Monthly Photo Journal: March - June 2014

Wow. It's July. Already. So cray.

In June, I really slacked in posting. Sorry, but not sorry. I blame the World Cup for distracting me on the weekends.

I've also slacked on my Monthly Photo Journals for the past 4 months. Woops. So here I am, catching up.

Here's what happened in March, April, May & June in a few snapshots:

We ate some pretty good hotdogs & onion rings from The Dog of Nashville. // We tried out a Honduras Restaurant. We weren't too impressed with the food though, unfortunately. // Weather was warming up in March, so a couple of my co-workers & I went to Jenni's to eat some ice cream for lunch! // J and I had a little Sundate breakfast and walked to downtown to grab some breakfast at Dunn Bro's Coffee. They have really good sandwiches, muffins & coffee there!

Our niece came to visit us for a week. We did a lot and had a ton of fun! We took her on a hike around Radnor Lake. And we ate A LOT! Places we went to included: brunch at Mad Donna's (The Captain's French Toast & a pomegranate mimosa pictured -- both really yummy!) // tacos from Taco Mamacita (the Loaded Gyro & Korean BBQ tacos pictured above, with their Mexican street corn-- I highly recommend the Korean BBQ taco & the street corn!) // delicious burgers & sweet potato fries from Gabby's Burgers (their milkshakes are BOMB, too!)
Enjoying a nice Spring afternoon at Dragon Park. // Making a pitstop during a bike ride around town for a bushwhacker from 3 Crow Bar . // On my quest to find some good fish tacos in Nashville, I found some at Oscar's Taco Shop!

Enjoying some free, live music (gotta love Nashville!) during Musician's Corner at Centennial Park. // Ice cream stop at Maggie Moo's -- yummy ice cream!! // Stopping by the park for a snow cone during a bike ride.
Of course, the highlight of our May-- actually of our 2014 so far -- is going to Aruba! What a paradise. // We took a lot of fun sunset pictures on the beach there (more to come!) // While in Aruba, I also had some of the best shrimp I ever had in. my. life. !!(more on that later)

One of J's friend came to visit and we ate at a place called Marché Artisan Foods. Pretty good food, but a little too boujee (fancy) for my taste. Pictured here is the Brasstown Beef Hamburger -- but their menu changes seasonally. // We hit up the farmer's market, something we hadn't done in a while, and grabbed some coffee first. // One of my kid's parent gave me a bag of peaches straight from Georgia. And they were so good! I am now a believer that Georgia peaches are the best peaches! // Warmer weather means more cookouts with friends. Yay!

Well, I hope to be better at this blogging thing and do it more often now that the World Cup is almost over! I hope everyone State-side enjoys their 4th of July weekend!

Aruba (part 1)

In May, J and I traveled to Aruba for his sister's wedding. It was a week of paradise and good times. And like with any vacation, it was extremely hard to come home.

In a later post, I will talk about some things we did on the island, but for now, enjoy a few photos:

Aruba part 2 will be up soon, so stay tuned!

The Sunday Currently, volume 9

Hello! Yes, I am still alive over here. I have just been, you know, living life. And recently, that has involved putting this little 'ol blog on the back burner. Plus, with the World Cup, I am even MORE distracted! But, I hope to find the motivation to start back on blogging more often again. I do still owe you guys an Aruba post!

In the meantime, here's a quickie:

C U R R E N T L Y . . .

R E A D I N G  blogs... catching up on my Bloglovin' feed!

W R I T I N G  down names-- more specifically dog names. While watching the World Cup, I've come across some 'cool' names and I think "hey, that'd be a good name for a dog!" because my dream is to have a dog (or 2, or 3 ....). Who know when it's going to happen, but when it does, I'll have my list of names ready!

L I S T E N I N G  to Stromae "Papaoutai"

T H I N K I N G   about how hot it is... I kinda forgot how hot and sticky Nashville summers are.

S M E L L I N G  no specific scent at the moment

W I S H I N G    I was back on the beach ... in Aruba ....

H O P I N G  J and I find some goodies at the Farmer's Market today!

W E A R I N G  my bathing suit, shorts and tank top.

L O V I N G   that we have friends that have a pool! Can't wait to be in it later!

W A N T I N G   Costa Rica to win the World Cup! My Spain is already out of the tournament, but my other faves are still in! And in case you were wondering, "my teams" include Spain, Costa Rica, and Argentina. And no, I am not cheering for the US team... for several reasons. But I won't get into that. Let's keep this post happy and positive =)

N E E D I N G  my tan I got from Aruba to stay forever and ever.

F E E L I N G  hot, but happy!

C L I C K I N G on "Proof that Messi is the most perfect human being on Earth" -- he's my favorite player! Oh, and also, for the ladies: "The 30 hottest bearded men of the World Cup" -- a pretty good list. I do love me some facial hair!

I hope everyone is having a great start to their summer! Hopefully I won't be a stranger.
