Friday Favorites: 1/24/14

Happy Friday. Are you doing the Friday dance too?

Luke and I are going to kick off the weekend by heading to the YMCA – teaching spin/bodypump class this morning and then some ball pit action for Luke. We have another weekend with nothing planned. Well, that’s not exactly true – I’ve kept our schedule free, so Scott can spend lots of time working on the new house. So, Luke and I will do lots of visiting, playing and keeping the townhome in shape. Also, looking forward to getting in a few treadmill runs during naptime and meal planning. I know, it’s ok to be jealous of my awesome life. Winking smile 

Here are my favorites from this week. . . 

My husband.


He is working so hard making sure everything is going right with the house, spending lots of time on the phone with the builder and contractor. As well as he is spending evenings and weekends working on finishing the basement! I am so thankful to #1 have such a hardworking husband #2 to have such a handy husband who can finish a basement! #3 for his attention to detail because I know our house is going to be awesome because of it. . .

Active Accessories on-the-go hair bands – of course I love the pink color! (btw – do you have any idea how hard it is to take a picture of your hair?)


and they have a super cute on-the go accessory pouch. Perfect for your phone, chapstick and gym card.


I was sent this products for free from Active Accessories for my review, but, as usual, all opinions at 100% my own on R4C. . . but also, the hair bands showed up at just the right time because I could not find my usual hair bands ANYWHERE. . . well, guess where I found them 3 days later. ..


I guess they needed to be used as cargo in the dump truck.

AND you all can get 25% OFF your purchase on their website with coupon code: Running4Cupcakes. It expires on Valentine’s Day!

Bringing my own coffee to work. #1. Saving $5 = awesome #2. I love my nespresso machine and it makes pretty great lattes.


Speaking of coffee. .. this sign in my office always makes me smile.


My 1st juice – carrots and apple.


After watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, I was inspired to try a fresh pressed juice. I don’t have my own juicer, so I checked out the one (?!? downside of living in a small town) place that sells fresh pressed juice. The verdict – LOVED it. Can’t wait to get my own juicer (hopefully soon, my friend Sue is going to let me check out one of hers!) and try some greens!

Google hangouts with my favorite blends (Becky, Melanie & Caroline). <good for my soul> Thanks again for the chat ladies. Smile 


Tell me some of your little favorites from the week? And weekend plans?

Please link up with any Friday post of your own – all are welcome!!

  3. Oh geez, now that is an attractive google chat photo. Buzz your girlfriend…woof!
    The first thing I thought when I saw that photo of your hairband was, I wonder if she took that photo herself because that would be a really challenging photo to take? Ha ha. You’ve got skills girlfriend.
    Your weekend sounds restful and rejuvenating. Enjoy it!!
