Memorial Day Recap

  Hi Loves! Hope everyone had a fun Memorial Day and enjoyed the long weekend. I sure did! Between all the fun activites from the weekend and the extra time off I was able to get more and more packing accomplished for the big move.

My weekend consisted of a cousins HS graduation, little sisters softball tournament, church & Sunday dinner with Reid's family, pooltime, and lots of food with the fam. I find it harder and harder to get back on the diet and excersise wagon after being out of my routine for 4 days! Hope I'm not the only one with that problem :(  Today I should receive a little surprise in the mail ordered by moi of course, but I can't wait to share with you all tomorrow!  Ok well I better go ahead and share today because with a code you can get 50% off today only! Check out Maybooks for precious planners, notebooks, meal planners, etc. You can customize to make it the cutest little notebook around. I ordered just a notebook to catch all my thoughts(scary I know) but I'm considering ordering a meal planner book today with the code.  If anyone is interested use the code: gma and receive half off! Happy Shopping!

Closet Drama

 Well I've come to the conclusion that I am in fact some sort of a clothes/shoes/accessory hoarder. Until I started packing & cleaning out, I never realized how much stuff I really have! As most of you don't know, I currently live with my sister who is 21. We've decided to get our own place and give each other space. It's def bittersweet but much needed. Currently, I have a closet big enough to put a twin bed in. Seriously I do! However, in the new place its about half the size. So.....looks like I have to downsize or find a new way to become very efficent in my organizing. Here is what my current closet looks like and please excuse the mess! I've started packing shoes and handbags already.

Currently I have a few ideas of what I could do about this problem:

1. Go on a clean out streak. Sort through some things I don't need anymore.
2. Store off season attire in my storage closet that is inside my garage. But then I worry about it being stored in a non airconditioned enviroment.
3. SHOES.....heres the real problem. I know it doesnt look like it from the pics but that's because most are already packed. Not all of my shoes will fit on my shelves at the new place.
4. I've already bought a new belt holder and I have a necklace holder built by the one and only, Reid! So accessories are covered.
5. I plan to buy more shelving to add a second row in the closet.

I would love to hear some great storage tips, organizing ideas, etc. I need all the help I can get! This is the most stressful part about moving for me! Sad I know.....

Weekend Photo Dump

  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend & got rested up for another hectic week! I sure did!

Friday Night we had date night with my sis and her bf at one of my fav places, Cantina Laredo! Theres nothing more that makes me happy than dinner on a patio with great friends and yummy drinks ;) I'm trying to take advantage of this while the weather is nice. By June, patios will be unbearable here in the South.

 Saturday was the first "lazy" day we've had in 11 months! Crazy I know this because thats how long the bf and I have been together. Started off with breakfast & mimosas, Target shopping, & ended at the pool! Ahh I finally got my "Vitamin D" fix.

After a much needed nap(which is rare for me), I woke up to Reid preparing dinner. Isn't he a sweetie??? I love days like Saturday. No plans, no schedule, and no makeup!

After church on sunday, I prepared Sunday dinner as usual. I tried a new recipe from the Food Network and it was delish. Sorry I forgot to take a pic. However, I made a few changes to the recipe. I used whole wheat pasta instead, added chicken and pasta sauce. If your looking for a healthy yet delish new pasta recipe, check it out!

Wheeww!!! I seriously did not think I would make it to Friday....loonngest week of my life. I've been stuck in training all week & away from the office. Next week I'm headed to Houston for work. Gahh things must slow down soon.

Moving on....I'm linking up with A Blonde Ambition for Confessional Friday!

1. My breafast consisted of a taquito and Easter candy this morning....in my little mind I'm thinking "Oh well its Friday."

2. Slowly, I'm turning into a wine-o. The first thing I do when I get home is turn on my wine chiller....not good for the bod. Hey it keeps me sane!

3. As you all know, I've traveled more this year for work already than any year. Of course every trip has consisted of more shopping than I have any business doing. Headed to Houston next week and the Galleria is the 1st stop!!!!

4. Because I've been bored to tears in training this week, social networking of all kinds has become my newest obession. Instagram, twitter, facebook, pinterest, blogging....you name it!

5. Have no clue why but I've been such a sensitive Sally this week.....poor Reid!

6. I've currently got roots like nobodys business but they will be good as new by noon! I never thought the day would come where I didnt have time for a hair apt....sad sad day :(

7. Pinky promise I will be better at blogging next week. I sure have missed it dearly!

Have a good weekend!

Happy Thursday......I'm linking up with Amber and Neely for one of my favorite link up! I get to confess and make it ok all @ the same time :) This week has been absolutely crazy so here we go:

-I depart my house in less than 24 hours for a week & haven't packed a thing

-Workouts haven't happened any this week....But I've been getting in late due to work!

-A 2 page list of "Things to Plan & Do" is created but have zero time for anything extra in my life right now.

-Currently I'm having a pitty party for myself because I feel as if I put my plans/"me" time on hold for everyone else.

-Diet & Fitness is my main focus at the moment but I kiinndaa had chinese food and wine with a girlfriend last night!

-The littlest things are getting to me right now.....ex: my sisters left overs in the fridge(almost 2 weeks old bday cake)

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far!

May Go For the Goal

                                                                       May Goals

Today I'm joining Lori for the May Go For the Goal link up party! I love to set new goals because even if I dont meet the previous months, I get to start fresh & well that always gives a boost to my feelings. I decided to cheat a little and scribble my goals in my Erin Condren planner so I'm going to share that way!

1. Since I've signed up for the half marathon in November, I decided its time to add on to my run. Baby steps....

2. Most of the time I'm a fanatic about my face but since I've been soo busy lately, I'm guilty about skipping my nightime facial routine. I'll pay for it later so guess I should get back into the habit.

3. Mrs. Beth(Reid's mom) gave each of the boys and girlfriends a devotional book for Christmas and we promised to finish it & I'm going to keep that promise.

4. June 22 is the big day! I will be testing to acquire my PHR Certification. Coming home from work and studying just doesnt sound fun but hard work will hopefully pay off!

5. Since I'm always on the go during the week, it's so hard to come home and cook dinner for party of 1. I know eating out isnt good for my diet or bank account.

6. Reid and I have been up in the air for a while now on vacation plans. He hasn't had a vacay in about 2 years now & well I can't say the same but it's overdue for me too. The beach is def calling our name :)

Looks like I've got a full month ahead of me so I better get busy!

What are you goals for May?
