It’s been a packed-to-the-brim week — with 3 trips in less than 7 days (a trip to Atlanta for the Say Goodbye to Survival Mode event, a trip to NYC for my Fox Business interview, and a trip back to Atlanta to meet up with my sister and her family for a few days of fun!) + more.
Here are 5 things I’m loving this week:
1. Great Deals at Kohl’s
Kaitlynn and I went shopping for her birthday and she found some great deals at Kohl’s for some adorable clothes that she’s already worn multiple times this week. We found them on the clearance rack and they were just a few dollars per item!
I also bought some new shoes (a kind of rare occurrence for me!) and was excited to get a great deal on them! (See the shoes I bought in this picture here — I should have worn them for a few days before wearing them all over the streets of NYC because now I’m the proud owner of multiple blisters. It’s clear I don’t buy shoes often enough to know these types of things! :))
I got to read a pre-release copy of this book and absolutely adored it! It’s short, but packed with inspiration for business owners, entrepreneurs, or anyone who would like to get a glimpse at the inner workings and core values of Chick-fil-A.
3. The Georgia Aquarium
When we went to Atlanta with my sister and her family, we debated whether or not to go to the aquarium. The tickets are expensive, but we are SO glad we splurged and bought them as we absolutely loved our time there.
It’s hard to say what our favorite parts of the visit were as it seemed like at every turn, we were all saying “woah” and “wow!” Some of my highlights were: the beluga whales, sea horses, whale sharks, albino alligators, weedy sea dragons (these are so cool!), and the shark eggs.
I also loved the exhibits where you could touch some of the creatures — including starfish, sea urchins, sea anemone, and the sea cucumber (my favorite). If I had to pick one favorite, it would have to be the Dolphin Show. It was hands down incredible. Seriously! We were in awe… And now Kathrynne is considering changing her career ambitions to dolphin trainer.
4. Coffee With Friends
My friend, Jennifer, and her husband were in the Nashville area this morning and we got to meet for a quick cup of coffee. Jennifer is the author of one of my Top 10 Books from 2014 and just such a sweet, sweet woman. She’s inspired me in so many ways and blessed my life.
I was also supposed to have coffee with my friend, Tam, this afternoon. But I was really tired after a long week so I texted to ask if I could have a rain check on coffee with her. Well, guess what she did, she went and got a coffee and dropped it off at my doorstep… because she’s such a dear person like that!
5. A Day At Home
After coffee with Jennifer this morning, I promptly came home and put on my Wonder Woman tee, hoodie, and comfy pants — one of my favorite “Lazy Day” outfits. (I had taken a shower and fixed my hair/makeup, so that I wouldn’t ruin my day!)
It was so nice to have a day to just rest, relax, and enjoy being with my people.
(Silas sat next to me for quite awhile today hard at work on his latest Loom Band* creation. He’s kind of obsessed with these right now and does a great job making them!
However, when I took this picture, he was concerned that if I posted a picture with the Loom Bands, someone might comment that “Loom Bands are for girls!!”
I told him not to worry about what other people think. If he likes creating with Loom Bands, then he should go for it, because I love to see him learning new things and trying his hand at new skills!)
