What’s The Best Thing to Happen to You This Week?

Yesterday we wrote about the best thing to happen to you this week, but before I get into that I want to say thank you to everyone who joined the August Healthy Living / Fitness Blogger Challenge. We’re in the final days and I’m sad that it’s almost done, but I’m also so very happy that so many of you joined in and really stuck to it! I know that I’ve been having a hard time writing every day, so I admire your perseverance. I’m also really glad that I got to meet so many great people through this challenge – I’ll definitely have to host one again (is next month too soon? do we need a month off? or do we keep the momentum going?).

Ok – the best thing to happen to me this week? BOSTON!!! I’m typing this as fast as I can from my iPhone to post because I’ve already boarded a plane heading to Boston to spend the weekend with my hubby!


My awesome MIL came over and is staying the weekend to look after my girls and I’ll be driving home to Ontario, Canada on Monday. I’m kinda excited bc this is the LONGEST we’ve been kid-free since June 2005!

What’s the best thing to happen to you this week?

    Enjoy Boston…and your hubby!

    As for me, I wouldn’t really call this the “best” thing to happen to me, but it is life-changing: http://sheslosingit.net/2012/08/23/my-world-changed-today/
