Happy Friday people! How was your week?
This Friday is ALL about my baby brother (well not so much a baby anymore-but to me he will always be) is GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL TODAY!
I am so proud of him I can't stand it. He did it. He did it with challenges that most people wouldn’t have been able to overcome. Asperger’s Syndrome is a form of autism that impacts the social part of the brain and he has gone through so much in his life. BUT he DID IT! Not only is he graduating, but with honors and a citizenship award! He is literally the smartest and funniest guy i know and I KNOW he will do great things like he always has. I wrote all about his super inspiring journey here.
As a recap to last week’s post. We caught Otter (our feral female kitty) and tried to catch Brownie (the male) but he wasn't having it.
Instead we caught a trash panda (aka a raccoon). He was MEAN! Jake had to get a VERY long pole to unhook the trap to release it. I had no idea how aggressive they were! SCARY!
But good news is our sweet girl is fixed and will no longer be burdened with having more litters!
The group that fixed her is Operation Catnip in Richmond. Guys, they did a wonderful job with her and all the other cats getting fixed. They are non-profit and operate on donations only. So I HIGHLY recommend donating to this organization to help out their good deeds on decreasing the cat population!
She is doing better now and back to her old self! 😀
What are you up to this weekend?
Well, whatever you do this weekend be safe, eat lots of great food, be active, and have fun!
Currently craving: all things breakfast like this!
& This decadent chocolate smoothie from I Heart Vegetables (another fabulous Virginia Blogger)
This week was a mixture of CrossFit, Spinning, and running! I took a couple of weeks off from running after all of our races and I missed it! Again, still in disbelief that I am a runner.
I am all about the kettle bell this week folks! I had a killer workout the other day doing this routine:
Favorite Fluff: Max (duh)
I am loving this breezy weekend warrior outfit!
Favorite Weird Obsession of the Week:
I dont know about you, but I tend to have at least one random obsession per week. You know, that random link on your news feed that leads you down a very long internet rabbit hole and you have a hard time coming up for air…and before you know it you are expanding your book list to include all of the books Rory Gilmore read in the series.
So now I am reading A Place of Greater Safety. So far so good!
