Good morning and TGIF! First off, let me wish one of my BFF’s A a very happy birthday!!! We will be celebrating this evening!
Next a few Instagram photos. First up is my new 31 Double Take Tote. This was the hostess exclusive for September. LOVE IT! Has tons of pockets including one for a laptop and one thermal lined.
Tried a Suja Essential drink for the first time. Only 5 ingredients, all organic, 12 ounces, 180 calories. And it tasted great!
My new blog/website has CoSchedule installed on it and they sent me this fabulous little notebook thanking me for using their paid option. They even included a hand written note. Excellent customer service and product!
This was my view while reading yesterday when I got home. Such a beautiful day. We are expecting a day of rain here – but I cannot complain as we desperately need it. (Note: It is now raining here. YAY!)
