July was pretty damn good to me!

The highs:

  • My first visit to Texas since moving to South Carolina. 
  • I GOT ENGAGED!!
  • We took a trip to Virginia and LOVED the water park. 
  • My parents visited me on the east coast – and they’re still here! 
  • I chose and ordered my wedding dress! 
The lows: 
  • The stomach bug hit me pretty hard. Ugh. 
  • I didn’t blog near as much as I hoped/wanted to! 
  • Some frustrating work days. 

It’s pretty obvious that the good days outweighed the bad ones. And for that, I’m so thankful! I mean, if those are the only lows I had, I’ll take it! It was nice to have a really good month after so much new and uncertainty the previous months – with moving and a new job and everything. 

CURRENTLY
loving. My engagement ring. *insert heart-eye emoji* 
contemplating. What to get Cory for his birthday, but I finally have a good idea! Fingers crossed. 
smelling. The remains of my candle. It smells oh-so-good, but sadly it’s reached its end. On to the next scent! 
reading. I just finished Spying in High Heels and am ready for the next book! It feels great to get back into reading again after taking a bit of a hiatus. 
deciding. What to cook for lunches this week. 
learning. How to adjust to the million different functions at work. I’m getting there, slowly, but there are definitely a few aspects I want (and need) to improve on. 
watching. The Big Bang Theory reruns. They just don’t get old! And they’re hilarious. 
writing. Blog posts. Finally!
hating. That weekends are only two days. Honestly, why can’t we just change workweeks to four days and allow everyone to have a three-day weekend every single weekend? I’m pretty sure it would raise morale across the country. Let’s get on that, ‘kay? 
listening. I’ve been listening to a lot of Audible lately.
craving. Pizza! It’s been a while. 
planning. My wedding. Duh :). 
needing. Money. Weddings aren’t cheap! Haha.
dreading. This work week. *sigh* 
wanting. More hours in a day. Please?? There’s just so much to do!
reminiscing. About this past weekend with my parents. I am so thankful for them coming to visit me for a few days!!! And I’m cherishing every minute. 
eating. Banana chips.
drinking. Lemon flavored sparkling water. It’s my new favorite addiction – and one that’s actually good for me! WINNING. 
swooning over. My new bullet journal! *I’ll talk more about that soon.* 
feeling. Fat. I haven’t been eating well the past few weeks and I really want to lose weight – so that’s not helping. Although, I fit into way smaller dresses than I thought I would this past weekend while wedding dress shopping, and that made me feel AMAZING! So there’s that. 
working on. Our guest list. Eating better. Becoming a morning person. Consistency. The list goes on.
hoping. For stability, and soon. In so many areas.
looking forward to. Vacation this weekend!! Bring.it.on.

Lord, thank you for all that you’ve blessed me with, including the bad days. I am reminded time and time again of Your glory and how truly blessed I am. I pray for patience and for stability in the upcoming month and ask that You continue to look after me and my family. This adjustment phase has been difficult in more ways than one, but You know the strength we have to make it through. I also pray for calm and understanding as we continue to communicate in different ways, which is oh so frustrating! Thank you, Lord, for Your grand plans. In Your name I pray, Amen.
