Currently: It has been a rough week. I’m stressed, exhausted, and frustrated. Between Magnolia getting sick again, a heavy workload, and an out of wack routine, I’m just ready for the week to be over. Tonight I worked late and then decided last minute to get an OrangeTheory workout in since Neal was already home with Magnolia. Traffic was horrible, but thankfully I made it to class on time.
The OrangeTheory workout was amazing. It started out with a Run/Row and then ended with three 5-minute weight circuits with heavy weight. I loved it! Afterwards I headed over to Cava for dinner. I turned off my phone and ate dinner in the restaurant by myself. It was nice to sit in peace, to have some time to think, and to be mindful. I needed it.
We have a pretty busy weekend ahead of us, but thankfully I am off work tomorrow. After long nights, I’m grateful to have a day off and to be able to get some things done around the house.
Current Confession: I’ve had moments lately where I’ve really missed my 20’s. Obviously I love my life and I’m grateful for my family, but there are some days where I just miss the freedom that came with being single. I miss working late, going out with friends after work, getting my workouts in whenever I wanted, living in Virginia, enjoying restaurants all over the city, traveling a ton, and not living in my car 3 hours a day for my commute. I didn’t go through the “OMG I’m 30” phase a few years ago, but I had also just had a baby and 30 felt right. As 32 gets closer… all the feels! I’m not freaking out and I’m not depressed about it, but I’m not liking the fact that I’m getting older and losing more and more of my freedom/time.
Current Purchase: I’ve bought a few new tops at Kohl’s and am still loving Lularoe! The Amelia, Irma, and Classic T are my favorites. I have a few leggings, but I just don’t wear leggings often.
Current Book of the Month: I made the mistake of starting 3 books over the past few weeks, so I’m cranking through each of them at different rates. I’m loving all three though!!
Current Lunch: I’ve seen the Wasa Crackers on Instagram and was excited to try them out myself. The crackers are really yummy and I’ve enjoyed building sandwiches on them this week. Yesterday I added sliced tomato and avocado to the cheese and lunch meat. It was amazing!
Current Tune: Pandora reminded me today how much I love Gavin DeGraw and Marc Broussard! Such amazing arts and I love them.
Current Shows: What happened to HTGAWM? Man! Why did it end so early? I will say though, Grey’s Anatomy has been ON POINT this season!! It’s like the old Grey’s Anatomy and I’m glad it’s back!
Current Drink: Y’all know I’m obsessed with cold-pressed juices. I also LOVE Garden of Flavor, so I was thrilled to see their new Cold-Pressed Energy drinks. The drinks are a combination of cold-pressed juice, probiotics, and Guayusa. The caffeine (100 mg/bottle) comes from Ecuadorian Guayusa, a tree leaf that offers a slow release/metabolizing caffeine so that you have sustained, long lasting energy without the highs and lows typically found with energy drinks. The drinks tasted like fruit flavored iced tea and are really amazing! I’ve really enjoyed them!
Current Holy Moly: How is Magnolia almost 20 months old? I just can’t believe she’ll be 2 in September. Craziness…. OH!! And I haven’t had coffee in 10 months. Now that’s craziness!
Currently Looking Forward To: Having tomorrow off, getting my hair done Saturday, and seeing some of my favorite people in the world on Sunday. OH!!! And I CAN NOT WAIT for my sister to move to PA this summer to start grad school at Penn State! I can’t wait for her to be closer.
