While it's summer, it's not a vacation.

Forgive me for being a bit MIA as of late, I've been working a lot and I used both of my days off this past week to relax and spend time with my family. I spent Sunday afternoon at Maymont with Mom and got to see the new black bear Phoenix. He is so cute and had tons of personality! I went fishing on Tuesday with my parents and we were on a boat in the Newport News area so we were kind of on the James River but on the Chesapeake Bay at the same time. I only caught one fish - a small croaker so I ended up tossing it back. Surprisingly I got a very slight tan but I'll take what I can get since I normally burn like crazy.

I did receive my September Lucky magazine in the mail the other day and I definitely agree with Michelle that there's too much in it! I was also a bit miffed that they didn't offer more affordable priced shoes because I remember one of the summer issues had a ton of Target and Payless shoes featured. So far in this issue I found one pair from Payless and no Target.

I had to put my tuition and books on the credit card so it'll be no shopping for me for a while unlesss it's insanely cheap or I have an insanely good paycheck. I'm taking "Introduction to Business" and "Principles of Selling" this fall so I'm excited for that and my classes start up on the 22nd.

I'm lusting over all the new things at work - tons of cute plaid blazers and black wash denim. *sigh* I'm in love... I can't wait for the weather to cool off though. I can't wait to bust out the boots! I haven't bought any this season but my "collection" already includes black suede knee-high boots with a kitten heel and pointed toes that I scored on sale from Ann Taylor Loft a couple years ago, black western/cowgirl boots that I found in the kids department at Saxon's this past winter, and black square toe stretch knee high with a stacked heel that my mom bought for me quite a few years ago at Payless that have held up remarkably. I tend to buy somewhat classic style boots that will go with almost anything...

Sunday is the Carytown Watermelon Festival and despite being a native Richmond-er, I've never been before so I'm excited to go since I'm off work that day!
