Simple Pleasures

Another work week is nearly behind me! Although I think I'd enjoy Fridays more if I only worked Monday through Thursday. Maybe someday! 

Here are some things that are currently bringing me joy...

The Olympics

I love the Olympics. Almost as much as I love Shark Week, but that's a different story. Gymnastics is my FAVORITE event. Hands down. I prefer the women's events over the men's events, but I'll watch them both. I'll probably even check out rhythmic gymnastics, too. I also like watching track, but it gives me anxiety when watching the 400m or the 4x400 relay. Most likely because those are the races that gave me anxiety in high school. Anyway, I'll probably take a peek at swimming, synchronized swimming, and diving. If I have a chance I'll check out some rowing, too. We'll see how much I'm actually able to watch!

A New Book

I have always been responsible with my money. Ever since I was young I've had a knack for saving, which was evident every time I'd pull out my pink and purple tin box filled with Christmas and birthday money. Since I didn't really have things to buy other than comic books and candy bars, my cash stash grew. In my recent years I've been a little more frivolous with my money, but I'm toning down the spending and tapping into my saving ways once again. Starting with a book by Dave Ramsey called The Total Money Makeover. I have yet to crack it open (my parents gave it to me yesterday), but I'm anxious to get into it and learn some new things. 

A Good Hair Day

When my hair is healthy it looks nice when it is in its natural state - straight. Since I need a trim, but am refusing to get one, I've been wearing my hair pulled up in a bun most days with my bangs pulled to the side because straight hair doesn't look as good when it needs to be cut. My ombre hair tends to look the best when it's curled (and it hides the fact that I need my hair trimmed), so I've been taking the extra time in the morning to give my hair a little wave. The best part of this hair routine is that the only product I put on it is a little Bumble & Bumble Styling Lotion (the "lotion" part is misleading because it's actually a spray and not so much of a lotion). It holds the curl all day, but it still keeps my hair touchable and movable. A HUGE plus. Anyway, I'm having a good hair day and that makes me feel like a million bucks!
