Happy Tuesday {04.22.2014}

I hope you all had a most wonderful week, weekend and a great Easter! I know I sure did! I wanted to catch you up on a few little things I've been up to lately since I was so MIA last week. I usually post on Friday's because I feel like that's a good day to recap the week, but I was so busy last week, personally AND at work, I just didn't get enough time.

I had to get to Target to get a wedding gift and a baby shower gift, which turned into about 2 hours of roaming the aisles because I hadn't been there in literally a month and a half. Well, since Lent had started anyways. I just couldn't let myself go in there because I was so tempted to buy something for myself. Target has a certain power over me that I just can't get away from. Does that happen to anyone else? Or just me? Well, I got everything I needed and made it out of there without anything for myself. Yay! By the end Hailey was just so done, so I pulled out the iPad for her to watch. I love that thing so much.

Wednesday night I had these plans to run errands and get some stuff done, but the weather did not cooperate and we ended up just going home because we were getting snow. And A LOT of it. My Dad sent me this funny video. If you have seen Frozen or even heard any of the songs, then you will get it. If you haven't seen Frozen, shame on you. He knows Hailey and I are obsessed with it, so it was very fitting.



I think we were and are pretty much over the snow.

I ended up taking a half day. Mostly because I had an early afternoon Dr appointment and didn't feel like going back to work. Long story short...watch out TMI...I haven't been getting my period, or even been regular for that matter in quite sometime, so I started a new BC over the weekend. We will see how it goes. Anyone else out there use the Nuva ring? It's different, but my AWESOME Dr gave me 3 months worth to try it and if I like it then she will call in a prescription. If I end up hating it and/or I am still not getting IT, then we will have to discuss things further. I've only ever been on the pill, so this is a little nerve racking to try something new. I knew I wasn't pregnant or anything, but she still made me pee in a cup. Go figure.

So what did I do with the rest of my afternoon? I went and got my first mani/pedi of the season.


I then proceeded to go shopping. I had pretty much decided the night before after looking through my closet that I didn't have ANYTHING for this wedding. So after getting my nails and toes done, I popped into Kohl's and tried on about 10 different dresses. Literally. Well, that turned into me buying 3 dresses and a pair of sandals. (2 of the dresses I will be taking back.) So even though I made this pact for Lent, I am still proud of myself overall.


I ended up going with the Maxi. I paired it with a black cardigan and these LC black flat sandals. It was such a comfortable outfit and I will be able to wear the maxi all summer long. I have another wedding in July in Iowa, so I am thinking of wearing it there, too.


I picked Hailey up from school, we got her hair cut and then grabbed some dinner before heading home. I had to pack her and me for the overnight sleepover the next night.

I was pleasantly surprised when I came into work that morning that my birthday present had come the day before.


Isn't she lovely? I got 4 links taken out and was so excited to immediately start wearing it.


Katie picked me up early from work, we headed to the hotel to check in, drop off our bags and meet friends to head to the wedding together. I plan to do more of a detailed post about it with a slideshow of pictures, but oh what a great night it was.

I woke up at 8am that morning in the hotel a little hungover. Ok, maybe more than a little. It took me awhile to recoup, but I made it. I went to my cousin's baby shower that afternoon with some family and headed home afterwards. I was so tired that night I went to bed SO early!

Easter was pretty low key. We went over to my MIL's house with some family for lunch and then we got some stuff done around the house and we played outside A LOT. It was 70+ degrees and was literally HOT.


It's been such a great, but busy week. I can't wait to get back to some normalcy AND back to the gym. Mollie was on vacation last week, so I didn't make it at all, but I'm back this week! Let's do it!

How was your week/weekend?
