Wow! The week after spring break felt like a weird combination of fast and slow! Nevertheless, Friday is here! Woo hop! Here are five things on my mind this lovely day…
Wedding time! The Mr. and I are attending a wedding this weekend in Roanoke, VA. We are excited to see many of the Mr.’s fraternity brothers at the wedding, but we are mostly excited just to have a night to ourselves. I think I’ve been personally counting down to this weekend for at least a month or two. We don’t have anything like an official “date night” which I feel must be mostly an urban legend. I always look up venues before the actual wedding, and I’m totally excited to see this one. Photos from Schaal’s Catering & Events
Not sure if the venue will look exactly like this, but isn’t it beautiful!?!?!
New dress! After much hemming and hawing, I finally got a new dress. After shopping at a pricey store here in Town Center VB, I decided to do some perusing at the trifecta of deals, the Marshalls-Ross-TJMaxx. Sure enough, I found a dress I liked in my size and the color I wanted at Marshalls for fifty bucks! This was so much better than the one I was tempted to buy at the more pricey store.
Cute, huh? I’m going to pair mine with some nude open-toe sling backs.
My top 5 favorite on the road snacks!
- water bottle filled!
- red grapes
- apple with almond butter
- fruit bar
Love this video showing a girl who does pushups for 100 days to challenge herself to become stronger…love the progress this video shows!
I signed up for a Mud Run that is a week and a day away. I immediately have buyer’s remorse after I pay for/register for an event. Like, I should have spent the money on something else for instance this week I’m thinking about socks for me, Roscoe P’s upcoming vet visit, and Holden’s need of a new spring/summer wardrobe. However, what’s done is done. It always good to challenge yourself *myself* and work towards a goal. I have a love-hate relationship with running. Hate: the first five to ten minuets always!, how red and sweaty it makes me (there’s no recovering without a full shower) Love: how much energy and confidence in general it gives me, the best mood changer, the feeling like I got a real workout in, health benefits, an extremely low heart rate (seriously, I’m barely alive according to my heart rate and that tickles me to no end, so weird). Here’s a nice summary of the health benefits!
What are you up to this Friday?
Any favorite road trips snacks that are healthy options?
