Weekly lessons.

Happy mid-week, friends. I am so thankful to be halfway through the work week. Although we DO have a wedding this weekend, we're excited for it! First time linking up with these cuties - Lex and Mattie - for their "weekly lessons" link up, and I'm pretty excited! Here we go with some lessons I've learned this week...

If you treat your body right, you won't feel like garbage. Hmm, who would've thought?! Not stuffing your face with pizza and mountain dew, actually being active nearly every day, and getting enough sleep would make you feel like a brand new person.

The closer you get to vacation...the easier it is to keep eating better (but the harder it is to focus on work, and yeah we don't even leave until the end of October, but its kind of all I can think about).

The more you wish for Fall, the longer it will take to arrive. Oh and when you only have 1 more upcoming weekend free until the end of October, you make the MOST OF IT and (hopefully) plan an all-things-Fall day with your husband. Caleb? You in???

Always stop by Kroger during a remodel, and you will find lots on clearance. Like bento-boxes for lunch at 1/3 of the price, or an 8 pack of Sharpies for $2...or both, because buying both is always necessary.

Sometimes, a simple G-chat can make your day. I'm talking to you, Er! XO

Don't play Caleb in Words with Friends. He will always win. It doesn't make sense.

When you're trying to eat healthier, stay away from Pinterest. Enough said, really. French Toast Bake? Are you kidding me?

If you agree to make copies for someone at work once, they will ask you and only you to make their copies for life. Sure, I'm the receptionist now, but really? Some people have no common courtesy. I really do have better things to be doing... well, sometimes.

On the flip side, if you're super nice to other co workers, they will bring you fresh produce from their garden.  Zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, you name it! It's been nice having it on hand lately.

Hope everyone has a great day!!


  1. Oh you can't pass up deals like that, because you can always find use of Sharpies, etc! :)

  2. All I can think of now is that french toast bake.

  3. Ooooh, French toast bake....yum. yum. yum. But no, no, no ;) Back to more water and veggies...

    I hope the do ALL the fall things this weekend! All of them.

  4. Thanks for linking up with us! It is pretty crazy how big of a difference it makes when you're eating healthy and exercising. Whenever we cheat too much and then get back to eating right it feels so good. An all things fall days sounds like perfection! That's annoying about the copies, but at least you get rewarded with produce! Also I'm staring at that French toast picture as a type this and I need to stop. Haha!

  5. Pinterest really is horrible when you are trying to eat better! It is amazing the difference you feel when you are eating better and exercising more.

  6. I love this link-up idea! So cute! And yeah Pinterest is so bad when you're wanting to eat healthy haha!

  7. Yes to treating your body right - so true! Sounds like you have a fun vacation coming up! Where did you guys decide to go?

  9. Work is so hard leading up to vacation!! Enjoy that fresh produce, yum!

  10. Love all of these! YES to clearance items when the grocery store is remodeling and fresh veggies from the garden sound amazing. I can’t believe fall is almost here! You’re right… the more excited, the longer it takes for those leaves to change colors. I hope you have a great rest of your week!
