plans for the weekend?
