for frequent highlights, follow me @robina_black

highlights from my week:
- that basset & her faces never fail to crack me up! i'm sure she gets annoyed at me constantly snapping photos of her, but sometimes they are just so priceless! this one has had me laughing all week!

- we snagged a bucket of strawberries from the local berry patch! we love going to little fruit stands or farmers markets! something about it just says summer! (so does the 90degree temps) we also snagged some sweet potatoes & blackberry jam! yum!

- on friday, our HR lady asked me to run a check for her & we normally don't do a check run on fridays for the company she needed it for. so my coworker told her to sweet talk me & that my favorite things are peanut butter oreos & milanos. next thing i know, HR brings over a whole pack of Reese's oreos & double chocolate milanos to my desk! best friday ever! and the whole department enjoyed some treats! 

- we ran our first 5k on Saturday! considering we only got through about 4 1/2 weeks of our c25k app, i think we did pretty well! when i scheduled it, i didn't take into account life & how hectic it is for us lately. so we got a little behind in our training but we didn't let it discourage us! we planned to walk/jog the race and that's exactly what we did! it was a great experience & a lot of fun! plus we enjoy running more now & plan to continue!

- i got a haircut this weekend & was trying to remember the last time i got my haircut. you wanna know when it was? last July - a year ago! you know your life is too busy when...  but it does feel SO much better just to have all of those dead ends off! and even though it's been a year, i still hate spending money on a haircut! #accountingmajorprobs
