"Me Day" Highlights

Morning friends! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was great -- I had a "me day" on Saturday and it was wonderful! (I talk about what a "me day" is here and it's one of my April goals to have a "me day" this month!) I started the day at CrossFit. The workout was Elizabeth: 21, 15, 9 Cleans & Ring Dips. The Rx weight for women was 95 lbs, but I knew that was probably a little too heavy for me. I warmed up with 65 lbs which felt easy, but then when I added 10s, and was up to 85 lbs, it suddenly felt really hard! With so many reps I decided to go with 75 lbs, but halfway through the workout I knew I went to light. I finished in a little less than 9 minutes and was totally kicking myself-- I should have challenged myself more! I know for next time!

After showering and eating breakfast I headed to the nail salon. I had an appointment for the works-- a pedicure, gel manicure and to get my eyebrows waxed. When I got there and sat in the chair, my favorite magazine, People's Style Watch was already right there! Ahhh, let the relaxation begin!!

Magazine & Pedicure

On a side note, I'm one of those weird people that takes photos of things they see in magazines. People always look at me like I'm crazy when I do it but it's just so that I can reference things later... is that odd? Anyway, I'm loving this trend towards crop tops and high-waisted skirts!  I'm also loving  and this aqua green color I'm seeing everywhere!

I snapped a photo of this DIY fruit peel thinking that might be fun to try in the future!

Everyone at the nail salon had Starbucks and after my appointment, I was so sleepy I decided to splurge and get a coffee frappuccino. I noticed Starbucks is rolling out a new line of pastries called La Boulange and I'm obsessed with the branding--  I love anything pink and ultra feminine. It matched my nails so I took a moment to capture the prettiness! :)

Starbucks & ManicureI headed to Sears next and got a few new shirts and necklaces for work. EVERYTHING was on sale in Sears and I had a 15 percent off coupon so I felt pretty good about my purchases!

New ShirtsAfter that I had lunch with Aaron and then headed to mom's for awhile - she's moving and I helped her pack a little. Then I headed to Old Navy (I had the shopping bug) but I was beginning to feel exhausted! I finally went home and I don't know what happened, but I got a sudden burst of energy and decided to rearrange my apartment! I love to switch things up, especially when the season is changing and I have to say: the new arrangement looks fantastic! I'm loving it! (I'll share pictures soon!)

All and all it was a perfect "me day" - pampering, shopping, redecorating! Maybe I can squeeze one of these days in every month! :)

What did you do this weekend? Have you ever had a me day?
