I Can't Even Handle This Week

I'm baaaaack :) And linking up with Lauren to share my highlights from the week!

one. Took a little study break to practice my shooting with Adam. Let's just say...I need a lot more practice. We still had a blast though!

two. Yoga time! I am by no means a yogi, but starting off the morning with some relaxing stretching and a cup of coffee is not something to complain about. 

three. Loving my new workout top from Ellie. Hot pink & a fun back...I'm in!

four. This is my Essie spring line up! From left to right: Navigate Her, Cocktail Bling, Tarte Deco, Mint Candy Apple, Ballet Slippers

five. I am officially a NASM Certified Personal trainer! Y'all, it feels GOOD to say that! That was one of the hardest exams that I've ever taken (and I've taken a bunch), and I'm so relieved to have passed. Hard works pays off, let me tell you. I want to thank all of y'all for the encouragement & support via text, email, Instagram, comments, Twitter...I am so blessed to have so many people rooting for me. THANK YOU! My support system is so important to me. My friends took me out for sushi to celebrate last night (I considered having them all wear yoga pants...seemed fitting), some people from work got me a bottle of wine & UM Aubrey (my rockstar blog designer) surprised me with a new about blurb. I'm in awe.

I'll be doing a post about my exam experience and future plans sometime next week!

A few other things:

- The winner of the Target gift card is Annelise Rowe...congrats girl, I emailed you :)
- I'm considering incorporating more fitness-based content into the blog. Thoughts? What would y'all like (or not like) to see?

Enjoy this Easter weekend, y'all! (Can you believe it?!)
