Good morning (or afternoon/evening depending on when you are seeing this)! It's Friday and I couldn't be happier! Anyone else with me?? Tomorrow is a day which has been much anticipated. A few days ago I mentioned my friend Heather, whose also our lovely Friday favorites host had asked me to run a 5k with her this weekend. I'm beyond excited! Continuing with excitement...here's this week's faves!
--Shopping For Neon
The 5k we are participating in tomorrow is called Neon Dash - Live Bright Tour. The run itself is actually ran at night and we are sprayed with neon paint throughout. How cool is that?? But of course, there was a need to go out and look for all things neon too! Yesterday I went to 5 Below (have you heard of it before?) to see what I could find for us accessory wise. It was definitely a successful trip!
• nail polish
• sports bra for under white tank top
…and even neon playing cards for any downtime we may have!
Things not pictured yet plan to have:
• long socks
• glow necklaces/bracelets
On Monday my boyfriend and I went for a 10.6 mile bike ride. The weather was perfect and the fresh air felt amazing. About 4 miles of the ride consisted of dirt road accompanied by lots and lots of pot holes. Dodging them became a game! However, let's just say that if there was a point system I would have lost big time. I have the sore tush to attest! LOL. It was all in all peaceful except for that moment when we were almost attacked by a dog. He was not thrilled to have us biking by. After about 15 seconds, which seemed more like 5 minutes he retreated back to the house and we were on with our journey. My favorite part was our halfway ice cream stop! Such a blast. :)
P.S. Billy's shorts are not really that short…he was trying to be like me! #goofball
Over the weekend I got a little…ehh...okay, okay I got lobster status sunburnt. This resulted in aloe vera being a close friend of mine. Luckily we had various choices available in the bathroom cupboard! My go-to is the aloe lotion (pictured middle). I am not a fan on the sticky/slimy feeling of the cooling gel (pictured right). The blue bottle on the left is an after burn treatment by mark., which is made by Avon. I used this one for my face because I figured being made by a make-up company it would be less likely to break me out. I am happy to report it did not! Sadly, it appears this product is no longer made as I could not find it anywhere on the website.
Popcorn is not only a Friday favorite, but it is a daily favorite. If I could eat a bag of it everyday I would. For as long as I can remember popcorn has held a special place in my heart! When I went to make some on Tuesday night I discovered a couple seasonings. I have no idea how I was unaware they existed in our household. Maybe it was better I didn't know! I still need to try the ranch flavoring, although the nacho cheddar was a winner. When at the theatre I always gravitate to the caramel flavor if available. Sooo good! I also really want to try the cheesy jalapeño and garlic parmesan.
This week I received my diploma in the mail! For graduation my parents got me the beautiful frame you see below to display and keep it safe. I absolutely love how it looks. It will be hung with pride.
