Friends, I AM DONE WITH FINALS! I am 1/6 an attorney :) And I'm here to link up with the lovely Natasha at Hello Happiness! for 5 on Friday .
one. Christmas décor is out.
The tree, the table decorations, my door. I also got an adorable new wreath to hang on the front, but I haven't snapped a picture yet. I have about 5 million holiday scented candles burning and I love every minute of it.
two. New workout gear.
After my last final (ahhh!) on Wednesday, I picked up some new running gear for the cold weather. Two pairs of pants and a great new running top. Don't you love that color? I also grabbed some new running shoes at the Big Peach Running Co., which is a great local running store if you are in ATL. The staff is amazingly helpful and I visit them about once a week (I live 2 blocks away from one of their stores. It is a problem). I've had amazing workouts every since.
three. A clean apartment.
After finals, all I really wanted to do was clean my apartment. Is that weird? I spent three hours scrubbing the place down yesterday morning while listening to holiday music. My floors are mopped. My baseboards are scrubbed. My shelves are all dusted. I feel like a new person.
four. Visits from friends.
My friend Kathryn is visiting! She came yesterday to help me celebrate being done :) We made homemade pizza, drank wine, painted nails, and watched Nashville. AR joined in for a bit and brought cupcakes. That's why we don't mind him joining the ladies fest: he brings treats.
Kathryn and I are heading out for some Christmas shopping today. We are starting at Ulta (hot tools curling irons are on sale for $25!!) and then heading to the J.Crew outlet (50% off everything). Note that neither of those places are for gifts... opps.
five. Recipe cards
I save all my recipes in a box and I love cute recipe cards. AR surprised me with these this week and I think they are the cutest!
Have a good one!
