What I’ve been up to while Hailey is gone

I have been working a lot of extra hours at my part time job lately.  This weekend will be the third weekend in a row of working there plus every day at the bank all day all week long.  I am starting to feel pooped out.  But, next week Hailey, Jackson, and I are going camping with the rest of the fam so a little r and r is right around the corner.

Last week I headed to my friend Jackielyn’s tattoo studio, Eye-Candy Ink to get some of my tattoos touched up.

Her shop is not your typical tattoo shop.  It is an art gallery, a pottery gallery, and a tattoo shop all in one.  The decor is retro, classy, and comfortable.  Plus Jackie is a friend of mine so that makes the experience even better!

She touched up the stars on my ankle, plus added a few more.

And she touched up the orchid on my floral sidepiece.

I also had the opportunity to reconnect with some girlfriends I hadn’t seen for about a year and a half.  I met them all through a previous relationship and when that ended so did all of the friendships unfortunately.  I mett up with the girls and we had so much fun!  I really am hoping to stay in touch with them all.  I missed them so much!

I have been doing some healthy meal and snack planning for camping next week.  For probably the first time ever my sister, my mom, and I are all eating healthy at the same time!  We all struggle with the ups and downs of the food rollar coaster and it seems that we are never all on the up side together.  Right now we are, so I want to make sure to plan some healthy real food meals and real food snacks.

I had a few hours off of work this afternoon since I worked last Saturday so I took advantage of the free time and went to a new to me health store that a friend told me about called The Red Raddish.

It was very cute and quaint!  They really didn’t have too much more to offer than what I am able to purchase in the organic section of my grocery store, plus it was kind of a drive.

All in all I have been doing good distracting myself and keeping busy while Hailey is gone.  Only 4 more days to go till she comes home!! I know she is having a blast, but I miss her!

  1. your healthy snacks look great!

    i’m jealous of your tattoos. i really REALLY want to get another one. i just have to decide what and where.

    • I found some good food at my Festival in the natural/organic aisle. Beanitos are great chips with just a few ingredients, and Food should Taste Good has some good chips, I will bring some camping. I am still eating lots of chia seed, they now carry it in bulk at Festival. I guess that will be something good to bring camping, a quick meal with water added, and berries. I am bringing canned pumpkin also, to mix in with yogurt.

      • I just bought some chia seeds but haven’t used them yet. They didn’t have them at my Festival, but I found them at the Red Radish. I have been mostly shopping in the organic section. i am finding that even though it is more expensive, I am eating way less than normal because I am eating actual food instead of processed chemicals.
