Happy Hump Day Y’all! How has your week been so far? Mine has gone by both slowly and quickly…have you ever had weeks like that? It’s really weird.

It’s a short week for my office (hallelujah) so I am antsy to get everything done and skip my way out the door tomorrow afternoon. We don’t have any really big plans, but my best friend’s family is hosting a BBQ, so there will be some eats, drinks, and fireworks. The bummer about it all though is that with my new tattoo (!!!) I can’t expose it to ANY sunlight, can’t take a dip in the pool, or even use the hot tub. I didn’t even realize 4th of July was already here…it totally snuck on me this year. In fact…how the hell is half the year already over?


I’ve been getting up really early (5AM…ugh) to go running because it’s too hot in the evenings. It’s not the most fun, but it’s been really nice having my evenings free and I don’t have to worry about it. Training for this half marathon has been so difficult. I’m just ready for October to get here so I can get it over with and run for “fun” again. At least the race holds me accountable, so there’s that.

Today I was in a rush to get dressed after running 4 miles and taking the fastest shower ever, so I threw on some trusty stripes and my favorite Jcrew shorts.


What are you holiday weekend plans? Going hiking? Cooking up some burgers?

  1. Cute outfit! I’m loving your striped top. And I definitely agree that the year is going by so quickly! Can’t believe it’s July already! Hope you’re having a lovely 4th of July weekend!

  2. Stripes, stripes, glorious stripes! haha 🙂 Seriously though, I absolutely adore striped clothing and so needless to say, I adore this top on you! I hope you have/had fun at the BBQ.

  3. I don’t blame you for getting up early to run. I know it sucks, but w hen the sun comes up, it’s so darn hot. And who wants to be uncomfortable while running. I know I don’t. I really don’t have huge plans for the weekend except for a BBQ. I hope you enjoy your weekend.
