Life Lately

Hi there! Just checking in on whats been going on in my life that past few days!

Saturday I ran another 5k, this one benefiting Cystic Fibrosis. One of my friends here in town lost her friend at age 22 from CF. My roommates and friends ran/walked and it was fun!


I really thought I was going to walk this one... but that's not how it happened!



The race was a little chillier than the last race I did.


 
I still managed to finish in 28:32 (pretty much). This is incredible because a) I had a sinus infection and b) I had not run in  2 weeks. My roommates said it looked like I was sprinting. I am super competitive so you better bet I was pumped that I had such a good time!

After the race, Tyler and I went into Champaign and I just HAD to have froyo. It was super delicious!

Do you follow me on instagram??? @charlotteperrow!! please do!

Sunday was just spent by our friends pool. I desperately neeeeeed sun.

Last night when I got home from work, I had a package from my mom. A few weeks ago at work, I overcame a huge obstacle and accomplished a very big goal (I am thrilled!!) and my mom sent me these goodies and this card! If you have followed along my adventure, you know I don't love work 100% but this made it much better!! Thanks, Mom!


I adore Hand Picked and Just the Thing! They have stores in Columbia and a few other places around SC. They are my go-to stores for jewelry!

THEN, I got to Tyler's last night and he had brought home flowers.... just because.


Why is he so sweet? Definitely a keeper!

So, there you have the past few days. Nothing crazy, just normal life in Illinois.

How was your weekend?

Ta ta,

Ahhh, I love those earrings! Handpicked and Just the Thing are my go-to jewelry stores, too. I could literally spend every penny I make in Just the Thing. Sometimes I have to stop myself from doing that.

Hope you have a good rest of the week!
