Guys, it has turned out to be difficult eating healthy during the summer months. So many fun things to do, see, eat, drink. We really have been enjoying this super busy time! However, just as I said in my blog post and youtube video about how to start eating healthy and why, I am feeling less than awesome physically and mentally. It's so crazy how nutrition can effect your WHOLE life. I'm excited to slowly start fueling my body with these good foods again but I will by no means feel guilt if I indulge in my favorite Taco Joint chips, salsa and taco or a delicious brewski (beer, lol). So come shopping with us in this silly vlog!
I started this beautiful Sunday off at 8am because I was scheduled to sing on the worship team at church. It was sooooo good. I really want to sing more often - it used to be an absolute daily thing for me! After that, we ran home and I changed into my trusty, DIY'd cut-off jean shorts and threw a button down around my waist. We gave Marble plenty of kisses and rushed off to grab lunch at Rusty Taco. Sooo yum. We were in need of groceries and so we popped over to a very, super busy Central Market to load up on the goods. We are kinda obsessed with Central Market – it’s a happy place for us, haha.
We then cruised home and unloaded all our goodies – see some below! Oh, and Daniel surprised me with a HUGE bag of something I love…watch the video to find out;) So sneaky, Alyssa!
I had trouble with my computer and lost an entire video project and so I convinced (like he ever needs convincing!) Daniel to walk over and grab a drink before dinner. He complied with a huge grin.
I hope you guys like these vlogs! They are seriously my favorite to watch and I love capturing edited memories of our days together. I am excited to look back on these one day and even show our future kiddos!
A few food items from the video...
The amount of love I have for this lil' DIY is ~out of bounds~ (my husband might hate me for that quote). Honestly, this DIY idea came from a ruined thrifted men's shirt because I washed it with colors and the collar and sleeve cuffs were WHITE. Oops. But this is my journey, I make mistakes and then I ~fix~ them with creativity (ha) and then I am left with the coolest top that I get soooo many compliments on. I'm the laziest person when it comes to creating things, DIY-ing things, throwing things together... I just don't feel like things should take a lot of time and money, unless it's something you love. That's why this DIY is a little choppy, but in the coolest way. Check out the video so you can wear a cool top just like this one! AND GUYS, this project only costs $0-3 (depending on the price you get for your thrifted men's shirt or if you just steal one from your pops or man!). I styled this cool top two different ways but I am dreaming up of all the other ways it can be worn! Check out below how I styled this top and check out the video below for the video tutorial! PS: You need this versatile piece in your life. "Just do it" - Nike
This top is so easy and breezy - I was glad that the fabric of this thrift store men's shirt was nice and light. Make sure you like the texture and size of the shirt you pick up for this project!
For this second look, I decided to mix it up and grabbed a silk scarf (from the thrift store!) on the way out. I loved adding this around my waist and making this crop top look a little more appropriate. I LOVED how this turned out! It covered up my belly but also just emphasized my waist, added a pop to this cool look and gave the back of the shirt a ruffled, cool effect.
GUYS. We are back from Mexico (and technically Conroe too because we spent a weekend with my fam in my hometown). I'm feeling so refreshed and #blessed to be back in Dallas with my fur baby, Marble. Getting to spend a weekend with both Daniel and Marble in my hometown with my family was the icing on the "relaxation station" cake. I really missed them. I definitely need to make more time to drive the 3+ hours to see them.
ANYWAY - this vlog is silly, random and totally us. We made burgers at home (all with super healthy ingredients!) and made a lil' trip for one of Daniel's favorite "go-to" beers. Goals, right?
I'll be editing and uploading what photos we have from our Cancun vacation. We were pretty absorbed in relaxing and mentally just chilling so I kinda failed at getting video footage and tons of quality photos. But I shall share what I have, none the less!
Have you been to Cancun? We really wished we had explored more and will definitely be back!
I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
