motivated by a burrito.

I hope you all had the best weekend.

my mom called me on friday morning, and asked if she could come visit for the weekend. the perks of living close. [two hours from my hometown]. I said heck yeah. plus [J] was out of town for work, so it was nice to have the company.

we got wild on friday night. I’m talking dinner + a cocktail, or 7. which resulted in a late bedtime. but we were determined to get up super early for the des moines {farmers market}. it’s from 7AM to noon, but we wanted to beat the crowds [and the heat]. so we had to arrive early.

the plan was 7:30AM. the reality 8AM.

let’s just say there was a breakfast burrito I “desperately” wanted. and the last time we went, the line wrapped around the block. “it’s all part of the experience“. when it comes to food & me, especially in the morning ..there’s no messing around in a 30 minute line. so I had a lot of motivation to get there early this time around.

rest assured I got my breakfast burrito.

[which I guess means: I can be bribed out of bed by a breakfast burrito, no matter how early. even slightly hungover & sleep deprived. only slightly ashamed].

summer bucket list.

believe it or not the first day of summer is this friday.

and I will admit, I’ve participated in very few “summery” activities thus far. [unless you count the numerous times [J] & I have used our grill. but besides that ..zero]. I’m always so happy once this warm season arrives, but it usually ends before I do all I had planned. so this year I put my foot down. and created a bucket list, to ensure I accomplish everything before autumn rolls around. [on september 22nd].

the week in photos.

I am so happy friday is upon us.

I thought I was happy because [J] was finally in town on the weekend & rain wasn’t in the forecast ..we could finally go to the farmer’s market together. but alas, that is no longer true. as much as I’m looking forward to that day ..we’ll have to wait. better things have revealed themselves.

megan of {the thread affect} [whom I’ve never met in real life] & I ARE MEETING TODAY! and traveling to chicago together. [more to be revealed on the “why” tomorrow].

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
