Friday Favorites: 1/31/14

Happy Friday!! I am on call this weekend for work. . . so I am hoping for a quiet, quick weekend! I am also hoping to spend some time checking out my new juicer and doing some major meal prep on Sunday night. And I have to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my best friend, Peggy! Can’t wait to see you in Maui in a few weeks!!


On to a few favorite things from my week. . .

This sign. . . #truth


Leaving work when the sun is still up. .. love that the days are getting longer!


Treadmill running. And Netflix Instant Play! It is just so easy to walk down the hall and hop on the treadmill and makes my morning workouts actually happen. And watching Heart of Dixie helps too.


Driscoll’s berries. . . I finally used all of my stash from HLS. #sadness

  1. I wish my gym had wireless so I could watch Netflix on the treadmill! That would be so awesome!!

      ahhh that is a total bummer that they don’t – you should write a comment card about it and see if it can be changed!!

  2. We’re heading up to MA to stay with our best friends for my wife’s birthday. We’ll all be going in to Boston tomorrow, go the Museum of Fine Arts, find some place to eat lunch from Yelp and maybe hit up some bakeries to find something special. I can’t wait!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Just yesterday I told Jesse that I was excited to notice the days getting longer now…it makes me a little bit happier knowing spring is on the horizon!

  4. I need to get myself an iPad to take to the gym so I can watch Netflix. It’s so hard on my phone, so I don’t really do it. I’m looking forward to seeing friends for the super bowl this weekend!

  5. I still have some frozen berries from HLS (aka girl’s weekend)! Hahaha. Oh what a great weekend.
    My favorites from this week: getting my Essential Oils package from Young Living, an early Valentine’s day card, and $2 caribou yesterday!

      I would probably have more leftover if I didn’t live with a smoothie monster. 😉 I am super excited to hear more about essential oils! Are you going to be doing a blog post on it?? And YES to $2 Caribou – makes every day better, right?

      • I’m hoping to do one within a month after I have seen if they can really work for me or not.
        We have a household of smoothie monsters over here too! We buy a couple bunches of bananas almost every week just so I have some to throw in the freezer!

          What are they supposed to do? I don’t know anything about it!

          • Basically there are supposed to replace drugs in your medicine cabinet! They can help with thousands of ailments. They are a natural way to help normalize and heal the body. You can diffuse them in the air, some can be taken internally, and most can be applied directly to skin with the proper dilution. I a still learning but so far I am very excited about them!

  6. YES to the sun at the end of the work day!!! Can’t WAIT until 9 PM summer sunsets, but this is a small victory. 🙂

  8. Thanks so much for the shout out and for linking up! Ahhh having a treadmill at home is a dream of mine… I would watch movies all the time and go for so much longer! Happy Friday! 🙂

      Thanks Heather!! And I totally think that our treadmill purchases was one of the best ones ever. I use it way more than I thought I would!

  9. The end of January is always when I notice the days are getting longer. Thank goodness!! I can maybe stand a bit more of winter as long as I get my daylight hours 😉

  10. Going to be totally honest…100% jealous of your morning treadmill runs! SO wish I had a treadmill at home…or you know…still lived in Florida, where you can run outside all year long…either would work. haha

    And SO proud of you for tackling those runs in the morning! So hard but so worth it! 🙂

  11. Oh, most definitely loving the longer days. Now if only the temps would follow suit asap! Enjoy your weekend!
