This week I…

+ am tired. So, so tired. I realize everyone is tired, but I’m really, really glad it’s the weekend. I was wondering why I felt so exhausted on Wednesday night — let’s note, the evening of my birthday, in which I did nothing except stay in and work until midnight — then realized we haven’t really had a weekend off in several weeks. Moving last weekend (which went very well, thank you to everyone who asked me about it!), and then New York the weekend before. We’re pooped. It’s time to relax this weekend and have a cocktail!

+ am absolutely in love with our new apartment. I honestly think moving into our new place made us realize how unhappy we were in the old. The fact that I have my own bathroom for the first time in 10 years doesn’t hurt things. Yes, MY OWN BATHROOM. I know, I still can’t believe it either.

+ guest posted over on Kirby and Alexa’s blog, where I shared a few things I’m looking forward to this month. It’s going to be a busy (but very fun!) one.

+ caught all the Olympics gymnastics coverage. It made me feel like it was 1996 again and Kerri Strug was limping around on that ankle. Remember that??

+ Ordered my first pair of potential wedding shoes! And they’re my first pair of Manolo’s at that. But before you think I’ve gone crazy, get this: they were on mega super, ridiculously good sale. Will report back once I get them!

LINK OF THE WEEK: It’s no secret that I’m a lover of natural beauty products. I loved finding Kathy’s new blog Beauty Palette, where she’s sharing amazing natural beauty AND wellness tips (which honestly, are usually more useful and more powerful than beauty products alone!). Check it out! I think it’s great to see a new blogger who’s found such an interesting niche!

Happy weekend, friends!

    God I love gymnastics. 96 was supposed to be the year I made it, only I wasn’t nearly good enough. Haha.

    So glad you love your new place! Wow, your own bathroom is a luxury indeed.

    Totally hear you on being tired this week! haha Can’t wait to see the Manolos…I know the pair I want to wear at my wedding but they’re currently $725 (and obviously, the price keeps rising every year…and Lord knows when I’ll be getting married seeing as I’m single. LOL!)
