Happy Friday!!! I think it may be time to abandon the roman numerals I usually use to designate these posts since “Things I’m Loving Friday XXX” might give some people the wrong idea. Sexyyy!
How are you guys doing today!? We have lots of activities on the agenda this weekend, so I’m more than ready to kick off the fun. But first, let’s hop to it with your usual Things I’m Loving Friday post where I share some of the things I’m loving this week!
As always, please feel free to share something that’s making you smile in the comments section. I always love reading about the things you’re loving lately!
Things I’m Loving
- Gopher Tortoise Sightings
On nearly every walk Ryan and I have taken with Sadie this week, we’ve seen a gopher tortoise or two. A gopher tortoise sighting is always exciting since they’re a protected species and on an early evening hike on Wednesday, we stumbled upon a baby (pictured above)! Sadie thinks gopher tortoises are quite boring, but Ryan and I think they’re awesome and love watching them create their underground burrows.
Hilarious. And so, so true.
- Healthy Kids Day Donations
Tomorrow is Healthy Kids Day at my gym and I am so grateful for the incredibly generous donations we have received for this special event. I reached out to a bunch of the companies I have worked with before (or those whose products I love!) and was floored by the enthusiastic responses I received. I cannot wait to drop everything off this afternoon and see everyone’s excitement. Thank you so, so much to Blue Diamond, Nature Box, Kashi, Ayala Herbal Water, General Mills and Stonyfield for your generosity!
- (Faux) Horn Watches
I’m not sure why it took me so long to purchase a (faux) horn watch, but I’m glad I finally bit the bullet and bought one when I saw a great deal for a Kenneth Jay Lane watch ($57!) on RueLaLa a few weeks ago. My sister has been wearing the horn watch Ryan and I gave her for her college graduation for years and I love the casual look of the watch and the way it is a little more subdued than a flashy gold watch. I’ve been wearing my new watch non-stop and like the way it can be dressed up or dressed down. More gorgeous horn watches: Ann Klein watch, Michael Kors watch
- My Birthday Weekend
My birthday is this Sunday! Truth be told, I don’t really feel like it’s my birthday, but I have a feeling I’ll get into the spirit a little more once the weekend festivities begin. Ryan has a birthday date planned for tonight and we’re going to a BBQ/bonfire party at my friend Heather’s on Saturday night! Plus, my friend Laurel and her husband are spending the night with us on Saturday, so there’s lots to look forward to this weekend! (Oh, and the above picture was from my birthday two years ago. An absolutely awesome birthday on a cruise ship with some of my best friends!)
I first tried these eye makeup remover pads in Sarasota last week and it was love at first swipe! My friend Carrie packed them in her toiletry bag and let me use them during our mini vacation. I was so impressed with the way they easily removed my waterproof mascara. They’re also incredibly gentle and I knew I needed to pick some up for myself ASAP after I said goodbye to Carrie. I am loving them!
