I downloaded this new app on my phone that helps me better track all of the food I eat during the day (it also connects to my apple watch and tells me how many calories I burn throughout the day as well). I've been really good about being honest with myself (even when, last night, Taylor said it would probably be best to not record the fact that I ate two slices of pizza, a couple handfuls of marshmallows, and blackberry cobbler after I had already eaten a really yummy and healthy dinner-- don't worry, I included all of my binging in my food log for the day hahahaha) and it's been super fun to actually keep track of what kinds of foods I consume throughout the day. Oh! It also helps me keep track of how much water I am drinking. Maybe I'm a bit of a nerd, but keeping track of that kind of stuff makes me really, really happy. // We went over to my parent's house last night to enjoy some delicious smoked pizza and game-playing. We brought over our BFF's, Allison and Austin, and introduced them to the madness of my childhood. There are only a few days left before all my younger siblings start school again, which is insane to me, because somehow this summer break flew by! We're soaking up as much as we can in the "final moments" of summer (yes, I'm aware that summer doesn't technically end until Fall officially beings and all that... but as soon as school starts up again, I feel as if summer is as good as gone). // I bought a million fall scents from bath and body works this week-- they had a big ol' sale on wallflowers and candles and now we've got all the goods we need to make sure our house smells divine (and just like autumn!!) for the next year and a half (okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration.. but seriously, fall candles make me so happy). // We move in less than a month! Our new place is still under construction and so we often make little pitstops by it to go and see how things are going (we're clearly not anxious at allllll)-- the walls are painted and the floors are going in! // The moment Tay gets home from work each day is easily the highlight of my entire existence. I love him so. It's probably the highlight of Kingsley's days too because he always goes crazy-- his little legs dancing about frantically while he emits a series of happy squeals in anticipation of Taylor getting down on the ground and petting him.  // Bachelor in Paradise started this week... Taylor is more invested in the show than I am and it cracks me up. We love trashy TV. // We've been seeing a lot of progress in our lives towards some of our biggest goals and desires for our life together-- it's been really cool to see things slowly fall into place one little piece at a time. God is so good to us! We cannot deny His hand in our lives-- especially when things somehow magically work out just the way they're supposed to. // I've upped my reading to finishing two books a week and it's made my heart really happy. // We dropped off a TON of stuff at DI last night and it felt like I lost a million pounds as we drove away and I knew I'd never have to think about any of that stuff ever again. It's been incredibly refreshing to get rid of so much stuff in preparation for our move. There's nothing more exciting and rejuvenating than throwing and giving stuff away!

Austin sat down with a piece of pizza in his hand and fully intented to just sit and chill while consuming it... but one of the legs of his chair somehow managed to sink six inches into the grass for no real reason at all. He just lounged there, continuing to eat his pizza, and said (ever so casually), "Is this supposed to happen??" 

Also, this picture cracks me up because our friend snapped a shot right when we were sarcastically trying to make the broken lighter work by shoving a sparkler into it-- but the best part is the fact that we both look so bored and annoyed by the fact that it wasn't working. hahaha

There's a LOT going on in our life right now. At times I find myself over-thinking things and getting stressed out about things I don't need to be worrying about. I like doing happy lists because they help me to sit and think about the things that have made me happy this week. It's so important to get into the habit of looking for the good! I've got a long way to go before I've mastered the art of positive thinking (something tells me it will be something I will have to consistently work at in life), but I can't deny the way that it makes me feel! So, here's to looking for the good rather than focusing on the bad.
