It's the weekend, YES! Although it's going to be just as busy as the week, it is still welcomed.
I've spent this week working on many demanding tasks, but for a bit of fun I through in a 30-Day Plank Challenge. I didn't plan it, I just thought, I've never completed one, let's try this again. I am so excited, we are now on day 4! I've invited everyone I know and don't know on social media to join. I've had some takers and we are all still on task. I have also been recording short videos of me doing the planks (as requested by one of the challenge takers) and posting them on social media. Last night my husband was home early so he joined me in the video. He had previously declined to join the challenge, but last night he hopped on the video with me. He couldn't take just holding the position quietly, so he started singing. It was so funny. But he did it, of course in telling him what to do I did not focus on myself and I was out of alignment a bit. But that's okay, I'm learning to feel the move because I can't see myself while I'm filming the little video. The important thing is I have started and thankful others have joined me. There is power in numbers. Besides, the more people I have to be accountable to the more likely I will stay on task on those days I just don't feel like.
Well, in addition to it being a welcomed Friday, it's a Color Play Friday! Actually, it's a bright and yummy Color Play Friday today. Don't know what CPF is all about, well head on over to Lorinda at Laurel, Poppy and Pine or Trina at In An Otter Life for all the details. You know the rules and such, and next week's picture, you're welcome to join us.
I was so happy to see the photo chosen for this week's CPF! I LOVE Starbursts!! I like the tropical flavors. I don't care as much for the original flavor packet. Whenever I buy a pack I eat the flavors I like and then give my husband the ones that I don't like. I think the flavors are so delicious. The picture makes me just want to run out and buy a bag. Saturday is my eat anything day, soooooooo. TeeHee
There's an exciting event happening with this week's CPF.

I had 3 color palettes done but could not decide on one. So I called my husband over and told him to pick one. I had a palette with 5, 6, and 8 colors. After some discussion we both decided we really liked the 8 colors best. So I gave it a shot.
