resolutions roundup: June

Well... June was certainly a whirlwind!
Already time for an outfit roundup and resolutions report (to see how my resolutions have been kept, check out the reports for JanuaryFebruary, April & May... totally not sure where March snuck off to!)

June outfits welcomed a return of classic closet staples, were full of bright and airy neutrals (here, here, here, here, & here), a favorite maxi skirt became a repeat offender (here & here), and hot pink totally had a moment (here & here)

2012 is officially half way over... (what!) and I am really happy that I have my resolutions to keep me motivated and accountable 

- We all know how much I dislike working out, but I have a whole new respect for my body now that I count on it to get me around town on my bicycle... everyday the trip from home to work (up and down hills mind you!) is getting easier! 
- And needless to say, after working my tush off on the bike... drinking water is all I want to do (easiest resolution ever!)

- I am finally back in the swing of things (after moving, and splurging on some new Spring/Summer clothes) and am putting away money for retirement & savings (pretty boring, but it has to be done)

- The start of summer and my new living conditions resulted in a spike in my cultivation of relationships. Between bunco nights and waterfall hikes, my girlfriends and I had a ton of fun this month... and are looking to continue our fun filled summer over the next couple of months (Bunco is at my house next month! yay!)
- I recently made some new stationary with my Etchpop, and have been sending letters to old friends... I love a good piece of mail, and am hoping to continue this even more into July by sending out friendship bracelets to my friends far and wide
- Tyler and I enjoyed a great month together as well. We have been playing kickball with a co-ed team every Thursday, and also enjoyed some one-on-one competition in Checkers and Settlers of Catan

- Still no home church, but we are hot on some leads... again with the not being a morning person thing... need to work on that!
- But my devotional time is still rocking, and I am enjoying more moment of quite meditation (has a serious experience of wonderment in my Creators playground at the waterfalls last weekend)

- No sewing yet... but I did clear off a spot for my machine in my new place... baby steps!
- I finally got down to business learning more about my camera, and took a hands on photography class. Still learning more and more each day. And also researching which lens to get next (open to suggestions!)
- Since going gluten-free, I have had so much fun cooking up new recipes in the kitchen!
Two of my most successful gluten-free recipes this month were:
{Chicken Enchiladas} <-- big hit at Bunco!
{Strawberry Muffins}
Gluten-free or not, I think you should give them a whirl!

How are your resolutions 1/2 of the year through?
Are you ready for July!? Any fun plans?
