Just do it.

Good morning ! As I sit hear writing this I am looking at Luther so groggy from meds, and I am so tired. Yesterday he got fixed, we were up practically all night trying to stay comfy in bed. Finally at 4AM I put him in his crate because poor thing didn’t know what he wanted.

These past few weeks have been hectic with renovating/ cleaning a new house, getting back into town, balancing clients and all that jazz. The one thing I get to do that I truly believe keeps me sane is work out!  I wanted to share with you one of my go to brands when it comes to working out!

Working out has never been my favorite thing to do, but the aspect of how it balances me out is why I do it.

Nike has been one of my favorite brands since I can remember. From their sports bras, to their shoes! I recently got these new kicks and have to say that are by far the comfiest Nike shoes I have ever owned! Their brand has always been loyal to their costumers.

With this fall coming up I am so excited for more runs and walks outside!! My routine consists of this >>> workout! I personally use the 12 week plan. I have been such a slacker lately with us being out of town and moving this month there is a lot going on. I can’t wait to get this booty back into shape and share with you all my journey from my workouts to my meals!

Hello 24! Boxy Floral Romper

Hello 24, and Hello September. It has been almost over a month since I have made a post!

Well I am a little ALOT late to the big thank yous to everyone who help celebrate my 24th Birthday last month! I am so blessed to be surrounded with such loving people. My birthday was one for the books!

Andrew took the day off and we woke up, opened gifts from him and Mr. Luther and then headed Downtown for some yummy bagels I have been wanting to try. We then spent the day majority being lazy due to the heat index being way to hot to enjoy the outdoors. We then continued our night with family and friends at The Oliver a restaurant down at the Country Club Plaza. They had amazing food, and were so kind and made me a birthday card signed by all the servers, I thought that was so sweet <3

We then headed to Mccormicks and shmitsd for a yummy dessert our friends have been talking about. THE CHOCOLATE BAG! If you haven’t had one I highly suggest it. It is life changing.

I’ve always loved a good simple chic dress perfect for any occasion. I wore this great dress for my sisters Sprinkle. I  found it for only $16.99 at TJMAXX ! They never disappoint.

Can we all say HELLO AUGUST! Dang, where has this summer went? Is it bad that I’m excited for Fall?! The combat boots, comfy sweaters and jeans! I can’t event think of fall until we get past this fun month! There is so much happening  Andrew and I are celebrating 3 years Sunday, my birthday is Wednesday the big 24! And a trip to Michigan at the end of this Month where we will see all of our family and friends. My parents just got a boat and so did Andrew’s so that called for getting Luther a life jacket and it is adorable on him! Also want to be safe since he has never been on open water! Safety first! We have such a crazy schedule on top of so many more fun things to come in September and October!

I recently came along some great new foundation and lipstick! I have been asked a a few times to share my favorite lipstick brands so I thought why not make a post soon about that! 🙂 So please stay tuned for that fun post!

5 things Luther Nash has reminded me to do

  1. Time is precious.

    It has almost been 4 months since we have brought Luther Nash home and it has gone by so fast. I always say I live day by day but in my head I really am planning for the future and sometimes thats okay but I need to live more in the moment! I have had a huge reality check these past couple months especially with how fast this summer is going by! We must enjoy the big moments in life but also the little ones! ( look how tiny he was, side note: iPhone pictures from our road trip picking him up 🙂 )

  2. Be Silly. 

    Edited (15 of 21)Being an adult can be so serious sometimes. Luther reminds me that there has to be time to play and let your energy out and just simply be silly. Sometimes you just need to sing it out in the car, (guilty) or dance in the apartment by yourself ( guilty also of). The other night Andrew and I literally where crying in bed laughing so hard at the most ridiculous video! Being silly is good for your soul.

  3. Don’t Hold Grudges. 

    c (5 of 1)I mean look at that face!? How could you ever be mad at it. There are days where I just want to pull my hair out simply because he chooses to be a little booger some days! But I can’t be mad.I am the queen of holding grudges! But I have learned to move on you must let things go your only doing it to yourself!

  4. Give yourself a break. 

    Edited (3 of 8)Life is going by so  fast, I mean look how fast this summer has already gone by! It’s a nice reminder when I see Luther laying down to just sit down and relax for a second! I am use to walks on my own but now I of course bring Luther and we haven’t quite grasped the concept of a full walk. He follows his nose, lies down in the middle of the side walk or lies down in the grass and just look at me! It’s a good reminder to just take a break and I am okay with that!

  5. Smile Often. 

    luther (9 of 17)With so much going on in this world today its hard to smile sometimes! But Luther reminds me that we have to smile even if you have to fake it sometimes ( it can have positive impact on your stress levels and your mood). Luther is always happy and showing those pretty teeth. Its a good reminder that life is too short not to smile!

No one ever said having a dog was going to be a breeze and its not! But one thing I do know is Luther has pretty cool parents and we are all he knows. As humans we have family and friends. We are literally all Luther knows ( and of course the people and other dogs we expose him to) but we are his safe place. I recently have  been realizing that with our first trip coming up where we have to leave him!

If you’re getting or thinking about getting a puppy/ dog! Do it, ( only if you’re ready for the responsibility and work) it will change your life for the better! It has made me a better person and continuing to change me in ways! I hope you all have a great Tuesday!

Big things are happening these next couple months and I can’t wait to share them with you!!! Hopefully blog to come sooner than later about it 🙂
