This past week via Instagram!

I noticed that my Five on Friday posts were basically just recapping the prior week, and all were usually things I posted to IG. So... I decided to just title my blog post accordingly ;) So if you follow me on Instagram, I apologize if some of these are repeats! But here is a look at a few of this past week's happenings!

A first for me this past week? Making bread from scratch!! I don't know why, but I have always been nervous to try. And something about yeast weirds me out. lol. But... my rolls actually turned out pretty good!! I found a simple recipe online and then I added Sea Salt and Rosemary and oh man, they were delicious! I'm thinking about sharing the recipe, if anyone is interested! 

It's been 2 months since I joined the gym. It's crazy to think that much time has gone by already because I remember that first week of working out, like it was yesterday!! I felt like I would never get to a point that I actually enjoyed it. But, I was impatient. I've since learned that I'm capable of a lot more than I give myself credit for. I actually have an entire post about this, so I'll stop here as not to repeat myself ;)

You guys!! Spring has officially arrived!!! And to me, that just means that we're one step closer to Summer. I'm already picturing lots of BBQ's, beach days, park days, adventures in the city, picnics... etc. I should probably back up, though, because that's still a ways off. Spring can be really hit or miss here in Seattle. I know that lots of rain still awaits us, unfortunately. But I do know that I am planning to take advantage of every sunny day from here on out!!

I actually don't go to Target that much, believe it or not. The closest Target is about 25 minutes away, so I usually end up just shopping online. However, the other morning I had this crazy urge to go. So after Bennett got on the bus for school, I decided to skip my work out and me and the Little went wandering the isles of Target and I now I'm totally inspired to add an "office nook" to our bedroom. I already have a desk, chair, lamp and shelving picked it. My Husband is sorta-kinda on board with the idea, so hopefully we'll get movin' on it soon!! #targetdoesitagain

I got my March Ipsy Glambag!! I'm not going to do an official post for it this month, but I really loved what I got! The BareMinerals Lipstick and the NYX Eyeshadow are my favorites this month!! I am still surprising myself at how much interest I've taken in makeup lately. Weird. But cool.

So what were the highlights, or lowlights of your week?! And what do you have planned for the weekend?

Love that picture from Target! Moms aren't the only one that can have fun with those red shopping carts! ;) How did you feel about your Ipsy this month? I wasn't thrilled, so next month is my "deciding month." Basically if it sucks, I'm canceling, haha.
