So apparently habits are hard to keep up when YOU DON’T REALLY TRY. Who would have thought? Anywho, I was MIA all weekend so that I could spend the precious time I had to be in the present with the people I had the opportunity to see.

This weekend was mostly spent celebrating relationships, whether it be my own or purchasing gifts for friends that are moving into a new (scary) season of MARRIAGE. I have a number of weddings throughout the summer to go to so I have weddings on the brain, and I’m sure a post or two (or ten) will probably be about it! I was surprised with 6th-row tickets to the Tour de Compadres tour (needtobreathe, Ben Rector, Colony House, Drew Holcomb, etc) on Saturday and it was SO GREAT. I loved every second of it; the music was FANTASTIC (and Ben Rector is my absolute favorite).


See picture above WITH NO ZOOM!! We were SO CLOSE and all the music was great. I’m not feeling super eloquent using the word “so” and seeing how many times I can say great. It reminds me of the Dead Poet’s Society quote about using the word very:

So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.

Good thing I’m not trying to woo any women!

Well, onto the habits part. I did awfully with the blog posts (obviously) and did slightly less terrible with the steps. I was unsuccessful on Friday, but more than doubled what I needed on Saturday (some of which were probably aided with clapping on the concert, but that still counts, right?). I’m guessing I also made my step count on Sunday, but I don’t know for sure since I left my tracker on the charger all day, but I think I made it.

I struggled a lot with what my next habit should be. Eat something green with every meal? Declutter something in my life every day? Give up TV? Those will probably be coming up in a few weeks, but the new one to try right now is: wake up and get out of bed at 5:30 every morning – but of course I didn’t decide this until today when I got out of bed at 7:40 🙂 It will help me have more hours in my day to eat breakfast, have my quiet time, and beautify myself as opposed to rushing to get out the door before 8AM. I’ve always been a morning person, if you consider waking up before all your friends in college after a long night as being a morning person, but it will definitely be a stretch to be up before the sun.
