Friday Favorites

Ahhh… Happy Friday. And Happy Holidays! I can officially say it. Who doesn’t love this time of year. It gets me so excited to the upcoming season where I get to celebrate the year with my friends and family. It’s so special to me and even more special because of me moving plans. (I don’t want to think about it)

This week has been a fun one. I have worked out every day AND sat on my exercise ball. My back is definitely feeling it and sometimes I have caught myself leaning on the desk, but at least it’s better than the chair right?

AND…I’m an official graduate of the HBS Management Development Program! One of the best classes I have ever taken, worth every dime, hour and word I had to read. I am so very grateful for the opportunity.

On a even better note…I cannot believe that all of my friends who entered into the Nike Women’s Half Marathon made it! EJ, Sarah, Kelli, Traci and myself all made it into the Nike Women’s Half Marathon Inaugural Event in DC this year. I am SO excited and determined to hit a PR (of…2:03!) That’s what I’m going to work towards (using my friend and mentor’s plan, Matt Newsom).

This race is an unbelievable race. I cannot wait to see all of these women at the starting line. It’s going to be a GREAT feeling and an amazing weekend with friends and friends completing their first half marathon!

Here’s what I’m loving this week:

Have you done this yet? If not, go to your page and in the right hand corner of your timeline you will see a link to view your 2012 history. WOW. It makes me feel so grateful for the AMAZING year I have had. I promise you it’s worth your time and it isn’t a Facebook trick to make you download something 🙂 Here’s part of mine:

You know what day it is, my favorite. Last night I had my first Christmas party. This is the annual Christmas party were the hosts have a 17 foot Christmas tree in their home. They told me last night it was 500 pounds.

Okay..this is amazing- Covergirl Lash Blast Shimmer + Volume Mascara.

Ladies, I wore this to the Christmas Party Last Night and FELL IN LOVE. It really does have a slight shimmer to it which makes your eyes pop. It’s currently on sale at Target for $6.44, go grab some! The volume and shimmer at that price= oh yes.

HOW COOL IS THIS?!? A place where you can take free courses (college courses) with high ranking schools like Stanford, Harvard, UNC, University of Maryland and more. all you have to do is pay for the books!

Happy Friday!!
