February Reflections ๐ŸŒน

Good morning guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

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.ย 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!ย Hoping for March to be filled with lots of happiness, fun, smiles, and time outside!ย 

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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Side note: Our trip is inย 85 days!!!!! It seems so far away, but it’ll be here in no time! I need to make a countdown on here ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

West Coast Road Trip Pt.3: San Francisco!

Hello hello!

Continuing on from my previous blog post, we woke up super early to go catch our flight to SFO. It was a short flight (yay) and the most craziest thing happened before we tried to land. So from the start, they were saying the plane that was supposed to take us to SFO was running late due to weather conditions back in SFO. I was worried right away about how this flight would be and it really wasn’t all bad until we were about to land. So all of a sudden it got super cloudy and foggy for a good 5-10 min. You could see the mountains and then a layer of clouds. All of a sudden after a couple of minutes of traveling through these clouds, we just see the ocean lol. It was a little bit scary and then we landed 5 seconds later! Anyways, finally in SFO and it’s SUPER cloudy. We had to go find the place to pick up our rental car and then we’d be on our way.

The first stop we made was to In n’ Out of course, it was soooooo good. We’ve tried it before and the mistake we always made was adding animal sauce or whatever it was and it didn’t taste good. But this time we just got regular burgers and fries and it was delish!

After we ate, we found out that they didn’t even clean our rental car, it was so filthy in the back so we went and returned it. They gave us a different better car and then we were on our way to go see the Golden Gate Bridge! It took maybe 30 min to drive there from the airport which wasn’t too bad, but we were trying to avoid those traffic times. The bridge was beautiful and the scenery surrounding it was so nice, but it was sooooo windy and cold! You could barely keep your eyes open for a picture!

After taking some pictures, we started driving towards one of our friends houses since we agreed to stay at their place for the night. It was about an hour away and we went through a lot of hills. It was a cool drive over there! When we arrived, their dog was waiting to greet us and ran back inside so we could meet her in there. She was so shy in the beginning, but got so comfortable with us that she was sad to see us go! Our friend Elvira got off work around 6 so we chilled with her brother Eldar until she came home. After that, we just went to drive around and explore downtown and saw some cool places. We got to see that cool street that’s super curvy, it was at night, but it was still awesome. We also went somewhere to a very high hill, but it was so foggy you couldn’t see anything.ย 

So after a quick day in SFO, we woke up the next day refreshed and ready for our road trip down to Yosemite! More in the next post ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Tuesday overview!

Good morning!

Happy Tuesday! It’s very hot and humid outside already and it’s almost 10am. Really want to go take a walk later today with Mirhad (if it’s not scorching hot outside) to just get some sun and some exercise. Working from home today, was going to go into work, but I just felt like working from home. Yesterday was one of the worst days at work, can’t really say on here, but I am doing something about it. Not going to sit around anymore and let people treat me the way I shouldn’t be treated.ย 

Anyways, have some stuff I need to get done today like booking our flights! Probably should’ve booked it a couple of days ago since now we’re like what 28 days away from the trip? So exciting! Lol I am excited even though we didn’t even officially book anything hahahaha. Today I also need to find an Airbnb for the 2 other places. Might make a post about that today if possible.ย 

I also want to sit down with Mirhad and see if we can get started on making the other blog website I want to create. He was in school yesterday so he’s so tired lol I’m not even going to try to wake him up todayย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย poor guy hahaha. If he can get through this last semester, he can do anything.ย 

Also planning on making another post today, it’ll be about something specific ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all for now, see ya! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dallas, Texas Trip 2018

Hey there!

Earlier this week I promised a Dallas blog post and I am here to fulfill that promise ๐Ÿ™‚

So this Dallas trip was meant to be a short, weekend trip. It was my birthday last Wednesday and we decided to leave on Thursday after I got off of work. One thing I will never do again is wait last minute to pack… I literally came home at 3pm and we wanted to leave at 5 so that left me 2 hours to pack everything I needed and also take a quick shower. It was lots of pressure to get out of the house by 5, but we did it and had to go grab some food and go to Walmart because we forgot something. So we actually ended up leaving around 6 lol. For a second I was annoyed because that means we have to drive until like 3-4am, but I got over it because after all IT IS a weekend trip ๐Ÿ™‚

We had lots of fun on the drive, lots of good music, some good snacks, and just the open road. Honestly, I feel like there really is no better feeling in life than taking a trip, driving out on the open road, blasting your favorite music, and forgetting about all of your worries.

We arrived at our Airbnb around 3-4am, I was a little scared of walking around so late at night in a new city, but it actually ended up being perfectly fine and safe. Our garage was right next to the Airbnb so we checked in with security. As soon as we got into our room, we knocked out. Woke up the next morning ready to explore. We swam a lot on the rooftop pool, ate lots of BBQ, and explored what the city had to offer. I didn’t take lots of pictures, but I took some and they are good memories to me.

 

It was a very fun trip and for the first time in my life, I heard Mirhad say “that was fun, we should do it again, I’m excited for the next trip!” Literally have never heard him say that, so I was so excited to hear it and that means many more weekend trips to come ๐Ÿ™‚ and also going back to Dallas because we had so much fun and it’s not that far!

His birthday is coming up so I am trying to figure out a cool city to visit, we want to take a train this time so it can literally be anywhere. Maybe Houston? He was saying he would like to visit Houston, but we’ll see. I think I’ll take off that Wed-Fri so that gives us some more time to enjoy his birthday week/weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, I recommend visiting Dallas if you haven’t already. It’s seriously a beautiful city, I mean all of Texas that we saw was super nice. Also – Southern Hospatality is so real, this is the first time I’ve experienced it and PEOPLE ARE SO NICE HERE! It’s so different compared to St. Louis and the people are so different and much nicer lol.

Go visit Dallas!!!! You won’t regret it.

 

My favorite things about Spring! ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’

Hello!!

Spring is one of the best times, that cold weather finally going away, the grass getting greener, and that beautiful time where day-light savings comes around and our days seem longer.

I love so many things about Spring, but here are my favorites:

  • The new flowers blooming
  • That damp/humid weather after a little bit of rainfall
  • The world seems so much more colorful as we leave behind the dark winter days
  • Summer is just around the corner
  • The feeling of wearing a light jacket instead of that heavy winter jacket
  • Colorful wardrobe
  • That spring smell
  • Getting to spend more time outside
  • Feeling more positive
  • Spring break
  • Getting to plant flowers/vegetables
  • Getting to wear cute gladiators and sandals
  • Better mood
  • All new seasons of shows come out

And soon right after Spring.. comes summerย โ˜€๏ธ

Monday Feb. 12, 2018

Helloooooo!!!

Happy Monday! Went to class this morning and had a review for our test on Wednesday.. dude gave us a whole packet to study fromย ๐Ÿ˜ย Went to get my emissions test for my car bc it expires in a couple of days so I can register it again and now I’m at home making shrimp pasta. Going to do some homework from my online classes today and probably study a little bit.ย 

Also need to post my to-do list for this week!!!!! Ordered my valentine’s day gift for Mirhad, can’t wait till he gets it and texts me about itย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Oh yeah, this morning I was getting ready for class and about to pick up Mirhad so we can go to school so I texted him that I’ll be there by 9:20 and I get no reply when usually he’s up way earlier. 10 mins later I’m about to leave and I text him again and still no reply. So I decided to just go to class because I didn’t want to be late and then I’d come back and drive him to school. Turns out the diffuser I got for him was next to his bed on this little organizer thing (he needed a little night stand) and he knocked it over I guess over night and this dudes whole phone was soaked in water. So his alarm never went off obviously, but his phone is completely ruined hahahaa, like how random?? So now after he gets out of class today, we’re going to go buy him a new phone.. I guess this was meant to be because he needed a new phone anyways, it’s been overdue hahaha. So that is some shit that went down this morning, did get a good laugh out of it tho.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Speaking of laughing, this morning in micro, our teacher was drawing some graph that he was emphasizing wasn’t ever possible to do (which is what me and Adisa had on our homework lol) so we’re watching him draw it and he’s like “so if quantity is 10, how can there be another quantity??? What would quantity even be?” And I whisper to Adisa, “it can be my guzica.” And we start laughing, and she whispers back to me, “it can be sise”, literally we started laughing so hard our teacher looked at us, but we couldn’t stop. And what was even funnier is that the graph looked like that too hahaha. I thought I would have to leave class bc I couldn’t contain my laughter๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Weather should be nicer this week (YAY), so maybe I can spend some time outside?? I’m so excited, it’s been too cold these past couple of weeks, come on Spring, I’m ready for ya!!!

But yeah that’s pretty much my day, till next time!ย
