Friday Favorites: 4/19/13

This week has been a long one. . . right? But I have taken a lot of time to think of some of the things that I am thankful for. . .

Tuesday – that I had the day off of work to spend it with this little guy on his 1st birthday


More snow. . . it just keeps coming in MN, but gosh, it is pretty. And soon enough it will be 90 degrees and humid. So, I am enjoying it while it lasts. And it helps that I probably won’t have to shovel with warmer weather coming hopefully soon! And I might be taking a hint from the weather gods that I need to buy that pair of boots I have been drooling over. . .


Teaching Body Pump – I don’t have a regular class this session and it was a nice change to sub for the 5:30am class on Tuesday and Thursday. Yes, I had to get up at 4:43am and that was super tough, but I felt ah-mazing afterwards. . . well, after a quick stop at Caribou. . .


Speaking of Caribou – I am thankful for our neighborhood coffee shop, that it is sorta on my way to work, that the ladies who work in the morning know my drink – large caramel skim latte – and that it just makes me happy.

Running. No words. I just love it. so much.

My husband. He stopped by work on Thursday and took me out to lunch. Best. idea. ever.


Abby’s puppy face. Yes, she may have gotten up on the table and took a bag of cheese curds last night, but gosh, I love her. And she is so soft and smells so good after being groomed!


This picture. . . I took it during Luke’s birthday party last weekend. All these people who came for his party and the love that was in the room was just wonderful.

  1. Thanks for the great, positive post to start the weekend! I’m thankful that my parents are in town this weekend to start bday celebrations for my little one. Lucky girl gets to stretch her bday out over 10 days! I’m thankful that they’ve offered to watch the girls so both my husband and I can run a trail race tomorrow morning. I’m thankful to have two amazing little girls, an incredible husband, and a sweet pooch who loves to share my daughter’s crumbs and whatever else she’s offering from her atop her high chair throne!

  2. I am glad I am not the only one who has a naughty dog that jumps up onto tables and counters to steal people food. When I was in grad school, Mitchell somehow got up to the stovetop and ate an ENTIRE PAN of chocolate brownies without knocking the dish onto the floor. It was licked clean. Luckily, he was going to the vet to get boarded that day and never got sick from it.

      I love your thankful list. . . and that peanut butter comes closely after family! You are a girl after my own heart. 🙂 Have you ever tried PB and Co peanut butter?

  9. Hi! Just found your blog and I love reading it. Abby is adorable. I grew up showing Collies, now have an English Shepherd. I just love fuzzy Collie looking dogs 🙂

    Ohh, and cheese curds! Every time I go back home I have to stop and get some. Now, I will be thinking about them all day.
