Life Lately

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I'm sorry I've been so MIA but life has been a little cray for the past few weeks. The end of the school year is always a busy time and I swear when Mark is gone, I'm even busier spending time with girlfriends. I'm SOOO glad it's Friday because some of my friends are coming to visit me! YAY! I love showing people around this city that I love so much.

I have been berry obsessed lately! The picture above isn't mine but how good does that fruit salad look?? I have been getting great strawberries and blueberries from Target lately. I usually get all my produce from Trader Joe's but I randomly got some from Target and WOW so good!

I miss my hubby so much but I am also grateful for girlfriend time. Last weekend I had a blast with these ladies! I love them!!

I have found some really cute things at Old Navy lately and this shirt is my fave! So cute!!

ignore the mess in the background lol

Baby- wise: things are still the same... not pregnant. We have been continuing with medication and IUIs and this month will be the 4th time for the procedure. Just waiting for my body to cooperate. If you feel inclined, prayers would be very much appreciated, especially this upcoming week! I'm still hopeful but also extremely worn out from the process. It's basically a part-time job with all the doctor's appointments lol. I wish someone would pay me for this! It will all be worth it though :)

I have been on a major reading kick. I find myself reading or listening to audiobooks almost every chance I can get. I love how books can take you to a totally different place and allow you to "escape." Some of my scary books don't really allow me to escape, but they are just so dang interesting that I can't stop reading them. I'm in the middle of Paula Hawkin's new book, Into the Water. So far, I'm not loving it. I can't keep all the characters straight and I just don't understand where it's heading. Maybe that's the point? I'm not sure.

I also just finished, Same Beach, Next Year by Dorothea Benton Frank. This is more of a mindless read, not to offend any of her fans! It just doesn't spark my interest like the thrillers I'm normally into, but I enjoy the lightness of it. This one didn't have much of an in-depth story line because it spanned over 20 years or so. It's a great beach read if you're looking for something for your next vacation. I posted some of my fave beach reads last year in this post.... check it out if you need some ideas.

I've been really trying to get back into my workout routine. After the IUI's I can't workout for the two weeks in between when I find out if I'm pregnant or not, so that makes my routine come to an abrupt halt. I still try to go on walks and do light weights but I'm not supposed to raise my body temperature at all... that's hard to stop when I'm used to Orange Theory lol. I put my OTF account on hold for the last two months and started back last week. WOW, that was a rude awakening... I am so incredibly sore. I still really love it!

I've also been trying to squeeze in the Tone It Up workouts. I like these because they aren't too time consuming and can be done at home.

I'm looking for new book recommendations. I feel like I am in a rut with picking the same kinds of books. So let me know if you've read anything good lately! Have a great day!
