Middle of June!

Alrighty, well clearly May was a flop for my blogging about Marriage. Cool. I was super excited about that challenge and then bombed it lol. June really has not turned out much better. I feel like these past two weeks in June have been a whirlwind. I have been super busy and trying to get little things done here and there during the times I am not working. Crazy crazy crazy! And then I just celebrated my birthday! That was way fun. Got to share it with my amazing husband who made me feel extremely special on my day and then had some wonderful friends who came over and celebrated as well! It was sweet! 

I think since I am halfway into the month of June, I am going to pass on this months challenge. I will still blog very consistently (hopefully). But we will resume the monthly challenges in July with the next photo challenge! Can’t wait to pull out my camera and shoot and share some pictures! 

I am kind of on a creative/eating well/eating healthy kick right now. After Matt moved out my front room opened up and now I have space really get started on quilting or making the couple of pieces of clothing I have been wanting to make or just some other projects I have wanted to do for the house. I have also been reading It Start With Food by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig. It is just talking about how foods affect you and how whole foods are much better for a balance in all areas of your body. It is a really cool read and something I have really been looking in to. 

Anyway, those are my thoughts and rambles for the day!

See ya!

Monday: Weekend Update!

This past weekend was my birthday weekend! It was on Friday and my hubby had the whole day planned out. He is amazing! First he let me sleep in, which was much appreciated. 

Then we made our way to Pittsburgh. I love the city of Pittsburgh. If we were not moving to Denver here in just over two weeks, I would make us move closer to Pittsburgh. First of all, it is just a great city and it is really beautiful if you like slightly run down but making a come back kind of places. But anyway, we went to Pittsburgh to go to our favorite climbing gym. It has this massive bouldering area which is exactly the type of climbing that we love. We spent several hours in there just climbing to our hearts content. We definitely realized that we are not nearly as good of climbers as we thought. I mean we knew we were not great but I at least felt like I could be better. We are hoping that once we move to Denver, we can find a great gym to get involved in. We want to climb on a much more regular basis. 

After we were exhausted enough from climbing, we went closer to the heart of Pittsburgh and hit up the REI store and Cheesecake factory there. I could not help but being giddy while I was walking through REI because I know that I will be working there in three weeks! So excited! Just knowing that I will be working in an environment that I actually like and knowing that I get those pro deals just makes me super super excited! 
Then we hit up the Cheesecake Factory. MMMMMMM That place has delicious food. I had their chicken parm sandwich. So yummy! Yay! Then I had the Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple cheesecake. Dude, it has butterfingers and reese’s in it. What is there not to love about that cheesecake?! 

After that, he surprised me with a trip to the Drive-in to see Madagascar 3 and Snow White and the Huntsman. Oh my word. So awesome! I love the drive-in and he could not have picked a better ending to the night! Both movies were awesome! 

Overall, I could not have had a better Birthday date day with my hubby! That led in to the rest of the weekend which was work work work work. 

Well, I am off to eat and continue packing up my house! Yay moving!

See ya!

Weekend Update: Tara Turns 9!

This weekend my littlest sister turned 9 years old!!! It is so hard to believe that she is growing up this fast. I feel like just yesterday she was super tiny. Anyway, I was not able to be home for her birthday, but I was up the week before so I gave her a present then. I gave her a call on her birthday and as is to be expected she was all kinds of goofy and slightly hyper because it was her birthday. She says I call her crazy all the time but it is because she makes some ridiculous comments on a regular basis. She is basically a mini me except most of the time she does not have any inhibitions like I do. She isn’t afraid to be herself and I love that about her. I know she is only 9 and still has to go through high school, but I have a feeling she will keep her individual identity. I love her to pieces!

In other weekend news, I had the day off on Friday and we went climbing! That was wonderful and yet totally made us realize how much we sucked after not climbing for a while. Saturday, I was not feeling good at all so I ended up calling off of work. I had a killer migraine plus snot was my best friend. I think it was my body telling me I needed to just chill out and take a break because I have just been going going going for weeks. Graduation here I come! Sunday, I felt better so that two day break must’ve been just what I needed. Overall, not a half bad weekend. But here we are, off to another week. 

Happy Monday!
See ya!
