Friday. You finally came! This week was more than I could handle and I am so happy to be ending it. It wasn't the crazy amount of reading or assignments. It just felt... yuck.
Which is why I am so happy to be linking up with Natasha and the ladies for a 5 on Friday :)
one. It is my
I started this blog as a way to journal life's changes, to record my recipes, and to connect with others. Thank for reading, whether it is your first time, or a regular visit for you!
I had a target moment this week (read: every week, and sometimes twice). I went in for razors and came out with 15 things. I know I am not alone in this.
But I got these adorable polka dot leggings for $5 and they are my new favorite pjs. Thank you Target.
three. I live in a generous community
I am planning an event for school and asking local businesses to donate gift cards. The event includes a silent auction, where the gift cards will be sold to raise money. All of the money from the event goes to provide grants for students interested in doing women's public interest.
I started asking for donations two days ago and have been blown away by the support in the community. I have had so many restaurants, stores, and salons provide gift cards for the auction - some are over $100.
I am so thankful to live in such a supportive community.
four. New shoes
On one of those donation visits, I picked up these cute flats for $10. And I might be going back tomorrow for a coat. Aren't then adorable? I am hoping AR doesn't notice I bought new shoes. He always gets sad when I tell him home much I spent. Women's shows can be purchased so much cheaper than men's!
five. New Ab Workout
I found this on pinterest and find it SO helpful. I hope you do too!
I have become much more committed to my strength training since my last marathon, but ab workouts are hard. This was a good visual to help me figure out what I need to focus on.
Hope you have an awesome week!
