On My Mind

The thoughts on my mind are piling on top of each other lately. 

There's so much adulting underway that my 28-year-old self can hardly believe it. 



Last week I mentioned mortgages and realtors, but before that there's also budgeting and prioritizing. A few weeks ago I mentioned a Summer Caribbean vacation that's paid for, but now there's global awareness to the Zika virus that has us scrambling. I've always been into health and fitness, but things are beginning to click as I've lost 5% of my starting body weight in the last two months.

There's upcoming anxiety to do my guy right in celebrating his birthday as a couple for the first time, the upcoming anxiety of our first valentine's together, the upcoming anxiety of getting-that-house, spending-that-moneymoving-those-things, jumping-in-that-pool, making-that-home. Hilariously, we broke up in 2014 and 2015 on February 1st over FaceTime, so waking up next to each other this year on February 2nd was a mental miracle. 

There's the new jeans I'm wearing and how they fit so well, the glasses I recently got from a collaboration with Firmoo and how I love them so much, the weekend 7 month anniversary of my life in Tennessee, the big plans and the big surprises and the yes I can do this feeling. 

It's all on my mind.

Your February 1st breakup thing is seriously adorable to me for some reason. I hope it was a very happy February 2nd this year! And yes you can do this - all of it!

That's a lot of things! Glad to hear so many of them are very good things, even if rawther adult-y and sort of scary. ♥

Lots and lots of things to think about. I can see how you would be worried about Zinka, but if you aren't planning to get prego before 2017 you are good to go.

We are in the whole buy the house and budget the money too. It's a lot of adulting...not ready.

home buying is a love it/hate it thing. you're so excited and love the thought of making your house a home but the money!

So many wonderful, exciting things! There sounds like there's so much to look forward to and think about, but be sure to still enjoy each day. I still can't wait to see where some of these next steps take you!

Happy February 2nd. (a day late.)
"the yes I can do this feeling." <- feel this! Feel this feeling always. Go and do! and be! And enjoy it all.

So many thoughts in adulthood especially dealing with relationships. So many. Good, bad and confusing. Happy in-relationship February though!! hehe

PS where in the Caribbean? my advice... take your vacay. It got to the US (Dallas) before it got to my country and im in the Caribbean. Be cautious, but also we cant stop living life :)
