TGIF… no really, TG, TG, TG!

I really try not to be one of those people who constantly wishes away the weeks and just waits for the weekend. Key phrase, I try not to be. But this week was one that couldn't get over fast enough. The hours at my job felt like double, even triple some days. So I welcome you Friday, and your friends Saturday and Sunday too. I have missed you like a 90s kid misses her Tamagotchi. Sidenote- I found my old one at my parent's house last weekend. I truly might buy a battery for it... ya know, just to see if it works.

Summer is such an easy time to get caught up in fun and plans, and while I definitely love the swimming, the BBQs and the parties that seem to amp-up in the hot months? I need downtime with my man! Jared and I are looking forward to a fun weekend of whatever we darn well feel like doing! A nice mental vacation will be welcomed over the next couple of days. And because I try to find the positive, even in yucky weeks like this one, I wanted to link up with my girl Amanda for my Faves from this week!
Blog friends. Hi, Kristin! There is a lot I could say here about how awesome this gal is, but to avoid all the cliches I probably want to say... just know that I consider you a real friend, not just one of those 'weird internet people I met' ;) Thanks for always motivating me, inspiring me and for just getting me.

Gym time. Hitting the weights with Jared is becoming one of my favorite things to do! Most of the time I don't actually feel like lifting weights until we're actually there, but I'm getting better about that, too. I love having my own personal trainer (Jared) cheering me on, pushing me until my body feels like jell-o and celebrating every time I reach a milestone at the gym. Also? Still in love with my new shoes.

Saturday posts. I randomly posted about a few money-saving/making websites this past Saturday and the response was awesome! I just assumed no one read blogs on the weekends, but by pageviews and the amount of you who signed up using my referral links (thank you!) apparently there are some of you out there! I liked it so much I've got something planned for tomorrow, too.

Fun partnerships. Jill, the owner of Sugar Love Boutique, has become a friend of mine. We can share a love for clothes AND the Bengals. It's a beautiful friendship and I actually got to meet her in person last fall in Cincinnati. I'm excited about a fun giveaway I'm partnering with Jill on-- stay tuned next week!

Meeting my personal goals. I know we've still got 10 days left in June, but I must pat myself on the back. I've really made a lot of progress on all my monthly goals so far, and it feels good. I just feel like I'm in a groove this month and it's a good feeling to have!

What is everyone else happy about today? Any big weekends plans I should be jealous of? ;)

  2. I am soooo happy it is Friday and even happier that I am off this weekend for the ENTIRE weekend! This is the first time I have had a whole weekend away from work since like April. Super excited because my little is getting married tomorrow so the hubby and I will be heading out to Pittsburgh this afternoon after he gets out of work. Super exciting! Hope you enjoy your weekend of downtime with your husband! Weekends like that are ALWAYS the best!

  6. Keith and I use to work out together until he got this brillant idea to work out at his parents with Piyo and whatnot in the basement. I hate going over there to workout in the basement, its just so cramped so I go to the gym, he over there. One day we'll be back together!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I read somewhere this week that you can actually get a good bit of money for a Tamagotchi if it's in good condition... just sayin' :)

  11. I'm totally one of those people that starts counting down to the weekend as soon as Sunday night hits. I reallly need to work on that. I'm also super jealous that you still have your tamagotchi! My nanopet ended up in the trash after my mom ended up being the only one to take care of it haha

  14. Really ready for this weekend here.

    I do read blogs on weekends, but usually if I come across them on FB from my phone and I can't comment then.

    I can't wait to see what giveaway you have in store.

  20. Omg! Blast from the past - I was obsessed with Tomagatchi's, I think I had 3 of them! Haha I would love to see if they still worked. Love your tennis shoes - I'm in need of new ones and the purple is definitely calling my name!
