Summer Nights are Upon Us

It's official. I'm done with the semester!
I still have work, but I love my job, so that's beside the point :)

Here are some goals for the next couple of weeks:

Get into a workout routine
I've ran the past two days (about 3 miles each day) and I really want to keep that up. I know if I stop for a couple of days it'll be too easy to not start up again. I've picked out two half-marathons that I want to train for (one in the fall, one in the spring) so I think I better start moving! I also am going to add on some arm work - going to try something I found on Pinterest!
Start a new book - or two
I love that I can read whatever I want during the summer and not have to worry about school readings! Right now I have lined up: The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks, Sunday at Tiffany's by James Patterson and The Shack by William P. Young. I love Sparks (emphasis on the love) and the second two were recommendations. I am open to others :) Let me know what you're reading! 

Get some color
I'm going to try and lay out/be outside as much as possible! One thing about me is: I do not do tanning beds. I prefer to lather on some sunscreen and tanning oil and go outside. I absolutely love laying out and getting in a few chapters of my book before work!

Spend lots of time with Steven
Steven is coming home this week! Yayyy! He has to leave again (womp) on the 26th so you bet your bottom I'm going to be spending as much time with him as I can. It will be so nice to have more than just a weekend's time with him!
Good luck to everyone who is still taking finals and/or has graduation just up ahead!

Don't forget you have until Thursday to enter my giveaway!

Happy Monday!


  1. I read Sundays at Tiffanys a few years ago and really liked it. I think I read it in 1 day! Summer "fun" reading is the best!!

  2. Congratulations on finishing the semester - I'm thrilled that mine is over too!

  3. I just read "The Shack" - it was interesting. Loved some parts, others were questionable. I can't wait to see what you think! haha enjoy your time off :)

  4. I just read The Rescue a few months ago! Soo good, but anything by Nicholas Sparks is amazing... If you have time, you should also read "Look Again" by Lisa Scottoline! It surprised me! Enjoy your summer! :)
