Well, folks, JUMP is over! It was SO MUCH fun, but I have to say I am happy to sleep in and not wear a t-shirt that is too big for me any more. ;) This was one of my favorite JUMP outfits. (The other was featured on Instagram.) And though I would love to write more about the week, or these shorts, or anything, my brain has officially shut down for the time being (it’s 9:30 at night) and that is why I have barely posted this week. Sorry for the silence. And I’m sorry I’m not sorry. But I do love you readers. Thanks for sticking around.

Since quitting my job a few years back, I have a whole new perspective of Mondays. I used to, like everyone else working a 9-5 job, hate them. Now, I honestly look forward to them. I love the weekends, but when time starts to blend together, you begin to look forward to the days when you can feel like you accomplish something—even if that something is just cleaning the toilets (or worse, the floors!). And  though the task of actually doing it is dreaded, the result makes you feel so good about your life that it motivates more doing of things you don’t want to do.

This week, I have a laundry list of things I don’t want to do (we’re having a going away party for my in-laws, who are rudely moving to Florida), but at the end of that list, is satisfaction. And that is making me excited for Monday.

So sorry for the pause over here. We have been replacing our kitchen floor with tile and I’ve been in construction mode for a while. Except for the brief pause on Tuesday night when we took family photos! So fun! Hopefully I’ll be able to share them soon.

Anyway, I had to actually get dressed and I came across this photo on Instagram and knew I wanted to copy it immediately. So it was the perfect thing for a doc appointment and dinner outside. The weather is amazing right now. The kind where you can be in shorts or jeans and still be comfortable. You know?
