I haven't blogged in a bit and thought I'd touch base. A little life lately/What I'm Loving Lately for your week!
|This is me sharing the things I love with you. Haha...I'm just totally obsessed with this pic.|
-I was in Boot Camp Saturday doing my thang when all of a sudden I felt a "roll" and pop in my calf. I limped out of class and went home and AJ took me to InstaCare. Verdict? Calf strain/sprain. Boooo. Doc told me to avoid workouts for at least a week (nooooooooo) and keep it elevated and iced as much as possible. I had a pretty awful limp Saturday and Sunday but thankfully even though it's still super sore and tender, it's feeling better each day.
-All that leg elevated time allowed for plenty of reading time and I finished 2 books this weekend! "Barefoot" by Elin Hilderbrand (it was cute, not life changing, but a fun read) and "What I Know For Sure" by Oprah (This was a great little advice book that I'm glad to own as I'm sure I'll be returning to it time and time again).
-AJ and I started the Netflix show "13 Reasons" based on the book of the same title. We're only a few episodes in, but entertaining so far.
-My DVR was full (now empty thanks to aforementioned leg issues) of "Big Little Lies" (loved!), "Girls" (eh, not so sure about this new storyline. Please be a good finale), "The Voice" (always entertaining) and "American Crime" (a great show).
-There are 7 more school days until spring break and it's been a long time coming!
-I've been practicing bows and planning more for the Baby Bow Bash! Less than 2 months to go. I'm so excited about it.
-We've been on a taco salad kick lately. A great way to indulge Mexican cravings without going way far off the deep end. We do a combination of: grilled chicken, grilled peppers, corn, iceberg and baby greens, guac, cheddar, pico, sour cream, grape tomatoes, onions, olives. YUM!
What I'm Loving Lately:
-Tarte Pearly Girl Pen: I'm a definite coffee gal, but that can leave my teeth stained and not as white as I'd prefer. I did some internet research and decided to order this whitening gel pen from Sephora. I adore it. It's so much easier than White Strips and in my opinion just as good. One of my fave purchases of 2017 (so far!).
-Benefit Hoola Bronzer: It's getting warmer out and that means I want a nice pop of color on my cheeks. Like the Pearly Girl pen, I have heard great stuff about this stuff. I really really like it. It's a pretty legit bronze color so I don't think I'd use it in the middle of winter (my usual go to is Bare Minerals rose colored blush) but with summer coming up, it's great.
-Popcorn: I'll hold off on why popcorn is my newest obsession. I have a whole post dedicated to the stuff coming at you this week!
-Bath & Body Works Spring Scents: Our kitchen has Lemon Buttercream soap and I just put a spring-y scent in our Wallflower. I have Sweet Pea and Coconut Leaves scents ready to go for my school Wallflower. Bring on the floral/tropical/fresh scents!
-Spring Lesson Plans: While I am anxiously awaiting spring break, the last two months of the school year are awesome. Our butterflies arrive, we plant grass, we make Mother's Day gifts, learn about needs/wants, flowers, insects, make summer 'bucket lists" and learn how to tell time. It's fun. Can't hardly believe this is my 8th year of all this stuff! Yikes!
|Last year's grass never really grew. This year it's bountiful! I left school Friday and not one cup had one blade of grass. Now look!|
-Harmons: A few weeks ago I went to a "focus group" session at Harmons (an hour of feedback from customers and we each received a grocery gift bag. Score) It made me love Harmon's even more than I already did. Their produce, bakery, deli, meat counter is just so good and fresh. They have everything and I love their selection of local and "fancy" foods too (cheese bar? Amen).
As if hurting my leg on Saturday didn't make me feel like enough of an old lady, I am using this post to sing praises of a local GROCERY STORE?! I'm going to do something really young tonight to make up for it....Like stay up past 10:30?! Ha.
