It only seems right to bring in the weekend with a post title courtesey of Enrique Iglesias. Haha. Although every time I hear that song it puts me in BodyPump mode because it’s a triceps track. I just want to yell out “singles.” Okay, so let’s actually discuss the relevancy of the title. This post is going to feature a random assortment of things that I’m really liking right now.
Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire
I have probably listened to this song at least 50 times since downloading it last week.
Everybody stands, as she goes by
Cause they can see the flame that’s in her eyes
Watch her when she’s lighting up the night
Nobody knows that she’s a lonely girl
And it’s a lonely world
But she gon’ let it burn, baby, burn, baby
This girl is on fire
Download it. Love it. And be on fire.
My Bulldogs are ranked number 5 and are 4-0 going into this weekend’s home game against rival Tennessee. So wish I could be in Sanford Stadium for the game but I’ll be cheering them on from Charlotte.
Delicious, nutritious meals that I don’t have to cook.
I was provided with samples of Custom Fit Meals this week (through the gym…not the blog) and while I love to cook, it was pretty amazing to have this on hand for lunch and dinner when I arrived home late and starving. More details about the company and food soon. I was very impressed and will definitely be paying for the service in the future.
Dove sent me samples of their Clinical Protection deoderant to test. I am so picky about deodorant and it’s hard for me to find something that keeps me fresh AND dry. While this didn’t provide 24-hour protection for me (well, actually I wouldn’t know because I shower 2-3 times a day anyway!), it did keep me nice and dry for the workday and through evening workouts. What I liked most about the product is that it does not include the aluminum chloride or alcohols that have been known to irritate skin. If you want to check it out here is a $2 off coupon that I found on their website!
In the past week I have had two extraordinary customer service experiences. One with Apple after my iPhone caught on fire on the charger. Seriously, the charger melted into the phone and left black char marks on my phone. They replaced my out of warranty iPhone at no cost with no questions asked. And the second with my homeowners insurance company, Safeco. They are replacing my entire roof and repairing drywall in my bathroom due to storm damage. The local loss specialist has been so nice to work with. I feel so grateful for their assistance.
Side note, if you are an Apple person…use the Cloud! I recently started using the Cloud and was able to get my new phone, turn it on, back up from the Cloud and it was literally just like I had the same exact phone. All of my text messages and contacts were there, all of my icons were in the same place and my browsing windows were even all still open in Safari. It was a very painless process to transition phones and I never even had to connect my phone to my laptop.
What’s making you sing, “Baby I like it?” 🙂
