Things That Make Me Smile Tuesday (10-4)

On top of a crazy past few days and low mood (let’s just say wake me up when October ends, k?), I decided to write “Things That Make Me Smile Tuesday” post. Here are a few things that have made me smile this week.

Eating Outside

Last Friday was Member Appreciation Day at my gym so they provided free food from Chick-Fil-A. I got a plate of food and took it outside to enjoy sitting on the benches in front of the gym. It’s finally cooling down here and was really cool this weekend with highs in the 70s. It’s almost like the weather read the calendar and decided to feel like October on the first day of October.


The Simpsons

I don’t know how many of you watched The Simpsons Sunday night, but it was hilarious! I love how a show from my childhood (that’s still on!) can keep me entertained as an adult. Clay and I watch it together every Sunday- it’s our little tradition. After we first started dating our junior years of college, he came over to my villa. Every. Sunday. Night. to watch. I don’t think we’ve missed many episodes since, either. I’ll watch the other animated Fox shows, but the Simpsons is the only one I consider myself a true fan of.

Halloween and Fall Decor!

I also bought some new kitchen decor for Fall and I found this awesome Halloween toy that is now guarding my full fruit basket. Yes, it’s the Wicked Witch of the West who will unleash her wrath on anyone who touches our fruit :).

Don't mess with my fruit


Since our company sponsored CrossFit class ended, I started going to a yoga class at the gym on Sunday afternoons. It’s nice to get in an hour long stretch session each week, and it’s a nice break from the running/intense cardio/weights that I usually do at the gym.

Good Local Coffee

I had a white mocha from Bean Groovy in honor of National Coffee Day! I do like Dunkin Donuts and even the occasional Starbucks but it’s nice to support a local coffee shop too.

Looking Like a Real Girl

Putting on makeup puts me in a better mood sometimes. Really. Even if my husband works crazy insane hours and puts up with seeing me in sweats, pajamas, and Carolina Gamecocks t-shirts all weekend.

New Running Shoes

I went into the running shoe store last week to try on the newer Mizunos and a couple pair of Brooks. After trying on the Wave Inspire 7 and discovering that they fit totally different than the Wave Inspire 5, the sales guy told me they had a pair of the Wave Inspire 6’s in my size on the sale rack. So… I tried them on, they fit AWESOME (just like the 5’s and in a cool color), and were on sale for an additional 25% off the sale price.

Running ShoesI pretty much hit the jackpot.

What’s making you smile today?

  1. If my work provided food from chickfila I would be all over that pronto. I am alive and well, which is making me smile today. That and my eyes aren’t burning like dickens (I had a corneal abrasion wahh). HA.

    well i haven’t gone so far as to put on makeup… but i know what you mean. when i put on real clothes i feel much better than when i put on my comfy, slack looking clothes. even for work i have nice-professional clothes and comfy-“professional” (well sort of) clothes. looking put together does put an extra bounce in your step!
