//Truth. Our trees are starting to turn as seen above
//Truth. I've been bad at blogging around these parts…which just means I've been having too much fun.
//Truth. I despise shopping at Walmart. But it's cheap and close. Womp.
//Truth. I'm loving these free iPhone wallpapers!
//Truth. I have a hidden Pinterest board filled with baby stuff…I keep it hidden because I don't want someone suddenly thinking I'm pregnant.
//Truth. The beginning of October I'm getting my butt into gear and doing my first "challenge". It's the 21 day fix challenge by Beachbody. I can eat real food…SOLD
//Truth. I'm trying really hard not to decorate for Fall until October for the sheer fact that I'm sad to see Summer go. However, Fall decor and wardrobes are the best so I'm quickly failing.
//Truth. I'm really missing home, and I don't think we will be able to go home until after Christmas.

Crane Mountain


Last week my hiking adventures continued with a much more intense hike up Crane Mountain. Crane Mountain is another hike in the Adirondacks here in Upstate New York. After my last adventure with Buck Mountain, I went ahead and purchased a rocking new pair of hiking boots. I can't wait for the next hike with these gals to see the leaves turn.

Most amazing part of this hike? When we got to the summit we were literally amongst the clouds. Fog would roll in and wrap around us fast and freezing cold. At first we thought the fog was smoke by the way if moved in quickly, thankfully it wasn't!

Crane Mountain stats:
Elevation: 3254 ft
Ascent: 1154 ft
Distance: 2.7 miles (5.4 round trip) to summit including pond

Amazed by it all!

Yeah so I guess I miss the kid…and other things currently


writing/// happy birthday to one of my oldest friends…not oldest as in age, but longest. I understand you probably didn't need that explanation but I wouldn't want her feeling old. Alright and now I'm just obnoxious.
anticipating/// a trip to Mexico in t-minus 47 days. Joe and I will be celebrating our second year of marriage by relaxing on a beautiful Playa del Carmen beach. Swim up room included…Oh. My. Gursh.
missing/// my crazy brilliant scientist other half. He's been away in Indiana since last Sunday and I'll actually admit I miss him hogging 3/4 of our king sized bed. I am SO thankful to have April here while Joe is away, we have been able to catch up on long lost girl time. However, I still tend to get anxious while he is away. Even under all of his goofy charm, I feel safe when he's around.
wearing/// well I'm currently in my "jammies" but just returned from a trip to Target with a new fall dress which promises to be a wardrobe staple. I'm headed to an Oncology/Hematology conference next week in the City and this girl has little to no "professional clothing". Just more reasons I love wearing pajamas scrubs at work.
craving/// home. I've been missing home a lot lately. Plus I could definitely go for some Joe T Garcia's ASAP. I'm excited for the days we are closer than 1,700 miles from home.

I can't believe we are almost halfway through September. Make. It. Stop.
P.S. did you see how much fun I had with "The Blog Baton" yesterday?
