Oh hey {just a} Friday!

Oh it was just a Friday!


There was this from the teenager...



He ate 5 frozen waffles for breakfast.



He doesn't know front from the back.



He's somewhere in that group of kids boarding a bus for a Wyldlife trip to Carolina Point and didn't even say goodbye.

And this from the other two...

The annual Boosterthon Fun Run to benefit Satchel Ford PTO. There's loud music, people running all over the place, bartenders serving water shots, and principals eating worms. My friend Margaret and I called it an elementary frat party. All because they raised $30K. Good stuff!

And these are the shots you get on your phone when it's too bright to see what you're taking a picture of.



Well maybe that one was ok.



I don't really know what's happening here. All I know is he needs a haircut.



Or what's happening here.



Good attempt at a cute pic!



Hey there buddy! This ain't no walkathon.



Mad skillzzz.



Aaaaaannnnndddd he's out.



Have a great weekend!

A Funny Memory...Just in Time

Today I'm thanking Facebook for a funny memory...just in time!

My heart has been a little heavy the last few days, as I realized that we are only a few days away from the six-month mark since we lost Robin. She was my neighbor and closest friend, and I still cannot believe that it has been six months since I have seen her.

Our days were packed with hilarious, nowhere phone conversations that were frequently cut short because someone more important was beeping in...and she wasn't afraid to tell you that. Our days were also filled with great dysfunction! Whether it was the cops showing up for false alarms, Carson's third-world illnesses, or the Baker boys having to get stitches while Robin was babysitting, there was always dysfunction!

Just in the nick of time, this morning Facebook reminded me of one of the funniest events of my entire life. I have NEVER laughed so hard and for so long...after the fact, that is. I have always wanted to tell this story on this blog but I'm afraid it won't translate well if it's transcribed. I've also wondered if I should video the story. But without an audience, I'm afraid it will lose the luster. So I'm going to do the best I can... grab a glass of wine and have a seat!










Wonder-twin powers activate!


And finally the most bizarre poster advocating hand washing I've ever seen...on the wall in a hospital bathroom!!!



Thanks for hanging and I hope you got a good chuckle!

Beauty and the Barre

Hey friends!

I just wanted to let y'all in on 2 of my favorite things that are making my life a little sweeter {and healthier} and share with you a couple of opportunities to learn more about both...

About 4 years ago I was introduced to Barre3 online. It's an affordable, online exercise program that combines yoga, pilates, and ballet and is a fabulous total body workout. I quickly became obsessed, as it was the greatest workout I'd ever done! Then, about a year and a half later my JLC buddy Lauren opened a studio in Columbia. I joined shortly after and never looked back! I feel more energized and have noticed a crazy change in my strength and endurance and as a bonus I've lost some LBS and inches!

The super awesome thing about Barre3 is they focus on all aspects of a healthy lifestyle - fitness, nutrition, and a mind-body connection. I have made some great friends and truly enjoy going! If you're in my area and ever want to try a class...I'd love to have you as my guest.

Well, this evening (2/21) at 8pm EST Barre3's founder Sadie Lincoln is holding a webinar on getting healthy from the inside out. It's amazing how our gut-health controls the rest of our health. The info is below...I can't wait to tune in and I hope you will too!

Next up...

Y'all know I'm a woman on a mission to educate others on the alarming facts and lack of regulations regarding the personal care product industry. Beautycounter is changing the "face" of the industry and we want to teach you more about it!

For 2 and a half years, Beautycounter has been far more than a source for high-performing personal care products for my family and me. It has been a financially rewarding platform for me to share my passion. I LOVE THIS JOB!

My good buddy and mentor Jen is holding an informative Facebook LIVE session Wednesday night (2/22) at 8pm EST. I hope you will join me! It's gonna be full of AWESOME information that you'll want to share with others!



Meet Beautycounter Wednesday, February 22 at 8pm EST!

Here's to hoping my passions will rub off on you a little. 😉
