Just a few things....

Long time no blog! What happened? Life, my friends.  I've been enjoying my summer and in doing so the blog has been on the back burner...obviously!

I have no real direction for this post. I just have a few little rant type things that I want to get off of my chest. I don't intend to offend anyone with what I'm about to say. I'm just in a mood, if you know what I mean.

The olympics--Is is just me or are the olympics a little lame so far? Opening ceremonies- Zzzz long and boring. Women's gymnastics-- My favorite sport to watch. Aside from the fact that I heard who won the team gold well before it aired (grrrrr NBC), it was just not as enjoyable to watch as years past. The routines had lots of power and difficult elements but lacked, in my opinion, the artistic elements of gymnasts in the past. Live streaming vs. Primetime TV-- I understand why NBC waits to air popular events at primetime but it's frustrating to hear about the winners of the competitions before they even air on tv. I know I could just watch online, but call me crazy, I'd rather view the olypics on my 42'' HDTV, not my 15" laptop. Just a personal preference I guess....Hopefully the week gets better! Other events I like to watch are beach volleyball and diving.

Chick-fill-A--I don't wish to rehash the controversy surrounding Chick-fill-A on my blog. I will say, however, that I ate there today and it was yummy :) I will also say that no matter how you feel about homosexuality and marriage we should all support free speech
My Chick-fil-A on Chick-fil-A apprciation day! 
A few more things....
We are currently having the siding and roof redone on our house. I am soooo ready for all of the banging and pounding to be done! 

I am so tired of losing my phone everyday. B hides it from me or I set it down and forget where I put it. Last night it was in the pantry....I have no idea how or why! 

It's already August! Call me crazy, but I'm ready for autumn and some cooler weather. 

I've barely made a dent in my Summer Reading List but I have crossed off a couple of things on my 30 before 30 list

My mom told me about a job posting at a Macy's near me in their beauty department. I'm thinking about applying! I think that would be a fun job! I'm afraid, though, that my paychecks would go right back to the  makeup counter! 

I like watching cooking shows but why oh why do we need close up shots of their big mouths eating the food?! (I'm watching Nigella Feasts as I write this!) 
Whew! I'm glad I got that off my chest! I'm hoping to get on a regular blogging schedule soon. I do want to put out more posts, but I just don't always feel like doing it! 

I hope you're having a fun summer and I hope I didn't offend you with my rantings. What's been bugging you lately? Feel free to leave a ranty comment!

I'm totally with you on the Olympics. I've had so much less interest in them this year and I think it's because we hear who won before it even airs. Talk about a spoiler.
