I dropped the ball on sharing my 30 days of fun things with you on a weekly basis. I blame vacation: I was too relaxed to worry about uploading photos and writing blog posts. Thus, I completely lost track of all of my fun things and the days on which I did them. I’m pretty sure I missed a few days here and there, too.
But I want to share the ones that I do remember, so, in no particular order, here are some of the random fun things I did:
I got a pedicure! My first one ever! And I think I’m hooked. I chose turquoise polish to match the dress I wore to Joe’s cousin’s wedding. Incidentally, the pedicure was also the first thing I crossed off on my 30 by 30 list (which I really need to get cracking on). (And in case someone asks, the shoes are a $3.00 pair I bought at the grocery store, of all places).
During the week we were on vacation, Joe took me to see the final installment of Harry Potter. I managed to unearth $35.00 worth of movie theatre gift cards in my wallet, so it was free, including snacks and drinks. The movie was amazing. And so was the date with my husband.
We don’t do this very often, but some nights it’s just fun to eat in front of the TV. It’s a nice treat for everyone. On this night, we watched Cars. SHOCKER.
We’ve had some gorgeous, mild, lovely weather this month -- perfect for driving with the windows down. I usually hate having my hair in my face, but one evening on my way home from work, I just decided I was going to let it blow around. It didn’t bother me nearly as much as I thought it would; it was actually kind of nice.
One evening when the boys were driving me absolutely insane, I used an almost-overdue book as an excuse to escape the house. I wandered around the library shelves for a good half hour, just picking out random books. This is the reason I currently have 30 books on loan from the library, but that silent, peaceful half hour was totally worth the pressure I now feel to read all of them before they’re due.
We did some really fun little things as a family this summer, too, which I was going to share in this post, but there are so many pictures that it would just be way, way too long. So maybe I’ll write about those tomorrow.
Wow, three posts on three consecutive days! It’s good to have goals.
