Spring Update

Hey everyone!

So I got an email the other day about my account going to be charged X-Amount of money in order to keep this domain and it made me realize that I better start you know…using this thing if I’m gonna be paying for it. I want to try to use it as more of a every day blogging platform type thing. Okay, I don’t think that made any sense, but hopefully you’re still picking up what I’m putting down. That having been said, here’s a month by month update on my life so we’re all on the same page going forward.

Bought (technically on December 31st) and moved into my very first home! Talk about stupid amounts of stress and excitement! It’s been such a joy to have my own space to decorate and arrange exactly how I want it. All of those HGTV binge sessions are finally paying off!

Also in January, I went on a few classic dinner and a movie dates. They were a lot of fun and it was nice to see some movies – I hadn’t done that in ages.

One of my best friend’s older sister got married. She had asked me to do her makeup for the wedding, which completely floored me – what an honor! Her bachelorette party and wedding were both so much fun and I feel so lucky to have been able to be a part of both.

I threw a party at my house for my best friend Lana’s 25th birthday. For a lot of people it was the first time seeing the new casa, so it was fun to kind of show it off. It was also the first time my friends met the guy I have been seeing. All in all, I think it went well!

I had my 1/4 life crisis a.k.a my 25th birthday. It really wasn’t bad, although I did have to work that morning (a Saturday). But, the boy came over and took me out to dinner and then we went and hung out at my brother and sister-in-law’s house. It was lowkey and full of my favorite people – what more could you want?

I also started a new diet thing with my brother. He and my sister-in-law sell it, and we wanted to give it a shot with a buddy to hold us accountable. It’s a 3 month system so god willing there will be some body improvements by the end of May!

So here we are in good ole April. It’s finally starting to feel a bit like spring (although I could definitely do without the rain…yuck!). I impulse bought a chocolate lab puppy whom I named Kensington Ace or Kenzie for short. She is literally the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen but she is also a giant menace. I swear having a puppy is a thousand times worse than having a newborn baby. At least newborns can’t move around and knock lamps off of end tables, or climb onto the coffee table and drink your coffee, or chew on your shoes. Or your fingers. Or your hair. Or your curtains. I could go on forever. But goddamn, is she cute. My camera roll is just a never ending supply of puppy pictures. It was a little tricky to balance work and having a new puppy in the house, but luckily she’s adorable and I have a very helpful gran and mom who live nearby who don’t mind coming over once or twice a day to let her out of her cage for bit. Kenzie and I are still just trying to get into a nice routine – but I hope it speeds up. I haven’t had an uninterrupted night’s sleep in over 2 weeks. I think I might be dying.

On another note, I’m still seeing the same guy from January. We even spent Easter together, splitting it up by being with his family in the morning and mine in the afternoon. His family seemed to like me, and he assures me they did, so that’s definitely good. I had a lot of fun meeting them and spending time with them. He said he’s already looking forward to our families’ crazy traditions next year – so I guess he plans on sticking around. Totally fine by me. This is the first, therefore the longest relationship I’ve had and it’s shaping up to be pretty damn great.

So here we are. We made it to TODAY. April 20th, 2017. I have been feeling exceptionally down about myself, specifically my body lately. I can feel myself slipping back into bad habits and dark places. Seeing pictures from Easter was a disgusting, rude awakening that I’ve really “let myself go”. I’m trying to my hardest to make the changes I want, but not “relapse” and go back to my eating disorder. Although, in the spirit of full disclosure, it is so fucking tempting. I did weigh myself today and after a week of not gaining but also not losing, I’ve lost 3.2 pounds. Hopefully this will help me continue on my journey.

My niece Brooklyn invited me to “Special Person Day” at her preschool. I know, how freaking cute is that? My heart burst into a million little pieces. While I was there I saw that her little sister Charlotte was wearing a shirt that said “big sister”. So you know what that means! I’m going to have another niece or my first nephew to spoil by the end of the year!! I am so stinking excited and happy for my brother and sister-in-law. They’re such an adorable little family and I can’t wait to welcome a new member to it!

And that’s all folks! That’s all I’ve got for ya. Maybe I’ll do a weekly update sort of thing mixed in with all of the other stuff I tend to post on here. Who knows, really!
