because I needed a break from sorting the mail | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

because I needed a break from sorting the mail

This picture is from last 4th of July. before we were married. We watched fireworks on his roof :)


Yes I sort mail at work. I'm the receptionist and I sort the endless amounts of mail that get delivered into the office. Bless the man who invented mail opener things because without him I would probably have sore fingers and a few paper cuts to show off. Because of the holiday weekend, about 2 tons of mail got delivered this afternoon. Anyways, you're probably like "k enough about mail, get on with pretty much anything else."

This weekend was just perfect. Minus the whole having a cold in the summer ordeal. Friday I got to play housewife and get a million things done AND still have time to watch way too many episodes of Pretty Little Liars all before Jason came home haha.

Saturday my cold finally cleared up but sadly, it transferred to Jason. We spent the day eating. a lot. And Jason watched a big soccer game at his parents house while I tried to enjoy it for as long as my ADD would let me before I got up and sat myself down in the pool area to get some sun. After the game was finally over, Jason came swimming with me and we busted out some goggles and swam! ps basically everyday this week I've asked Jason to swim with me and so when we finally got to swim I was in heaven. I love swimming so so so much. His parents invited us to Texas Roadhouse with them and obviously we couldn't say no to that! I am obsessed with their salads! I know, I know, it's a steakhouse and i love the salads. they're just so dang yummy!

After dinner we met up with some friends and did more swimming! (YAY) I took 0 pictures this entire weekend so that is why words are filling the screen instead of bright new photos! We didn't really try to catch a fireworks show because you could see random ones litter the sky now and then throughout the evening. Plus I didn't really know of any close shows to go to anyways. We had sparklers in our car from the photo shoot last week so we busted those out and had a mini fireworks show. well, sparkler show. It was a really fun night and fun meeting a couple new couples bc we <3 married friends!

ps I'm not bald, just a severe case of bad lighting

There may or may not be a giveaway on Wednesday so stay tuned! off to finish the mail. only 1 ton to go!

  5. It's like one of my dream jobs to be a receptionist! I would love to sort mail! Seriously!! Your 4th sounds more fun than mine. I really should swim more on my own time, but I have to with the kids I watch so much that I never want to when I'm home. You're lucky you have married friends...I don't think we have any now that I think about it haha. Thats probably why I keep veering towards married blogger friends ;) Also I did try that braid thing..and I just could not pull it apart the way you did! I'll keep practicing lol. And SWEEET a giveaway. You know I'll be here ;)

  11. Ugh to sorting mail, and isn't it wonderful how when you're married you share EVERYTHING, including colds. ;) Sounds like you still had a fun weekend anyway, I know swimming and eating are two of my favorite things, personally.

  13. Oh wow. You are crazy pretty. I just had to say that. And I adore the photo of you two. Super cute.

    Sorting the mail sounds very .... not fun. I can see why you'd need a break from it ;) Glad you're no longer sick and that you got some swimming in. I'm jealous. It's July and I still haven't gone swimming yet. This needs to change asap. Hope your other half feels better soon!
