July 6, 2016


The year is halfway over. It is flying by. In no time, we'll be packing and unpacking, talking about nasty pumpkin spice lattes and hanging Christmas lights. It's time to enjoy each day and hang on to each awesome summer moment.

Reading through my library stash and trying to catch up on my goal of reading 40 books this year. I'll do some recapping next week.

Eating veggies, like fresh ones. It's incredible. Summer is the best time for food - at least if you're trying to eat healthy.

Drinking water. I'm attempting to over-hydrate while I prepare for a hot weekend in Nashville coming up. I have a feeling there will be lots of cold, cheap beers in my future.

Watching Real Housewives of Orange County and getting insanely excited for my local ladies of Jersey to come back. Also, we just finished the second season of Game of Thrones and still love it.

Planning out the rest of our summer and shocked at how many things are on the calendar. I thought we had a pretty relaxed summer, but the month of July is booked every weekend. Oops. The good news is that it's all fun things happening - I just might need to get 10 hours of sleep every week night.

Enjoying sunsets and sunrises. They have been so incredible lately and I want to make a point to see more sunrises on week days.

Buying as little as possible since we will be packing up all of our belongings in two months and I'm working hard to get rid of things.

Toasting EMMA who is getting married in a month. We are celebrating her this weekend with her bach party and I just booked our tickets to Minnesota in August for her wedding. I'm so excited to spend the weekend with some of my best friends from college. We don't get together too often since we live all over the place, but weddings are the most fun to celebrate and I can't wait to have lots of bubbly this weekend.

Going back to Boston in a few weeks for the first time since we moved here. We are going to revisit the spot we got engaged, see the Twins play the Sox and check out some new places that we haven't seen before.

Smelling Chamomile and Honey which is the flavor of the candle lit in front of me.

Wearing loose fitting clothing after all the awesome crap food I consumed last weekend... and preparing to continue that through this weekend and maybe get myself to the gym when I return.

Wishlisting this fitbit since mine is dying after having it for a few years and also anything from this Etsy shop. I'm a sucker for light up signs.

What's happening with you this month? Are you still recovering from the 4th?

Linking up with AnneJenna and Kristen.


  1. I've been reading a lot as well! I just finished All The Light We Cannot See and wow...just ... wow. Now I'm onto Unbroken and I have a feeling this too, will be a great book.

  2. OMG you're right - the year IS half over! So weird to think of it like that. Oh wow. You just blew my mind!

  4. I hear you about having every weekend booked - argh! Chamomile tea and honey candle? That sounds intriguing!! Hope you're having a good summer!!

  5. yessss ma'am to hydrating!

  6. Summer is full and flying. I am not getting enough sleep on weekends so I'm trying to compensate during the week!

  7. I'm all about hanging on to summer too... watching sunsets at the beach is one of my favorite ways to do it. And eating all the fresh farmers market veggies! Happy summer, and thanks for linking up :)

  8. i agree about summer and eating healthy. it's one of the things i miss about australia, because the seasons are opposite obviously, makes it a lot easier to eat healthy over the holidays. it's much harder here but the food is so good and hard to say no to!
    i have that fitbit and i love it! have a good weekend :)
