Ice cream truck! I heard it from blocks away (I immediately was transported to my childhood in Texas). We’ve lived here for almost 5 years and we’ve never had an ice cream truck in the neighborhood.

A hard 30 minute workout is better than nothing, right?

Oh no!

The Saved By the Bell made for TV movie is starting right now (on Lifetime) and my DirectTV box has chosen now to completely reset.

They’re swimming and I’m wearing jeans and a hoodie.

Lunch at Piece with my bestie. Black olive, feta, and tomatoes with the white sauce, yum!

A little while back I posted a question to you all about white jeans. Well, I found a pair I love by NYDJ. They’re great and not see through at all. They are not high rise but a little higher then mid-rise, so no problems with muffin-top. Also, they say with their technology you can order a size down and they’re right. I’m wearing one size smaller but don’t feel squeezed in. Plus free shipping and returns and you get a coupon code when you sign up for their emails. So there’s my review. I like them so much, I’ll be buying a new pair of blue skinnys in the fall.

Getting the oil changed. Walked next door to Standard Market for a cider while I wait. This turned into quite the enjoyable errand.

One of the thousands of crazy people that waited out in the heat at the Brookfield Zoo to see The Wild Kratts live shows today. But the kids got high fives from both brothers, so it was worth it.

PS Chicago parents, they are doing 2 more shows tomorrow (Sunday), your kids will love you! I promise. (Just get there early and sit on the aisle)
