Virtual coffee date + a HUGE dermalogica giveaway!

Happy Friday!!  I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to a fantastic weekend.  I can feel the excitement for summer through my Instagram feed and I hope that you have enjoying the sunny, warm weather where you are.  If not, I’m sure it’s on the way soon.

If we were having coffee today, here are some things I would tell you.

  • I am stoked to have my bike all dialed in with the perfect fit so I can ride!  I met with Chris yesterday who did the fit and gave this newbie some direction, like what “ease into it” really means.  Now let’s hope I don’t fall going 0 MPH.
  • It has been sunny and blue skies all week and of course the day I get to ride it’s cloudy.  Figures, ha but I’ll still go and enjoy every second of it.  I’m really happy I get to move my legs.

  • Happiness is finding the same kind of flowers Mike woke me up on our wedding day with.
  • I would tell you how much I LOVE our house cleaner!!  It still drives me crazy to sit around while someone else cleans my house but it feels to good to have it all done and not stress about overdoing it on the ole paw.  Plus Mike is really happy so it’s totally worth it.

  • Snack plates rock.  They are even better when served on a paper plate.  It’s a good thing I never claimed to be classy.

  • I would tell you all about how I am completely blown away by the thoughtfulness of the folks at Mizuno.  They heard about this broken runner and not only are they very supportive, they sent a care package of gear to cross train in!  You know a brand rocks when they tell you “our #1 concern is that you get healthy.”  My heart is so full. <3

  1. Thats a hard one…probably the Body Hydrating Cream since my skin is SOOO dry however I would love the SPF cream as well.

    Also, I have been considering trying bicycling. So please share with us how you are liking it in comparison to running in a few weeks.


  2. Most definitely the SPF 50 sunscreen–my blonde, blue eyed, white girl bod needs all the help it can get! 😉

  3. I am Irish and very fair skinned – and never want wrinkles. So the oil-free matte SPF50 sounds amazing!

  4. I would love to try the sunscreen! Always looking for a great new one.

  5. Oh, I’m really excited to try a customized sun block and the after sun lotion!!!! Oooh fingers crossed. I’m almost out of my sunscreen so this would be perf!!! Glad you’re taking the time to heal chica. XO

  10. The oil free matte facial sunblock would make my life better!! I can’t find a sunblock that doesn’t make my face all oily and broken out :(. I looked for this one at Ulta, when you recommended it, but they didn’t have it.

  11. After coming home to pizza face after being at the beach for a week and using oily sunscreen, I would love to try the oil free matte.

  12. Hydrating cream. My skin is ALWAYS so dry and I am forever on the hunt for great hydrating lotion/cream.

  13. I’d love to try the oil free matte sunscreen. I’m still in search of the perfect sunscreen to protect my face without feeling greasy or smelling weird!

  14. I’d love the facial SPF because I wear lotion with sunscreen in it every day bit can’t stand if it actually smells like sunscreen. Those flowers are so pretty and so sweet!

  22. I would love to try the after sun repair. On busy days, I run out of the house without putting any sun block on. This would be nice to have for those hectic days and I’m curious about it’s lavender scent too.

  28. I would LOVE to try the body exfoliating scrub and the body hydrating cream! My skin is so dry and thirsty even coconut oil soaks into my skin!

  29. The oil free matte SPF30 sound great. I grew up in Florida so now at my young age of 47 I worry about my skin even being exposed during every day activities outside.

  30. I would most love to try the facial SPF cream. I am ways searching for a good one!
