Catch up and Victoria’s Secret Giveaway

Victoria’s Secret Giveaway!!

To catch everyone’s attention first of all I have $10 to giveaway for Victoria’s Secret. I bought 2 swimsuit tops and they came in the mail today and in with them was a gift certificate for “$10 off minimum of $10 purchase”

It isn’t good on clearance purchases though. So if you want to enter the giveaway just leave a comment telling me what you would buy with it!

It expires the 31st of July so let’s choose the winner on Saturday and you have until the end of the day Friday to enter. Sound good?

Now did you miss me this weekend? I went home and had a nice relaxing weekend. I have a lot of reviews ahead so hopefully you don’t get bored!

To start off, Friday morning before work I was making tuna salad for a sandwich to take for lunch and look what happened to me.

This egg was stuck in the carton and I was trying to pull it out and of course cracked it and then it splattered all over me.

Good thing I didn’t like the top I was wearing anyway. It was friday and friday is jeans day Smile

Lunch! I seriously have fallen in love with the Snyder’s Peanut Butter Sandwich Pretzels! I bought them with a coupon and wish they weren’t so expensive because they have become an addiction, not going to lie.

I saw Harry Potter this weekend and pretty much think this one was THE best out of them all. I loved every second of it.

I also went to Walgreens in hopes of getting Sally Hansen Crackle nail polish because I had some coupons to make it a bit better price. However, sitting right next to it was the brand Pure Ice and they came out with crackle nail polish too and instead of 6.99, these were 3.99. So I got it to try out!

Sorry for the picture quality, my phone was the only thing near me at the time.

I did run the past few days, I just didn’t take any pictures.

Thursday and Friday were both 6 miles
Saturday was 6 miles
Sunday was 8 miles
Monday is an off day

I also spent time icing my legs because they have been FATIGUED

I Like to Run Far

Before work I had a wonderful breakfast of Lightly Frosted Shredded Wheat with some mocha coffee.

Then I packed my lunch for work. Because I have a big girl job that is 9 hours a day. (It doesn’t feel that long which makes it wonderful! I seriously love it and the people I work with! )

After work I get in my car and it says “103” degrees. I check the weather online when I get home and it says “feels like 113” and of course I had 8 miles to run. So I did what any normal person would do, and hit up the rec center.

Of course you have to wear clothes to the gym, or at least I have not seen anyone in just a sports bra.

So I wore my AMAZINGLY NEW AND CUTE tank top from Run Pretty Far that I won in a giveaway from Miss Zippy!

I got to the rec with about an hour until they closed so I hopped on the indoor track and booked it! I probably averaged 7:30-7:45 for my run inside. I ran approximately 6 miles inside.

Then I had to brave the heat when they kicked me out at close time.

I did another 2 miles to make my 8 mile long run. This picture was post run at the rec and outside. I was able to hop right off the indoor track and onto the road with hardly any time in between.

I wasn’t too hungry when I got home but I made a light dinner.

I’m hitting up the grocery store Tuesday or Wednesday to get some more heartier meals hah.

Q: If you had the choice between wearing business casual or scrubs, what would you wear to work? I think I’m going to purchase a pair or two of scrubs if I find some that fit and are decent in price so on days I’d rather not worry about dressing up I can throw on scrubs.

Q: What’s your job like? I mostly do data entry stuff and make phone calls. I am truly thankful it’s a sit down job because with running, the last thing I want to do is be on my feet for 8-9 hours.

Q: Don’t you just love the apparel Run Pretty Far makes?! It is sooo cute! I will tell you it’s probably the most comfortable tank I own and that says a lot. It also looks cute with actual clothes besides running clothes.
