our rules for summer



1.
first and foremost,
ignore the sun.
no waking mom up before 7am.
*sleeping in til 9 is preferable.

2.
consume excessive amounts of cantaloupe, watermelon,
grapes and deliciously large/sweet costco strawberries.
daily fruit smoothies are also mandatory.

3.
protect the ever-so dominate redhead/dixon fair skin gene.
wear sunscreen at. all. times.

4.
participate in outdoor exercise daily.
*RIP treadmill belt. {tears!}

5.
resist the urge to open every blind in the house.
because having money/staying cool is more important than
beautiful natural light flowing into my soul every morning.
[i guess.]

6.
swim, run through the sprinklers and soak up the sun.
a lot.

7.
do whatever the heck we wanna do.
start projects & finish 'em.
learn, read, color, play, create.

8.
hang out.
enjoy life.
live in the moment.
smile like you mean it.
don't worry, be happy.
hakuna matata.
etc.

9.
blast the itunes whilst performing our morning chores.

10.
consistent homemade pedicures.
for fun.

11.
convince the world that they need
to tint their hot vehicle at aces auto glass.
{awesome prices, great work....just sayin'.}

12.
participate in
quiet time/nap time everyday.
*because it's amazing.

I like those rules. We are sitting in our dining room eating breakfast with the shutters closed, which is killing me, but I know is for the greater good. Sigh.
