rethink history...

First off, sorry bloggies for my inexcusably long absence! I've really just been trying to enjoy the rest of my summer spending as much time away from the house/computer/internet as possible. I figured separating myself from the blog for a few days would help :)

What have I been up to lately? Not too much, spending time with my puppers,
Getting a super fun new haircut with my bestie!
Spending lots of time jogging with the puppers with my new kicks...
and the new toy I raved about here.
Running is a breeze with this baby! I am slightly addicted, which I think is a great thing because it's got me running more miles a week than normal!

I've dove into an AMAZING book...
...almost done, but I want it to last so badly I've been taking my time :) If you haven't read it yet, you must, trust me.

And now, for vacation I spent the day reliving history. I am in Williamsburg, VA for a few days. Today we spent travelling through history in downtown Colonial Williamsburg.

A horse at the first plantation we visited totally tried to feel me up. I forgave him :) He did start licking my arm however and actually bit me. His teeth are really odd like two pieces of wood so it just felt like something was clamping down on my arm :D
After there we headed to the Governor's Palace which was about a 30 minute tour with an awesome tour guide who practically told us everything about the building, including where the floorboards came from!
Here's your personal picture tour of the place...
I love the crazy funky colors they used back then! We're talking late 1700's here, and the dining room is lime green and the ballroom is an aqua blue.. the tour guide said that was super common back then. After this tour we searched for somewhere to eat for about an hour (..and about 2 miles of walking in 90+ degrees heat) and gave up on the town for the day. Hungry Kate is NOT a happy camper :) We shall return on Wednesday, tomorrow we're headed to Busch Gardens!!

Hope all of you have been amazing! Enjoy the rest of you Monday!
