Page 69: February Check In

What is your current favorite Instagram hashtag? Obviously, right now it’s the #xoxoselfiechallenge. We are having so much fun over there!! Go check it out. We’re making new friends and being awesome and encouraging. It’s such a fun group. And we’re only 8 days in, so far, there’s plenty of time for you to join. Here’s a link to instructions and what it all means.
Also, though, I’m obsessed with watching hand lettering videos on Instagram right now. It makes me really want to learn how to do it, myself. I get sucked into #handlettering really easily. Every day.

What was the last restaurant where you ate? …hold on. I’m thinking about it. We went to Applebee’s for Kat’s birthday but has it really been that long since I’ve been to a restaurant? Sometimes I get my brunch from Craft Coffee because their granola is bomb. IMG_6723

What was the last thing you binge watched? I wish I could say it wasn’t Keeping Up With The Kardashians but it’s still true. I’ve backed off a lot, though, because I find that after I watch that show, I put on lots of eyeliner and go online window shopping at ASOS. So I’ve been significantly limiting my TV time.

What’s your drink of choice? Last week I mixed tequilla and Naked Juice and it was completely delightful! It might be a while before I give that up. Not the cheapest cocktail but I don’t drink often, so we all win.

What are you reading?  Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. I don’t have all that much time to read lately so it’s taking me a while to get through it but that’s good. It’s important to really digest inspiration. And if you don’t have all that much time for reading but still want to learn about the creativity that lives inside of you, check out Liz Gilbert’s podcast which will really get you excited.

What was something that inspired you, today? Can I say “me” and not sound utterly conceited? But, dude, hustle begets hustle.
Also, Beyonce because always Beyonce.

What word are you overusing? “Legit”. It’s legit driving me crazy.


What is your resolution for tomorrow? Start packing décor for the move. I am a little worried that it will make our apartment look sparse and sad but at the same time, I’m feeling a little suffocated by all of the stuff. Also maybe getting the place to look a little bit more bare will help to motivate us to keep packing.


What are you looking forward to? Saturday is Galentines Day! We’re having brunch! Send me an email or a FB message if you want to come and I’ll get you the details!


How are you doing, today? It’s Monday and I’m feeling good! I have discovered that you have to strike when the iron is hot and it feels hot, today, so I’m going to get as much work done as humanly possible.

What are you doing this week?


Page 58: Checking in for January

I really love these little surveys. I also like the idea of checking in monthly. So that’s what we’re gonna do. If you love this stuff as much as I do, you should fill it out on your own blog or on Facebook (Tag me so that I see it!) or in the comments if you’d like! We’ll all check in with one another on a regular basis.

What is your current favorite hashtag? On instagram, I’m in love with #thingsorganizedneatly. It’s so calming.

What was the last restaurant where you ate? On Friday, we were trying to go to a local place but when we walked in there were no available tables and no hope of getting one–so we got a booth at the bar at Montana Mikes.

What was the last thing you binge watched? Currently watching my 4th episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, today. I really expected to hate this show but the only thing that drives me crazy is how everyone’s glasses are crooked.

What’s your drink of choice? I’m into almost only coffee lately. Cafe au lait with skim milk and no flavoring. It’s not that exciting but it’s my regular.

When’s the last time you laughed until you cried? I was driving through Wichita with Kellory and Lisa and I know that it’s the worst possible time to start laughing until you can’t open your eyes but it happened and we survived. Have you noticed how the things that make you laugh that much are not funny at all when you try to explain it?

What was something that inspired you, today? I watched the Golden Globes last night and while I’m not crazy about everything that Amy Schumer does–her hustle is inspiring to me.

What word are you overusing? “Literally”. I’ve really tried to stop using that word. Even when you’re using it with the correct definition, it’s still annoying.

What is your resolution for tomorrow? I am going to get more blog work accomplished than I did, today. Today I emphasized house work and got laid out by a headache for a little while.

What are you looking forward to? I have a few different meet-ups with friends this week. Which is super nice and a little unusual. Also next weekend we are going to see my five-year-old nephew play in a basketball game! I’m very, very pumped about that!

How are you doing, today? I’m feeling kind of blues-y lately because it’s winter time and it’s cold and leaving the house isn’t much fun. But that being said–I also feel so good lately. I’ve been sleeping better. Eating better. Feeling better in my spirit. It’s a good time of life, right now.


How about you?

Still eating on this cake. All day, every day.
