Back By Popular Demand!

Hey Everyone!!!

I'm back!!!!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has kept in touch with me during my hiatus. Also, I have been consistently reading all of your blogs as well I just kinda dropped off the face of the universe for a little bit ha!

Anyways  I basically went through a really rough time and went through a bad breakup and then two weeks later my Grandma unexpectedly passed away. I have never had anyone close to me pass away in my whole life and it was a total shock to me and it took a long time for me to cope with.

However, today would have been my Grandma's 80th birthday and I thought there wouldn't be a better time to get back on track and start communicating with all my blog ladies again! :)

I have given some updates on my life over this summer via instagram but I'll just use this post as a pic overload and some highlights of the summer!

To be honest dieting and workout out took a back seat while I just dealt with life basically but I'm more determined then ever to get back on this bandwagon! Cuz that's what life is all about right?

Well, first of all I finally bought my first house! I am so excited! I haven't moved any of my stuff in because we've been taking time painting pretty much the whole house and cleaning (seriously I had no idea people don't clean their own house when they move)

Here are some of the pics of the half bath downstairs

Here is the Guest bath upstairs

The master bedroom...

And if you follow me on IG you've already seen this but I recovered dining room chairs I found on craigslist. After is one the left. Before is on the right

I promise I will take all pics of the house once its finished so I can share with you guys :)

And here are some highlights of tailgating this past weekend for the Iowa/Iowa State game :)

Tonight I am going out with my family to celebrate what would have been my Grandma's Birthday! Tomorrow I'll be recapping more of summer and anything else you guys want to know!

So glad I'm back!!! :)
