June 2018 Recap - What's New With You Link Up

Hello all, time for another what's new with you link up! Thanks again if you join me, I always appreciate it. Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July - we did not celebrate at all, normally we go out of town but with it falling on a Wednesday it didn't make sense, plus we normally go to see KC's family and we just saw them like 2 weeks ago, so we were both okay just staying in town and enjoying having the day off.

In June:

My girlfriends and I went on a little road trip to Cincinnati and Ikea. It was a ton of fun and I didn't buy every single thing in the store, so I consider it a success.

We went to Mellow Mushroom after Ikea, and I got the exact same thing I always get - I mean, my friends and I shared it, I didn't eat the whole thing. But I never deviate. Does anyone else do that? Not just at Mellow Mushroom, but anywhere? Once I find something I love at a restaurant, whether its a pizza place, McDonalds, jimmy johns - I rarely change my order, whether I've been twice or two hundred times. I really like my comfort zone.

We went to a local German sausage fest - no photos of the food but the beer was good. Then we went and got popsicles from Steel City Pops. Dangerous that they are right around the corner from our house.

Like I mentioned above, we went out of town to see KC's family to attend a wedding. The ceremony was outside. At 2pm. With no shade. I love the heat but even I was like.. okay, glad I did my hair and makeup for this! Lucky there was a 4 hour gap in between the ceremony and reception, we were able to go back to the hotel and freshen up/get completely changed and start all over again.

I worked out as much as I could the first couple of weeks, knowing I wouldn't be jumping straight back in after my oral surgery. I took lots of photos of my cats, as usual.

I threw in a dog for fun. He's the sweetest dachshund I've ever met. Also there's a duplicate workout selfie but I just can't care enough to re-do the collage, so whatever.

And of course - I read. Then read some more. Also, I read a book or two. Clearly I'm doing so well at that whole stop using reading as a crutch thing. Oh well, whatever.

As for my oral surgery - I got my wisdom teeth removed and also these other things, like, installed in my gums. And that basically knocked me out for the remainder of June. My whole face blew up like a puffer fish, I was covered in bruises and I had 2 black eyes. Fun. It was actually kind of terrifying as I've never been put under - except for when I was 6 weeks old and obviously I have no memory of that. Logically I knew I'd be fine, I wasn't worried about the actual surgery but the vulnerability of laying there while they put me to sleep was so terrifying. I am not kidding when I say I completely lost it, crying so hard I couldn't breathe properly. The gas calmed me down and next thing you know, I woke up, so no harm no foul, but gah. I hated it. Thankfully they allowed me to hold paper towels in my hands because remember, I'm addicted to them. It was hilarious because the guy was like 'like a blankie?' and I was like hell yes, and if you try and take it away I will scream like a toddler as well. It was all very grown up. But not kidding, the pain meds I was on made me so drowsy I slept seriously 80% of the time. When I was awake, I was dizzy and felt sick. When I went back to work - two days later - I had to go home early because I was just not functioning well at all. Thank goodness KC is off for the summer and acted as my chauffeur and slave/nurse. I took tons of photos of my fat bruised face but obviously not putting them on the internet. I'd say I'm 85% recovered now. My face is almost completely back to normal.

Anyway, that's why I basically fell off the face of the planet for the last couple of weeks, not apologising, just stating. Plus there is also the fact that I'm feeling kind of apathetic about life right now, I go up and down and right now I'm down. Not trying to be a debbie downer, again, just stating. It is what it is and we've got Vegas next week so that should pull me out of my stupor.

June felt equal parts crazy busy and empty. I like a good mix of the two.

If you'd like to link up, please do so below.

So that's what I got up into June. What's new with you? Do you get the same thing when you go to restaurants often? Or do you try new things? I'm honestly curious.
