Link Love #48

Wow, where did Monday go?! Yesterday completely flew by but I’m thinking I’ll take some more of those days right about now. With each passing day, I’m getting more and more excited to head back home! There are also lots of exciting things going on over here that I’m hoping to share with you soon. Let’s just say fingers crossed! In the meantime, my birthday is coming up pretty quickly and of course dinner reservations have already been made [at NOPA] and I’m getting super psyched!

I have no smooth transition into links this week, so I’m just going to say enjoy! 😉

Link Love #37

Yesterday was a first for me—Athleta got a ton of new product in so we had a “flip” where the entire store is rearranged and new product is incorporated into the displays. It’s not really anything I thought about before, but when I got into work at 5 a.m. yesterday, you bet I was thinking about it! It was kind of nuts but I also kind of enjoyed it. I was also finished with work by 10 a.m. so that’s a plus. Oh, and there’s some pretty cute new stuff that you should definitely check out [come see me!] The 4 a.m. wake-up call had me walking around like a zombie for pretty much the rest of the day, but I have to admit, it’s nice to really feel tired again.

Nathan also found out about a Target deal good through 5/24 for $10 off your $50 grocery purchase. We also had a $10 gift card so I was pretty excited to get $50 worth of groceries for $30. It’s the little things 😉 I also made him come with me to keep me on track ha! Anywho, it’s catch up time and as usual, there are some goodies.. enjoy!
