Fridaaaaay! I’m so happy to see you. This week has been so long. Mostly because I haven’t worked a full week in a month, thanks to the holiday break and snow. I know, poor me! I’m working tomorrow too, but only for a couple hours.
So how are you guys doing? I’m finally feeling better after being sick all week. Long work week AND being sick! It was a double whammy, but I’ve been eating super healthy and getting lots of sleep, so that’s helped. We got our pictures taken at work on Tuesday and I had to set a reminder for myself to wash my hair. It’s been that kind of week! Once a week is fine, right? Right?!
We also mailed out a huge batch of acceptance letters, so we spent a lot of time assembling the packets to go out. It’s been killing my hands, so my new best friend has been this hand lotion that I got in my winter FabFitFun box.
It’s the best! I’ve never spent $30 on a hand lotion before, but when this stuff runs out I think I might have to start. It’s paraben free, vegan, cruelty free, and approved for sensitive skin, so I’d say it’s worth the money. I’ve gotten two boxes from FabFitFun and they’re the best. You get like $400 worth of stuff for $49 and it’s all things I love. I also like that they throw items in that I wouldn’t normally buy for myself, so it feels like a giant present on my doorstep whenever I get a box. My last box had all this stuff in it:
Another highlight from this week was a mid-week office baby shower for Kim, who’s due in March. One of our staff members, CJ, put the whole thing on himself and he did a phenomenal job. I seriously think he has a future in event planning!
One of the downsides to being sick was that I missed the gym for the first half of the week. Getting up at 5 AM to work out just wasn’t going to happen! I made up for it all last night, though, when I took a class called “The Practice” at my yoga studio. They only offer it occasionally, but I took it back in the summer and had the best experience. A full workout, complete with sage and a super long savasana at the end. I can’t even describe what it was like, but it put me in the best frame of mind and I can’t wait to do it again!
Now I’m off to get this weekend started. After work tomorrow, I’m going to lunch with my co-worker, then baby shower #2 for Kim. After that, I don’t really have any other plans for the rest of the weekend! I’m sure there will be some meal planning in there somewhere (more on that Monday!) and lots of napping.
Have a great weekend!
