happy friday!!!!

I am extra excited because my best friend and her family got here late last night to spend the next week with us! We are hanging out in Mankato for a few days, then heading to the Lake for sunshine, swimming and eating. I am already super excited about making this ice cream cake.

Ice Cream Cake with Circus Animal Crust {Lightened Up} - Food Faith Fitness

And yes I timed my 10 day AdvoCare challenge just riiiiiight to be done before they got here! Winking smile

Here are the little things that made me smile this week. . . as usual, please feel free to play along in the comments or by linking up with your blog post!!


–> Our house is finally painted!!


For the last 3 months, it’s been an ugly tan color and now it’s the blue-grey color we picked out sooooo long ago! I can’t wait to give someone directions to the new house so I can say – yup, we are the blue house on the left!

–> This cute bracelet.


One of our BODYPUMP instructors is moving and so tonight is her last class. So Chris and I teamed up and picked out this super cute bracelet to give her. Love all their sayings!!

–> Wearing my favorite workout shirt from my best blends to teach BP90 this week.


–>Taking “after” photos from my 10 day challenge. –> full recap next week!


and hearing yet another story of how SPARK helped someone kick their pop habit     –> nice work Joyce!!!

–> Travel time to school/work in the morning.


Usually Luke is in a pretty good mood and likes to talk and tell me lots of things – what’s out the window, what he’s going to do at school, what he dreamt about last night. I just love these conversations with him.

–> Fruit sale at the local grocery store. Stocked up. Seriously in love with the cherries right now!!


–> new running shoes. Saucony Triumph 11. And of course, my favorite socks.


What made you smile this week?? Plans for the weekend?

Spreading the link love by linking up with Heather and Claire again this week.
