Happy Friday everyone!
Hope everyone is safe from all this bad weather that's been going on. This kind of weather stresses me out and I do NOT like it at all.
I also apologize for being MIA this week. There have been several things going on, and things on my mind, but I'm back with you!
Taking it back to some of yesterday's happenings...I had an early morning client, got some work done, did a workout, and went to Walgreen's to pick up a few things, including some prints of pictures I've been wanting.
If you love having pictures around, listen up!
Walgreen's Photo Service is amazing! You can go to their website, upload what pictures you want prints of (or photo gifts), and within an hour they are ready for pick-up! I plan to continue to use them in the future.
As I got back to my apartment, I heard the sirens going off for all the weather. I was so stressed and glued to the news so I could know exactly where everything is, that I didn't get around to lunch until 2pm.
I forgot to take a picture, but I had a spinach salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, sesame seeds, avocado, some pea crisps on the side, and a small protein shake (unfortunately with water since I was out of almond milk)
After the weather calmed down a good bit, I hopped in the shower and decided to try out the new face mask I got from Walgreens.
This is the Studio 35 Beauty Detoxifying Charcoal Mask.
It is enriched with a Bamboo Charcoal, which is supposed to help detoxify your skin by absorbing any extra oil. So if you have oily skin like me, definitely give this a try!
Matt came by later on when he left work. They closed the zoo early due to weather, so he came over so I wouldn't be by myself in any possibility of more tornado warnings.
We watched some Orange is the New Black (on Netflix) and relaxed a bit since the weather was better. (This equaled a less stressed Emily). I just don't do well with tornado warnings!
I made sure to sip on plenty of water throughout the afternoon, because I could tell my body had not had enough. I'm not always the best at getting enough water, especially during the summer, and my body sure lets me know when I don't!
For dinner, I decided to cook us the ground turkey meat I had purchased from Aldi last week, and I made some guacamole to go with it. Well, Matt cooked the meat and I made the guacamole. I topped it with bell pepper and a little shredded cheese on top. All on top of some spinach greens!
After dinner we got back to another episode or two of Orange is the New Black, and then there was a knock on my door.
My BOXED shipment came in! Yay!
I didn't expect it to come yesterday with all the weather, but I was happy to see it.
BOXED is an online store where you can purchase household items, groceries, etc., in bulk and at low prices!
I will do a detailed post about them soon. I absolutely love them! I ordered toilet paper, a pub mix, almond milk, and a few free sample options
I decided to have a cup of coffee once I opened it all so I could try this little waffle cookie.
I really need to stop any coffee drinking at night. It doesn't keep me up, but more often I have been wanting a cup after dinner....
So, nothing too exciting for my Thursday afternoon, but when weather is bad, there's not much to do (at least for me) without worrying too much. But the afternoon/evening was relaxing once everything calmed down.
I have a cake testing tomorrow morning for the wedding cake and maybe groom's cake, so I will recap that next week!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
