What I’ve Been Up to in June…


June wasn’t as crazy as May, but it seemed to zip by pretty fast–I guess that happens when you get older. First we were looking forward to vacation and then BAM it was there and done! Here’s what I was up to last month:

Reading: The Blue Castle by LM Mongomery. This was recommended on a podcast I listened to and it sounded fun, so I thought I would give it a try. I had a hard time getting ahold of it! There is only one copy at my local library and the kindle version wasn’t available…

Planning: up until the day we left I was planning dinners out and more for our 4 day vacation!

Watching: I got a free month of Netflix mostly so I could catch up on some Once Upon A Time as I never watched it before. I finished season 1, but then I had enough for awhile. I guess a little bit of fairy tales goes a long way for me? Does it get better as it goes on? I know people really love this show, but I was exhausted after the first season …

Cooking: I started baking some grain free goodies including this blender bread and this cobbler and this brownie. I was a big fan of the cobbler and the brownie. I need to try the bread again.

Eating: Well, this is more what I haven’t been eating: sugar! I stopped eating desserts at every meal, so that was a big cut right there. I haven’t been limiting my fruit though–I mean who could in the middle of summer? Berries taste really sweet to me and are low in sugar 🙂

Drinking: I have been trying to make some fruit infused water at least once or twice a week!

Pinning: grain free breakfast food–this is where I need the most help with grain free cooking because as much as I love eggs I can’t eat them every day!

Crafting: I stuck with decorating my planner and doing my nails. Simple, but fun! It’s also finally summer so I could get out all my summer stickers and my neon colored nail polish.

Dreaming: of walks on the beach. I haven’t made it to the beach yet this season and I’m missing it.

Going: To the Orlando area–that’s where we spent our weekend away. We visited the Crayola Experience and did lots of fun stuff and stocked up on crayons for what I would like to think was a few years, but will actually probably be a few months!

Feeling: like summer is speeding by way too quickly–in another month we’re back to school again! WHAT?!

Listening: The Reconstructing of Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. This was an interesting book–I don’t think I would have chosen it, but it was in the books I already had. It was a bit of a thriller, but it had a lot of language which I didn’t like. It’s based on a girl who killed herself–or did she? Exploring her life the few months before it ended and including texts, emails, facebook, school, and home is what the book is all about.

Celebrating: Our ten year anniversary! I can’t believe its been that long already…where does the time go?
