3. Bonfires
4. Cooler days and nights
5. Leaves changing colors
6. Not having to sweat all the time (way less humidity)

Day #7: Seven things I'd like to work on to improve myself:

1. I am currently working on losing weight
2. Get back into school
3. Blog more often with even better content
4. Be more productive with the much shorter schedule I have to do things now
5. Do more photography for fun and not just for work
6. Get my teeth fixed
7. Make the pin-up group the best there ever has been

Day #8: Eight things I love about myself:

1. My eyes
2. My listening skills
3. My ability to be nonjudgmental about people no matter what they look like or their background or anything else about them really.
4. My ability to be honest without being an asshole
5. My ability to read almost anything and enjoy it

Well to be honest, I am working all day, so I won't be posting a photo, I will be in a green tee and khaki pants with mint tennishoes.

Day #10: A day in my life:

Work, work, work. *sigh*

Day #11: Make a wish!

I wish that my boyfriend will make it through today. I hate that he has to work today. One year ago on September 11th, he lost his best friend of like a million years in a car wreck. They had known each other and been close since like 6th grade. His best friend was a great guy and my boyfriend and him were extremely close.

Ok, that is all for today. I will be back as soon as I can be to do more.

Have a great rest of the week!

September Blogging Challenge: Day 2

Good morning everyone! :)

Well here we are at day 2 of the September Blogging Challenge!

Day #2: Something you're proud of accomplishing recently

1. I have been losing weight, so much so that my pants are falling off of me.
2. I am busting my butt and actually enjoying my job.
3. I have been being the best possible parent to the teenager (tho I am far from perfect and have a ton of work to do to be even better, but I am doing the best I can for the moment.)
4. I am enjoying blogging much more now than I have in the past, and that makes me very happy! :)
5. I have been eating my chia seeds with at least one meal a day, and 3 days in, I already am feeling better!
6. I got to see my parents this morning after 1 year and 10 months of not having seen them :( Though 5:30 am was not exactly when I wanted to get up, I sure am glad I was given the chance to spend an hour having breakfast with them before they had to head out again (they travel for work, so they were literally just passing through).

Honestly, that is a lot I have accomplished lately! More than most other times! lol.

(Scroll down for some fun photos of my teenager and her BFF!lol)

Have a great rest of your week! :)

PS: My teenager is the taller one with the red hair. :)

September Blogging Challenge: Day #1

Hi everyone!! :)

So, I was browsing Pinterest and I saw Gracie pinned her blogger challenge #septbloggingchallenge. So, I decided to do it! :)
Now, bear with me on this, because I am working quite a bit right now and so, I promise to do all the days, but some might be grouped together. lol

Day 1 is: My goal for the month of September

1. Blog more and try to have different content than normal.
2. Spend more quality time with the fiancé and teenager.

3. I want to make sure to be more productive with my blogs and videos, even when I am tired after work.
4. Read more. I have been slacking lately because I started the new job, so I want to pick back up on it.
5. Be productive and have a list of things to talk with the teenagers teachers about at the parent/teacher conferences.

And honestly, that is really all I have for goals this month. I live a simple life, lol.

Also, tomorrow (September 2nd) I get to see my dad and step-mom for breakfast. I don't get to see them but maybe every couple of years, so it is a treat when I get to! :)

Have a great, short week now that the holiday is over!
