This Week’s Happy’s #1

Hey guys, yup, I failed with the 3 posts this week. While I had good intentions of popping in on Wednesday, life happened, and that’s the way it is! My life is about to start getting 10x busier, so I will blog when life gives me a bit of free time. I love this blog and want to keep it running for as long as possible, but if I can only give you several posts a week, that’s just how it’ll have to be for a bit. I can’t wait until I can talk more about life’s big plans, but I will share with you the moment I am able to!

That being said, I’ve had a wonderful week, and here are just a few of the things that have made me smile this week!

New Lipstick

I don’t know about you ladies, but new make-up just puts me in a good mood. I decided to put on my sassy pants over the weekend and buy lipstick, something that I have never done, in a bright color that I never would have worn, and I’m loving it! It makes me feel happy and all divalicious!

Big Bowls of Peanut Butter & Maple Syrup Oatmeal

I eat two of these bowls a day. Breakfast and either lunch or a snack. It makes my stomach happy, and the slow-digesting carbs and fat do a wonderful job of keeping me full throughout the day!

Brinkley’s 1st Birthday

My beautiful Goddaughter turned 1 on Wednesday. How is that even possible?! This little peanut has brought such happiness into my life, and I am incredibly blessed to be her Godmother. Can’t wait to celebrate this lovebug on Saturday!

I’ve never been one to grab the leftover snacks in our work kitchen, but on Wednesday, those donuts looked SO good! Don’t even get me started on the frosting on the cake. It would have been so easy to lift the plastic lid and steal a spoonful of frosting, especially since I had an excessive amount of carbs and fat macros left, but, I want this cut that I’m on bad enough. I walked in and out of this kitchen about 4 times, and I managed to not even take one little chip. YES to motivation and drive!

imageNew Running Shoes – Mizuno Wave Catalyst

Ohhhh there is just nothing better than a new pair of shoes. It’s like my obsession with the smell of a new book. The Mizuno Wave Catalyst is a brand new shoe hitting their product line. It’s perfect for those looking for a responsive, lightweight, yet supportive run. You get to feel fast without sacrificing the support that you might need. Coming in at a light 8 oz (W) & (9.4 oz (M). and a 10mm drop, these shoes are simply fabulous! While I did receive these shoes in exchange for 3 social shares, I do have to say that these are in the top 3 of my favorite running shoes that I’ve ever run in.
