Wow – it’s already June? I say this every month but time is going by WAY too fast. It doesn’t help that I’ve been incredibly busy and have hardly had time to stop and relax and just have some Bex time.

Why you ask?

I’m finishing up my last class before summer (I’m currently working towards my Event Management Certificate online through Mount Royal University). I am definitely ready to be done with school for awhile. It’s taken up a big chunk of my time which is to be expected, but I haven’t had much of a social life while I’ve been home reading and doing assignments. I just have to hand in one more assignment, due this weekend and I’m FREE! Until fall, that is. Come September, I only have one more class and then my final project and I will have completed the course!

Of course there’s my usual working out and eating well. The eating well hasn’t been so great the past few weeks and I got pretty down on myself for not being anywhere near reaching my goal for Mexico. However, Mr. Fitness reminded me that I still have a few weeks time to get there, I’m not that far away. It will be tough given the fact that I’m jetting off to Ireland for a few days but I’m going to be as good as I can for the next 8 days until I leave, pack some workout gear, and do my best to make smart food choices while I’m gone. Once I’m home I’m doing a mild nutrient, fiber-rich cleanse. This is going to be tough for me I’m sure, going from eating 6-7 small meals a day, to going on holidays, to this. I know I won’t be able to workout as much as I do regularly but I’m hoping to get in some light cardio and perhaps do some sauna-ing. That will leave me with a week and a half of good eats and workouts before I’m off to Mexico to be in my best friend’s wedding!

The wedding has been keeping me busy with the shopping for dresses and shoes, and fittings, the bridal shower, the stagette and all the other stuff that comes with being the maid of honor. It’s been fun and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. I’m so excited to be a part of this and I can’t wait to witness two great people get married. It’s going to be an amazing time!

As if that all wasn’t enough I’m still hanging out with my little friends at the SPCA. Sherona was on a pre-adoption hold for awhile. I was sad that I wouldn’t get to snuggle her anymore, but happy she would be going to a new home. I’m not sure what happened but she’s no longer on hold and I still get my weekly snuggle with the little hairy beast. The Mullet Bunny and his friend Jackie are still kicking too. I would have thought with how adorable The Mullet Bunny is, he would have found a home so fast. Each week I’m more and more tempted to adopt him, but I know it’s not a good time right now. Maybe when I’m back from Mexico?? Hehe.

I’ve only completed two out of my five things to do for spring and unfortunately I think the rest of those things will have to go on a to-do list for summer. Luckily one of the things was creating this site, which I wasn’t expecting to get so quickly and I’m very thankful for (thanks Mom for helping me!) There’s still a few minor changes that might occur, but you probably won’t notice much.  I’m hoping to blog every other day now, but you’ve all just read that I’m a pretty busy cat these days, so I make no promises. I will try though!

So there you have it folks, a little update to kick off the month. What have you been up to? Did you achieve your goals for May? Do you have anything you want to accomplish in June?

I will now leave you with the new song from my good friends City and Colour, who’s new album is out on Tuesday! I encourage you all to pick it up. I’ve been previewing it on MTV’s The Leak and am really excited to give it a good listen.

    Oooh! Your birthday is soon! That’s so exciting! I love birthdays! 😀

    Slow is ok, just stay focused and you will get there. I will be here to cheer you on along the way. We can struggle and be slow together, haha.

    I know, I’m going to miss the blogger community while I’m gone, but I’m going to try and schedule some blogs while I’m gone so you won’t miss me too much. We’ll see how my next week goes. :-/
