Marvelous in My Monday (MIMM): Rewarding Weekend Adventures

Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

I'm linking up this morning for the first time with Katie over at Healthy Diva Life to share some of what's Marvelous in My Monday :)
Over the weekend, I was able to check quite a few more boxes off of my Bad Ass Beautiful challenge bingo card:

On Saturday morning, I woke up bright & early and biked downtown to volunteer for Nashville PRIDE 2013. It was buckets of fun! I made some new friends and got some stellar crafting advice from the nicest drag queen I've ever met (e.g., instead of hot glue, use E6000 on crafting projects, it'll hold rhinestones on anything!). Here's some pictures from the morning:

The Nashville PRIDE app had some fun photo filters built into it...
I made some new volunteer friends...
and some adorable animal friends as well!
I also got to partake in a little retail therapy after my volunteer shift was over and stumbled across this fabulous Mexican basket handbag at one of the little fashion truck vendors, Trunk.
I feel so lucky to have been apart of such a love-filled and joyful celebration and incredibly rewarded by the entire experience. I can't wait until my next volunteering adventure in July (hint hint, it involves loving on some of those little furry friends I got to hang with on Saturday!)

This Father's day I didn't get to hang out with Daddy dearest (the lucky duck is in Italy with Mama right now!), but he was in my thoughts all day. I certainly wouldn't be the woman I am today without that marvelous man to look up to.
Getting zen, I spent over an hour alone with no technology yesterday afternoon and followed that up with a great Bad Ass Beautiful circuit workout to cross two more boxes off my challenge To Do list, and all that combined with a scrumptious Southwest Scramble for breakfast has got me feeling pretty Marvelous this Monday ;)

My breakfast scramble consisted of 2 full eggs and red & green diced up bell peppers.
Thanks for reading, you can check out some more MIMM posts over at Healthy Diva Life!


  1. SO happy you joined in!! Thank you for spreading the MIMM love!!

    Loving that bad ass challenge calendar, such a cute idea!

    And super jealous of your parents being in Italy! One place I want to visit one day for sure!

    Happy week to you!

  2. Thanks for the warm words of welcome darlin' :)

    My brother gets to live in Italy full time, so he's the one I'm really jealous of. I've only visited across the pond once and I can't wait to go back!

    Have a wonderful week!
