These photos were taken on a 90 degree day a few weeks ago, when Kyle and I ventured down to Eastern Market for the day. We still have some yard work to finish up; hopefully this weekend and I can take some pictures and post them up here. Lately, there has been so much to do it has been hard trying to get everything done. Thankfully, I have not been too stressed out. I am on a mission to get the most out of my day: I bust-ass at work, try my hardest to get the house clean and get some exercise in, and spend time with Kyle. Sometimes we end up getting Subway for dinner, sometimes the extent of my exercise is just taking Louie for a walk, but in order to fit everything in, you sometimes have to compromise. I scheduled out a great workout plan for the next week, so that will be my primary focus. I need to up my strength training and do a few intensive cardio sessions a week.

Also, my life has been consumed by books and TV. I have always been a reader, but I have at least 24 books stacked by my bed to get through this summer. Kyle and I have also been sucked into the world of Doctor Who; we are on the tenth doctor. It is so nice to end the day unwinding in front of the TV while I work on blog & wedding stuff. It’s the perfect balance of being lazy and productive at the same time.

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend! We’ve got cleaning, yard-work, and hanging out with friends on the schedule. Starting with roller-skating tonight.

  6. Great stripes. I too have a huge stack of books to get through. Some have been on my shelf for far too long and some just need to be finished already. I am a multi book reader, unfortunately. It draws my attention away too often.
