Friday Favorites: 8/29/14

O.M.G. is anyone else ridiculously excited for the long weekend?

We decided to make it extra long by taking today off. We are headed to the MN State Fair. Fun fact – Luke has been there every year since he’s been born (and even one year in my belly!).

And then after the fair, we are headed up to the Lake for a long weekend. The only thing on the to-do list is to make fruit pizza!

Anyway, here are a few of the things that made my week awesome. . .


BP91 <– it’s here!! I haven’t had a chance to do the class yet (maybe this weekend?) but I am loving the music so far!


Early morning bodypump class. <– OK, so I really really really don’t like getting up early. My alarm going off at 4:40AM is pretty much the worst thing ever. BUT after I get to the YMCA, get the music going and start the workout.. . amazing. Watching the sunrise through the windows of the aerobics studio during the hour = perfection. And the way I feel after class – it makes getting up so early *almost* worth it. Winking smile


Grass <– since we moved in ummmmm 6 months ago, we have had a dirt pile as our front yard. After dealing with muddy paws for 6+ months, grass in our front yard is SO exciting. Oh man, I never thought I would be commenting in a blog post about how much I love grass.  . .


Family runs <– always a highlight.


Hope you had a great week – what made it awesome for you?? And plans for the long weekend??

  1. Fun! Jason (boyfriend) and I are moving to MN this weekend (!!) and if we’re in a good place, unpacking wise, I said we have to make it to the MN State Fair on Monday, to see how it compares with the WI State Fair! Have fun!

    Lol, congrats on your grass 🙂 I can see how having dirt would be annoying with a little boy and a pup. I’m headed down the shore for one last taste of the beach this weekend.

    my weekly favs…..moving my daughter back to college for year 2 – seeing my son successfully dive out of an airplane and making it to Friday! Have a fun and safe weekend!

  4. Yay for grass!! Seeing a pile of bright green is always better than a pile of brown haha :). And yay for the lake!!! No plans, a little work, and hanging with the boyfriend for me 🙂

  5. Have fun at the fair! We took the girls on Wednesday and it was a lot of fun. I’m excited for the long weekend too. It’s nice to have Eric home for an extra day, and we have family visiting to meet Baby C.
