Hello and happy almost weekend!
Ryan and I have plans to go tubing in the springs this weekend which makes me incredibly excited. I love a day on the water and haven’t been tubing in the springs since a camping trip with friends years ago. We are overdue!
Now it’s time to rock ‘n’ roll and kick things off with today’s Things I’m Loving Friday post. Number 35 coming at ya!
Things I’m Loving Friday
This is probably my all-time favorite tea… and has been for years! A former coworker gave me a bag to try one time and I’m so glad she did. I probably never would have bought this tea on my own because the flavor sounds rather bleh, but I adore it. One cup of this tea kicks off any day on the right note. It’s so soothing and minty and also makes a great afternoon tea!
While I continue to wait for my dance talent to surface, in the meantime I will enjoy watching ridiculously awesome dance routines like this one by The Company at the Vibe XIX dance competition earlier this year. I am thoroughly impressed! (P.S. To everyone out there who loves So You Think You Can Dance, now that Ryan and I don’t have TV, you must let me know if there are any dances we need to watch on YouTube this season!)
I blogged about this service a year and a half ago, but it really is terrific. Twice is a company that accepts gently used brand-name clothing and resells it on their website for a discounted price. You simply ship your clothes to them using one of their prepaid labels and then they make an offer on all or some of the items. You can accept the offer or, if you choose not to, you can pay $5 for return shipping or elect to have Twice donate the unwanted items to Goodwill for free. I just sent the above batch of clothes in yesterday!
A video for my fellow animal lovers! I hope this makes you smile!
After hearing the best things about this show, Ryan and I started watching it a couple of months ago. At first, I couldn’t handle it. It was too stressful for me to watch! I kept thinking people were going to be killed every second and watching it just made me anxious. I told Ryan it wasn’t my kind of show. Well, Ryan kept at it and when he’d start playing it on Netflix, I’d inevitably find myself next to him on the couch, watching the show out of one eye. Before I knew it, I was totally invested and we just reached the final season this week. It’s intense!
- This Elliptical Workout
Yesterday I just wasn’t feeling my workout. On days when I’m feeling particularly lazy at the gym, I like to hop on an elliptical with a magazine and zone out. Well, about five minutes into my time on the elliptical, I felt my energy kick in and decided to complete the above interval workout. It’s a great go-to workout for days when you want to sweat but aren’t in the mood to do anything high-impact.
