August Favorites

I actually intended to write this post to go live this past Friday. Life had other plans. So instead of Friday Favorites you get August Favorites with the Friday Favorites graphic.

READ:
I have not read a lot this month (even though I was supposed to.) But there are 2 books that I finished and love and 1 that I am working on.

1.   I love Sarah Mae. And this book was what I needed as I read it. I am trying to concentrate on finding adventure in the everyday and being content where I am. The lessons from the book are numerous and worth every second spent reading it.

2.  I hate change. The irony in that is that my life is full of change right now. Good and bad. But reading this book has helped a lot. I will have a full review later next week.

3. I am reading this one right now. It is a slow read. But it is a good book so far.

WATCH:
Well- the boys and I went to see "Ant Man" in theaters but we really have not watched anything else. Oh- I went and saw "Vacation" with my mom. Not a kid movie at all. But Thor was in it so there was that.

WEAR:
I have really just worn scrubs and yoga pants this past month. BUT I bought a new pair of Danskin Yoga pants from Walmart that I am in love with. I really should go buy another pair. They are the best.

LISTEN:
Ed Sheeran's "X- The Deluxe Edition" is a favorite for my whole family right now. I also have had "Fight Song" on repeat lately.


IN OTHER NEWS:
I start a new job tomorrow. I am going back into therapy and driving an hour each way for the job. I am TERRIFIED! I am so scared that I can't do it anymore or that they are not going to think I am a good fit. It is definitely more money coming in but there is not flexibility which is something I am used to. So prayers would be appreciated.

Also- because of above mentioned new job, I also have a new vehicle. My poor Tahoe just doesn't get good gas mileage and it is now a must. So I went last weekend and bought a Dodge Caravan. I LOVE IT! I am already spoiled. Hand free phone, plays the music from my phone, and has a DVD player for the kids. They will beg to go somewhere just to watch the TV now.

I know that all my posts lately have been kind of gloomy. And yes, I am going through a very rough time in my personal life right now. But I am still not ready to share that with anyone or talk about it in a deeper context on here yet. Let's just say that when I come out of the other side of this, I will be a better person and a lot stronger than I ever thought I could be.
