Burger Destiny?

So I had some time yesterday in between walking at the lake after school (it's a 2.5 mile walk!) and my physical therapy appointment, so I decided to get something little to eat and drink.

I drove to McDonald's with the thought in my head of "Oh maaann a cheeseburger would be great right now!"  But since I'm trying to be good, I decided to go with a fruit and yogurt parfait instead.  So I order my small drink and parfait, pay and get my bag.  I drive away, open the bag only to find...a cheeseburger!  

I checked my receipt just in case I said cheeseburger on mistake, but I didn't! I did say parfait! 

Apparently it was DESTINY that I have a cheeseburger that day!  Well, I can't just waste a perfectly good cheeseburger! And hey, if the Gods want me to have some meat, I will have some MEAT! 

*Oh and don't worry, it wasn't a big mac or anything,  just a regular ol' little cheeseburger.

:) Gotta love fate!

LOL I googled "Destiny" and this picture came up! Ha!

Giving In...and feeling relieved!

So I'm giving in!

I have been resisting the serious urge to go buy a bike because we really don't have anywhere to put it...except for the dining room.

But here's the reality: we rarely sit at the dining table.  And although it looks nice, if we're not using it for the time being, and need the space, why not just use the space for what we need?

So we're going to push the table to the side of the room and use it more as counter space (with chairs around it still for seating if we need it)

Dining Room as it is now
And then we can use the other side to hold our bikes! Woo!  I haven't been biking in such a long time, and have been really wanting to do so.  I am really looking forward to doing that!

We still haven't fully decided whether or not we will be moving in October or not, but for now I'm glad that we can make better use of the space that we have.

So let's see, what's new:
  • School is out
  • Summer School starts on Monday
  • I have spent the past 2 weeks relaxing, doing a lot of 31 stuff, and sleeping in. It has been glorious.  I also got to spend some time with Baby Fin and also Kins and Parker! :)
  •  It soooo flippin' hot outside! I'm a bit worried that if it's this hot in June, that we will all be melting by the time August rolls around.
  • I am teaching 6th graders for the first part of the day for Summer School and then first and second graders for the second half of the day.  It will be interesting! And exhausting!
  • I'm going to try and walk around the lake every day after school with two of my co-workers.  One loop around is around two miles, so I'm hoping that a lot of that will help me lose some weight! 
  • Tomorrow is wine day with Chris and Erin!  The 4 of us are going to a couple wineries in Northern Virginia tomorrow all day!  We are bringing snacks along and we're making a whole day out of it.  I'm really excited about it.
  • 31 has been going really well.  I did really well last month (I sold over $2100! Bam!) but of course there's always room for improvement.  In the next couple weeks I plan on reaching out to my neighbors with some mini catalogs and my business cards, starting some more catalog parties, talking to my summer school staff, and also trying to find some vendor events to do.
  • I start my master's this Fall! OMG.  Ok, that's enough about that.  I don't want to think about it yet!
 Ok, well I know that was incredibly sporadic and random, but that's me for right now!

Enjoy the weather and have a great weekend! :)
