I don't know about you, but the weather we've had for the past few days is just plain inspiring to me! It's so beautiful, I just WANT to be outside. (and I'm normally more of an indoor girl) I've neglected this blog for far too long so I'm not even going to try and catch up. I'll just start right where I am right now! 
 Here's a random list of a few things that are making me happy today... 
- the BEAUTIFUL weather and 2 good, long walks with my pup this week 
- a 5K to get me moving this weekend 
 - Fun breakfast with a friend yesterday 
- and her upcoming wedding! I can't wait! 
- A trip to Target and Publix in the same day (to some of you this may not seem fun, but we have neither of these exciting places in Troy so it's a real treat!) 
- A night ahead to relax and enjoy some time with the hubby. We have both been crazy with work lately so some nice quality time is in order. 
- A new Tocca candle that was 75% off - yay for a nice-smelling home! 
- Fresh peaches and strawberries that make eating healthy delicious and fun! 
- An upcoming visit with the grandparents...we certainly don't see them often enough! 
- The almost-end of this terrible season of The Bachelor. I can't stop watching but I NEED it to be over. 

And a few products that I'd like to give a shout-out to as well 
- Clarasonic Mia: I resisted this for a long time because of the price, but I have always had problem skin and it is a dream come true. I actually feel like my skin is truly clean after a quick wash. A friend of mine compared it to a spa facial (a quick one) and I agree! I'm a fan! 
- Sarah McNamara Miracle Skin Transformer: The above-mentioned friend led me to this (and I led her to the Clarasonic) and I love it! It is like a tinted moisturizer but it really treats your skin and makes it look and feel so amazing! I am actually liking my skin more than usual right now and these products are to thank! 
- Candle favorites: I love my home to smell nice and I've found 3 candles recently that I am in love with! (I may be a little scent-ADD) #1. Tyler Candle Co. STARDOM #2. Tocca FLORENCE #3. Voluspa FRENCH CADE LAVENDER All of these are really nice and I highly encourage you to always check the "sale" candle shelves. They may be there for a reason (stinky) but they may actually be really awesome! 
- Books: "The Hunger Games"trilogy and "State of Wonder" were both recently-read, awesome books! I just got a recommendation for a new devotional "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young from a great friend and I'll let you know about that as I will be starting it today!

 I know this was an incredibly random post, but I hadn't written in so long I decided I just had to start with SOMETHING! I hope you are all having a fabulous week!
