Hey there, I feel like a stranger. I’ve missed chatting with you but I’ve also enjoyed this step back to posting 3x a week. I’m trying to do one “chatty” post and two less chatty (more informative or introspective) every week. That’s just rough guideline I’ve made for myself because I can’t get rid of these random thought/life posts, obviously. There might be a reader survey coming in the new year as I try to “refocus.”
This weekend I was scrolling through my iPhone camera roll deleting pictures to free up space and realized there were some recent pictures I never shared here. Craziness. Speaking of iPhones, I’ve heard the iPhone 6 has a much better camera than the 5, which I have. I’m eligible for an upgrade so I want to know if it’s worth it overall. Such a #firstworldproblem.
Now for a life update…
I was at the mall last weekend and seriously almost bought both these things….
Considering that I’m not doing any cardio still (injury update this week or early next) this shirt made me laugh. Although I do pride myself in not being late. I’m ALWAYS five minutes early. And that mug needs no explanation.
I exercised an ounce of creativity in the kitchen last week and made a roasted beet and kale quinoa salad. The lighting is awful (no shocker) but you can kind of see the pink quinoa (aka the reason I made it). Also, I think I’ve finally perfected baked chicken breasts. I’ve been playing around with my oven settings and timing but this one was a winner.
This might have been the best text I’ve ever received. But no, I didn’t call for more information.
And if you’re curious what I’ll be doing this week at home…
Make it a great Monday!
HAHA that shirt – is that at Francesca’s?! You should’ve totally gotten it!!

I have the iPhone 6 and I love it. I went from the 4 to the 6 last Thanksgiving and the biggest thing I noticed was the camera (probably because I take so many pictures on my phone). I haven’t updated to the latest update they have out (I have no room for it haha) so all the new emojis don’t show up on my phone, but if you are up for an upgrade, I would definitely do it!

That mug is awesome. I have a 5s but am looking forward to getting the 6 because I also heard that the camera is great! Typically I am either early or like 3 minutes late haha, I’ve got to work on always being early. Have a great week at home!

I am always SUPER early for everything. Growing up that was always really important to my parents, so now if I think I’m going to be running late I get really anxious. It doesn’t help that Dan is the opposite and is always running late. Now I just lie about the time we have to leave and it works out :)

The iphone inspires so much blogging inspiration and I put songs to mine today! I’m always awkwardly early to appointments and everything in life. I try to be on time or fashionably late but I think my entire internal clock is set 10 minutes early.

Ha, that MUG. Love it. Although the “Made in China” at the end… lol couldn’t they have put that on the bottom of the mug? Or are they saying they don’t care it is made in China…. hhmmmm. We’ll never know.
I’m wondering the same thing about iPhone 6! I reaallllyyyy don’t want to get a new phone because I basically don’t want to spend money on it. But my phone keeps dying at 40% and it is really starting to piss me off :)

I am ALWAYS early. I get such anxiety if I’m late… I blame my mom for that trait :)

I’m glad you’re taking care of your life and stepping back form the blog when it is needed. Do know that I love your chatty posts more than anything though. ;)
Also, I request more selfies.

Great sayings you found this weekend. Though I am the same way about being early. It is a habit from the military I can’t shake. I think it drives my friends who are always late nuts.

I have the 6s but honestly can’t tell that much of a difference in the camera…that might be because I have a LifeProof over it that covers the camera, though! I’m either ridiculously early to things (we’re talking 15-20 mins) or rushing in right at the last second. It’s never just a few minutes early, unfortunately!

Oh my gosh I would freak out if I got a text about puppies! Haha that’s awesome. I love the iphone 6! I had the 5s before and the 6 camera is a lot better I think!

I’m almost always early – I was totally that student in school who showed up at least five minutes before class started. The only thing that broke my early streak was living in Seattle – traffic consistently makes me just 3 or 5 minutes late, no matter how I plan, which drives me insane.

I’m still on a 4s so the 6 is a twinkling hope in the future i’m afraid…
I like to be early but at uni, things were always tight so I deliberately had my watch set 4 minutes fast just to make sure I got to where I needed to be on time.
Thanksgiving break = lots of puppy snuggling :)

Haha I love this post! It’s so fun going through old pics. I would like some of those puppies! I’m a HUGE fan of the iPhone 6 camera. It’s definitely a noticeable upgrade.
