I have my last long run this weekend (10 miles – 12 miles, I’ll see how I’m feeling) before heading to the Disneyland Half Marathon with my mom next weekend. I can’t wait for us to add another medal to our collections! Actually, we will get two medals because we will be completing our Coast-to-Coast Challenge. Woohoo!
Here are some of my favorite things from the past week:
1. Celebrating my Disney College Program’s one year anniversary! If you missed my post, be sure to read it. One of my roommates posted this adorable picture on Facebook, and I love it. This was our very first picture together. Thanks, Lori!
2. S’mores Coffee. I have been looking for s’mores coffee for over a year, and I finally found it at Target. S’mores coffee must be an Archer Farms’ summer blend since it’s on clearance, so I am glad I found it before Fall. I have to stock up before it is off the shelves. This coffee did not disappoint; it’s yummy!
3. Care packages. My parents sent me a care package this week, and I really appreciated it. Getting mail in general is exciting to me, whether it is a card or a magazine. A full care packkage complete with zucchini bread, motivational card and a few other goodies? Now that is above and beyond!
(Almost all of the zucchini bread was gone before I thought about snapping a picture. I know, I know… trust me, pictures couldn’t do the deliciousness justice. Perfect texture + perfect taste = my mom’s zucchini bread)
I absolutely love this wristlet. It’s the perfect quote for me in this stage of my life!
4. Pure Barre. I have been very interested in barre classes for years now, but have never had access to them. Now living in the Indianapolis Metro Area, I have access to a plethora of studios. Two Pure Barre locations are pretty close to me, so I went for my free trial class and purchased the unlimited month.
This workout is different than anything I have ever done before. I’m interested to see how (or if) it changes my body in the next month.
5. Reading David and Goliath by Malcom Gladwell. This book is great. I am about halfway through it, and I don’t know if I have ever read such a thought-provoking book like this before. Gladwell challenges the way we perceive events that have happened, including David and Goliath from the book of 1 Samuel.
Are the underdogs truly the underdogs? Or, do they gain power from being perceived as the underdog? They do tasks in a different way, but is the way they do things really the better, more powerful way? So interesting!
I am thoroughly enjoying reading this book in the mornings with my coffee and in the evenings. Check it out!
Have a happy Friday and a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday! Thanks for reading! : )
