July Link Up

Friday, July 5, 2013

I love doing these link ups from All Y'all Need! I feel like I just did the June one! Where is my summer going?

Just walking: In the last year and a half or so I been a more active human-being! I ran my first 5k last April and then ran another one last June. In the process I found out I have pretty bad exercise asthma, due to terrible allergies! Now, I don't run as much (bought an elliptical for cardio), but I walk and walk and walk everywhere! A friend of mine got me hooked on a FitBit It's worth the money, I am completely addicted. It tracks, calories, steps, elevation, and even your sleep! You can also see your friends' progress and it makes it competitive! At work I average about 7,000 steps, so I have to walk extra in the summer!  I am only about 10lbs away from my goal weight. WOo hoo!

Using glitter, glue and paint: some of you may or may not know that I used to have a craft blog! I don't do it anymore, because I usually ended up posting my crafts on Facebook! I needed a blog that would marry crafts and SLP, thus Queen's Speech was born! Anyways "bride brain" has me frazzled, back on topic.... I have been using glitter, glue and paint on all kinds of wedding crafts, like making my own wedding favors. I will post pictures after the wedding, promise.  It's kind of nice to be taking a little break from things Speech-Language.

Loving my fiancé: Why? Well for one, I am marrying the guy, and I can only call him that for a few more weeks! After 10 years of calling him my boyfriend, transitioning to calling him my fiancé was weird! 3 weeks from now he will be my HUSBAND! It's all so exciting!

Yummy carne asada: Yesterday was the 4th of July, and here in Southern California we celebrate the "American" way with TACOS! Yep, yummy yummy carne asada, guacamole, and salsa! Nothing better in the world, especially when you have a cold drink in hand and the warm sunshine of the beach!

How are you enjoying your summer? Doing anything fun?

  1. Thanks for linking up, especially with a wedding so close! That was fun to read!

    Good for you and fitness. I have a bit more to go than 10 pounds.

    We also celebrate holidays with Tex Mex food here in Texas. Tamales on Christmas Eve are a big hit.

    1. I love doing the Link-ups I think it allows for a bit of my personality to show through all the usually serious SLP stuff we yammer on about! :) YES for Tex Mex food! I work in a heavily populated hispanic area and have the pleasure of eating tamales once in a while. No wonder I've gained weight, I can't say no when rice and beans are involved!

  2. Yay for almost being married! I can relate - my hubby and I dated 9 years before saying "I do". It's definitely more fun calling him 'husband'. Have a beautiful wedding! Can't wait to see some pictures.

    Schoolhouse Talk!

  3. Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! I love Mexican food and tacos-my FAV!

Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: emutemple@gmail.com or you can contact him through his website https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ fb page Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341 and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
