Goals. Goals. Goals.
When I sat down to write about my 2018 fitness goals, I knew that I wanted this year to be different. I wanted to stick with my goals and I wanted them to be as simple as possible. Here is what I came up with:
I know myself and I know that if I’m going to stick realistic fitness goals, I need to tailor them in a way that fits my lifestyle. My journey so far has already involved a few “wake up calls”. Example: When you overhear a Grandma bragging that she took more steps in a day than you. You’ll have to keep reading for the full story on that…
I hope everyone is enjoying the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. You can catch me over here browsing Pinterest and pinning holiday content to my boards nonstop. If we are not Pinterest friends, let’s change that ASAP.
As we enter the heart of “gift-giving” season, I’m reminded once again that I need to make a Christmas list. Clothing and gift cards have always topped my list in years past, however, 2017 will be a bit different. This Christmas, I am listing items that can improve my blog and social media. Improving my blog photography has been on the top of my “to-do” list for quite awhile now. Almost ALL of my photos on social media and the blog are shot on an iPhone because I hate lugging around a bunch of photography equipment. Maybe that is the minimalist in me? I also don’t have the luxury of an “insta-husband” to lug around said photography equipment because mine is most likely studying or flying. #flightschoolrocks
This past month I was given the incredible opportunity to demo and review the iPhone 8+ courtesy of Verizon Wireless. Not only was using this smartphone an incredible experience, I was amazed at the quality of Verizon service compared to my normal service provider. If you’re in the Pensacola area, I HIGHLY recommend switching to Verizon. I absolutely did not want to go back to my old phone and service provider after this demo. I experienced ZERO dropped calls or the dreaded “searching for bars” at inopportune times. Verizon had me SOLD within the first few days.
The military will move us to many different places throughout the years. Growing up a pilot’s daughter, I now realize how lucky I was to travel around the USA and abroad for free. Oddly enough, my family never made it out to the Gulf Coast, so I’m incredibly thankful that as an adult I have the opportunity to live here for a short time.
I have always found that the best way to get to know a new town is to EAT your way through it. Try every restaurant and local spot that you can, as long as your budget matches. Robert and I do not eat out much – we normally choose to cook at home in order to save money, but when we do go out we always hit up the local spots in town. Here are a few of my favorite places in this charming Gulf Coast town:
This past week I tagged along with my fashion blogger friend Rachel Wehring, owner of the blog What is She Wehring. Rachel is my old next door neighbor from our first apartment complex in Florida. We’re both Texans, love dogs and wine. How perfect, right?
We had always talked about taking photos together in downtown Pensacola, so I decided that we would finally set a date for it.
Hello, Friends! Life has been great here in the Carey household and Florida lately. We have celebrated a few exciting events since my last post.
