Ice cream on the last night of the summer (Brian also returned to school this week)
2. Rory and I went to NCT to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Sunday afternoon. Everything NCT is quality and Joseph was no exception (although this is kind of an oddball musical).
3. We're all in for Olympic watching beginning this evening. I even looked up a few Brazilian recipes (and promptly decided on the easiest one) for supper tonight. Only thing that would make the Olympics better is if they would have happened prior to the start of school. I feel like we could have really taken advantage of 24-hour coverage and seriously camped out for the duration if there weren't this silly thing called school to contend with.
4. I found out this week that I was chosen for the launch team of a book I have been waiting to read for MONTHS. More on this this later, but let's just say I pre-ordered this book back in February (that's how much I was looking forward to reading it) and I have linked the author here many, many times.
5. I think calling this crafty might be pushing the definition of crafty just a bit, but I took Rory to our brand new Michael's store and bought embroidery thread to make friendship bracelets. It's pretty much the only crafty thing I remember doing successfully as a child (the sewing and embroidery were both complete disasters despite my mom's attempt to teach us every summer).
Bonus: When I asked Rory how her first day of school was, she replied that her teacher was "you know, real happy."
