To Sparkle Punch...

That is the question

High Five for Friday: January 4


Oof, back to work this week! 😭 Let’s see what brought the sparkle:

  • On Friday, I had a restorative yoga + acai bowl date with my friend Alana, who is an utter gem! Although we went to high school together, we’ve only discovered that we’re basically the same person over the past few years. (Full disclosure: Alana was waaaay cooler than me in high school! 😂)  She’s  been one of my biggest cheerleaders since I started this blog, and it was great to chat IRL for a change! 
Baby’s first açaí bowl!

  • I don’t know about you, but I hate New Year’s Eve. So this year, rather than staying home and being annoyed, I went to a get-together at the yoga studio near my house! I was sort of scared about it because I wouldn’t know anybody there, but I still went, and it was great! The evening started out with a yoga class (featuring live, acoustic music!), then we did a few journaling exercises, made a body scrub, and ended with a meditation. (The new year actually started during our meditation, which was pretty cool!) It was such a nice, relaxing way to end the year and usher in a new one! Last year, I was super bitter about the new year (why, I don’t even remember), so I’m glad I’m not feeling that way this year!

  • In that vein, I sometimes struggle anxiety-wise with time off, but this year, I LOVED it and really felt like I made the most of it by balancing fun activities and socializing with chill time. The only problem is that I was then smote by anxiety on Tuesday afternoon, as I had to go back to work on Wednesday. This led to me signing up for a random yoga class like 30 minutes before it started on Tuesday night! I was kind of in a daze through most of it, but there was some nice chanting toward the end that helped to mellow me out some. Kristin, upon hearing how I dealt with this bout of anxiety, was like, “Oh, I figured it would be BoRhap, but I guess yoga works too!” LOL


  • Look at these adorable Christmas cards from my dear blogger friends Lisa, Bri, and Mica! Mica wrote the sweetest message in hers, which I will definitely treasure. These ladies are the best! 💕💕
  • Lastly, I don’t even drink LaCroix, but I somehow stumbled upon these tweets, and they killed me. I wanted to single out just one from the list, but I love them all! 😂😂

Hope you have a great weekend! xo
