hitting the mark

yesterday's goals: 100% met
of course, it certainly helps that i set the bar low. it was a lovely day, though, as lazy days go! there was a nap during a rainstorm [the best!!], plenty of trash tv [dance moms may be the most horrifying thing i've ever seen that is still entertaining], and . . . ice cream.

i have wanted to go to the parlour ice cream truck ever since i read about it on carpe durham. yesterday, josh and i braved the craziness that is a food truck rodeo so that i could get my hands on a precious cup. while these outdoor munching parties seem to be all the rage in our neighborhood, we aren't totally into the [slightly bizarre!] scene. still: it was worth it.

i'm glad this cup was pretty small because by the end i felt like i was SUGARED OUT! their ice cream actually tasted sweeter than, say, ben & jerry's. after 10 units of insulin, i felt fine, though [ha, kidding. but it might have helped].

we walked home past the old bull durham park:

. . . and were on the couch watching 127 hours by 8:30. perfect ending to a lazy day!

i will be doing everything i DIDN'T do yesterday, including a run, laundry, and regular weekend chores! it just hit me that this is a super-short work week [i'm headed to PHL on thursday for family + HLS fun].

other random weekend tidbits
apparently, louboutin just lost their exclusive rights to the red sole! the most interesting thing in the article to me was learning that companies can actually copyright a COLOR [tiffany blue + veuve cliquot orange are two examples!]


winning $100 from BlogHer + Degree may not buy you a pair of louboutins, but it would at least get you closer :) one more day to enter: here!
