1. Olympic Trials. It’s official. We’re less than a month from the grandest sporting extravaganza in the world, the 2012 London Olympics. I don’t know about y’all, but I cannot wait to cheer on America in every sport from tennis to track, water polo to weightlifting. The Olympics is one of the upmost unifying and uplifting events. Why not kick off all that excitement a little early? Every day on NBC, there is coverage of the track, swimming, and gymnastics qualifying events. It’s fantastic to feel that emotion and joy as you watch the young athletes gain their chance to represent our country. Join in the festivities and get pumped for what is to come in a month! (If for nothing else, tune in to see some really attractive, athletic guys in bathing suits!)
2. Reading. Sick of hearing about 50 Shades of Grey in all of its trashy glory? I am. In an attempt for find something a little more appetizing to read this summer, I happened upon this flow chart that gives some marvelous suggestions. With everything from classics such as The Great Gatsby to modern era stories like Imperial Life in the Emerald City, this flow chart can satisfy what ever genre in which you are interested.
3. Erin Condren. This little gem of a website has helped feed my organizational addiction. With all kinds of cards, stationary, notebooks, calendars, and more, erincondren.com is the perfect place to get gifts and what you need to get your life in order. My most favorite product is the 2012/2013 Life Planner. These agendas are like the queens of all agendas ever. You can get yours personalized in any color or print you want. It comes laminated with tabs for each month and all kinds of stickers for different events. These planners are super cute; I can’t wait to order mine.
