Finally Friday!

This week has had so much going on. I am of course starting on my path to get back in shape, so my focus has been there as I adjust my bad habits and turn them into good habits. Which means I haven't painted my nails since Tuesday! I will for sure paint them tonight though, the Essence polish I am wearing is chiptastic and I can't wait to get it off! Working out is going great, I am remembering how much I loved it and can't figure out why I stopped to begin with. Let's hope this feeling stays. Plus when I am working out I tend to eat better too, so overall I am already starting to feel better. Loving that! I'm starting slow, I am just doing a brisk walk for 30 minutes each day. (I walk at a joggers pace, so not bad if you ask me) and then some Yoga. I have been using the Exercise On Demand channel that my cable company offers and yesterday I took an actual Yoga class. It felt so good. Tomorrow I am suppose to go to a Zumba class with a friend. I am dying to try it, but I am a bit nervous all at the same time. Let's see how that goes or if it even actually goes. I love Yoga cause you can feel your body working, and the stretching and everything, but you can relax at the same time from the workout. You just have to add your own cardio in with it. You can't just do Yoga alone, so it is nice to have some options.

Hey look - here I am doing Yoga on the beach while on the cruise. Ha! (I'm the one in the white tank and blue shorts.)

My daughter's homecoming is this weekend, so we are off to do some shopping tonight, which should be fun. I feel like a "mean" mom because I am making her wear the dress we bought her for my brother's wedding back in July. So she gets to watch her friends last minute shop for a dress, while she is stuck with what she has. I am thinking I will get her some different accessories or something instead. That should be cool right?

Here's a cropped picture of the dress. You can't see it too much, but I was trying to crop everyone else out and her face out. It's cute though. It has an exposed silver zipper running down the back and she is wearing low silver dressy sandals with it.

My nail polish samples should be on their way to me today. We are on round three with the lab right now, so let's hope the third time is the charm! They may even already have a sample for Tierny's color for me! That will be impressive. I can't wait to get these colors into production. If it works out great today, production can start in the upcoming weeks and I may have the polishes ready for sale in December! That would be ahead of schedule, and I'm super excited about that possability! Since the samples aren't here yet, I have no pictures of them for you. :(

Other than that, work has been hectic this week and I feel like I haven't seen my family enough, so hopefully this weekend we can get back to some good quality family time. The weather is still in the high 80's here, although this morning it was 70 when I woke up. But since it is so nice out, maybe we can hit the beach together. Although there are tons of jelly fish washing ashore and the waves are instense, so who knows. There were tons of jelly fish washed ashore the other day when I went for a walk. Did you know that you can still get stung even after they are "dead" on the shore? Yuppers! So if you ever see one, don't go picking it up!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! See you back here on Monday!
