Getting Back on Track

Every once in a while we all fall off track of something that we are doing. We get involved in something else, or we are just having fun enjoying life in general. If you’ve fallen off track you have the tendency to beat yourself up – STOP!!  Don’t beat yourself up, it happens to the best of us.  These are a few things that I’ve been doing, because I too have fallen off track with a couple of things, but it’s time to get back on track.

Welcome Fall

hello fall

I know I’m a couple days late in welcoming fall – but I did have  Pumpkin Spice Latte on Friday to commemorate the first day of fall. After going through summers in South Carolina, you’ll be excited as I am for fall days to come. For me fall just isn’t about football games, sweaters, PSL’s, cooler days – it’s about a new season in personal growth.

During the end of the summer months, I was transitioning into my new place and determining what I want to accomplish within the next 6 months to a year. Actually sitting down and looking at mistakes that I’ve made and goals that I have met are hard and can make you emotional, but it was necessary.  Necessary to set myself up for success  – I’m 31 years old and I have so much more to accomplish in life.

My goals this season ranges from physical fitness, eating healthy, reading more, educating myself on the next step in my career, financial freedom – a little of everything. I know that I won’t achieve everything in the next 3 months, but I can start the ball rolling now.  I know that I’ve been slacking on my posting, but don’t worry it’s apart of my goals to achieve this season.

Therefore, don’t just think of Fall as the time to pull out your sweaters, Uggs and drink PSL’s. Think about the bigger picture and what you want for yourself. So that when the end of the year comes, you aren’t thinking that you wasted the months away. Now, don’t get me wrong you can still enjoy the essentials of what Fall has to offer – while still doing what you need to do to achieve greatness.

A couple weeks ago I wanted some crab legs and decided to get some from the grocery store and grab some. Let’s just say they were bomb.com

Took my mini me  back to school shopping, it still amazes me how much she has grown. I love when we spend time together – make me want a daughter – one day!

Showing off one of favorite pair of shoes to wear when I’m running errands or whatever I threw them on to run to grab pizza with my Ashley and Jace one night.

As the world knows South Carolina – Columbia to be an exact was a hot spot to see the solar eclipse. This was the only photo that I was able to take. It was pretty cool to see and experience. It was a little scary when the animals and the  bugs started going crazy once it got dark.

Let’s just say that I won’t be cooking any bacon in the oven anytime soon. It looks worse than it really is.

A couple Saturdays ago – as you know I celebrated my birthday – these were some shots from it. So thankful for all the text, emails, comments and phone calls. I felt so loved and appreciated. And yes I was extra and had a filter for my birthday!

This past weekend my college room mate and fellow Virgo sister celebrated her birthday – it was so much fun and I was happy to see her because it’s been a while since we’ve hung out together. It brought back so many memories of the good ol’ days in college! I love this black dress I wore – forever21 – great to have in the closet for unexpected nights or even when you want something classy, but fun!

Wish I would Have Known…

statehouse shoot (2 of 65)With my 31st birthday being T O D A Y – still hard to believe that I’m in my 30’s,  but none the less I’m loving every minute of it. I take everyday as a learning experience, never take a day for granted. I think of all the lesson’s that I’ve learned this far, that I wish I would have known at 25 or even younger.

If I would have known these things, I wonder how different my life would be right now. Since we can’t look into the future, nor go back – let me share a few things that may help a 25 year old woman or even a 31 year old that is still coming into her own.

Heading out of town for the weekend so I made sure that my Greens were with me!

It’s rare that my best friend and I get together without her kids – so when we get the chance we definitely enjoy ourselves with some good food, good drinks and great laughs.

Recently saw where ColaTownFoodie posted about Hampton place deli and I had to go get a Crabwich with ranch feta for lunch. I miss the good ol days of working downtown and being able to walk there for lunch.

My Day | Played Hookie

Working a 9-5, being a full time student, blogger, spending time with family and friends can wear anyone out. So I decided that I needed a break to just do whatever I wanted to. I read somewhere that playing hookie was good for the soul. If you are going to play hookie make sure you are doing exactly what Y O U  want to do and how you want do it. This was my train of thought the day I decided I needed to play hookie.

You Are a Badass | Book Review

GOVMansion(91of103)I am ashamed to say this, but I started this book in January when I was traveling to Miami. Once I got to Miami it was a done deal trying to read anything. I tried my best to pick up the book every night to read it but, it was a struggle. But I finally made it.

I will say this book is really good – certainly a page turned – some things I already knew or have heard before, but hearing it again made me think about things a little deeper.
