Summer (Un)lovin'

Where has the summer gone? The back-to-school ads are on TV, yet I haven’t endured a single sunburn or mosquito bite on my fair Norwegian skin. (There’s still time!) I confess though, I love the cool weather we’ve been having in Minnesota.

It recently occurred to me that heat and humidity aren’t the only things that have been eluding me this summer. It’s wedding season right? But I haven’t had any weddings or bridal showers to attend in months. How can that be?! In fact, I haven’t been to a wedding all year. And I must say…I could totally get used to this!

Don’t get me wrong, I love almost everything about weddings. (Almost. This article nicely sums up the bouquet toss. Ugh!) I feel very blessed to have been witness to so many dear friends taking the plunge. But after eight or nine years of diamond engagement rings blinding me at most social gatherings, could it be I’m now reaching a turning point? Maybe these dancing feet of mine are finally catching a break—having already seen their majority of reception hokey pokeys and electric slides.

I don’t know exactly how I feel about this, or how long it will last. But for today, I’m enjoying the respite from Target’s Club Wedd kiosks (Do I go with the waffle maker or the pillow cases?) and the closet full of dresses (Has anyone at this wedding seen me wear this one before?). Ahhhh, summer.

Speaking of weddings, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge our beloved Bachelorette Jillian, who last night in front of thousands of television viewers accepted a hideous ($60,000!) engagement ring from the guy with the green shorty shorts. Good luck Jilly. And Reid…call me.


  1. It has been a while since I read that bouquet toss article...SO funny!

  2. I don't know which was worse - the ring or the green shorty shorts!
