Pathetic Excuses and Thinking Out Loud.

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Have you ever had one of those weeks where life is just insanely busy?

I've had one of those months. Ever since November started, I haven't stopped going (except when I went to the beach!). So, without further ado, here are my 5 pathetic excuses as to why I haven't been blogging lately.

1. I'm pretending it's Summer.

My family somehow found a little time one Friday afternoon to sneak over to the beach.

Going to the beach in the Fall is almost as fun as going in the Summer. 

We ended up walking a couple miles down the beach in really nice 70F weather. I swear that the beach is better than any therapy out there.

2. I had my first (and second!) swim meet since November started!

Get ready for a mouthful. At out city meet I swam:

50 m backstroke in a relay
50 m freestyle individual 
50 m freestyle in a relay
100 m backstroke individual
200 m freestyle individual
100 m freestyle relay

Guess what place I got x 3?

(If you're still unsure, I got 1st!)

3. Walmart started carrying pomegranates. 

Stop reading my blog and go eat one of these. Do itttt!

4. Cotillion. 

Seriously, it's the 21st century. Getting formally presented into society shouldn't be so time consuming.

On another note though, I like all of the pretty dresses I get to wear to these luncheons. There's a silver lining in every time consuming cloud I suppose.

5. I was finding paradise.

An afternoon walk allowed me to find a tiny slice of paradise last week. I could just dive in and stay in that moment forever. 

What have you been up to?
Have I missed anything really exciting?

  3. Congratulations on 1st place. Aren't you a superstar :) btw, for some reason or another not all your photos are showing up. I tried re-loading a couple times & still nothing :(

  4. Ha, there's simply no pretending it's summer over here considering IT SNOWED ALL YESTERDAY. WHY. Envious of your beach time!

  5. Daaang girl you are BUSY! If only I could still go to the beach...

    A lot of the pictures didn't load :( I want to see the cotillion pic!

    I didn't realize you were such a great swimmer! You go girl!!

  6. Congratulations on first place! That's amazing. What's your favorite stroke so far? In swimming class backstroke was always my favorite because I felt so powerful and could go so fast. Then I got some ear infections and I'm super sensitive to water in my ears... Speaking of which, I hope you don't get swimmer's ear! So painful :(

    Anywho, congrats again!
