6 Things I'm Loving Right Now, Vol. 13

How was your weekend? Mine flew as they all do. I spent some extra time at the gym: Spinning on Saturday, and a management shift today. It's a good thing I love my job!

Which brings me to today's post: A list of things I'm loving right now.

1) Long Runs

The struggle is real, friends. It's been so hard to stay focused on increasing my mileage. And it has nothing to do with the weather, which has been surprisingly conducive to excellent runs. Rather, I've been sick. And/or otherwise busy. I've had to sneak the miles in somewhat forcefully. But I never regret them, which is the best. My eyes are still on the prize (a Spring 25K).

2) Starbucks' Sumatra Dark Roast Coffee
I have been an iced coffee junkie lately. I'm never without a fresh pot, and I absolutely love Sumatra coffee from Starbucks. Now, I'm no coffee aficionado so don't ask me to be descriptive about why this bean is better than others. But I love it, it tastes good. So try it!

3) New Sunglasses
4) Short Hair

I lost my favorite sunglasses a few weeks ago, and have been looking for the perfect replacement. While these aren't the exact same pair, they're dang close which makes me happy. Combine that with a freshly chopped 'do, well...I might be taking more selfies in sunglasses these days.

5) One Plus One by Jojo Moyes

I'm on a mission to read more books. I got back into the habit of using Goodreads to find potentials, and subsequently declared a "15 books in 2015" end goal. This one will be my third, and I expect to finish it soon. It's a quick read. Very good. Just what I need. The plot isn't too thick, the characters are interesting. There's a developing relationship, which always gets me. Next up? The Girl on the Train or Yes, Please. Whichever I can get my hands on first. Both are currently hot at the library.

6) MacBook Air
When I was in college, I saved up my pocket change (literally) for an Elsa Peretti heart necklace from Tiffany. It took forever, and I'll never forget what it felt like to walk in such an iconic store with enough money to make a purchase. I was fiercely proud of myself for sticking to it, and I wore that necklace for years after. Significance? I took the same approach with the MacBook Air that I am currently typing on. A Daily Dose of Fit doesn't bring in bags of money, but I do make a small amount on sponsored opportunities that fit my message. That cash got stashed, and I got a new computer. Super, super in love with it.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a book to read (after I fold some laundry).
