I sure hope so! I haven’t been gone for too long, but I have missed you!
I can’t believe it’s been an entire week since I’ve last posted. Sorry to leave you hanging, but life happened and blogging was just not on the top of my to do list, but now I have a few moments to myself and am able to give you a little bit of an update on what’s been happing in my life lately…
Last week an uncle of mine passed away, so that was a hard week and we’ve had (and still have) a lot of relatives down visiting, so I’ve just been trying to spend as much time with my family as possible during this time.
I’ve also been a lot busier with school than I anticipated. As I mentioned before, even though I am done my classes at CSNN, I have to study all summer for the final board exam to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and complete a total of 14 case studies from now until August 22nd. So, I’ve been spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen, working on my case studies; therefore, any “free time” I make for myself includes time away from the computer screen, which equals less blogging.
I’m also really just enjoying being back home. After 4 years of living away from my parents and after 6 months of living away from my fiancé, I am enjoying every moment I have here with them.
Eddie and I have been having a lot of date nights lately, which has included a lot of salmon and veggie grilling and movie nights! I’m currently obsessed with grilled salmon, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and sweet peppers.
We recently watched the movie Bad Words, which we both enjoyed and laughed out loud a few times to, but when we tried to watch Anchorman 2, we both agreed to shut it off after 45 minutes in because we thought it was pretty lame.
On Sunday night, Eddie and I slept over at my parents’ new cabin at the lake for the first time. It was so cozy and fun to get away from the city for a night, but the mosquitos were insane; however, I had the best sleep of my life and loved waking up with the sun and to the sound of the birds, so I think that made up for the 50 extra mosquito bites I left with
Eddie and I have also discovered a new band thanks to SNL. They’re called The National and I am currently addicted to their song I Need My Girl. I hope you enjoy it, too!
Today I plan to work on my case studies for the majority of the day, but I also have a lunch date with my Mom and a few of my Aunties and Grandma. It should be a fun outing for the girls!
I look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays as those are my Mom’s days off from work and we usually spend the days together.
I hope you all had a great start to your week and will talk to you again soon! I’m not sure when, but I will pop in every week for sure or whenever I am feeling inspired and give you an update on what’s going on in my life! Until then, I highly recommend reading this post by Lindsay Cotter about Digital Detoxing. After a week off of blogging and a lot less time spent on other forms of social media (especially Instagram), I can strongly relate to this post and agree that after my “digital detox”, my mind is much more at ease and I’m more engaged in everything around me.
