WOW WOW WOW. All I can say is THANK YOU for all the kind words and congrats on my first college acceptance letter.
I have to admit I didn’t think it would be as exciting as it was to open up that letter. When I got my hands on it though and realized not only had I been accepted but was being offered a 70,000 dollar scholarship (!), my heart skipped a beat! Like I said yesterday…it all finally feels like its paying off. And I honestly couldn’t be happier. Hopefully yesterday’s good news is a the start of a few weeks of it! I am supposed to find out sometime this week about my top choice!
Well, aside from that excitement, this weekend has literally been jammed pack! So much has gone on and I think it deserves its own little recap!
Friday marked our first official snow of the year…I say first official because it STUCK. So my Saturday morning walk with Ella was a cold one:
[Fence Face says BRRRRR!
Thank god we got some sun yesterday afternoon and today to melt the few inches we accumulated. The less snow the better in my book!
[doesn’t this look like a tree from the Grinch?! Whoville anyone?!]
I got some grocery shopping done, gift wrapping, and had a pretty good workout!
[No my workout was not on that festive bike…I wish LOL!]
The day was topped off with not one but TWO major acceptances! You all know about the first (obviously ), but the second I have yet to share…
I am officially a FITFLUENTIAL ambassador!!!
If you don’t know what FitFluential is…definitely go check out there site. They are an amazing company and I can’t wait to explore all the new opportunities they will open up for the blog and for all of YOU!
But sadly with all this good stuff…some bad luck was bound to happen. Last night, my mom got horrible sick with the flu….needless to say we were all up ALL night. I felt so bad! It was so sad seeing her in pain and discomfort all day and night. She’s starting to feel a bit better but I can tell she is totally exhausted. Hasn’t been able to keep down one bite of food ALL DAY.
[Unlike me who has been eating yummy food non stop!!]
And despite the lack of sleep, I was able to make it to a yoga class today. I was hoping the heat would loosen up my shin and make it feel fantastic but it actually ended up feeling worse after class. Some of the bikram moves just didn’t work well with the injury. So I guess yoga is out of the question for a bit as well….so much for my December goal!
After yoga, my dad and I went on our annual shopping trip where I help him buy Christmas presents for my mom…he needs a woman’s input LOL! He got her some great stuff….I can’t wait to see her face on the big day!
So as you can see….a totally non stop weekend! I kind of loved it though (minus the sick mama ). Being busy is fun for me!
Stay tuned this week for a giveaway, a q and a sesh, and more organized posts<-clearly this one is ALL over the place. I blame that on my sleep deprivation
What did you do this weekend?
Do you like having a white Christmas?
I definitely don’t! I have seen more than my fair share of snow and it has seriously lost all its charm and allure to me. Get me to the tropics!
Have a great start to the new week!
Keep the formspring Q’s coming for a Q and A sesh!!
