if you're looking for me tomorrow...

I will be at Target buying a frisbee and a picnic blanket. What's that? You're wondering what is prompting me to make these purchases tomorrow? Well, I'll let you in on the reason... the weather here is fabulous!

Today I woke up dredging the fact that I desperately needed to go to the grocery store. We were out of pretty much everything and I was just not in the mood. That is, I was not in the mood before I checked the weather. Every website I checked said the same thing but this Texas girl could not believe the temperatures that were showing up. Ladies and gentlemen, the computer was right and the weather was pure magic. When I ventured out to the grocery store today, in the middle of the day, at the end of August, the temperature outside was 75 degrees.

I feel like I should say that again for all of you... it was SEVENTY-FIVE DEGREES OUTSIDE. In August. At noon.

In celebration of this wonderful weather, Kyle and I took a little evening stroll and discovered an incredible park near our apartment. I have driven by it several times but never ventured inside and oh. my. goodness. I am in love. I already have two picnics lined up for us, one this weekend and one on my birthday (which is September 2, since I am assuming you now want to know) The park is huge and really beautiful. There are even ducks for me to feed. DUCKS! Saturday can't get here fast enough!

That's all I've got for all of you readers. An entire post dedicated to the amazing-ness that is Atlanta weather. I know, not the most exciting thing that has ever been written, but if you had been here today you would understand. And if you are familiar with what the weather is like in Texas right now, you would really understand.

ps-as if the weather wasn't good enough, my new copy of Vogue greeted me in the mailbox today. Not bad for a Monday.


  1. Well glad you had nice temperatures in Atlanta. We are still hot as heck in Texas.

  2. I can actually hear you saying these words outloud! I love it Steph!

  3. Don't know if you've heard about this yet, but since you are a Vogue reader (and I'm sure you've seen The Devil Wears Prada):

  4. I am so jealous....and so ready for cooler weather down here.

  5. I just watched the video, Lauren. I need to find some girls in Atlanta to see that with me! Jennifer gave me the Vogue subscription at one of my bridal showers... she is brilliant and it is one of the most wonderful shower gifts I received!
