what I’m meal prepping this week + life updates!

Hello, hello lovely readers! It’s been a while (oops!) Summer has been such a blur, but in a good way. I’ve been enjoying being able to get some much needed rest and relaxation, but also getting to make some good memories and work on achieving some goals. I figure since it’s been a while that I would give you guys a quick life update!

reflection on 2018 + goals for 2019

reflection on 2018 + goals for 2019

I’m having such a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that another year has come and gone. I can’t tell if the time is passing faster because I’m actually having that much fun or if it’s simply because I’m getting older. But I really do love this time of year because I love to reflect on what the Lord has done in the past year – I love reminiscing in the good times, and I appreciate the lessons I learned in the hard times. Similarly, I love getting to look ahead knowing that everything that happened this year has paved the way for what’s going to happen in 2019 and that it’s molded me into who I want – and was designed – to be.

weekend wrap-up: norman medieval fair

weekend wrap-up: norman medieval fair

hello lovelies! I hope you all had a pleasant weekend, whether that was getting some relaxing peace and quiet, getting chores done, or spending time with friends. mine was a combination of all three! friday was my rest day, saturday I managed to get some organizing + deep cleaning done, napped, went to the gym, and then sunday I attempted to meal prep (but more on that later) and finally made my way over to the Norman medieval fair.

over the three years I’ve lived in Norman, I had yet to go to this annual fair until this past weekend. I had been to medieval fairs in the past, mostly in my elementary homeschooling days, but there was certainly a lack of interest on my part in those days. I wasn’t really planning on going this year either until a couple of friends invited me to go, so I decided “why the heck not.”
