Five Things I’m Excited About

Hello friends! I hope you have been having a great weekend. Mine has unfortunately been spent doing lots of studying for my exam that is Tuesday morning. Blahh haha…oh well.

There are some things that I am really excited that overshadow this studying, so I thought I would share them with you today!

1. Chris comes to visit on Tuesday!! I cannot wait! It’s been 8 weeks since we’ve seen each other…which is wayyyyyy too long. He will be here until Sunday, so I’m going to get to be with him for a really nice chunk of time :). YAY!

2. I got a call on Friday from the dermatologist and they told me that my biopsy came back fine! Apparently the mole they removed was a blue mole? Yea, I didn’t really know what that was, so naturally I googled it. I found out that blue moles are rather rare, but generally non-cancerous. Their dark color (I had thought it looked black) comes from the pigment cells lying farther below the surface of the skin than the pigment cells do of normal moles. I’m really thankful that the biopsy came back fine…but I am still annoyed that the suture they gave me is preventing me from really exercising. I’m ready to challenge myself again!

3. Speaking of challenging myself, I signed up for Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp!!! I am SO pumped to be doing this and can’t wait to do the workouts. This first week I won’t really be able to do them because of my leg, but as soon as I get that stitch out on Friday you better believe I’ll be exercising :).


4. I finally ordered PB2! I’ve been hearing about and seeing this stuff all over the blog world lately. I finally purchased some and it arrived a couple of days ago! I’m pretty much already in love with it haha. Obviously it can’t replace my beloved real peanut butter, but it’s definitely a great alternative and I’ve already enjoyed it several different ways!


**I ordered my PB2 from iherb and if you use this coupon code: HUJ190 ( enter it in the shopping cart before checkout) you will receive an instant $5 discount on your first iHerb order!**

5. And finally, I discovered on Pinterest yesterday that Converse is out with a new pair of Chuck Taylor lo-tops that I desperately want! They have polka dots….I’m in love!


And I’m off to study some more…hope you have a great day!


What’s something you’re excited about right now?

    LOVE those shoes, I also need to try PB2 so I’m psyched to hear what you think and yesss for the safe mole too!

  18. Oh my goodness! I am so excited about all of those things, now, too!! I loveee PB2, I am so happy that you’ll get to spend time with Chris, hooray for your biopsy results (I bet that feels so relieving!), and those shoes are AMAZING. I am just going to remind myself that I am poor…haha. I can’t afford ’em!

  19. YAY! Looks like you have some great things to be excited about πŸ™‚

  20. What do you do with that PB2??

    I’m excited that in one week I’ll be on semi-spring-break! I have classes at two different schools, so officially I have no spring break, but for two weeks in a row I’ll have lighter loads which at this point is exciting enough for me πŸ˜‰

    • You mix it with water to create a “peanut butter”. It has the consistency of peanut butter and tastes almost the same as peanut butter (obviously not exactly the same). It’s delicious and since it’s only 45 calories for 2 tbsp it’s a great alternative to regular pb sometimes!

  21. Have a great time with Chris!

  22. What a positive post! Love it πŸ™‚ Sounds like you have an awesome week coming up…enjoy! And goodluck on the exam!

  23. I don’t normally like sneakers, but I think I might be in love with those polka-dot converse! So cute. Good luck on your exam! It sounds like you have a great week coming up to help get you through. πŸ™‚

    Right now I’m super excited about going shopping for a new dress for my university’s modern languages ball. I haven’t gone shopping, not to mention bought a dress, in ages!

    • Haha, converse are pretty much the only sneakers that I like…and the polka dots just make me smile :). Thank you!! Have so much fun shopping for a dress and going to a ball! That sounds like so much fun!

  24. Lindsay, Give Chris a hug from me. I hope you two have a great time together. Thinking of you Both : )

  25. PB2 is SO addicting!!! Love it! And also love htat you’re part of bootcamp. πŸ™‚

    Hope you’re having an AMAZING time with Chris right now.
