Hey, It's Ok Thursday + Things I'm Loving Thursday

It's ok that I'm merging two posts, right? I mean, this week has been nuts, so I think it's only appropriate to share with you both the ups and downs. :)

Hey, it's ok...

1) That about 30% of my to-do list for the week has continued to roll over to the next day (and the next...and the next...). I mean, I can only do 10 things at a time, not 11. I'll get to these tasks eventually...

2) That I was supposed to run 5 miles yesterday according to my training plan, but I ran 4 and walked one. I was TIRED...throw me a bone!

3) That I've "scrunched" my hair almost every day this week instead of taking the time to straighten it. I mean, that extra 15 minutes of sleep can be invaluable, can I get an amen?

4) That I have only cooked dinner once and I have forgotten to pack my lunch for work every day this week (= eating fast food). Whoops! ;)

5) That I stress out, freak out, and over-analyze all the time every now and again because I know that I have a God that loves me unconditionally, even in the moments that I forget to fully depend on Him. He strength is made perfect in my weakness and I love this. God is so good.  

Things I'm Loving...

1) My mascara = Maybelline Colossal Volume. This stuff is so legit! I have not found another mascara that truly volumizes the way this one does. I am never diappointed and can always depend on long, full lashes to be delivered with this guy. 

2) Mine and Luke's new bedspread. I posted a not-so-great picture of it in my last post, but the lighting didn't do it justice. I bought this comforter set from Macy's way on sale this past weekend and after a few nights, I've decided it's my favorite comforter EVER! And I think Luke agrees since I wake up with about 1/4th of the blanket barely covering my body and the other 3/4ths wrapped around him, ha!

3) Colored skinny jeans. Yes, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. :) Being a short and somewhat curvy girl, I'm never really liked the concept of skinny jeans, but when I was in NYC, they were EVERYWHERE! And I loved all the colors...red, coral, royal blue, purple. I haven't stopped thinking about this new fashion trend and I think I'm about ready to break down and buy a pair. I'm really feeling these from American Eagle. How do you feel about skinny jeans?

4) Under Armour HeatGear Capri Tights. If you are a runner and haven't purchased a pair of these, I highly recommend them. Luke bought me a pair for my birthday and they are seriously my favorite thing to work out in. They sort of form to your body as you begin to sweat, offering you protection to the elements, releasing heat to keep you cool, and there is no chaffing whatsoever (a runner's nightmare). I'm in love!

5) My new Buckle bikini. I was not expecting at all to find a new swimsuit at Buckle. Before a couple of weeks ago, I don't think I had actually walked into that store since high school. But low and behold, as I walked past the front of the store, my eye caught something bight and summery. So, I walked in, tried it on, loved it, and purchased it! The best part, I had an OLD $10 off coupon to Buckle (again, probably from high school) and the sales lady accepted it. Waahoo!!

Have a blessed Thursday y'all! One more day until the weekend.
We can make it!!

XO, Sara


  1. How does the mascara hold up to tears? I'm still on the search for a good wedding day mascara lol

    And I agree, the extra 15 minutes of sleep is way better than taking the time to straighten your hair... I've been rocking a pony tail all week because of that

  2. Haha, I'm with you on the hair but for me It's more like an extra 1hr. I love your number 5 :)

  3. You called for an Amen on the sleep, but I am going to give you an Amen on it all!
    I think we are on the same page today: the crazy week, the mascara, the skinny jeans, the running tights, everything!

  4. The fact that you did any exercise means your one up on me...aaaand, I am so going to have to try that mascara!


  5. LOVe that bikini!! I also love that mascara!


Let me know your thoughts! I love comments. :)
