one// Our week was so crazy. We thought my husband had food poisoning, but when we went to the Urgent Care facility they sent us right over to the ER. Talk about an emotional roller coaster. The doctor was confident it was his appendix, which would mean surgery, and soon. But, they were able to determine that wasn't the problem, and ran countless tests and scans. The ER is a very interesting place, and we were there all day. Long story short they did find a few things on the scans, but nothing that would cause his symptoms. We were so tired at the end of all of that. I was also really happily overwhelmed with all of the love and support we got from family, friends and people in our congregation. The guy is loved!
two// I had a little fun this week working on the blog. January seemed like a good time to start with a few goals that I have for Pugs and Pearls. I set up an advertising page with a great option for you to advertise your own blog on the P&P sidebar! Excited to see some interest in that. I also made a grab button, which I have been meaning to do forever! It's so nice to feel accomplished.
three// January Ipsy Bag arrived! I really love getting this bag each month. Also pictured is the Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama mascara which I picked up impulsively at the drugstore. I've heard so many good things about it and I'm so excited to try it. You really get your money's worth in these Ispy bags. This month I got a full size eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, eyeshadow, and a double sided eyebrow brush. I also got a Skyn face wipe sample, which will be perfect for my purse.
four// Today was the first day that I noticed a difference in my body after starting a fitness class this month! I kind of sort actually had abs this morning! Whoop whoop! I love this class and it's truly a challenge. I love feeling sore the next day or two, just in time for the next class.
five// SkinnyTaste continues to be one of my favorite recipe blogs! Last night we made these Shrimp Stacks and they were beyond delicious. They don't look very filling, but they are! And pretty easy to make too. They had you use a measuring cup to make the stack-genius!
