5 Things That Made Life Awesome This Week

Hello! I’m still in San Francisco. But it’s almost midnight and I’m exhausted from everything. Every.thing. Between getting here from FL and not being home for a week and all the events we had in SF – I need to sleep.

But, I also need to tell you about the 5 things that made my life awesome this week! It’s important!! I wouldn’t be able to sleep knowing I didn’t share these gems… (and/or I’m all hopped up on adrenaline and white wine, either way).

5 Things Making Life Awesome This Week:

1. Running while traveling. Travel through life on foot – It’s the best way to see a place.

I started my day with 7 miles for a good photo opp. Too bad I had to ruin it with my running pose…

2. Two words – Dry Bar.

I had my first Dry Bar experience today and it was eye opening. Have you done this yet? Someone washes, dries and styles your hair while you watch Mean Girls (at least that what was on when I was there). Yes.

The wind was trying to kill it here, but I managed to keep it together for an hour.

3. Travel size hummus and watermelon Hint water. Yes and yes.

Actually, all the snacks at the StitchFix office made my day! Um, Sriracha.

4. Fitbit in a cute color! I am loving the heck out of my new red Fitbit. I’ve had more than one model in the past, but never a colored one!

5. Cupcakes with a runner or running shoes on them. Whoever made these knows their audience. Me.

Which would you pick? Runner or Running Shoe?

(Both is totally an option.)

Question: What is one of your favorite things this week?

    I LOVE DryBar and DreamDry in NYC! I used to go anytime before big events and miss it here in Geneva where the concept definitely DOES NOT exist.

    Glad you guys had fun!

    My friend worked at dry bar here in NYC. I figured with my kinky curls they would have a hard time and then I would walk outside in the humidity and that would be that so I haven’t gone.

    Love the way your hair turned out. And those cupcakes!!! I would go with the runner stick figure.

    My favorite thing this week is this fiber one cinnamon raisin bread I bought. I have it every morning with peanut butter. Delish.

    Those cupcakes are so adorable! My favorite thing(s) this week is long walks and splash parks. Nothing better in this heat then going for a great 3 mile walk and then taking the kiddo to the splash park so he can play and I can cool down!!

    My favorite things this week (and last week) are the sun coming up at 5:45 a.m. and listening to Harry Potter audiobooks on my runs. Even though I’ve read each one at least three times already, they’re still my favorite :)

    Gorgeous ‘do! I would love to visit San Francisco. Unfortunately, my only look into SF is watching copious amounts of “Full House” as a kid. Does everyone ride around in a red convertible?

    My favorite thing this week would be my perfect pineapple I purchased on Sunday. I have one more slice left to polish it off, but I did a very good job of picking out my fruit this week. Win!

    The runner is cute, but that Tiffany blue gets me every time! I need a “Dry Bar” in my life ASAP, that sounds amazing!! Perfect for events and whatnot, if you are too lazy or uncoordinated (as I am) to do my own hair :)

    That is a good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very accurate information… Thanks for sharing this
    one. A must read post!

    I actually just got a Fitbit! Its my first one! And it is my first piece like it. I am so excited about using. There is a dry bar in my town, but I had never heard of it before. I may have to try it out!
