Okay, can we start this post with a WTF on the Pokemon mania!?!? I feel like it’s all I’ve heard about all week long and I still don’t really even know what it all means! I’m just wondering how people have time to drop everything and Pokemon. One of our employees told me he was out until 3 a.m. playing Pokemon go and so were about a million other people last night. Are any of you playing? Help me understand! (I’m also praying Tanner doesn’t download the app because I may never see him again.)
I’ve had a busy, busy work week but it’s also been really fun. On Tuesday night I went to a special preview of the new Fabletics store that is opening this weekend at SouthPark Mall.
I got to check out the brand-new, fully-stocked store before the crowds hit
And I definitely did a little damage! This was my first time trying Fabletics and I love the pieces I brought home with me (also loved the price point). I’ll be sharing a post next week with all of my picks.
On Wednesday I was booked at the last minute for a photo shoot for a university interior project. They wanted a close up of my arms holding a volleyball up against a jersey. Apparently it’s going to be blown up to like 30-feet or something like that. It was an intense hour of posing with a volleyball. Haha. 😉
The jersey that the school provided was a large so it took a massive amount of clipping and taping to get a fitted look for the photo. When I was booked for it we thought the shot would be short-sleeved or sleeveless but apparently volleyball jerseys are long-sleeved to help with diving and floor burn. Makes sense to me!
Here’s a super secret preview. When the work drops I’ll be sure to share the final result!
On the food front, eats have been good this week! I made this layered sweet potato, spinach, chicken and avocado bowl with turmeric tahini dressing for lunch one day.
We loved, loved, loved these Coconut-Lemongrass Chicken Noodle Bowls.
Massaged kale salad with blueberries, tomatoes, radishes, sliced raw okra, toasted walnuts, turkey and turmeric tahini dressing.
Burger night is always a good night. Local grass-fed beef with an herb mayo I made from my herb plants. I served mine on my dad’s sourdough and it made for a tasty bun option! I grilled eggplant/pepper/onion skewers along with the burgers and made this tomato and cucumber salad with peach dressing on the side.
Remix salad from Namastay Kitchen. I mixed together our tahini balsamic and maple mustard dressings and added chicken and avocados.
Snackage. Iced coffee with homemade almond milk and apple slices with Wild Friends ridiculously addictive chocolate almond butter. It tastes like frosting. I had mixed emotions about the single-serving package. 😛
I’ve been craving smoothies thanks to our string of 95+ degree days. My current favorite combo is Premier Protein Chocolate Whey with Wild Friends Chocolate Protein+ Peanut Butter blended with almond milk, frozen banana and frozen strawberries. I’m giving away a tub of the Premier Protein Chocolate Whey over on Instagram. Go enter! 🙂
I have an appointment for a much needed brow wax and facial this afternoon and then tonight we have an event at the studio with the Charlotte Five. I hope y’all have a great Thursday evening!
