Friday Favorites: 6/20/14

Friday! Where have you been all week?

I have been a day off all week long, so I am SO happy that it is finally actually Friday.

And I am super excited for this weekend. . . because we have NOTHING planned. I love going up to the Lake and getting together with friends, but there is something so wonderful about a weekend with no plans.

But of course, I don’t actually have no-plans. .. on my to-do list – running (8 miles planned on Saturday!), Farmer’s Market (for the first time this year!), trying to make homemade lara bars (wish me luck) and lots of Lukie snuggles and playtime.

Here are a few things that made me smile this week. . .

**Luke playing guitar with Grandpa


**Advocare success texts


**Early morning alarms to get a run in before work


**Braving the wind and rain to teach Monday night BODYPUMP


**Lukie falling asleep holding onto his loader


**Finding a new tasty (chocolate!) protein powder from Advocare


**This girl – being my Advocare buddy, blend, gchatter, and just a great friend. I am so thankful to have her in my life.


**Update on last week’s Friday Favorites. .. I told you about the Honest company and how you can get free samples + cost of shipping. . . Well, I did that. And the samples came. 5 small bottles of a few different items. Nothing too exciting. BUT then, I re-read my initial email after I signed up to get samples, and you are automatically enrolled in their monthly subscription service when you sign up to get samples. That is SO irritating to me. I hate when you automatically get signed up for anything. . . But, what really annoyed me was the fact that to cancel, you had to CALL. You couldn’t just go online and cancel. I had to sit on the phone waiting to talk to an operator for 20 minutes!! Time I could have been spending with Luke playing or reading books. . . So, needless to say, I will never be ordering anything from the Honest Company again and I just wanted to share with you my experience and hopefully save you some time and money as well. <end rant> Winking smile

What are you up to this weekend? And what made you smile this week??

  4. Yay for Farmer’s Market! I’ve been wanting to go to one near me for a while, but I tend to have problems getting up in the morning on the weekend hahaha. And yum! I’ve been wanting to try to make my own lara bars too!

  5. Thanks for letting me/us know about the Honest Company- I almost signed up for it last week but didn’t get around to it. No I probably wont! Weekends with nothing planned are my absolute favorite. We have nothing planned next weekend but after that our whole summer is full πŸ™ Definitely going to take advantage of it. Have a great weekend!

  6. I checked out the Honest Company stuff too, then forgot to sign up for the free samples. I’ve totally been caught by the automatic renewal thing, and it drives me nuts.
    Love having weekends where nothing big is planned. I feel like we spend so much time during the work week planning everything out that sometimes it’s nice to just have a couple days where you can go with the flow!

  7. I love weekends with no plans! Our summers are normally crazy busy with lots of travel, but being pregnant has been a good excuse to spend most of our weekends close to home, with very few plans. I’m loving it! I feel like we’ll actually have time to check out our favorite TC spots as a family. Enjoy your low key weekend!

    Such a bummer about the Honest Company. What a pain!
