This week was calm and rewarding. It's Spring Break for students at the university I work at and I've definitely enjoyed the slowing of pace. 

I received my first graze box which I got for free. Graze is a snack box with healthy, nutritionist-approved treats. Look for a review within the next week.

I won $20 at a free for all yard sale. It was a collaborative church yard sale with thousands of free items, as well as free raffles. I won 20 bucks in cash, as well as stocked up on some pretty awesome items. 

I registered for the Color Run Atlanta. I've never been in a 5k, but I've already registered for two this year and I will be registering for a third some time next week. I won my entry into the Color Run on Facebook and Andre will participate with me, so I'm really excited to go. You can get $7 off your Atlanta ticket with code: Atlanta1

Since the weather has been so cooperative this week, and hardly any students are on campus, I was able to go outside and walk during my lunch break each day. It was amazing. I would walk for about 2.5 miles and still get a chance to eat a snack (because the walking curbed my appetite). It was great and so peaceful. It also meant that I got to go home right after work at 5 instead of staying for the gym. Hello, nap.

I was able to make a few people's days a little brighter. We hosted a baby shower for one of the women in our department this week, and it was also a co-workers birthday. I was able to get gifts for both women and hopefully brighten their day's, even slightly. 

How was your week?

    1. I had heard of Graze before, but never had real interest in it, but it was great. I actually posted a full review of it here: http://apaperarrow.blogspot.com/2015/03/graze-better-way-to-snack-plus-coupon.html

      And thanks, I'm very excited for it. You should find one locally and sign up!

  3. The Grazebox sounds amazing! I could use that in my life. I do pretty good when it comes to actual meals, but the snacks are what get me.
