Are We Halfway Through the Summer Yet?

I walked through Nordstrom's shoe department the other day and secretly wished that I could buy some of those pairs of shoes. They are just so cute and fun! I admit that I felt a little self-conscious of my $10 Old Navy jellies, even though I think they are pretty adorable. I have never been a shoe person, simply because I don't have a lot of money. And if I had a lot of money, I wouldn't spend it on shoes unless they were ones that I would wear every day and were very comfortable (translation: teacher shoes!). I normally wear $5 flip flops and I love them. If they break, it's not a big deal.

My sister Carolyn gets back tomorrow from North Africa. I am so excited! I can't wait to hang out with her every day and go on random adventures with her. Last summer was so much fun. We got to live together and since we share a car, we did everything together. People called her my "other half" and would be shocked if either of us went somewhere without the other. We are so different and yet we get along so well. She knows how to encourage me and make me feel special, and will tell me straight up if I'm being selfish or stupid. I hope that the rest of this summer is a time of great growth for us.

Can I just say how much I miss HEB? I wish they had them in the Dallas area. That is the best supermarket in the world. Kroger and Wal-Mart don't even get close!

Well, I know this post is short but there's not a lot to write about. Hopefully I'll have more news soon!
