  1. Summer Fridays~ 
    I’m not sure if your company does this (my husband’s does not)… but at Tory Burch, we get summer fridays. For us that means a half day on the Fridays from Memorial Day to Labor Day πŸ™‚ This week was also Employee Appreciation Week, so we have off the whole day today!! It’s great. Eric said – “it’s strange, apparently during the summer it’s acceptable to only work 35 hours/ week.” He’s just jealous.
  2. Barry’s Bootcamp~ 
    My coworker is obsessed with the Kardashians (yea, it’s kind of strange), so we had to visit Barry’s Bootcamp which is down the street from our office. She does workout classes all the time at her gym, but I only run, so I was kind of nervous. Also, the class was called “Hardcore Abs” and neither of us work our abs that much. We thought we would die. The class was super fun though (and we get a 20% Tory Burch discount), and included tons of treadmill sprinting and incline jogs. My abs are very sore today though….
    I’m working on finding a gym for the winter…. if I get home at 7, it will be too dark to run outside and usually too cold… same for trying to run in the morning… but it’s still summer! No need to worry about that for a while πŸ™‚

  4. DIY for the weekend~ Sock Monkey 
    So many of my friends are pregnant lately! Thought I would make some of these for gifts πŸ™‚ Sock Monkeys are always perfect gifts (even for adults, sometimes) and a bunch of different colors sounds great!
