What a Weekend!


This weekend was super productive in that I got a lot of necessary stuff done, but unfortunately a lot of that necessary stuff also cost a bit of money...

Before sharing my weekend recap, I have to share two super exciting things that bookended the weekend for me!

//

To start off Friday I went into my closet with very few clean options and decided to try on this one certain dress. This one certain dress has been alluding me for at least 6-8 months in that I bought it on super sale, it didn't fit when I bought it, and I told myself I would be able to wear it one day. Well, that hadn't happened, and I actually almost gave in and donated it a few weeks ago. 

But, with few options I decided to put it on and see what it looked like. And, believe it or not...it fit! I hadn't tried it in a month or two, but it wasn't tight at all and was perfect! Such a thrill for me... 

And to end the weekend, on Sunday night I was accepted as a FitFluential Ambassador!

I am so thrilled about the opportunity! FitFluential is a community of likeminded people who live healthy lifestyles and promote fitness and smart choices with others. FitFluential offers free workouts and fitness tips, and it provides opportunities for Ambassadors to partner with brands to review and giveaway products related to the greater mission. You can learn more about it on the FitFluential website or on their facebook page! You'll of course be hearing more about it here too as I also learn more about this opportunity.

So, that was the fun beginning and end...now the middle!

On Friday I got the BaubleBar buried bauble email and picked up two pairs of these pretties.
One in coral and one in purple. Can't wait for them to come.

On Saturday morning I headed to the gym for BodyCombat and BodyPump, two classes at the gym I've been doing for about a month and a half and love. Anyone else do either of these? They're Les Mills, so I know they're done around the country at different gyms.
After a shower, I headed down to South Tampa to use my Groupon at Feet First to buy some new running shoes. I'm pretty sure my old ones have 500+ miles on them and were starting to cause me some calf and shin pain.

Here are my new ones, and not that I'm supposed to care what running shoes look like, but I really like the colors of these so much better. I got Saucony ProGrid Omni 10's.
I also picked up new cross training shoes, because using my super old Nike frees just wasn't cutting it anymore. They're fun old school looking pink and green pumas.
And then the not so fun money spending...I went to just get an oil change, and I ended up having to get a bunch of other stuff done to my car. It was so expensive, and it was so sad to say goodbye to that money. Cars are so expensive! Why does it never fail to surprise me?

Saturday night was so relaxing, and I just lounged with Tim and caught up on some blogging. I also watched Crazy Stupid Love when Tim had to go do his MBA work, and my goodness did I love love that movie!! Have you seen it? Did you predict any of the things that happened? I totally didn't and felt so silly.
Sunday morning I got up and did 8 miles, even though I really didn't want to. But like they say...

After I was out and going I felt pretty good aside from my super sore calves and shins. I've sufficiently worn out my legs and am ready to taper for the Challenge I'm doing next weekend! Can't wait/hope I don't fall over sideways.

Afterwards I made a major list of all of life's necessities at the moment and headed to my favorite one stop shoppe--Tarjay. 

I don't clothes shop there enough. 
I picked up two new shirts and a skirt with some coupons they had on the website.
And I found the first bathing suit I'm going to pick up for this spring/summer. I tried it on in navy but want it in this color:

I had so much fun!
Sunday night was laundry, making dinner, froyo, and Oscars.

How was your weekend?!

So many great things!
3 cheers for the dress fitting!! So happy you didn't give it away! You've been doing great with your workouts and I'm so glad its showing. :)

Love your new running shoes. That color is perfect. Right up my alley. I have the Saucony..something or others in bright blue and I really really like them!

I haven't seen that movie yet, but have heard so much about it and I couldn't agree more w/that first step is the hardest poster. Today I'm getting back into working out after moping for a week, and I know it'll be tough to make that first step.

Happy Monday!

Sounds like a perfect weekend! I love your new shirt and shoes--those neon ones are adorable! I know I need to get new running shoes but it's so hard to spend the money on them, ugh. And congrats on FitFluential! I've been hearing more about it lately and definitely want to hear more/check it out.

I haven't been brave enough to try on any bathing suits yet this season, but I love what you've picked out. :)
