What I'm Up To {June}

Hello! Today I'm linking up with Shay and friends for What's Up Wednesday. I always think it's fun to look back on the month and look ahead to the next one while reading recaps from other bloggers. Come join in the fun why don't you?


What We're Eating... so much healthier than last month, woohoo. For those of you who are new here I had gallbladder surgery back in May due to many attacks which were extremely painful. Fatty foods were my nemesis so I stopped eating them. So, you can guess what I did once the gallbladder was gone...yeah I ATE ALL THE THINGS resulting in feeling crappy and gaining weight. To combat the bad cravings, Le Husband and I did a mock WHOLE30 at the beginning of the month and we now both feel so much better. I'm still not as lean as I would like but my body is back to craving WHOLE foods and not processed crap. That is a WIN within itself, woohoo!

What I'm reminiscing about... having a job where I could do whatever I wanted when I wanted. We used to be able to galavant at a the drop of a hat and take a long weekend for kickball events. Now I really have to THINK about vacation and when I plan to take time off. I get very few paid days off now and coordinating them with my boss can be tough. I miss the freedom [and the money] but I know this is just a learning season and soon I'll be on to better things.

What I'm Loving... my new haircut. So fresh! So fun! So blonde! SO Summer!



What We've Been Up To... getting the house together some more. Homeownership and remodeling is a never ending process. We are --this-- close to having the bottom floor set and I can't wait until we can take a week or two off and just live. Everything is coming together nicely and I am super excited to show people the before and after once it gets set.

What I'm Dreading... when my family leaves next week and having cameras in the office. YUCK!

What I'm Working On... studying new releases and getting my choreography memorized. Also trying to find lil bits for the house for decor. Where do you find cute, cheap but not cheap looking pieces?

What I'm Excited About... my family is coming into town for the weekend, even the ARIZONA sister. It has been way too long since we were all together and I'm beyond excited for us all to be whole again.


What I'm Watching/Reading... watching videos for LES MILLS, reading choreography and reading my NASM textbook and notes. I need to rock it with my test and lots of textbook reading is in my future.


What I'm Listening To... LES MILLS music and podcasts. Loving The Accused and getting into other true crime podcast recommend by friends and readers. Anyone have a good podcast they think I should listen to now?


What I'm Doing This Weekend... hanging with my family and playing kickball.

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month... July is bringing family into town, vacation to Michigan for a wedding, a kickball tournament in North Carolina and Le Husband's family coming into town. It is going to be super busy but super duper fun. What have you been up to and what are your plans for July?

I am loving your sassy new cut! It does suck having to be more intentional with vacation planning. My job is fairly flexible but my busiest time is June and July which really sucks when all I want to do is be home and play with my kids and have 4 day weekends! Thanks for linking up with us at Royally Waiting!!

we sometimes find things at Winners but there are a ton of places in our city where movie sets have used furniture/accessories only a couple of times on set and then companies will take them and sell them for dirt cheap. That's how we got our bar stools!

I forgot about kickball, what a great idea! I used to play so much as a kid. I'm telling you, those green shades and your classy sassy new do, cute as a button!

I'm glad you are feeling better after the surgery! It always notice my body responds better when I'm eating healthy, but passing on those fatty foods is SO hard. Your haircut looks fabulous!!

Isnt it crazy how true crime podcasts are so popular. What does that say about our minds? ;)

Still loving that haircut girl! And I hear ya on having to be picky about vacation time. It's so sad that we live in a country that lives to work instead of works to live. We definitely do not get enough personal time :-P

Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis said...

Soo good to get family time in because I know it's so important to you! Love, love the short blonde new cut! I'm sure it'll be way easier to wash and get ready to go.

Elle Sees said...

LOVE the hair--cut and color! So cute for summer!! I am glad you're doing better after the gallbladder surgery. Thank you again for your sweet words on my anxiety/life update post. They really helped!

Yay for Whole30 getting you back on track! I definitely want to start incorporating more whole foods into my diet regularly. And I'm sure you guys are so happy to see all the house progress- I can't wait to see everything once it's done. We've had some luck with home decor stuff at Homegoods, but it's obviously hit or miss & definitely more trendy pieces which can be good or bad I guess.
