Made it to Friday! Last weekend was a particularly fun weekend because I had a big girls’ weekend in Newport Beach/Laguna Beach so the beginning of this week was a bit of a comedown. I was thrilled on Tuesday though because I got my engagement ring back after it was being sized for a week (I STILL can’t believe I have a fiancé!!!). I also did a few fun workouts this week including my regular tennis lesson with Allison (did I mention I take tennis lessons?), a Burn 60 class, and a Soul Cycle class. I snuck in a facial at Queen Bee and also squeezed in dinner last night with one of best college gals. It was also a crazy week because Wednesday was the last day of my school year so I said goodbye to my second grade students for the year! I still have work through next Wednesday though before summer break, woof! I was really happy too to get my summer reading list post up. It’s a post I always love putting together! More below on Snapchat + highlights…
So, I’ve also been thinking a lot about Snapchat. I have SUPER mixed feelings on it. Every single one of my friends will tell you that I’m the single worst snapchatter they know because I rarely check it BUT I want to try to start. Summer break seems a good enough time as any! If you want to follow along (please bare with me!), you can add me at “jilliana5590” to join in on the fun (I it’s fun hope!). “jilliana5590” you might be wondering… yes, it’s my old screen name that I used to use for everything (my first name, last initial, and birthday – I know, pretty interesting stuff!). I booked a last minute trip to Charleston this weekend so the Snapchats will be coming. As always, thanks for following along! Y’all make my life so much more interesting!
