Hi babes! I feel like I’ve been on break for forever now and really, it only just began today. We had so many snow days back-to-back… like Friday the 10th was the first one and the only days that school was open last week were Wednesday and Friday. Friday didn’t end up actually being a school day ( for me anyway ). A 90’s club opened on Thursday night and Alexah & I went and let’s just say it was a night I will never remember, so school was not happening the next day. We had fully intended on going, but it just didn’t happen. This week is my ‘spring’ break even though there is really nothing spring about life around here currently. The smallest snowbanks are like 3 feet tall and the path next to…

Hi hi helloooo. I survived this long weekend at work & surprisingly, I am totally READY for the week ahead. Tomorrow is my last day at the after school program – SO crazy. I’m actually not prepared to leave these kiddos. The bonds that I’ve made with so many of them mean so much to me and I’ll miss them over the summer. But with that being said, I am so ready to start summer camp for another year. It is also so crazy to me that this is my fifth year working camp for the same organization and my sixth year total working summer camps. I have Tuesday off, basically my last “day off”, minus two holidays, until August 19th. After Tuesday, we have two planning days for summer camp, Canada Day on Friday…

Can you believe that we’re one week in to June / approaching the HALF WAY POINT OF 2016?! Do you ever just sit there and think ‘where the F has time gone?’ because that’s been me since I got back from vacation. I feel like time was creepin’ along really slowly until the end of April & all of a sudden I blinked and we’re 1/4 of the way through JUNE. JUNE, people… I’m seriously having trouble comprehending this. So anyway, since we’re almost halfway done 2016, I thought what better time than to check-in on my goals that I set in January, re-evaluate, check some things off and maybe add some new goals for the end of the year… If you remember back in January, I talked about how for 2016 I wanted to focus on…

So I don’t know about you, but in the winter my motivation level for absolutely everything goes to a -10. I’m pretty good at getting things done that I HAVE to do… like homework, projects, work commitments and stuff like that but everything else like working out and taking time for myself falls to the back burner. I got a Fitbit for Christmas from Daniel and it has seriously helped my motivation SO much. It was like the third day I had it and there was a huge snowstorm. I looked at my Fitbit that night as I was getting in to bed and I had barely walked over 1,000 steps that day. By default, it wants you to aim for 10,000 steps…I’d only hit 1/10 of the steps that it wanted me to. This really made…

Hellooo angels. I’m not even going to lie, I was on Pinterest browsing for new blog post ideas… anyone ever feel completely un-inspired? I was almost near tears, sitting at work because I couldn’t think of anything to write. I said to my boyfriend “how come last week I had a million blog ideas in my head & I couldn’t blog because of school, work and other commitments, and now that I have free-time to dedicate to blogging I’m completely un-inspired?”… So, of course, as you do for figuring out anything in life, I turned to Pinterest & bam. Someone had posted about 10 ( totally random & unrelated ) things that were on their mind in that exact moment and posted it. I kind of, sort of LOVED it and here we are. Blogging…
