Ocean Love

Hey peeps!!  I didn't mean to be gone for so long but I've been busy busy.  In my spare time, I've been sleeping :)  First things first, the girls beach weekend was FABULOUS.  It was the perfect relaxing weekend that I hoped it would be.  There are a ton of pictures, so lets get right to them:

I went out one morning at 7am.. that chair was my happy place on the quiet beach for a couple of hours

Honestly, if I could live anywhere on earth, it would be on the ocean.  It's one of the only places where I ever feel truly relaxed.  I can appreciate the beauty of mountains and deserts but I am definitely most at peace near the water.  Someday..

My other major news is that I got a new job!!  Not a new full time job, but a part time job to supplement the full time job.  I am waitressing with one of my best friends at a sports bar in Raleigh.  I spent last weekend training and this weekend will be my first on my own.  I waitressed for 5 years in college so I know what I'm getting into, but I know it will be a transition.  I'm not used to being on my feet for 5-7 hours at a time anymore.  Not to mention that this place gets PACKED and I will have to get good, fast.  I'm hoping the extra money will be worth the lack of weekends from now on.

It's been so hot here lately.  I think that's the story of the whole country right now, but honestly I was not expecting 90-100 degree weather this early in the summer.  It's taken away my appetite.. my eats lately have looked a lot like this for breakfast, lunch and dinner:

Fruit.. yogurt.. cereal.. toast.  It was difficult to go shopping because I just had no idea what I even wanted to eat.  I don't usually buy cereal because I rarely want it, but the past week it's been the perfect dinner.  (That is Frosted Mini Wheats by the way.)  I hate feeling heavy in the heat so I have to make sure I'm eating enough sometimes or else I will get a migraine.  If I could, I think I could live on water and fruit alone in the summertime.  Does anyone else lose their appetite in the heat?

That's all for now.  I've gone about 10 minutes without water and I need to get up and get more.  Have a good night everyone :)

My foods are like yours lately! This heat has made me want to eat quick, cold meals. Salads, cereal, fruits, and yogurt!

Yeah, if it's not cold, I don't want it. It's WAYYY too hot out for anything else.
