What I’m Into Lately: July 15, 2013

at the beach

We finally made it to a beach this weekend. We’ve been meaning to get to one for a few weeks now but yesterday the weather was gorgeous and our calendar was wide open. We went to a State Park that we had heard good things about but had yet to check out – and we were very pleased with it. Plenty of shady picnic tables and a nice sandy beach. A playground and good bathroom / shower areas. We’ll definitely be going there again.

What I’m reading:

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain for my book club this month. For those unfamiliar with the title, it’s all about Ernest Hemingway’s relationship with his wife, Hadley. I’m a little over halfway through now and still enjoying it but enjoying Ernest a bit less! I think that probably goes without saying.

Movies worth watching:

Dan and I rented Admission this weekend because we’re on a Tina Fey kick – we’ve been watching 30 Rock on Netflix and loving it. I’m so glad we decided to check out a couple of episodes because it’s a fantastic show! We both really liked Admission also – it’s funny but also heart felt and the cast was amazing. If you like Tina Fey and / or Paul Rudd, you are in for a treat!

This week:

Should be a little more relaxed (knock on wood) since neither kid has summer camp but we’ll be keeping relatively busy going berry picking on Wednesday, getting ready for BB’s birthday party this weekend and hopefully a trip to the library soon. My kids have been doing a summer reading challenge with the library but they are actually almost finished with the reading goal – clearly we read a lot! I’m thinking I’ll keep track of all the books they read this summer just for fun.

Items of Note:

My little girl is turning 4 on Sunday! I’ve been planning her party for so long now and thinking of it as relatively off in the future but now that it’s less than a week away I feel like I’m scrambling a little bit to pull it all together!

What I’m Looking Forward to:

BB’s birthday, the company picnic and upcoming family vacations and camping trips!

what are you into these days? Let me know in the comments below!

    It looks and sounds like you guys had a great beach day. Quality bathrooms & showers make such a difference in those excursions, don’t they?! Best wishes for a lovely 4th birthday for BB & a relaxing party planning week for you.
