It’s been a bit of an off week for us. Josh was sick over the weekend til Monday and home from school. Then I got it. Still fighting it. And yesterday and today Lila woke up with a fever. Not to mention a busy hubby and all the other weekly activities. Needless to say, several little things came in handy this week since I was basically stuck at home. First up…
My new treadmill…Bo
Yep….Dora was there with me while I ran today. She kinda creeped me out but Lila had been playing in my room. And I named my treadmill Bo. Yep, just because. That name is special to me for a lot of reasons so it seemed fitting. With all the sickness I’ve gotten to run 3 times at home and it is AMAZING. And so stinking easy since it’s in my room! Loving it. On that note, my hair hasn’t gotten a lot of love this week. All the sickies and running and lack of motivation quite frankly has left me needing some help. Enter…
This stuff is AMAZING! It has a built-in conditioner as well. Spray it on that sweaty mess and 5 minutes later your hair will feel clean and shiny and smooth. Did I say AMAZING? Yes, this girl needed all the help this week. I also discovered this…
My hair isn’t really curly, but it has some curl underneath. And it’s thick. You rub this in when it’s wet and it helps it dry with some kick. I just let it dry on its own and it still looks cute and wavy! Lila has been sick, which meant lots of….
I think it’s just viral. But she sure is cute when she’s sick. Give that girl some motrin though and all the ornery comes out. She’s an absolute mess.
Ok. I promised ya’ll a review of these Athleta shorts from last week’s Friday Faves so here it is.
I hate to say this ya’ll, but they rode up. NOOOOOOO!! You know how much I LOVE Athleta. But these shorts just didn’t work for me. Here’s what I decided. I have a really long torso. Like, really long. These shorts sit higher on the waist so they just kept going higher as I ran, making the legs ride up. I still love the way they fit and will wear them around all summer, but I had to stop my run to take them off. So sad. But, I still stand by Athleta, this just wasn’t the right cut for me. They are some of the most flattering shorts I’ve ever put on with plenty of room in the leg, which can often be a challenge for me. So I’m counting that a win.
Tuesday I met my lead trainer for Texas Fit Chick’s and friend at an amazing little spot here in the area…
Ya’ll. This is the cutest little donut shop ever. We had salads and took a free donut home “for the kids.” Yea right. It was 11am. Kids get out at 3. You do the math. Sadly, my single donut needed to go away so as to not start a fight. I was happy to help with that. If you live nearby, go check them out. Great owner’s. Great food. Great little atmosphere.
So, with Rob working a lot this week I’ve had some time on my hands after the kids go to bed. Folding laundry just didn’t seem appealing so I crashed on the couch every night with Chip and Joanna. I may move to Waco just to be friends with them. I’m dead serious.
I can watch HGTV for the most part and still love my house and not want to move or bust down any walls. But when I watch Chip and Jojo rip apart a house, it makes me want to do the same thing. It’s so cool to watch how awesome their houses become, and I LOVE her style. And the girl seriously has the best jeans. Every episode she has a cute pair of jeans, and I’m a jeans girl. We should be besties. I’m also so excited about this!!!…..
Ya’ll. I get to jam with my chick’s during bootcamp with this bad boy. I love music and I’m kind of a freak when it comes to good workout and running tunes. When this comes in the mail next week, it’s party time at the Anderson house. Can you tell I’m excited about my new job?!
Ya’ll. Best investment EVER if you have boys.
It’s instant entertainment. Even the Fisher Price one we had when they were little was amazing. It doesn’t have to be expensive or top end. But, I’m a big advocate of my kids playing outside and not sitting in front of the TV all the time. Trust me, they camp out in front of the XBox every Saturday morning because they aren’t allowed to play it during the week. They’re like a pack of hungry wolves, and not for the pancakes. So, I shoo them outside as much as I can to offset the screen obsessions that can take place. This goal provides hours of entertainment for them, and fun for me and my hubby, as well as some relaxing time for me.
At the Hope Spoken conference we were all given FREE Day Designer’s by Whitney English.
Sorry this isn’t the best pic, this is better…
It includes a year and a half of months at a glance, daily pages for organizing and to do’s, dinner planning, budgeting, things to download etc. It’s awesome. I now have a job to add to my to do’s so this is going to come in handy. Plus, it’s just pretty and I LOVE anything I can use colored sharpies on to organize and write stuff down. I’m a pen and paper gal.
I got a fun package in the mail!! Loving my Vega Sport Products. I’ve told ya’ll before I have a sensitive system when it comes to sports related products. But these I’m loving. I’ll post a full review once I try them all and I may even include a yummy recipe so stay tuned. For now, know this may be my new fave product.
Ok, that does it!! Hope ya’ll stay allergy and fever free this weekend!!! Don’t forget to go visit Erika’s blog and link up for Friday Faves. This is my favorite day of the week. Happy Friday friends!!
