This week has been something else & I am definitely in need of a break. Work has been especially crazy the last few days and I can’t remember a time where I’ve ever been so busy. As in, my phone is ringing off the hook from clients & I have multiple voicemails while I’m on the phone or away from my desk for a quick break. Crossing my fingers that today is a little slower and I’m actually able to get some work done. I’ve been so exhausted thanks to miss Sophie wanting to stay up all night & pace the entire house while carrying her toys everywhere. By the time 5:00 rolled around, the last thing I wanted to do was go to the gym so I only went twice this past week which I haven’t done in months.
Anywho, enough rambling. Let’s get on to some favorites from this week!
I love love love GroopDealz! I ordered these shoes on Sunday evening and they arrived by Thursday! I don’t think I’ve ever had anything arrive within a few days whenever I’ve purchased something from there before. I don’t have any “dressy” sandals for summer so when I saw these, I had to get them! I’m awful when it comes to heels and always tend to trip or fall over so I haven’t been wanting anything super high (like my Target ones that are just ridiculous to walk in).
Wednesday was rough. Sophie was up most of the night & then we had a super loud thunderstorm around 5:30am. I should have called in & took a mental health day but I trudged through an entire day of work. By lunch, I needed some more caffeine. Enter: Monster Ultra Violet. This stuff tastes like grape soda! I love most of their flavors but I think this one is the best by far.
I mentioned that I was trying to cut back on dairy in a previous post but as of right now, I’ve given it up entirely. I kind of failed last weekend though when I bought some cheese slices thinking they were dairy free when in fact they were only lactose free… whoops. I have yet to try the actual dairy free cheese – can anyone tell me if it’s good? Like worth the $5+ for 10 slices, haha. I mainly want to see if I feel a little better during the day as I’ve just been feeling so blah lately + I realized that almost every single meal I have has some sort of dairy product in it. My workouts have felt like they’ve been lagging because of it. I think it’s still a little too soon to tell if it’s making any sort of difference but I’ll be checking back at the end of the month!
Lastly, Sophie is finally going to her forever home tomorrow! After nearly six months of fostering, I can’t believe the day is finally here. It’s truly bittersweet. The lady that has adopted her lives in Kansas City and has a friend here in Omaha that is offering to take her down there tomorrow. I know I’m going to cry when we drop her off but I know she’s going to a good home. The lady is home most of the day whereas we have always been gone plus she already has another dog that can kind of show Sophie the ropes. Oh man, I better stop talking about this because I’m starting to tear up already!
We don’t have too much planned for this weekend. Tomorrow might be a little emotional but we’ll be busy celebrating Mother’s Day in the evening & then on Sunday afternoon. Other than that, let’s hope for a relaxing weekend! Have a great Friday everyone!
