Hello Weekend
Hello Weekend

Did anyone else FINALLY feel back in the swing of things this week? It's not a bad feeling, and coupled with a three-day weekend ahead, it's a really awesome feeling! Here are a few things that caught our eye this week!

  • Almond Crusted Chicken Nuggets - Since this week has been fairly quiet most evenings, I've been a bit more adventurous in the kitchen. I've enjoyed trying some new dishes and flavors, but I'm also craving some comfort food. I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs and am planning to make these next week.
  • Bikini Body - I'm really proud that this awesome lady is a fellow Kentuckian. As women, I think it is important to take care of our bodies and appreciate them for everything they allow us to do. Whenever I look in the mirror and think my butt is too big or my calves are too muscular, I try to turn my thoughts to gratitude for my ability to walk and run and do all of the other things I love doing.
  • These Booties - I've been eyeing these booties since September and tried to hold out until they went on sale - but that never happened! I broke down and ordered them earlier this week and have been wearing them nonstop since they arrived. I ordered them in the "putty" color, but if you like them in navy, I found them on sale on Abercrombie's website of all places. *Disclaimer: They'd probably smell like the cologne your high school boyfriend doused himself in everyday. Anyways, I'm officially on the booties bandwagon (3 years after everyone else...)!
  • Oh You Steppin' - The health and wellness program where I work offered super discounted Fitbits for employees who sign up for a step-counting challenge, so as someone on the fence about the Fitbit craze, this was enough to push me over the edge. I'm one of the worst users ever because I don't really like wearing the thing (honestly, it makes for a less cute arm party), so I usually take it off after I reach my 10,000 steps. While it's amusing to see people marching around and swinging their arms for the sake of a few steps and free swag, if it makes people more conscientious about staying healthy, then I'm a supporter!
