It’s been a long time… Shouldn’ta left you… – Aaliyah
That’s how I feel in a nutshell. So much has happened in the last 4 months and 10 days since I last blogged. I’ve done a lot and in some aspects nothing at all. I thought it was time that I find some time to just write and get in the groove of a creative outlet. So… here’s what’s new with me…
I believe that I may have mentioned (maybe not) that I got a promotion at work. Fun stuff. Well that has taken up so much of my time. I’ve been completely wrapped up in my new responsibilities that during the day that’s all I have time for. It’s not totally a bad thing, just takes some getting used to. Fun fact: I got my promotion at the end of May and since then have moved offices twice. Awesome.
My life outside of work has been equally as busy. My daughter has been so much more involved in dance that it’s consumed most of our free time. The husband and I really need a date night. Desperately.
I’ve been on a roller coaster ride with my workouts the last few months. I have all the best intentions and even take my gym bag to work so I can workout right after. I follow through maybe once a week. If that. I’m just being honest here guys. My weight went up a bit and then down again but I’m trying to stay consistent for at least the next month and a half. #goals
My planning life has gone down the rabbit hole that is the Instagram planning community. I even use a totally new planning system. It’s been such a refreshing life changer for me. It’s crazy how I find something like using a planner so therapeutic for me. But not gonna lie, it’s so time consuming!! Instagramming is hard work.
After spending the past 2 years of our wedding anniversary locally, we are FINALLY taking an anniversary trip and it’s to one of my favorite cities in the world. (Not that I’ve been to many but you get it.) We’re going to DC!!! I’m so excited. This is the reason for my month and a half workout goal mentioned above. Hey, I find motivators where I can.
My beauty hustle has been virtually nonexistent. I can’t remember when the last time I bought makeup. I just look at all the stuff I already have and feel no desire to purchase more. That’s the perfect situation for someone who considers themselves a beauty blogger. #fail I have purchased a ton of skincare so I guess that counts for something.
I’ve gotta say… writing this post has felt really good. I mean, it took me a few hours to complete it because #life but I’m still glad that I did it.
