Currents in my life that I'm working on and loving lately!
Reading: 31 prayers for my future husband - you read a short prayer and it also leaves you space to write your own prayer afterwards. It's super personal and gives me a chance to reconnect to God in the morning and pray for our future family and marriage. THAT is where I want my focus to be right now and I feel more centered when I make time for devotions.
Focusing on... family and each other. I'm really loving LISTENING to one another, slowing down, spending quality time and doing activities just the three of us.
In Wedding Planning... we are kinda in a lull! One month out is going to be nuts...right now we are counting down and are 67 days away! This week I'm meeting with the florist for the corsages for the women and my bridal bouquet. Also going to do some flowers for the personal attendant's hair... I actually made the bridesmaid bouquets and the men's boutineers. I have four left to make and of course to make something for Hank to put on his collar too!
This week I've also just been organizing my thoughts done on paper (aka Google Docs) writing out what I can't forget to bring...itinerary for the week of... etc!
Sippin' on... these Smirnoff Selzer Drinks. Loving the Orange Mango flavor! I also had my first jalapeno margarita experience last weekend...yum! Anyone else love the sweet and spicy? My friend Jen makes the best margaritas and I loved her spin on this one!
Thoughts on Fitness... doing what feels good lately - which that has been a longish run each week (5-7 miles) about 2 at home 20-30 minute workouts, and one other run/gym workout thrown in there somewhere too! There is a new program out with Beachbody next week that is a four day a week program and 20 minutes each workout in a high intensity interval style - excited to check it out! Curious...are you an at home workout person or gym person or both?
New Adventures and Experiences... Tonight I'm headed to a ladies night at the Shooting Park! It's an intro to shooting sports so we get to try out different guns and also drink wine! Headed there with a couple coworkers and excited and nervous to try something new!
In Puppy Parenting Life... Hank is now 6 months! And B has pulled his "puppy pass" and training has begun! He is a mix of naughty...lazy...and crazy! He LOVES being at the lake this summer and has finally figured out how to jump off the dock to retrieve his duck! B has some awesome video of it too. I have a feeling a majority of their evenings are going to be spent outside in the back yard training!
Eating... We've been eating a lot of fish around here! And I'm not complaining. Keeping meals super simple! Fish on lavash wraps with greens, onions and guac for fish tacos is always a win. Also been keeping summer salads on hand in the fridge as an easy side! Cauliflower ceviche from the grocery store is one of my new favs. Also made a big batch of potato salad and bought a few bags of chopped salad mixes! Our favorites include Taylor Farms Buffalo Ranch and the Dole Brand Cheddar Chipotle!
Wearing... I'm seriously in love still with my Lulu Lemon Align Leggings! Also just bought three new pairs of sweatpants because B was seriously sick of mine. Got a couple nike pairs and also a pair of Under Armour ones that are super soft and comfy! Also been obsessed with browsing for cute wedding event dresses...anyone have any favorite shops for that?
Shopping for... wedding gifts for the wedding party and our parents...I'm OBSESSED with browsing Etsy and the Jane app for the perfect gifts... What did you give to your family on your wedding? Have you tried the Jane app? You might be "sorry" I told you about it... ha!
What are YOUR current favs??
