What's Up, Weekend? March 31st, 2017


I made it to Friday!! Not sure how I did it but I did(pat on the back). I will say that even though my week started pretty shitty it ended up being a good one. Here is my list of the 10 things that made me happy this week.

1.Having probably the best conversation I've ever had with Mr. J.Sorry for the sap but I think I love him even more(if that is possible).


2. Kids eat Free Tuesday's at our local eatery.


3. Forgetting my lunch at home but then remembering that I stock my work fridge and have everything to make a cobb salad. BONUS


4. I'm looking forward to tomorrow. My family and I are taking a wood working class in beautiful Stillwater, Minnesota and then having lunch at The Freight House

5. Coffee

6. Asking Jake how his day was and every day this week he answers with "It was AWESOME". I love that he loves school. He definitely didn't get that from me.

7. Down another 2 lbs. 10.6 total. Only 16 more to go.

8. I know that I talk about my obsession with lipstick A LOT!! I'm sorry but I will tell you that lipstick makes me happy. These three gems sit at my desk and every morning when I get to work I pick the one that matches my mood. Today I am wearing CRAVE. Because I am craving SUGAR. Which I haven't had in 5 WEEKS!!


9. Piggy backing on number 8. I am pretty stoked at my willpower to cut out sugar. It hasn't been easy but it is worth it.

10. Making my list for the second week in a row. The Peaceful Posse.

Oh I forgot to mention.. Today I am paying my LAST rent check!! Moving in with Mr. J and his house is paid off. Such a freeing feeling!!

Can I just say how happy it makes me to see you in this group? It is YOURS as much as it is mine, and it's just a wonderful thing to be a part of and watch grow <3 So thank you :)

Also I'm glad to hear that the week ended on a positive note. And your son loves school! That's a wonderful thing :) PS: I don't think I've heard of your lipstick obsession before, but keep sharing because where makeup is concerned, I am completely at a loss, lol.

Finally--GO YOU! That is incredible that you are doing so well with your weight loss!!! I actually noticed this week that my pants are just not fitting me anymore and I need to seriously up my game, too. Cutting sugar is something I need to do, too. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me today, momma :)

Hope you have a great weekend!! XOXO

I am so happy to hear that Jake loves school!! And I love that you had a great convo with Mr. J, those are so good to have! I'm making a list of all the places kids eat free, I think I saw on Insta that was at Big Louie's? I'll have to add it to my list! Way to go on the weight loss! Proud of you! Have a great weekend sweets!

Cutting out sugar?! Good for you! I cut out dairy, so maybe I should try cutting back on sugar too! Also coffee makes me happy 24/7!

Congratulations! Sounds like you had a great week...weight loss, cutting out sugar, and moving in...woo hoo! I also love when my boys have fun with school. I'm not sure if any of them really love it, but I hope they at least like it most of the time. Happy weekend!

Kudos to you on cutting out sugar! My husband and I did that last summer and it's been awesome. Now I find that some things are too sugary so your body will totally adjust. Also, coffee always makes me happy too!

Chrissy said...

Congratulations on your weight loss- that is amazing!
And how wonderful that your son loves going to school so much!
No more rent checks?! Wow, that is amazing!
I love lipstick as well, especially when they're from MAC, so I don't mind reading about your obsession at all!
I love being a part of The Peaceful Posse as well and seeing our group grow! It's just so much fun!!

Happy weekend, hope it'll be amazing!

It is really hard to give up sugar, but SO worth it once you do!! We did it a while back, and then found it got quite hard to eat foods with sugar in them because suddenly you could taste it in things. So weird!

Kimberly!! Sorry girl, I was working all weekend and I have to catch up on all the link up posts. :)
Every single thing on your list is AWESOME. :) Hurray for paying your last EVER rent cheque!!!

I'm feeling so swamped with work and life but when o think of our group, it brings me such joy and I'm so proud to be a part of something so incredibly uplifting and positive.

You moved this weekend, didn't you?

Have a great week hun. ;) xoxox
