Little Things Lately ...

Missing// My Nana (she's the one right in the front there, crouched down in plaid). June 30th marked an unfathomable ten years since she passed. I can't even believe I haven't seen her in that long. What I would give to have conversations with her now that I'm a functioning adult. I think of her often and send love to her wherever she is. Le sigh! That's a post for another day.

Watching// "Back to the Future III" as I write this and reminded of my little brother. Growing up, this was his movie. He'd come down the stairs in his little cowboy costume and hunker down to watch it over and over again. My Sister and I were 6+ years older and it always made us laugh, such an adorable memory. Sidenote: 1885 Doc is kind of a hunk (personality wise) and I love how Biff's entire family over a century is basically summed-up with "O'Doyle Rules!".

Cheering// The Women's World Cup! What an awesome victory. And dare I say, breaking the theme of soccer games, that the last game was actually really exciting?! Love to see female sports hollered at so hard across the board. Get it girls!

Eating// Juicy nectarines & plums lately. Is there anything better in summer?! My gosh. 
Delightfully// Doing gym workouts more than running. Every time I get back into the mix there, I feel so much better than when I run more. I'm definitely more of a gym gal. Basking in those endorphins as of late.

Wanting// To be Lori Greiner (from "Shark Tank"). She's the best blend of sophistication, style, kindness, brains & balls. Love her!

Happily// waited for the train to pass on our run. Jay (who runs about 5-6 miles a day, 3-4 times a week) HATES this train because once it starts, it traps you for at least 12 minutes. We were 8 minutes into our run and it started whizzing by and he was just irate. As he stood on the guardrail hoping to see the caboose, I secretly stood behind him thanking my lucky stars we had a little forced breather in the crazy heat.

Anticipating// Some sleep this weekend. All vacations should end with a full night of sleep and leisurely wake-up the next day. When you don't get that, you're a zombie, which has been my starring role the last few days. As 98 Degrees stated: Give me just one night! Una noche!

Have a great weekend!

Maybe you'll get a call from the walking dead? lol nice Billy Madison reference too. As Biff's family always got the manure

I hate running so kudos to you for even running at all!! And amen to the sleep. We all say we want it, but then we would rather do something. Here's to you actually getting some sleep. :)

No running for me. I'd be praying that the train never ended. LOL!

Stone fruits are my jam. I can't get enough. One of the best things about summer, hands down.

I don't mind getting stuck by trains. They're interesting to look at with all that graffiti and such.

I lost my grandmother when I was 12 and my mom passed 7 years ago. It's so hard to lose the people you're close to and while it gets easier, it never truly goes away. But the best thing you can do is just remember them and the great times you shared :)

Oh man. Back to the Future is the greatest. I really love that trilogy. I hope they don't mess it up by "rebooting" it.

Mmm. Plums and nectarines. I need those in my life.

@Pat- the Tannens & the O'Doyles are very similar!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Jax- ha, that's forever the battle, isn't it?

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Steph- I've never heard them called 'stone fruits' before! Learn something new every day.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Kate- me too!! Old pictures are so fascinating to look at.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Kristen- ha, if I'm not running late I don't mind it!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Madilyn- the graffiti is often really pretty actually!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Melissa- oh gosh, that would be a terrible mistake to remake the series! And I'm so sorry about the loss of your grandma and your mom! Hugs. Thanks for your kind words.
