Summer Confessions

 Heat wave? What heat wave?

Sure it's nice and toasty for July here in the Mid-Atlantic, but I can't seem to stay out of the sun this summer. I feel like a child. It's like I have a Vitamin-D deficiancy.  I spend lunch breaks in the courtyard.  I spend weekends in the pool. I tan as if I am prepping for prom.

Preppy Confession:

Y'all were right - I do love my Boat + Tote.

Paperback Confession:

I can't stop reading Nora Roberts. On a post-pool Saturday I found myself, Nora in hand, dressed like Mindy from Friday Night Lights. Stay classy, me.

Nora's stories, so gripping, I have to put ice in my wine!

It started, by default, last year on vacation when I'd read all the {very serious, highly acclaimed} books I'd packed and had to buy from a small island grocery store one of Nora's stories from the Bride Quartet series. LOVE. Now I've moved on to other titles. But it should not go without mention that when I went to request the final books from the BQ series from the Library of Congress, one was already borrowed. I'm not alone in this indulgence. 

Maryland Confession:

I love going to the fish market.

Dan loves the crabbies.

I love the excuse it provides to pull out my finest table linens (see above) which go so well with my channeling of Mindy Collette Riggins.

 TV Confession:

Friday will mark the end of Friday Night Lights. I already know how it ends because I couldn't wait to just watch in real time. I bought the final season on DVD months ago. I've watched the finale three times. I loved it. I cannot wait for the people who love and appreciate this show as much as I do to see it so we can talk about it.

And then I'll stop dressing like Mindy.

There are soooo many things in this post that I love, I can't put it all in words.

1. That seafood looks divine!
2. You rock the Mindy look so well and make it look classy.
3. I have recently become obsessed with FNL. I started watching about three weeks ago and already halfway through the 3rd season. I can't get enough of it. I wish there were more shows like it that use "sir" and "ma'am." I strive to be Tammy Taylor.

I did not watch Friday Night Lights but hear it was awesome and how sad everyone is that it's going away :(

I guess I need to get with the FNL program and watch. Sometimes I like to wait until a show has ended so I can watch all the eps at my own pace. Love you with your icy wine! xoxo

I like your tote in yellow.

Great post as always.
