Thinking Out Loud: Rest & Airports

Oh hey everyone! I’ve been missing from the blog world for the past week and it’s truly been a nice break. So let’s try to catch up by linking up with Thinking Out Loud!

Thinking-Out-Loud

  • Coffee and kitties are my favorite way to start my morning!photo(153)
  • In just a few hours I go into the dentist office and get my wisdom teeth taken out. I’m not excited about it, but I know I need to stop putting it off. Bring on the chipmunk cheeks!
  • While I’ve been away I was able to truly rest. I think my body needed and enjoyed a break from Crossfit. It was also refreshing for my mind to get away to a new place and not have the stress and worries that fill my mind while at home. And it’s always nice to spend time with people who fill you with happiness.Jul 31 rest week
  • Airports are one of the most fascinating places to me. I absolutely love being in the airport. I love looking at all the people. Where are they going? What are they doing? Who are they? You see the true colors of people when they are dealing with delays and cancelled flights. After a evening filled with delays I was thankful to finally get home.jul 31 rain airport
  • A rainy day afternoon/night in the airport made me crave warm, savory foods. I had a cappuccino from Starbucks with a cinnamon chip scone. I forget how good cappuccinos are. I was also so thankful that I had chosen to wear skinny jeans and bring a hoodie since I was sitting in a cold place for a long time!Jul 31 Starbucks
  • Yesterday was my last Crossfit workout at the box I’ve been going to all summer. Next week I’ll return to school and will be trying out a new box once my wisdom teeth heal up. Yesterday’s workout was fun and I really enjoyed it. For 20 minutes we worked on gymnastics moves that we wanted to improve on. Many of us worked on handstands and it was a lot of fun. I definitely improved and got more okay with getting up on the wall. The WOD: 3 rounds of 3 min: 500 meter row then wall balls until time ran out. My quads were so tired!Jul 31 crossfit
  • It’s always nice to catch up with you old friends from home. It’s neat how we can be at completely different stages of our lives, but still can talk about anything.
  • I know I’ve been saying I’m moving to a new blog and I promise it’s happening soon. The design is almost done and I’m thinking by next week it’ll be complete! Eeeek! I cannot wait!
  • I can’t believe my summer is basically over. All of a sudden last week was my last time working with my Dad since I’ll be out of commission this weekend due to my wisdom teeth. But I’m ready to get my final semester of school started. Jul 31 sprinkler and dad

That’s all for today!

Tell me your thoughts!

Oh Heyy…It’s November!

Hello blog world!

It’s been wayyy too long since I’ve last posted and it makes me really sad. I can’t believe it’s November and my last post was towards the end of September. Sorry October you were just too out of control for me to blog about.

My life has just been super hectic with school, work, sorority stuff, and life in general this semester. This weekend has been one where I’m finally getting some time to myself and I’ve truly enjoyed it.

There are an innumerable amount of things I would love to blog about, but I’ll stick with recapping my life with pictures (only a few). To be honest I’m a little overwhelmed by this post I don’t know where to start or when to stop or what to include or leave out, but here it goes!

I’ve gotten to see my parents a few times since I last posted. Seeing them is always refreshing and rejuvenating. I’m so blessed to have the parents that I do. They support me and encourage me in everything that I do.

I am madly in love with my friends and the senior year we are having together. I hope it’s not weird to use the phrase “madly in love” in reference to my girlfriends, but I do truly love them and the fun we are getting to have with one another. The picture below isn’t the best, but it really represents all of the joy and laughter we have being together.

I’m ready for this semester to be over. It’s a rough one. I enjoy my classes, but they just keep me busy. There’s always something I could be working on. It’s never-ending.

Working out and eating healthy has been a challenge like it always is. Some weeks I’ve had to skip a few workouts and have definitely slacked on eating healthy, but it happens to the best of us. At the same time I’m just continuously learning about what I put into my body and how it affects me. More on that at a later time.

I’ve gotten to take pictures on the field for two of our home football games this semester. I’m in love. Shooting sports, especially football, is really hard and I definitely have a big appreciation to sports photographers. It’s all about being in the right place at the right time.

In the midst of this chaotic semester sometimes I forget to take a moment to breathe and just to reflect on how blessed my life is. I’ve made some decisions that I’m not sure how they’ll impact my future, but I just have to hold on to my belief that God has a plan for me that is better than anything that my crazy little blonde brain could ever imagine.

psalm 119:114

So these next few weeks leading up to Thanksgiving break I hope to take some time to myself to allow my soul to be refreshed and renewed. Hopefully, I’ll get to return to this little space I have in the blog world to write again, but obviously that’s a challenge.

Have a great week!

When life gets crazy what do you have to cut out?

What do you do to make time for yourself?
