Friday Favorites: 12/6/13

Happy Friday!!


Are you ready to link it up?

I know there are a couple of version of Friday Favorites around the blog world, but here on R4C, it’s all about the little things that made you smile over the past week. And anything goes! Because we all know that it’s the little things in life that make it count, right?

So feel free to join in with your own Friday Favorites post. I’d love if you grab the Friday Favorites image for your blog and please use #FriFavs when you tweet or instagram!! And since this is my 1st link up, please let me know if something doesn’t seem to be working. Smile

Although, I am super stoked that today is Friday, it unfortunately means that we are one day closer to heading back to the cold and snow in MN. . . boo.

Oh well. I am choosing not to think about that.

Instead, I am thinking about all my favorites from this week. . .

Running on the beach at low tide. I think it might be the perfect running surface. There is always something to look at – either people watching or the ocean. And the nice Florida weather doesn’t hurt either.


Dunkin’ donuts iced caramel skim latte. There are no words.


Morning snuggling. Usually we have to wake Luke up to head out in the morning or one of us tries to sleep in while the other gets up with Luke in the morning. Luke has been sleeping until a decent hour and so we both have been awake for mornings with him. It’s my favorite thing to pull him into bed with us and talk and snuggle while we all wake up.


Reading books. Catching up on my reading! Book of choice this week – Through the Ever Night –> the next book in the series after Under the Never Sky.

Luke giggles. Seeing his huge smile and hearing his laugh when he is splashing on the beach has just been heart melting this week.


Margaritas on a Wednesday night. I don’t drink a lot, maybe one drink per month, depending on if Scott and I have a date night. So, having an awesome margarita on a random Wednesday night on vacation – pretty sweet.


Publix –> oh man, this grocery store is like the best ever. I could wander around checking out all the cool products for a while. We don’t have Publix in MN, and I am going to be really sad to leave it here in Florida. We are in a condo this week with a little kitchen, so the first thing we did was go to Publix and stock up on food for the week. I am just sad that we were only here for a week, so that really limited all the stuff we could buy and check out. BTW – they have the best cheesecake!

Vacationing with my parents. And watching them be grandparents. They just love Luke so much and will pretty much do anything for him (like all good grandparents), but it just makes me smile to watch Luke digging in the sand with Grandpa or holding hands walking down the beach with Grandma.


Now, it’s your turn! What are you favorites from the week?

  2. Morning snuggles are the best, that’s why I love weekends so much! Favorites from my week include my husband doing ALL the cooking so far, finally taking a yoga class for the first time in forever, and having 73 degree weather today (it won’t last, but whatever). Glad you’ve had so much fun on vacay, have a safe trip home!

  3. Awww… your vacation looks amazing so far. I too love running on a beach. It’s so much more difficult but you feel the burn after only a few miles 🙂 And Dunkin’ – I’m so glad you have found the obsession 😉

  5. Oh man, I miss Publix!! They have the best cupcakes & buttercream frosting!

    I want to participate in Friday faves! I’ll link up this week!

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation – there’s nothing quite like the tranquility that comes with being on the beach. I miss that…almost as much as the Publix cake. 😉
