Guys I leave for Florida in ONE day! I absolutely cannot wait! I’m going to Orlando for my sororities convention. I was so incredibly blessed to receive a scholarship and get to go for almost nothing, and it’s being held at Disneyworld and I’m excited out of my mind!
It should be a weekend filled with fun, sisterhood, and disney!!
Sorry, I’m not sorry.
Traveling always calls for a new Vera Bradley! I’m flying United and they charge $25 to check a bag, and I’d much rather spend that money on disney and sigma things, and since I’ll only be there 4 days, I’m taking everything in my carry on. So I needed a big enough bag for all my stuff! I had a coupon plus there was a sale so I took a lovely solo trip to the mall stopped in my favorite store, got a beautiful new bag, got a starbucks and had some me time on my day off last week. It was wonderful!
Two of my most favorite things
So for those of you who don’t know of my Vera Bradley addiction, I’ll fill you in. It’s out of control, I can admit it. But I have no intention of stopping, I love it! And there’s always something new and pretty to buy! Yeah, I’ve almost completely lost it.
The evolution of my collection over the last two years
Anytime I travel anywhere, I use about 90% of my Veras haha.
I love everything about traveling, no matter how big or small of a trip. I love luggage, I love packing, I love airports, all of it! Most people find that stuff stressful, but I love it.
I’ve been off carbs again this week, to cleanse before my trip. I did it for 2 weeks and lost 7 pounds. Then I took a week off, and now I’m back at it again. I’m gonna be less strict while on my trip, it’s supposed to be fun after all! Anyways, I’ve been spending a lot more time in the kitchen and getting a lot better at cooking! Here’s some low carb things I’ve been eating the past few weeks:
Baked chicken breast with a side of homemade guacamole
Chicken breast over a bed of spinach with bacon bits and oil and vinegar
Desert! Berries and chocolate chips
Spinach salad with chicken, strawberries, and bacon bits. With a side of fruit and cheese!
So as you can see, lots of spinach and chicken, haha. No carbs doesn’t give you a lot of options. I’ve been cooking more for my boyfriend too, which is helping a lot. He works almost all day, every day so he hardly ever eats home cooked meals. When he comes over I try to make him something other than a sandwich or a bowl or cereal.
This is french toast made from homemade, whole-wheat bread my mom makes, an over easy egg, and a chicken apple sausage
There’s gonna be even more Disney in my life once I get back from Florida. Two weeks after I get back, Kurtis, Mollie and I are going to San Diego to visit family and go to Disneyland! We’ll also be going to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo while we’re there. I couldn’t be more excited. We even got super cheesy matching tank tops to wear to Disneyland.
They even say His and Hers on the back. Hey, I’m going all out.
Not much longer!
Needless to say, this summer is proving to be a great one. I even feel confident in a bikini these days, I’ve found I have a real passion for nutrition and clean eating, I get to go to Disneyland AND Disneyworld, and spend time with my wonderful boyfriend and family.
Couldn’t be happier.
