As June slowly comes to a close, I’m feeling reflective and wanted to connect about life with you guys – hence a “currently” post! 🙂 It’s been an amazing last few days…We were out in the mountains near Revelstoke, British Columbia filming with our friend Brock, who we’ve been following on his cancer journey, and his wife Kristen and their son Ben. Our film (and life!) friend, Aaron (to whom belongs much of the photo credit below) and his son of the same age, Caleb, came to film and also be great company, so there was a group of us that was helicoptered up into the mountains and plunked down for a few days in the back country.
Current Celebration: Mikey finished his thesis! And today is Canada Day! And soon it’s the 4th of July! LOTS to celebrate.
(socks and shorts from 2XU Canada – just in time for Canada Day!)
Current Confession: I had cookie dough last night. A little bowl of it. But I don’t feel bad about it – not much to “confess” in that sense. 😉
Current Product Find: 2XU (pronounced “two times you” – human performance multiplied! Love that concept) After my trip to train with fitness professionals down in LA, I learned so much about this company and grew to love them. I gotta say, I’m loving their products and learning more about the value of compression. I was happy to take their X-Stride Short and X Tech S/S Top on a trial run in the backcountry, while training clients, and while training myself.
Verdict? So far, I love them both! Great fit on the top and while the shorts are a bit baggy, they are the perfect pair for outdoor work (I like my training clothes to be slightly tighter) – great for river trips and backpacking and both are SUPER lightweight. (I received the products at no charge to myself with a promised honest blog post in return; more to come!)
Current Book: I am still reading “Natural Born Heroes” by Chris McDougall, the same author or “Born to Run.” I’m loving it! Just not much of a reader, so it’s tough for me to stay engaged and finish a book when life gets busy. I really want to become a better reader though, like Mikey! He is very well-read for pleasure and for simply keeping his mind sharp! I love that.
Current Purchase: A Wonder Woman workout t-shirt and earrings from Wal-Mart. $10 shirt, $8 for a ton of neat earrings that I’m loving. 🙂
Current Drink: Water! We all were a little dehydrated at over 6,000 feet in the sun, and ever since I’ve been like a sponge with water. 😉
Current Holy Moley: Um…look at where we were last weekend! And all that’s coming up! It’s been a wild ride and now we are moving into a full, packed, adventurous summer and I am just so grateful and often blown away by all that we are able to experience…God is good and we are so thankful.
Current Show: “House of Cards.” We thought about it and researched it before we decided to get into it, and it’s been pretty fascinating. We can fast forward through all the sexual scenes, but in the second season so far there really aren’t many, and it sure makes you think about greed, power, money, and the almighty self. Not sure if we’ll go all the way but the acting is great and the story is pretty compelling. We are pulling the plug for a few days and resting from it though – too many other things to do and better uses of our time since it’s tough to keep it to 1 episode only!
More adventures and time with Mikey. And it’s coming! Post-thesis and a long year of work for us both, we are excited for the fun and time together and are declaring this summer “The Summer of Mike & Bon.” 😀
Current Gratitude: I am so, so thankful for Jesus. He has changed me, molded me, made me who I am, given me fresh life and ultimately such a hope that propels me daily. Despite my circumstances, I rest in His unchanging grace and faithfulness and have been very thankful for his intervention in my life.
