    What’s the new podcast? I love listening to Dave Ramsey’s podcast Money Talks. It’s helped me a lot financially. I also like Jess Lively’s podcast.

    What a fun post! I’ve been in bed with a migraine for 2 days so I’ll be happy when that’s gone. Other than that my flowers from VDay are still alive and kicking, I have coffee, & Ghirardelli squares. This makes me a happy girl. Happy Friday!

    I’m super jealous of your extra day off…mostly because I had a really long, busy week but I’m so excited for the weekend and a fun little work trip next week which I’m very much looking forward to!

    That’s right, I had forgotten Mina hurt her back. How’s she doing? Chiro sessions helping? I know a few people that take their pets there and they notice a difference, or I should say, an improvement.

    Stay warm and dry this weekend (we’re getting a bit of a mild weekend, so I suspect as I house sit, my mom’s side yard is going to be mucky as hell), and hopefully Mina can still retain her lovely, freshly groomed smell that I love so much. Must take the boys in soon, they’re hair is getting out of control, especially Baxter’s.

    Have a great weekend hun! xo

    I forgot that little one was a dog and not a baby until I read about the groomer πŸ™‚ I want to hear more about these dance workouts! I love to dance and it’s the best way to get a work out for sure.

    I love reflecting on happy moments! I used to keep a gratitude journal and write down 3 things that made me happy each day – it can do wonders on keeping your perspective positive! Sounds like you had some really great moments this week, I’d say having my work published as a guest piece on a popular blog was one of my favorite moments from the week. πŸ™‚

    That extra day off this week was so incredibly nice – especially coming back from vacation and having time to prepare for the week.

    All of those things seem so happy! I’m normally an Office Manager, but today I had the privilege to work on my boss’s farm! I had such a fun time working with the cattle and enjoyed the beautiful weather so much!

    Yay for happy weeks! I am so grateful for my husband and parents πŸ™‚ I had a baby 3 weeks ago and they have been SO supportive and helpful with taking my older daughter to school and keeping her company. Also grateful I was FINALLY able to get out of the house for an hour so naturally I went to Target haha!

    A week of dance workouts?! Ummm that is totally my JAM! Dancing is the best workout, and it doesn’t even feel the typical ‘workout’!
