Friday Favorites: 7/3/15

4th of July weekend? What? No, like seriously where is the time going this summer?

Anyway. . . Happy Friday!! Anyone else starting the weekend a day early? I actually didn’t realize I had today off until Tuesday when I was reviewing my schedule for the week. Best. surprise. ever.

Cheers to a 3 day weekend!!


We don’t have anything specific planned. . . probably head up to the lake for a little bit to soak up some sunshine, take a boat ride and splash in the water. 

Here are my smiles from this week. . . feel free to play along in the comments or by linking up with your own Friday post!


The newest addition to my nightstand. Gah – this stuff is AMAZING. I don’t take it every night, only after particularly intense cross fit/body pump workout. 


New glasses.


I don’t love glasses. I only wear them for about 20 minutes before bed and less than 2 minutes after getting up in the morning, otherwise, it’s contacts all the time. But, I needed an updated pair.  . so, Warby Parker to the rescue. I love their at home try on program. I wasn’t expecting much, but picked out some pairs to try on at home and found a winner. Smile 



I cannot get enough lately. My favorite combo is either turkey + avocado or rotisserie chicken with homemade mayo + fresh tomato + pickles + cojack cheese – all wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla. Summer lunch perfection. 

Living close to my sisters. My house is just down the block from the local dog park and I know Abby loves getting picked up for random outings during the day while I am at work. And I love getting pictures while I’m at work. 




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

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather and Clare!

    Sometimes low key holiday weekends are the best! I don’t love glasses either, but the ones you picked out are cute!
    Happy Friday!

  5. Sounds like a perfect long weekend! Enjoy it! And yay for new glasses. Even if you don’t wear them a lot, there is something about new frames that just make you feel like a new person.

  9. I am the same way with glasses but I know I should be wearing them more! Love my iced coffee in the summer ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. How do you make your own mayo? That wrap looks so yummy! I just ate a wrap with baked chicken, spinach, green peppers and a little ranch. Your weekend on the lake sounds fabulous! Have fun!

  12. My jealousy for your dog increases by the tenfold every day, I just love all animals! Unfortunately my apartment does not allow for them, however whenever I see a cute dog on the street I tend to stare at it for a good 5 minutes more than I should ;).
