Hot weekends (like the last one) are for…


… drinking iced coffee (with star ice cubes!)
… early morning walks from the auto shop (even the car thought it was too hot – water pump broke).
… watching all the Euro-Cup football (and seeing Germany win! They made it to the quarterfinals!).
… learning a lesson to not spill dairy-based beverages in your car in 100+F weather (yuck!).
… popsicles.
… short shorts and flipflops.
… SPF 100+.
… postponing laundry for another week (since we’re not wearing much anyway).
… late night chats on the balcony.
… lots of watering my little potted garden.
… vacation planning.
… attempting to bikini-shop and failing miserably.
… refraining from buying yet another pair of cute sandals.
… sending cards to lovely people.
… reading.
How was your weekend?


  1. Sounds like a great summer weekend. My mom bought a bikini at Target this weekend, and it’s really cute, have you checked there?

  2. Of course those are star shaped ice cubes, I was wondering when you posted this on one IG. So bummer about your car :( but yay for shorts and flip flops! Although here in CA we can wear our flip flops year round yeah?! :)

  3. i want your weekend. seriously. next year i’m SO there! HDGDL!!!

  4. Other than the car issues, it sounds like you had a great weekend! Our weekend was one of the first largely unplanned weekends that we’ve had in a long time.

  5. Ug. I hate cars. HATE. I am glad you had a good weekend though! I just came over the hill from Santa Cruz today and boy is it HOT on this side of the mountains! I think I will go have an iced coffee (round ice) right now! You’ve inspired me!

  6. vacation planning and reading sound like the best, two of my favorite things!

  7. Sounds like a great weekend (except the car stuff – that is annoying!).

    My weekend was wonderful. I ran with my group and then hung out with my family at the lake, which was so relaxing and fun. And I started and finished a book!

  8. That heatwave you just had has been creeping over to my city! It’s so crazy hot out right now I don’t even know what to do with myself- I couldn’t even enjoy a coffee this morning for fear of melting after drinking it. Ha! Short shorts and flip flops have been my motto these last two days. And skirts, lots of salad, lemonade & cooling off in the basement!

  9. This whole list sounds incredible. Late night balcony chats are the best. I love love love those ice cubes too!

  10. Bikini shopping is evil. Pure and simple and absolute evil.
