I feel like I'm becoming a shitty blogger again. Partly because it's summer & I'm feeling lazy. Partly because I have so much to do that I'm not doing any of it. And then partly because I feel like I can't take my eyes of Nash for more than a couple of minutes. In fact this post almost didn't happen. It's 10 am, Nash is finally napping, we've been up for 3 hours & I have yet to have my breakfast or my coffee...
Linking up with Amanda.
What I Was Up To
Monday was the second day in a row I sat on my carpet & briefly cried. I was feeling held hostage by my adorable little Nash. I was feeling guilty for having left Nash with other people for a week after having him for just 36 hours so I basically wasn't leaving the house so I could spend time with Nash. I left the house just once to briefly get groceries & another time to attempt to donate blood. My iron was 0.1 too low. So because I was out already & Laura had posted a picture on Instagram that left me craving McDonald's sweet tea so I made a McDonald's stop.
Tuesday Helen & Caleb took pity on me & invited Nash & I over for the 4th.
In true American fashion we had Cuban sandwiches for supper. Except Helen put an American twist on it & named it the Miami.
I brought red, white, & blue cupcakes but it was so hot out that the frosting melted off the tops. Turns out sometimes these colors do run. Then Steve came over & made French Toast for dessert. I'm not sure if it's the most American 4th of July I've ever had or the least American. Nash & I got back home just in time to see the fireworks at the park right behind my apartment.
Wednesday we were lazy. Apparently terrorizing Helen & Caleb's cat and dog took a lot out of little Nash. We went for a couple of walks but mostly Nash slept. I got an Influenster Voxbox & my latest StitchFix in the mail so it was a pretty great mail day. I'll do a review of them later on!
Thursday I was supposed to have a date but I cancelled it. The guy & I had started talking while I was in Minnesota. Except that we didn't really talk. He's the one who suggested we go on a date but we would only talk if I started it & even then it was not a whole lot. In 2 weeks I learned that he was originally from Iowa & had briefly lived in Minnesota. In the 5 days leading up to our supposed to be date we had talked 3 times. Once to decide a day, once to decide a place, & another to decide a time. We didn't talk at all the day of the date other than when I cancelled it a few hours before. Instead I met up with my friend who is in town from Colorado for work for supper. I brought Nash along & he got to experience his very first dog friendly restaurant, Lazy Dog. Of course everybody loved him. I normally put Nash to bed around 9 & then go to bed an hour later but I was so tired we both went to bed at 9.
On The Blog
On Monday I did a big recap of my weekend & my week in Minnesota.
I skipped Tuesday because Independence Day. I was going to do a little post for it but decided to just skip it instead.
On Thursday I shared how I've been doing so far on my summer goals.
