I think that is why summer always goes by so quickly, with each day slightly shorter than the last. I wish today was in August instead of June.
But it is still the beginning of summer, and there are still eight more days of June. June always feels like it has the most potential, like you could do anything this summer, late nights swimming, long days at the beach, four day weekends on Block Island or day trips to the city, or icy blended cocktails with live music during steamy hot nights... It could happen. I hope it happens.
So I had meant to do a post last night to wrap up my weekend, but it was a long busy one, with my towns annual festival and then Father's day with not one, but two birthday parties to attend. (Neither of which were terribly exciting, friends of the families babies... had to make an appearance though.)
I like my town's festival, it's pretty much the same every year, but there is joy in tradition. Friday night Vonda Shepard preformed, who I only really knew of because she was on Ally McBeal. But I liked her music and it was fun show.
Saturday all kinds of vendors cover the green, tons of jewelry. Almost to the point of boring. But I did see this:
After all my hard work of creating my own, why did that damn necklace have to go and show up? Just plopped on the table, like it's nothing. It was $25 too. Not too bad, considering it's $57 counterpart. Part of me wanted to buy it. Part of me said I could just go and sell it on ebay for $100, which I could. But I knew if I brought it home it would stay, and that it would be insulting to myself if I did. So I snapped the picture and walked away.
The vintage store that opened recently, Coco's on the Green had a tent, and everything in it was $10. You know that is my heaven and while I had an armful of items, sadly most didn't fit. I did come home with one dress, and here is a little preview:
I have no idea where I'm going to wear this. Anyone want to go for cocktails in swanky club in NYC? Anyone?
I indulged in my yearly strawberry shortcake, just layers of goodness.
And I wore my cute turquoise floral dress, which is somehow so much shorter than I remember it being... Any ideas on what might look good layered underneath it? I felt like when I sat down a little too much was on display!

That evening a Fleetwood Mac cover--oh sorry, Tribute Band played, and they sounded really good. True, I can't exactly compare to the real deal, but I had a good time, save for this creepy old dude who kept trying to dance with me! He put his hands on my waist, kept trying to take my hands, eventually I just had to leave!
Why is it that I always seem to attract the creepy old dudes? Cute young men, I implore you -- Flirt With Me!!!
Sunday morning was the Road Race that I neither partake in nor watch. Town Pride!! I do partake in the pancake breakfast however, which is tasty. Almost anything covered in butter and strawberries is pretty darn tasty though. It's tradition, and I enjoy it.
These are my leftovers, as taken for the MacroMondays theme of Trash.
And that is all. Until next year. I'm already looking forward to my shortcake.
Happy Summer everyone, I hope it is everything you imagine.
