I Don't Want No Scrub...

Hello sweet people :) And happy, happy Friday! I really hope that you know where the title of my post came from...the songs "Scrubs" by TLC! Hello 6th grade memories! When you read my #5 at the end of this post, you'll see where the title comes in ;)

As usual, I'm linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk to share with you guys my top 5 favorite things from this past week.

Photobucket

one// 
I don't have a picture for this one, but last Friday I ran my fastest mile EVER. 7:16! That's huge for me! Especially because I ran it outside rather than on the treadmill. About 5 weeks ago, my outside mile was 10:03...huge improvement! Big thanks to Amanda for giving me some running advice!

two// 
I was pretty stoked when I saw this yesterday! And you know who I have to thank? YOU! :)



three// 
Adam surprised me and came over after work one day :) I threw together a quick dinner, and while I was cooking he sat on the back patio and fed the ducks. Look at how close they came up - they were eating the bread right out of his hands!



four// 
I woke up on Thursday morning and saw this sweet, sweet email on my phone. Seriously made my day! I'm so thankful for people who take the time to be kind & genuine. Thank you Nichola :)



five// 
You know that saying, "When you look good you feel good?" Well I normally wear jeans and a v-neck to work, because I hate waking up early to get ready. I'm a baby, I know. Plus, I work with my family and a bunch of 30+ year old dudes (excluding Adam, but I rarely see him at work) so I really don't care about looking fabulous at work. 

My younger brother really cares about appearance and always gives me a hard time for dressing "scrubby" at work. So this week I took the time to get ready and dress nice for work. And I'll admit, it did feel pretty good :) Here are a few of my outfits:


dress: Zara // shoes: Penney's 
jean jacket: Levi Store // necklace: Forever 21


top & skirt: Cotton On 
shoes: Payless


top: LOFT 
 skirt & bracelet: Forever21


And just an FYI - I doubt this will be a weekly thing...I like my sleep too much. Jeans & v-necks it is ;)
.............................

Enjoy your long weekend, friends! I'm hoping to spend a lot of my time outside in the beautiful Florida sunshine! 

And don't forget to enter the giveaway that I have going on this week...you could win a free header design for your blog by Natasha at Paper Crowns :)

Last thing, I promise! I'm giving away 2 Essie nail polishes today over at Crowley Party!

  6. I need to work on dressing up even if I don't have something going on or people to see too. There is just something about being put together. What kind of business does your family run?

  7. I have been trying to put myself together more when I'm not at work since when I'm at work I wear a costume (uniform) haha. You really do feel a lot better about yourself when you're wearing some cute clothes and feel put together =) Now I just wish I looked as put together as you when I go out, haha

  31. It's so true - when you look good you feel good! I know it's dorky but I put my outfits together before I go to bed at night so there's no thinking about it in the morning :)

  32. stopping by from Hollie takes notes...Fabulous blog. You are too cute and love your outfits. Have to agree with you when you look good you feel good. Always a motivation to put the extra work in being fit and putting together cute outfits! BTW awesome time on running. Seriously impressive. I have never done faster than 8:30 and I am not a runner. Can't find the love for it. I stick with the weights! Haha

    Looking forward to more of your posts. :)
