Tid + Bits of LIFE❤

Even though we have so many changes and transitions going on right now, we are not letting that stop us from enjoying as much as we can of summer! Trevor has been working full time and studying for the Bar, which has been really hard because I feel like I hardly get to spend any time with him. With that said, he has been really good at utilizing his time and has been great about trying to make time for us when he can. He will surprise me with a fun date, and have something planned for when he is done studying for the night and I really appreciate that. The other day we went to breakfast at the Original Pancake House, and it was nice to just reconnect again after a long week of studying and working. We also recently attended a wedding of one of Trevor's childhood friends. Can I just say how much I love going to weddings? I love the celebration of love! It always makes me think of my wedding day, which was the best day ever, so I am always in a great mood at weddings. I also don't mind seeing my husband all dressed up ;)

With both of us working full time while in the middle of moving, time hasn't been on our side. We have been eating out way too much, so I have really been trying to get back on track and make dinner at home. Often when trying to eat healthy we stick to the same things and Trevor can get really bored with it. I have been having fun trying to create new and different meals. I like recipes that are quick and easy, but also healthy. Speaking of eating healthy my new job might be the death of me. Don't get me wrong, I have been loving my new job, the only problem is they always have food around! This is not going to be good for my waist line if I am not careful. But who can pass up a doughnut on National Doughnut day? Plus, it matched my outfit.

I have been working on balance in my life. Work and play are both very important! I have been enjoying making more intentional time with my friends and loved ones. Even something as simple as a dinner date and a great conversation with a girlfriend can make everything right in your world - Thanks Katie ;) I also spent the afternoon with my kindred spirit Miss Tearsa. I don't know how it started but since I met her way back when we were just immature sixteen year olds I have always called her that. Things have sure changed since then - Tearsa has the most adorable son, and has a little girl on the way! I am so happy that we live so much closer now. We plan on having lots of hang outs. Over the weekend she brought Terrin down and we had lunch and went swimming. Time with Tearsa is always a good time, but Terrin obviously had most of our attention. He is the CUTEST thing, and we had fun doting on him in the pool. I love having such a good friend live so close :)

  1. Sound like you've been really busy, ahaha! I'd definitely recommend looking on Pinterest for recipes or cooking ideas. I've found a few easy ones there. (: Good luck!


  2. Balance is something I'm always working on too--but you're right, penciling in time with friends and loved ones is important and makes all the difference!

  3. It will get better in August once Trevor is done with the bar and also once you are all unpacked. Hang in there! Excited to see you in a few weeks :)

  4. Pinterest is always my place to go for great recipes. I love the pictures!
