case of the mondays

It's such a strange feeling to get up for a full work week after having Christmas, New Years, and then MLK day so close together. Especially since I feel like I have been going like the energizer bunny with swim and dive team, other swim and dive lessons, shopping, making time for friends, and for myself... you know, that whole work/life balance!

As part of that 'work/life balance' thing, I got my butt up and to the gym for a 6 am spinning class. It was a great class, but I don't think I'll be posting any pictures of me in my padded cycling shorts!! Then I took my time getting ready for work and met my mom and nephew at Starbucks for some morning coffee. I totally lost track of time and texted my boss 5 minutes before I was supposed to be in that I would be late. He is kinda amazing and let me take an extra hour! So here I am, a work/life balancing master! I made it to the gym, spent some time with family, and was able to make it to work with a smile on my face!

As for my outfit and the title, this is the first time that I have really gotten some gems at a thrift store! My shirt and shoes were both purchased at Unique in Falls Church, VA. I really think I need to incorporate more second hand shopping into my life, after the 30 for 30 of course! I guess that falls into my save/spend balance that I really need to work on as well!
