Friday Favorites: 7/19/13

Happy Friday!! I am extra happy this week because I start a week long vacation tomorrow!! We are hanging out around home and in the cities for a few days and then headed to the Lake for a few days with some friends visiting from Colorado!! And I have some super exciting guest posts coming up next week too. Smile It has been quite a while since I have done a Friday Favorites post, so I thought I would bring it back and share a few things that I am loving these days.

This shirt that I won on a giveaway on from Kim at My Healthy Nest from Endure. It fits awesome. Love the β€œRun” on the front and the quote on the back. Perfect for teaching aerobics or going for a run.


I got this super cool avocado tool and a nice card from the Hass Avocados people. It works so slick. Love it. Now, if I could just get them to supply me with avocados to put it to good use. . . Winking smile 


Summer running –> hot, sweaty, hard, awesome. Popsicles, watermelon and cold showers never felt so good.


BLENDS (blogger friends). . . I just feel so blessed to have met these ladies and to get to spend time with them.


The Lake. I have been going up to the Lake since I was a baby. It is the perfect summer spot. I wish the lake had less fish, but overall, it is a clean lake with no weeds, good for waterskiing and tubing, and cruising around in the boat. And Mom always cooks good food. Smile 


What are some of your favorites this week??? And what are you up to this weekend?

  1. This week, I’ve been loving:
    The sauteed corn, spinach, and parmesan omelet I had for dinner last night. Fluffy, yummy, savory and oh-so-good!

    Iced decaf VIA (Starbucks instant coffee) with half-and-half. It’s not quite as tasty as getting my iced decaf Americano fix, but it’s SO much cheaper!

    Family time. My little sis turned 23 on Wednesday (I was 22 when she was born!) and we all got together at Outback for a celebratory dinner.

    The Bridge: Great new TV show written/produced by Elwood Reid, my friend from undergrad creative writing class at U-M back in the day.

    Enjoy the lake! I haven’t even run through a sprinkler yet this summer! πŸ˜‰

  4. This week I have been loving iced coffees (a little too much), biking, and grilling out. I think we must have grilled out almost every night this week because it was too hot to cook in the kitchen! Have a blast on vacation, lakes are the best!

  8. Is it cheesy to say the Friday favorite blogs are my favorite? Everyone’s is so different!
    This weekend I’m heading to a Script concert near Red Wing, Mn then enjoying the rest of my week off of work with a tubing trip with a friend, a jaunt down Grand Ave in St. Paul, then heading back to Iowa to spend my brithday with my family!
    side note: love the layout of your kitchen!
