What a Week of Treats (and Surprises)!

This week, I treated myself to some fun vacation and work goodies and I even got a few surprise treats too!

With our upcoming trip, I grabbed two new books! I have been flying through the Divergent series and as soon as I finish one book, I order the next one.  I’m starting the third one, Allegiant.  I’ve really enjoyed them all and I was happy to find a series that I could read through all summer!

I also grabbed If I Stay on Amazon this week.  It just sounded like an interesting book and for $6, I couldn’t pass it up! It’s soon to be made into a movie also, so maybe I’ll actually read a book before it comes out as a movie!

I also treated myself to this cute tank top on Jane.com.  I love that’s a longer tank and it looked super cute with my capri leggings and flip flops.  I love outfits that are comfy but stylish.  Nothing worse than feeling frumpy. 😦  This tank will also be great to wear to work too with my skinny black capris.  For $11.99, it was a great deal!2014-07-16 14.01.57

And finally, I scoped out the White House Black Market site for any sale dresses.  I had some gift cards from my in-laws from Christmas and my birthday to use and I love when they put their dresses on clearance!  I just can’t bring myself to pay full price for anything.  I found this really cute dress for $50 (regularly $150!).  It’ll be great to wear to work with a cardigan.  whbmAnd two surprises!?

I was so excited to find out that I was the blogger highlight of the week by Jill Conyers on her blog!  Holy Smokes!  That just made my week! 🙂


I got an awesome treat in my inbox.  I entered a contest through Carolina Runner to win a free entry into the Bethel Half Marathon and I won!!  I’m so excited to add this race to my schedule.  It’s going to be absolutely beautiful that time of year (October) in the mountains.  It’ll be a great event and we’re looking forward to turning this into a mini vacation! bethelrace
