Tell Me Something Tuesday: Mid-Year Update - What Have you Been up To

6/29: Mid-year update: what have you been up to?

HOW ON EARTH IS IT ALMOST JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like this year is getting away from me. So insane. 

Gah. I am behind in my overall reading goal but I know I'll catch up. I do not read as much in the summer and spring especially since we bought the house a couple years back. Lots of chores outside which that is mainly what we have been doing in-between wedding planning and seeing family/friends. 

I've been catching up on my shows and movie list. Still wish I had time to watch more!

Recently got myself a smartwatch to monitor my steps, heart rate, sleep, and etc. I'm trying to make sure I get my steps in and keep active-ish even while I work. It's helped! It has a fun function that reminds me to get active if I've been sitting for more than 45 mins. 

Let's see.....what else......

Not much else.... 

OH! I haven't had time to craft or paint, but I've done some tinkering around. Even tried my hand at oil pastels. Eee. That will take practice but it's been fun. 

That's all I got I think. :) 

Enjoy my recent project. My dad made me a shoe rake/table for this little cubby I have in the front room. I tried my hand at wood staining and I painted this little sign too. Also, found this adorable fake plant set-up at Michaels. ^_^ #proud.

Love the craft projects! I also tend to read less in the summer - I'm spending more time with friends and family. I hope you have a great summer ahead!

I read less in summer, too, mostly because I'm outside. Yay for your cute shoe rack table looking great and finding the right touch in decor to go with it. Sounds like you've had a good first half of the year with house, wedding, and work plans getting done.

Like the shoe rack table. So handy and brightens up that space.
