Birthday Week!

So here we are another year in the books and my birthday is approaching quickly. I cannot belive that my birthday is in one week from today! First off this summer flew, but when I really thought about it, the last few years have seriously flown by. I was discussing birthday with a friend at work yesterday and I couldn't believe that I am turning 26 in a few short days. Okay, okay I know I shouldn't be complaining like it's ... four years from now but still. I think seeing these years fly by is more upsetting than I will feel when I turn 30. I think at that point I will be at a place in my life and be able to embrace it! But right now, this is just not okay. I could remember patiently waiting to turn 21!
A few days before the big 2-1!
Embarrassing moment: As we were discussing birthdays and how disgusting it is that we are getting old, I say to my friend during lunch yesterday, "I feel like I just turned 21 yesterday! How is it that was 5 years ago?! I will be in my late 20s now!!" And then we made faces at each other and stopped to think for a second .. and realized .. and thought for another quick second just in case - I don't remember what I did for my 21st birthday. Sad. Or maybe a success? I could not say because the memory has been lost in the rolodex of college memories in the back of my brain.
This is also the first year that I have NOTHING planned for the big day. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge advocate for celebrating birthdays especially my own. A party or open bar is always planned but this year I just ... it really has snuck up on me and I haven't planned a thing! Celebration suggestions are welcomed! :)
Hopefully something worth sharing comes about so I can tell you all about it!
How did you feel about entering your 'late' 20s?!

Summer Means To Me...

Summer means.... 

Trying new recipes

Taking day trips

Giving back #blessed

Vacationing at the beach

Spending time outdoors

... Instead of sitting on the computer blogging. 

To say I have been missing in action is a silly little joke. I have been missing in action, missing in reading and missing on keeping up with this little world I love so dear. I still can't get over the fact this we are in the second half of August and summer which hasn't really felt anything like summer is dwindling down to an end. The only good part about that is my day of birth is arriving quickly and fall festivities will begin! The last few weeks I have been soaking up the nice weather and late sunsets as much as I can. Spending all day on the computer in an office is enough time wasted not enjoying the great outdoors, so I kind of scrapped blogging after work because....well it's more fun to go to roof top bars on a Tuesday. Duh. 

I promise during my absence I have been trying my hardest to keep track of it all to share with you and I double promise it won't all be weekend recaps and nothing of substance! So I hope you haven't forgotten little ole me....I can't blame you if you have though...I've been a terrible bloggy friend. 

I'm here. Reading your posts ... and posting. Get ready!!
