#TGIT – Are y’all gearing up for a long fun weekend? I’m currently wrapping up my last week of school before heading off to Colorado tomorrow! We’re going up to Winter Park and staying in a cabin with my siblings and I cannot wait. I have been to Colorado many times but never up to Winter Park. I’m looking forward to some quality time in the mountains with a few of my favorite people. I’ll also get to see my grandparents this weekend and meet my new cousin Bea. It’s going to be a good one, I can just feel it :)
I was inspired by another blogger’s Friday Five series sharing 5 favorite things they’re loving right now and I thought I’d start a Thursday Three with mine:) With summer approaching and my schedule changing, I’ve been focused on enjoying each moment as is. Especially my me time. I know that freedom will change shortly so I’m living in the moment.
So here are three things I’m loving about life right now:
Morning Blog Reading + Coffee:
I don’t know how much you guys enjoy your little routines but I live for a few of mine. Getting up and having that first cup of coffee while catching up on blog work gives me a new positive outlook for each day and I love every second of it. After reviewing what work I need to get done and making a game plan for the week, I hop on over to a few of my favorite blogs to get some inspiration. Gal Meets Glam gets my travel bug itching. I love her beautiful photos, writing, and of course, gorgeous floral clothing. Carrie Bradshaw Lied is another personal favorite and her writing cracks me up. She has such wit and so much personality. Livvyland is a local blogger in Austin and her site is almost too dangerous for me to check out. I want everything. And last but certainly not least is Sequins and Stripes, a blogger from Chicago who is a mom and expecting another little one this fall. You can imagine how inspiring she is to follow! Reading other people’s blogs is a great way for me to envision new possibilities for my blog. I always get motivated and inspired.
Shoe Crushin’ :
I’ve always been a simple gal when it comes to shoes with only a few pairs in my name, but shortly after I became a blogger and followed many others, I developed a dangerous shoe crush. There are too many fun booties, lace up heels, comfy flats, and adorable wedges, not to fall in love with a few items each season. Here are a few pairs I’m totally swooning over:
Are you ready for me to be a total cheeseball? As much as I love my “ME” time, I also love my “E” time (as in time with Eric)… Lately we have been cooking together, finding movies and shows we both enjoy, and planning adventures for this summer while it’s still the two of us and the pups. Eric and I have never been ones to really relax and sit on the couch. It’s taken a lot of effort for us to slow down but it was a necessary effort. Sometimes you need moments to catch your breath. We were go-go-go in Chicago and even when we moved here, we felt we had to get out and take Austin by storm to get acclimated to the city and make new friends. And yes, maybe we did need to do that (and we sure loved it), but now we’re focused on saving money, saving our energy, and really enjoying some quality time just the two of us. And it’s been really fun.
What are some things you’re loving about life right now?!
I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, weekend!
