Taking a Timeout

Hi everyone!

So I have some sad news…at least it makes me sad! I’m going to have to take a break from blogging right now. Life and my internship are just crazy busy and I don’t have the extra time to dedicate to blogging.

These past few weeks blogging has become an absolute chore and I’m not enjoying it. I’ve never wanted blogging to feel that way. To me, blogging has always been something fun and something that I love to do. But right now I barely feel like I can relax and have some semblance of a life while completing my internship and two associated projects. I’m overwhelmed as it is and I don’t need blogging to add to that or else I know I will come to hate it. And that is definitely not something I want to happen.

I don’t think I will give up blogging forever, because I honestly believe that I will miss the writing and creative aspect of it….and more importantly I will miss all of you! My hope is to come back to more regular blogging once my internships are done in December…but we’ll see!

Right now my focus needs to be on the life right in front of me and not one that occurs online. I need to dedicate most of my focus to my internship in order to succeed. And I need to dedicate my time outside of that to the people in my life and to things like wedding planning.

I am so sorry to leave all of you right now. I will truly miss my readers and all of the blogs that I read! You all have become such an important part of my life and this entire blogging experience has been wonderful and life changing (in a good way!).

I wish you all the absolute best. Know that I love you! And that I will be thinking of you and catching up with blogs when I can. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to pop up every now and then and update you with my life. But right now I’m not going to make promises that I may not be able to keep. I hope you understand!

Nike LunarGlide+ iD

Hi everyone!!

I have such an exciting thing to share with you all today :D. I was recently selected by Glam Media to take part in a little program with Nike! This involves me designing my very own Nike LunarGlide+ shoes through NikeiD. Um seriously, when I got this opportunity I squealed with joy a tiny bit hehe.

The Nike LunarGlide+ iD is a lightweight shoe that is responsive, has “lunarlon” cushioning, and has a flywire lacing system that helps provide comfort, support, and stability. NikeiD allows people to create a personalized shoe. And the NikeiD exclusive options on the LunarGlide+ iD includes: adding a fade to the upper, mixing multiple midsole colors, and choosing a reflective inner sleeve for added visibility in low light.

I decided to use our wedding colors as inspiration for designing my pair of shoes :). I mean, I have wedding fever so why not let that carry over to something completely non-wedding related?

I knew that a straight orange color might be a little much for me on the shoes, so I decided to search and make sure that I liked blue and coral together. And I did :).

So, let’s take a little look at this customization process shall we?

I decided to have a solid color instead of going for the faded look and made the inner sleeve blue instead of reflective.

I also made the dynamic flywire blue because that color can be seen under the mesh part and I didn’t want two colors coming through.

Next I made the swoosh a coral color. Our wedding colors are more orange instead of coral, but like I said, the orange was just a bit much for me…it was too loud.

I made the midsole colors blue and white to keep it looking uniform and not too busy.

Then I went a little cray cray and made the laces coral ;).

Can you see what I wrote for my personalized toungue iD?? It says LOVE on the right shoe and LIFE on the left one. So looking at it you would read LOVE LIFE…and I love that!

Here is the final look!! Isn’t it so pretty?? I have a feeling that every time I wear these babies I’m going to be reminded of my wedding haha.

The customization process for the LunarGlide+ NikeiD was really simple to navigate and I loved playing around with all of the options! I think it’s amazing to have the ability to customize a shoe to look the way you want. I mean, not everyone likes the same color combinations and this allows your preferences to be utilized and you can make something truly unique.

I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to customize a pair of my own LunarGide+ NikeiD shoes :D. I can’t wait til they come in and I can parade them around for all to see!

I hope you all have an awesome day!

A Typical Day While Completing My Internship

Hey there!

No, I haven’t disappeared…I’ve just been crazy busy. Which is why I’ve decided to establish a new “blogging policy” like my friend Brittany did a couple weeks ago. You see, I’ve been so busy with my internship that the past couple of days I honestly thought about stopping my blog. But then, I saw Lindsay last night at a a restaurant and it made me realize how much I would miss blogging and this wonderful community.

So, part one of my new “policy” is that I’m going to post when I feel like and when I have time….and only then. I’m not going to force myself to bust out a post just because I feel like I should. Frankly, that will cause me stress and give you some poor reading material. I will try to post 3 times a week, but if it doesn’t happen then so be it. I need to live my life and dedicate the necessary amount of time and energy to my internship!

Part two of this policy is that I will only comment if I feel like I have the time to. I love reading blogs and will absolutely continue to read all of yours, but sometimes commenting adds a lot of time to that process which I just don’t have. I’m truly sorry about this. Just remember, that even though I may not comment on your blog as much doesn’t mean that I’m not reading!

Okay…so, wanna see a day in my life while at my internship? Then you can understand how busy I am haha. I saw Chelsey write a similar post about a typical summer day for her and was inspired :D. This is an example of a day this week…some days I start around 8:30 and other days I start at 7:30AM:

  • 5:00 AM – Wake up and change into workout clothes
  • 5:15 AM – Workout (either in basement of at the gym)
  • 6:30 AM – Shower
  • 6:45 AM – Eat breakfast and drink coffee and read some blogs
  • 7:15 AM – Get ready for work
  • 7:30 AM – Pack lunch
  • 7:45 AM – Leave and drive to work
  • 8:15 AM – Arrive at work
  • 8:20 AM – Start day at work
  • 6:45 PM – End day at work
  • 6:50PM – Drive home and make calls to Chris, family members, and friends
  • 7:15 PM – Arrive home and eat dinner
  • 7:45 PM – Plan treatment activities for the next day
  • 8:30 PM – Start to nod off on the couch because I’m so tired…lay there and watch tv or peruse the internet
  • 9:00PM – Get ready for bed
  • 9:15 PM – Go to bed
Um…no wonder I slept for almost 11 hours last night haha. The days where I start at 7:30AM I get off work a little earlier and have some more time in the evening which is nice.

I hope you all understand where I’m coming from and stick with me as I try to juggle everything at this time. I love you all!! ❤

Have a fantastic weekend 😀
