Goodbye July...

Hello lovelies! 

I guess you can say it's been a "hot minute" since I last blogged... 7 days to be exact! If I'm honest, today I had made up my mind I was going to stop the whole "blog life" thing and shut her down. I was telling my friend at work that I just felt like it was a waste of time and pointless. (I tend to discourage myself when I think something isn't perfect or up to everyone else's standards) He encouraged me not to give it up if it was something I truly enjoy... and I think he was right. Sometimes you just need someone in your life to give you a little push... I'm thankful for those people!

Since it's the end of the month, I thought this would be the perfect time to list the things that made me happy this month! 

5 Things That Made Me Happy This Month
  1. We finally booked our cabin for Christmas! I'm so excited... My family has wanted to do this forever and I can't believe it's actually going to happen this year. My mom and I have been planning out the entire trip... (Christmas lights at Silver Dollar City, Christmas Eve dinner and gifts, etc.) 
  2. I watched my first Christmas movie of the year AND made an epic Christmas playlist! (Can anyone tell I'm READY for the holidays? Hehe)
  3. The John Mayer Facebook Live Concert! Shout out to my friend Jan... She is probably one of my only friends that would EVER sit there and watch an entire JM live concert and chat about it through IM with me. That's a true friend, folks! ;)
  4. I'm down 6 pounds this month... and I'm feeling great! I have really been enjoying my workouts and I have so much more energy.
  5. MY FRIENDS. Y'all, I just have to take a minute and say how thankful I am for my friends. (Especially this month!) Thankful for the friends who have never left my side... thankful for all the encouragement when I'm at my lowest... Thankful for the one's who make me laugh when I'm about to burst in to tears... Thankful for the daily conversations that can be totally serious, yet turn in to the most random and ridiculous of stories. It's crazy how much life can change over time but your true friends remain constant. 
Before I sign off, I thought I'd share a funny little story that happened to me the other day. After a long day at work, I headed to get a much needed pedicure. The guy turns on the water and turns on the jet as I sit down... ready to relax. HA! Right! Before I know it, the water is shooting directly towards me, out of nowhere! Apparently, he had turned the jet the wrong way and water came pouring out!! Omgsh, I couldn't get out of the chair fast enough... I had a diet coke in my hand, my Louis Vuitton in my lap and the chair arm locking me in. By the time I finally got out of the way, I was SOAKED. LOL Let's just say, it made for a very entertaining show to everyone that was sitting there watching it all go down! (The life of Charity Smith...Smh.)

I hope you all have a fantastic week! 

Love always,

"Friends come and go like waves of the ocean, but the true ones stick, like an octopus on your face." <3
