Five Instagram Photos of the Week
My new Thirty-One work bag – the Suite Success Tote. It has a laptop compartment and a built-in thermal zipper pouch. LOVE this bag.
Tuesday I made my FitBit super happy!
A local restaurant was celebrating their 1 year anniversary the day Mom and I had lunch. They had happy balloons!
Our office bought an HP Chromebook for use in our conference area and to take to client meetings. It is essentially an internet browser. At $305 (tax and all) it was very budget friendly.
Wednesday night sushi dinner!
Today will be work, a few errands, and dinner with friends. Tomorrow I will be walking the Komen Race for the Cure and Sunday I will be cheering hubby on as he does a 15K.
