A Wonderful Weekend

What a fabulous 4th of July weekend! 


On top of fun (Paleo BBQin') and festivities (Fort Hood fireworks show) with some awesome friends, I had a few job interviews to tackle ... 

This lady is joining the workforce again!


Is there anything more time consuming and exhausting than job hunting? I can't tell you how many times I re-wrote and tailored my resume for various positions. Needless to say, I was so excited when I started getting some call-backs!

It was a great weekend, I really have a lot to celebrate and so much to be grateful for ...

Amazing FRIENDS ...





Family & Furbabies ...

Happy Birthday to my little brother! (July 6th)


My new boyfriend, Koa


my Fitness ...




incredible FOOD ...



and EMPLOYMENT ... 

So that I can enjoy gorgeous non-essentials like this ...



And inspiration ...to drive on, set new goals, and dream big.

Thank you, Christmas :)


I hope you and your family had a happy and wonderful 4th of July weekend!

I haven't forgotten the Protein Balls that I teased you with last week, I'm changing up the recipe to see if I can make some that are just as wonderful with PB2! Still high protein and high fat, just a few less calories.

(I don't know about ya'll, but I always feel like I could lose 10 pounds. ;)

Did you watch Fireworks this year?
Did you eat clean or indulge for the Holiday?
Do you use a gym bag?

  2. I always end up indulging over the holidays, no matter how good my intentions may be :( I did get to see two [official] fireworks shows, though! (Plus a backyard show at a shrimp boil :) )

    My gym bag is simply my Vera Bradley weekender bag- that poor thing didn't know what it was getting itself into!

  3. oh my goodness! congrats on getting call backs! i could talk to you for days about how exhausting job hunting is! I have been doing it for MONTHS! London has the highest unemployment rate in ALL of Ontario, so I am not having much luck. I've had a few interviews but apparently I am "over qualified" I just want a summer job and a part time job for school next year, but no one will hire me! I am going out again today and YES I have to reword my resume for the type of jobs I am applying to AGAIN! Exhausting, girl. I hear ya!

    I need to make your pancakes ASAP. I keep saying that, but seriously. I need to change up my breakfasts/meals and your pancakes always make me drool haha <3

  11. Christmas is definitely my girl crush. Is it territorial of me to be skeezed at all the non-CF folks that were commenting on her yahoo articles like "cute girl but too muscly/too many tattoos"? I was like "GET OUT OF HERE!!! You obviously do not understand." I will say yup.

    I quit my "real" corporate job Monday and am starting the grad student part-time job search, like, now. Job searching takes SUCH a toll on my ego.

    I want your boyfriend for my own, but also, this reminded me of your last post:
