Lazy Sunday

The temperature has been in the 80's and 90's for most of July. Whoo hoo! I guess we're experiencing a bit of a heat wave. I'll take it! It really has been HOT, but I would choose it over any other weather typical of update NY! 

Last Sunday, Andrew and I got a new blow-up pool to cool off in. Yes, technically it's a kiddie pool. But it does the job. Sunday was also the women's world cup finals, U.S. vs. Japan. Andrew thought it would be the ultimate lazy Sunday to combine the two. Kiddie pool + world cup game = ultimate backyard relaxation. 

Complete with his laptop set up on a tray table, umbrella duct taped to a chair and snacks. What more could you ask for? 

Andrew is very creative when it comes to "fun." Anything involving sports, games, music, movies or TV is right up his alley. 

This was our old "fancier" blow-up pool, which had a filter and room for a few floats. It cooled us off for three summers. This year we had to let it go. One too many holes. I kinda miss it. Especially since it's not here to cover up the giant dirt circle it left behind. Our new pool is much easier to set up and put away. Wow, look at the difference in color of our grass in these photos. Lush and green compared to brown and dry. We could use some rain.

Today, is my fun-lovin' husbands 29th birthday. Happy birthday love! I have a feeling it will be another lazy lounging type of Sunday (especially after his party last night). You are really loved by your friends and family! Especially by me. I am thankful to call you mine. Even if you act like a karaoke fool once in a while :)


  1. What a kick ass pool set up ... table for drink, ice bucket, you are all set! Happy Birthday to your other half too :)

  2. LOL too funny!! I miss our GIANT pool we had a few summers ago!
