Oh, well, hello. HAPPY MAY FRIENDS! It is another slow Saturday morning here in Savannah, Georgia. Thanks for sitting down with me bright and early this Saturday morning. Like most mornings, I’ve got some Blue Lady Black from Zest Tea in my mug this morning. There is nothing like this cup of tea to get me going. Today should be a tentatively busy day, as I’ll be going to Orange Theory in the morning and going to a Pure Barre event with the Savannah Chapter of the Kappa Kappa Gamma Alumnae Association this afternoon.

Sneakers

It seems like my favorite sneakers might be at the end of their lives. I originally bought these Reebok CrossFit Speed TR on a Black Friday Sale in November 2016 for $90. That means it’s come out to just over $5 per month, not bad at all.

I was perusing the Reebok Crossfit store and it seems like they replaced the Speed TR with the Grace TR. They’re usually $100. I was looking at Giftcard Granny; there was a $50 gift card from Ebay for $45. I’ll pair that with the 2% (90 cents) I get back on Ebay from Ebates. With the free shipping from Reebok directly, paired with the fact that these are on sale right now, these $100 sneakers should net under $75! Not too bad. I just need them to last just as long.

 

My New Leggings

I got a new pair of Zyia leggings! These Floral Light n Tight High Rise Workout Leggings have POCKETS and are phenomenal. I shared about my first pair of Zyia leggings in March. They’re so great that when I realized I needed another pair of leggings,  going with Zyia was a no-brainer.

I now have these leggings in floral and in black. I also have the Black Bomber Jacket. This is particularly great because it’s the perfect weight for these spring days where it’s just a tad chilly when I leave for the gym but stupid hot by the time I get inside.

If you’re thinking about getting some 🔥 Zyia gear for your self, can I suggest checking out Joyce or Angi on Insta!

My New Standing Desk

It’s not really a secret that I’m obsessed with my desk.When I lived in Baltimore, I only worked at a standing desk and I’ve been getting that itch again. I recently bought Deskbound. Even though I haven’t started it, I know that I should stand more than I do. It’s not enough to just workout for one hour per day. I’ve been working towards a more encompassing lifestyle improvement. To me, this is just one part of that.

The cool thing about this particular contraption is that it goes up and down. In other words, I’m not married to only standing by having bought this. I’d like to aim to hit the standing ring on my apple watch a lot more often now that I don’t really have an excuse.

Wedding Planning

I rescheduled the wedding and got to restart all of the planning. Not at all stressful. We have the venue, the photographer, and the videographer updated. I hit a snag in updating the church because they have a wedding on the only date the venue had available, which likely means we’ll need a new church. If you know a Catholic Church near the Jersey Shore (bonus points if it’s very close to Belmar), I would love an intro!

I hope you enjoyed this slow moment of me sharing my Saturday Morning Tea with you. What’s on your mind right now?
