a. I have tickets to see the Black Keys. FINALLY. I have wanted to see them for years.
b. MY HERBS. THEY'RE GROWING. BARELY. BUT STILL. That banshee screech you heard last night was me shrieking in delight. I was honestly expecting nothing to happen.
c. Listening to the Avett Brothers Pandora station while getting ready in the morning. It helps my mood every single time.
d. This isn't necessarily something happy, but it's been on my mind since I've been buried in the same 600 page book for a few months. Sometimes I think about what I would do if I was told I'm going to die soon. Even though there are countless places I'd give my left elbow to see, every single time I'm overcome with panic and anxiety over the books I won't have time to read. My mind instantly goes to my Goodreads list that's longer than the marathon you just blogged about, and I become overwhelmed with the need to read them all before I die. A totally normal thing to worry about, right?
e. Two different people this week have commented on the fact that I have color in my skin. I was so happy I didn't let them in on the secret that it's mostly just my freckles coming out to play.
f. Watermelon. I've been craving it with my whole being. James and I devoured one in two days, and if I don't get another one soon I might snap.
g. James and I like to walk through the neighborhood behind ours in the evenings. It's your typical upper middle class 'hood: pretty houses, pretty yards, and it sits on a golf course. It's like a real life Pinterest board for my eyeballs. I point at all my favorite houses (the one with clock tower in the front yard, the one with dark blue paint, you get it) and mentally pin in it in the "you wish" section of my brain. There are sound effects and everything. HGTV should hire us for our commentary.
"The cozy factor of that front porch is top notch."
"Those red shutters are telling me to move in and host a family dinner."
"This house feels like Christmas."
"I think they would be a lot happier if they did something about that brown trim."
"This house feels like there's a library in there somewhere."
"They're hippies. They are. Just look at those flowerbeds."
Welcome to a night with the two of us.
h. Checking the weather every 5 minutes all day long. I just really need to see if there are any pop-up thunderstorms, ok? I need to be prepared.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go fix this shoddy internet so Pandora will start streaming again.
