Monday Catch Up and Confessions

I can’t believe we’re entering into the last week of April. So much for slowing down, 2017! It’s been a little while since I just sat down to write and share some random musings, so let’s play a game of Monday catch up and confessions.

| I’m not too sure what’s going on with me lately, but the self-esteem/body image issues are real in a big way. So much so that I decided to get rid of and/or sell half my wardrobe the last few months. I was either just over everything, something didn’t fit right anymore, or it wasn’t my style. That’s all a-okay until you realize that you got rid of so much that you now where the same five shirts on rotation … I’m working on it. If you missed it last Friday, I shared five recent spring style purchases.

| At any given time, one of these three albums is playing on my phone – The Search for Everything by John Mayer; Between the Pines (Acoustic Mixtape) by Sam Hunt; and The Beauty and the Beast live-action soundtrack. I. Am. Obsessed. It’s hard to get me to listen to anything else right now. (Psst – the first two are available on Amazon Prime Music).

| Ryan and I binge-watched all three seasons of The Great British Baking Show in about a month. Yes, you read that right – Ryan enjoyed a baking show as much (if not more) than me. It’s seriously fascinating. And, I have a big crush now on Paul Hollywood. Weird? Yes. Do I care? No.

| Speaking of shows, I flew through 13 Reasons Why. Except, I still have to watch the last episode. I accidentally saw some spoilers, so I know what’s coming and can’t bring myself to face it. I know that it’s just a show, but from what I’ve heard one of the scenes is pretty graphic. I’m not sure I can handle it.

| Oh, and one more note in entertainment – there might be a Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries MOVIE! I literally cheered and clapped when I saw the announcement on Facebook late last week. Time to re-watch the whole show …

| Who knew that running would become my new go-to stress reliever? I discovered a few weeks ago that I am capable of running nonstop on the treadmill. I haven’t looked back since! It’s my favorite part of the day, and it does wonderful things for me physically and emotionally.

| I really suck at putting together outfits for professional photos. We are doing an in-home shoot at the end of next month, and I just can’t get it together. Since we’ll be at home, I want it to be casual but still put together – you know? So far, I’m thinking of a light blue shirt for Ryan and me in this Gibson sweater (in grey) with jeans. Too simple? Boring? HELP ME!

Aaaaaaand, that’s it for this edition of Monday catch up and confessions. Cheers to a great week ahead!

Watch any good shows lately? Have any treadmill running tips? Are you a stylist that wants to come dress me for our photos next month? Leave me all the things in the comments!
