Weekend Update - Lessons Learned

First weekend of summer is officially over. I spent most of mine laying out in the sun at my neighbor's pool, reading a new book and getting attacked my mosquitos. I had forgotten since last summer how much they love my sweetness. As a rude reminder, I now have 2304973487 bites. I look like I'm 12 years old.
 
Lessons Learned This Weekend - besides buy bug spray -
 
1. Family + Mexican = amazing Friday night. I am obsessed with Mexican food and margaritas right now. Nothing is better for unwinding on a Friday night with my cutie little cousin.

2. Love conquers all. My dating life is strange right now, inconsistent is probably the best word. But I am content. I have enough love in my life to get me through. "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13
3. Lazy Sundays are the best. Especially with my favorite fur baby.


4. Time to get serious about training for this half marathon. 5AM gym sessions began again today. I feel better about myself when I'm working out period.
Am I the only girl you know who can throw together a post including a bible verse AND the F-word? Yeah probably...sorry about that....
 
Happy Monday!

I think mosquitos bites have something to do with you blood type oddly enough. All I know is that I'm in the sweetness boat that you are in! It sucks!!
