Soaking Up the Florida Sunshine

I have been doing a great job lately with not cramming so much into the weekends and taking the time to relax and unwind from the hectic work week. This is a huge deal for me because I have always been the type of person to go go go and plan something for every spare minute I have! On Saturday, we had absolutely beautiful weather: mid-seventies, sunny and breezy. So, Jeff and I took advantage of it and went out to the beach for a relaxing morning. We have lots of nearby beaches but we chose to go to Jetty Park this time. Jetty Park is a great spot because they have parking, a pier to fish off of and watch the cruise ships go […]

What’s Up Wednesday {April 2016}

What I’m Eating This Week…BBQ, Donuts, Italian, French Toast Muffins, Dippin Dots…not all at the same time, but still, I’ve been awful lately… What I’m Reminiscing About…The Beach. I have yet to spend a day at the beach this year and it’s only an hour away. I need a nice relaxing day out there! What I’m Loving…fresh air. I’ve started taking my lunch outside at work and reading while I eat instead of the usual lunch at my desk. I’ve also started taking the dogs on more walks after work. The fresh air and sunshine does wonders for my mood. What I’ve Been Up To…family celebrations – we’ve had birthdays, our engagement party (more on that next Wednesday!) and just lots of fun family togetherness […]

Back in Action

Well hello there! I took a little break from blogging over the last couple of weeks. I am having lots of anxiety this month and was just feeling uninspired. I never want this space to be something that I have to do or another task on my to-do list. I never plan on becoming a full-time blogger, not that I don’t think it’s an awesome career for those who quit their job to blog. I think that’s great! But for me this is an outlet and a hobby. And sometimes you need to take a little break from your creative hobbies to recharge and come back with a fresh mind. Part of the reason I’ve had so much anxiety lately is because I’ve been craving […]

Weekending: Spring is here!

Happy Spring! It’s officially here but we woke up to a cold front! I was very surprised. That didn’t stop the warm weather and bright colors this weekend though! My weekend had a little bit of everything, combined with a lot of food 🙂 Friday night, I went out with one of my best friends for Mexican than headed back to her place to help her pack. I am so sad because she moved this weekend. Not too far, about 30 minutes, but she is no longer right around the corner. Adulting really sucks when your friends all start buying houses and movies to the suburbs. Boo. Saturday was a rainy day. Jeff and I had TooJays for breakfast (I love TooJays!) and then did […]

Friday Favorites – March Edition

Happy Friday! I can’t believe we are almost halfway through March…what is going on!? Is time on the fast forward Snapchat filter or something??? Anyhoo, here are a few of my favorite things from this week… One//My first favorite is JOJO IS THE NEXT BACHELORETTE!! My heart broke for her during the finale (and I still think Ben made the wrong choice and Lauren is boring) but I’m so excited to watch her next season. I’m interested to see how her crazy brothers act this time around…I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for The Bachelorette. #TeamJojo Two//I had the opportunity to guest post for two amazing ladies this week! Go check out my post on all the things I love about living in […]

Weekending: Spring is here!

Well, we sprang forward this weekend so I’m sure we are all needing extra coffee this Monday morning! I’m happy Spring is officially here though, and we had the warm weather to prove it all weekend! My family had our first BBQ of the year on Saturday to celebrate a big promotion for my Stepdad – I love any reason to get the family together, eat yummy BBQ and play some yard games! Jeff and I are the reigning corn hole champs! Sunday was a lazy day for me, after a really early morning volunteering Saturday morning and the BBQ for the rest of the day, I was drained. So, I caught up on a bunch of episodes of The Voice. It’s looking like such a good […]
