5 Little Grins Link Up [Week 7]

5 Little Grins


We'll go ahead and say it: Most people think Mondays suck / are the worst / should die a fire-y death. I'm sure you get the picture.

We've all had our fair share of bad Mondays and bad Tuesdays and just plain ol' bad days. Instead of focusing on the bad, what if we focused on the good things?

What if we focused on the little things that made us smile today, yesterday, last week? Could our whole attitude change? In time, would we find that we're having more good days than bad?

Cassandra, Paulina and I would love for you to join us on our weekly link up counting at least 5 things that made you smile in the last week. We could start our Mondays on this positive note!

Of course, this is all about encouragement, so hop on over to some other blogs and leave a positive note and make a new friend!
The Rules! (These are really just kind suggestions)

1. Follow your hosts: Cassandra, Raewyn, and Paulina!

2. Link up your post that includes 5-ish things that made you smile in the past week

3. Comment after you link up

4. Go visit some other blogs and make some friends!

5. Have fun, and don't forget to smile!!

Oh my lanta, I have this whole week off! 
That's not a grin, by the way. I was pretty disappointed at first...

1. This morning I am starting my first day of 3 months unlimited classes at this one fitness place. Not only does it have pole dancing and flexibility, but they have stretch and tone, zumba, yoga, bootcamp...and a salon. I'm stoked. 

2. Baking time!!!! I haven't had baking time in forever slash it has been TOO hot to have the oven on at our house all summer. So much baking this week, especially for Thanskgiving!! [Recipes on Thursday]

Note: This is not what I made...but I did USE this

3. My Restoration Hardware Down Comforter Slippers. SERIOUSLY. Such a great Christmas gift last year!! 

4. Infinity scarves. Why did it take so long for one to come into my life?

Funny face?

5. I made a lot of progress on cleaning our room and getting rid of old stuff, I hope that I can finish this week!! 

I promised Run or Dye pictures and I think we took some great ones :) My mom and I walked it while the boys ran. It took us about an hour to walk, which wasn't bad. I can't wait to see the professional photos but here are a few in the meantime...
