7•17 | high five for friday!

H54F button


i spent this past weekend in the dallas area on a much needed getaway with some girlfriends.  it was so fun.  🙂  you can read about it HERE.



after the trip, i needed a little resetting.  see picture above.  add the excessive eating and lack of sleep during the trip to my lingering intestinal issues from my car accident and i needed to start over.  some soup and some shakes did the trick.  i’m not going to say it was detoxing or anything because it wasn’t that serious, but me (and my stomach) feel SO much better.


i took up swimming again this week on the advice of my doctor.  he said no running or weights so i took what i could get after not working out for almost three weeks.  i swam in high school so it was natural.  and really, really difficult.  but i was always the kind of girl who liked the practices over the meets.  i like the challenge.  bonus, it’s great exercise and it feels good to be active again.


i’m so glad i got to see my little sister during my trip.  it was a brief visit but i’m grateful for it.  it was definitely one of my best moments of the week.  🙂



i got my preordered copy of “go set a watchman” by harper lee on tuesday.  i have started it but haven’t finished it.  i don’t know what to think yet.  i’m still torn on reading it at all.  is it really written by harper lee?  was it published without her consent?  i don’t know…  but i can’t resist reading it because “to kill a mockingbird” is one of my favorites ever.  if y’all have read it or have thoughts on it, leave me a comments because i’d like to know!
