Life Lately

In general I try to stay away from these type posts because I feel like an over sharer in them. Like do you really care what's been going on in my life lately? Probably not. But I feel like I've been so MIA lately everywhere I could get away with this without feeling weird about it. So with no further ado, here is what's been happening in my life lately

I'm loving my job, but it's a little more stressful than I expected. I'm a meeting coordinator for an association so it's been really interesting to see events from a totally different side than my previous events job in Vail. But, my director put in his notice within my first 60 days which is challenging on its own. Combine that with the fact that we're about 4 weeks out from a major conference and its a huge stressful challenge. Luckily my manager is great so I know we'll get through this.

I'm also loving living in the same town as my boyfriend. Admittedly I was a tiny bit worried that being so close would be bad for our relationship. Prior to this we'd always been long distance and I am fiercely independent and love my "me time." But honestly this has been so so good! I love getting to see him and the pup every day. It's nice to just be able to sit on the couch after work and watch tv without someone having to drive 45 minutes each way or to spontaneously go to a Rangers game because its dollar dog night and tickets are cheap.

Part of what I love about living so close is that we're able to have routines. Every Sunday we go to church in the morning followed by lunch. We're having fun exploring all the delicious restaurants in Dallas. I love looking at the Dallas food instagram hashtags and discovering a new place to add to my list. Some of my favorite posts while I lived in Vail was sharing local spots and I'm hoping to start writing some posts sharing my new favorite Dallas spots.

While eating at all these exciting places has been fun it has certainly not been good for my health. Since moving to Dallas I've gained 8 pounds and that is not okay. While we eat out every Sunday lunch we're also trying to eat healthy during the week to make up for it. I've also realized eating at Sprinkles once a week is not the smartest idea. My brother is getting married next year and I'm using that as my inspiration to get healthy and fit.

And I think that just about does it. What's been going on in your life lately?
