Five on Friday + TIU Giveaway!

Happy Friday ladies- It's Friday + a 3 day weekend is ahead, this makes me pretty happy. It's going to be a good day…. Perfect ending to a great week.
We drove to Denver for a night to spend time with friends and family celebrating a friend and his college graduation. It was a quick trip but we had so much fun. Once we got there, we went and rode the Alpine Slide, it was a first for me and so much fun. We had to do it again! It was such a good trip. 

I got it! If you remember, I put this on my birthday wishlist. My mom gave me some birthday money early and I had a 20% coupon from Beauty.com, so I went for it. I just got it in this week, but I will definitely plan a post about it once I've used it for a little bit. 

Dustin started a new job this week. Well, he actually went back to work at the machine shop he used to work at. He tried to stick it out at his other job until we move, but the 12+ hours everyday, Saturdays and lately Sundays, getting up before 4am each day plus other stuff there was not worth it anymore. He was exhausted all the time, had zero time for life and was miserable. This week has already been AMAZING. We are on the same schedule now and I feel like I have my husband back. 

We ran the Warrior Dash Saturday morning. We had a lot of fun! A few people have asked me about it and what I thought. You can look at their website here and see all of the obstacles. We had fun and I would do it again, it wasn't hard to me at all really. If we didn't have to hit the road right after, we wanted to do it again. Now obviously you would need to be a little prepared for it, but if you are active and workout semi-regularly at least, you could definitely do it! Dustin did Tough Mudder last year, so he was kind of disappointed with Warrior Dash but it doesn't even compare to Tough Mudder. I really want to do Tough Mudder next! I'm waiting on the pictures from the photographers, I should have some action pics soon. 

I teamed up with some seriously awesome ladies for this months giveaway, which I love. I've been doing the bikini challenge with Kristal and if you want results, join in. I adore Karena and Katrina for so many reasons, I love that the workouts aren't super intense and time consuming. They work though! This is a great prize package, don't miss out. Make sure to check out the other ladies too, their links are below the pic. You'll love them too!

Winning entry will be verified so please be honest.

  10. Yay, you got your Clarisonic! I'm sure you will love it. And, that's great about your husband's job transition. We are going through something similar over here (again ... for the third time in a YEAR), but it all works out for the best. Glad you both are back on the same schedule. Have a great holiday weekend!

  11. No way! You have to look at my wish list today...I definitely want a Clarisonic! I look forward to hearing what you think about yours! Good job on the Warrior Dash! And I so wish Kevin would quit his job...same thing...SO stressful! We're trying to figure out a way to make that happen. He would be so much happier. His stress is really affected us and I'm ready to it to be over. Have a great weekend!!!

  14. Hey Mia! Glad you survived your race with no injuries! Can I just say that you look super hot and bad ass in that pic where you are all muddy with the medal! Great job! Congrats on your Clarisonic! I LOVE mine! I actually bought it a few years ago, used it a couple of times and was not impressed so I stopped using it. Thankfully, a few months later I gave it a second chance and I'm glad because now I really love it. I use Philosophy Purity with it and it makes my face supersoft and moisturized. I am eager to hear your opinion on it. Okay, well not that I have left you a SUPER long comment (sorry) I will stop writing. Haha! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! xo

  23. I loved my Clarisonic till it started to make me break out! I was using it too much and using a alpha hydroxy acid so I think I was over exfoliating. It does make your skin feel amazing though!

  24. Yay, Mia has a Mia! :) I can't wait to hear what you think of it. I hope your skin loves it! Those pics from the Warrior Dash make you look so hardcore!! hehe :) You go girl! Enjoy your holiday weekend!
