Oh Hey, Friday!
For a short week, the past four days seemed super long. Anyone else? Work has been demanding, ragweed is sending my allergies into overdrive, and a few personal things had my head spinning. But you have to look at the bright side, right? Here are five things that helped me get through the week:
I started Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred last Tuesday. Even though I already work out every day, I wanted to kick it up a notch. The first three days were challenging but I stuck with it. I begin Level 2 today (there are three levels) and am down 3 pounds! The best part is that the workout lasts under 30 minutes. You can complete it quickly and from the comfort of your living room. Double win! If you’ve completed all three levels, tips are appreciated!
I was selected to host a Beauty Bash from Birchbox and Benefit Cosmetics. As a makeup lover, I am elated to receive a box full of Benefit goodies! The package will include party favors, decorations, and samples for me and five others. I can’t wait to get it in the mail! I’m a huge fan of Benefit- this is a dream for me! Speaking of Benefit, a friend from high school gave me a bottle of Cha Cha Tint and Lolli Tint-the two cheek stains I haven’t tried! I cannot wait to experiment with new colors.
Of all the pumpkin flavored goodies available, pumpkin ale is my favorite. Jason bought me three 6 packs… Can’t wait for the weather to cool down a bit so I can give them a try!
Signs of fall around the house. I added a few pumpkin decorations and bought two mums. I’m hunting Pinterest for an awesome porch idea. If you’ve seen something fabulous, send it my way!
On Saturday, we’re attending the Black Jacket Symphony performance of Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. The BJS members perform the album in its entirety and then play the band’s greatest hits. We went to the Purple Rain show in May and it was a blast… It wasn’t Prince, but it was the next best thing! Side note: Fleetwood Mac is one of my favorite bands. We had the opportunity to see them in concert last year and I declined because I didn’t want to be out late on a work night. Because I’m a nut.
What got you through the week?
