Welcome to the June Tea Party! Like last month I’ll be chit-chatting about what’s been up in my little corner of the world, and what you can expect coming soon! Feel free to chit-chat back in the comments!

What Tea I’m Drinking
I’m drinking Matcha Maker from Good Earth. I don’t like green tea, and I definitely don’t like matcha. But this is so delicious! It’s been mid to upper 90s here, but the last couple of days have been so nice and today it’s actually a little chilly.
Where I’m Drinking It
At home again this month. Ryan finally found a summer job and we’ve been extremely busy. So spending a Sunday afternoon at home is lovely. I received this mug as a bridal shower gift, isn’t it adorable!?
As I mentioned, Ryan found a summer job. We’ve both been working as much as possible to save some money. With Independence Day coming up I’ll be working quite a bit at various events.
I actually went to a real tea party with the ladies from my church on Saturday. The outfit below is the outfit I wore!
We’re also in the midst of planning our first family summer vacation. We’re heading to Chicago in August to celebrate my 23rd birthday. I’m certain I will have at least a week’s worth of posts relating to our trip so I won’t share too many details now. Chicago is my favorite city, I’m already counting down the days! I really wish we had more than 3 days for our vacation.
Updates on Goals and Plans from Last Month
Last month I said I wanted to work harder on my fitness goals. So far I’ve lost almost a quarter of the weight I’m hoping to! I’ve readjusted my eating habits and I’m working out in ways I actually enjoy on a regular basis.
Another goal I mentioned was that I wanted to start eating at home more. We’ve been doing really well! Over the last 3 weeks we’ve only eaten out about three times! We’ve tried some delicious new recipes as well as resurrecting our favorites.
I still haven’t figured out something to sell on my blog.
Goals and Plans for Next Month
I want to keep working on my health and fitness goals! At this rate I should be halfway there by the next tea party.
I have some fun things I want to do on the blog next month. I want July to be the “month of challenges”. The goal is to choose challenges that will help me to focus on enjoying life and the things I have.
Here are the challenges:
Wear a different pair of shoes every day for 3 weeks (I only have 20 pairs of shoes… I need one more)
A 30 day instagram challenge: you can follow me here
The Love Dare this is a relationship challenge based in Biblical principals, but I think it has great implications for non-christians too.
