–Does anyone else have a hangover from their book high after yesterday? So many conversations about books, so many news ones added to my to-read list. I love how many book nerds come out of the woodwork on link up day! #booknerd

–I feel guilty that I don’t have any desire to read Jane Austen or Harper Lee books. I just don’t. I have tired before, and I just can’t get in to them. Maybe one day.

–I seriously have been having the hardest time getting back to grain free and pushing myself during my workouts if I am being completely honest. Taking a week off is just long enough to drop all forms of healthy habits. Isn’t that the way? So hard to get going, so easy to let go! Tuesday morning I had an amazing run. Amazing. And now I am back!

The point of this is to say, if you too are struggling just keep going. It will click again! #justkeepswimming

–For months the creative side of my brain has been sleeping. I kept trying to tap back in to it and it refused. I feel like maybe it is starting to wake back up. I have had so many ideas come to me in the last few days. I need to write them all down and never let them go! #creativejuices

–I just happened to look down at the date and realized that in just a month (and two days) I am going to be 32. t-h-i-r-t-y-t-w-o Let that sink in. Yikes. And you know what? Most days, I still don’t feel like an adult. Often times I wonder if I ever will? Or does everyone walk around feeling that way? #feelingold #toysruskid

    I haven’t felt creative in weeks, I don’t know what it is. I’m constantly looking for inspiration but haven’t seen any. I think I have brain fog cause of the heat and humidity.

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer July 15, 2015 at 8:39 am

    What is creativity?! Ha! So there with you girl. So the grain free thing I’m struggling with, too! I’ve made pasta a few nights and we had pizza over the weekend- my two biggest loves! I did buy some chia seeds to try your recipe though! And I’m so glad I’m not the only 30-something who doesn’t feel like an adult… Whew!

  • Reply Lara July 15, 2015 at 9:08 am

    I’m a few years older than you and I still don’t feel like an adult. I figure the longer I deny it, the longer I can keep deceiving myself. lol

  • Reply Snoskred July 15, 2015 at 9:51 am

    I had never read any Jane Austen until I happened to flick channels one night and landed on the 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries, the one with Colin Firth. After that, I wanted to read the book, and then I read the others and fell in love with them all. 🙂

    I’d say give that particular miniseries a go and see if that makes you want to read the books. 🙂

    Ha the scooby funny! I saw that the other week and actually had to send it to J. Made me laugh out loud. Yay for your creative side starting to wake up!

  • Reply Kelli July 15, 2015 at 10:07 am

    I feel like the creative side of my brain just doesn’t work as well as it use too, I need to find a way to give it a boost!

    Yayyyy for book highs!

  • Reply Stephanie July 15, 2015 at 10:08 am

    So true about the habits! It’s said that it takes 20 something days to make a new (good) habit, but I can break it in 20 minutes. That seems totally unfair!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo July 15, 2015 at 10:12 am

    Not paying bills… amen!

    I am actually angry about the Harper Lee book. The family only put it out for their profit. I think its awful they put it out after Lee’s death so they get the gain, not caring if the work was something that should be published.

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New July 15, 2015 at 10:31 am

    Girl don’t feel guilty about not reading Austen books or whoever else! Reading is for enjoyment, if you don’t enjoy it don’t worry about it! 🙂 I’m having a hard time getting back to healthy habits too! I did really good last week and then my in-laws came into town and we’re pretty much eating all the food and my schedule is wack, so I’m chalking this week up to vacation (except not cause I’m still at work all week, lame) and planning starting fresh Monday!

  • Reply Heather July 15, 2015 at 10:32 am

    I have totally felt the creative bug recently, thank goodness!! I need it to come back! Your ecards and memes are all spot on!! Poor Boomer hates the beach 🙁 Birthdays coming up are so exciting!!!

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization Actually July 15, 2015 at 10:36 am

    Lol! Fantastic ecards, as always. I fell off the healthy train, too! Mine was a week of “don’t care,” another week of “remember your goals…” and then finally I made it back in. I don’t even really understand what it was that made it click again, but it’s working and it’s easy again and I feel SOOOO much better. (My confession about books would be that, as much as I like the idea of book link ups, I have trouble finding people who read the same genre as me and then I get bored with it. Oh well.)

  • Reply Erin LFF July 15, 2015 at 11:39 am

    I’ve never read any Jane Austen either…. Oh well! 😉 And write those creative ideas down girl!!! I seriously have pens/paper everywhere (purse, car, nightstand, bathroom haha) because ideas come at the craziest times! I am finally in my groove working out and it feels great to have a weekly routine and feel those muscles hurting again!! 🙂

  • Reply Dorrie @ Bear Den Plantation July 15, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    I have no desire to read the “new” Harper Lee book, either. Look at all the books you’ve read lately! I feel like I’m falling behind- in everything! Can you share some of your creative juices?! Mine seem to come and go before I can think to write anything down!

  • Reply Katie July 15, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    32 isn’t so bad…I’ll take 32 over 22 any day. So much less DRAMA!!! Glad you found your groove again with the healthy lifestyle, I know what that’s like. It’s too easy to make excuses.

  • Reply Teh Megan July 15, 2015 at 1:42 pm

    I never really worried about getting older.. but 30 is the next birthday and I’m already fearing that no one is going to try to celebrate it and I’ll just sitting by myself somewhere being pitiful. When I hear about people having huge celebrations I get super jealous because I don’t believe my friends would ever throw a huge bash for me.

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine July 15, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    Oh girl I bet as awesome as you are, you will NEVER feel your age. I am in my forties and feel (most days) like I am in my twenties. The key, I think, is to not take life to seriously, eat and drink what you want within reason, work out and stay fit and above, LAUGH!!!! The Saturday thing is sooo true. I would go to bed at 6 and wake up at 1 or 2pm, now I am wide awake or my dog wants me awake at 6:30!! Whaaaat!!!? No! Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!!

  • Reply Michael July 15, 2015 at 2:11 pm

    These made me laugh – especially the Scooby and childhood memory ones! I’m 3/4 of the way to 31 and I don’t feel it AT ALL. My “adult” perception is definitely skewed. I still feel like I’m in my early 20s, riding that struggle bus 🙂

  • Reply Mattie July 15, 2015 at 2:15 pm

    I have no desire to read Jane Austen whatsoever. I want to read To Kill a Mockingbird because everyone says it’s so good and a classic…I read it in high school and just don’t remember it at all, so I just have to read it again.

  • Reply Biana Perez July 15, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    haha not paying bills – being an adult is seriously bothersome sometimes!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply kristen July 15, 2015 at 2:42 pm

    boo you and your jane austen apathy. as long as you watch the movies and tv shows or read spin offs, i am okay with that 😉

  • Reply Robin July 15, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    I think a lot of us never become the adults that we imagined when we were kids. Since entering my late twenties, I have realized how many adults don’t have all the answers and are not totally sure of what they are doing.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says July 15, 2015 at 3:42 pm

    My TBR is in pain from all the books I keep adding to it. Between the linkup and BookRiot’s new podcast, I can’t stop adding books. I need help.

    32 is NOT old. You’re still closer to 30 than 40. #justsayin’

  • Reply Morgan July 15, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my very favorite books! You should totally give it another try!

  • Reply Candace July 15, 2015 at 7:16 pm

    hahaha seriously love this!!! yayyy 32! I bet it’ll be an awesome year and you’ll rock it (of course!) I am with you though, wondering when I’ll feel like an adult (but also praying I never have to feel too adult like haha ) I wanna hear your creative ideas!!

    I love Steph and Jana’s linkup because I end up adding so many books to my list. The summer is so hard to stay creative, it’s like the sun and humidity zaps every idea.

  • Reply July 16, 2015 at 5:23 am

    glad to hear your creative side is back in charge! that’s wonderful. i love the childhood memory–too funny!

  • Reply Duckie July 16, 2015 at 7:20 am

    I finally worked out too! Joey actually pushed me into doing it because the kids wanted to try out this new workout his friend sent him so I demonstrated a wall-sit because the kids didn’t know what it was and when I went to sit back down and watch them, Joey said, “Why are you sitting down? You started it, just finish it!” It kicked my ass but it hurt so good.
