Hello! Welcome to Tuesday!
Every other Tuesday, I am able to go into work late and today is one of those Tuesdays. Also, the sun is shining. So far, I call the day a success.
I have not done a “What I’m Loving” post in awhile and today seemed like the perfect day to do so! I feel like I’ve been loving a lot lately so let’s get to it!
…my new blue running tights.
I bought these last Friday before my race on Saturday. I knew I wanted to wear blue and yellow to run, so I stopped by TJMaxx on my way home from work. I walked into the fitness apparel aisle and there they were. One pair of blue pants. In my size. It was meant to be. They had a front iPod pocket which actually held my phone without letting it bounce around too much…which is always important!
I am definitely loving the longer days. Brighter mornings and later nights? Perfect! I especially love the longer days because of Jazzercise. I always teach evening classes and I feel so much more energized when I’m teaching with some sunshine instead of the dark 5pm classes that I have to teach in the winter! I think the students seem to have more energy, too!
…my flower girl dress.
I was not exactly sure what kind of dress I wanted for my flower girl, but I knew I did not want a white one that looked like the bride’s. My mom and I went on a search last weekend and, after making a final decision on about three different dresses, I rounded the corner of the store and saw the perfect one. It blew every other one out of the water! I’m so excited to see her in it…she is going to look so adorable!!
I have seen this flavor plastered all over Instagram, Twitter, and blogs. Everyone raved about it and said it was ‘one of their favorites,’ so, of course, that meant that I had to run out and try it. The verdict? I love it! It’s now one of my favorites!
Lee and I went to Chili’s for dinner to celebrate his birthday and, when I’m there, I always get the chicken fajitas (without the onions!). However, I was feeling adventurous and decided to branch out and get something different. I chose the Mango-Chile Chicken, which was amazing! The chicken was spicy with a killer bite, but the mango salsa was sweet and the avocados were cool and the balance was simply perfect! I will definitely be trying to recreate this recipe at home!
…Maybelline EyeStudio gel eyeliner.
If there is one thing that you must know about me, it’s that I love eyeliner. I don’t like to leave the house without it on my eyes. I am all about going au natural sometimes but I just feel like life gets better with black eyeliner. i really don’t discriminate and will use pencil, liquid, gels, etc. I recently bought this new liner and absolutely love it! It goes on smoother than any liner I’ve tried and does not smudge throughout the day! Two important qualities!
…Pumpkin Flax granola.
I found this at one of our local grocery stores and decided to give it a whirl. I tried some on top of my yogurt for breakfast and it was great! The crunch added a nice texture and I could really taste the pumpkin seeds! No doubt that I will be snacking on it by the handfuls!
Alright, friends! There you have it! The things I’m loving! Now, get on board and share yours!!
With much Love and Laughter,
