instaweek

for frequent highlights, follow me @robina_black


highlights from my week:
-i had to work over the weekend & almost every week night! but i am very thankful that i can work the extra hours from home! chai lattes & a cute owl background don't hurt either!
-one night for dinner my husband made us spicy black bean burgers! this is one of my favorite meals & topping it with guac is even better!
-our dog is 100% hound! one morning she caught & killed a mole in our backyard and BROUGHT IT INTO OUR HOUSE! i was the lucky one to find it....
-i recently signed up for a one year subscription to Real Simple magazine! my first issue came this week & i am so in love with this magazine already!


other
-i worked 61 hours total last week! to say that i was exhausted is the understatement of the century! this saturday my husband & i slept in late, watched movies, and just relaxed! it was so nice & MUCH needed!

-yesterday our church family commissioned our church plant & the 2 pastors! in two weeks, our core group for the church plant will start meeting on sunday mornings together! exciting times!

- ALSO there is still time to enter the conscious box giveaway to get a box full of healthy treats sent straight to your door! :)
