What I Listened To

Where I Went

  • Pretty much anywhere that had a blooming field of wildflowers haha! 
  • Carrizo Plain – Loved seeing the Super Bloom in action! I’ve never seen so many wildflowers in my life <3 See my posts from this location here and here.
  • Ensenada, Mexico – This was my first time to Mexico and it was a nice first trip. We went to visit La Bufadora and the scenery was just gorgeous!

Seasonal Bucket List Check In

You all LOVED my Spring Bucket List post and many of you mentioned creating your own – YAY! Here’s how I did this past month:

  • Go on a Roadtrip to See the “Super Bloom” – Mission accomplished!
  • Plan a Vacation – We leave for our next one on Friday!! Any guesses as to where we’re going?
  • Get Outside More – I’ve been trying to take advantage of this nice weather by going for walks and sitting out on the patio <3
  • Buy Some Cute Workout Wear and hit the gym – so I didn’t buy any cute workout wear BUT I did go to the gym for the first time in months – YAY!
  • Go Through Spring/Summer Wardrobe and Donate – in process!
  • Go on a Cruise – check! 😉

 

Annual Goals Check In

Anddd of course, I have to check in with my annual goals 😉

  • Make Health a Priority – As you know, I’ve been experienced health issues for quite some time (you can read about it in more detail in this post). In March things got pretty serious so I had some blood work and an ultrasound done. Everything came back negative, so I decided to look more into my diet. Over the past month, I’ve been experimenting with dairy (taking it out and putting it back in for a week at a time) and have noticed an astonishing difference. I took a food intolerance test and just got my results back yesterday and well… let’s just say that I may have FINALLY found the issue(s). I’ve ruled out a ton of things but now I’m pretty certain that stress AND food issues (which could have come from the stress) are the main cause of my symptoms. I will share my results with you on Friday!! Also, unrelated but I now have carpel tunnel  – I cannot get a break haha!
  • Be More Selfish – The older I get, the more important my time becomes. I’ve been learning how to say “no”  to everyone else so I can say “yes” to myself more. This month, I went completely off the grid for the first time in FOUR years… and it felt amazing! Of course, I won’t be disappearing al the time, but it was a really good feeling to have some much needed time to myself.

What I’m Looking Forward to in May

  • My 6th Wedding Anniversary! <3 Where/how should we celebrate? 
  • More travel!
  • Watching the new Avengers movie haha!
  • Making health changes and perhaps an even more life-changing decision. 

 

Hope you loved my April 2019 month in review!
