Hey y’all!!! Guess who is finally back after her five month long blogging break. This girl!!! I am very happy to be back but my break was much need, though it was longer than I had expected. I had come back from my break for about a week and then decided I needed more time. I have been crazy busy over these last few months that I seriously have not had much downtime. I am proud to say though that I have been getting a lot better with organizing myself and my time. Now lets actually get down to what I was up to in March.
We are 7 months away from our wedding (well it will be on the 28th). Time has seriously flown by!! I still have a hefty to-do list but it’s mostly small things. We took our engagement photos last month and well…I didn’t exactly love them. I am very hard on myself when it comes to what I look like in photos. When I got the pictures, I didn’t think I looked the way I did. I liked about 4 photos out of 200 that we took. I will also admit that taking engagement photos is somewhat cheesy (the poses, kissing all the time). So let’s hope that I am happy with my bridals when I go to take those.
This past weekend, my bridesmaids and I found their dresses. They tried on four dresses and picked out the best one in less than an hour. Can I say…that’s amazing! I am so happy that we found a dress that fits all of their body types and they are all going to look beautiful! On Friday, I will be going to pick my dress up finally! I found it in October, and it came in last month but I haven’t been able to go get it. It’s going to be crazy trying it back on and knowing that it’s actually mine and I can take it home.
In regards to things I need to get checked off my list soon…Save The Dates are my #1 priority. I have them designed but need to do a little tweaking before having them printed out. Thankfully I previously started collecting addresses, so putting them together once printed, won’t be too bad (or let’s hope not). I really have done well with getting stuff done ahead of time but I’ll be honest that I have been freaking out lately. I’m like seven months….I need to get all this done now. I just have to keep it together. Y’all pray for me.
I have been really focusing on taking care of myself. I am currently doing a 12 week fitness challenge and I’ve really proud of myself. I thought that it was going to be much harder with having a fairly structured meal plan but I actually love all the meals. I also have found that with me working out more, I have had more energy (slowly building up). I really love that I am not as tired as I have been in the past, I just need to keep this up. That wedding dress and just being healthy in general has been a huge motivation kick. I’m down 17 lbs since October.
Work has been very busy since the beginning of the year. We have had a huge push for hiring for positions (I am in HR), so there hasn’t really been much down time. In the past typically that was a bad thing but our team has really done well with having fun and not letting it overwhelm us too much. Let’s see if that continues. Lol.
This year I have also really been focusing on spending time with my friends and family. Everything that happened in October/November, really made me think about how important making memories with your loved ones is. I would give anything to have had more time with my grandfather and to have my grandmother back to the way she used to be. Going forward, I make sure that I make even more time for the people that matter in my life (not that I didn’t before). Life is too short y’all!
Now that I am back from my break, I have some big things planned for STH. These plans will be slowly but surely happening and I am very excited for them! As far as content, I still plan on having beauty, life style and blogging tips. If there is any content that you would like to see, let me know in the comments below and I will do my best to make it happen!
I hope everyone enjoyed my little life update!! I know it was long but I figured I would let everyone know why I’ve been missing lately. Here’s to getting back to blogging!!!
What has been going on in your life lately? I’d love to know in the comments!
