I am back. Last time we talked, I was about to get down and dirty with the blogging. That was, what, almost a week ago? Here's what's been going on.
- I finished my 10 week intensive German course, which means I have finally and officially finished my degree!
- I spent a week being jobless, and spent it catching up with family, getting a couple super temporary part time positions, and doing some Dankbar stuff.
- Had a fantastic post-graduation weekend that I'd been looking forward to for months.
- Attended the Great Minnesota Get Together
And so many other things that I am so grateful to have experienced and so excited to share with you. The end of my summer research program work experience, volunteering with the Minnesota Fringe Festival, and so many other experiences have happened and it's so much to talk about, I don't know where to start.
I'm way behind, I know, but forgive me. Fall is bringing in a wave of new-ness for me, so fresh starts are on their way!

Pat's Tap on Nicollet has been on Nathan's list for awhile. A couple weeks ago, I was dying for some patio time and he was dying to try Pat's, so off we went. It had a great patio, great food, great drinks... I did not regret our decision at all.
After we finished dinner outside, it was in to the building we went. Dimly lit, the place was adorned in the most fantastic wallpaper, and a plethora of sports and bar-themed memorabilia. We headed into the back and played a couple rounds of Skee-Ball (I dominated, for once), and darts (also dominated). It was only a quarter to play Skee-Ball or Darts, so we had plenty of fun off of a couple bucks.
I highly recommend going here if you get the chance - who doesn't love Pat?

Patterned shorts, a chambray popover, cute sandals, a hair tie, and a watch. To be honest, I hadn't even realized this was my typical outfit until a friend called me out on it - "typical Taylor, running shorts, but cute everything else". HA! If it's really hot out, I swap out the chambray for a racerback tank top (similar here and here). I have the shorts pictured above in black and white - I cannot get enough of them. I found them in Florida at a Nike Factory, and I kick myself that I didn't buy more pairs. They're a beach short, so they aren't as loose or runner-ish looking. Let's not kid though...I'd wear these Nike shorts too.
Any doubts that this does't work? (Trust me, I've had them, my sisters tease me all the time.) Remember that anything one wears works, as long as you've got the confidence to go with it.
What's your summer go to?
