Let me say, that my summer has seem to taken full force for me this week! Not only has the weather become much warmer (and humid..), but my schedule seems to be filling up with many exciting events. I have some interesting news to share with you guys and a few updates.
As of last week, I learned that my family in New York has offered to let me stay with them for basically the month of July!! You do not understand how excited I was to hear this!!! I definitely jumped on this offer and this Saturday I will be off to the city for ~4 weeks!! More or less, I will be babysitting, but that is cool with me since I am practically in love with their kids. <3 Where I live is just so boring that I need to get out of here and where better else to go than New York with my family? I'm currently
I've been out pretty much most of this week with friends. I'm not sure if that is a good idea or not since I actually have my permit test tomorrow... I know I haven't studied as much as I need to so I will have to spend the rest of today taking a bunch of practice test. I can do it!
Going out with my friends was so much fun! It was actually quite relaxing to just get out of the house for a few days and talk with others. (I've been around the same people for way too long) My mind has been constantly running recently, and I know I'm just stressing myself out so I really needed these days out! Yesterday I headed out to the beach. I usually don't enjoy going to the beach, but I haven't been this year so I said why not as long as I wear lots of sunscreen! The weather was just perfect for the beach!! It was so relaxing. I laid there for a while talking and then went for a walk around the beach. Loved it! =)
I guess I am working backwards here with my week, but the weekend before, I actually took a spontaneous day trip to the city with my mom. Something about my last trip to New York by myself was pushing at me to go back and see things once more. That trip was my first alone and for some reason, it keeps coming back to my mind and I can't help but feel a bit sad, but happy about it. I think it just has to do with the fact that in the back of my head, I knew that I had the chance to go to school there and to be in the city 24/7, but I gave it up in the end.
After seeing everything once more, I felt less sad about things and realized that my choice has been made. I'll still have a chance to go back and visit whenever I wish which made me feel a lot better.

My last picture for today are actually a pair of Nike Women's Flex 2014 that came in the mail an hour or so ago!! I desperately needed a new pair of running shoes and after learning I was going to be in the city for a month, I knew I needed to get a pair soon so I went in store and fell in love with a few different nike styles. The only thing was that my size wasn't there... I decided to go online and found the exact pair of the ones that I loved the most. I checked the price and was shocked to see how cheap they were compared to the store. Upon closer inspection, I realized it was only a size 6 that was cheaper since there was only one shoe left in stock! The next size up, 6.5, was almost $20 more. I was originally going to get the 2013 style shoe, but the price difference was only $4 so I chose to get 2014! ... yeah it rocks to have smaller than average feet!
Are you a fan of going to the beach in the summer? for me, I'm not the biggest fan, but going once in a while if fine with me!
What are some of your plans for summer?
Have you ever gotten a deal on an item because of your "unique/one left in stock" size?
**Since I am going to be in New York for the summer, my blogging schedule will be up in the air. I don't know if I have time/want to blog while I am there. I'll probably blog once a week or so about things, but I'm most likely won't be writing twice a week. It's a bit time consuming and I would like to enjoy my last summer before college. =) I'll be back in August though!! **
