Looking through my phone I noticed I hardly took any photos during January and it honestly made me kind of sad. I did start taking more videos though, so that was a plus! I’m really hoping to start making videos soon, so stay on the look out for that.
Honestly January is one of my least favorite months. I use to love it because I felt like it was the start of a something new and I’d always push myself to be better than I had been the year before. But now….it just brings me the ever dreaded busy season. Kyle had to go to Wyoming for 5 weeks and it has been truly awful. I did survive though, so that’s a plus!
Since he was gone, I don’t feel like my life was anything exciting. I went out with friends to dinner, still played on my soccer team, and worked on my blog, but overall there wasn’t anything too exciting to report.
Saturdays were the only day I got Kyle for the entire day, so we filled it with spending time together, catching up on errands we needed to run, or doing things around the house that I needed his help with. We also tried to go see movies (like Mary Poppins Returns) or stay at home and relax.
I did take my extensions out, cut my hair, and die it full blonde at the beginning of the month and it was so much fun! I have been loving it. I really loved my extensions, but it’s been a fun change and I’m loving the blonde. I feel like it is me!
I hung out with my best friend (who happens to be my sister in law) Emma last month and got to be with my cute nieces! They live in Heber, which is about a hour away from me, so we don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like, but we always schedule two times a month to make sure to hang out! Isn’t my niece the cutest?
I spent a lot of time on my blog, working on new series like The Happy Life Challenge (see more details on that here) or Styled Like Karli (you can see details here). I did some try ons with Albion Fit and My Sister’s Closet (you can use code “EVERYDAYELLIS” for 10% off) and they were so much fun! I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am for your support.
It was a slow month, but still a good one! Lots of work, lots of missing Kyle, lots of watching The Bachelor, lots of eating out (haha whoops), and lots of loving my life.
