Hello and happy Friday first let me say Happy Veterans Day to all the wonderful brave men and women who served our country or continue to serve. I thank you and appreciate you more than you will ever know.
How has your week been? Mine was a short work week because I had Monday and Tuesday off. So Friday came quickly and that is a good thing. I have quite a few favorites to share with you this week.
On Tuesday I had lunch with my sister and my niece and a good friend, in nearby Athens. We also went to the Dollar Tree there to check out their Christmas ornaments and decorations. The Dollar Tree in Athens, which is about 20 minutes from us, is the best one around. We found several things and had such a good time together.
Later that day I went in a totally different direction to Sevierville to eat dinner with a friend from Pennsylvania. She was in town for the annual souvenir gift buying show and we met and ate dinner. It was so good catching up with her. Before having dinner I had about an hour to kill so I ran by the TJ Maxx in Sevierville. I love this store it is one of my favorite TJ Maxx stores. We ate dinner at Harpoon Harry’s. I love their Crab Rangoon sushi. Sevierville is about an hour and a half drive for me so I got home really late but it was totally worth it.
I have been working on this scarf. It is a very easy knit. One I can grab and take with me and not worry about a pattern. It is just K2, YO, K2tog. I love the colors and I am going to be a little sad to finish it but I can’t wait to wear it. It’s one that you can wrap around you without it being bulky.
I finally broke down a few weeks ago and downloaded Beachbody On Demand. I had been thinking about it for awhile. Since May I have lost 30 pounds. I was really needing to add some exercise into my daily routine. I have been doing Beachbody for a couple of weeks and I love it. You can download it for a month, three months or a year. I did the year. My nieces have it and they love it. It is a little costly about $130.00 for an entire year, but there are 41 different workout programs and each one has a different set of workouts. I am doing a couple of the country line dance routines and 30 minutes passes by before I know it. They are so much fun. There is also a body sculpting one that works specific muscle groups. I ordered one of those small Pilates balls to use with this workout. I downloaded the app so I can take it anywhere with me. If I am traveling and want to do a workout in my hotel room I am able to without going to a hotel gym, which I am not always comfortable doing. There are also recipes and food plans, I haven’t tried any of those yet because I like my own plan.
This is the Pilates ball I ordered from Amazon. It is small but there are lots of uses for it with many of the workouts on Beachbody.
I ordered this Shacket from Walmart online. I have been wanting one of these with a plaid pattern. I was pleasantly surprised when I got this it is fairly heavy and can definitely be worn as a jacket. It is very toasty. I haven’t seen one like this in our local Walmart but you can find it online.
It seems like I am always on the lookout for face products. I saw this one on TikTok and the girl using it just loved it. Sometimes when I wash my face I wonder if I am getting all of the makeup off of it. This is a balm that you use first, and it sort of dissolves your makeup. You then follow with your regular face cleaning product. I am loving it and the good thing is you can find it at Walmart.
I wanted to give you an update on the press on nails that I used a few weeks ago. The blue ones I put on lasted for about two weeks with me only having to replace two of them. You get thirty in a pack so this was no big deal. They looked great and they are really easy to file down just like your natural nails. The only drawback is that when I took the press on nails off, my nails underneath looked TERRIBLE!!!!! they are pitted and weak and breaking like crazy. So I am not sure if everyone has this problem. But for my nails they are not a good thing. Maybe I shouldn’t have left them on as long as I did. I don’t think I will use them again unless it is just for a special occasion where I will only have them on for a day or two.
I hope you might find some of these useful. Have a wonderful weekend.
Love your day your way!!!!!
