Friday Favorites: 5/29/15

Whoa. The last Friday of May. Seriously? Where is the time going??

Looking forward to some fun activities this weekend – Cross Fit, Farmer’s Market, movie night, and some baking! And maybe if the unpacking gets done, some adult beverages on our new screened in porch! Smile 

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


Nut thins


Have you guys had these? Blue Diamond sent me two boxes as part of their Tastemakers blogger program. And I was totally going to take some cute pictures, paired with yummy cheese. . .. and ummmm, the next thing I know, I was finishing off the second box. They have been the perfect crunchy evening snack lately.


So, if you have more willpower than I do, pair with some cheese. . . otherwise, straight out of the box is awesomesauce too. Winking smile 

this sign from my gym that I shared on Instagram this week. #truth


this cartoon. 


My sister sent it to me after my blog post last week. Perfect, right?

View from our new dining room window. 


I just love the woods behind our house. We see deer and wild turkeys every day. And I saw a doe and fawn last week. Adorable.

Luke swimming in the cold lake. 


When we were at the Lake last weekend, Luke really really wanted to go swimming, but didn’t realize the lake was freezing. He basically clung to Aunt Laura for dear life. Hilarious.

Birthday cake. Oh ya. Those pink roses = so good!


stitch fix. yup, this is happening. hoping for some new jeans!


Laura and I are going to be starting a 24 day challenge with AdvoCare on June 8th – done in time for the Fourth of July! If you want to join in or more details, shoot me an email.

  1. That picture of Luke is hilarious! Haha – Your sister looks like she got a good arm workout there 😉 And yes to Nut Thins being amazeballs. I will eat an entire box in a sitting… so good! Enjoy that marg on your porch if you find time, and I think you will find time 🙂

  2. Getting a piece of cake with the frosting rose is THE BEST! Cake is basically just a vehicle for frosting in my opinion 😉
    I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Love that sign above the scale. It’s so true! Also, Luke is hilarious. Little kids are too funny. I don’t normally get to hang out with them since I work at a college and don’t have kids, but a week with my 5-year old niece was a hoot!

    Have a great weekend, Katie 🙂

  5. Mmmmm that cake though!! I really want some now with tons of frosting (well, I want frosting more than cake b/c I don’t even really like cake, haha).

    That sign above the scale is perfect! P.s. my link-up link didn’t want to work today–it said error. Just thought I’d let ya know!

  8. Your view is beautiful! I love the woods – my grandparents’ old house backed up to a big field that ended in a nice little woods and I loved seeing all the deer and turkeys as a kid. And I love Nut Thins. They’re so addictive and delicious. Have a great weekend 🙂

  9. I just ordered a box of Nut Thins-they are so yummy. I’m worried my bf will finish the box without me!

  10. Yessss to those frosting flowers! They’re my favorite. I basically eat cake for the frosting so I guess that’d explain my love for them. 😉

    Loving that sign in your gym!! Great reminder!

    Enjoy your weekend – sounds like you have a great one in store!

  11. I think I might be the only person I know who does not like frosting flowers! I actually prefer cake to icing. Havev a wonderful weekend – sounds like you have some good plans brewing!
