1. I may or may not have changed my mind about my feelings toward summer since my last Miscellany Monday post. It is so. dang. hot! And I sweat like a man (thanks for those genes, Dad), so it really isn’t pretty. I am really trying to live in the moment and remember how much I longed for summer to be here. But it’s so hard not to get excited about my favorite season coming up, especially when Target has already had back-to-school signs up for a while and schools here won’t start for another 6 or 7 weeks! Craaaazy.
2. Chris and I watched the movie 2012 last night, rented from the library. I really like John Cusack, Amanda Peet, and Danny Glover. But that movie was so horrible! I was laughing at how ridiculous it was – and it was sooo long! We were about 2 and half hours in and I told Chris that I had to stay up just to see how the stupid thing ended – I had too much invested in the movie! haha Do yourself a favor – don’t ever rent it.
3. So, one of the many reasons I’m excited to live back in CT is that we will be “close” to Trader Joe’s (about an hour away). However, it just dawned on me yesterday that Chipotle is on the same road! Blissssssss!

If you haven’t had Chipotle, you haven’t lived. I’m just sayin’. There are going to be a lot of road-trips to Warwick, RI, in my future. :)
4. Last thing - my sister has a summer job catering this summer and I just had to share this: she worked a wedding this weekend (in CT) for the daughter of the guy who invented motion sensor lights. The champagne for the toasts? $37,000 (Don Perignon). The tip for the wait-staff? $100 each – for all 67 of them. Oh, and the cost of the wedding itself?
A cool $2 million.
Pick yourself up off the floor now. :)
