Hey guys! Yes I am still alive…I don’t know what has happened the last couple of weeks but I took a weekend break from blogging and it somehow turned into a two week break. And I hated it! It’s not that I don’t have any ideas for blog posts I have just been so busy at work and on the weekends I haven’t made the time. So if you stuck around the last two weeks you are the real MVP!
It has been a while since I did a life update and since it has been two weeks of nothing (except for this guest post!) let’s jump in and see what’s been going on lately.
The good stuff
>> I am excited to announce that I am the official blog editor for Trend Magazine! I will be in charge of all the articles on the blog, working with the social media team to market each post and the blog, and monitoring/starting their Pinterest page. Needless to say the past few weeks have been filled with meetings and training for that so that has played a huge role into why I’ve been so MIA. But I’m really excited to be part of this team!
>> We are leaving for our cruise this weekend and I seriously cannot wait! I need a vacation so bad and it will be a blast going with our friends. 
>> All of my friends are pregnant which is so fun because babies are so cute and I just want them all!
>> If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my post about how I have some secrets coming. Well they really aren’t that big of a deal haha (sorry!). Just small things like I got rid of my sponsor program because I just wasn’t at a place where I felt I was doing a sufficient job for my sponsors and I am still trying to figure out time management. I revamped my About page as well as my Pinterest! But the biggest change is I decided that I am going to switch to WordPress! I don’t know how or when (please suggest someone who can help me!) but I’m going to do it! 
>> We finally got a Cinnabon in Saint George and my sweet tooth is sooo happy!! Hopefully I can contain myself…
>> I did a ton of photo shoots over the last few weeks and they were all super fun! Hopefully I can do some more soon. 
The bad stuff
>> The last week at work has been pretty discouraging and I am trying to figure out the best way to handle it all. If you follow me on Twitter you probably have seen my struggles haha
>> Dakota had a bad day at physical therapy and his back/leg has been hurting worse ever since. We are going to go get a second opinion and maybe look into surgery but we will see. Hopefully we can get this all figured out soon. 
>> My hair still as stactic-y as ever….I just want to chop it all off…
In my spare time
>> I have been reading a ton more! I missed reading and am currently working on a great book and I can’t wait to share my review with you. 
>> We’ve been cleaning out our house and guest room of clutter because it has just been a hott mess and hopefully we will be done this weekend! I can’t wait for an actual guest bedroom. 
>> Our evenings and weekends are mostly filled with hanging out with our friends playing football or watching movies and I love it! We have such a great group of friends and I’m glad we are so close knit and hang out as much as we do. 

>> I’ve been going to the gym! It has been really nice too. My sister comes with me and I have been trying to go at least 5 times a week and so far so good. Some weeks are better than others (like this week) but this is the most consistent I have been!

Did you see this?

  1. Congrats on your position at Trend Magazine! That's amazing. How was your cruise? I love cruises and am itching for a vacation after this long winter. Do you use a “real camera” (DSLR) for your beautiful blog photos? I've always wondered because I love your pictures. Have you been reading anything good lately? I'm re-reading an old favorite, The Forgotten Garden.
