Friday Favorites: 12/19/14

Whoa. Can we just talk about how Christmas is NEXT WEEK? I mean, OMG, when did that happen? And anyone want to run to Target for me. I swear every time I go, I think it is going to be my last time before Christmas and then I need one more thing. . . ‘Tis the season, right?

Anyway, Friday. Yes!! Fist pump. Winking smile

And time for Friday Favorites. . . the little things this week that made me smile.

This new top from Nike – so soft. And thumbs up after teaching bodypump!


Daily laughs from Run Eat Repeat on Instagram.


Coffee Wednesday is officially a thing. Smile


A much needed pedicure. Gold sparkles ftw.


Lukie haircut. He loved his “dinosaur” on his head.


Having a few days off work this week and enjoying some longer runs while watching horrible but entertaining holiday movies.


OMG. You guys. Amazing news from AdvoCare. . . there is a HUGE group challenge starting in January. If you pre-order your challenge by Dec 31st, you get FREE shipping, FREE limited edition blender bottle and wrist band AND another one time free shipping on your next order of $250 or more in January 2015. If you were on the fence at all about doing a challenge, now is the time. Are you ALL IN? (email me for details –>


Luke is loving his Advent calendar that Grandma Way put together for him.


Teaching early morning BODYPUMP. Done teaching before the sun even came up – craziness. Being done with your workout at 6:30am –> glorious. Smile



I am looking forward to more Christmas baking, dinner with friends on Saturday night, and football on Sunday!!

Hope you have a great weekend. What are you up to?? What made you smile this week?

Linking up with Heather and Claire this week!

  4. I wish the gyms around here had super early morning classes, they’re my fav. Apparently the old folks here don’t like to get up that early!

  5. Early workouts are the best! I celebrate coffee Wednesday almost every day.
    I’ll be spending the day and probably the weekend working on my Christmas shopping. I haven’t done any since black Friday and now I’m getting super nervous!

  8. I WISH I could take early morning classes! There is something about being done with a workout by 7:30am and having the whole day ahead of you that is just so refreshing!! Sadly I’m already up at 5:30 to get to work on time, so morning workouts just aren’t a possibility. Maybe someday…

  10. Hi Katie! I always smile post-BODYPUMP teaching! 🙂 And I got a much-needed manicure this weekend, which makes me happy every time I look down at it. Happy Friday. Thanks for hosting.

  11. I totally feel you on the Target thing. I feel like I go back there every other day! Gahhh!

    Woot for early AM BodyPump! I actually just got done teaching my 5:30 AM class a little while ago. It’s always a little rough getting up that early, but you’re right, being done with my workout by 6:30 AM is the BOMB!

    Have an amazing weekend!

  14. Your reindeer jamberry are still looking awesome!! I also love RER on insta. Her blog is hilarious and her instagram posts make me laugh everytime!

    I have a busy, busy weekend-christmas crafts and holiday baking with a couple of friends tonight, family christmas tomorrow afternoon with some of my in-laws followed by ex-roommate christmas (my old roommates and I get together, cook a fun dinner, and drink lots of wine), and then a cookie exchange party on Sunday. I’m going to need a day off to recover from my days off!

  16. I hate waking up early but getting your workout in before most people get up is an awesome feeling!! Listening to Christmas music on my way to work this week has been making me smile and making the commute much for relaxing 🙂 IDK what I will do when the season is over!
