Happy happy Friday!  

This Friday is even more exciting than usually because I took Monday off from work so hello three day weekend!  🙂

Blogging has been a real struggle for me lately.  I use a computer 8+ hours at work and I’ve also been doing a part-time online position in the evenings since the beginning of July.  By the time I’m finished with everything, usually the last thing I want to do is spend even more time on my computer.  Also, the lack of sleep since mid-July has really brought me down.  The only thing getting me through the day is caffeine and more caffeine.  The stress of not sleeping is making me crave all the bad things & getting lazy with cooking.  NOT GOOD.  I’m dying… I need sleep!  

This past weekend, I painted the sides of the cabinets that frame our sink area + the opening between our sink & breakfast nook because we bought a new towel holder.  When we bought the house, there was this really cheap & flimsy towel holder that always broke off.  It took us a YEAR to replace it.  When we took the old one off, it took the paint with it.  We picked up a small sample of white paint which ended up being a few shades lighter than the cabinets…. woops.  I’m guessing that the cabinets used to be bright white & they’ve just faded over the years.  

Painting the rest of the cabinets to match may be my next project.  I’ve never painted cabinets before so…. it could be interesting!

These last two-ish months, I’ve started running at the gym on the days I don’t have boot camp.  I know, I don’t know what is wrong with me.  Honestly, I read that running is a good way to slim muscular thighs which is an issue I’m having these days.  Granted, I run about a mile before I’m spent so it’s not like I’m running long distances or anything.  I’m almost 30 years old & have never ran more than a mile in my life so it’s going to take me awhile to go any further.  The crazy thing is that I kind of like it!  I blast some Metallica or Black Sabbath and just focus on running.  It’s been a good stress reliever lately so I think it’s something I’m going to continue.  Even if it doesn’t shrink my thighs, maybe it will help with my endurance for Trek Up The Tower in February.  😉  

I think I am going to hit up Sephora this weekend as I still have a gift card that I won from a giveaway awhile back.  I’m pretty much at the end of my bottle of Revlon foundation & thinking about getting a high end foundation this time.  I’m in need of some suggestions!  I’ve always wanted to try Urban Decay Naked Skin — is it worth it?  Or what else would be good for dry skin and to hide pores?

We don’t have much planned for this weekend other than hopefully sleeping & catching up on some much needed cleaning… again.  On Monday, we are road tripping about an hour & a half south to check out the eclipse!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Linking up with Andrea, Erika, Narci, Amanda, and April!
