Hey there! Has everyone taken advantage of their free donut today? I don’t think there are any Dunkin’ Donuts on my way home or anything, so I probably won’t have mine today, but if there’s a DD near you, go take advantage of your free sugary treat! Me? I’ll just stick to the free ice cream stocked in the freezer at work. Heck yes for summer ice cream at work! This year they even have 100 calorie ice cream sandwiches so I don’t feel too guilty indulging ;) Win!
Alright so it’s finally Friday (this week has felt both super slow and somewhat fast to me at times, if that makes any sense) so let’s go over some of the things I was loving this week!
On Thursday I celebrated my two year anniversary at my job! Hooray!!! I also have The Best Manager Ever who brought a whole bunch of mini cupcakes by my desk to surprise me. Isn’t she the sweetest??
I wound up eating a graham cracker one and the red velvet one before sharing the rest with my coworkers. Crumbs just so happens to be my favorite cupcake place (it’s better than Georgetown Cupcake, in my opinion!) so I was thrilled. What a nice surprise!!
Favorite Workout Outfit
When Fabio and I ran our half marathon a few weeks ago, my grandfather was kind enough to pick up our bibs and packets for us a few days before the race so we could avoid lines on race day (what a nice gesture, right?). Anyway, due to a mix up at the registration table, I got a t-shirt for the 5K and 10K instead of the half marathon t-shirt.
Although I was a little bummed about the mix-up, I didn’t think it was worth bothering the race coordinators to get it switched so I just brushed it off. Then last week I got an email from the organizers of the race asking if anyone needed a race t-shirt. On a whim, I decided to email them telling them that I got the wrong shirt to see if they had any of the half marathon tees left in my size. Lucky for me, they did!
They were super friendly and sent me the correct shirt practically overnight. How awesome!
Now I finally have my half marathon t-shirt and happily wore it for a run on Wednesday. Even though it was just a little thing that I thought I didn’t care about, having the shirt made me pretty happy
So, remember how I didn’t go to the beach this year for Memorial Day Weekend with my friends because 1) my grandfather was getting out of the hospital and 2) Fabio’s whole family was going to be in town and they wanted to celebrate?
Well, Fabio knew how much this meant to me and he knew how much I was giving up to be there with his family, so he surprised me by sending me thank you flowers to my office. He is just the sweetest.
This still makes me so happy when I think about it. Fabio is just so good to me
Favorite After Work Activity
This past Wednesday was our last day of regular season kickball on the National Mall. While we still have playoff games next week, I feel like our season really came to an end this week. Kickball has been such a good experience for me and I’m so glad I went a little outside of my comfort zone and signed up.
I don’t know why, but on weeknights I don’t usually like to do anything too crazy. I like my routine of coming home, working out, and making dinner, so when I signed up for kickball with a bunch of my friends (and also a lot of people I didn’t know) I was definitely stepping outside of my comfort zone.
There’s also the fact that I am absolutely terrible at organized group sports and had anxiety every time the ball came near me. Yep, that happened. During this week’s game though, I had some pretty great kicks (for me) and I could see how much I improved since the beginning of the season. Woohoo!
It’s been such a fun season and I am going to be really sad when it’s over. Wahhh.
Favorite Pictures of Jack
Us with our tongues out.
And Jack being silly.
I picture him saying, “Haaaaayy gurl”
Or something like that, lol.
Alright guys, that’s all I have time for today! I hope you all have a great weekend and if you live on the East Coast, let’s hope this rain clears out, huh?
Question of the day: What made you smile this week?
