    Catching My Eye | 2.15.19

    Happy Friday! This week simultaneously felt like the longest and shortest week of my life. Last weekend was such a blast! I celebrated my brother’s birthday with him and a bunch of friends before he jetted home for the weekend, and I attended a gala-type event for an organization I’m a part of in Nashville. It was carnival themed, and I truly had a blast dancing the night away with friends. Despite the fun-filled weekend, I was feeling really anxious earlier in the week, so it felt like the days were dragging. I tried to brush aside my feelings with wine nights and tacos, but I think I’m just going…

    And just like that, another week has flown by. On Monday, it always seems like the week will take forever and then it’s over in the blink of an eye! I had a bit of an off week since I didn’t meal prep on Sunday, so I ate out a lot, which I don’t love to do but it is what it is. This week was packed with The Bachelor, networking events, and happy hours, and this weekend is even more fun-filled! I’m attending an event I helped plan that should be lots of fun, and I’m celebrating my brother’s birthday. What are all of you up to? I’ve been reading a…

    Catching My Eye | 2.1.19

    Cheers! It’s the weekend once again, and boy do I need it. I had this wonderful realization this week that this time last year I would do two things — I would go to work, and I would come home. And now? I can be busy every single day of the week if I so choose, which is insane. In just one year, my life has completely changed. I’m in love with this magical city, I’m involved in a variety of organizations, and I am so proud of myself for how far I have come. I hope that’s not taboo to say, but sometimes I think we focus too much on what…

    Catching My Eye | 1.25.18

    I’m sitting in the airport as I write this update headed to DC for the weekend! I’m mostly excited to see my friend’s cat, but I also can’t wait for amazing food and spending some much needed quality time with a dear friend. I wish I could say I’m excited to spend hours in museums, but all the Smithsonian’s are closed due to this historically long government shut down. If you can, please offer to help out any affected government workers in your community that may be experiencing hardships due to the shutdown. I found this Refinery29 article about donating to furloughed government employees especially helpful. This week was a…

    The new year glow has already started to fade on 2019, but there’s still 11 months to fulfill those New Year’s Resolutions — and yes, I do mean Resolutions with a capital “R.” I may be wrong, but I feel like this is around the time of month that people start giving up on their resolutions, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to be that person this year. Stick to your resolutions all the way through 2019 with these five tips. Let’s get started!

    Catching My Eye | 1.18.19

    And just like that, another week has come and gone. This week was a busy one for me, and it was fully self-imposed. I was feeling really down earlier in the week, and all I wanted to do on Monday night was go home after work, curl up on my couch, and watch The Bachelor by myself. But, instead of shrinking into myself and sitting in my sadness, I decided to go to a friends house to watch the show with a group. I instantly felt better after spending a few hours with friends, and it reminded me that I need to do that more often — surround myself with…

    Catching My Eye | 1.11.19

    Anyone else feel like this week flew by? I thought it would be a rough one since last week was so short with New Year’s Day, but it truly went by in the blink of an eye. I got a ton of “deep work” done at my day job that I’m really happy about, and I’ve been consistent with blogging and posting on social media for A Spoonful of Honi (follow me on Instagram for daily highlights), so I’m feeling like I had a mega productive week, and there’s nothing better than that. I’ve also had such a good time this week with friends. Last Friday, I had some friends…

    2019 Goals

    Wow, finally, a 2019 post! I know you’ve probably been waiting for this one for a while (and by “a while,” I mean a week and a half). A lot of crazy, personal stuff happened at the end of 2018, and because of that, I’m truly trying to focus on being my best self in 2019. Doing things because I want to do them, whether that means I do it alone or with a friend. Doing things that better me as a person. Doing things that help me get to where I want to be professionally and personally. I am so excited for this year, and I am ready to…

    18 Things I Loved in 2018

    We are seven days into the new year, but I’m still not over 2018. I feel like I still have so much to say about those 365 days. This is (probably) my last post about 2018, and moving forward I am all about 2019, the new year, new goals, and everything in between. Check back on Wednesday for a look into my goals for the next 12 months. Before officially moving on, I wanted to do a little wrap up of all the products, habits, books, and random things I was loving in 2018, so let’s get started!

    Catching My Eye | 1.4.19

    New year, new blog series! I’m excited to announce that one of my goals of 2019 is to post three days a week! THREE! My new posting schedule is going to be Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 8 a.m. central time with every Friday post being a weekly wrap up with updates on my life as well as things that have caught my eye on the internet (or in life) during the last five days. Obviously, this week has been a weird one with the new year falling on a Tuesday, but I’ve already enjoyed 2019 more than anything. I rang in the new year with close friends and family at…
