I was up bright and early this morning (as usual) and got in an 8 mile run before I had to go for my follow up with the podiatrist after my foot injury last month. Thankfully I don’t have to go back and see him and he is on board with my PT’s change of training plan, (I’ll go through more of that later next week)!
I am even more excited that it is Friday because tonight I am going to see Lady Antebellum (with Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves) at the TD Garden in Boston tonight with my BFF!
I’m a huge Lady A fan and saw them last summer in NH with a bunch of friends and they put on an incredible show, so I was SO excited to be able to see them again in Boston. Clearly, this will hold the current #1 spot on my “Things I’m Loving” list this week, but here are some other things I’m loving!
I’ve been listening to this cd via Spotify a few times a week for the past 3 or so months. I LOVE this cd and after a tough meeting or when I need a few minutes to decompress, I love to turn it on and just refocus. While I like every single song on the cd, my current fav is “Thank You.” If you are a country music lover, give them a try and let me know what you think!
When I run long in the mornings, that means I have less time to get ready before heading to work (ie-no blow drying my hair.) I have been using this product and it is absolutely amazing. I squeeze a small amount and work it through my hair and scrunch it and it makes my hair nice and curly, while also super soft and crunch free and it holds the curl all day long, what more can you ask for? I really don’t like gels that make you hair look wet, hard and crunchy. I was a bit skeptical about it leaving my hair soft and crunch free, but it totally does.
I’ve never been a big fan of hand cream, I don’t like the feeling of much on my hands or feet (that includes socks.) I really dislike that greasy feeling every other cream I have tried in the past. However, I got this in my Birchbox and threw it in my work bag to leave in my office. It’s been so bitterly cold lately that my hands have been really dry so I have been using this a lot in the past week and I’m surprised at how much I like it. It leaves my hands smooth and moisturized without a greasy feeling and smells nice to boot!
A friend of mine highly recommended that I watch Luther. We like most of the same shows so I had a feeling I would like this one too. I added it to my Netflix queue a few weeks ago and finally sat down to watch it a little while back and got hooked. I have been watching it every opportunity I can, especially while running. I absolutely fell in love with Idris Elba’s character Luther. It’s a pretty dark psychological crime drama, but I just can’t stop watching it. If these kinds of shows appeal to you, I highly recommend giving it a try.
Alright folks….have a wonderful week and do something this weekend that makes you happy!
