Pink on the patio

When did I become such a pink-loving girl?!

 The warm weather seems to be bringing back a resurgence of my pink obsession, and totally by accident. Pink clothes, pink nails, pink drinks...it seems to be a reoccurring theme around here this week. Hot pink is such a fun color to take advantage of in the summer. But wait, it's only February! Ah, Texas is good. I'm enjoying this sunny, mild weather to the fullest extent, especially before the extreme humidity really sets in.

I forced myself through a very hard-headed, unmotivated attitude yesterday and went for a walk/jog (I stayed out a really long time, because I was enjoying exploring the neighborhood so much) and got some errands done. I spent much of the rest of the day working, and actually got a good amount done.
Late in the day, I needed a pick-me-up, so I decided to take the laptop out onto my patio/balcony to finish up a few more things. I wished I had spent more of the day out there working! The change of scenery and the warm, fresh air, definitely helped with some motivation and focus. It felt so nice out, I decided to stay and give myself a manicure, and I enjoyed some "V8 V-Fusion" raspberry tea (quite good, very healthy, low-calorie, and yes - pink!). I think I may enjoy my morning coffee out there today, although it's a little cooler and cloudier this morning.


The life!
I can't wait until I can buy some patio furniture and fully decorate the balcony. I'd love to have a lounge chair, as well as a table and a few chairs so I can literally set up a work area when I want, but also have meals out there sometimes - hopefully with friends! It'd be great for entertaining. I'd love to string up some lights, too, to create a little atmosphere.

I want!

I want again!

Hopefully today will be as productive for me. Go on, comment and tell me how your week is shaping up! xx


  1. I can't believe you're out on the patio with no shoes on. Why the hell do I live in Chicago?

  2. It was in the mid-70s! :)
    And hey, Chicago definitely has its perks, but...good question. Haha.

    Come visit!
