Friday Favorites: 8/1/14

Happy August! Did that sneak up on anyone else? I cannot believe that it is August already? Seriously, wasn’t it just the 4th of July last weekend? Craziness.

And happy Friday!! Oh man, this week seemed to take for-ev-er, right? I think it was because I was post-vacay. . .

But we all survived. . . and now it’s the weekend!

Luke and I are hanging out today, getting some stuff done around the house, I teach BODYPUMP tonight (locals – 5:30pm at the YMCA), and then we are headed back to the Lake for the weekend!

So, I have to get to it, but here are my favorites from this week. . .

–> Sunshine lunches.


Usually my lunch time is taken up by catching up from the morning, returning patient phone calls or working on my never-ending pile of paperwork, so it was a nice treat to be able to eat lunch outside in the beautiful sunshine!

–> Being back to BP after being on vacation last week.


And it’s amazing how just missing a week can bring back that muscle soreness again. Whoa quads.

–> Crepes from my MIL.


She brought some leftover crepes and filling when they visited last weekend. And it was so nice to have a quick, easy dinner on Tuesday night. And they are super yummy. Smile

–> Smoothie stop.


Luke was having a sad morning, I was having an “I can’t wake up” morning, so a stop at Caribou was much needed. Caramel skim latte for me. Kids banana strawberry smoothie for him. Immediate mood booster for both of us.

–> AdvoCare meal bar – chocolate and peanut butter. IMG_1988

So, I had literally nothing in the house for lunch on Wednesday, so I threw one of these in my bag and hoped for the best. It’s supposed to be a meal replacement bar, but I was super skeptical and really worried about dying from hunger in the afternoon. But, it was amazing. Chocolate and peanut butter for lunch = yes please. And it kept me full for hours with it’s 16 grams of protein. The only thing that was a little strange was the texture of the peanut butter filling. . . it was sorta chewy, not in a bad way, but not what I was expecting either. I will totally keep these on hand for quick breakfast and lunches in the future!

–> My pink problems.


I snapped this picture after BP on Wednesday night. Pink spark, pink lululemon top, pink apera bag. I just had to take the picture and laugh. Smile I love it.

–> And this email.


Eeeeek!! SO excited for my next Stitch Fix! Look for a post next week to help me decide what to keep. Smile 

What are you up to this weekend? Your favs from the week??
