-It’s almost August guys and the triple digits are here! It’s so cold inside Equinox that I actually love it when I step outside. Can you believe I only have two more weeks there!?

-I’ve started putting some ideas together and meeting with folks at my new school, and I’m getting so anxious to get started!

-I’m back into the swing of healthy eating, and loving summer fruits, but I still feel like I’m carrying around 5 lbs of Turkey weight. And I don’t mean the bird.

-When does Mad Men return? I miss Don.

-I need a real alarm clock that’s pretty. Any recs.?

-Remember when I mentioned finding a new shampoo in this post? I got a sample at my last hair cut appointment and I think this may be the one. It smells soo good!
Happy weekend eve.

How’s it going out there?

Matt and I had a wonderful anniversary celebration – we had dinner at the famous Fearings (out of this world) and the enjoyed the top layer of our wedding cake afterwards.

It was a little beat up from riding to Texas in a cooler for 3 days, but it somehow survived. I think we were too full to appreciate it right after dinner, but boy did in taste good the next day!

This week has been a good one – I picked up an extra shift at work and attempted a few new recipes to pack for lunches. And I made more banana bread because the muffins make the most incredible snack with nut butter.

Last night, Matt and I went to see Belle – it was a beautiful movie! It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good love story and I really enjoyed it. Any other good ones? I’d def. like to see Don Draper in a different role….

And now it’s time for another weekend. I don’t have a thing planned and I like it that way.

-Saturday is my one year anniversary! It’s been a wonderful year of marriage:) I just keep thinking about all the things that were happening at this time last year and I wish I could relive it all. At least some of this is still in the freezer!!!!!

-To celebrate, we’re combining our wedding anniversary with Matt’s 30th and taking a big trip!

-I have enough yoga classes under my belt now that I’m starting to relax and really enjoy it. I get giddy on Thursdays just thinking about going. I never thought I’d say that!!

-I finally got around to starting a new book! I go through periods of tv and novels and I know reading is a better activity before bedtime.

-Currently, my favorite lunch entree: corn tortillas slathered in avocado with scrambled eggs topped with cilantro and hot sauce. Gosh I love eating.

Can someone tell me how it’s the weekend again? I never remember time moving this fast.

Night!

How’s it going out there?

I’m pumped for a long weekend. Matt has Monday off, and he’s been working like crazy, so I know he deserves a break. I have Monday off too, although I don’t really think I have earned a holiday working part-time:) We’re sticking around here and planning to check out Fort Worth on Saturday. A stay-cation of sorts. All I’m craving is a good burger.

I haven’t been blogging much because there really isn’t much going on here! I feel so at peace now knowing that I have a job, and I’ve just been loving life. I’m appreciating the free time while I have it, by reading novels, doing week night activities, taking long walks, and just enjoying quiet time at home. I’ve been meaning to do more cooking too, but it’s just too hot to turn the oven on! I made this coconut flour banana bread last week (well muffins) and love it warmed up with almond butter. I can’t get enough nut butter these days – I currently have four jars going.

I’m off to the grocery store (one of my favorite parts of the week). I hope yall have a fantastic Memorial Day and take a moment to remember those soldiers!!

-I loved Caitlin’s post on challenging your own personal narrative – surrounding yourself with positivity is one of the most important pieces of advice out there, and it’s been essential for me this year. Plus, looking on the bright side of things and associating yourself with positive people might be a sign of emotional intelligence!

-I’ve started marking overnight oatmeal to take with me to work and it’s such a nice morning treat. I’d forgotten how much I love it.

-I haven’t finished it yet, but I’d definitely recommend this book! It’s the story of girl [around my age] who hikes the Pacific Coast Trail alone in an attempt to find herself.

-Speaking of mental and physical challenges, I’m finally doing yoga. I haven’t loved any class I’ve taken in the past, but now that I have access to awesome classes, I’m trying to go consistently. I think my bootcamps and strength training classes have helped prepare me physically, but I need to work on the mental side! I’m usually so concerned about my [lack of] flexibility, getting poses right, and keeping up with the class, that my mind is overwhelmed with thoughts.

-I don’t distinctly remember leaves falling off trees here in the fall, but they must have because there is fresh green everywhere! Dare I say Dallas looks lush?

Happy weekend eve!
