Highlights from This Week

November 10, 2017 in About Me / College

Happy Friday guys!

This week was super chilly and the time change has been tough for me. Having it be dark at 4 pm is not something I enjoy. But regardless, there are some good things from the week of course. 🙂


I started my week off with a nice nature walk listening to my favorite music. Very peaceful and healing morning and I definitely needed that time to help ground myself before the upcoming week.


Went on a lunch date to Whole Foods with my gal pal Julie Monday. Enjoyed a salad and a really yummy smoothie. Loved catching up with her and getting off campus for a good meal!


Spent some time volunteering at the HOPE house Tuesday for the Best Buddies program. These gals are amazing. So kind hearted and full of love. Happy I got to spend an hour there on Tuesday with all those lovely humans.


Went to an awakening yoga class Wednesday morning and felt SO relaxed after. Perfect gentle movement to start my day and really felt so mindful throughout that whole practice. Love this studio and the owner!


Starbucks has HOLIDAY CUPS. Got myself a latte after yoga and the crisp morning + holiday cups + crisp air just made me feel all warm inside lol.


My best friend always makes me a happy bean. Love laughing with her and living with her. Very grateful. 🙂

Your turn! Share at least one highlight from your week with me. Have a lovely weekend!!

    Absolutely love recounting the highlights from the week, because it’s such a reminder of God’s goodness and faithfulness and mercy! It’s been so fun going on brisk morning walks this week because the air feels like a mix of fall/winter, and the dogs especially love it! <3

    This week I have felt more rested as Aubrey’s sleep training has taken a positive turn…FINALLY!! I agree on the time change…4pm darkness is a total let down from the warm sunny evenings of Summer!
    I’m excited about the holiday cups…have to get myself a latte soon!

    You have such a big heart Lyss. I love how much you enjoy the Best Buddies program. I am so excited holiday cups are back at Starbucks! 😀 I can’t wait to get a soy latte this weekend hehe. I had a nice week at work and even though it was freezing in MI the sun was out most days so that was nice! Have a wonderful weekend!!

    I’ve seen the holiday cups around town and although I don’t normally go to Starbucks, I kind of want one 🙂 The highlight of my week was seeing my family for dinner on Wednesday and going to my sister’s craft show this afternoon. It felt good to get out of Ithaca and do something different.

    Yay for holiday cups! That one looks cute too! I don’t even know if Starbucks here does holiday cups – but I always buy a new Christmas mug each year to add to my collection 😛
