Hello February! ๐Ÿ’˜

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 โ˜บ๏ธ

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wednesday April 4, 2018 ๐ŸŒฟ

Hello there!

Happy Wednesday! It’s been a cold day, but the sun has been out so it doesn’t seem as gloomy and cold as it is. This morning I went to class and then went grocery shopping. Got lots of good food and I’m excited to make something for dinner tonight. I might make a recipe and post it on here! Either I make something up of my own or I find something online and try to make it.. we’ll see. When I came back from grocery shopping, I cleaned everything out of my fridge, threw away anything that was old, and organized it. Feels good!!!! It looks nice but I know by tomorrow it won’t look like that hahahah. Then I cleaned the rest of the kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Made some lunch after that and now I’m here!

Going to work on the house around 5 again today and then come back and make dinner. I might look at my homework assignments or I might just leave it for tomorrow, we’ll see. But my new goal is to watch an episode ofย This is Usย everyday, that way I can at least finish that show and start another one.ย 

Now I am researching how to get rid of spiders in the basement and keep spiders/bugs away from my house. I like the idea of putting mulch around the house, it would make it more appealing too. Here’s some links I found.ย

I like the idea of mulch and I can also spray the holes and window corners with peppermint oil mixed with water since spiders apparently hate the scent of peppermint?

I think this is also a good idea, it makes the house more appealing plus spiders hate cedar mulch apparently so this may work.ย 

If anyone knows any other remedies for getting rid of spiders and keeping them away, please let me know!ย 

See ya! ๐Ÿ™‚
