Happy Friday!! Did you guys survive the work week ok? Before we start, thanks so much for all your amazing comments on Wednesday. It was so great to hear your thoughts and for us all to realize we’re not alone in how we often view social media. I’d say I plan on taking a break from Instagram, but how else would you see pictures of my pets?
I got home yesterday from my work trip. I’m working tomorrow, but it’s all good because it’s Admitted Freshman Day, aka one of my favorite days of the year! Yes, I know, it’s super nerdy to get excited about a work event, but you guys don’t even know. I met some of these kids last summer and now it’s finally time for them to make their big decision. The weather should be gorgeous, so I’m pretty pumped.
Let’s get right into my favorites from this past week, shall we? Feel free to share yours in the comments!
Weezer- Feels Like Summer
I’ve had this song on repeat for the last week and I can’t get enough of it!
The best part about just listening to one song on Spotify is that it starts a radio station based off the song after you listen and I was jamming all the way down the road to some of the best songs. Made me think of a summer BBQ outside, sipping on a nice cold beer….ahhh, summer, please hurry up.
It was pretty great to get out of the office this week. After being cooped up for months, spending a few days on the road recruiting was much needed. Talking to families is one of my favorite parts of my job, and we had a ton of guests at our events.
I got to enjoy some gorgeous views from my room.
And I collapsed into bed almost every night, totally wiped from all the talking and being “on.”
I could tell I was reeeeally tired yesterday when I was packing up my suitcase to come home and I muttered to myself, “alright Kelly, let’s blow this taco stand.”
I later had to google “let’s blow this popsicle stand” to make sure I wasn’t crazy. Of course, I was muttering to myself in an empty hotel room, so my sanity is debatable either way.
Fitbit Charge 2
My new Fitbit came!!!
I’ve had the Charge HR for the last 8 months or so, but it was basically falling apart. Since it was still under warranty, Fitbit offered me a free replacement or 30% off a brand new device. I took the 30% since I had my eye on the new Charge 2.
You guys. The features on the new one are amazing! You get interchangeable bands, for one. The picture above is with a “champagne gold” metal band I bought off Amazon so it would look more bracelet-like when I’m at work. There are also deep breathing breaks you can do, additional fitness features, sleep cycle tracking, and more. I’m in love!
Pellegrino and Perrier sparkling water
I am officially the snobbiest of all snobs. I love sparkling mineral water now. I think La Croix was my gateway water and now I’ve gone off the deep end. I remember the days when I scoffed at people who paid to drink water out of a fancy glass bottle, but now I can’t even tell you how great it is!
Feel free to judge me. I even judge myself.
If you need me, I’ll be sipping fancy water at my desk all day and catching up on work. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
