Happy Friday to all you who actually have a work week. The summer doesn’t really need all the fanfare of Friday for me, but it still feels go to say it 😉 (That will be changing soon enough!) I really need to sit down with my mom this weekend and figure out exactly what I need to get for college and what we already have. I have a huge list I got from Her Campus which has everything you could possibly need, so that will help with remembering something I might forget just off the top of my head.
In other news, I am going to get checked at the oral surgeon tomorrow to make sure my wisdom teeth as healing up well. I can tell they are since the swelling has gone down and I look normal again. There are still twinges of soreness, but nothing bad and I can use a straw again so, really I am good 😉
I’m sure there is other stuff I can tell you to wrap up the week, but I can’t remember anything I else I wanted to tell you…I should write this stuff down! Eh, it’s okay though, enough rambling since this Friday Finisher is jam-packed! Try not to get overwhelmed with all the great posts this week 😉
Tuesday: Chocolate Peanut Buckwheat Cereal
Wednesday: Raw Balsamic Tahini Beet Noodles
Thursday: Nuzest And A Purple Ninja Smoothie Bowl

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ The new and improved and much more “professional” Strength and Sunshine will be up and live sometime nest week! Get pumped!
+ Listen up kids! My schedule is finally fixed! Yes! 30% of my stress was just lifted 😀 I can breathe! No more conflict and I will still be able to get in all my required classes 🙂 I emailed my adviser and she found an open World History class and I was able to run and sign up for and then drop my other conflicting class. Bonus…I only have one 50 minutes class on Friday 😉
+ I’m planning on cooking a family dinner for my mom, brother, and I on Sunday night! It will be a fun way to spend some last-minute time together while eating amazing food (that I get to cook all day! Yay!)
So tell me:
+ Tell me one good that happened this week!
+ What are you weekend plans? Any fun family gathering or parties to attend?
