It has been one hot summer so far. The pools are already 95 degrees, golfing sounds miserable, and three minutes in the sun fries you like an egg! I’m ready for fall already. Anyone with me?
A couple of my friends and I had a girl’s night planned on Tuesday. Our original plan was to go for a long walk outside and then have some wine on the porch, but it was scorching out! We traded those plans for sushi at Yama and Jurassic park!
We all got salads and split a sushi tray.
*Spicy Tuna Rolls, *California Crab Rolls, *Crab Sashimi!
Jurassic park was so good! Although, I cried a couple of times because I hate when animals die, even if it is computer animated.
Yesterday morning, I had my second chiropractor appointment and another doctors appointment, which I’ll be posting about soon. Getting answers is always relieving. I’ve been working this year on rebuilding my body and health to full potential. Recovering from an E.D takes years and your body really will fight you. It’s tough, but I’m willing to put everything into regaining full health.
After my morning appointments, I took Grumples to his! He has the best groomer! I went months and months without getting grumples groomed, sometimes tried to do it myself because I was so afraid of groomers. He always got anxiety, hated me for days after being groomed and sometimes would get cuts on his skin. He can’t do crates and spending over 7 hours at a groomers seems like torture.
I finally found a groomer that completes him in two hours, he looks amazing, they don’t crate him, they dry him with an actual doggy blow dryer instead of throwing him in a dry crate, which are extremely dangerous. He actually loves going to her. If you are in the charlotte area looking for a good groomer, email me!
While Grumples was getting groomed, I decided to get my monthly hair cut.
I had seven inches cut off my hair in January after going almost a year and a half without getting one trim. I told myself I’d never let my hair get so unhealthy again. I have gone 5 months without using any hot iron or blow dryer on my hair. There are so many different ways to style or curl your hair without heat. It’s also been a year and a half since dying my hair. I’ve been getting an inch off ever 4-5 weeks and contenting to condition it with my homemade remedy.
I spend a lot of time in the sun so my hair turns very light at the bottom. I’m trying very hard to get my hair in the best shape ever. Even if it means letting it dry and wearing it wavy! I used to look at my hair and count the split ends on ONE strand. Now, I have a hard time finding one split it. My only issue would be wearing hair ties. I need to find ones that don’t break the ends.
While Grumps finished up, I stopped and got some refreshing drinks and then went for a walk in the heat. I love walking in the south because the homes are beautiful 🙂
Later in the day, I headed uptown to Nick’s for the Knights baseball game. I hadn’t eaten lunch yet and was in a hurry to get there, so I grabbed a banana, almonds, and yogurt to have on the way. I knew I was going to get stuck in rush hour. I was right, it took me about an hour and a half to drive 15 miles.

We got to the game around seven! It was hot hot hot hot! If you haven’t gone to a Charlotte Knights game yet, you really should! (if you live in the charlotte area) The stadium is right uptown and the view is gorgeous. They actually have a game tonight with fireworks!
I love that stadiums are starting to offer healthy options. If you shuffle through the pizza booths, burgers, and popcorn, you’ll usually find something healthy.
We stopped at the Just Fresh booth.
We had such a fun night! (sorry for the no make-up scary face) but there was no point in wearing make up that would melt off in 104 degree weather.
What is your favorite thing about summer?
