Happy Friday! I’m so excited for this weekend for two reasons. #1- it’s my first non-working weekend in weeks. #2- it’s the last weekend of February. Spring will be here so soon! Though going by the forecast and the fact that this was my view on my afternoon stroll at work yesterday…..
I’d say spring has already arrived! It was gorgeous. The students were laying all over the lawnMy weekend plans include touring some more houses this afternoon, hanging with my friend Danielle tomorrow, sleeping in, and probably enjoying some more of this warm weather.
This week has been a blur, to be honest. The last few weeks of the admission reading cycle are always crazy, but I feel like it’s taking so much effort to stay on top of things. I’m literally having dreams about going on vacation, so it’s pretty clear I need one!
Anyway, in my efforts to try and savor the little things, I hereby bring you the most random of Friday Favorites. Enjoy.
New Baht & Body Works Lotion
The new Essential Oils body creams are the greatest thing ever. I’ve been putting this lavender sandalwood lotion on every day this week and it smells amazing. It’s also making my skin super soft. My favorite thing to do is put some on before bed after I wash my face.
I wasn’t kidding about the spring weather. Even the daffodils think it’s spring and have been popping up everywhere! I just hope they don’t disappear and not come back in March.
34 Easy Ways to Lose Weight Fast
This Buzzfeed article had me cracking up! Reminds me of all the terrible and unrealistic dieting advice women’s magazines have been dispensing for years. My personal favorite was “Instead of going to happy hour, drink some lukewarm water alone on your couch.” Like I’m passing up happy hour!
When I was planning my wedding, I used to watch Four Weddings and Say Yes To The Dress obsessively. Well, now that we’re in house hunting mode, even Riley has started watching HGTV with me! Our favorite is Fixer Upper. They are the best couple and the houses are amazing. I wish they’d come to Williamsburg and do one for us….
I thought for sure I’d have a longer list, but that seems to about wrap it up! Runners up that I don’t have visual evidence for include:
- Mid-week bubble bath on Wednesday
- Running at the gym and listening to the “running” playlists on Spotify
- The pimiento cheese sandwich I ate for lunch on Wednesday
Have a great weekend!
