+// I have been so lazy this summer. Like on a whole new scale of laziness. I’ve been sleeping in and taking naps whenever possible. And it’s been AWESOME.

+// I haven’t had Starbucks in over two weeks, and I am having serious withdrawals.

+// ^ Same for Chipotle.

+// I have been playing Mario Cart with my little sister in law every day this week. And I am hooked.

+// The other day we made s’mores, instead I just had about 20 roasted marshmallows. I love roasted marshmallows.

+// I have been having slight baby fever lately, and reading a lot of mommy blogs. It’s my guilty little pleasure. I often daydream about one day being a mommy blogger myself.

+// I’ve watched more TV in the past month, than I have in the past year.

+// I also discovered how awesome it is to be able to watch TV on the elliptical when I am working out. Time FLIES! Music no longer does anything for me if I can find something to watch on TV.

+// I haven’t been keeping up with my youtube videos and its killing me. Especially the daily VLOGS that I am used to watching. I feel like I am missing out on so much.

+// Yesterday I totally caught myself singing and dancing in the shower as I washed my hair. Kind of like in commercials, only not as smooth.

+// Job hunting SUCKS. & so does meeting new people. Why is making friends so hard?

+// Oh, and one more big thing, we moved! We are currently living in Colorado Springs. So Far I love it. It’s so much prettier than the desert I am used to! I’ll be sharing more details very soon!

  • OEMGEE! This summer has been the same for me, I’m sleeping 15 hours a day and short naps are another matter! I feel so lazy but hey, I LOVE BEING LAZY!


    • Sleeping in is the best thing ever! haha.

  • I agree, job hunting sucks! But keep on it, Desiree! Just remember your career doesn’t have to define who you are πŸ™‚

    • Very true! Thank you for the kind words! Hopefully something will work out soon! =]

  • Holy cow girly, I wouldn’t say that moving is a lazy summer. I am getting ready for a huge move too.

    • That’s true! But it was a pretty easy move for us. We had a lot of help from family! πŸ™‚ but good luck with your move! Moving is exciting! πŸ™‚

  • Props on two weeks without starbucks! Are you just doing a diet or trying to drink less coffee/save money? Cause I just bring my coffee from home, saving my daily $5 starbuck for other things!

    I’ll probably be at the same boat you are in now soon… job hunting, moving, trying to meet new friends.. It’s hard, but one thing that helps is signing up for classes and workshops in your area. Sometimes the high schools and universities in your area offer continuing education with some fun classes you can take. Pick whatever! I did one to learn how to make macarons, a few on sewing… They might even have stuff for bloggers in your area, join a group and meet up! Bloggers make good friends πŸ™‚

    • No, I’m not dieting or anything. I just no longer have the convenience of living close to one. πŸ™ but it’s a nice treat when I can have it!
      Where are you moving?? Thanks for the tips! I’ll definitely look into some classes! πŸ™‚

  • yikes! i couldn’t go 2wks without coffee!

    thanks for linking up!

    • Its been ridiculously hard. =[

  • Oh I’ve been wanting s’mores so bad (well, roasted marshmallows really!) this summer. I need to find a campfire ASAP to make that happen!

    • I hadn’t had roasted marshmallows in YEARS. So that night was probably the highlight of my summer.

  • You’re so pretty!! Yummy, s’mores!! Watching tv really does help with working out. If I had a treadmill that I could just walk/run on in front of my tv, I would be good to go!

    • Thank you!! And yes, I never realized how much easier it is with TV as opposed to music. Now I am able to work out longer without difficulty! Who knew? haha

  • Fabulous post! I’m a Chipotle lover too – in Texas we had a similar burrito-building chain called Freebirds, and it is AMAZING. I mean, seriously, my favorite place IN THE WORLD. They have cayenne tortillas!
