Welcome to the final Grateful post for May. Side note: I can't believe it's June tomorrow! Where the H did this month go?! I'm fairly certain that it got blown away with all this bloody wind. I thought it was May, not March, man!
- I'll start with crossing a little something off my bucket list. That little something being going to Gasthof's!!!! I've wanted to go there since, you know, I was 21. I've just never gone. Thinking about it now, that's friggin' ridiculous. I decided that I wanted to pitch a tent right then and there and live there. Some day, I need to live in Bavaria, baby.
- Next, I'll give props to Mr. Sunshine. Not the junky show starring my favorite Friend, but the warming ball of gas in the sky. The last couple of weeks have tottered between being junk and being glorious. Much like today. It was beautiful for a while there, and now it's total ass out there. Back to the sunshine. I love that I've gotten not only my first but my SECOND sunburn of the year this weekend!!!!! Bring on the melanoma! (sidenote: JOKE) There's just something I adore about that sun kids. Maybe I'll check out the Vitamin D like my friend Megs did. Maybe my obsession with the sun and warmth in the warm months, and my moody blues in the colder months have something to do with that? Who knows. For now though, I'm going to just going to try to soak up as much of it as I can. Also, I'll start using sunblock, I promise. Burns are dumb.
- Gardening! HELL of a workout. I'm still a sore mutha from Saturday and Monday's gardening shenanigans. (sidenote: TOTALLY worth it! My babies are all planted!).
- Related: The crazy stuff you can find at garden stores! I went to one out here in the boonies, and I found some awesome stuff! From an 8-foot, $700 metal giraffe to a 6" banana plant to about 20 kinds of tomatoes. My current favorite thing that I found at said garden store is a CURRY PLANT!!! I'm so freaking stoked. I was poking around in the herbs, looking for rosemary (found it!) and grabbed what I thought was rosemary. NOPE. It was stinkin' curry! I love herbs because you just rub those leaves and you can smell it for hours. I was salivating for Indian for the rest of the day - despite all the dirt and soap from gardening and washing it off. I could smell that curry all afternoon, and I loved it.
- The Amazon MP3 store. I love using one of those song "hearing" apps and then finding it on the Amazon store. It's soooo convenient. Which my little bank account is saying "PUMP THE BRAKES" to, but meh. I love music, and I love that I can download it from the application to my phone. Read also: all the way to my computer. Woo!
- My cooky hubby. That guy just knows what he's doing with food. Oh, PS - that's "cook-y" as in, he likes to cook. Not a typo of "kooky." ha. He has totally pulled off smoking lately - he's a kick ass dude. However, all that delicious meat isn't so good for the waistline, you know? His amazing food is helping me practice portion control like very few things before it has. :) Yet another thing about that guy that's pretty cool.
Oh, also? I'm .4 lbs away from emerging on the other side of another "10." WHAT UPPPPPPP!?
Number two: I CANNOT find a swim suit!!!! I need something that's not a halter, and isn't a million dollars. I've tried roughly 15, and I just can't find a single one that I like. UGH.
