Friday Favorites: smiles

Happy Friday!!

This was my first week back to work after having surgery, but thankfully it went well and the week seemed to fly by. . . now just to get through today and then on to the weekend. We don’t have any big plans – other than a 4 year old birthday party (her Mom makes the best cake!) and a trip to the Minnesota State Fair on Monday!!

Here are the things that helped me smile this week. . .


1. spark. Monday morning was t.o.u.g.h. but thankfully after I mixed up my spark, I felt ready to take on the day! #success


btw – next big group challenge is staring on September 8th, if you are interested in joining in, just let me know! Smile

2. bath time. love.


3. national dog day. cuteness.


4. rocksbox. loved this necklace from my latest box.


Unfortunately it was a little more than I would typically spend, but I had fun wearing it at work. Excited to see what comes in my next box. . . don’t forget to use the code running4cupcakesxoxo to get a month FREE.

5. Snack time.


So, I don’t know why I haven’t tried these almonds before. They are amazing. Super glad Influenster sent them to me to try out. They might be my new favorite afternoon snack.

6. Making energy balls with my favorite chef.


Cheers to a great weekend!! What are you up to??

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather and Clare!

  2. This week flew by for me too! What’s up with that? Yes to Spark (obvs…) and have so much fun at the fair!! I don’t even know if FL has a state fair (I’m sure they do) but it would totally not compare to the awesomeness of Midwestern fairs 😉

    Oh man. I’m not quite awake yet (it’s morning in my part of the world) and when you talked about the necklace the first thing I saw was the stethoscope and I thought “oh that is a really good necklace for a doctor”. Duh! 😀
