Friday Favorites: 1/3/14

Happy Friday!! The 1st of 2014! Got anything exciting planned? We have one more holiday party to go to on Saturday –> the white elephant gifts are always epic so I am really looking forward to it!!

Here are a few of my favorites from this week. . . as usual, feel free to link up with your Friday Favorites!!

New water bottle –> Luke gave me a new pink camelbak water bottle for Christmas.  My old water bottle just started leaking randomly on me leaving nice wet water spots on my pants when I tried to drink out of it. So, I was really really hoping that a new water bottle would be one of my presents. This one is the bomb. And pink. Smile 


Christmas food leftovers –> My Mom always makes a ton of food. ..  which is never a problem, because that means tons of leftovers, like we are still finishing them up a week later. Her meatballs and gravy, bacon appetizers and creamed onions. Love. love. and love. Smile Bonus because I haven’t had to cook at all this week.



The newest release. The new winter session starts on Monday at the YMCA and I am getting ready to start the new session with the newest release. To be honest, I wasn’t in love with it when I first listened to the music, but after a few times through and putting the choreography together – I LOVE it!! It also makes really good running music.



Scott and I have celebrated NYE the same way for the past 5 years. Papa Murphy’s pizza. Bottle of Asti. Home on the couch watching movies. And I love it.

Impromptu date night –> getting started on my 2014 goals! I set up the babysitter and surprised Scott with the babysitter showing up just as we were thinking about what we were going to do for dinner. So, we went out to Olive Garden (those breadsticks – amazing!) and had a very nice dinner and conversation. No pictures because I was too busy enjoying a random date night during the week!!

Tell me one of your favorites from this week!!

And feel free to link up! Smile

  1. Thanks for the love <3 I love your NYE celebration style – that is something I could totally get down with. Now I just have to wait until my 24-day AdvoCare Challenge is complete before pizza and bubbly 😉 Happy Friday!

  2. Way to go on the enjoying date night without a photo, sometimes that’s even more important! I haven’t taken a body pump class yet, but I think its super interesting how they release new versions for the instructors to learn. I’m pretty much on my own after taking my yoga sculpt certification, so I’m always looking for new moves to incorporate!

  3. I got snowed in today! School was cancelled so I’m getting ready to go ride my bike in the basement and do some workout videos online.

    I think triceps and shoulders are the hardest for BP88, but I’ve practiced the triceps enough that I can do it now. I need more work on those shoulders though! I like the music a lot, except I think the squat music for the 2nd and 3rd set does not go with the choreography!! It’s tough because there aren’t many words and I like to use lyrics as cues.

  6. I’ve been wondering about Les Mills- they have one at our gym too but I’ve been too chicken ha! Caribous perks?! I’ll have to look into that… considering we will be in Minnesota in 6 weeks I can only imagine it’s completely necessary… Happy New Year!
