Bringing Me Joy · Vol. 7

Well, it's been a long time since I shared one of these posts (errr, or any post that is).

Celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary.
Since we're adamant about saving money right now, we kept it really simple this year ― we opted out of gift-giving, chose to have dinner at our favorite little pizza joint (Cristino's), and went to see a movie. I love that we can have fun together no matter what we're doing. Always enjoy spending quality time with my boo!

The Brain Food playlist on Spotify.
So many great songs on this one. Really can't recommend this playlist enough. I find myself listening to it when I'm studying, working out at the gym or even driving in the car. It's the perfect music to veg out to.

Attending my church's Daughters of the King brunch.
Last Saturday, I went to a brunch hosted by my church with my sis-in-law, niece + a couple of my friends. This was the first event I had been to since I started going to this church. It was very nice (especially the message that was shared by Pastor Kaci) and I'm looking forward to attending next year as well. 

Anne with an 'E' on Netflix.
So, I'll admit, I've never seen the original (1985) version of Anne of Green Gables, but I really like the new Netflix original series that they've made. I've been watching it with my mama. 

Kashi's chewy coconut cashew macaroon bars.
I'm a sucker for all things coconut. I love that these aren't overly sweet. They're perfect for on-the-go snacking.

Seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Guys! Baby Groot is so freakin' cute. The first movie was okay, but the second was much better.

Grilling season.
Finally set up our grill after almost 2 years of having it (oops). Just give me all the grilled meat + veggies!

Registering for my fall classes.
I'm taking two classes to start with, but I really couldn't be happier with my little fall schedule. I'll only be going to school twice a week for 2.75 hours each day (that's including the 15 minutes between the two classes). I can't complain. I thought I'd have an hour or two between each class and I was kinda dreading that.

Flexible dieting #iifym.
G and I started counting macros about a month ago. I doubt that I'll ever go back to any other 'diet' again. I love how adjustable this eating approach is. I never feel deprived. Heck, most days I struggle to eat enough calories. I'm losing a pound a week, which is good with me! Slow and steady is the key to keeping it off.

Today's rainy weather.
The sunshine state has been a little too sunny lately. We've been battling massive wildfires throughout the entire state because of how dry it's been. I'm thankful for the rain (plus it always puts me in a blogging mood).

What are some things that are bringing you joy lately?
