Hey Peeps! How are you all today? I’ve been thinking of you! I’m currently on a two day hiatus trip home to give my mom and pop their Mother’s Day and Father’s Day presents early. I’ve got a crazy summer schedule starting up, so I’m glad I got to hang out with the family for a day. Spent the three hour drive home jammin to old school Tori Amos cds, which was fun and don’t worry, I know you’re jealous.
Today, I slept in until 8 am! Then I stayed in bed and read until 10! When I went downstairs I was loudly greeted by my 3 year old niece dressed all in pink princess wardrobe. I managed to squeeze in a mini work out by chasing her around and doing what I consider to be weighted leg curls because we played “Super Sonja” for quite some time until my legs gave out. We totally earned that snack break of juice and chex mix.
Many of you are up to more studious things, or things that made me laugh, so I’m happy to share them all with you! Please feel free to chat, and know I’ll be with you momentarily after I drive the 3 hours back home.
