Weekend Recap (Easter Edition)




Hi guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had an awesome weekend at home with my boyfriend and family. We’re finally getting warm weather so my mood was dramatically increased. I hope spring is finally here!

Friday flew by as quickly as it always does. In the morning I finished up some school work and went on a run. My boyfriend surprised me with lunch and back home we went! I went shopping with my mom (Target!) and played catch with my moms bf for a while. Me & the bf went long-boarding for a bit then I headed home for dinner. After dinner was DQ (of course) and back to his house to hang out for the night.

Saturday wasn’t too busy. I went for a long run around my neighborhood. Me & bf had California Pizza Kitchen (my fav) for lunch and had a little froyo for dessert! I made chocolate covered strawberries with my mom and went to the bf’s for dinner. Relaxation took over after that.

Sunday was rather busy (no surprise). I headed to my grandma’s around 12:30 for dinner with my family until 3pm. I ate so. much. food. We had two of everything and it was delicious. I played with my nephews (missing one of them) and ate more. Around 3 I headed over to the bf’s to celebrate with his family. I had some amazing rolls and played frisbee with his little brother before I headed back to EL.

Overall, my weekend was fantastic and I am not happy to be back to reality. I have three exams, two group projects, and two papers due in the next 8 days. Time to crank it all out!

New Year’s Resolutions

Welcome to my blog. and 2014. I’m ready to take on this New Year with hopes for the best! Here’s a few resolutions I hope to focus on during this year.



Commit to Fitness & Health

This year, I really need to be more conscious of my health. I am determined to get back on track. Eating right has always been my problem because I love food. The first part of eating healthy is cutting most gluten out of my diet. I know that eating bread & butter for a meal is so bad- but it’s so. damn. good. Also, I need to up my workout schedule, 4x a week is my new goal.


Save Money 

This won’t be too hard since I’ll be going to France in the summer for two months and I know how expensive that trip will be. If I don’t eat out as much, I will be able to save the money that I want and help with my goal of being healthy as well.

Blog More

I really love to read and write but I’m busy 24/7 with homework from my classes. My goal is to blog at least 3 times a week.
