Life Lately: Summer Days

Summer days have been really enjoyable, and I'm really thankful for the people the Lord has placed in my life at this time. He knew I needed them! This past weekend was one of my favorites, and I look back and I'm so stinking thankful! Blogging has many perks- one of them being a place to record all the memories and good times had. Looking back gives me perspective and gratitude. I sure know I'm going to miss these days!

We've had many summer movie nights, and have eaten many tacos and pizza and burrito bowls.
We've made it through almost all 8 Harry Potter movies, and have done lots of city exploring in between school and work.

If you are in the Dallas area, the Dallas Farmer's Market is a fun weekend must!! We tried our best to withhold from buying everything. (but I made it out with an unpictured GLUTEN FREE 🙌giant cinnamon roll. and some peaches.)

I've watched Passion City Church's Goliath Must Fall series- and let me tell you, the message is a game changer! I sat down to watch one, and ended up watching the whole series!

I just finished How We Love...

...and this book is also a game changer. I borrowed it almost a year ago, completely forgot about it, and then picked it up a couple weeks ago for the first time- and WOW has it changed how I view and see people and the world and relationships. I suggest it 100%. (& Courtney, thanks for letting me borrow. Going to have to buy and send ya a new one because I had no plans to write in all the margins & then it happened. Oops!) It will get you thinking!

Also, Hillsong United just released a new album, and you're going to have to check it out as well! It's been playing non-stop over here.

Meal planning-wise, I've made this for lunch and dinner probably 7 times this summer. It is so easy and one of my very favorites.

I also made this smoothie...

and it was incredible.

Recipe: frozen bananas, frozen pineapple, pear juice, spinach, protein (I used collagen protein from Thrive Market because I'm not a big fan of flavored proteins!) Everything blended in the blender! Really one of the best smoothies I've had!

I keep thinking back that 365 days ago we were here...

and in 365 more days we will be back! We've been planning it! Disney is our summer place!

Our current summer places though include the gym on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, Toasted Coffee, and maybe our couch.

We've watched a LOT of reality tv this summer. I'm sad to say that I don't always watch tv, but when I do, it probably involves the Bachelorette, the Real Housewives, Millionaire Matchmaker, or the Kardashians. Hahaha. Guilty pleasure. yikes.

I've been studying to teach English classes in China online from my apartment! And I am so, so excited. I'll keep you updated about this one. And I've been studying a lot in general for summer classes.

And I think that just about sums up summer so far! Do you have any summer plans ahead? Happy Tuesday, friends!
