February Reflections 🌹

Good morning guys! 🙂

February has gone by so fast and I can’t believe that tomorrow is March 1st! I thought I’d take some time to reflect back on February and see if I accomplished anything I wanted to accomplish.

February felt like it went by quickly, but in the moment it was passing by so slow! I spent the beginning of the month attempting to get back into a diet of some sort and a workout routine. Well, I can say that I’ve got both of them down. Which is surprising because I feel like I’ve been trying to do that for the past three months. I think my whole mindset changed.. summer is only what, three months away? I need to get in shape and actually follow a healthy diet plan. My husband and I decided to get back on Keto so we could get that boost of weight loss and then after we have gotten to our goal weight, we will switch back to a normal diet. Keto for me is fine for a short-term weight loss option, but I don’t really like doing it for a long period of time. Plus, spring/summer is going to be here soon and I love fruit way too much to miss out on that! We have a nice market close to us here with the freshest of fruits and we always miss out because we’re on a diet. And since we have a trip coming up at the end of May and possibly end of April, I want to look and feel my best! So hopefully by our next trip I will be exactly where I want to be. I just wished I started earlier, but at least I started now!

I didn’t get to blog as much as I did this month, so that will be one of the things I will be focusing on next month. March is slightly busy for a couple days at work because we have some events going on, but aside from that it won’t be too bad. That will give me a lot of time to focus on myself and not be so stressed out. 

Also hoping that March will be much warmer than February. I am SO tired of the cold and have never been more excited for Spring to arrive! This winter feels like the longest one we’ve had in forever and from what I remember, didn’t the ground hog say we’re going to have an early Spring?!?! Warmer weather makes me so much more productive and I’m so ready for those picnics in the park with my husband 🙂

Aside from all of that, I think it was a pretty good month. There were some long weeks, but I had fun. January and February always seem like they pass by the quickest and I always forget about what happened in those two months! It’s like it’s a blur after New Years until summer! Hoping for March to be filled with lots of happiness, fun, smiles, and time outside! 

How do you guys feel like February was?! Did it pass by as quickly as it felt like for me? Do you have any cool plans for March? Let me know in the comments!! 🙂

 

Side note: Our trip is in 85 days!!!!! It seems so far away, but it’ll be here in no time! I need to make a countdown on here 🙂

 

 

 

Hello February! 💘

Hi everyone!

A little late on the February post, but it’s a new month! In the past, my husband and I never really took Valentine’s Day seriously because we were in high school and college. Now that we’re married, we’re going to celebrate it as best as we can! But aside from Valentine’s Day, new month = new goals. Of course I have my other goals in general, but I like to do specific goals for the month. For example, I want to create a consistent routine for the gym. Our gym is finally completed so I can start working out whenever. Sounds easy, right? Nope! It’s very hard to get yourself in that routine of working out when you haven’t worked out in probably over 6 months. So I need to make a plan, a schedule to keep me motivated and going to the gym.

At this point, I am just trying to be healthy. I’m not getting any younger and neither is my body so I need to take care of it. I wish I had this mentality when I was in college, but who did?! One step at a time, though. It isn’t hard and I can do this! On the plus side, I bought something that I think it’s going to motivate me for the gym – some really good pre-workout that apparently tastes like Mountain Dew and it’s going to be delivered today! Maybe I’ll do a review of it?! Okay, enough of that!

Mirhad and I made a very serious decision last week that we won’t be telling anyone about until it’s time to do it, but it will be in 2020. Big changes coming!!!! We have decided to do this for ourselves because this is what we’ve wanted to do for so long and we are super excited for it! And no, it’s not that we have not decided to have kids! I cannot wait until I can officially make a post about it, it will change everything ☺️

In the meantime, we have lots of work to do until 2020. I am hoping to really take my blog to the next level this year, but I’m not sure where to start. Does anyone have any helpful tips? I would greatly appreciate them!

And one of the last goals I will mention is that I want to spend less time on my phone. I feel like in the last 6 months I’ve noticed (and so has my husband) that I have a slight addiction to my phone. The problem is that I really do spend way too much time browsing social media. It’s okay if it has something to do with my blog, but most of the time it doesn’t. So that’s one of my other goals, to spend less time on my phone and more time talking to my husband, family, and friends.

Do you have any goals for this month? Let me know! 🙂

Good morning!!!!

Happy Tuesday 😀 I’m in a great mood, got good sleep. Going to get a lot of stuff done today 🙂 about to update my planner with the things I need to do today. I am struggling hard with my financial management material, so I have to go extra hard at trying to learn it so I know it well for the test, ugh 😦

Think I will maybe give out some of the invitations to my bridal shower today or tomorrow, like half and the other half another day. Honestly, I just want to send them out so I don’t have to worry about doing it later, since school piles up on you like no other!!!

Why is coffee sooo good??? It just tastes so amazing and it is such a needed thing in the morning for me, it gives me an extra boost and it tastes good! I put this vanilla creamer with a latte foaming thing – SUPER good.

I really can’t wait until next week is done with so I’m over all of these exams lol. Oh yeah, we booked a hotel for my bachorlette so that’s exciting. I’m excited for that, just going to hangout with my friends and have some fun. Not doing anything crazy, wish spas were cheaper so we could all go hahaha. But at least they have hella good food where we’re going.. lots of good places 😋

I need to find some time in between this studying to write down some wedding venues I’m interested in so we can choose one. I really want to do something different, but I don’t want it to be too expensive since I’m not paying for it our parents are. I’ll see what I can find soon 😀

Ummm, yeah that’s pretty much it for now. Gotta post my self love challenge later today.

See ya!

To-do list and goals for the week of February 5th:

Good morning!!!!!

It’s February ♥️ ♥️ I’m excited that we’re one month closer to graduating and one month closer to moving into our new house!!! On the other hand, it means exams are coming soon lol.. not excited about that. But I guess I can be excited about the fact that we are almost on week 4 in my online classes, so 4 more weeks and I am FREE lol. I will only have 2 classes to worry about 🙌🏼

Drinking coffee currently, thinking about what makeup look I should do today?? Wish I had a good camera to take pics of my makeup but it always looks bad when I try to take a picture of my eyes and stuff. Maybe one day when I have better lighting. Can’t wait till I get to make my own makeup room, it’s going to have super good lights!! 😀 

I have class at 1:30 today and then I have to finish my investments assignment. I might go look for some heels for the concert (maybe). I kind of want closed-toed shoes but I have a lot of pairs so maybe I’ll choose one of those. I need to go to Elma’s to try on some pants to see if any fit me for the concert, too. 

Finished my marketing assignments last night at like 9ish…barely. Lol, took me forever to just sit down and focus on it. I did everything in my power not to hahahah 😂 but I’m glad it’s done and over with! I also need to workout today seriously ****

I’ll post outfit ideas maybe later tonight or tomorrow if I remember. That’s pretty much it, see ya!

Hello!!!

It’s Friday!!!!!! As I’m typing the date in the heading I am realizing it’s literally the 26th of January, how is it February in 5 days?!?!!?!!? This month seriously flew by, only been in school for 3-4 weeks (3 weeks regular, 4 weeks grad). But wow…. February! Spring Break will be here before you know it and then graduation!!!!!!

I really want to go somewhere on vacation, honestly idc where as long as I see some mountains because I’ve been really missing them lately. I feel like I just need to get away from everything and everyone and just have some peace and quiet in the mountains. Maybe I will just dip one of these weekends and not say anything to anyone lol.

Have to finish a quiz today for marketing that he just put up today that’s due tomorrow (wtf thanks) and then I have a micro assignment I was handed Wednesday, so I’ll try to finish those two today while watching Netflix 🙂

I need to update my planner for the next week. Speaking of my planner, I bought stickers for it lol I’m so lame, but it helps a lot when things are colorful and also when I can cross stuff that I’ve done off 😀 Best planner I’ve ever bought @ Target, think I’m going to get the same one next year too, but I also saw something where you can design your own. I’m going to need it when I start work!

Tomorrow morning I’m going to register for my bridal shower with Mirhad and then probably work on the house.

Going to blog more later today, see ya!
