March Goal Recap

Is it just me, or did the month of March drag on for ages? This has been the longest month ever, y'all. But the good thing is that it's over now, and we are solidly in the spring season! Now I've got to start working on my tan so I don't blind people with my paleness this summer. But anyway, goal recap:

nostalgia (n):
a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time

Weather tends to remind me of certain places. Hot, humid days remind me of home and being close to the beach. And being at home reminds me of childhood. And then cool, fall mornings remind me of my youth, growing up, and being in elementary school. I also have "Disney World" days, which are hard to describe, but it has to do with a cool morning that you know will lead to a hot day; there's also a specific scent in the air. 

And now I have weather that reminds me of England, and the past few days have been just that. It's comfortably cool, and the weather will climb to a perfect 70 degrees by late afternoon. There's no humidity. It's close to how every day was last summer while my mom and I were exploring London. And while I'm applying my makeup I'm instantly transported to the bathroom in our little flat in Kensington, and walking to my car is reminiscent of walking to the train station at Earls Court. The weather these past few days has been so eerily similar to our English adventure that I briefly forget that I'm in Tennessee, and I'm finding myself with massive cravings for bangers n mash and a giant clock.

I missed a post! This weekend totally exhausted me, so I did absolutely nothing yesterday but go to work. So here we are with a very unusual Tuesday post.

This weekend Bryan and I went down to Atlanta to celebrate Bryan's lack of a spring break. (Grad school just doesn't care about spring break, y'all, but I have no sympathy because I don't have a spring break either.) So to get some sort of a "vacation" we decided to go visit friends and family. Saturday night, we went to dinner with Bryan's family. Then one thing led to another, and the next thing I know we're on a spontaneous adventure complete with 360 degree views of the city.

Wish I Was There

The weather in Knoxville has been AMAZING these past two days! We've had warmer weather this week, but it was raining. But yesterday and today have been just gorgeous. All this warmth and sun are only making me crave for a trip to the beach. I haven't been home since New Year's, so I think I'm due for a visit. In the meantime, all I can do is daydream about all the beautiful beaches I'd love to be relaxing on right about now. Here they are in no particular order:

After mine and Bryan's trip in December, I've been itching to get back. It's not like it's that hard to get to anyhow.

Getting Fit with Blogilates

This past week I started working out. Yes, you read that right. I actually got my butt off the couch and have begun to make the effort to get my body in the shape it should be. And I've actually really enjoyed it. I found Cassey Ho's YouTube channel several months ago, but it wasn't until this past week that I actually started following her videos.

Interior Design Inspo: Office Spaces

So I've been looking for a job for a while now. We all know that. And I'm still waiting for that perfect opportunity to come along, but in the meantime I've gotten abnormally excited about office spaces. I've always been a big lover of office supplies (Office Depot is one of my retail happy places), but just recently have I started browsing Pinterest for beautiful and inspiring office spaces. There are some really great ones out there, y'all!

March Goals

The first of the spring months is here! Hello, March! Even though you wouldn't know it because there's still disgusting snow all over the place. I'm ready for it all to melt; I am not made for this environment. Anyway, goals for this month:
