Happy Friday! My kids were at camp this week and I thought I was going to have so much time to work on Sunshine and Books. I thought I could get a month’s worth of Tuesday Book Release Day posts written, a few new recipes, and maybe an additional post or two. Boy, was I wrong! I’m not sure how time moved so fast, but it did! I got a bunch of school work, errands, and little things around the house done, but very little blogging. In fact, I didn’t even get a post together for two days this week. I do have some favorites to share with you though and I’m linking up with Erika and Andrea to do it.
Favorite 1: GOLF!! The boys were at golf camp this week and they loved every minute of it! The golf course near us does so many wonderful things for kids and we are so thankful to have found them. The camp is all day and includes lunch (woohoo!!). On Thursday, Jack stayed for junior league so he put in a 10 hour day at the course, making it his dream day!
Jack won the up and down competition on Thursday so he got to pick a new hat from the pro shop. He was so proud!
Favorite 2: QUARTER ZIPS!! I love quarter zip tops. I feel like they elevate regular running shorts or skorts. The weather has been so much cooler in the mornings and evenings this week, so I’ve been able to wear a few new ones.
Favorite 3: WALKS!! This cooler weather made for lovely morning walks. I signed up for the Catalina Wine Mixer run a few weeks ago but never got around to running it. The bib, medal, and tank top have been sitting on my dresser for weeks and I decided that this week was time to do it. I can’t run right now because of my surfing injury, so I walked the 5k. It made me want to watch Stepbrothers again too.
Favorite 4: VIEW!!! While this isn’t a true beach view, this was a pretty great view for my “office” this week. If you check out both of my screens, you’ll definitely see beaches. You all know I love being outside in the summer so this view just makes me smile!
Favorite 5: SUNSHINE!! The sun was setting as we left Luke’s soccer practice and the sky is just so pretty! I love it!
Favorite 6: SHELLS!! Every single year we bring home a big bucket of shells from the beach. And every single January I throw them away when I’m cleaning out the garage. This year I proclaimed that we are not bringing any shells home. We were leaving them all on the beach! I stuck to it until we got to the Outer Banks. Luke loved collecting oyster shells and he worked hard all week to find good ones. I told him that he could bring them home this year if we did something with them. We decided to put them in a lamp for his room. He loves it!!
We are looking forward to a fun weekend with soccer, baseball, and some pool time. I’m hoping to finish a book and catch up with one of my college roommates. Have a great weekend full fo sunshine and books!
