After my long hiatus from the blog world, I’ve decided to check in today & play catch up.
1. Weekend Re-cap: Parents Visit
See, my parents are probably the best parents in the entire world, so anytime I get to see them, I’m a very happy daughter. I also love when they visit because it gives me an excuse to do something new & exciting, or to actually go into the city. We did all of the above this past weekend.
First up: We went to a local farm and picked our own fresh blueberries. I’ve never picked my own fruit before – but I’ve been dying to go here and try it. It was awesome. I’ve never seen so many blueberries in my life. We ended up picking 4 pounds of berries. And since they’re straight off the vine, they tasted perfect. Nothing like a perfect blueberry (or 4 pounds of perfect blueberries)
Overall, we had a great time just wandering around, seeing the sights, enjoying food, drink, and the company. I wish weekends would last forever.
2. I finally gave in & bought New Rules of Lifting for Women
Since Steve had gift cards to Barnes & Nobles that he’s been neglecting for the past 4 years, I decided to steal them for myself and buy this book that’s taking over the blog world. (Check out Tara’s, Kelly’s, Meghann’s or Christy’s blogs for evidence), and I’m already fascinated. I actually got off to a late start this morning because I couldn’t put it down. I think I’m going to take some “before” photos & post them right before I start this program. I better look like a damn goddess when it’s over.
3. My life is chaotic.
I wanted to briefly elaborate on my last post about being MIA and trying to get my life in order… but I don’t want to be too specific because there’s no use in making plans that don’t end up working out. Here’s some insight. My fabulous husband is currently in a role that will eventually require us to move. Where to? No idea. When? Eventually. I’m totally on-board with moving, especially because I hate the cold and I hate snow and I want to move south at some point in my life. With that said, I know that I also want to go back to school at some point. This would be easy enough since I’ve already taken my GRE’s and I’ve done enough research to know what courses are required for the degree I’m seeking. However, it would be incredibly pointless for me to apply to schools, start classes, and then have to move either mid-semester or just in the middle of the program. I don’t want to deal with transferring credits or dropping out or any of that jazz. So I have no idea what to do.
4. Working out keeps me sane.
Even though I haven’t blogged about it, I’ve been keeping up with my work-outs. Everyone has their own coping mechanism for stress… luckily mine is exercise. I think I’d legit go insane without working out.
