Let’s Have A Catch Up!

Let’s Have A Catch Up!

5760351122360447746-account_id=5

Oh Aye up! How are we all? Thought it’s about time we had a catch up don’t you?

My saturday consisted of eating this gigantic whopper of a burger! I mean I did try to finish it but have you seen the size of that thing? err can we also talk about how appealing it looks thou! who wants a bit?

So where do we even begin? I think the last time we had a good natter was.. I’m actually not sure it was such a while back! wow how time flies ay. If you didn’t know already then how do you not already know?! we are engaged! you can check out that blog right here https://trevnjess.com/2017/04/18/something-happened-on-our-hike/ 

So (moi) Jess was only allowed to visit the USA for 3 months which was (Jan – April) this year and during that time we got engaged where after we filed a petition so that we could then start the k-1 visa. 

At the moment it’s a long waiting game to get an approval of the petition which can take anything from 3-5 months, once it get’s approved medical examinations and embassy meetings begin. 

I’m not gonna lie.. it’s tough being away from each other, not being able to see each other every day is heartbreaking. Seeing others move on to get their own houses and start a proper little family etc when we have to wait for an approval is so tough.. But saying that we are being the strongest we can be right now.. that’s all we can do right? getting upset will not speed the process up any quicker and there is nothing we can do, so we just have to be positive and keep being strong. Obviously we get the down days where we need one another, just a comfort to make you feel good again.. but we know that every day is a day closer. I actually have this calendar where I cross of the date at the end of every day haha.

So since being back in the UK (moi) Jess has gone back to work for a short time and Trevor stayed in Michigan and has just recently started his new job (Better hours.. better sleep) yes, no more dreaded night shift, I think he’s definitely appreciating the new sleep routine! And of course as well as this Trevor is working on his online graphic clothing business which if you haven’t already checked out them funny “donut even try!” hoodies.. then you should probably check them out now.. https://frithapparel.com/ I honestly get the urge to eat the donut of the hoodie.. Let me know if you got that urge to? I May just have to persuade him to get me either the “Hug dealer” or “I’d like you if you were pizza” hoodie.. maybe both? haha we’ll see. 

So as you can tell.. everything has been a little bit busy at the moment moving back home and settling back in, it’s not been easy for both of us.. still isn’t now but we gotta do what we gotta do for now, only way is up my friends! we are both so excited for the future! In fact something positive recently has been talking about the wedding and planning that a little bit more!.. sorry, no revealing any secrets yet guys hehe.. you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. 

We would love to know how all of our readers are, anyone going through the same sort of adventure right now? Let us know in the comments below! 🙂 

Loved having this little catch up.. there is something about writing things down on the computer or notebook that suddenly makes everything look a lot more sense in your head, is that just me? haha.

What Did I Get For Christmas?

What Did I Get For Christmas?

What did you all get for christmas? (Let me know in the comments below!)

My Christmas was lovely, I spent it with my parents and big brother, was a little down that me and Trevor couldn’t be together for our first christmas but there are lots of exciting things ahead for us both in which we can spend some time together and many Christmases to come for the future so that’s very exciting.

Without further ado! I’d like to show you all what I got for christmas, find below some pictures and find out also where these presents were brought from.

New Years Resolutions – What’s yours?

New Years Resolutions – What’s yours?

img_6253

Hello Everyone!

I hope all of our readers had a great christmas! and was spent with your loved ones cozied up by the christmas tree and eating that huge christmas dinner! mmm yummy. 🙂

I’m off to America to see Trevor in January! So prepare yourselves for blogs/pictures of the chilly yet pretty state – Michigan! 

So let’s talk Resolutions! Do you do it? Do you believe in a new year new start? New resolutions? same resolutions?

I know a lot of people who do it, you get the obvious and most popular which always seems to be number 1 – Lose weight. Which is true, that is my priority number 1 for 2017, but I do have some others, I know some people who believe in just following one resolution for the whole year so you get better focus at achieving it. I want to know if you guys get involved with resolutions, let me know what your’s are before 2017 and maybe we can all chip in to give each other some tips or whatever it may be to help us get on our way.

Below I’m going to list some of my resolutions for 2017, I’m sure I’ll be adding more to my notebook in the lead up to new year, perhaps little ones rather than a lot of big ones as I think it’s always best to focus on a few throughout the year as too many could get rather confusing and sometimes.. not so fun.

2017

So let’s get started!

1. Lose weight – I do eat quite healthy already, but like most of us I do enjoy a tasty treat one too often, we just had Christmas right? I want to start exercising/working out more and exploring the different things my body can do and putting myself to the test. I’m not quite set on a goal weight just yet, but I think I’ll see where I get too. It’s about pushing myself further, sometimes if I get out of breathe I’ll stop, so I want to push myself further but also remembering to have fun with it all too. 🙂

2. I find myself saying no a lot – When I think about certain things I’ll be well up for it! But when it comes to it sometimes I can say no or during something I’ll say no. I want to push myself further, remembering things are okay to be scared off or nervous about but at the same time it’s good to push past your fears and give it a go and if you really don’t like it then you never have to do it again.

3. Drink more water – I’ll admit, I detest water, something about it and I’ve never been too sure. I think it’s because it’s too plain. I work a lot too and I’m always on the go, so finding the time to stop and drink can be a little tricky, but it is something I’ve managed to put into place at work over the past few months. I’ve tried everything from adding squash to sometimes only drinking tea because that’s the only way I’ll drink it. I will admit however I am getting better at drinking water, but I do need to sustain this.

I think those are the main Top 3 for now.. However I do have a few little things lined up if I have time I’d like to focus on.

  • Photography – Recently taken to taking pictures for my blogs, really is fun, so I’d like to take some more time taking pictures of things I haven’t been able to capture yet. (I am off to America to see Trevor, so I would love to take some pictures of his beautiful town/state).
  • Outdoor/Winter activities – In England we hardly get snow and if we ever do, pretty much everything and everyone shuts down and I’ve never had a chance to experience colder weather and get involved in something different as winter sports so as I’m off to Michigan in January, I’ll be there for the Winter season, so this will give me a great opportunity to experience there snowmobiling, ice skating, skiing, hunting etc. I’m very excited.
  • Blogging – I’ve got this now haha. 2016 I started blogging as a little something to do when I have extra time between work and I really enjoy it! I can’t wait to continue! I have many blog ideas lined up and how to work on bettering the blog site itself. Very exciting.

So there you have it! My 2017 Resolutions. 🙂

I can’t wait to give each one my best shot.

Let me know in the comments below your Top 3 resolutions for 2017.
