What I’m eating this week…
I’m literally eating my breakfast: peach non-fat Greek yogurt, roasted pistachios, & mini dark chocolate chips. This is hands down my favorite breakfast on a weekday. I know a lot of people aren’t into yogurt, but it helps keep my gut balanced. I can tell a difference within 3 days if I don’t eat yogurt.
I’m also drinking a NingXia Red, by far one of my very favorite Young Living products.
What I’m reminiscing about…
All these Hallmark movies are making me wish for a vacation, a prince, or Christmas.
What I’m loving…
I just had microdermabrasion for the first time a couple weeks ago. I wish I could do it every week! I loved it. My facialist also gives the best facial massages.
What I’ve been up to…
This summer has been crazy busy! I need a summer to relax from my summer.
June 10: car wreck – I wasn’t hurt, but my car sure was
June 15 – 24: dog/house sat
June 28 – July 8: overnight babysat for a 2yo & 4 yo, they were so good but I don’t know how single parents do it! I’m in awe of you.
July 10 -12: dog/house sat
July 17: FINALLY got my car back from being fixed
July 25 – 28: dog/house sit
August 2: dog/house sit
August 3 – 12: vacation!
Needless to say, there hasn’t been a lot of nights sleeping in my own bed.
What I’m dreading…
I’m dreading the school traffic coming back in a few weeks. It easily adds 20 minutes to my commute in the morning. 😦
What I’m working on…
I’ve recently been getting into essential oils, I think I mentioned that in May. With that said, I follow the hashtags, #YoungLiving & #essentialoils, on Instagram & I get TONS of oil ideas for diffuser blends, perfume blends, household cleaners, body butters, stain removers, body wash…you name it. So, I’m creating a recipe book so I can just keep them all in one place instead of taking a screenshot with my phone & having to scroll through 87,000 pictures to get to a recipe.
I’m also slowly switching over from toxic household items to non-toxic. I’ve already gotten rid of all my candles, they are SOOOOOO bad for you…full of carcinogens. I’ve switched to Young Living’s Thieves laundry detergent – LOVE! I’ll also never buy bug spray, roach killer, or Goo-Gone again…there’s an oil for that!
What I’m excited about…
I’m so excited about going to visit my friend Maureen in Park City, Utah! I can’t wait to be in 70-80 degree weather! I’m flying up, & then we are driving back together. Y’all, I splurged & upgraded myself to first class! Who am I?
Do you think it will be like this?
What I’m watching/reading…
I’ve obviously been watching Hallmark’s Christmas in July movies, duh.
Is anyone watching The Bachelorette? I am not loving it, so much so that I’m not even blogging this season. This is a case where we know more than the Lead at this point. I hate that I know that ABC allowed a convicted sexual predator on Becca’s season & a guy, who is the favorite, that is clearly a racist, homophobic, misogynistic, gross guy. It’s really bumming me out. I feel like they are making a fool of Becca once again. They already did her dirty in Arie’s season by filming the worst breakup of all time. Okay – off my soap box.
I’ve been reading here & there, not as much as I normally do. I’ve been studying for my Project Management certification, so the last thing I want to do is pick up another book. But I did read a couple of quick, easy, & cheesy romance novels recently.
The Love by Numbers series from Sarah McLean was fantastic! I also really enjoyed Finding Mr. Wrong by AM Madden & Joanne Schwehm – it was very Bachelor-esqe.
What I’m listening to…
I’ve moved on from Kacey Musgraves & am now obsessed with Lucie Silvas.

What I’m wearing…
I have been living in my BP & Caslon tees from Nordstrom.
What I’m doing this weekend…
This weekend I’m going to the Astros game!
What I’m looking forward to next month…
Did I mention I was going on vacation???
What else is new…
Work has been crazy busy, I’m spear heading a new initiative that is supposed to officially kick-off tomorrow.
Bonus: What is my favorite thing I’ve done this summer…
My favorite thing about this summer has been the rain. Yes, it is still hot in Houston, but it has really helped keep things to a manageable heat. Knock on wood. I’m sure my answer will be different in a couple weeks.
Until next time.
