May Rewind(2019)


Last month I brought back monthly rewinds and I kind of liked it and decided to keep it around for now! I do have a new segment that I’m including though lower in the post.

Life updates

  • I went on vacation to Memphis for a long weekend! It was my first real vacation. I have a blog post in progress that should be up this month.
  • We hired a new person at work who has pharmacy experience and it’s going really well.
  • The bathrooms and breakroom are fixed!!! Praise the lord! I couldn’t be happier to be out of construction mode it was such a hot mess!
  • My sister Khloe officially graduated Kindergarten! They grow up so fast!
  • I also decided to join in the 101 in 1001 days challenge and I am pumped.

101 Things in 1001 Days

The Weekly Rewind: May 26th

This month was such a better blogging month for me. I was so proud of myself for blogging as much as I  did and I’m excited to keep it going in June!

101 in 1001 days

Welcome to the new section of my monthly rewind! With my new challenge launching this month I wanted to have a little space where I could talk about the progress I am making with my challenge. May was a solid start for me and I managed to complete 4/101 challenges.

  1. Dye my Hair!- I was really nervous to do this but I used a box dye on my hair at the beginning of the month and my hair is now a dark red! I really love it and I’m glad I finally did something that intimidated me!
  2. Visit a new state-  I actually have visited 3 new states in May. Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee! 
  3. Get a new vehicle- I wasn’t expecting to purchase a new vehicle so soon but it was time to trade in my Traverse for a new vehicle. The peace of mind was worth the car payments I can tell you that for sure.
  4. Visit Graceland- This was the highlight of my trip for sure! I had so much fun and I’m so glad I got to go!

In Progress…

  • Update my progress for this challenge in my month wrapup posts
  • Take a photo to commemorate the completion of each of these goals
  • Read a book for every letter of the Alphabet
  • Create an editorial schedule for my blog

These ones are more long term so I won’t be sharing them every update but I wanted to share that I was at least working on them!

Next Up

  • Write a letter to myself to be opened when the 1001 days are over
  • Answer the “50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind”
  • Make a list of 50 places I would like to visit in my lifetime

Each month I want to make a goal of picking from my list of some challenges I would like to focus on for the month! I’m taking it easy by only picking 3 but I’m pretty excited to do them all!


Vicky shared how she makes her amazing horizontal banners

Adele announced her new Japanese Book Club 

Dani shared some awesome Bookstagram advice

Rain shared her Edelweiss Tips and Tricks

Carrie shared a really great list of Instagram hashtags 

That’s all for me this month! How was your month? Favorite book of the month? Any amazing posts I missed? Feel free to share!
