Today’s Happy Note: Looking at different gyms for the summer. It’s fun, but some of them are expensive!
Caronae is a very tired pumpkin seed today. Lots of walking and time in the sun = one exhausted girl. I’m going to have to let the pictures do (most of) the talking.
Festivals in Brooklyn with friends are fun.
BAM is fun.
Piles of blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and whip cream are fun. My friend’s dad invited us over for brunch. These were divine; I have no idea how he got them so fluffy, but it was like eating a pillow. A pillow stuffed with mountains of wild blueberries.
Rooftop gardens are spectacularly fun. New York City in the summertime is fun (when it’s not deathly hot).
Bowls, drums, jewelry. All fun.
Fun fact about Caronae: I love elephants.
Fresh fruit = fun snack (strawberry and pear).
Free new shoes are very fun! I got these from my friend’s dad’s girlfriend. I have very few dress shoes so these will be nice for work.
Egg puffs in salads are always fun.
Not obsessing about exercise or precise calorie intake is pretty fun too! I got in my fair share of walking today too. I don’t have a picture, but McDonald’s sweet tea is wonderfully fun. I am aware that it’s mostly sugar and I don’t care. It is one of the best drinks in the world and is the only thing I go to McDonald’s (or really any fast food place) for.
What was fun for you today?
It’s easy to forget how important fun is for our mental health. If you have trouble letting yourself have fun (I think many women, especially, do), make a list of your favorite fun things and try one out when you’re feeling down.
My list includes things from this post and…
- new swimsuits
- word games and sudoku puzzles
- picnics with friends
- adventures in the park
- any type of flower, especially orchids
- collecting bird pins
- frozen fruit in the summer
- checking out books from the library
- cooing over fuzzy ducklings
- reading poems
- reading blogs
- finding discounted kitchen appliances
- wearing dresses
And many more things, of course! 🙂 What does your fun list look like?
