So long, sweet summer

Happy day-after-Labor-Day!

Hope you had as fantastic of a weekend as I did, and sent summer 2013 off with a bang.

C was on a bachelor party trip to New Orleans this weekend, so I was on my own. On Friday afternoon, I headed down to the lake house to spend some QT with the fam, disconnected from the world.

It involved boat rides, beers, and smoked ribs courtesy of my sister and brother-in-law. And birthday cake. Completely winning combination, if you ask me.

Everything is still so green! Thanks to all the rain we've been getting this summer
Decked out our dock :)

I came home slightly sunburned and very exhausted, but also completely relaxed. Even though it stormed every afternoon, we still got to enjoy lots of time out on the boat, and lots of fun and laughs. Just wanted I needed! When I got home last night, C and I wrapped up the weekend with a quick trip to the grocery store & dinner from Chipotle, then several episodes of the Big Bang Theory. Couldn't have asked for a better evening!

Let's be real though - I, like every other girl / blogger / person on facebook, can't stop thinking about how much I'm ready for fall. I want it right now! I'm longing for pumpkins and football Sundays and tights. However, given that I was already sweating at 6:30 this morning, it seems like I won't be getting my wish for awhile. Summer is holding on for dear life, at least for a bit longer, whether we said goodbye this weekend or not...
