I feel like it's been for-eh-ver since I last posted. A lot of life-ing going on around here, ya know? So let me tell you a bit about what I'm up to in these here parts... in case you were wondering. ;)
Watching: Hell on Wheels on Netflix (Cullen Bohanan, I DO declare! *fans herself to stop from passing out.) & finales for everything. SYTYCD. AGT. ANW (that one's American Ninja Warrior.. I just threw in initials because it felt right.) & BB (Big Brother) winds up soon too. (too much TV! don't judge me!)
Eating: The most healthy foods on planet Earth, so help me baby Jesus. I could not be more healthy and conscious of what is going into my body if I tried! Well I am trying, super hard.
Doing: The Whole 30. one. day. at a time. (Day 11 here!)
Wanting: A really great pair of go-to jeans. Like ones that fit just perfectly and can go with a zillion outfits. and don't cause muffin top. and don't cost a small fortune (lets be real, if they aren't on a Target sale rack I'll never find them.) Oh! and a pair of kick @$$ boots. well, one in black and also in brown. (I probably won't buy any of these things. #frugalforlife)
Buying: Canvases and paints. (yes!) and all of the fruits and vegetables. literally. every single one of them. If you have scurvy you should come to my house, I could probably help you out.
Reading: The Rosie Effect. (sequel to The Rosie Project. one of the best books ever!) (I'm pretty worried about Don. He seems like he's getting himself into a lot of trouble.)(Note: I might be a little to invested in the characters of books I read.)
Making: Some projects outside of the scrapbook realm. (gasp. I have other abilities and passions! I forgot about that!)
Realizing: I totes met the guy who invented the compact disc when I was a kid. It's so random but it dawned on me today that it was possible and I did some internet-ing and found out it's true. He came to our classroom and held up the disc and explained that "this one disc will hold an entire album of music! a computer program! the possibilities are endless!" I remember taking home a disc and my stepdad tapping it on the counter, flipping it over and saying, "huh, I don't get it." (also I felt kinda old telling my 13 year old this... life before discs. I am a dinosaur.)
Planning: To decorate our house. finally! After almost a year of living here I can finally say I'm ready, and I want to do it like, all at once, because I have all of these ideas and they will be SO cool if I can just magically find all of the stuff I want and then have the money to pay for them! It seems totally realistic and doable! *
So that's a little bit more than you probably cared about. Thanks for reading it, though!
So, lets talk Whole 30... wait. actually, I think it really deserves it's own post. Like, how and why even do I think 30 full days of deprivation is a good idea?? (PS-it's not really deprivation. I promise. Although, I am feeling very deprived of my Slurpees and Beer-ritas! *grumbles and feels sorry for self.) I'll be back soon to share all about it, since I'm pretttty sure I won't quit. *says with only a tiny bit of confidence.
