Happy Thursday, friends! For many I think this is a Friday if you took off for the weekend. Unfortunately, I work a full day today (both jobs) and tomorrow. Boooooooo. But moving on to some thoughts I’ve been having! (P.S. Sorry for the shorter posts / lack … my wrist kills when I type which is making blogging and working difficult)
… I lovvvvvve TJ Maxx. I think ya’ll already know that, but seriously. It’s the only place I really get any clothes. Granted if I was closer to Forever 21, I’d probably shop there, too, but my TJ Maxx is pretty awesome. This entire outfit is from there ($35 wedges, $15 dress).
P.S. GIRL, I took this picture right after I ate a huge lunch so I am sucking in that tummy like WHOA.
… Working out has been a chore since Monday and my doctor has officially told me I have a sprain and I cannot pick up weights (which I’m pouting about, even though I couldn’t possibly grasp a weight if I tried). So I did leg machines yesterday (I think I’m so funny) …
and I did cardio this morning. Boring! But I want this wrist thing to heal ASAP so I’m trying to take care of it. And fun fact: they don’t make very fashionable wrist braces. I need to get some sequins or something to spice this baby up.
… My sister and I went to the Farmer’s Market last night and then had dinner on a patio. So fun! And OMG I FOUND SHAVED ICE!
I was very excited. I ate mine and half of my sisters. Yayyyyy. Oh, and Jenny got pretty flowers.
… I finally got to plan two events I’ve always wanted to do this year. The first was my Madison PaintBar event a few weeks ago and my next is on July 14 and it’s a boat cruise in Chicago. I’m up to 35 attendees which is awesome and I’m super excited! I had my review yesterday for work and I am doing really well. My boss understands that I’m struggling because there isn’t really anywhere for me to move up in this department, but he’s trying to at least get me the experience I need to move forward, which I appreciate.
… I have a new coffee obsession. It’s $3.41 (I just got one about 15 minutes ago, that’s why I know that) which is way better than my normal $4.50 drink at Starbs. I still need to cut it out, though.
It’s a grande cold brew with two pumps of sugar free caramel, two pumps of sugar free vanilla and two splenda. I know, I know. A lot of chemicals, but it’s like, 2 carbs (if you even track that) and it’s cheaper than my normal skinny caramel macchiato. And it’s really good! I don’t like the taste of coffee straight, so it’s sweet enough for me. I recommend it, even though I sound like a diva when I order it.
… I have a long day today – working 8-4:30 at the college and then 5-10 at the tennis courts, but I need to study for NASM anyway so I’m hoping I have time tonight at work. My weekend is looking pretty boring – I don’t have any plans for the 4th, plus my sister is going up north. 🙁 I’m sure I’ll study and watch a ton of Gossip Girl. And next week I’ll be taking a quick trip so I’m off Monday (for the 4th), off Tuesday/Wednesday for a trip which maybe I’ll tell you about later and then work Thursday and part of Friday before I leave for Milwaukee to see my loves, Saige and Heather. I’m so excited! Just gotta get through today and tomorrow of work! Off to start my day!
Do you have a Starbs drink?
Any other Maxxinistas out there? Where do you shop?
