This past week has been SO hectic! Went to my girl’s final dress fitting on wednesday, followed by some must-needed retail therapy (purchases post to follow- found some TO DIE FOR cold weather necessities!!! Now I just need Fall to hurry up already!) Thursday was spent at my parent’s house, visiting downtown Lodi for an amazing art show called “September in Paris” (doesn’t that sound lovely?! It was perfect!) and delish bbq dinner. Today I decided to stay up here whilst my beloved had to go back home for work, boo! The weather was extremely hot all day, warranting a kayak sesh on the lake this morning and some outdoor shower/ tanning all day long (yes, you heard right! Next best thing if you don’t have a pool!) and then around 4:30, it decided to start THUNDERING and raining and hailing!! Loved it! Tomorrow is my great aunt’s 80th birthday party, and then the rehearsal dinner, and sunday is my bff’s big day! Meep! Exciting times!! I’m absolutely loving life!
