My Summer so Far

We’re almost halfway through summer already and I decided it was the perfect time to catch up on what’s been going on in my life.

First off I got surgery done on my other foot for those who don’t know. Both of my little toes grew pointing inward, so I had tailor’s bunions and the outside of my feet always hurt at least a little, so that needed to be fixed.

I also decided since it was summer and Aaron said he liked my hair short better I decided to go ahead and get it cut. It’s so much easier to take care of now and I do like it short. I just couldn’t decide for the longest time whether I wanted short hair or long hair.

Something really exciting is that Aaron and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on June 28th. I don’t have any pictures from the day we celebrated simply because we were both just enjoying spending the day together and didn’t pull out our phones or anything like that.

And finally 4th of July was a blast. These pictures of fireworks are actually from one of our friend’s mom seeing as my phone was at 2% when the fireworks started. We went to a bbq at our friend’s house and later that day we got to a perfect spot to watch the fireworks. Because we got there so early we killed some time throwing a football and frisbee around and then we went back to our friend’s house to play with sparklers and set off a couple of smaller fireworks.

Summer 2017 so far has been a blast and I hope you’re all having a great summer too!!

Trying to Get Healthier

Lately I have decided that it’s time I tried to get healthier considering that I have definitely put on some weight and it would just be good to try and get healthier anyway. I would just like to say that I am not vegetarian or vegan and I do not ever plan on becoming either, so there is not point in trying to pressure me into becoming either by constantly saying I should become one of those.

I have set myself a goal to drink two of this bottle full of water. I might actually bump it up to three considering I’ve been making the original goal fairly easily. It may not seem like a lot but for me even if I cut out other drinks, I won’t just start drinking water, so I had to set a goal and it’s going great.

Our fridge is now full of a lot more veggies as well seeing as I have been having a salad every day for lunch which I personally enjoy eating a salad a lot. I just sometimes like a burger or something else more.

This last grocery shopping trip I didn’t buy any frozen food either (the mozzarella sticks only have two left and that’s from when I just had surgery and couldn’t stand in order to cook food). I have been actually making dinner from recipes hence also why there are more vegetables in the house. The only thing that gets frozen is the meat to make sure it doesn’t go bad before I can get to making dinner with it.

With trying to be more healthy I am not completely cutting out bad things like soda and more unhealthy foods. I am just trying to limit my intake of them and make healthier foods and water my more normal every day diet.

I also have started walking the dog again and I’m doing the exercises I can, but of course my foot is still healing, so out of my two ten minute work out routines I can only do about 6 and half minutes of one. I’m not really sure why I decided to share this, but why not? Maybe it will inspire other people to not necessarily do this exact thing, but something else to help them feel better about themselves (not saying that you have to hate yourself in order to want to change things of course).

Umbreon Got Shaved

It was long past due. We finally were able to get around to shaving our dog Umbreon. img_0168

This is what she usually looks like. At least, for about half the year she looks like this. It doesn’t seem so bad, but her fur gets extremely matted because she is a Puli, but she isn’t a pure bred, so her fur won’t turn to dreadlocks like it’s supposed to. Which of course means that when summer and the heat come it’s time to shave it off.

IMG_0326.JPG

And here is what she looks like now. It’s not a perfect hair cut, but we aren’t professional dog groomers. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of the lump of fur that she took off her, but of course I forgot. For a size comparison I’m gonna use a picture of our 9 pound cat, Spooky.

We had enough for to make about one and a half of him.

Umbreon may not have enjoyed it much, but it is better in the long run seeing as she was even starting to try and rip out clump of her fur they were so matted and gross. That’s been our Saturday so far. Hope you are enjoying yours!!

Quick Update

I don’t really have any pictures or anything to add to this post, so sorry if it’s a little boring looking. I haven’t been doing much recently, so there hasn’t really been anything for me to write about on here as I have just been sitting around the apartment waiting for my foot to heal.

Seeing as summer has finally started hopefully we will do a bunch of cool stuff this summer that I can write about. I know in August we are going to be doing something extremely fun and awesome and this month is Aaron and I’s third anniversary.

For now though, I will just leave this quick little update here just to make sure people don’t think I’ve given up on this blog or anything like that. Have a happy summer!!

Some Stuff I Bought Recently

It has been a bit of a crazy month seeing as it was my birthday this month, I had surgery, and just some other crazy personal stuff, so I wasn’t really able to write much. Today I decided to share some stuff I bought recently.

IMG_0317.JPG

As you may know Eevvee and it’s evolutions are my favorite pokemon, with Sylveon being the absolute favorite. I already have some Eevee bags, but one more couldn’t hurt and this one was smaller for when I only needed my wallet and phone which I find very convenient and easy to use.

IMG_0318.JPG

It’s been getting starting to get super hot like it does in Colorado (yes I know there are hotter and worse places, the thing is I get super hot really easy), so I needed to get some tank tops that had lower cut arm pit holes for my rather sweaty self. This Zelda one looked awesome and it is super comfy and does exactly what I need it to.

IMG_0319.JPG

This next and final tank top is one of my new favorite shirts. The arm pit holes are cut super low, it’s black so you can’t see any sweat, and it has Umbreon on it. It’s even better cause it’s like I’m carrying my dog with me when I wear it seeing as she is named after this pokemon.

IMG_0320.JPG

My last item or items cause it came in a set of five are these adorable kitty socks. They are ankle cut which are the only kind of socks I wear and the colors are pink (obviously), light blue, lilac, black, and white.

That’s all I have to show for this post. I will hopefully be writing more soon as I really do enjoy writing on this blog and I know I don’t do it nowhere near enough.

What I do When I’m Sick

I was sick for about 4-5 days and I’m finally feeling much better with my stuffy nose having gone way down as well as my sore throat. In light of me being sick, I decided I would share some things I do when I am sick

IMG_0283

First off, definitely watch a lot of Netflix, YouTube and Hulu. When you’re sick and don’t really feel like doing much or just straight up can’t do much, catching up on shows and movies and the like is the perfect thing to do.

img_0198

Another great thing to do is to get some real progress on games that have piled up. I know I have the horrible habit of buying more games before I’ve completed all the ones I have, so they get piled up pretty quick. It’s a habit I try to break, but perfect for when I’m feeling under the weather.

The last and most important thing to do, is to remember to get plenty of sleep. There’s no point in pushing yourself to get a lot of stuff done as you’ll just stay sick for longer and you won’t even be able to get much done in the first place.

Relaxing on a Cozy, Rainy Spring Day

It has been pretty hot this past week, but today it decided to be much cloudier, cooler, and rainier. I am perfectly happy with this as I grew up in Oregon, so the smell and sound of rain are all comforting to me as is the look of the outside world being wet.

IMG_0280.JPG

I had planned on having a major cleaning day, but when I woke up and saw the weather I just felt like I wanted to relax and lounge around instead. My dog isn’t thrilled with the rain cause she hates getting wet, but she’ll survive.

IMG_0281.JPG

Today has pretty much consisted of me watching YouTube and Netflix. I watched one movie that I thought was pretty good and it’s called Slam. The ending wasn’t quite as happy as normal movies are, but I’m okay with that as nothing everything has to work out perfectly happy in the end and it’s okay to show more of real life like that by not having everything end with ‘and they lived happily ever after’.

IMG_0283.JPG

I also have one of those wax warmer things and I originally bought two scents for it, one of them being a lemon one which I LOVED. The other scent I bought I’m really not liking much at all like I thought I would and it’s called ‘Warm Up Winter’. It just has a weird undertone that I don’t really care for.

IMG_0282.JPG

That’s pretty much been my day and even though I haven’t done much productively I’m okay with that. It’s important to remember that there is nothing wrong with having a day where you really just get nothing done as it’s always good to relax and recharge yourself.
