Friday Favorites: Post-surgery smiles

Happy Friday!!

As you know, I’ve been off work since my surgery, but I am still super excited for the weekend. It is supposed to be HOT here, so we are heading up to the Lake. Excited to soak in some sunshine, boat time and splash in the water. Smile

Here are the little things that made me smile this week. . .

Having Scott here!


He took 2 weeks off of work to help out around the house and with Luke following my surgery. It has been so so so nice to have him around. Another bonus – he’s been making all of us smoothies every morning for breakfast. #spoiled

Family walks. Summer is the perfect time to get outside. Usually we go for family runs, but I am taking it easy and with the heat of summer, walking is just fine with me!


Luke is finally feeling better! He came down with strep throat last Sunday and we started him on antibiotics, but he just didn’t get any better. And he developed a terrible rash from the antibiotics. . . Seriously, I felt so bad for the little guy. Thankfully, we got him on some different antibiotics on Tuesday and he’s doing much better now. And also, thank goodness for HGTV and Netflix because Luke and I were pretty much on the couch for all day Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Sweet surprise from a good friend. Spark + chocolate = does Becky know me or what? Smile


Incline walking workouts. With running on the back burner for a few weeks, I’ve still been working up one heck of a sweat on the treadmill. I forget how challenging incline walking can be. . . #sweatyselfie


Feeling good. Recovery from my surgery has been going really well. I am still sore and laughing is the most painful thing ever, but I have been able to do some things around the house and play with Luke.

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

Linking up with Friday fun with Heather and Clare!
