Simple Pleasures

Some weeks it feels like it takes forever for Friday to get here, but now that I have near-future plans, this week just flew on by! I usually don't post this late, but the day seemed to get away from me, so here are my simple pleasures...better late than never!

Mad Men
There are times when I feel like I was born in the wrong era. Occasionally I wish I grew up in the 20s and other times I wish I grew up in the 50s, 60s, or 70s. Right now I'm in a stage where I imagine life during the 60s because I've been catching up on Season 5 of Mad Men before the new season premieres on Sunday. Really, I'm looking forward to seeing what Joan and Megan will be wearing next season! 

Nike Swimsuit

With my vacation just beyond the horizon, I decided to go shopping for a new bathing suit. I really don't need one, but I haven't bought a swimsuit in a couple of years. My trip was the perfect excuse and now I have a great new suit to wear on the beach! I tried on at least a dozen swimsuits, but this one really worked the best. I don't wear frilly things very well at times and there were a few that definitely looked better on the hanger. This Nike two-piece works well for me because it's basic, well made, and works for my figure. Even though I may not be quite as toned as I used to be, I'm still thin and I still look pretty athletic. Besides, it's given me motivation to work out again!

I bought these small canvases ages ago, but I never seemed to get around to doing anything with them. Well, I finally made the time to break out my paints and brushes and start on something. This is a close-up of one of the larger squares and it definitely isn't close to being finished, but at least I started working on them!
