it's not a promise, i'm just gonna call it

The beach was great. I've been reading so much this summer. In this picture I'm finishing up Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Here's my current book list:
1) Angels & Demons- Dan Brown
2) Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother- Amy Chua
3) Outliers- Malcolm Gladwell
4) Freakonomics- Steven D. Levitt
5) The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest- Stieg Larsson
6) Choke- Chuck Palahniuk
7) The Help- Kathryn Stockett

I went to Border's yesterday and it made me sad again. I asked the lady if the sales will get any better as they get closer to closing. She said they don't know when, but they should and they're closing around the 31st of August. I have a lot of memories in Border's. Have I told this story before? When I was younger we would go to Border's every Saturday as a family and we were allowed to pick a book and read while we waited to eat at Olive Garden next door. I am eyeing the Harry Potter boxed set. No joke.
Alyanna is so much taller than me.
Last night I saw Bon Iver at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby. First of all, what a cool venue. Second of all, I worship Justin Vernon. It was a really beautiful show. It was also very relaxing. The audience sat in the cushy velvet chairs for the majority of the performance and only stood up for the encore. Which was great because I wore 4 inch wedges. I wish I had a better picture of my outfit, it was very cute.

This was taken during Hinnom, TX, one of my favorite songs from the new album. Mmm so good. If you ever get a chance you should go see Bon Iver, you will not regret it. I'm so glad I impulsively bought the tickets back in June.

All of my Instagram shots of the shows I've been to suck. I'm certain I could put them all next to each other and you wouldn't be able to tell which band/artist was which. Whatever.
