Made it through my first week back at work after spring break! It went by super fast so I was so happy! I’m kicking off my weekend today at 4pm with a manicure at Olive & June with my girlfriends. Then I’m going out with friends tonight. Saturday morning I’m doing a workout at Burn60 and then brunching at A.O.C., aka the BEST brunch! Sunday, I get to hang with my mama who will be in town, so, more brunching! I’m ready… let’s go weekend!
