Happy first day of spring, everyone! It’s finally here! Business has been picking up at the running store I work at, which shows that there are a lot of people out there who are excited for spring, too. And, it’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Clare and Heather to share five things that I’m really loving this week.
#1. It’s spring! Finally! I planted a bunch of tulips that I bought last fall as bulbs and forgot to plant. I started forcing them inside and plunked them in the ground yesterday. Can’t wait for my pretty orange tulips to pop up and bloom!

Check out these leggings! Found them at Athleta.
#2. Finding snazzy new leggings. This is what I feel like on a daily basis when I see photos on social media of cute leggings. P.S. Let’s follow each other on Instagram so you can show me your cute leggings and I can covet them.
#3. My desk jungle. The hubby took me to the orchid show and sale at the Chicago Botanic Garden last weekend and I added a couple more to my collection. Got my first Paph (Paphiopedilum, or lady slipper orchid). She’s so pretty! Loving her speckled leaves.
#4. Raspberry Chocolate Truffle coffee It’s the best, I tell you! The best! I’m all about flavored coffee and it is seriously my favorite coffee right now and probably will remain so until fall when I start drinking pumpkin coffee again.
#5. I’m running Ragnar! I’m officially registered to be on a Ragnar team with some really fantastic Chicago running bloggers like Sara, Suz, Mo, Eric, and Lauren. It’s a dream team, I tell you. So excited. P.S. Thank goodness it’s a 12 person team or I would die.
What’s the one workout gear item you go nuts over?
Definitely leggings for me. Running shoes are a close second.
What are you SO EXCITED about lately?
Have you ever run a Ragnar? Advice?
