Number One: My Weekend Recap
You guys, I thought my weekend recap was hilarious. I'm not very good at being funny (at least being funny and not ruining it by babbling for way too long) so I was super proud of that post. Yes, I am absolutely tooting my own horn and I am totally okay if not a single other person thought it was funny. (Michael caught a glimpse of my, "I'd like to thank the Academy" joke about losing a Bloglovin' follower and said it was funny...that's big, because he always tells me how dumb my jokes are [and then I get really cranky with him because as I said, I think I'm super funny...ha!].)
Number Two: Cold Brew
Sometimes, when you have a three and a half hour meeting (more like a presentation...that was absolutely pointless) to start off your day, you have to get a venti cold brew from Starbucks. (Also I was obsessed with this outfit because this is one of my new favorite shirts...and I got to wear my bralette--they are currently buy one get one free, FYI; I did the 2 for $32 promo but I would've saved $5 more if I had waited until now!) If you want to know how we make cold brew at home without fancy supplies (we haven't in a while, but I'm itching to) you can read my super unprofessional how-to post here!
Number Three: Thank You Notes
As of April 10th, we've been married for six months. I didn't write a single thank you note until Tuesday. I wrote five on Tuesday, and a) it felt awesome to finally not stress about the fact that I hadn't started, b) I'm pretty sure all five of the thank you's I wrote were to people (including the company I work for) who have been extremely supportive to myself, my mom, and my family since the loss of my dad. So I just have such an even bigger appreciation for these people than just for a wedding gift.
Yes, I did sit in bed watching House Hunters and eating Rolos that night, thank you very much.
Number Four: Dog Nose Prints
I was driving to work on Tuesday morning and looked in my rearview mirror to see a smattering of dog nose prints alllll over the back window. Normally messes kind of stress me out, especially in our new car, but this just made me think fondly of my sweet pups. It was a good moment. (Also, can you really be stressed about nose prints on the window after your dog takes a poop in the car?)
Number Five: Fitbit Champ
I always love when I do super well on my Fitbit goals. And yes, I left my weight there. I usually always crop it out because we're supposed to be embarrassed by our weight, amIright? Also I'm more like 140 pounds now, so it's not even accurate. (My 58:25 workout was Zumba, but I killed time before Zumba by doing 30 minutes on the elliptical. *insert flexing emoji here*)
Number Six: Zumba At Any Age
Sooo numbers two through six now allll refer to things that happened on Tuesday...apparently I had a really awesome Tuesday. Anyway, I do always love Tuesday nights because it's my Zumba night! This week, there was an old lady (probably in her 80s) there and everyone seemed to know her (including the TRX instructor who taught the class before Zumba...if she does TRX she's more badass than me). The moves are pretty dang fast, but she stayed the whole class and just did everything at her own pace. I loved her. I think it's awesome that she's getting some exercise (especially one that includes shimmying and hip thrusting--I hope I'm doing that when I'm old!).
Number Seven: Celeste Barber
Ever heard of Celeste Barber? I hadn't either until this week. I stumbled upon this article in my news feed and it cracked me up. Her Instagram is gold.
Number Eight: Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
I just started reading this this week and I'm loving it. First of all, I love mystery diagnoses, but I also love her writing style. I can't really explain it...I think it's the language she uses? I don't know, but it makes it read less like a biography and more like a novel, which I'm into.
Number Nine: Baby ducks!!!
THE DUCKS AROUND OUR APARTMENT COMPLEX HAD BABIES! Ugh, so cute. You guys don't know this, but I had pet baby ducks when I was younger. We raised them until they were old enough to be released. So I have all the heart eyes emojis for these little ones!
Number Ten: These three.
Yeah, yeah they're always my favorites, etc. Basically I couldn't think of a number ten so I was scrolling through my phone and decided to go with this picture.
