On My Radar

Hey strangers, it’s been a while. 

I feel I should probably give some explanation as to my absence on the blog. This blog stuff is a lot of work. Props to all those gals who do this full time, jeez! Between planning, writing, taking photos and brainstorming future posts I was getting a little overwhelmed. I was trying to stick to a steady schedule of posting because by the standards of the practice, that’s what you do. But I found myself posting just to post and writing just to write, therefore losing inspiration and the reason behind starting this blog in the first place. To become inspired and (hopefully) inspire others.

So I’m back, or for now at least. Now back to your regular scheduled programming… here’s what’s been on my radar lately!

On My Radar

Hola amigos! (Look Mom, 14 years of Spanish classes paying off!)

There’s two on my radar posts up this week (the first was posted a little late – oops!), so double dose of pop culture and a few of my favorite things. Anyway, the three day weekend is finally here! I have no big plans unfortunately, but I’ll probably dig into a new book, try to catch some fireworks downtown and lay by the pool (but wish I was on a beach instead). Here’s a few things that caught my eye this week.

A little snap of a hike my dad and I did last weekend when he visited. How beautiful is this view?! Even with the clouds it’s amazing.

Hello lovelies!

I’m exhausted! This weekend my Dad came to visit me in North Carolina! I love when family and friends visit because I can show them my favorite places to eat and my favorite things to do. And we had a jam-packed weekend, to say the least. We went on a hike, perused the local Farmer’s Market, went to a baseball game and had the best meals ever (still thinking about the heavenly ahi tuna I had Friday night). Anyway here’s what’s been on my radar this week…

Check out these gorgeous pink hydrangeas (my favorite) that we stumbled upon while exploring a local arboretum. So so pretty!

Happy Fri-Yay!

This week seemed so long compared to last and I’m so glad it’s finally Friday. I decided to try out Pure Barre for a month so I’ve been going everyday after work this week and I am loving it! I’ve been taking classes with a co-worker and it’s always nice to have a friend beside you especially to exchange glances with when we have absolutely no idea what’s going on. Anyway here’s what’s been on my radar this week.

A four day week?! What could be better?

I used Monday to catch up on errands and the earlier part of my week organizing my to-do lists, so I’ve started the week pretty productively. On Wednesday I did a Pure Barre class with a few co-workers and I seriously forgot how hard it is! It’s such an amazing workout, I’m thinking of signing up for a month unlimited. **insert monkey with hands over eyes emoji** Stay tuned, I might die. Actual quote from a co-worker after the class, “I would rather birth another child, than do that class again.” Haha! Anyway, here’s what’s been on my radar this week.

Happy Friday Lovelies!

This week’s been grand, but I’m wishing the weekend would come a bit sooner. I cannot wait for a three day weekend! The Bachelorette is finally back so Mondays are now tolerable aaand I’ll be posting about each episode every week. Check out my episode one recap here. I’m organizing a Bachelorette bracket within my office and I couldn’t be more excited, such a fun way to bring coworkers together, especially if you missed out on the March Madness hysteria. Anyway off of reality tv and back to reality. Here’s what’s been on my radar this week.

This pizza! Just kidding, but it was pretty delicious. This picture is from a lunch with coworkers this week. It was so nice outside so we sat on the patio. I can’t wait for more summer days just like this one.

This week has gone by so slowly. Every day I’ve woken up thinking it was Friday, and being sadly mistaken. Between graduation and a going away party last weekend, I think I just needed one more day to recover. I’m excited to have a day to myself this weekend to run some errands and soak up the sun by the pool finally. Sunday, my friends and I plan to go to a food truck festival downtown, and I’m so excited. Why is it that food is so much better out of a truck? Anyway, here’s what’s been on my radar this week.

My little Jen’s graduation! Such a fun day at my alma mater.

This week has been a huge game of catch up. After two delayed flights Monday night in an attempt to get back to NC from NY (I have the world’s worst luck with flying) I’ve been catching up on sleep and a never-ending list of to-dos all week long. It’s made for a productive week though and I have some fun plans this weekend that I’m really looking forward to, my little (and future roomie)’s graduation and a going away party for my Cali-bound friend Laura.

Starbucks S’mores Frappuccinos are Back

I’m not normally a frappuccino gal. My go-to Starbuck’s drinks include a strawberry acai refresher or a plain old iced coffee with a pump of caramel. But… I have a weakness for all things s’mores and this is no exception. Amazing. Try it, seriously.

This week flew by. I’ve had so much to do at work and at home but I’ve thankfully been getting a lot crossed off my to-do list. I’ve also been competing with my friends in two Fitbit “Workweek Hustle” challenges- a competition to see who can get the most steps during a typical work week. It has seriously motivated me to get up and walk around at work and go for extra long runs after work. Unfortunately I’m still not doing too hot. (My friends are more active than me apparently.) But I’m determined to not lose by too much. Anyway here’s what’s been on my radar this week…

These Shoes

I ordered these from J.Crew Factory online last week and they finally arrived. I’m obsessed. They’re the perfect glitzy addition to an otherwise boring summer outfit and they’re on serious sale. Originally $70 and only $34 right now. Go, Go. Go.
