Good morning and TGIF! I cannot tell you how relieved I am that it is Friday. Why? I took my Google AdWords Advanced Search Certification Exam yesterday and PASSED. WOOHOO!!! I am good for another year when I have to take two exams to re-certify.
After my exam, I worked from home and waited. And waited. And waited. Any other day Fedex would have come between 12-2PM. They came at 5PM yesterday. The package? The next big thing…My Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It will take me all weekend to get it set up and learn its functions, so I will share more on it later.
Also last night – I attended my very first Origami Owl party. It was held at the clubhouse in our subdivision, so I put on my walking shoes and WALKED down there. Felt so good to get some fresh air. I ordered a necklace, locket, and some charms and will definitely take a picture when it arrives.

Missed your workout at the gym? Don't throw away the day. Find a space, plug in some music and commit to 15 mins. #workout

Plans for the weekend include some off-roading, a walk while hubby races, cleaning the house, grocery shopping, playing with my new phone, and more. Luckily next week will not be near as wild as this week has been.
What’s on your agenda for the weekend? Share something good with me – big plans for the weekend, a blog post, a blog you follow – anything!
