Is it just me or did this weekend fly by?! I’m not sure why this weekend seemed to fly by more than others, but it definitely feels like it should only be Saturday. I’m not complaining, though, because the heat wave is almost over and we all know Monday-Friday mornings are marvelous for me…
You’ll know what I’ll be doing this morning. Aside from this, my parents were gone all last week (which I didn’t mention for safety purposes, obviously) and they brought me back some Turks coffee, a t-shirt, bracelets, and some nail polish which changes color in the sun. Awesome! I missed my mom so much it makes me realize our relationship has changed a lot.
I got a new nail China glaze nail polish from Ulta, but it’s definitely not my favorite. I’m not sure if the formula is different but it’s definitely not as great as my barbie nails!
Elmo and I got haircuts, finally. It’s been probably over 8 months since my last haircut and I needed it. I went with the intention of just a trim but managed to my hairstylist to cut more off. Baby steps. It feels so much better!
Since I was left to fend for myself last week, I was walking so much more and yes, I did try to run a little bit. I’m loving being able to walk more but I just hope it stays this way. Either way, just getting out in the morning to walk with Elmo for about 30 minutes is awesome. I’m savoring every second.
Did I mention I love cookies? The blizzard was a once and done craving but oh man, fresh baked cookies from a bakery?! Totally different story. #addicted
My brother and his girlfriend got me this on their vacation to Virginia beach, too! The little gem on the inside says “Elmo” and “Mommy”. Yes, I am mommy.
Overall, this week was really good and kind of a detox. Sometimes I believe times to yourself let you figure things out and this week apart from my parents allowed me to test how much I can do and listen to myself. There are times I wonder if I’m not doing enough in fear of making something worse, but it’s a chance I have to take I guess. Life is about learning and I’m definitely learning a lot lately.
What’s something great from your weekend?
Favorite kind of cookie?
I love a fresh gooey chocolate chip cookie with walnuts. YUM.
