Monday Madness 8.8.16

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a beautiful Monday!

It's been awhile since I've done a life lately update. I can't say I've had an overly exciting summer, but here goes anyway...

Today marks the start of my FIFTH WEEK at my new job! I've been working a pediatrics office about 5 minutes from my house. I'm happy to say that I know the lay of the land and feel really comfortable in my new role. Plus, I get to can come home for lunch!

A couple weekends ago Nick's younger brother Ben and his wife Meghan came to visit from Oregon. My sister in law Meghan is seriously one of my BFFs. Not only did I get to spend time with her, but also Nick's other brothers' kids. We went kayaking, hung by the pool, and had a nice BBQ. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures. Womp, womp.

I've been reading a lot in my free time this summer. I've gotten through some really great books. I plan to highlight my summer reading list later this month.

I've also been working on trying to get my Younique business up and running. I'm a really terrible sales person, but I really believe in and use the products. I'm asking you all to help me out... please, please, please let me run a Facebook party for you! You can earn free makeup!

So JoJo picked Jordan this summer which made for lame season. Love her ring, but don't see the relationship lasting.

I'm in total Olympic mode. My favorite Olympic moment so far as been Andy Murray leading TeamGB into the Opening Ceremony.

Speaking of tennis... Nick and I head to Cinci in about a week and half for the Western & Southern Open! Can't wait for our summer getaway, to spend some time together, and watch some awesome tennis!



  1. So jealous you're heading to Cincy for the W&S Open! I used to go to that every year but now it's such a hassle making it up there. Happy Monday! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. I'm pretty jealous of the live tennis you are going to see - it's my favorite sport!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I'm so glad you are enjoying your job! :)

  4. Sounds like you've been busy with all good things! It's always fun when visitors come over and you get to do fun local things :)

  5. I'm in total Olympics mode too, bring it all on the next 2 weeks! And LOL at Jojo picking Jordan which made for a boring season. I definitely could tell she was smitten by him from night 1 and none of the other guys stood a chance. Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

  7. I always feel like I fail to take pictures when we're with Chris's family too! It just means that we're having a really good time, right? And hooray for all things Olympics! We had such a blast watching it all weekend long!

  8. Your trip to Cincy sounds so fun! I have The Perfect Neighbors on my NetGalley list-did you like it? :) So glad you are loving your new job!

  9. Jojo's ring was a favorite of mine, too! It is gorgeous - I am hoping they make it work even with the odds stacked against them. Living close to work is the best - glad to hear your new job is going well!

  10. How great to be able to go home for lunch!! I would love that. Have a fun trip!! - Crystal

  11. I keep adding books to my "books to read" list but none of them have been read yet! I have been so busy and just haven't had the time to read. Bummer! I loved watching Lilly King last night...she is amazing!

  12. I love the olympics so much too!! I can watch it all day! I don't think Jojo and Jordan will last at all either, but her ring was stunning!

  13. Working 5 minutes from home sounds like one of the best things ever! Glad the job is going well so far.
