It’s Good Friday! I can’t believe that we are about to be celebrating Easter in a few short days and the boys will be heading back to school after having the last week off with me. It seems like the time is ticking away. I know, I know – I say that more often than not, but I can’t help but feel like I’m stuck in an egg timer that speeds up every time I need a moment to really smell the roses. I’m glad I had this time with the twins all week, though they have absolutely kept me on my toes and I feel like I ran the Boston Marathon. My eldest was off to Day Camp all week as a part of a program that he takes part in so the twins and I kept each other busy. Let’s just say there were a lot of books and reading, Legos and food involved, haha! I also took the twins to the doctor for their yearly physical this week and I was off to the doctor the other day to check on my insides. I’m kind of over doctors lately – well, I’ve always been… but the stress level has my brain completely consumed as of late – more on that later. Well, it’s TGIF which means we are just going to enjoy the moments we have the rest of the week… right?
So, here’s what’s going on currently in my life.
Drinking… Water! Yes, we all know I drink water daily, but after my recent doctor’s appointment that is what I’m kind of stuck with. Looks like my Gold Card from Starbucks will be taking a backseat in 2016. Stupid Blood pressure – errrr.
Eating… Well, I wish I were eating a slice of pizza, but since it’s currently breakfast I’m having my green smoothie. What does it consist of you ask? Well… kale, spinach, banana, coconut milk, blueberries and strawberries, almonds and a protein powder additive.
Feeling… Absolutely EXHAUSTED! It may be because of my blood pressure being sky high lately, but I am spent. With the boys home on Spring Break, I’m a bit behind on normal blog stuff, YouTube stuff and overall – but hey, I’m enjoying every minute of it.
Listening… Common Kings. It seems like I have been pulling up their channel on Pandora or Amazon Prime Music a lot lately. Nothing like some awesome local Hawaii roots to set the mood.
Reading… Well – thankfully I’ve been able to get caught up on some magazines from last month. I finished a few books in February so I haven’t picked up anything new. But, I plan to find something interesting and get started on reading something soon. We’ll see – maybe another Book Talk in the works in a month or so.
Watching… Criminal Minds, Little Women L.A., Bring It, and looking forward to Empire. Can you believe the last episode of Criminal Minds? I am still unsure I’ll like the demographic of the team since Derek Morgan will no longer be a part of it… we shall see if I’ll continue watching past this season. I’m looking forward to the new season of Empire though… man – it couldn’t come quick enough.
Loving… Peasant style tops. I have been eyeing them a lot lately and it’s been at least two years since I purchased one so I’m really looking into adding some new ones to my wardrobe. I just picked up this one here in black so you may see it featured here in the coming weeks. You know me, when it comes to clothes – I dance to the beat of my own drum.
Wanting… A beautiful spring season. I love Spring and it is my favorite time of year but with the weird Vog in the skies, it seems like our breathing and my asthma may not be happy. I wish for a beautiful spring filled with dew drops and daisies and beautiful weather with light showers to keep our grounds and greenery lush. I’m not asking for much, am I? lol
Contemplating… Change! The red of my hair has since faded and I’m kind of over it. I have been considering going lighter since the grey that graces my locks is really prominent. We shall see.
Working on… Life! I realized that over the last few years my blog went from being a lifestyle site to being about beauty and over the last year I have been making a change to make this place a lot more personable. Yes, it’s taking me some times… especially since I have established so many awesome beauty contacts, but I miss the old Honeygirl’s World and strive to get it back to that place once again in 2016.
Excited for… Did I mention Empire??? lol J/K. On the real though, I’m excited to have a four day weekend with my husband and sons, family time truly is the most important. I’m excited for some Pastele Stew this Easter Sunday – my husband makes it from scratch. And, I’m excited for where ever 2016 is taking me – so far… just three months in, it has been awesome.
On the blog this week and YouTube Channel I discussed many different things. I didn’t get a post up every day this week, but either way – you can check out this week’s wrap up below:
So that’s it for the week! Those of you that are currently on Spring Break, I hope you are having as much fun as I am. And, those that celebrate Good Friday and/or Easter, I’m sending you many blessings for a wonderful weekend. I’ll be spending time with my four favorite men in my life… pictured above are three of them. Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
