Last Summer Roundup

Hello, hello my friends.

This Monday, I start school, which means that summer is coming to a close. I thought it would be a good idea to give you guys a final week recap, seeing as my weeks have mostly looked the same.

I've been spending a lot a lot of time outside/on trails. In fact, as much time as possible. Being inside at work for 6+ hours just makes me wanna get out in the sunshine.

Hike one:

Hike two:

On another note, I decided to start up my yoga program that I've been neglecting for, well, months, and did a routine focusing solely on my lower body. And MY GOD, people. The legs. They hurt. Hurt. Hurt. I think it's safe to say that after months of low-impact activity, anything can cause DOMS. Like, severe DOMS. Gah.

I've also been working on my online school work, attempting to get ahead. But gah the motivation is so hard to muster! Especially when learning physical science....meh. (Don't worry, it's easy stuff and I'm at least a week ahead).

On Wednesday, I actually got dressed/did my hair/put on makeup and went to see a movie with my friend! (Yep we hang out a lot...obvs). 

Onto the fooooooood. In case you haven't noticed, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day....forever....

I've been wanting "colder" snacks, so yogurt+fruit has been my main choice lately. 

Seriously, this trail mix is freaking addicting.

And some savory snippets for your convenience:

To be honest, I'm pretty excited and ready to be back in school - reality just hasn't hit yet, I guess. I still haven't bought any school supplies or books (!!).

Also, I need to get my sleep cycle/circadian rhythms back to normal from all my late-night Netflix marathons....yeep. Even when I read to wind down, I still don't turn my lights off til 12:30! That's waayy too late for me, apparently. Naps for the win.

Well, that's all I have for ya! This summer has been a very different summer than the past - I mostly worked, slept, hiked, slept more, ate good food, and Netflixed. I had a lot less concrete "plans," no real vacation-y things, but I was busier than I've ever been, and I'm so thankful for the season of life that I'm in. You just gotta embrace where God has you!

Have a wonderful weekend, my darlings!


  1. You start school so early! I don't start until after Labor Day. I'm LOVING all the eats, as always. That green smoothie in the mason jar looks profesh! (definitely just made that a word :P) I'm going to go do some yoga right now. It's been WAY too long and I'm craving a different workout than running!

    1. Ahh girl! That is really late! I also don't get a Fall break this year because I went back 2 weeks later than the regular school system.

      Go get at that yoga! It's awesomeness!!!

  2. Ahh I can't believe your summer break is already coming to a close! Your hikes, eats, and selfies are looking fabulous as always. And ohhhh man do I know how you feel about those DOMs. I did a lower body workout a couple days ago and walking was THE struggle yesterday.

  3. Have a great start to your new school year! I cannot wait to keep up on everything! All of your food looks delicious, as per usual. :)

  4. Are you looking forward to school? Most post secondary students are!

  5. Thank you for making me feel un-alien; after a loooong period of barely any "workouts"...incline WALKS on the treadmill get my legs burny and tired. And Pilates? Holy macaroni - my core has never felt more floppy :D .
    Your blog is fabulously cheery girl... I "forget" about it sometimes, but I'm always smiling after reading up :) .
