Radiating Sunshine: Summa Summa

Summa Summa

Hello... I wish I could say I regret not writing in my little corner of the internet lately (30 days to be exact), but I really don't! Life has been so busy and wonderful that sometimes it is okay to unplug and just live it up. I promise I have a lot of posts drafted that will update you all on the Miss behind Radiating Sunshine. 

But, if my posts are sporadic, you can always find me on insta (alexmhons)! I usually put up pics on there fairly frequently (its way easier than pulling out my computer, uploading pics, and writing up a post). However, here are some excuses for my absence!

summer... the Summer months are critical. From May--mid-August there aren't many students on campus and at work we have countless training sessions, prep work for the RAs to return, and building preparation. My summer has been spent finish my Practicum (New Student Orientation) and getting ready for my wonderful staff of RAs and DAs to return! Oh I also can't forget summer classes (Prac and Group Counseling) I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get another pretty pair of As to add to my grad school collection. 

josh... crazy how much time boyfriends take up, but I wouldn't trade a single minute for the world! Josh and I have gotten to spend a lot of time together! We have gone out on dinner dates, went shopping for professional clothes, watched movies, went on walks, had church dates, etc! Josh has been really busy working on his Summer baseball league too. 
books... check yes to reading for fun! I have read two books this summer (The Husband's Secret and Sharp Objects). I'm almost done Sharp Objects, so don't ruin it for me O.o I don't get a lot of time to read (usually between 10:30PM-11:30PM every night, but when I do its glorious! I also thoroughly enjoy a good book and some sun rays!

friends... Over the past month I have gotten to see so many friends! I hosted the annual 4th of July Party (on the 15th of July, but who cares) with all of my college friends. I went to a mini High School reunion (its hard to believe I graduated HS 5 years ago). I also celebrated a lifelong friend, Amanda at her bachelorette weekend! I visited my closest Res. Life friend at her new university. And I am just so overwhelmed and blessed by all of the good people in my life!
hershey park... I've also been to Hershey Park, in Hershey PA twice this summer! This is definitely record breaking. I went once with my co-workers and once with Josh! Both times were so much fun and I seriously wish I had season passes so I could go every weekend. The walking alone would do wonders for my body (which will be going on a serious diet at the end of RA Training).
delicious food... and speaking of diets, I have probably been the furthest from one. I don't know why but the Summer months are always so difficult! Probably because I'm constantly going to pool parties with yummy cookout food! My favorite meal this summer has definitely been shrimp salad (not pictured here). I usually go through phases of food that I'm obsessed with and shrimp salad during this hot summer is not a bad one!
Anyways, this weekend my RAs return and life will continue to be busy! Just a warning that this little blog might not make it throughout the semester, but I'm going to give it a try. Grad School + Work + Fields + Personal Life = one exhausted Alex!

Goodnight lovelies :)
