Some News and an Outfit!

I have a couple of exciting things to share! Today I reached over 10,000 views on here. I've been waiting for this day for weeks now and it finally came! Yay! Thank you all so much for paying me a visit. :)

The other bit of news is that I made a Facebook page for the blog! I've been meaning to for a while now, but never got around to it until now. To view my page and like it, you can click the badge in my sidebar or just head on over to www.facebook.com/swingthedayaway

I've been pretty busy lately, running around doing all kinds of things! I went to my cousin's wedding, had a picnic for Father's Day, and went to a ska show where I skanked the night away (and ended up with bruised feet).  I've started my giant baking extravaganza for Chris's birthday, and we went to the casino on Saturday to celebrate. I ended up winning $34! Haha.

Beforehand Chris and I and a friend of ours went to practice some archery. Yes, archery. Chris recently bought a bow, so we've been practicing shooting with it! I have to confess that I feel really awesome when holding it. It makes me think of Legolas from Lord of the Rings and Katniss from The Hunger Games! I've wanted to give archery a try ever since high school. I always hoped that we'd learn it in gym class because I'm pretty sure there were rumors of it happening, but it never did. I'll just have to learn on my own! It's pretty easy to shoot. It's actually aiming accurately that is the hard part... Here's what I wore for this arrow and casino-filled day:

We practiced shooting at my old grammar school. It brought back a lot of memories just being around there. It's funny how things seem so big when you're little, but when you go back, you realize they're not as grand as you thought. I felt that way about the playscapes and this big rock that we all used to like to sit on.

[Shirt: Delia's
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: H&M]
The shirt is one that I got at this awesome retail sale that comes around here every month or so. I got it for only 6 bucks! I was excited because I love cats and I love black, white, and red together. It was a win-win. A win-win-WIN, actually, because of the price.

Anyway....thank you all again for reading my ramblings and helping me reach over 10,000 views! :D There's still so much more in store for me this summer. I have lots of travel goals and things I want to see before the season's over, plus all kinds of fun picnics and parties and events. I really can't believe it's almost July. I feel like this summer is going to just fly by! At least it'll be a good one. :)


  1. Congrats!!!!! An awesome accomplishment!!!! :-) I liked your facebook page! I love archery, but haven't fired an arrow since high school! Busy busy busy!!!! I want that shirt!!!!! It's too cute!!!! :-)
