Friday Favorites: 3/6/15

Whew – Friday. I’ve been looking for you since Monday. Smile

And whoa blog issues. Hence no smoothie post yesterday. Thanks to some help from Instagram, I think I have it fixed. Fingers crossed!

Scott and Luke are in Wisconsin with me for the weekend. They got in late last night. Lots of snuggles and kisses before bed. Smile Looking forward to a low key weekend with no definite plans other than checking out the new town and having a birthday dinner with Scott’s family on Sunday – and eating cake!!

Here are the little things that made me smile this week. Feel free to play along either by linking up with your Friday post or sharing what made you smile in the comments.


My daily cupcake calendar.


My sister, Jenny, gave it to me for Christmas. The perfect addition to my desk at work. The only downside is now I have a growing stack of cupcake recipes to try. . . oh well, there are worse things, right? Winking smile

Blowing kisses.


Luke and I blow kisses to each other before bed every night over face time. It is the cutest.

The new tiramisu latte from Starbucks.

Also awesome – the caramel flan latte. Yup, it is dangerous that Starbucks is literally on the way to work now.

Cross Fit. It’s official. I am in love with CF. Like you should have seen the huge stupid grin on my face after the WOD yesterday. It just makes me happy.


I am working on a post with thoughts from my first month, but spoiler alert – it. is. awesome.

The housing market. We pretty much looked at every house in our price range over the winter and couldn’t find anything. Now that spring is coming, new listings are popping up every day. We are going to see one tomorrow that I am keeping my fingers crossed looks as good in person as it does online!

Hope you have a great one! Whatcha up to??

Linking up with Friday fun with both Heather and Clare!

    Glad you’re loving crossfit! I’m totally addicted, but am working in a small town 2.5 hours from home right now so can only go when I’m home on the weekends :-(.

    But I can go tonight and tomorrow :-D!

    Have a super weekend with your guys 🙂

  2. Wow! I give you a lot of credit. How do you look at cupcakes all day on your desk and not just drool?

  7. Tiramisu latte?? That sounds interesting – I may have to try that soon! Thankfully Starbucks is out of the way for me, but campus (I work at a college) has a coffee shop right next to me that’s very dangerous. I mean, they have a SNICKERS latte – how is that even fair? 🙂
