Friday Confessions

Hi friends! Happy Friday. Another week almost over…sheesh! I am not sure where June is going but I want summer to slowww down.  Why does the best time of the year always have to go by the fastest? Why why why? Well, I truly haven’t had a chance to write since my last post, so I wanted to try and squeeze a quick post in before the weekend, I have lots to share!

1)Post-wedding depression is a real thing.
I’ve heard about the post-wedding blues before but I never thought much of them. Now I totally get it. I wasn’t even the bride and my sister’s wedding being over and done with has seriously depressed me. I think it’s the long-awaited anticipation and build-up of such a fun, life-changing event suddenly being over that’s the culprit of it all. The day after the wedding, we all had the post-wedding wedding blues, that’s for sure. In the last couple weeks though, one thing that’s helped cheer us all up is catching some glimpses of  the professional wedding photos. (This is just a Facebook peek, but it’s so cute) LOVE!

2)I’m beginning to think I have a serious ice-cream problem.
Last week, I ate ice cream for dinner twice, and this week I’ve had a cone every day for the last four days; whoops. I wish I could say I was sorry but…I’m not.

3)I am 100% positive my hair has never been this long.
Originally I was growing my hair out for the wedding, but now that it’s over, I’m not sure what to do. Keep it long? Chop it off? I’m liking it long but goodness gracious it’s a pain in the heat. Suggestions welcome!

4) Everyday is a gift
I’m trying to remember this each and every day, especially when I’m feeling down about something or defeated. One of my closest friends was recently in a horrible car accident and although she was injured and suffered a terrible wrist-break among other things, she is thankfully on the road to recovery and is SO optimistic and up-beat. Having dinner with her this week put it all in perspective.  Everyday is truly a gift. I love you, Tiff!

5)These are the best cookies ever.
No joke, I made a gluten-free Almond Butter Chocolate-Chip Cookie recipe last week and the entire batch was gone in 2.5 days (thanks mostly in part to me). I’ll share the recipe next week!

6) Whenever I am feeling unmotivated to work out, new clothes always help.
I’ve been loving outdoor running over the last month, but lately it has been feeling harder and harder  to get motivated in the morning. A new top and new sneakers did the trick. (Thanks to my love for the shoes, and to Nike outlet for an amazing deal!)

7) I just love my Dad( s )
Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dad’s out there this weekend, especially mine.  I am so grateful for you each and everyday. And to my second Dad, too! I am so blessed to have you in my life!
