In a Pinch // No. 16

Two weeks of pinches in one because the blog has taken a backseat to my busy, busy life... Here we goooo.

Back to school, back to school... Oh wait. This is the first time in 19 years {NINETEEN. YEARS.} that I haven't headed back to school. It's definitely bittersweet. I've never really loved school and making money is so so so much better. Even with the 60 hour work weeks. #busyseason

Anyways, this past week felt really off. I was exhausted 24/7, couldn't get myself to do anything substantial plus my regular diet was thrown off since Thursday. I think I'm going to start journaling when I have brain fog as I think it has a lot to do with what or when I eat. I'll keep y'all updated. Hopefully I'll get over this "blah" feeling soon.

Last weekend I headed to Oklahoma for a wedding. It was really fun, but I still feel drained from traveling and it's only Wednesday so here's to hoping I gain some energy and enthusiasm for the week to come! For Labor Day I have a dear friend coming into town, a Luke Bryan concert when my blonde babes, and then work on Monday. I guess growing up means working Holidays. Meh.

ONE // Arbonne body cleanse on deck to get ready for wedding weekend.

TWO // First oat milk latte at Dollop and I'm sold. Currently seeking out where to buy Oatly in Chicago.

THREE // Made some vegan fried rice this week for meal prep. I think I've decided that I'm over being vegan for the rest of my life. I had the dream, I did the dream, I'm over the dream.

FOUR // I love wine and cheese dates after a long day.

FIVE // Wine and cheese date also turned into a wine tasting... And a newfound love with Framboise Iambic.

SIX // Sweetest baby bunny picture all the way from the Lone Star State.

SEVEN // Sometimes all you need in life is a relaxing night in, Olivia Benson, and Peanut M&Ms.

EIGHT // i TRULY love you. ;)

NINE // The ONLY picture I got from the Air and Water show. My photography skills were impacted because I was more interested in something else... #missedconnection

TEN // Post-work photoshoot in the prettiest city.

ELEVEN // Wine + Cheese = Happy EMB

TWELVE // Finished my 2018 reading challenge! I sat at the airport last Saturday and finished four books. I think that's a sign I read too many books at once... {As always, follow me on Goodreads!}

THIRTEEN // Shake your booty, Winnie.

FOURTEEN // #TakinAkins

FIFTEEN // Fangirling over meeting Jake Trotter in OK.
