Happy Friday!

This is going to be a great weekend for so many reasons!

Tonight, Brian and I will be attending his Dental School Graduation Party, which is like a fancy wedding reception.  I can’t wait to dress up!  Tomorrow, my sister and I run the Indianapolis Mini Marathon, and tomorrow night Brian and I have a date night scheduled.  So much fun stuff going on!

That being said, last night I had full intentions of being SUPER productive so that I could enjoy the weekend….but my body had different plans.  The entire day yesterday, I was completely exhausted so around 8:30pm I started to get ready for bed and I was in bed by 9…and it felt great!  Hopefully, the extra sleep was just what I needed.

Now, it’s time for some Five Things Friday 🙂

Five Things I Ate:

  • I had overnight oats for the first time in MONTHS this morning and they were GOOD.  Totally hit the spot 🙂 Topped my oats with some blueberry, strawberry, and nuttzo!

  • This past weekend, my “batch” item was a batch of lentil chickpea veggie burgers.  They are so good! I was kind of “playing” around in the kitchen when I made them so I didn’t really write the recipe down, so I’m going to have to make them again because they turned out so well!

  • A simple meal made by Brian!! When I got home from my final Mini Marathon Training on Wednesday night, Brian had a meal of roasted broccoli and salmon with half of a baked sweet potato for me.  So tasty, and I was so thankful to not make dinner.

  • Homemade Granola…I have been SO snacky this week.  Honestly, I think it’s because my body and mind are preparing for the half marathon tomorrow 🙂

  • Date night with Brian 2 nights in a row! Tonight, we have the dental school dance and tomorrow we are going to Crackers Comedy Club…I hope the comedian is funny!! 🙂
  • New makeup! I am always in search of a better mascara and I saw Julie from Peanut Butter Fingers post about Almay’s Get Up and Grow Mascara.  I was in the need for a new tube, so I decided to give Almay a try! So far so good 🙂

  1. I laughed so much at the JT May pic when you posted it on IG. It still makes me laugh now 🙂

    You’ve made me want to go out and get some of that mascara now too 😉

    I hope you had fun at the Dental Graduation. I also hope the mini marathon went well 🙂
