Happy Happy Friday

Whew this week just flew by. Last week was such a blur because of the four day weekend, and this week was pretty busy too. As always I am linking up with the fabulous Lauren over at From My Grey Desk.

1. I started working! I think angels are bursting into song while unicorns dance around strawberry fields. Y'all, I cannot explain how good it feels to actually have a job. Yes, I am only in training right now. However, all of my grownup office clothes can finally come out of hibernation. Oh and the getting paid is nice too. I have one more session of training, two days of shadowing and then I am off to advise the students of Northern New York on their class schedules.

2. Lane made me paleo hot chocolate last night and I had it in my favorite mug. It has almond milk, unsweetened coco powder, honey, and cinnamon. I am obsessed with this mug. We have matching Shakespearean insults and love quotes. Here are some of my other favorites from The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild . Some of them change when you add hot water. I love how the the losing side on the Supreme Court case mug vanishes.

3. This picture made me giggle all afternoon. I had no idea that husky-corgi mixes even existed, but they are adorable. I fell in love with a husky-beagle mix, but he didn't look quite as comical as this. T-1 day till we may be dog owners.

4. My fitness goals have definitely been a big part of my life for the past few weeks. This week I managed 13 full Lane-approved push ups. I also was able to get my hand flat on the ground during triangle pose.

Instead of This 
          My dead-lifts at 105 are still rocking on too. Soon I will be over 100 on bench press, squat and dead lift. To all the women who freak out about getting bulky: I have lost serious inches off my arms and shoulders since I started. I love feeling stronger each week and marking my progress. I took before pictures, and we chose July 31st as the next picture date. I have no idea if I will post the pictures ( maybe if I can see enough improvement). 

5. Getting to wear my office clothes was such a nice change of pace. I am normally a pretty formal dresser, but actually breaking out my suit skirts was fantastic. I felt like more of my old self. I may actually do a few outfit posts if I can make my finicky camera cooperate.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend full of good food and friends. I am going to watch Lane play rugby, go hiking, and hopefully finish my pallet-diy.
