Hello, hello :)

I am SO incredibly glad to see Friday. This week has been a tough one for me.
Nothing bad has happened, but I just feel like I haven't had time to breathe. Burnt out!
Always on the go, go, go. But today I will be refueling by doing a big workout,
doing my Smell the Roses task for the week & maybe even laying out. It's gonna be

Moving right along...
Friday means linking up with Lauren to share my top 5 favorite things of the week.
So I'm gonna do just that!



THE COLOR RUN! A new run location opened up...in TAMPA! I let out a little
squeal when I found out. I've already registered and created a team...let's go team #ColorRevolt!
Can't wait to do this in December with a few friends :)


I have been on the hunt for the perfect white dress. Not too casual but not too dressy.
I finally found one! Thank you Forever 21! As soon as it arrives in the mail, I'm going to
wash it (yes, I wash all of my new clothes before I wear them) & then hopefully do an
outfit post wearing it :)


This little nugget. She has been extra cuddly this week AND she's even been sleeping
in and not waking me up at 6 AM! 

That is her "Please stop singing right now" face. And no, I did not stop singing ;)


Adam is trying his very hardest to live a healthier lifestyle...eating better and working out!
I'm SO proud of him :) One day this week he went to Whole Foods (oh how I love that place),
bought us both lunch & then brought it to the office to eat with me. HE IS TOO GOOD TO ME!


OBVIOUSLY my new blog design is a highlight of my week! I am obsessed.
Like sit and stare at it for 5 minutes straight without blinking obsessed. I have no shame :)

Enjoy your weekend, sweets! And don't forget to tell your mom (and grandma!) how much
you love & appreciate her :)

This is to you Toy! I love you and appreciate you so much :) I don't know where I would
be without you. Thank you for being the best grandma in the entire world. Yes, the entire world.
I look up to you and hope that my heart will be as big as yours someday! Love you forever!
