^^this one is for Jim, haha!^^

Morning my Friday Friends! I am happy for the weekend, but wow...after months of insanity, work just **stopped** this week. Its crazy to have gone from 12-15 steady hours of a work a day, to barely being able to stay occupied for 6 hours a day. I tried to use my extra time to do some of the big projects that I kept wishing go had time for, but I just ran out of steam. I couldn't get going on anything all day.

Here are my pics of the week!

My handsome Grim on our day of Farm Stand hopping

I have been watching the Home Edit and I was inspired to make custom silverware drawers. Grim and I did them together! It's the little things like this that make me so happy :)

And finally, my before & after haircut! I feel so much lighter :)

QOTD:What is the most ridiculous thing you will admit to owning? Its the Squatty Potty! Couldn't recommend it more for post-ops ;)

Yesterday was a better day for food and exercise. I stuck to my plan all day but only added a hard seltzer at the end of the night which added 4 points. And I did lots of walking--indoors and outdoors. Back at it today.

Love the new hair JB!!

so happy today is Friday!

qotd - I have a weighted hula hoop. I am not a good hula hooper.

i still can't imagine what it's like for the west coasters right now. They said on the news, I think it was Tuesday, that day Denver was 7th worse for air quality in the world because of the smoke here and I know we're not dealing with the same scale as they are. Photos today are the smoke pattern one of the days this week and some sunset last night.

menu today

grain free English muffin

cheddar cheese with a few pepperoni discs

light and fit greek

cheddar brat

all the coffee

Good morning all and happy Friday at last! JB I am loving your haircut! It's super cute! I had way too much going on yesterday and last night and was up wayyyy past my bedtime so I'm struggling this morning! This evening we are going out to dinner to celebrate my mom and brothers girlfriends birthdays. I'm excited to try this new restaurant, but have no clue what I'm going to order yet. I'll probably splurge a little bit, but hopefully I don't go overboard! I've been preparing all week and trying to be super strict with my calories in preparation for this. Accountability was good yesterday even though dinner got pushed off schedule a bit.

QOTD: Hmmm...I've owned a lot of ridiculous things over the years, but nothing is coming to mind other than this neon sign in the shape of a cat. It serves no purpose other than for decoration, but it's neon pink and actually kind of hideous. Lol. I honestly don't remember why I got it. Lol

B: coffee w/Splenda & sf creamer x 2

B2: protein shake (premier shake mixed with a frozen banana)

L: 2 oz roast beef and a hard boiled egg

D: ???

S: L&F Greek yogurt and fruit

The pictures are from the photo shoot my brother and I did. It will be our birthday gift to mom since she doesn't have any pictures of us since we were kids. The top picture is the one we are framing for her. It was tough choosing just one out of the over 100 we took! Lol Thanks to PartlyPollyanna for the idea! At least I think it was you....if I'm wrong I'm sorry!
