Confessions of a Shopaholic

Lately I’ve been a bit of a Shopaholic. I almost never online shop but I’ve been doing a little of that and spending some time at the mall and outlets. I think it’s just the transition into summer that makes me want to refresh my wardrobe and get some things we’ve needed for the house. Here’s some of my recent purchases that I don’t regret buying! Picked up this adorable Wanderlust Watch on sale from Happy Trunk. I got the tan band. Treated myself to a new Kate Spade purse and am absolutely loving the color and pattern for summer. I haven’t worn non-skinny jeans in years but I’m happy that the flared style is back in. I got a few really comfy pairs from […]

What’s New With Me

Today, I’m linking up with Kristen and Gretchen for What’s New! I’ve been doing less Weekending posts because they are a little tough to get together on Sunday nights and honestly, not all of my weekends are super exciting. I still love Weekending posts and plan on doing them when something special is going on but I love the idea of this What’s New linkup as a monthly check-in so I plan on making it a regular thing! Here’s what I was up to last month: Celebrated my favorite Moms on Mother’s Day! Jeff has been working a ton and we didn’t have many nights off together so we took advantage of some date nights which mostly consisted of watching movies. We tried out our local […]

Confessional Thursday

It’s time for a good ole’ round of confessions! I confess… There are so many changes among my friends right now, everyone is having babies and moving to the suburbs or far away for work. I’m not ready for it all! I don’t want to adult and I don’t want them to either! 🙁 I’ve been a bad fur mama lately…work schedules have been intense and the pups are going stir crazy having much more time home alone. I’ve been leaving them out in the yard longer when I’m home at night but discovered today that they dug a hole under the fence to the neighbor’s yard….oops. Jeff only found this out when he couldn’t find Kona and just her nose was sticking out from […]

St. Patrick’s Day in College vs. Today

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today is one of those days that makes me miss college. A couple of years ago, this holiday was great fun but today it’s really just a Thursday. I may get festive and have an Irish themed dinner but that will probably be the extent of it. So it got me thinking about St. Patrick’s Day in college vs. St. Patrick’s Day in the real world… In college I would definitely dress the part – Everyone Loves An Irish Girl via GIPHY Today – Busy thinking about work when I got ready so I forgot to wear green…please don’t pinch me. via GIPHY In college I would probably stay out all night, and sleep the whole next day. via GIPHY Today my normal […]

{Thursday Thoughts} My Whole30 Experience

So, I had planned on sharing my Whole30 Week 1 Diary today but I’m already off the program. It was not my jam.  Here’s how it went: Day 1 – Tuesday Breakfast – Banana and black coffee. *Forgot to boil eggs the night before, big fail! A banana was the only thing I could quickly grab and get out the door before work. We have a Nature’s Table but a fruit cup was the only Whole30 approved thing they have. STARVING until lunch. Lunch – Tuna tossed with salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar over salad with olives and a whole avocado. This was actually really delicious. 1:30pm – Finished lunch and  still starving!! By 2:15 was feeling much better. I think the food […]

{Thursday Thoughts} What’s New…

I’m linking up with Kristen and Gretchen to share what’s new! Lately, I’ve been having a bit of bloggers writers block 🙁 I have lots of post ideas and drafts but can’t seem to find the motivation to finish any. I think I need to implement a serious writing routine to get the creative juices flowing. I also think of a million and one post ideas in the shower and can’t seem to remember any when I get out! Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me? I’m only on Day 3 of my Whole30 and I messed up! I accidentally ate corn in a vegetable medley for dinner last night, completely forgetting that it’s a grain not a vegetable, and I […]
