5 Things I Think You Ought To Know

It's no secret July was a slow blog month for me.

So for the few of you still hanging around, thank you, and let's get caught up shall we?

Here are five things upcoming, exciting, or just plain share worthy so that you can know what's going on with me. You know, since you missed me and all.

ONE | I had my 2 year blogiversary and it came and went. No balloons, no confetti, not even a give away. Still I feel like it was a big milestone and I'm kind of sad I wasn't able to celebrate it.  {Insert cheers with a big frosty craft beer here}

TWO | I'm getting a new blog design! The amazing Erin from Love Fun and Football is doing the redesign and I am super excited. Think bright and fun with a twist. I. CAN'T. EVEN. WAIT. Here's a sneak peak at my inspiration board!

THREE | The BF built me my very own desktop for home. I feel like I'm a real time blogger now with a real computer at home and my own desk and everything. Now I just want to decorate the space with pretty blogger inspired etsy prints and artsy goodness.  But I'm broke. Oh and did I mention that I have a 32" monitor? Yeah it's humongous and that isn't even an exaggeration. Pins for days my friends.

FOUR | This weekend is the annual pool party one of our good friends and his parents throw each year as sort of a send off to summer. It's one of my favorite weekends of the year and it couldn't have landed more perfectly than the weekend after Fair. Lord knows this girl needs a drink, and one last hurrah because...

FIVE | I am starting Whole30 Monday! The book arrived last night and I can't wait to dive in. I NEED to get my eating under control and shed a little bit of weight and I feel like this might be the program I can actually stick with. Let's hope I'm not too hungover Sunday so that I can do all my meal prep! Post to come on all that business soon!

And basically that's it over here. Hope you have a beyond amazing weekend!

  1. I am trying to control my eating, too. I have a problem with portion sizes and not eating a good variety of foods.

  2. Good luck on Whole 30! Maybe you'll give me the courage to try it :)

  3. I love the Whole 30! I did one round and it really helped both my body and my eating habits. You really do need to read the book though. It helps to understand why you are doing and eating things. And you'll love the results at the end of 30 days!

  4. If you need any Whole30 recipes hit me up! As soon as the wedding is over I plan on doing another round - It's the best thing I've done for weight loss for sure!

    I can't wait to see your blog design - I'm loving those colours! I budgeted for next month to finally get Erin to revamp mine - I can't wait!!

  5. That is the LARGEST desktop I've ever seen! Wow! You're big time! ;) and Erin rocks!!! Can't wait to see the new layout!

  6. I can't wait to see your blog design! How awesome!!!! And a 32 inch monitor??? I WANT ONE!!! My husband has some in his office but I am working on a 17 inch lap top. Sigh. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Whole 30, I know you got it! Have a great weekend!

  7. YAY! BOYFRIEND WINS ALL THE POINTS THIS WEEK! That all looks amazing! So glad to have you back, dear (just in time for me to start hibernating for the last few weeks of my thesis writing! HA!) x

  8. My monitor at work is sooo much bigger than my laptop screen. I am dreaming of a bigger apartment (or a house) where I can have a desk, a desktop computer with a nice big monitor, and of course all the Pinterest-worthy bloggy desk decor like you said! Speaking of Pinterest, your inspiration board is gorgeous--can't wait to see the new blog design!

  9. Ooo I LOVE your inspiration board, can't wait to see what Erin comes up with for you! Happy 2 year blogiversary! Enjoy your weekend!

  10. So I will have to check out the Whole 30...I've seen it posted around but know basically nothing about it....Also that screen......that screen is giving me life right now! Want!

  11. I love huge monitors. Can't wait to see your new blog design!
