Happy Thursday, everyone! Today is feeling a little extra special, because Dane and I are on a plane to Las Vegas to celebrate my 30th birthday! I’m getting a little bit ahead of myself, but last Friday, I was laying in bed and Dane told me to turn my lamp on. Now, he has brought me coffee every single morning for years and has never once asked me to turn my lamp on, so I was really confused. The next thing I know, I can hear the Titanic theme song playing and he’s walking in with 2 giant balloons and a print-out saying we were going to see Celine Dion in Vegas! I think my heart was beating out of my chest with excitement!
In any case, I’m more than a little bit excited to be en route, but in the meantime, today on the blog I’m sharing a little bit about what we’ve been up to lately, as capture by my iPhone. If that’s something you’re interested in, feel free to stick around 🙂
Life Lately Via My iPhone
Earlier this week, we tuned into the National Championship game. Both Dane and I had some work to finish since it airs pretty early here in Hawaii, so we figured we would just have it on in the background while we finished things up on our laptop. It’s easy to see how that worked out – what a game! Hats off to Clemson for such a fabulous win!
I rarely have to look at the time in my office, because Judy and Bill do such a good job of alerting me when they are ready to be fed. They get fed in the morning and at night, so come 4PM, they are ready to chow down again. Sorry friends, you don’t eat until 5! I couldn’t resist snapping this photo of them staring at me from my office chair.
Last weekend, I finally chopped my mane! It was such a needed change and I love how fresh and healthy my hair looks now. Plus, I feel excited about styling it, not dreading it knowing it will take me an hour to get it washed, dried, brushed and styled. It’s a total win!
Bill knows he isn’t allowed in our bed, but takes every opportunity he can to sneak in and make himself comfortable. The other morning, Dane called to me and said “go look on our bed”. Bill had nudged the door open, and brought not just himself, but TWO FRIENDS into bed with him. Safe to say he was a beast to move, but I couldn’t help snapping this sweet photo of him and his life-sized stuffed friends before gently removing him.
We’ve been doing Whole30 for the past few weeks since we got home on New Year’s Eve. It was a hard adjustment period (as it always is), but it definitely forced me to try some new recipes! We loved Loaded Sweet Potato Fries from 40 Aprons, Dump Ranch from Whole Sisters, and Shrimp Egg Roll Bowls (we skipped the mayo sauce). We won’t be doing Whole30 in Vegas (sorry, but no), but we did well while it lasted.
Lots of people feel different ways about taking Christmas decor down, but personally it felt refreshing. I loved getting our “normal” space back and making way for a clean slate of 2019. I’m so excited, because we are also re-doing our living room, so stay tuned for a full reveal post.
And that’s about all I’ve got! What have you been up to lately? Were you ready for 2019? Did you ease in slowly or is January your trial month before it all really begins February 1? 😉
