Last night, some friends and I went down to one of the local colleges to see all the hot air balloons they had set up. It had the atmosphere of a city-wide picnic on the hill, as tons of people came out and spread out the blankets and lawn chairs, ate dinner, and watched the sun set, and then the balloons glowed in the dark.
Then today, it was church and spending the afternoon at a friend's baby shower. I went to Barnes and Noble to the children's book section to get her some books for when her little girl gets here, and was so excited to see that some of my all-time childhood favorites are still popular today: like the Frog and Toad series, the Berenstain Bears, Amelia Bedelia, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Dr. Seuss. I may have gone a little crazy picking out books, but I was just so excited that the next generation is still going to have quality children's books.
Not sure I'm ready to deal with Monday just yet, but tomorrow won't be so bad because I am really excited about 1) finally getting back to my favorite Monday boot camp workout class that I haven't been able to go to for two months because of scheduling issues, and 2) the Biggest Loser finale!! It's going to be great.
