Friday 5


We finally got our picture back with Zac Brown Band after our concert extravaganza with them a few weeks back. I seriously wish I could relive that night like once a month.

I've sort of caught the running bug. It hits me every year, and right now, I've definitely got it hard. I think I've mentioned it before, but SoulCycle has made a huge difference for my running, both mentally and physically, and I think soon I'll be crushing 6 mile runs like it aint no thang.


Joel had to work on Wednesday night so we weren't able to get to the Hunger Games preview, but it worked out because I was able to meet up with some of my mom's friends who were in town. We had drinks at The Bazaar in the SLS Hotel, and what a cool spot it is.

The drinks are really expensive, but you end up forgetting since it's such a cool experience. We made dinner reservations there for the week we come back from Chicago so we'll see how the dinner part stands up.

And, speaking of Chicago!! I leave on Monday!!! I packed on Wednesday because I just couldn't handle it anymore. It's going to be a packed week but I'm getting a chance to see almost all of my family and friends that are there so I couldn't be more excited.

We are decorating our house tomorrow for Christmas. We decided to do it early so that when we come home from Thanksgiving, it's all set up for us to enjoy. Plus, any excuse to drink champagne during the day is fine by me. 


  1. I love that Santa's Little Helper! You're so good about exercising. I wish I had the motivation! That restaurant looks so cool! Have a great weekend!!

  2. I can't wait to decorate for Christmas!!! Have fun :)

  3. I cannot wait to decorate. We are doing ours next Friday.

    You look adorable in your ZBB pic!

  4. I'm so jealous that you're decorating for Christmas. I am such a hot mess this year, I"m not sure we will have full-out decorations. Blah.

  5. There is no better excuse to drink champagne than Christmas décor. (My favorite thing during the holiday season is to mix Diet Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash with some champs-- looks and tastes like Christmas)

  6. Ahhhh that Zac Brown picture!!! So awesome!! Have the best time in Chicago - Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. I can't wait to see your decorated home!

  8. Congrats on the run, that's awesome! :) We took both pups yesterday and even though it was cold, it felt wonderful to be running again. I felt like I could've gone a lot further, but due to the pups (and husband haha) I wasn't able. Sad face.

    I put most of our decor up today, with the exception of the outside stuff (which I'll wait to do until after Thanksgiving), garlands, and tree.

    Have SO MUCH FUN at home! :)
