Feeling... better. I definitely got sick like I predicted last week. I had the worst case of laryngitis I've ever had and felt awful. I still have a pretty bad cough but only at night...so I guess that's good?

Reading... "The Underground Girls of Kabul" by Jenny Nordberg. Carolann sent this to me a few months ago and I'm just now getting around to reading it. Less than 50 pages in and I'm hooked. This is one of the best books on Afghanistan I've read and, having written part of my grad thesis on Afghanistan, that's saying a lot.

Watching... "The Astronaut Wives Club." I loved the first episode. It was great. The Pilot and I are also slowly watching "Orange is the New Black." We're only 3 or 4 episodes in but I really like this season so far. They brought a lot of the characters I like back as regulars which is great.

Listening to... Bette Midler on repeat. One of my mom's ultimate bucket list things has always been to see Bette Midler, so for her birthday this past year, I bought her tickets to see her in DC. The show was Monday and it was incredible. My mama was so happy which made me equally happy. The best part? Her donning her Winifred wig and singing "I Put a Spell on You."

Thinking about... South Carolina. It's so devastating and once again, it's sparking a lot of debate in the US. Yes, mental health is an issue in this country but let's not pretend that someone who taken pictures of himself burning the American flag and posing with the Confederate flag is anything but a racist who committed this heinous act because of hatred.

Working on... planning out my summer. All of a sudden, I went from not having a busy summer to a very busy summer. I don't hate it.

Loving... the wedding we went to this weekend. It was a blast. We had such a ridiculously fun time and it was our first time seeing that whole group of friends since our wedding, which was awesome. We heard some crazy stories about what went on after we left our wedding!

I just love getting dressed up for weddings!
Grateful for... The Pilot flying again. He's out of training and still on reserve which I'm hoping won't be for much longer. His reserve schedule is...erratic and I hardly ever know when he's going to be home.

Excited about... marathon training! This is it! Week 1! I have some catching up to do since I was sick for the early part of the week, but I'm excited to kick it into gear and see where this cycle takes me!

That's all I've got. Sorry for the absence but with being out of town, my mom coming down and getting sick, blogging has been at the back of my mind! I feel like all of June has been like that though...I'll be back to my regular posting schedule soon though!

Happy Thursday!
