Where Have I Been?

Hello lovelies!

Where have I been!? I think this is the longest I've ever gone without posting something on my blog since I started it! Yikes! (Not going to let that happen again, promise!) This week...The past two weeks have been complete MADNESS... I'm not even kidding. Work has been so crazy busy, I can't seem to keep up! I honestly think the main reason I haven't posted lately is because I stare at a computer all. day. long. at work and staring at one when I get home is usually the last thing I want to do. Ha! However, blogging does help me relax and de-stress a bit so I'm going to hop right in to this recap! :)

First off, I am absolutely loving the book series I'm reading! It's oh so good! I'm already on the second book-- finished the first one in less than a week! Who am I? Ha!
(This is the one I'm currently reading...)

I also caved y'all... I finally bought Beyonce's "Lemonade" album. Sigh. I thought if I waited it out long enough, it would either become cheaper on iTunes or it would finally be available on Apple Music. Buuut I was wrong! Heh. Either way-- I've been listening to the album all day and it's so good! I've tried not to be a Beyonce fan, but the girl can just flat out sang. #guiltypleasure

Speaking of music... I'm so excited! Not only do I get to see Brother's Osborne this Friday night but I also just bought tickets to see Maren Morris in October! If you've read my blog at all in the past few months, you know how obsessed I am with her album. *happy dance* <3

Moving on... ;)

This past weekend was a busy one for sure! My nephew graduated high school Friday night so we attended his graduation in Greenwood. After graduation was over, we went and grabbed a bite to eat at Beef O Brady's. It was delish!

Saturday morning, we woke up and decided to cruise around with the top down for a bit and then went grocery shopping before we headed to our nephew's graduation party later that day...
(Am I the only one that likes to see what other people eat? Haha! I always tend to get really good ideas. I've been thinking about doing a blog post totally dedicated to healthy finds I've been loving from the grocery store. Would that be weird? Let me know in the comments below if that would be interesting to you!)

After the graduation party, we came home and watched a few episodes of 'The Office' and headed to bed. Sunday morning we went to church and meal prepped for the week ahead. I'm really trying to focus on getting my diet and exercise back in control. Making progress! 

Besides work being super busy, yesterday was pretty exciting for a Monday! My brother and sister-n-law had their baby so I am now an aunt to another kiddo. We spent most of the night at the hospital visiting with family!

As far as today goes, work was once again crazy busy... (I feel like I'm going to be saying that a lot this summer! Ha!) After work, I came home and made a quick salad before heading to the gym:
(This has been my favorite combo lately... Spinach, strawberries, feta and raspberry vinaigrette!) 

I worked legs tonight at the gym and OH. MY. GOODNESS. My legs feel like jello! I did bar squats for the first time in months and I am definitely going to be feeling it tomorrow! 
You gotta take that gym selfie to prove you were there! ;)

Anyways, I think that's going to be all for now. I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far! Tomorrow is Wednesday which means we are half way to the weekend! *high five*

Love always,
Charity
XOXO

(Ah! Finally some new music from Chris Young! I am loving his new single... So good!)

(Ok, so I'm going to be honest about this song. This came on my Pandora station about a month ago... Really liked the song but totally didn't give it another chance when I looked the guy up who sings it! Haha! He looked like a thug and his voice did NOT match him or the country sound at all. However, I gave in when I heard this song again last week... and I'll give credit where it's due. I really enjoy listening to it! Give it a try! P.S. The link posted above is the actual music video for the song... Click on it! Blogger would only let me post the lyric video on my blog! *eye roll*)
