Oh, hey there everyone! So, after mid-June, I just decided to take the rest of the month off. I have to say, I really enjoyed it. I liked taking a break in the middle of the year. I was starting to get burned out on blogging and when that starts to happen, it's best if I just take a step back. And I totally agree with what Aimee said in one of our recent e-mails together, "I'm a firm believer that life is for living and sometimes blogging, not vice versa." Couldn't have said it any better! Now, July is one of my favorite months of the year! It contains my favorite holiday, Independence Day aka The Fourth of July. I love the cookouts, the drinks, and of course, the fire in the sky. Fireworks are one of my most favorite things. What better time of the year to come back? Here's what I'm up to right now, before my favorite holiday commences.
Watching: We all know by now that I'm a movie and TV junkie right? Okay, so here it goes. At this very moment I am watching Pitch Perfect. How it's possible that I still don't own this movie, I'm not sure. But, I DVRed it the other day so I can watch it every day. Mainly for this beautiful reason. You're welcome. Also, Pretty Little Liars is back and I make no apologies for liking that show. Although, I'm about done making new theories, because they just get crushed. I also finally saw The Lone Survivor. And if you haven't seen that movie yet, you need too. Based on the unbelievable true story of Marcus Luttrell, an ex-Navy Seal who was the sole survivor of his group when on a mission.
Eating: Delicious chicken salad from a local deli. I'm also considering trying my hand at making an apple pie for this weekend. Appropriate don't ya think?
Drinking: Water, water, everywhere. For some reason lately, I started having an affair with Diet Coke. But, that has quickly ended. Also, nothing screams summer like lemonade!
Reading: I'm such a slacker when it comes to reading sometimes, you guys. Still reading these three: Believing God, The Hobbit, and What Color is Your Parachute. When it comes to quiet time, I'm completing the She Reads Truth study on Titus and looking to start the Ruth study! I'm really enjoying Titus and I've only heard great things about the Ruth so far!
Working On: Job hunting and job applications. I was this close to a full-time job and all that comes with it. But, it ended up not working out and I'm back at square one.
Excited About: The 4th of July holiday and all things red, white, and blue! Also, I'm going to try my best at completing this challenge for the month of July. Anybody want to join in with me and be my accountability?
Wishing: That I could take a trip to somewhere. I'm having serious travel withdrawals and want a new adventure.
Listening To: Phillip Phillip's newest album, Behind the Light and this acoustic version of one of my favorite Needtobreathe songs, Multiplied. Also, TED talks on psychology. It's a subject that fascinates me.
Happy to be back, friends! Hope you have a wonderful start to July!
