Y’all I used to always say I wanted to try an adult coloring book when I was in law school! And this one is perfect because it says Bless Your Heart! I think people who aren’t from the south think that we southerners only use that phrase for negative things, like “Peggy Sue has gained 20 pounds from the steroids, bless her heart.” And while that would be a proper way to use the phrase, I think we use it as a way to express legitimate concern as well. Coloring as a kid was so fun and I’m excited to see if it’s as fun as an adult. Some things that I did as a kid are just as fun doing them as an adult. Case in point: Cinnamon rolls on Sunday. We had doughnuts every Saturday morning growing up and cinnamon rolls every Sunday. My sister used to split the last one into thirds for she, my brother, and I. And now she’s an accountant – go figure. Making sure those numbers are fair. haha
This week was a great one. Hot, but great. Nilla and I have been loving our daily walks/runs through campus and around Chapel Hill admiring all the beautiful homes. It’s so humid so even though I probably run .0002 miles, it feels like a workout because as soon as I step outside I’m drenched in sweat. The humidity brings in dark thunderclouds almost every afternoon and I love listening to the soothing sound of the rain. Except when thunder strikes and the power goes out and you realize your phone only has 5% … that’s not so soothing.
And some people might say, based on that last sentence, that I’m too attached to my phone and need to learn how to live without it – especially when I never use it to call people but rather for social media / the internet. My friend and I had a long talk about social media this week and she thought we would all be better without it. I’m sure everyone is aware of the snapchat vs. Instagram debate as well..
But the way I see it, none of the social media / digital age is going anywhere soon. So why not just focus on the positive of it? My cousin sara just moved to Seattle and thanks to snapchat I’ve seen not only her amazing road trip and her dog’s enthusiastic discovery of the Pacific Ocean, but I’ve gotten to see her neighborhood, her apartment, and HER! My grandmother, who is on snapchat, said that she loved seeing the Coker Arboretum on my daily runs. And while it’s true people are looking down at their screens, I don’t think it should be discounted that a lot of what they are looking at is their friends and family that they wouldn’t get to see if it were 1989.
Anyway, hope you have some fabulous weekend plans! I plan to hang with 2 of my girlfriends, and David has Saturday off which is like winning the lottery – an off day AND it’s a Saturday!? Say whattt!?!?! Happy Friday and thanks so much for reading 🙂
