I survived my first night alone with hubby gone! He actually travels frequently for work, but never out of country, so this just feels a little different. It’s just weird knowing He is not even in the US. But I had a good night, so let’s backtrack to all the excitement of my Friday evening
I actually accidentally went to work an hour early yesterday. No idea how that happened, but at least I wasn’t an hour late. But this meant that I got off an hour early!
When I arrived home, I found my first Mary Kay order had arrived Of course, the order has a cute little card with it. Clearly, Mary Kay is all about cards and great design. Love it.
I got a looootttt of stuff in this order.
And that’s not even all of it! It’s currently taking over my kitchen table now. Where I’m going to put it all in the mean time – I have no idea…
What I was really excited about for this order was some goodies for moi. Mary Kay gives great consultant benefits, so when I ordered a certain amount they treat me with lots of goodies.
One of my goodies is my own “custom look.” It includes a small compact, 3 eye shadows, blush, 2 lip glosses, lip liner, eye liner, & mascara.
Although I already use Mary Kay make up, I am so excited about this look! The eye shadow colors are perfect for every day wear in my favorite neutral brown & cream colors. And really, new make up is always fun. Excited to try these out today.
Another goodie I got that I was dying to have is the travel roll up bag. If you’ve never seen this before, be warned. It’s awesome.
When it’s open (left), you can see 4 clear pouches for whatever you want. When it’s closed, the 4 pouches fit together to create a square bag that velcro’s closed. Each pouch is also velcro attached so you can take them off for easy access. It also has a hook on the top to hang it on the back of a door as well.
I played with my Mary Kay stuff for about an hour before this guy got desperate.
And now that “dad” isn’t home to provide Beans’ expected super-intense fetch sessions, I guess I have to pick up the slack for the next two weeks!
I skipped working out in the morning due to lack of time (if only I had known I had an extra hour before work…!). I never workout in the afternoon, but I wanted to stay on track with my half training.
I did this awesome weighted circuit workout by Allison @ A Realistic Life. And then I went on a 3 mile run. In the pouring rain.
As I was driving to my running spot, I saw huge dark clouds. I, of course, was thinking, “Hmm, I wonder if it’s going to rain.” After a mile in, it was pouring.
Weird thing is that I actually liked it! Kind of exhilarating, if you ask me.
Since I knew Friday night would be my first night alone, I wanted to make sure I had a good dinner to look forward to.
I find that whenever I’m alone, I eat terrible or just don’t plan any meals. I must have the mindset that, if I’m alone, I can’t cook a real meal or something. Any of you know what I’m talking about? I usually resort to random leftovers, mac n cheese, or something flat-out terrible for me (corn dogs, some crappy frozen thing, a batch of cookies…).
I do NOT want to get into that habit for the next two weeks though, so I made a French bread pizza. Nothing complicated, but at least it was a fresh warm meal.
I put onions, garlic, mozzarella, pepperoni, pizza seasoning, & parmesan on a mini baguette from Trader Joe’s. It was delish, except I put wayyy too much garlic on it. Like 4 cloves. I think I still have garlic breath…
And that was my super exciting Friday night! I realize I’m probably going to write a lot more life-y posts in the next two weeks, as I don’t have a husband to gush every detail to now.
I’m planning for a 6 mile long run for today & then I’m going to a friend’s for dinner & a movie. Hopefully the rain lets up so I can stay at least a little dry.
Have a great Saturday & Memorial Day weekend!
