Getting back into the “swing a’ things!”


I am so happy to FINALLY be writing to y’all! This post is way over due but I’ll try and fill y’all in a little bit on what has been going on. Really quick, this morning I was able to get up and head to the Katy Trail…shocker! hehe and I ran my 4 miles! Such an amazing morning. Yesterday at 4PM on the Katy Trail a walk started called “Carry the Load”. It is a walk that honors veterans and those who passed during service. Men (and women) were walking with their army packs on and some in full uniform, through the night until later this afternoon. Amazing.

Whitney, BriAnn and I have moved out of our apartment and Waco and will be moving into a house for Senior year..thrilled!! It’s going to be a great year!

Summer so far has been pretty crazy and I feel like I’m finally getting into a routine. Next Monday I start my internship with Texas De Brazil. I’m so excited but I’m also nervous! I have no idea what to wear or expect! I am so happy though because in a few weeks I’ll be headed to Denver with the team for some kind of event! I love traveling and I’m THRILLED to be going. Every summer wonderful opportunities seem to come my way like this. Last year I was able to go to, Malibu, Orlando, Jackson Hole, NC, and Estes Park. This summer I’ll be headed to Denver, Boston, Rhode Island, and Estes Park. I am so so thankful for each opportunity! Denver is with my internship and the rest are with family or friends.

Today will be bliss! We are all just hanging out by the pool and relaxing. I’m going to enjoy time being with family today and remember all of the people who sacrificed so much for me to do so. Sorry this post is so short and random! Many more coming soon:) Happy to be home and getting into the summer mindset.




Hey, everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been so MIA recently! It’s been so crazy here with finals, friends, functions…haha and family…see a pattern? 😉 Anyway I am officially finished with my Junior year of college…how WEIRD is that? I wish time would slow down but at the same time I am so excited for all that is ahead! Especially this summer. Summer is my all time favorite season. Personally I believe I grow the most during the summers. Probably because I can make my own schedule, be with my family and really focus on the things I want to focus on.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want this blog to look like, be about this summer and I have a few exciting ideas so I’ll keep you posted (literally through posts) hehe! I’ve been learning so much about myself these past few weeks by really focusing on what I want my day to be like each morning and it is AMAZING what thoughts can do change your outlook or mood on a day. I know you’ve probably heard that but have you ever TRIED it? Seriously try it! In vision your day, your goals and the things you want become more realistic. All about discipline:)

Here are a few summer goals I have in mind: (I’m sure I’ll post a more in depth version later today or tomorrow!)

-Get my miles back up, specifically 6 miles every morning. Many of you know that I ran my first Half Marathon in Feb. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life! Since then I have continued running but have not kept my miles up so I am looking forward to laying out a schedule to do so! My house is only about 2 miles from Katy Trail and a goal of mine this summer is to run to the Katy Trail, run a little at the Katy Trail and come home!

-Blog more…:) Most summers this is easy!

-Read 5 (or MORE) books!

-Take Summer Online classes seriously………this will be difficult haha!

-Cook more! I want to learn more recipes this summer. As many of you might have seen I am a ToneItUp team member and loving every second! I plan on following their nutrition plan all summer to continue my healthy lifestyle!

-Enjoy time with my family (this isn’t really a goal but more of a “Yay, I’m excited for this type thing 🙂

I’m sure I’ll think of more but this is it so far! I believe goals are the key to setting standards for yourself, bettering yourself and PUSHING yourself to be the best YOU possible!

Dad on a BIG ride last week! So proud of him…:)
