*life lately is a series that looks at all the things happening in my life. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
We ventured out to Ron Jon’s beach and board fest to explore and make an effort to relax. We ended up having a great time. The whole thing was amazing. The vendors were awesome and we walked away with some sweet free swag. And everyone loves free swag.
The highlight was probably when we were watching the wake boarding demo and the guy soaked us. Connor was so shocked at what happened, he started bawling his little eyes out. The super awesome people from Billabong handed him a shiny new remote controlled boat. Needless to say, he was all smiles after that.
And we’re still dealing with Connor’s arm. We go to the ortho on Wednesday so any good juju would be awesome.
I’ve been trying my best to read for at least 30 minutes a day. I love reading but making time for it has been tricky. I’m still working through “You are a Badass.” It’s a great book and I’ve been taking tons of notes. If you’re looking for a good inspirational book, pick this one up.
St. Patrick’s Day Shenanigans
One of the local pubs (and my absolute favorite one) had a big St. Patrick’s Day festival and I finally was able to go. There was lots of beer, some amazing fish and chips (and other Irish favorites) and a ton of performers.
The best were the Irish dancers. I could’ve watched them all day.
I’ve been sticking to taking better care of myself and I’m doing pretty good with it. Every day I do something for myself. It can be something as easy as reading the book you’ve been trying to read for ages or seeing a movie, or getting a pedicure. Some days I just hang at the beach and listen to the water. Yesterday was taking a bath. It was just what I needed for some quality me time.
