Weekend Favos

As I sit here, sipping/chugging my iced coffee and procrastinating school work even more, I've been reflecting a bit on my favorite things. (Yes, raindrops on roses AND whiskers on kittens!) So I've made a list for you. Feel free to like these things as much as I do. I hope they can bring you the same kinda happiness they bring me.

1) Nail polish, nail polish, nail polish! Current seasonal faves, and both on my fingers as I type:

Essie's Turquoise and Caicos
Essie's Ole Caliente

2) This. Freaking. Movie.

If you have yet to see this movie, first of all- shame on you. Second of all, that's enough stalling. Rent it. Buy it. Illegally download it (but then buy it so that you can support this fabulous film). I found this film to be a deep breath of fresh air. If you don't finish watching this movie with a big hankering to watch either City Lights and/or Singin' in the Rain, go back and do it again. You clearly watched it wrong. If Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds hadn't already put "learn how to dance wicked good" on my bucket list, Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo just did.

3) The beach. With my four leggers (and fellow two legger, of course). 

Just a couple of beach bums.

After a long day of attacking foot high shore break, (read: a day of projectile throwing up salt water due to vicious attacks on foot high shore break), Lady is feeling much better, contrary to her facial expression in this picture.

Max, smarter than little Lady, did not stage attacks on the Gulf today and greatly enjoyed his (and his momma's!!!) first beach trip to Galveston.

Friday was my first beach day here in Texas (yes, and it only took me 5 years to embrace it...). My rad sister-in-law and amazing new cousins took me back in November for a wild and crazy weekend, but alas, the weather had been even too cold for me to hit up the water. I did stick my feet in though...while wearing my fleece and long pants. Back then, it was reminiscent of Cape Cod.

Friday, not only were pants nowhere near in sight (get your mind out of the gutter- it was a million degrees outside), but I couldn't see the bottom. This water was brown. B.R.O.W.N. Like, I held my hand about an inch under the surface and I couldn't see it. I hear that can be normal for Galveston? Woof. BUT- brown water, raging heat and a humidity that just won't quit aside, it was a really nice "day." (I'd call it a day without parenthesis, but it was so freaking hot that we only lasted like 2 hours before Lady started vomming all over the place [] and Max kept trying to sit on my sweet mother in law's towel...or just straight up on my mother in law.) Lady got to try out her new life jacket (pictures of that one to come!) and Max kept trying to throw his body down and roll all around in the dried seaweed along the waters edge. Sometimes my dogs are really special...

4) Daydreaming about our upcoming New England trip!!! This one's so good it requires it's own post. Maybe tomorrow. Orrrr later tonight, as I'm sure to continue NOT doing homework.

5) THIS MOVIE. In our dvd player and on my telly right now. 

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it.

Remember how freaking awesome John Hughes was? I dare you to find someone who hasn't seen (and totally dug) at least 3 of his flicks. (Hell-oooooo?! The Molly Ringwalds. Boom.) They just don't make movies like these anymore.

6) 5 day weekends with this guy... Thanks, America.

He's even cute pixelated.
