Perfect End to a Perfect Day

I left a comment just a couple of weeks ago on Robin's blog about how one second your vacation is just starting and the next, you're packing up and headed home.

And MANNNN! It just happened to me! The week is already over! How unfair is that! I feel like I was just saying to my husband that I was so happy it was Sunday, because we still had the whole week ahead of us. But now it is Friday and it's over. It went by too quick.

We had a beautiful "staycation" though (that's the new term for a vacation close to home. Clever, huh?). And I did take approximately one billion pictures. If our staycation was a fireworks display, then this would be the grand finale:

The Sun Setting

The Sun Setting: two minutes later

The Sun has set.

Of course, after the sun has set, where do you go but to Kilwin's for ice cream and other bad sugary wonderfulness.

The most evil, evil sign in all of the world.

Subsequently, the most evil, evil display in all of the world. I am going to keep it to myself exactly how many slabs of fudge we have partaken in this staycation. The fact that they call it slabs should really be a red flag for me. But I will say that in the coming week, which I will call "the week of Detox", I will dedicate each workout to a particular meal-slash-sweet indiscretion.

Oh boy.

That will mean a lot of workouts.

A couple for fudge, one for the KFC, another for the pizza, the New York Strip, the sangria, the beer (or rather, the two trips to the Irish pub around the corner),
You know what? Who cares. It's the Summer of Me.

The winner of the Bebe au Lait nursing cover is flchen1! Congrats to you! Thank you everyone for stopping by! I had fun in this Bloggy Carnival!!! May all of us "modest mommies" stick together and nurse on!
