I really do not know where the summer is going. I know time flies when you're having fun or whatever but I wish it would just slow down. I feel like I sound like a new mom who's telling their kid to not grow up so fast.
August is my favorite month and I think it will be over before you know it - this week went surprisingly fast; next week we only work Monday and Tuesday because my brother gets MARRIED ON SATURDAY; then the next week I'm out of town for work. Before I know it it'll be Labor Day weekend with Halloween right around the corner! I'm sorry, end rant.
01 | I think I spent a good 45 minutes last night watching vlogs from the Accent Vlog Link-Up. I didn't do one myself. I have vlogged before but it's just so.awkward. So props to any of you who got up the courage and did it. I have truly enjoyed watching them. It's funny how I read some people's blogs, send e-mails to them, tweet them nearly everyday and yet I've never seen them in person or even heard their voice. How weird is this?! So it was fun to hear their voice and actually feel like they're a real person. Plus it's always reassuring to find out your blog crushes really are real people and not some computer alien or creep hiding behind a computer screen.
02 | Well Parker didn't get the job he interviewed for last Friday. We found out Wednesday early afternoon and were pretty bummed. Job searching is such a not-fun process - I feel bad for people who have to do it for months without success. It's like you do all this work, put in a ton of time searching and prepping, and even sweat your butt off in a hot suit and tie on the first day of August, only to find out you're just not the right fit. Bum city. On a happier note, he does have another interview this coming Monday. Fingers-crossed.
03 | Do you think it's weird to sponsor another blogger, pay for the highest spot, and not get an e-mail from them at all regarding your sponsorship now being live including information about your guest post date and all that other jazz? Am I supposed to send an e-mail asking information about my current sponsorship? Maybe I'm being too needy here but I think this is weird. And I would love to know any thoughts you have...
04 | Parker is gone for his last hockey weekend of the summer and since we'll be heading to the lake already next Tuesday for wedding festivities I'll just be sticking around here this weekend. I have a mental to-do list including clean our apartment, go to the farmer's market, exercise, and a few other things that might take a backseat to blogging or watching Revenge. We'll see.
05 | If you do one thing this weekend you need to make this drink that I shared yesterday. I don't care if you don't like tequila, you'll like this. If anything, drinking a bevvy with a bobber floating in it is something everyone should do at least once in their life.
I feel like this post was kind of ranty and I'm sorry about that. I guess this is why we blog, right? Because we can write what we're thinking and share what we're feeling and sometimes, afterwards we feel just a little bit better. If you made it to the end, thanks for putting up with me today. And I hope you all have a great weekend!
