Friday things 3.10.17

Happy Friday morning! I hope this post finds you well, maybe eating a delightful breakfast or sipping on some hot coffee and enjoying the quiet of the morning. I hope your week rounded out nicely for you and that you are looking forward to what the weekend has to offer. I know I always look forward to the weekends and with only a haircut scheduled and a few errands to run, it’s pretty open to spontaneous weekend things. We’ve had blustery windy days here this week and it’s going to be rather cold this weekend unfortunately but I hope to still get out for a walk or two to enjoy some fresh air. What sort of things do you have planned?

I have been receiving the “Rock your happy” newsletter since the start of the year, and though I’ve mentioned it before on the blog, I absolutely love it. One of the daily prompts was to schedule more fun/things that make you happy into your days. I’ve been trying to do this, even in the smallest of ways, and it’s helped keep me more positive this week. Here are a few of the things I tried that I loved… Continue reading “Friday things 3.10.17”

Friday favorites 3.3.17

Happy Friday! I have been missing this space and I felt out of sorts when I wasn’t able to write last week. The past few weeks have been challenging professionally and I just wanted to chalk it up to the winter blues, but I also know that I can’t ignore these things either. So I’m trying to get creative and think of other avenues to explore. But, how about you? How did this week treat you?

I am very much looking forward to this weekend. I am finally getting together with some long-lost girlfriends on Saturday evening. I also have plans to finish the book I’m reading, take a walk outside, and enjoy some down time. Ahhh, the life indeed. I really can’t wait.

Before the weekend gets underway, I’d love to share a few favorites of mine lately… Continue reading “Friday favorites 3.3.17”

Friday things…

Happy Friday morning to you! Fridays feel so good especially when the sun is shining and the weekend is supposed to be sixties and sunny! I feel like everyone has spring fever and will take full advantage of this beautiful weekend with lots of walks, bike rides, runs, and maybe even some open windows (I most definitely will be opening up our sky light for some fresh air :)). How about you? What are your plans this weekend?

This week did go by pretty quickly but it definitely had some challenges. The workout our gym did on Monday destroyed me for most of the week. The muscle soreness I felt in my legs was about as sore as I was post-marathon…meaning, I could barely walk properly. I don’t mind being sore, but I do hate debilitating soreness. Additionally, I had some challenging coaching calls this week which definitely took the wind out of my sails and had me questioning why I do what I do. But, there are always bright spots in the day. Here are a few I wanted to share with you… Continue reading “Friday things…”

for you on Friday…

Good morning! It is Friday indeed and it seemed to sneak up on me this week. I was rushing from one task to the next, checking things off the to-do list, and multi-tasking to the max. Which means that I most definitely fell short on other things. Ugh. The balancing act is constant. However, after work on Saturday morning, I really want to take it easy and re-focus. I want to read, write, take a long walk, and just reconnect with myself. Alone time is a must and it’s something that I need to do a much better job at prioritizing. How are you taking care of you this weekend? Here are a few things I wanted to share with you before you jump into your day… Continue reading “for you on Friday…”

Friday things 2.3.17

Good morning and a very happy Friday to you! We’ve made our way through the never-ending month of January and now onto the nice, short month of February. We’ve had some sunshine this week which has helped my energy and spirits so much. I was even able to get out for a quick walk this week between going to the gym and work and it was so nice to breathe fresh air. I’m looking forward to spending more time outside this weekend by hopefully doing some ice skating and walking around Lake Geneva to enjoy the ice sculptures! What about you? What were some highlights of your week? Here are a few of mine… Continue reading “Friday things 2.3.17”
