First of all I really want to say thank you for your comments on my (attempt at) fashion post! I’ve seriously read every single comment and can’t tell you how much I appreciate your insight. There was quite a consensus on what looked good and what didn’t do me any favors (thank you for your kind word choices!). I’m going to give more detailed feedback to my stylist and see if that helps, though a lot of Stitch Fix users seem to agree their clothes are more loose than figure flattering. Interesting!
Moving on, on a personal level this week has been full of some emotional challenges that aren’t really mine to share, but I’ve felt a little preoccupied and emotionally drained. Let’s just say I’m thrilled it’s Friday and looking forward to a low key, relaxing weekend!
Here’s a little peek into some things that happened this week that didn’t make the blog…
First up, those chia pods I mentioned! Can we first look at the best by date though?
Anyway, the pods. Personally it’s a texture thing for me and I found them to just be ‘eh.’ Hailey pretty much agreed with me, but Kaitlyn loved it! It was tedious trying to spoon it into her mouth, so I switched it into a reusable Little Green Pouch and she devoured it.
On the workout front, I completed this killer leg workout on Wednesday…
Wednesday night my Shaklee team had a health presentation event at which I had to speak to a room of about 50 people for approximately 60 seconds. Thanks for nothing college public speaking class; my heart still pounds like it’s trying to leap out of my chest when I have to speak to more than a handful of people at a time.
Fortunately my friend Andrea was up for sushi and wine afterwards, which took the edge off.
Yesterday afternoon the girls and I met up with Caitlin and Julie at the beach again. On our walk across the parking lot Hailey tripped on her flip flop and sprawled across the asphalt. I’ll give it to her, it looked like it hurt and her knees were scraped up but myyyyyy goodness you really would have thought she had broken both legs. When the girl gets a boo-boo, she commits fully to victim roll, complete with screams, cries and pouting for a solid 20 minutes. It’s actually quite impressive. I snapped a picture (bad mom), but can’t bring myself to post it, so let’s just say she looked about as opposite as you can get from smiley baby Claire.
Kaitlyn had a blast though, continuously running full speed into the water as I ran after her, scooping her up each time. Beach and relaxing no longer belong in the same sentence to me and I’m just hoping I haven’t completely scared Julie off from what her life is going to look like in a few short weeks- ha!
I’m really excited to meal plan for this next week because this week has been a bit all over the place. I made the girls smoothies for dinner last night, which was a hit.
and so easy. Why don’t I do that more often?!
Then I grilled chicken and sauteed all remaining veggies I had for David and me.
My fridge is now crying for me to make it to the grocery store.
We finished up last night with my favorite show, Master Chef, and snuggles on the couch.
And now I’m thinking we need a good movie for tonight!
Any movie suggestions that are either funny/light-hearted or a good thriller/action?
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
