You can see my last Life Lately post here.
It’s been four weeks since I lasted posted on the different things that are going on. It’s crazy to think just how much has happened since then!
One things I did spend on was this Southern Elegance Candle. This is by far the most delicious candle I have EVER bought. It smells so strongly of peach. I was honored to meet the honor and she’s amazing. Also, they’re made locally! No, really, they’re build right here in Raeford, NC! #shopsmall is definitely a thing in our household and I would be happy to pay for these any day of the week.
Last night, I got together with a group of wonderful ladies. My Casey and Ellen(far left)’s Andrew are both away right now, so it’s nice to have people to get together with while the boys are gone. Sometimes it’s nice to have someone to do nothing with.
One of my sorority sister’s is in town for the month and I’ve gotten to have dinner with her twice. Kelly is one of my favorite people in the whole world, so it’s been really nice to be in the same place as her! Don’t let the fact that I haven’t been taking pictures lately be indicative of anything.
I started the weekend with a to-do list a mile long, with lots of things I plan on conquering over the next day and a half. A couple of weeks ago, I promised myself that if I did two weeks of Crossfit successfully, I would treat myself to a much-needed pedicure. Well, I did it! I tore up my hands and slammed my shins into the box jumps (my max is definitely 29″) but I still went 4-5 times each week, which is my goal. Three more successful weeks and I’m going to give my hair some fresh color! Non-food rewards are definitely the way to go!
This morning’s pedicure left me with pink toes and all the energy to get things done! Happy Saturday!
