First Friday Favorites!

First Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday everyone! Are you excited for the weekend? I know I am. I have a lot of great posts planned for the next couple of weeks, but I kept thinking of these little random things that I wanted to share. They didn’t really have a place in any of my other posts and couldn’t really stand alone as their own posts. Then I realized, I have these little random thoughts pretty frequently. My brain is filled with little thoughts that could be parts of different blog posts.

Fitness Update – Week One

Fitness Update – Week One

So here is my first update after my first official week on the fitness train. All in all it went okay; not great but also not terrible. The week was not the best I could have done, but I am thinking of it as a good start. Overall, the week had ebbs and flows. There were a couple of days where I just felt like a blob (for lack of a better term) and didn’t want to do anything (including cooking). What I decided, is sometimes we have blob days and that is okay. But instead of letting one blob day ruin the whole week, let it mess with that day then bounce back. But lets talk about how things went.

Probably unsurprisingly, I have been off my fitness game since I moved to Seattle. With everything that has been going on in my life (confused? read my last post!), fitness was the last thing on my mind.

Books, Books, Books: What I’ve Been Reading

Books, Books, Books: What I’ve Been Reading

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes, but I don’t always read as much as I would like. Luckily I have been able to make more time for it recently than I have in the past. I should also say, that I have been on a kick lately of reading books that are being turned into or have been turned into movies or TV shows.

One of the best things about the blogging community is that it is truly a community that supports each other. The Liebster Award is place for new blogs to tag and promote each other. I am normally not into the “tag and share” posts that you see on Facebook or whatever, but this an awesome concept that can help everyone 🙂 So thank you Holly for nominating me!

Happy One Year and One Big Change

Happy One Year and One Big Change

It has been exactly one year since I started my blog. Granted, it took me about six months to start posting more regularly and even longer to feel like I am in a good rhythm.  Even now I struggle with balancing my job, the blog, family, friends, and everything else in my life. I started the blog as a creative outlet and I want to make sure it stays that way and does not become a burden. So far, posting irregularly has been what has allowed me to not feel like the blog as a burden. Looking back on the past year, here are a few thoughts and things I have learned…
