This Past Week...

I have been so busy this last week that I'm sadly STILL reading the book I was reading last weekend and haven't made much progress.  Too much other stuff that I've wanted to do.  And my TBR pile is growing as I've recieved books for fall reviews.  EEEK!

Things I Read That You Should Too....

It's Okay to Just Be Sad -  The lovely Law Momma shared this beautifully written post about depression and why it's okay to just be sad, it's not necessary to always be smiling.  If you're sad, you're sad.

Be The Light - Miranda shared this and I couldn't help sharing it also on facebook because there are a lot of people who need to read it.  I have so many loved ones who live with depression and just as many love ones who say stupid shit in the name of being helpful.  A must read if you read nothing else I link.

If you are NOT reading Law Momma's blog, you really should.  I've said it here before and I will continue saying it, she's an awesome writer.  Also, if you haven't heard about Ferguson, Missouri than you REALLY need to get start google searching because it is completely unacceptable and ridiculous!

Best Parts....

Monday - The weather was yucky but we still went to my parents and I ended up wading in the lake as Isla got to enjoy an impromptu swim in her underwear.  She thought THAT was pretty awesome.

Tuesday - A fun library trip together during the morning and then I had a lovely solo trip to our local mall and was pleasantly surprised to find two work shirts, a pair of jeans and a potential dress for some upcoming weddings!

Wednesday - We went to the local farmers market and walked around downtown.  Then we went to our local gardens for the luch time concert and ended to the childrens garden for some fun time playing with bubbles and water and craft time.

Thursday - I spent 4 hours shopping with my best-friend and ended up with new shoes, skirt, jacket and a suit jacket.  I also picked up an outfit for my child. 

Friday - A lovely out doors lunch with my mom and then a fun time at the county fair as a family.  And a chocolate malt was enjoyed and a Lemon Berry Shandy.  Was kind of disappointed overall by the fair food (typical) but my treats at home made up for it. ;)

The Not So Good...

At the park yesterday, my kid was thrown off the play structure by a child who was clearly special needs right in front of me.  It was the most terrifying moment of my life and I have so much anger about it that I won't say anything more but THANK GOODNESS she is okay and doesn't seem to be as scarred by it as I was.  And right after she had finally gotten the courage to try something new and be brave (she's super cautious).  Ugh. 

Hope you all had a great week! Were you busy? Did you read a lot? Any new book recommendations? What is your favorite fair food?
