Weekend Check In

Yes - I can at least check in once a week. I want to build up to more, but honestly during the week all I do is work so it's the same thing every day. This week I was a bit more adventurous, though, and went SUPing on my day off. I seriously had the entire Mission Bay to myself and it was awesome. For the first time, I risked bringing my phone out with me (I wanted to listen to music) but it would have totally sucked had I fallen.. but I didn't!

How awesome are three day weekends? I wish they were all 3 days long because its the perfect amount of time to relax, play, and be productive. We've had a wonderful weekend here in California, and still have half of it left!

Yesterday we went on one of my favorite dates we ever had. We went to Pacific Beach, in a secluded area with an amazing view of the ocean, and had a picnic and read books. We watched the sunset, and I saw the infamous "green flash." We then went to see American Sniper again, and loved it just as much as the first time.

Today we woke up early for beach yoga and quick dip in the ocean with David and Marlene. I came home and went on a bike ride, and we have a couples massage scheduled for later. How perfect right?! Also.. tomorrow will make one week that I have been gluten and dairy free!! The weather is perfect here, and everything is going just as well.

Tomorrow the Bachelor is on again, yay! I am looking forward to another day of no work... and in 2 weeks, I will be off work for 2 weeks!!! So many good things happening! Enjoy your weekend!! xoxo

Weekend Check In

Hello!! I have emerged from underneath the covers, and I am happy to report that I survived my first week of working two jobs! It was busy and the house is a mess, but it was totally doable and I am not gonna lie... I can't wait to get my paychecks!! I am still orienting at job #2, and actually don't have anything for it this next week.

This week, we had beautiful weather in San Diego... up in the 80s! The downside was that I had to work and couldn't go to the beach or really hang outdoors to enjoy it. I have Tuesday off this week, though, and did most of my errands yesterday so I am hoping to make Tuesday my relax day!

Fun things from this past week:
1. The Bachelor premiere. I absolutely LOVE the Bachelor franchise, and I am SO thankful for DVR so that I can record it and watch it at my convenience. I am totally over all the "farmer" puns, which is bad new for me since there are like 8 more episodes.
2. The Bachelorette couple, Andi and Josh, broke up!!! Obviously, my life is pretty boring right now since my top two events from this week are about TV shows. But seriously... they were just together on the red carpet for the premiere Monday, and Thursday announced they broke up!? They have kept quiet on Social media, so I am interested to see what surfaces about this over the next few weeks. They seriously seemed so happy through all of their instagram posts, it's so odd to me!
3. I got my nails done this weekend. I seriously LOVE the place I go. This was one of my new years resolutions, to do little things like wear earrings and get my nails done to look more presentable and professional. Wearing scrubs every day is NOT very glamorous, so I have to do little things to spice it up!
4. Worked way too much... already discussed.
5. Yesterday, hubby and I laid around all day. It was AMAZING. I did sneak out for my manicure and  to pick up Indian takeout, but other than that we just relaxed, cuddled, and watched movies all day. Incidentally, I have to be a bit more productive today but it was so worth it to just relax yesterday!

As I said, one of my resolutions is to get back into blogging. Even if nobody reads this, I am always looking at it to reference and reflect things we have done! So at a minimum, I am hoping to do a weekend check in every week in order to discuss some highlights of the stuff we have going on! I may not add pictures, but you can follow me on instagram because I am posting once a day (and then some) for 2015.

Hubby and I (and my brother and Marlene) were all supposed to go to beach yoga this morning, but they all wanted to sleep rather than go... boo! I could have gone alone, but it was raining... and I didn't want to get soaked! So Sunday is already off to a lazy start... as it should be! Tomorrow is supposed to be a busy day at work, so I am chilling out while I can!

New Year

For whatever reason, I'm feeling very excited for this new year. I'm ready to make some positive changes in my life, and the start of a new year always creates a natural start time for this. My entire family was just here for the holiday season, and we had a wonderful time. It was a bit chillier in San Diego than I would have liked, but everyone enjoyed themselves as well as the activities and food! Speaking of food, I need to diet. And exercise. Yikes... this is the most cliche resolution, but please add it to my list. I would love to lose about 15-20 pounds.

Monday I am starting a second job, in addition to my full time job. I pray I don't go crazy, because I will be working so much extra each week. I am kind of feeling sulky this weekend, because I know it's my last chance to veg out and do nothing for a while. I keep reminding myself that it will bring a positive change though! We spent so much money over Christmas and need to rebuild our savings.

Ryan and I were reflecting about this new year 2015. We may have a move coming up (in August we will find out if we stay in San Diego or PCS). We have financial goals we want to reach as well. I already mentioned my weight loss, but I also want to work on some other dietary changes (more to come at a later time). Blogging, of course, is on the list too because I keep slacking! When I look at my blog, it is lousy!! I also want to make new friends and continue exploring our amazing city!! I want to continue moving my lifestyle to a healthier, more natural one... Hopefully as my blog posts continue throughout the year, this becomes something that we can actually see play out!! Happy new year friends, may 2015 be the best year yet!
