Happy Wednesday everyone!
What We’re Eating This Week
Same as always! We’ve been on a sweet potato fry kick lately & Costco sells huge bags of them. Last weekend, I made a batch of these almond butter & jelly muffins which I plan on making again today!
What I’m Reminiscing About
We just celebrated our one year anniversary on June 11th! It honestly doesn’t feel like it’s been a year already. We had our ceremony at Curtis’ parents place and our reception was held in Omaha. We had a pretty small, casual wedding without a bridal party. We just wanted everyone to have fun & celebrate with everyone!
What I’m Loving
Miss MacKenzie, our new foster pup! We got her last week & she has been a lot of fun to have around. You guys, I’m not sure if I can let this go. She is the sweetest dog, is trained, and isn’t afraid of people unlike our last foster.
What We’ve Been Up To
We were in St. Louis until June 6th which was a lot of fun. We did as much as possible & ate ALL the food. I feel like I’m still trying to get back to normal after eating all types of junk food. BUT.. it was so nice to get away from Nebraska for awhile and explore a new-to-me city! You can check out my recap posts here, here, & here.
Obviously the concert was the best part of the trip! I went back to work on June 12th after being off for a week & a half so that first week was a struggle.
This past Sunday, we road tripped to Webster City, IA for a family reunion for Curtis’ family.
What I’m Dreading
The day that we have to run across the bridge over to Iowa for boot camp. They usually do this once or twice each summer and we have yet to do it. I was convinced we would run yesterday since the weather was cooler than normal but we didn’t. I don’t run… ever, haha.
What I’m Working On
I found a legit work from home position that I’m still in the process of getting figured out. I had to do this pre-qualification test which I was just notified that I passed & I’ve been accepted for my first “project”. It’s only a few hours a week which is what I am wanting right now. I don’t think I could handle doing anything more on top of my full time job.
What I’m Excited About
My friend Alice launched her blog on June 1st & she is killing it! Check it out! A Silver Lined Life
We stayed in Kansas City on our way back from St. Louis and got to visit Sophie, our foster pup that was adopted last month. She is doing so well & is so happy in her new home! I’m excited to see how she progresses!
What I’m Watching/Reading
Currently, I’m not watching anything. Curtis is trying to get me into Big Brother this year so we will see. As for reading, I just started The Roanoke Girls on Sunday. So far, I really like it!
What I’m Listening To
Still on a Metallica kick after the concert earlier this month!
What I’m Wearing
This dress with a denim jacket & Target sandals. I’m so glad I ordered this dress when I did as they are now all mostly sold out! I keep checking back to see if they re-stock any other colors but they haven’t. 🙁
What We’re Doing This Weekend
As of right now, we don’t have anything planned. I might be getting together for lunch with one of my friends who lives about an hour away. She is due to have her baby VERY soon and we haven’t seen each other in months!
What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month
July is looking to be a pretty relaxing month as we don’t have anything going on… at least for now.
What Else Is New
I changed my work schedule so now I get off at 4:30 instead of 5:00 which was been wonderful! I know, a whopping 30 minutes isn’t much but it sure feels like it. I’ve been doing 8:00-5:00 for so long now that I needed a change.
Bonus: What Is Your Favorite 4th of July Tradition?
As I’ve gotten older, I haven’t celebrated the 4th of July as much as I used to. It’s kind of just an extra day off!
