Friday Favorites: Last week of July!

Happy Friday!! We are headed back up to the Lake this weekend. . .. bring on the sunshine and family time. Hoping for some slow boat rides around the lake, time at the beach playing in the sand with Luke, family runs, and some good food. Oh and binge watching House of Cards at night. Smile

Here are a few of my favorite things from the past week. . .


Lunch with my sisters. Panera for the win. We sat, talked and laughed for almost 2 hours. It was exactly what I needed.


Running!! First runs after my surgery this week and they felt great. . . I also spent the day with Dad on Tuesday, and was able to stop for a run at my all time favorite spot – Summit Ave in St. Paul.


And the steps on the cathedral behind me is where Scott proposed.

My Mother In Law’s lemonade. When she brought dinner last weekend, she also made a batch of her amazing lemonade. . . and I have been enjoying the leftovers all week.


Stealing Luke’s snacks. So, I snagged this container of animal crackers from  my parent’s house and when Luke didn’t want them, I was more than happy to help him out. Winking smile


Luke’s first gymnastics lesson. Oh the cuteness.


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

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather and Clare!

And finally, the winner of my Balance Bar giveaway is Amy. Smile

    I am so glad you were about to get back to running! It’s great that you were able to spend some time with family this week; sister date at Panerea and time with your dad! I hope he is doing well, by the way.

  6. Yay! So glad you’re able to be back to running! I bet it felt so good. Mmm, homemade lemonade is the best. I’ve been ALL about lemonade this summer! And seriously, I forgot how yummy kids’ snacks were until I had Hunter. 😉 Have a great weekend, Girl!
