Friday Favorites: 6/12/15

Fri – yay. Smile

Am I right? Ummm yup.

Anyway. . . whatcha up to this weekend? I have the launch of BP94 on Saturday, trip to the Farmer’s Market, more unpacking (well not really unpacking – now it’s organizing all the things we have unpacked. . ..), birthday dinner celebration with Scott’s family on Sunday. Hoping to sneak in some grilling, a few family runs, and maybe a trip up to the Lake to soak in some sunshine.

Here are my favorites from this week. . .. psst – make sure to share yours in the comments and link up your Friday post too. Smile


Spending time with my Dad.


I took Monday off from work to head up to the cities to hang with Dad while he was getting chemo in the hospital. He got to come home again on Tuesday. And fingers crossed, so far he is doing much better with this round of chemo than the last one!

An extra day with Lukie.



Then, I took the day off on Tuesday to sneak in some extra time with my favorite little guy. We hit up the Children’s Museum. Old McDonald’s, went for a run, and played outside. It was a great day.


The AdvoCareΒ 24 day challenge. So, I admit it, I was eating terribly before I started the challenge. But it is just amazing to me how just a few days of doing the challenge – taking the supplements and getting back to clean eating can make me feel so. much. better. Don’t get me wrong, I would probably kill for a caramel latte right now. But I know my body feels so much better (and my wallet!) that I haven’t been drinking them daily this week.

Simple meals. This week, I have been all about eggs.


Scrambled. Mixed with a little diced turkey. Salt and pepper. Done and done. But not for breakfast – I had them for dinner one night and then lunch the next day. Winking smile

Text messages in my new car.


So, the 2015 highlander is pretty sweet. It will sync up with your phone and read your text messages to you when they come in. And it is this crazy woman’s voice that is sorta hilarious to hear reading texts. makes me laugh every day.

Hot summer running.


Summer is officially here. It was 88 degrees for my run on Tuesday. I thought I was going to collapse or sweat to death. But I loved every minute of it. It was fun to go back and read some old posts about transitioning to summer running to summer running and my love for summer running (totally need to get that kiddie pool out asap).

Ok now it’s your turn. . . favorites from this week? Plans for the weekend??

Linking up with Friday fun with both Heather and Clare!

  2. i wanted to go for a run so bad yesterday.. but was TOO hot + humid! I gotta check your blog post! Happy friday!! xo

  3. We got lucky last weekend with the heat, but my run tomorrow promises to be a suuuuper sweaty one and the humidity in VA gets ridiculous.
    That is so cool that your car reads your texts to you! I just realized how old my car is technology-wise (it’s a ’06, so…ancient). Have a great weekend!

  5. Hi Katie! Days off for family time! YES! And we aren’t launching BODYPUMP 94 for a while, so have fun with it! I did the release at the Super Q, and it has more than 1,000 reps you know! Happy Friday! Thanks for hosting. And of course, my new puppy is my favorite thing of the week:)

      I KNOW!!! 1,000 reps is awesome. I have been loving it at home while I’ve been learning it so I’m excited to teach it! And of course that adorable puppy is your #1 favorite. Love. πŸ™‚

  6. Favorites this week – watching the Kingsman one night after work, perfect way to relax and unwind. Best part of the weekend… going to NYC to my best friends birthday brunch!

  7. Oh wow, you guys are launching BP94 already! Or maybe our gym is just late? I haven’t heard anything about when we’re launching yet, so I’m assuming not for awhile. Have so much fun with it! I gotta get on starting to memorize it!

    I want the 2015 Highlander so bad – love the new look of them! Are they a lot roomier than the previous years? We’re looking at 2012-2014 mostly. Glad you’re loving it!

      I think we are super early this time. . .but I’m excited so I’m just going with it!! πŸ™‚

      And the 2015 is a bit bigger than the earlier models but there is still plenty of room in the 2012-2014!

  8. So glad your dad is doing a bit better and you got to spend some good time with him! And your scrambled eggs look pretty incredibly. I love adding salty deli meat to eggs. Have a lovely weekend!

  10. Awh I’m so glad you got to spend time with your father! Makes me miss mine! It seemed like this week included alot of bread, maybe too much if that’s possible and plans for next week are very slim right now! I do have a ballet barre class tomorrow though so that will be fun!

  12. Colorado never gets super hot during the summer so I feel really spoiled with summer running.
