- To be honest, July was pretty boring for me! We moved at the end of June and most of July was spent settling into our new apartment and getting back into some semblance of a routine. We love our new place and it already feels like home!
- I got my braces off in July, which I was SO excited about! This was my second time around with braces and being an adult with braces was NOT fun. I was always self conscious about how I looked in them – if they were getting too discolored (because, let’s be real – no way I’m giving up my coffee!), or if I had food in my teeth… I’m so happy to be braces free now and I’m smiling all the time!
- My company had their annual company party in July! It’s always nice to have an excuse to dress up fancy for a night of fun with your coworkers outside of the office. I look forward to these parties every year because they are always a blast!
- If you can’t tell, I’m still in a bit of a blogging slump! I can’t believe it’s more than half way through August and I haven’t posted a single thing yet. Hopefully that changes in the next few weeks… I have full intentions of posting a bunch of book reviews over the next few weeks, but no promises! Blogging is a hobby for me, so I don’t force it when I’m not in the mood.
- Honestly, my latest obstacle has been a new obsession with Pokemon Go. The obsession is real guys – J and I are going out on Pokemon hunts for about two hours every night after work, which doesn’t leave me a lot of time to read, much less blog!
- I still had a pretty great reading month with completing 6 books! So have no fear, even if you aren’t hearing from me on the blog, I am still reading. 🙂
- I’m still around on Twitter, but you can also follow along with my reading updates on GoodReads and my Snapchat (@jadetink). I’ve fallen in love with Snapchat stories as a medium for sharing what I’m doing and reading in the moment! Now that Instagram has a story feature, I’m going to try to do updates on there as well.
