That truly does describe me. Today i was so happy to spend the day on the lake and in my favorite town. My husband and dad went fishing for the day. They set out for perch but ended up catching sheephead, catfish and walley!
Mom and i walked around downtown Vermilion. We stopped at my favorite coffee shop and ran into Allie LaForce. She is from town but she was also miss teen USA, a sports anchor and a sports journalist the NBA and college basketball. She was there with her husband Joe Smith who is a pitcher for the MLB. We talked to both of them for awhile about her pregnancy and their fight to find a cure for Huntington’s disease. They were so sweet and we enjoyed talking to them!
After our breakfast stop we walked around town. We walked through the farmers market, shopped at a local boutique and checked out the chalk walk.
This evening i spent some quality time with the most needy sister ever 🤣. Luckily she is super cute!!!
After a long, but fun day, we all decided salads, pizza and subs sounded like a good idea for dinner. I was so happy to be at the lake for a million dollar sunset. As we were walking back to the house i also noticed the vibrant first quarter moon!!! It’s very rare that i catch a gorgeous sunset and a gorgeous moonrise! It truly was a wonderful day!
Lunch at the lake means beautiful views all around. We ate lunch in Marblehead right at this boat marina!
It’s not a sundae without the whip cream and cherry on top! So grateful for a local ice cream stand that sells real ice cream!!!
Every morning we take the oldest nanny kid to swim practice. This gives me time to explore with the littles. Outside the pool and clubhouse is the cutest little lake. Some days we see ducks. Some days we see fishermen. Today we saw a beautiful rainbow formed by the sun shining through the fountain.
This week john is on vacation. That means i come home from work to dinner on the grill!!!!! Steak salads and corn on the cob for dinner!
This weeks theme at baton was red, white and blue! I love seeing what the girls come up with each week! Here are my 2 competition teams!
During my morning walk i had to take a photo of this cute bridge. It brings me joy in two ways. At the beginning of my walk I’m so grateful to cross the bridge into the woods because it means i get out of the hot sun. When i see this bridge at the end of the walk it means i am almost back home!
Ended the week baking in the sun and watching my niece play in a double header. No place i would rather be. The weather was amazing (mid 80’s) and the girls were ready to play. Cally ended the second game pitching. She did a wonderful job, not only pitching, but making an out at first base. Very proud of this amazing little girl.
Vacation for me has begun and it started on Lake Erie 💕 My dad, John and i went fishing. The weather was perfect, although cool at times, but we enjoyed the day. We caught a catfish and a white bass, but no walleye. We can blame the Mayflies for that. A day on the water is better than working (as the boys would say)!
Tuesday was HOT. The temp was in the 90’s. I scrapbooked a little and then read my book at the pool. In the evening i coached for a few hours. They gym wasn’t hot but it was humid.
Wednesday was another hot 90°+ day. I finally was able to get my nails and toes done. In the afternoon i cooled down in the pool and did a few more scrapbook pages!
Thursday i decided i needed some retail therapy. Life’s been a little stressful and i needed a good walk around target 😂. While there i saw a beautiful shower curtain. It inspired me to redecorate the hallway bathroom because it definitely needed a fresh look. The shower curtain and rugs had seen better days. I chose turquoise, not because i love that color, but it just looked fresh, clean and gave off a calm vibe. Grabbed some new rugs, hand towel and changed the wall art! Sometimes it’s the little things that cheer us up!
Bonus photo….Thursday night was superhero night at baton. Here i am with some of my girls. And yes the little one is dressed up (and posed) like Mulan. She told me princesses are superheroes. She’s not wrong!
Saturday we played at the lake. It was a beautiful summer day!
