Well this week has DRAGGED, but. . .it’s officially Friday and I am on V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! Heading to NYC for a girls weekend with my mom, aunt, sister, sister-in-law, and niece. It’ll be a great trip with a full itinerary that I am super excited to share!
Some things I’ll be talking about this weekend over cocktails include, but certainly not limited to:
1.) My “running” dreams were challenged this week. I’m not sure if it was from Pure Barre (Empower) on Monday night or running afterward, but I did something to my right knee and almost fell down stairs b/c of the pain – and I have a high tolerance for pain! I have still made it to Pure Barre all week, but I wasn’t pushing myself as much as I normally do and I’m hoping a weekend off is all I need and I can get back to it after the weekend.
2. 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die has always been my favorite beer. Even made a girls trip two years ago to visit the brewery (among other things)
A coworker knows this about me and told me about the Brew Free or Die Blood Orange IPA and whenever I find it, I have to buy a pack because it is THAT good! I’m surprised I made it three days before I opened my first one!
3. I am obsessed with these booties that I got this week – I will be wearing them in NYC, even though I feel they would be better for a country concert, but I’m obsessed and feel I need to show them off! I purchased them on Monday night and then got a $10 off coupon in the mail two days later, took my receipt in and got the $10 back PLUS $20 off to use for a future purchase! I’d say that was worth the trip! (Pay no attention to the dust on the mirror – it isn’t visible until the flash comes out!) I couldn’t decide which shoes were the right ones and took pictures from all angles and sent to many friends! Finally decided on the following pair – I’m still torn, but they were virtually the same (price and look), so I couldn’t justify two pairs!
4. I’m not a huge make-up person, yes, I wear it – but I have no idea what I’m wearing/doing. BUT I have found a few products I cannot live without and one includes the 5-in-1 Bare Minerals eye shadow. Truthfully, I’m probably not even wearing it right, but I LOVE the way it stays on all day long and goes on so smoothly! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
It’s been a busy week and I’m looking forward to a much needed mini-vacation ahead!
