Friday Favorites: 2/14/14

Happy Friday and Happy Valentine’s Day!!


Got any big plans? Yup, us neither. Winking smile 

Planning to eat leftovers and pack for Maui –> we leave tomorrow!!

I better get to it because I have to pack Luke for a week with Grandma and Grandpa. I have to pack myself and Scott, who is busy working on the house to finish up last minute projects before we leave for a week.  And of course, pack for Abby too – although she is pretty easy – food, leash, treats, done.

Here are some of my favorites from the past week. . .

These almonds that Ashley sent me. . .OMG amazing. Actually, looking at this picture makes me super sad because they are all gone.


Roasted broccoli. I think roasting makes all veggies better, right? I don’t know why I don’t do it more often. <love>


Teaching BODYPUMP and eating cupcakes. One of my regulars brought me this peanut butter cupcake that his daughter made for her birthday. Deliciousness. And super thoughtful. Usually it is running for cupcakes, but on Wednesday it was bodypumping for a peanut butter cupcake!


Valentine’s for Luke’s friends at daycare.  . . Angie’s vanilla cupcake kettle corn (made right here in Mankato!) for the kiddos.


And KIND bars for the adults. The tag reads: Your KINDness doesn’t go unnoticed. Cute, right? Yup, wasn’t my idea – I got it here. Smile 


My pink sparkle Jamberry manicure. And Coke Cherry Zero.


And this bag from Apera.


They were nice enough to send me this bag to check out. Full review coming soon, but I have had this bag for all of 2 days and I LOVE it. It is going to be my gym bag usually, but I think I am going to use it for my carryon for traveling this week. And of course, I l-o-v-e the color.


As usual, please link up with your Friday post!! Any post is welcome. Smile 

Spreading the link love by linking up with Heather, Claire, and Darci again this week.

    I started the day of love with a killer bootcamp – 36 sets of stairs – 1000 jump ropes – 160 push ups – 200 abs and 100 jump squats! Yet my legs are rubber! Now the rest of the day just gets better…beautiful diamond earrings from Clint (I’m spoiled) – dinner out tonight in St. Paul and DANCING! I can’t wait! Enjoy Hawaii and I will enjoy subbing for you next week!

  4. Nice bag! Can’t wait to hear more about it.

      I wasn’t sure if we were supposed to bring something or not. . . so I figured I would err on the side of bringing ones. Good thing I did because all the other Mom’s did too!
