Summer strangeness

I love this.  Summer warmth is here!  It’s like the sun wants to give us a big hug.  There will be no complaining about “excessive heat” from me.  Strange things happen when it starts to get hot…

I find myself buying A LOT of fruit…or maybe it was just the screaming toddler at the store that somehow pushed me over the edge to buy raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, grapes and bananas.

Yes, I will eat all that fruit and yes that's strawberries on my salad.

Don’t worry Mom I had some dairy and peanut butter—all food groups were represented in my dinner.

I wear all black…I know you are thinking, “that girl is craaaaaaaazy.”  For some unknown reason I decided to forgo all fun skirts/dresses and “summer” clothing today at work.  I think it was mostly because I was trying to accomodate some shoes that I am attempting to break in.

Yes I wore these for 9 hours today, no I didn't fall.

You see I’m in a wedding this weekend and I don’t want to trip while walking down the aisle so I think I broke these in.  Jenna, Nathan you guys can get married now; I am ready.

Pavement Failure.  That’s right I saw that on my drive home via the 94.  This caused me a little bit of concern that the pavement that I was driving on at that very moment was going to fail and my car would fall into a giant sinkhole.  Since I was too busy driving to take a picture of “Pavement Failure” I’m going to share this delightful video from MNDot about merging, because people need to learn a few things.

Yes, that’s right you just learned about zipper merging, you are welcome.

Concluding our summer strangeness a certain team that I will not mention by name has been doing surprisingly well, that’s all I’m going to say about that.

  1. Amber, I like your shoes a lot! Where did you end up finding them? Also, I wore jeans for 3 hours outside today. it was like death. All black is at least a better choice than that. 🙂

    • I got them at Debs…at the MOA while surrounded by 14 year old girls singing along to the latest pop song that I did not know. Dress cool for the zoo tomorrow!

  2. I bought lots of fresh fruit too on my last grocery shopping trip–strawberries, cantaloupe, blueberries–and dad got apples, grapes and bananas. I think we all crave fresh fruit after a long winter.

    I have way too much lettuce growing in my mini-garden, if you (or anyone) wants some.

    The shoes are cute, cute, cute and will look perfect with your dress. I expect to see photos of you and of the lovely bride, Jenna. Congrats, Jenna, so happy for you.

    As for zipper merging and road construction, I will only state that I am happy to live in “the middle of nowhere.”
