Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I'm closing out this month's blog posts with some Friday Favorites - just a few of my favorite "life" things going on as of late. You may or may not have noticed, but I've kind of slowed down on my blog posts this month. I feel like I've gotten to the point that I choose quality over quantity and real life over internet life. Sometimes I just don't have anything to write about and other times I don't have the time to sit on my laptop and put a post together and that's OK! It is actually kind of freeing to take that pressure off of myself. I don't HAVE to get three posts up every week, and honestly, I'm probably the only one that notices if I don't! Putting my phone down and having a real life conversation always trumps an Instagram DM am I right?!

That being said, June has been such a fun and crazy month! A lot has happened in a short amount of time. I seriously can't believe that we're deep into summer already - football season and fall will be here in the blink of an eye. The older I get the more time flies and it is such a gentle reminder to appreciate where I am at in life and take time to enjoy the little moments.

I've been hard at work teaching Beyond 500 Classes and have recently starting taking Pilates classes. I was not expecting Pilates to make me as sore as it does haha, it feels so good to be sweaty and sore again.

I did a collaboration with a few other local bloggers and had so much fun! I think one of my favorite things about blogging is all the friends I've made! Hi, Courtney!

A.W. Photography Bridal Shoot

I got to put my wedding dress on and model for a bridal shoot with A.W. Photography. It was so fun! And the dress still fit!! ;)

Humble Donut Co. opened in OKC! So much YUMMMM! I really loved the donut with bacon bits on top!

I got a new car!!!!!! I've never known love like this before - ha! I drove my old Toyota truck for half my life (seriously); I had wanted a 4Runner for years and years and I'm so happy that I finally got one!

office decor

I got a promotion at my real job and a new office with a giant window. I'm feeling like I made it in life!

the jones assembly latte

We brunched for our anniversary - did you know The Jone's Assembly can put any image you want on a latte?! Now you do.

aunt and baby

I became an aunt! Meet Little Miss Stella Kay Martin.

faux shiplap

We re-did our sunroom (still in progress) with new floors and faux shiplap walls. All that is left is a coat of white paint and it will be complete! It already feels SO MUCH cuter and cozier now. Shout out to my dad for coming into town to do all the manual labor :) if you would like to see a full blog post with before/after pictures and faux ship-lap instructions let me know in the comments.

emotional support dog

I had my gallbladder removed on Wednesday. After a long battle with digestive issues and a few gallstone attacks it was due time. I was not sad to see it go but I am sad about the incision through my belly button. Maybe one summer I'll have abs again, but it won't be this summer. Womp womp. Chloe girl takes her job as an emotional support dog VERY seriously - two days later and she still hasn't left my side.

best travel buddies

Oh, and we also went to Santa Fe for our anniversary and Nashville for a work trip and went on several blog sponsored date nights to restaurants in town. The best! I'm counting the days until my next trip in September with some blogger friends. Yay!!

Have you been up to anything fun lately? What does your weekend entail? I am still pretty fresh out of surgery so I'll be spending a lot of time with my friend Mr. Net Flix (currently bingeing season 2 of Riverdale). If I feel up to it, I might paint said sunroom and go to a friend's baby shower over the weekend. Comment below with your weekend plans and let me live vicariously through you!!

As always, thanks for reading! It really means the world! I'll be posting about the N-Sale (my favorite sale of the entire year) on Monday, so stay tuned.
