Coffe Date + Highs and Lows


Friday is here and I am so so over the moon by this fact. The week has been long and I am thrilled to have a weekend away from the office. So, today I am linking up with Jenna from Dearest Love to share some highs and lows from the week!

Coffee Date Linkup
Highs

Ronnie and I are now officially working out at the same gym and we’ve bene going together in the evenings. Its been really nice to spend that time together and he basically is my personal trainer because I am kind of clueless when it comes to lifting weights. It helps me stay consistent and pushes me to get out of my comfort zone in the gym!

I went back to my 7-4 with a full hour for lunch schedule. The past few weeks I tried working nine hour days in order to take every other Friday off, but I hated it. I love getting off at four because I can actually run errands, workout, etc and not feel like I am getting home at my bed time. And yes, my bed time is about nine PM and I'm not ashamed of it in the slightest.

I’ve lined up quite a few babysitting jobs, which is awesome because not only do I love hanging out with kids we also have been racking our brains to figure out how we can be making that school payment each month and still do things we want to do, like go on our anniversary trip. Luckily we have all of it paid for and are now just saving for our spending money and I couldn't be more excited. We're determined to get through his school debt free, even if that means picking up side jobs and working more hours. Dedication! We're very thankful for the way God is providing for us during this season I definitely had a hard time trusting Him!


Lows

I think I may have overbooked myself this weekend and next week. In the next seven days, I am house sitting, babysitting, going to a concert, going to a bridal shower, babysitting some more, hosting a campfire/s'mores night with some girls from youth group, and doing a fun photo project that I will give you more details about soon. If you know me, you know I value quiet, no-plan time much more than I love busy busy time but all of it is good, fun stuff so I am hoping I can keep my sanity and my blogging schedule up.

Ronnie has also been extra busy and between both of our schedules, I am starting to miss him! I am super bummed he can't come to the concert I am going to this weekend because he is working, but luckily my mom is coming so I know we'll still have fun.

We finished the last season on Netflix of White Collar and we can't find the next season and it makes me want to cry on a daily basis. My name is Brittany and I get too emotionally invested in characters from books and movies.

Thats its for my highs and lows-its been a pretty good week overall and I am ready to take on the next week with energy and enthusiasm. I hope!




PS: Have you met one of my blogging besties, Rachel?



I've been reading Rachel's blog(s) since before I had my own blog. She has always been not only an amazing writer, blogger, DIYer, but she's also turned into an amazing and dear friend of mine. Rachel and I exchange texts almost daily and she is one of the most encouraging and uplifting people I know.  She is a gorgeous new bride with amazing wisdom about marriage and being a wife. She is a labor and delivery nurse and I can't imagine a better job for this girl because she is so gentle, loving and kind. If you are needing some inspiration to blog and write again, check out her post about how to find your passion to blog again. Rachel is also an expert DIYer and these DIY Anthropologie look-a-like coffee mugs have me swooning. I can't get enough of her, her posts and her friendship. Love you mean it friend!!
