The cherry, of course, was Wed morning, when my phone decided to turn off and never turn back on. Support was very helpful and is shipping me a replacement phone free of charge. Unfortunately, the timing was the worst. I submitted the order for the replacement around 7pm on Wed and it took until Fri morning to process the order. So, even though it was shipped FedEx Overnight, it's not arriving until tomorrow because overnight from Fri doesn't include the weekend. Boooo.
At least I had the Bikini Series to help keep me somewhat sane. 👍

Highlights of the Week:
The new Sunshine Sculpt video
I'm not exactly sure why, but I really loved this video. Maybe it was just what my body needed on Tuesday, but it just felt so good and was a perfect warm-up for my run.
Project Fi Support
Even though it's taking FOREVER to get a replacement phone, my time with support was pretty painless. I chatted with someone online and the resolution was good enough for me. Jeff had some issues with it and wanted an upgraded phone instead of a refurbished phone of the exact same model I had before. I was perfectly OK with the refurbished phone, but he wanted to talk about it before I actually submitted my order. Hence, I wasn't able to order the replacement until Wed evening instead of Wed morning.
Chickpea Tomatillo Curry
We got a lot of tomatillos in our last Bountiful Basket, so I used some to make this recipe. It had cilantro (which Jeff hates) and curry (obviously), so this was just for me! I really enjoyed the flavor! I think I'm going to make some more to have for lunches throughout the week!
National Foam Rolling Day
It comes every year on May 11 (since 2015). To celebrate, I did some foam rolling before my morning workout, and wrote a post on the How's & Why's of Foam Rolling. You should check it out and the couple other bloggers that also linked up with a foam rolling post. And then, go give your foam roller some love and attention.
That's all I've got. Sorry for the lack of pictures; my phone is my primary camera. :)
Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Mother's day!
Here are a couple Mother's Day posts from this past week that I really loved and wanted to share with you.
