On the last Wednesday of each month, fellow bloggers Shay & Sheaffer host a link up where everyone answers the same questions about what they’ve been up to each month. It’s always a post that I enjoy reading and like to participate in. Here’s what’s been happening this month.
What I’m Eating This Week
I actually posted this photo on my Instagram earlier today and it pretty much sums up what my diet has consisted of this month. I always say that my appetite changes with the seasons. In cooler weather, I tend to crave comfort foods like soups and chilis and in warmer weather, I want salads, sandwiches packed with veggies, and fruit. I absolutely love to make pita sandwiches stuffed with cucumbers, tomato, lettuce, bell peppers, avocado, and onion.
What I’m Reminiscing About
CMA Fest is coming up next weekend and if you have followed me for a while then you know it’s been a festival that I’ve attended for the past 11 years. My brother and I have been talking a lot lately about the past festivals that we have attended and prepping for this year. We have our passes and I’ve started gathering all of the things I’ll be packing in my bag to survive the week. I will be bringing my camera along and sharing all of the fun here on the blog. I’m thinking about vlogging a little as well so we’ll see how that goes and if I get enough video to share.
What I’m Loving
My new Tory Burch handbag! It was a gift from my parents for my birthday and it’s just such a great size. I can fit everything I need inside and it’s a crossbody so I have my hands free when I’m out and about. This is the only photo that I have of it. It was taken for Aysia’s Instagram and an advertisment campaign that we did for a sunglasses company.
What I’ve Been Up To
Working! I’ve started a new business, Sweet Whimsy Co, and I’ve been extremely busy with it. I design and sell digital embroidery, applique, and printable designs. I have an Etsy shop that is up and running and I’m currently in the process of building an e-commerce website as well. It’s a lot of work and I’m also still trying to keep up with releasing new designs and digitizing all of my current designs into embroidery designs.
What I’m Dreading
Really hot weather. I love sunshine and summertime but I’m over it in a month or so. It’s been unusually hot here this past week and I’m really hoping that doesn’t mean that we are going to have an extremely hot summer this year. I’ll be ready for fall after the 4th of July!
What I’m Working On
Every spare moment that I’ve had the past few weeks has been devoted to Sweet Whimsy Co. It’s a lot of work to start a new company but it’s a lot of fun too.
What I’m Excited About
CMA Fest for sure! My brother and I are going together again this year and we always have so much fun. The concert lineup is really great this year and our seats are closer to the stage so I’m really hoping for good photos, as long as no tall people sit in front of me! HA
What I’m Watching/Reading
When Calls the Heart came back a few weeks ago and the season finale is this Sunday. It’s the only show that I actually keep up with and watch as it airs. If you haven’t watched it you definitely should. You can watch past seasons on Netflix.
What I’m Listening To
The Bible app on my phone. I started this year with the goal of reading the entire Bible in chronological order. The Bible app has different plans that you can choose from and I chose the chronological reading plan for this year. Each day’s plan usually has a few chapters included in the reading schedule. I’ve started listening to a few chapters at night while I brush out my pups and then I’ll finish up with reading if there are any chapters left.
What I’m Wearing
I just did a bit of shopping online this past week during the Memorial Day sales and I plan to share a blog post once everything comes in.
What I’m Doing This Weekend
I’ll probably hang out at home this weekend since next week will be super busy and I won’t be home much.
What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month
CMA Fest and possibly going back to Louisiana to visit family for a few days. I miss my MawMaw so much!
What Else Is New
Other than a new business, there’s nothing else new going on.
