I am Groot

Hellllooooo! How is everyone doing on this fine Tuesday? This week is a short week ahead; since it is Labor Day weekend, we have a 4 day weekend!! Woo hoo! What about you? Do you get an extended weekend also to celebrate the last weekend of summer?! (Which I hate typing. The dreaded last weekend of summer. Boo hoo.)

Yesterday was a great day around here. Did you know the Lilly Pulitzer sale started yesterday and is going on until tomorrow?! No? Well, you better get your pretty little behind over to their website right now and WAIT in line to get onto the website to buy all the things from the sale! I had to wait for over two hours yesterday to finally get in, but when I did…..I bought three dresses. Let me tell you, anxiety was sky rocket and I don’t think I was breathing during my whole shopping experience. Items in your cart are not guaranteed and are not being held, if they sell out, oh well, you’re out of luck my friend. So, GO! Get it all! If you have a store near you, don’t just walk…RUN! 🙂

I went to a farm stand with my Mama to get some delicious cucumbers and fresh peaches. The peaches are a bit sour, but still good. My favorite kinds are white peaches, and unfortunately I haven’t seen any of those there in years. (I tried to take a better picture but a worker was staring at me like a weirdo. Who takes pictures of cucumbers? Me..duhhh!) Cucumbers from the farm stand cannot even compare to grocery store cucumbers…it’s like a totally different taste. img_1523

Michael & I went to Toys R Us to find a birthday present for Gio, and after walking around for a good half hour, we ended up getting him a Batman robot cave toy. Hopefully he likes it 😉 We are celebrating his birthday tomorrow (which is his actual birthday) with cake and presents in the afternoon! I know I keep saying it, but I can’t believe he is already going to be 4 years old tomorrow! dc-comics-super-friends-robo-batcave-playset--38B64981.zoom.jpg

After our toy adventure, we went to Wachusett Reservoir again since it was another beautiful day outside. I think I could have stayed there all day…it was just so relaxing.

(Oh, and I don’t have the same shirt on as the other day..just the same color 😉 )

I totally think we need a sound machine at our house..especially one with the waves crashing sound. Not to sleep, since we sleep with a loud fan and can’t sleep without it, but just to relax at home. There’s something about the sound of the ocean/lake/waves crashing that is so calming. Do you think so too? 

We watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 before bed, and I definitely loved it! Honestly, I don’t really remember the first one (of course, since I am so forgetful..which Michael thinks is hilarious at times) Baby Groot is just SO CUTE! I want him!!! I think I am totally going to start just saying “I am Groot” at times I don’t have anything to say otherwise…think that will work?! (Maybe it will get me out of a few arguments or disagreements or something, lol!)

This morning started with a 40 minute incline walk/run. I totally was going to just stay in bed a little longer and call it a “rest day”, but since I am not one that typically likes the idea a rest day…I got my butt moving!

I am still absolutely devastated at seeing the footage of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. It’s like a bad movie that I can’t stop watching, but I want to cover my eyes. I am praying hard for everyone that is impacted by this horrendous event. ♥

I hope you all have a great day. Don’t forget to sparkle 😉 Xoxo
