Reading  Still haven't been reading much at all, besides some blogs. I started reading Wildwood by Colin Meloy a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't touched it since! I did go check out it's sequel, Under Wildwood, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, from the library this week though. I guess that mean's I had better get on it!
Writing  This post, mostly. I've had a couple of ideas for new posts bouncing around, but I haven't put those thoughts into text yet. I'm hoping to soon though! I also plan on re-writing my About page soon. I just think I could do it better, you know? So that is definitely on my list.
Listening  The same old stuff, it seems like. I have just about burned out my playlists on Spotify though, so I'll be on the hunt for some new tunes! Or maybe some old ones that I haven't heard in a while. Also, I guess I should also mention that I learned to rap word for word along to "Thriftshop!" I know, it's ridiculous, and it drives Dane crazy because it is so overplayed! Then you throw me in, rapping it to myself constantly throughout the day, and he's had just about enough, ha!
Thinking  About my upcoming trip to Idaho! I'm so happy to be going home for a little while. Five months is just so long to go without being there! I've seen my parents a couple times in those five months, and a couple of my sisters got to stay about a month with me, but there's lots of other people I haven't seen. Especially my bestie! I'm coming Kayla, you'd better be ready!
Smelling  Fresh air. It has been so nice out lately, I've been opening my house up. I love it when I finally get to air out the stale old winter air! It's so, so refreshing! I feel like this is one of the nicest end-of-winter seasons we've had since I've lived here!
Wishing  I was in a little better shape. The worst part about not working out, is how hard it is to get back into it! You would think that I would use that motivation to always stay active but, for some reason, that's not the case. A year ago, I ran a ten mile race. This week, my lungs are burning after running for ten minutes. It's not good, people! It's not good.
Hoping  I don't pig out too badly today. We're having our first barbecue of the year with my in-laws, and it's going to be delicious! Luckily, I can have lots of veggies, and I'm sure there won't be a shortage of those.
Loving  My first pedicure of the new year! I've been terrible about doing my nails (fingers and toes) for a while now, and I've been craving some pink! So, as you can see, I busted out my Spring colors, and jazzed them up a bit! I forgot how much more I love my feet when they are all cute and colorful.

Mint Apple nails!

Wanting  To be seeing some results already!. I've started eating better and working out, and week one yielded no losses. I'm bumming hard! Well, maybe not that hard, but it's a little discouraging to feel like you did everything right, and see nothing for your hard work. Oh well, I feel better physically, so that's a huge plus, and hopefully this week will be better. I've already planned some tweaks to my diet, so wish me luck!
Needing  To be drinking more water! I make sure I have some everyday, but I know I'm coming nowhere near what I should be. I need to start carrying my trusty water bottle with me everywhere again, and see if that helps.
Feeling  Pretty tired! Losing that precious hour of sleep in the Spring always does me in! Coupled with the fact that I already had a late night, means that I didn't get up early enough to run this morning before getting ready for church. I'm going to have to try to fit it in later today, which will be challenging. And as for being tired, well, I'm sure it will even out soon. I just plan on hitting the hay early tonight!
Clicking  On this. If you are not familiar with Buzzfeed, you should be! I found this on Pinterest, and I just died! I literally had tears! My stomach hurt so, so bad, but it was so worth it. In fact, after writing this, I think I will go look at it again! The Google one is the best, hands down! Or, you know, all the way down....


Also, I just had to share. This is what my camera kept doing to me while taking these photos! Stupid camera! (The grass looks neat though)




Linking up with Lauren! Now you should too.

    1. I know, it's been so nice! I'm hoping this weather sticks around, but we usually end up with another cold/rainy spell in March/April!

  2. I love throwing open the windows on warm days like today! That refreshing breeze that works its way through the house is just so so nice. Also loving your nail polish color! It's fun to break out the colors and celebrate the spring. :)

    1. Thank you! I love them too, plus they were dirt cheap! Walgreens carries this brand and sometimes has them on sale for .99 cents!

    1. Yes, it really is! Actually, I forgot to say that I did my toes myself, but I plan on treating myself to a professional pedi sometime before sandal season really starts! :)

  7. I so hear you on the wishing part... I used to be so fit, now I get winded waling up a hill, lol. Thanks for your input on my post! I'm curious to hear more about what your doing in regards to strength training. I know I need to start that myself. Seeing as you are young and determined, I have no doubt you will look awesome by the time it's warm enough to wear that bikini!

    1. Well, I've never looked good in a bikini, but I'm going to try! Ha! Mostly I'm doing stuff I find off of Pinterest. I've been thinking about doing a post about it one of these days, so I guess I should and that will hopefully answer your questions! It's nothing too intense, so we'll see, I may have to increase some stuff :)

  8. yay for trips home! i'm going to my hometown in may, & by then, it will have been four months since i've been there. i've only seen my parents & sister twice in that time, so i know i'll be extremely excited for my trip by the time it arrives!

    good luck with getting back into working out - justin & i have been getting back into it, & we both feel SO much better. it's SO worth it.

    i love your mint apple nails - so pretty! i need to get that color.

    1. Thank you, I love the color too! It's not one I wear a lot, but I thought it was perfect for Spring!

      And yeah, it really is worth it, even if I don't look as "good" as I hope, at least I'll know I feel better :)

    1. Oh I agree! They are super yummy, but we ended up with steamed veggies, and grilled pineapple! Which is one of my favorites :)
