Ten Day Challenge – Day Two {9 Loves}

1. My Friends.
I'm not going to name you one by one, because let's be real here, there is no possible way I could narrow it down to just nine. I would not be where I am now if it weren't for the amazing people that surround me. {And he is included in this because he is without a doubt my best friend. He knows me better than I know myself}


“When I find myself fading, I close my eyes and realize my friends are my energy”



2.  Peppermint Mocha Lattes from Starbucks & Peppermint Mocha Creamer by CoffeeMate

I probably keep CoffeeMate in business. Seriously. I'm obsessed. The good news is, I recently weaned myself from sugar AND coffee creamer. 

3. Children

Under the age of 5. They just melt my heart. One of my favorite sounds is a child laughing. I love watching them discover new things. I love watching them interact with their parents, there's something so amazing about they way they smile at them.

4. Fitness Magazines

Women's Health, Fitness, Runner's World. I.Can't.Get.Enough.

Sidenote: I also cannot throw magazines away. I just can't bring myself to do it.

5. My Iphone.

I would probably go as far as saying I probably couldn't live without it. Immediate panic sets in when I misplace it. It literally serves as my lifeline. {And yes, I know how that sounds. I'm perfectly okay with it.}

6. Running

Okay, maybe not all the time, but most of the time. It is the first thing I have felt I have physically succeeded at. It enabled me to lose 20 lbs 4 years ago and go from a size *deep breath* 14 to a 4. I am a competitive person but I am more competitive against myself than others. Running is one of those things that allows to you compete against others if you want to but for the most part you're just striving to break your own records. 

7. Quotes/Song Lyrics

Let's face it, music speaks when words fail

8. Elephants

It started in high school. Someone asked me what my favorite animal was and I responded that I didn't have one. They responded that, that was unacceptable. I wish I could tell you what happened next, but I honestly don't remember. I just remember Eustacia came into the picture. Eustacia was my first elephant. The collection grew from there. You know how people catch on that you like something and then they go totally overboard with getting you elephant themed things? Yeah, that happened. I have a plastic tote of elephants that I have no idea what I will do with but think that someday they'll end up in a nursery. 

9. Victoria's Secret Shine Serum

  1. I cannot for the life of me figure out why this damn thing is double spacing. I'm a blog virgin. I need pointers.
