What I'm reminiscing about...
I was graduated from law school in 2007 and called to the bar in 2008.  The articling student at my firm just finished up and our summer students just started; it is fun to think back to those first days of working at an actual law firm.

What I'm loving...
We put a bunch of herbs in this year, particularly lots of mint for mojitos.  We need to stock up on the rum and then it's game on!

What we've been up to...
Recovering from multiple forms of illness - we had stomach bugs, laryngitis, undiagnosed cases of hand, foot, and mouth disease, and just some general ickiness.  We were very healthy all winter so I guess we were due for something.

What I'm dreading...
I can't think of too much right now, which is great!

What I'm working on...
Like last month, I am back to checking our restaurants for Chicago.  I just booked a reservation at a french place before we go to see Hamilton. 

What I'm excited about...
Spending some time in our backyard this summer.  We were lucky to get it done in the fall which meant it was all ready for us when the weather got nice this year.  The tree house has been redone, we have a lawn, and lots of nice places to sit.  We are excited to enjoy it and welcome lots of friends.

What I'm watching/reading...
We are watching The Handmaid's Tale, Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, and I guess I'll try watching this season of The Bachelorette.  I'm not overly excited about Becca, but we'll see if it keeps my interest. 

My book on hold at the library is "in Transit" so I should be getting it soon and I'll start it.

What I'm listening to...
We had free access to XM Radio the past two weeks so I was listening to a lot of 90s on 9 and Pop 2K.  Love it. 

What I'm wearing...
These shorts from the Gap.  I got two pairs last year in navy and khaki green, and this year I picked up a pink pair.  I love the length, as I am not a teenage girl and prefer my shorts a little longer.

What I'm doing this weekend...
T-ball, water fights, BBQ with friends

What I'm looking forward to next month...
My birthday, my trip to Chicago, my mom's visit, the last day of school, golf, and camping.

What else is new...
I got a new phone last week.  I got the iPhone 8, which seems almost identical to the 6S but with a few differences.  I am now in the market for a case.  I never got a case before because I loved the rose gold and didn't want to cover it up.  Now I have a gold phone and I don't care about the colour as much, and considering this one is made of glass and I drop my phone at least once a week, I need to get a case this time!

What is your favourite summer salad?
I linked to these 3 salads in 2015 but they are all still very good.  I particularly love the pasta one. 

Linking up with ShaySheaffer, and Mel.


  1. I feel like everyone I know (including me) has gotten sick this past month. What's up with that?!?!?

    I love the idea of growing my own mint for mojitos. YUM!!!

    And I would love to see Hamilton. I hope you have the best time.

  2. Yay for lots of outdoor time! But boo to all fhe sickness. Lots of fun happening in june!
