Happy Sunday, friends!

I hope you all had a fantastic week. Things are * finally * starting to settle down over here, but I don’t even want to finish that thought, because it always seems that there is never a dull moment in this household!

TBH, I haven’t been on top of my game for posting cute outfits to my blog or Instagram. This is mostly due to the fact that I leave for work when the sun rises, and come home after dark! So, I don’t have a great variety of “on-the-go”outfits to roundup today, but I thought I’d also throw in a life lately update, as it’s been since….uh, MAY?!!!! that I posted one!

If we were to grab a cup of coffee together, I’d share with you…

  • How excited I am to get our wedding photos back! We should be getting a sneak peak any day now, and the full set in two weeks! Gah! (Stay tuned for a blog post!)
  • How weird it is that I have a new last name. I’m still totally not used to it! The other day I was signing paperwork, and I accidentally used my old last name. Oops!
  • How exhausted I have been as of lately. I’ll admit, it feels amazing right now to be snuggled on my couch next to my pup with a cup of coffee, blogging. I haven’t been able to do this lately!
  • How happy I am for my friends who recently tied the knot. I was in a wedding last weekend. It is so beautiful to be able to witness two people you love commit to one another for life!
  • How much I’m loving my new school counseling job. It’s challenging work, but I’m so grateful for the opportunity!
  • Apparently, Shadow, my 11 month old Golden Retriever, is getting fat. LOL. He recently had a vet appointment and we were told that he is “developing a few rolls.” This is mostly my fault because I’ve been letting him steal some table scraps. I just can’t say no to those big brown puppy eyes! I promise I’ll include him on the blog soon, he is way too cute not to share.
  • How excited I am to be finished with my Master’s program THIS DECEMBER!!!

Sweater: Apricot Lane | Jeans: Pacsun (this wash is my FAVORITE)

Here are some of my recent goals…

  • Get back into eating healthy and working out. Since the wedding, I’ve totally been embracing the “I-dont-have-to-fit-in-a-wedding-dress-anymore” lifestyle. 😀
  • Get regular sleep each night. 6 hours is not cutting it!
  • Go for a walk every single day, even if it’s only for 5 minutes! This is not a physical goal for staying in shape, but a goal to get more fresh air!
  • Find my love for cooking again. Yesterday, I made maple glazed sausage pigs-in-a-blanket for my sister-in-law’s Halloween party, and they were delicious! I forgot how much I enjoy the creative process of trying new recipes on Pinterest! (Here is the recipe for the sausages, by the way!)
  • Get back into blogging regularly – but I’m not going to break my back to meet this goal, if my week is too busy with school and work.
