Blogger Currently Unavailable.

The whole "blogger currently unavailable" thing really messed up my blogging.
The one time I actually had time to sit down, return to my blogging, and catch up on my blog reading... blogger is unavailable. Figures.

And sadly, I haven't had too much excitement going on my life lately.. 
this weekend we enjoyed some time at the lake, but the majority of it was spent cleaning up the "Jungle" that seemed to have grown since our last visit! We took a trip to Lowe's to pick up supplies for our yardwork, and Millie came along to enjoy the "adventure" too.

 We also put the boat in for the first time this season to make sure it would crank! and luckily it did!!! Millie loves riding on the front of the boat, so if she didn't have enough fun in Lowe's.. she definitely got her fill riding in the boat. 

Because before we knew it, she was passed out!

Mallory even went skiing.. crazy girl. It's not quite warm enough for me to get in just yet!


The majority of our time NOT spent in the yard, we sat on the dock reading and soaking up some sun.

I finished The Island by Elin Hilderbrand this weekend.. all of her books are so great! I love books that take place around Nantucket, they're such great summer reads!

I've turned into a speed reader.. I'm already starting on my fourth book of summer and I've only been out for 2 weeks! If you have any great reads let me know! (I've already read the Emily Giffin books, Water for Elephants and the Help) So any suggestions are welcome!

And finally... today I'm going Apartment hunting with my parents for fall, so please wish us luck!

Hope y'all had great weekends!
