Things That Made Me Smile This Week 3/24/17

March 24, 2017 in About Me / College

It’s Fridayy!! I hope you have all had a good week so far. The next few weeks are going to be busy for me but I’m embracing it and going with the ebb and flow of life!

I definitely want to catch up on more of y’alls posts this week, so I can’t wait to read some blogs this weekend. 🙂

I love looking back at the week and finding the little or big things that put a smile on my face.

-> Getting my little Buddha friend in the mail.


-> A great workout on Tuesday. Hit a new squat PR!

-> The fact that the dining hall had SPAGHETTI SQUASH. Yeah, I know right???!! How amazing.

-> Talking with my friend Emily for a podcast. So good chatting with her!

-> Catching up with my dad and having a nice conversation with him. 🙂

-> Getting breakfast with my dear friend Rach and catching up with her.

-> Spending time with the group I went on my service trip with.

-> Doing real life things and looking for jobs and such.

-> Using my essential oils every night and stocking up on my lavender one. Essential oils help with me a whole bunch of stuff. If you are in search of some, check them out here! Love this site. 🙂

-> Spending time with my best friend Karyn. She makes my days SO much better.


-> Getting new clothes in the mail. Athleta and American Eagle had a sale and ya girl had to get on that.

    One thing that made me smile was Adele at her concert. I don’t know if you have ever seen her live, but she is hilarious! There was a beetle on stage and she started freaking out about it 😛

    One thing that made me smile this week: I got interviewed for the university newspaper. I’m now famous, clearly.
    Nice job on the looking for jobs. That takes guts.
    Glad you got to spend time with your dad and friends. 🙂

    Hmmm… So i’ve never actually shopped at Athleta or American Eagle; or at least I don’t think I have? Maybe I forgot that I did. 😀 And you totally made me smile on Tuesday too; I just smiled and nodded my head and thanked God so much for that encouragement after a really tough week the week before. You are a sweet friend.

    Another thing that made me smile constantly this week was our dogs. Those fluffy animals just bring the biggest grins to my face.

    Always fun to look back on what made you smile during the week 🙂 one thing that made me smile was getting a job offer at a school for after graduation! It was definitely the highlight of my week!
    I LOVE the clothes at Athletica but the price always drives me away… I’ll have to check if that sale is still going on! I’d love to see what you got!

    I’m glad you had a good week. One thing that made me smile was making dinner with my friend. Twas pan fried cod from Blue Apron, and it was lovely.

    I loveeeee essential oils! I always use a relaxing blend at night to help me sleep better and it’s amazing!

    This week what made me smile was realising just how incredibly my business has grown – and how much I’ve grown as a business woman! I had a moment were I was like “damn girl, you’re a BOSS LADAAAY” (which is so not me because I’m usually like psh… I am not that fab) and it was actually really cool to realise that.
