Hi Friends!

I was debating on doing this post, because I am still so dead after last night’s episode. The last ever episode of Pretty Little Liars aired last night, and you best believe I cried my eyes out. I actually spent most of my day re-watching the last nine episodes that led up to the finale. So I was all PLL’d out the whole day, so when the finale started, I was already emotional AF. I want to comment on my thoughts on some parts of the episode, so if you haven’t watched, come back and read after you have. (SPOILERS BELOW)

Kicking Off Summer Playlist

Hi Friends!2017-06-25 12.07.44 1

Music is something that has always been important to me. I use music for inspiration when I am writing, for a way to relax, to help get through long car rides, and to get me through the last mile when I work out. Summer officially started last week, and I realized that I have kind of created a playlist to kick of the Summer. I have listened to this playlist practically every day for the past week. It motivates me to get stuff done and relaxes me if need be. Check out these songs and let me know what you think! My favorite song is Bleachers, what is yours?

My Favorite Flower Shots

Hi Friends!

So I’ve been thinking about sharing my love for photography on this blog. Now I want to disclaim that I am in no way a professional photographer. I actually take most of my pictures on my phone. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to take my mother’s camera and take pictures and videos. There was something about capturing a moment that intrigued me. So with that in mind, here are some of my favorite flower pictures that I have taken over the past few weeks:

When I take pictures of flowers, I find myself attracted to bright colors and lots of green leaves around. My favorite picture is the yellow gazania flower in the bottom left. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’m in love with it. If you happen to like my pictures, I post often on my Instagram: annamaxwell018

Let me know what you think of my pictures, and feel free to share this post with your friends 🙂

Summer Bucket List

Hi Friends!

photo created by me

I decided to do this Summer Bucket List after realizing that I really need to change things by getting out and doing somethings before the Summer is over. Not everything on this list is going to be outdoors, but I have a lot of outdoor goals to do before the end of the Summer. I think this list my change over time, but my plan is to just have a basic list that can be added to. Hopefully, if all goes well, I will give a completion blog post at the end of Summer. Or you can follow me on my social media to see my progress. Continue reading

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi friends!3f

I know that every day we should celebrate how amazing our parents are. I know I do. Through the good times and the bad, I am so incredibly grateful for everything my parents have done for me over the years. Growing up we didn’t have that much money, but it was through the adventures and the little things that made our childhood. On this Father’s Day, I was able to buy my dad some of his favorite things. Which includes Butter Pecan Ice cream(his favorite), Bath and Body Works candles(we both love them a lot), some new cologne, and mixed nuts. While they may not be a big fancy TV’s or computers, the little things matter a lot in our family 🙂

My dad I have our differences at times, but I love him so freaking much! I know everyone will probably want to be spending time with their father’s today, I will leave you with some of my favorite pictures. I hope everyone has a great Father’s Day!

Taking A Page: I Have The Need For Change

Hi Friends!

2

Photo created by me

This is my 16th TAP of the year! I wrote this kind of quickly and it was a little jumbled when I went back to type it up for this blog. When you get in that funky mood of craving change, I guess your mind gets a little crazy too haha.

~~~~~

I feel like growing up I always loved the idea of some kind of change in my life. I got bored of things quickly and wanted to spice things up. As a somewhat adult, over the past few years, I realized I also have a fear of change. I had nightmares about people moving away, long-time friendships ending, and moving out of my house. How can someone like change but at the same time fear change? I have no idea.

Lately, my life has been pretty constant. I write a lot of the day(which I love doing, don’t get me wrong), watch some TV shows or a movie, and I work out. I like the working out part. I like the writing part in moderation. The TV and movies are not as necessary. But I want to change it up. I want to go out and do things. Maybe that can start with me just simply making plans to do things at the beginning of the week. Maybe not on a specific day, just like a to-do list of things I want to do during the week. It could give me a little inspiration to get up and get out of the house.

I need to figure out something, and FAST! I almost had a scary thought that was me actually missing school for five seconds. We can’t have that now, can we? Haha

Check Out: Last Minute Trips Ep. 4

Hi Friends!

For those of you who watch YouTube and haven’t checked out Waffsicle, you are missing out! Waffsicle is a company formed by Collin Duddy and Julien Solomita. Their main series on YouTube entitled Last Minute Trips, shows the two starting with throwing a dart on a map, and then their travel to that destination. The catch? They have to

In their fourth installment to the series, we see Collin and Julien get on a plane and fly off to Bayfield, Wisconsin. Well with a few stops on the way. I have watched Julien and his girlfriend Jenna for several years now, and I love their content on YouTube. When Collin and Julien started up Waffsicle and these Last Minute Trips I, of course, was excited and ready for them. I hope you all enjoy the episode, and more links to the social media for Collin and Julien are at the bottom of the post.

Tuesday Motivation: Hungover from Donuts?

Hi Friends!1.jpg

As everyone who has access to social media and all the national food something trends, you probably know that it was National Donut Day(NDD) on Friday(June 2nd). I have to say that with all these National food something days that happen, this is one that I was excited for. Like weeks in advance excited for it.

If you have followed me long enough on here or my social media, you know that I have a donut obsession. As of April, I think it was more of a maple donut obsession. But, I’m not opposed to eating all other donuts made on this Earth.

I ended up going to get a dozen donuts on NDD. No, I did not eat them all myself, but I did eat probably five or six of them… Anyway, the point of this post is after that extreme cheat day, I have been sluggish when it has come to eating healthy and working out over the weekend. Which is completely unacceptable because I had been doing super good with working out and eating healthy for almost the entire month of May. Essentially I see myself having a donut hangover that’s lasted for about three days. So I’m going to have to work extra hard this week to get back on track. More like four because I obviously didn’t get my shit together in order to write this post to be a Monday Motivation haha.

My goals for this week are:

  1. Walk three miles a day, NO EXCEPTIONS
  2. Plan my meals ahead of time to keep from excessive snacking
  3. Drink a lot of water every day (at least three 30 ounce cups)
  4. Get out and exercise outside

I’m planning on trying to listen to music this week as I work out. I find that when I watch TV shows it is easy to go at a slower pace in order to pay attention to them, but when I listen to music I can pick up the pace easier. I hope everyone has a happy Monday!
