Life Lately // Work Work Work

Okay guys, life around here lately has been a bit...overwhelming :)  Here are a few of the reasons I was absent last week, and why my blog posts for the next few weeks may be a bit sparse:

  • I've picked up more hours at work due to some rescheduling, and it's reeeally taking a toll on me being able to get out and enjoy photographing nature!  I haven't touched my camera in over a week!  This schedule won't be changing for a while, so I'll be working on adapting my photo habits to the new schedule.  The following reasons are also taking up a lot of my time...which is another reason I didn't blog last week.
  • I've been working on my super secret side project (which, as promised, I'll be talking more about soon).  I've created a productivity schedule for the next few months, and it's going to be taking up the majority of my free time outside of work.
  • I've been following an exercise plan and cooking more throughout the week.  Since the new work schedule started Monday of last week, this took a backseat as well.  Now that I've gotten a bit more used to the schedule though, I'll be picking this back up and working harder to stay on track.
So basically this is what my schedule is going to look like for a while:
  • Work 9-5 Monday through Friday + every other Saturday.
  • Workouts 3-6 times per week for 30-45 minutes.
  • Work on the project for at least 2 hours on weekdays and 4 or more hours on my days off.
  • Make a healthy homemade dinner each night.
  • Build and schedule blog posts on my days off (don't expect too much this week-as I'm still playing catch up on my project schedule)
I hate that my blog took a backseat last week.  I'm hoping that everything I've added to my plate won't take away from my blog content.  I'll be a super busy lady for the next few months, so bear with me!  Have a great week you guys!

Fun Shoot Friday // 8 // Red White & Blue


I almost missed getting this together you guys!  As soon as I got off work today, I rushed to the Party Store to pick up some 4th of July themed goodies so that I could do a Fun Shoot Friday post!  I've definitely been slacking on this feature, but here ya go!  I've entered this photo in the annual Fluker's Patriotic Pet Photo Contest (which I've done so last minute!)  Feel free to vote for him by going HERE! Have a great weekend!

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

Goals // July 2015


_Lose 8 Pounds.  
I started utilizing Plan To Eat last month...which encouraged me to cook more at home...which encouraged me to stop eating take-out and fast-food all the time...which caused me to drop 4 pounds!  I've also been going for lots of walks at the park and playing Tennis with Matthew in the evening :)

_Buy a New Snake Hook
This was a total fail last month, and I sadly did absolutely no herping :(  Hopefully I'll have some extra money this month to invest in a new hook so I can get my herp on!

_Hike at Dinosaur Valley State Park
I've been wanting to visit this place for SUCH a long time!  It's only an hour and a half drive from here, so there should be no excuse for not making this happen this month :)  I want a photo of my feet in a real dinosaur track BAD!!!

_Reveal my plans for the "Secret Project" I've been working on!
This is something I've been working on for a little while now, and things are beginning to come together.  It won't be officially launched until the Spring of 2016, but I've got a lot of work and research ahead that I hope I'll be able to complete by then!  

What Are Your Goals This Month?
