Jennifer Blake: If we had coffee I'd tell you...

If we had coffee I'd tell you...

September 4, 2012

I am awful at sticking to a budget. Every month I sit down and try to create a budget for a month, the first time Aaron and I sat down (June) we actually stuck to our budget! The past few months have been pretty bad though, between buying stuff for the wedding and buying stuff for school, we have not stuck to any kind of budget. I am really hoping we can start budgeting again when the wedding is over.

I miss my friends from home. I love making new friends, but there is comfort in old friends. Growing up with people and finding your best friends who know you through and through is not as easy when you are 23. I miss lunch dates and long talks over coffee with my old friends.

I have been been putting a lot of pressure on myself lately. I am a perfectionist to the core, a complete type A. Sure this can be a good thing, but it also comes with a lot of pressure. I got my final back from a class I took this summer and I was really upset that I got a 92. How crazy is that? I should have been happy, but all I kept thinking was man I could have done better. I get a rush from getting A's and when I dont, I beat myself up  over it. I think I need to let go and relax a little bit. No one is perfect right?

... I would also tell you...

My eating habits have been sub-par these past few weeks. Sometimes it is easier to come home after a long day and eat a bowl of cereal or make a box of mac&cheese. I haven't really been in the cooking mood, but I am trying to snap myself out of it! I always feel better when I eat healthier.

I am addicted to pumpkin spice candles anything. As soon as September 1st hit, I trotted over to Target and bought two pumpkin candles! I have been burning them non-stop, they make me so happy. I also have been visiting Starbucks daily seeing if they have pumpkin spiced lattes yet, sadly they do not. There is just something so comforting about the smell and taste, I love it I love it I love it.

I would tell you that I wish I had more interaction with my blog readers. I want to know them, I love to write letters, I love to exchange emails, and their comments always brighten up my day!

What would to tell me over a nice hot cup of pumpkin spiced coffee? Please, share.
