Sweet Summer Time

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Can I just say it feels so weird that it is already summer again? It seems like just yesterday I was riding in a truck attached to a boat & jet skis headed to the lake. I'm hoping this summer is slow & not as fast as these past two semesters were! I got back to my hometown yesterday. I brought a duffel full of clothes, a bag full of shoes & my hair & makeup supplies. I'm hoping it lasts me & I don't have an 'OH NO' moment where I remember something significant I forgot back at school since it's 2.5 hours away. Let's hope not! Yesterday when I got back Josh came over almost immediately. I stopped counting the days we were apart because I am learning to focus on the positive, but it felt like a month. Pretty sure it was. Anyway, he came over & I got some sweet kisses then we headed out to a lake on the out-skirts of our town. Once we got out there we wished we would have brought some cold drinks & lawn chairs but we'll put that idea to use another time. I think we were just happy to be together, realizing it was summer again and we have 3 months to remain inseparable--just like last summer.

I got up this morning & had a good work out at the gym in town I used to work at then got ready & Josh and I decided to go out to Woolaroc (an old cowboy/ indian style museum in Bartlesville that every child in this town grows up going to.) I hadn't been in about 4 years & Josh hadn't in about 10 so it was a lot of fun remembering things we did when we were little.

Of all the random things, Woolaroc has a petting zoo. 
I am obsessed with this guy!
Pretty sure these will be giving up nightmares for days...
I know these are SO dark but since Picnik shut down i'm without an editor :( Also, my iPhoto is frozen on my Mac & I have no idea how to fix it!
This talking buffalo has been sucking up my trash since age 3. 
Tomorrow night I am planning on making a garlic chicken recipe with veggies & twice baked potatoes for dinner. Wish me luck! I made a cookie/ cake dessert tonight & it was awful! I think I did at least 3 things wrong. Whoops :(
I'm also planning on learning the fundamentals of my sewing machine & sewing in general in the next few days. I'm starting my online summer classes Monday so I feel like I need to fit a lot in during the weekend. Speaking of, my lovely best friend Emily is back from the middle east & we are spending Saturday together catching up! I seriously cannot wait. I was missing a part of me & now she's back!! 
I hope everyone else is having a great start to summer. What are some things you have planned during your down time?? I'd love to hear!! Have a great Friday :)
