Saturday Thoughts from a Remiss Blogger

Hi there.

I'm popping in on this steamy Saturday morning (the temps are reaching 94°F today...yuck!) after nearly two months of quiet.

The past eight weeks or so have been busy, busy, busy, and so full of change!

Here's what's been happening.

I moved out of the Bachelorette Pad and into the Woodland Cottage.
Au revoir, Bachelorette Pad!

Meaning cohabitation (also meaning my Catholic parents were super not cool with this, just incase Pope Francis reads this or whatever, I feel like their disapproval should be in writing). 

Also, for the record, I love Pope Francis and his photo is on my fridge. 

Living with Adam has been amazing. I mean this when I say life is easier and happier. He packs my lunches. He cooks us dinner each night. We tackle the household chores and caring for our dogs as a team. 

And most importantly, after a long day at work, there is someone you can hug the second you walk through the door. 

I look a girls trip with my mom, aunts, and cousins to Madison, Wisconsin. We probably laughed from the moment we hit the road that Friday morning to the second we got home Sunday night. 

I've been able to work in a lot more time on my second novel. I'm so darn proud of it. I only wish there were more hours in the day I could spend on it.

I've started doing a bunch of different workout classes at our company gym, even classes I was afraid of, like Strength Training and Cardio High Intensity Interval Training. Guys, I have MUSCLES now! 

Adam built us a bookcase and a bed. Because he is THAT super-fantastic. 

We have a summer of travel ahead, including THE LAKE WHERE DIRTY DANCING WAS FILMED next week (this is also known as Lake Lure in North Carolina) and then Seattle and Portland, Austin, and Michigan. 

I read Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened (and think she's one of the most hilarious people ever now), but haven't had much time for reading otherwise. Again, I'll refer to my wish that there were just more hours in the day. 

We celebrated Clementine's 1st Adoptiversary. I love her more than ever with her cloudy eyes and short, little legs.

Life is good.
