The thing I like about summer in Texas is that it kind of goes on forever. Sure it’s 100+ degrees some days but just when I think it’s about to turn to fall, I remember that it’s just now August. We still have summer nights for another month or so, we can still move a little slower during the day and blame the heat for everything for just a little bit longer. Of course, technically speaking we will have summer temperature for another 2 or 3 months and at some point you just give up on the hope of cooler weather and wear your fall boots anyways. Girl code.

But I do feel like in the summer we are just more fun. Like last night for instance, we went to a friend’s 30th birthday party in Dallas. We actually socialized  with humans instead of being loners with our weird dog, so this is progress for us. Of course, by 9 pm everyone was yawning and the conversation had turned to kids and pets. I couldn’t help but think “this is 30.” But honestly I was in bed with my iPad by 10, so 30 doesn’t seem so bad. 

Also, I’m not 30, I’m 28. I just like to prepare myself for the future.

    Haha as you were describing yawning at 9 PM and turning the conversation to kids and pets I couldn’t help but think of myself and my group of friends. But looking back, I’m good with it. I don’t have it in me to stay up later anyway πŸ™‚ You look gorgeous!

    Well, as I'm looking at 40 in the next three months, I can attest to this! Thirty was great though. A wondeful decade. I am not, however, embracing the thought of 40…

    Love the look! That top is darling! Here's hoping your summer continues to be mellow!

  109. I love your shoes!! I was in bed by 10 with my iPad on Saturday night, and had a similar thought. One of my friends said something along the lines of "Do you guys really just like staying home these days too" as we were packing up for the night. Why yes, yes I do πŸ˜‰

    Enjoy your last few months of summer. I’m in Ohio, and for us, August is pretty much the end of it. Next month, it could snow (not really…I hope).

    30 is fabulous. I turned 30 right after having my son, so it was all a blur but I love being 34. I also love going to bed before midnight. I’ve never been much of a night owl and it’s nice to get some sleep.

    Getting close to 30….you can tell once your Facebook page starts filling up with yes, as you mentioned “kids and pets”. I just turned 29 last fall so 30 is just around the corner. But hey, everyone gets there eventually. I may as well embrace that fact.
