Ya know what show you all should start binge watching stat? Frankie & Grace! It's about two old ladies...being awesome? Ha, I don't know how to better describe it, but it's seriously hilarious! My sister and I watched the entire first season last week and were seriously cracking up the whole time! I swear the whole time we were like, "Oh my gosh, you're SO Grace and I'm SO Frankie!" Haha, it was the best! So yeah, when you're looking for something to watch next, watch that!!! Also, converse, guys. I'd been DYING for a pair for AGES but I just couldn't get myself to commit to spending the $50. (Yeah, yeah, I'm cheap;) Anyway, with my new job and all, I figured, "what the hay, I ain'ts broke no more, might as well." I'm sooo glad I finally got 'em because I'm no joke wearing them pretty much every day! They go with errrthang! Especially polka-dot dresses and red lippies! Speaking of polka-dot dresses, this is another thrifted find so I unfortunately don't have an exact link for you guys but I have linked a few REALLY similar options down below!
Soooo, how were all of your Memorial Days? I spent mine hiking, and then grillin' with da fam. Chill, relaxed, chilaxed. ;) Anyway, I'm totally boring today. I have absolutely nothing to say. Nothing. You're all probably quitting reading this as each boring sentence progresses, and I don't blame you. Anyway, in other only slightly more entertaining topics, I finished my cleanse! YAY! I'm going to try and keep up my clean eating, though. I'm seriously going to clean up my lifestyle. Go to bed early, wake up at the crack of dawn, eat whole clean foods, cut the processed snacks, and drink a crazy ton of water!!
Utah has continued to be cloudy, rainy, and just whack. The good thing about it, though, is that it means I get to be creative. Bi-polar weather means bi-polar outfit! Shorts+a shrug! Also, because I'm boring today my mind is blank and that's all I have to say. So yeah.
I know I already announced this about a month ago on Instagram, but I
only just realized that I hadn't formally announced it on here, so guess
what? I'm announcing it now. Heehee. Two of my first and dearest
blogging friends, Gentri and Lauren, started an Online Health &
Wellness Magazine called Foundation. Foundation Magazine is all about
helping you reach your full potential and I was lucky enough to be asked
to be a spiritual contributor. I was so elated when Gentri first asked
me because being a spiritual contributor for Foundation has given me the
perfect avenue to share my spiritual and more heartfelt thoughts that I
haven't always felt as able to share on this space here. These photos are just a
small preview from my latest post on pressing forward with faith, which I hope you'll
all take a moment to read, here. And if you're feeling really spiritual, also take a moment to read my first ever post, on patience, here. Comment with your thoughts, explore all of the site, and most of all enjoy!
This last month I ate like C-R-A-P, crap. I'm usually pretty good at reigning it in and trying to be sure I get enough nutrients but these last couple of weeks were just BLEH. It was definitely starting to take it's toll on my body. For a variety of reasons, my body has a hard time with a lot of foods, particularly starchy/sugary foods -which are unfortunately my favorite. Anyway, because of that, if I don't closely monitor my intake of these types of foods and make sure I'm eating a balanced diet, my body starts to really hate me. My stomach starts hurting pretty much non-stop and my muscles and joints start to really struggle with inflammation and achy-ness. It gets to the point where even my feet get so swollen they're unrecognizable and I can hardly walk from how much they hurt. Anyway, because of all that yuck I decided to do a cleanse. Give my insides a nice Spring cleaning. Just really detoxify all the ick I had been loading into my stomach, give it a nice break, and start over. Let me tell you guys, though, I'm on day 2 and it's HARD. Even my dog is starting to look appetizing. Just kidding. That was totally gross, haha.
Dudes, it's the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale! Which means you all need to get your shop on! Plus, the jacket I'm wearing? Yeah, it's from Nordstrom...so now's your chance to snag it on sale!! Also, these lace up sandals are everything you guys. Everything. I'd been wanting them for weeks, but they sold out online within a day. Luckily, they had them in-store so I snatched 'em up in a heart beat! Holla! Anyway, yeah, I'm sleepy and just a leettle bit hangry so that's all I have for you all.
Remember how a couple of weeks ago I said school was over so I was officially back to blogging...but then I wasn't? Well, now I'm actually back. ;) For real this time, so see I told y'all I was back...:) Anyway, do you all also remember how I said I had SOOO much to catch you up on? Well, I have no idea what that "SOOO much" even was anymore. Whoops, haha. Story of my life, though. I'm always telling my sister I have so many juicy stories to tell her, but if I get distracted for even one second I completely forget all of them. So tragic. ;) I have the absolute worst memory in the world. I can't even remember what day of the week it is when I wake up in the mornings. Really, I wake up so confused like, "what planet am I on, and is it Tuesday or Friday?" It's pretty bad, haha. Also, I think grades are out now...and I have yet to check. I'm fairly sure I got A's -not to toot my own nerdy horn- but I mean, ya never know, right?
Sooo Utah weather lately has been ridiculous. We've pretty much had non-stop rain for the last two weeks and the forecast for this week is no different. It is completely wild. Now, I'm usually a HUGE fan of the rain but three straight weeks of full on storms is just a little too much for me. It's putting a damper on my summer activities. Haha, "damper" get it? Get it? I'm so punny, guys. ;) Anyway, in clothing related topics, this dress is bomb. It's vintage-y classic and I just lurve it. Perfect easy, breezy, summer dress. Since it's thrifted, though, I'll just link similar options down below for your buying pleasure. Also, gladiator sandals. They're still going strong. And I love it! If you haven't bought a pair yet, buy some. Like, yesterday.
I'm sure you're all butt tired of seeing/reading about my Spring break trip to Cali...but there were just so many dang good photos still left over to share with you all. Plus, I mean, how cute do my girls look in these photos? I loves them like I loves sugar and that's a whole dang lot! Anyway, this post is just going to be a whole lot of mush so if that's not your cup of oatmeal, well then, I apologize and you'll just have to skip out on this post...ya heartless fool. ;) Ok, so I just want to start off by saying that I have THE best friends a girl could have! Really and truly! (Allison, Ro, Lish, and Angelica you know you're my main babes) It's rare to be blessed with such spectacular humans to laugh, cry, share, learn, and grow with! They're a dime a dozen. I won't go too into detail into their individual awesomeness because I don't want to invade their privacy so I'll just say that seeing them grow into the individuals that they are today and being able to (hopefully) grow and mature right alongside them has been such a blessing. They've all individually and collectively taught me so much. Sharing life with them has been so grand and having fun memories, like the ones captured above, to look back on and share with my future kids will be great! The only thing is, everything is online nowadays and we rarely ever print photos anymore. I'm making it a goal to get my favorite photos from the last few years printed and placed into a simple album. I think often times I make mountains out of the molehills of things that aren't quite going how I'd like, and I end up completely overlooking all of the cherishable moments that my life is so full of! Anyway, I'm grateful for the spectacular friends in my life and if I can be even a little bit as good as they are, I will have accomplished a lot! Thanks, babes!
