Your Dreams Are The Same As Mine

I thought that since I don't have anything specific to blog about today that I would do a "currently" post. I saw this on Danielle's blog months ago, and I loved the idea, so I decided to try it out for myself. It's perfect timing too because the past few months have been the most interesting I have had in a long, long time. By interesting I mean strange and unusual.

Watching: UGH. What am I not watching these days? I am pretty sure I am a reality tv junkie. I hate it so much, but love it at the same time. Trashy tv=entertainment. Even though Snooki & Jwoww is not the same as the Jersey Shore, it's still somewhat entertaining. To add to the list I have been watching old episodes of bridezillas, and sister wives too. Can't forget about the bachelorette! Who is excited for the reunion tonight?! (I don't blame you if you unfollow for this) All I am saying is she better pick Jef, he is clearly the best one on there! Some other shows I love right now are intervention, storage wars, true life, teen mom and of course awkward. (I sound like a teenage girl with that list, don't judge me).

Eating: Healthy and working out like a mad man. I feel better than I have ever felt, and making more smoothies than I ever have. Every now and then I will have a night where I don't eat very healthy but those nights are few and far between. I am more conscious about what I am putting in my body, and ultimately how I feel.

Thinking about: How much I have grown in the past few months. Some days I wake up and I feel like I have conquered so much, and other days I feel like there is SO much more to go. I am starting over in a career, and as frightening as it is, I feel like there is no better time for me to dive in.  Things haven't been easy , but I trust that the universe will work itself out eventually.

Anticipating: My trip to Minnesota in two weeks. I haven't visited my aunts and cousins in over five years, and I really do miss spending time with them. We have so much scheduled for when we go out there, and I am really happy to just get out of NJ to be honest. I need a break from life for a change. Although it's only a five day trip, I know it's going to be great to just be around all of my family. I can't wait to hug my Aunt Toni, she is probably one of my favorite people in the whole world.

Working on: New jewelry. I have been trying to update my shop for SO long and of course I am slacking as usual, but it's not all entirely on purpose. Things seem to keep piling up and although my shop is important, between work/family/blog stuff it has definitely taken the back seat. I am making new things as we speak and hope to have them up soon. I am pretty excited about some of the new designs I came up with, and I hope you guys like them too!

Wishing: That the summer wasn't going so fast. It's already mid July and I have been working almost every weekend for the past two months. I don't know where the time went, and unfortunately I think the rest of the summer will go equally as fast. It's funny how when you're younger you can't wait to get older, do things and get to the next "step" in your life...As time progresses I find myself wishing that time would slow down again, so I could stop and enjoy it for a second..Days, months, and years are all speeding past us, and I feel so rushed. I now completely understand the saying that my mom always says, "stop and smell the roses" because life happens when you're busy making plans. Each day needs to be special.

Feeling: A bit overwhelmed. I still don't know what my work situation will entail once school starts. Hospital positions can sometimes be complicated and we're not exactly sure how it's going to work yet, or whether the transition is going to be a good fit. I am nervous to be jobless, but also very excited to go to school, so I am a little confused right now. I know no matter what happens I can always get a part time job if things don't work out at work right now, but it's just another thing to think about and add to the list of stressors right now. I really wish I could take my own advice and just relax!

  20. I agree completely that the summer seems to be flying by. How is July more than half way over???

  21. I am such a sucker for anything polka dotted with a hi-low cut!!

    I recently got super motivated to work out as well. I started taking a Barre class early in the mornings and never know what to eat afterwards. What kind of smoothies do you usually have after your workouts? like a fruit shake?

    1. hi lady...this is a recipe I posted a while back, its my go -to
