Five Things On My Mind (Dallas Edition)

Here are five things sitting on my mind
now that I'm residing in the Lone Star State 
for the glorious month of August.

Baby in "heat" in England: laughing. Baby in "heat" in Texas: passed out.

 I almost forgot what hot was. 

When you've just gone through a "heat wave" in England 
where temperatures are sitting in the high 80's for weeks on end,
you aren't suffering.

You're spoiled.

Thank goodness for the invention of the pool 
& drinks that are available in quantities over 50 ounces...
and for under $1.

I really shouldn't have eaten so much dessert
after every single meal 
every single day
this spring & summer.

Now that I'm in a swimsuit or short dresses,
I slightly regret it.

(But let's be honest, I'll be hidden from the glare of chubby white skin in a matter of weeks. YOLO.)

 I love king sized beds.

I mean, I can wax poetic 
on how snuggly we are 
in our cozy double...

But there is something 
that can only be described as wonderful
when you can spread out like a starfish
in your bed...
and still have your man in there with you.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch 

England, you need it.
Trust me.

I've been starting out every day with a big ole bowl of the stuff...
and I'm the better for it.

The Queen would be, too,
I can just feel it.

If not for me,
do it for the happiness of Prince George's childhood.

I'm in the last few days of 28.

My birthday is Sunday.

28 was too much of a bit of a roller coaster for me.

I'd like to recover from the emotional whiplash 
I experienced during the last year
with a period of just regular days & goodness.

So upcoming year,
please be kind, boring 
& slightly heavy on the trips to Italy.

As much as it stinks to get older....
I feel like 29 
is going to be awesome.

Let's do this.


What's one thing on your mind today?
