Ready? It’s tantrum time because in less than three weeks I’m back to the grind in the classroom. Really, the structure is exactly what I crave this time of the year, but August has a bittersweetness to it. It just seems to go by so quickly no matter how much I try and savor the moments. I guess that’s life, huh?
The week began with this handsome boy farting in our car on the way to the vet, haha. Seriously though, he’s coming along so much in terms of socialization and growth. He can sit, lay down, stand up, heel, stay, and wait. We’re refining his “polite leash walking” and working on that each day. I’ve been taking advantage of my summer off to leash train. It’s not always pretty, but it’s always getting better. AKC Canine Good Citizen here we come!
We realized that it was AUGUST and we hadn’t just relaxed outside in our own backyard! Seriously. So, one evening Keith and I took the time to sit outside with the pup and savor the moment. We really worked on sprucing up our outdoor space this summer and the lights and signs do it for us.
I’ve been loving my summer beauty products I’ve been collecting and sampling. The Little Alchemist Cacao and Banana Face Glow mask is top notch! It’s cruelty free, organic, and smells like dessert! My face really felt awesome afterwards and my blackhead areas (nose creases, ugh!), felt clean and smooth. I received this sample in a Petit Vour box and it’s been one of my faves! The Lush haul was picked up when we went to see Pepper, Rebelution, and Sublime with Rome. All in all a good night of music, skincare, and palazzo pants worn by yours truly.
Selfie Saturday to end the week? Sure, why not! I was waiting for my Momma to pick me up so we could spend the day together and do fun girly things. I went red this summer and I’m getting it freshened up just in time for school to start in a few weeks. I don’t know WHY I didn’t go lighter sooner. Being a redhead is pretty darn awesome! Happy Sunday, loves and lads!
