8/2: Friday Faves

-A short run and yoga sesh. Since I didn’t teach yesterday, I was able to change up my workout schedule a little. I was meeting some friends for nighttime yoga, and since it was a little cloudy (aka much cooler than it has been!), I felt energized to run beforehand. 3 miles with negative splits and I felt great afterwards. Yoga was the perfect dessert ๐Ÿ™‚

-This AMAZING lunch I had at work when the Pilot did his spa day.

Gluten-free veggie burger and Caesar salad, and I also had an almond milk latte, horchata ice cream and gf chocolate chip cookies. What dreams are made of.

-Having the Pilot home this week has been amazing. We’ve just been hanging out, but it’s always fun to have my best friend here with me. I found myself thinking, “Oh, what are we going to do on Monday?” and then I remembered that he has to go back to work. Derp.

-Noodle’s COUNTING. It just makes my heart do this funny dance and then slowly melt to the floor. I’ll try to take a video for the Family page.

-The movie Flight. Has anyone else seen it? We rented it, since it was one of those movies we both kinda wanted to see but not enough to go while it was in theaters. It was very intense! And Denzelโ€ฆ yeahโ€ฆ. no one minds a little Denzel.

-Our Tuesday night bowling date. We went with Kyle, Meg, Trevor, Mik, Meg’s brother, madre, and some of their friends. It was a random adventure, and while I’m terrible at bowling, the margaritas were $2.50 (!) and we all had a blast.

  1. Seen Flight as well! Great movie.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. please sign me up for the news letter. love your blog, long time reader.

  3. Haven’t seen Flight yet. However I have been loving the low-carb zucchini pizza. I have made “minis” and eaten then twice over the past week. So good, especially with a nice glass of vino! ๐Ÿ˜‰ [Hint: to get them extra crispy on the bottoms, I bake the crust on a hot pizza stone, then flip, bake 5 minutes longer, and then add my toppings].

    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and can soak up the last few free days with your man. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love the sound of that dinner! Oh and don’t feel bad, I’m no good at bowling either. Especially if I was having too many of those cheap margaritas! Yum!

  5. I am super excited for your August workout! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Looks like it was a great week for you!
    I’ve been needing to checkout some new movies so thanks for the recommendation.
    And that Lunch does sound amazing! Yum.

  7. Can’t wait to check out your August workout! Flight is on my must see list!

  8. We saw flight a little while ago we thought it was pretty good! Movies are all my husband and I ever do – lol! You could probably ask me about just about any of them! Have a great weekend!

  9. Very exciting month, two appointments in one day, hmmm…pregnant, maybe? But then the excitement over the margaritas threw me off!

  10. I really wanted to see that movie – thanks for the reminder! Have a nice weekend!

  11. I haven’t seen Flight yet. Anything with Denzel is usually pretty good. I want to see The Millers with Jennifer Anniston this weekend.

  12. I haven’t even heard of Flight! I don’t have cable and sometimes I feel so out of the loop with movies and tv shows. Definitely will have to check it out- thanks for the review ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I’m excited for the August workout! My husband and I have been trying to think of a movie to watch for our next movie night, we will have to check out Flight!

  14. Running in cloudy weather is SO much better that running in the sun! (At least for me…when I run and it’s anywhere above 75, then as soon as the sun hits my face I start sweating like mad. It’s NOT cute, haha!)

    Must be so fun having the hubs home all week! Like a little staycation ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Happy Friday! Looks like you had an awesome week! Extra time with the husband is always a plus ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. That lunch looks AMAZING! Don’t tell me a gym also has a spa…also has clearly incredible grub?! sounds too good to be true. Maybe it’s a good thing there isn’t something like that near me — I probably would never leave ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Flight was WAY more intense than I expected it to be as well – but you’re right, everyone loves a little Denzel ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. I definitely honed in on the $2.50 margaritas. Nice deal! I though Flight was really intense too, but it was good at least!

  19. What a fun week! Now I’m dying to go bowling. So fun!

  20. We really enjoyed ‘Flight’! Another one we just watched on a whim the other night and really enjoyed was ‘The Call’ with Halle Berry & Abigail Breslin. The end unraveled a bit, but it was the most exciting/suspenseful movie I’ve seen in long time, and didn’t have a lot of gratuitous gore.

  21. Smores cheesecake?!?! YUM!

  22. I’m jealous of the bowling! I cannot think of the last time I went bowling haha

  23. I saw flight awhile back and it was soooo good! Loved it. So glad you and your husband enjoyed your week together. I can’t believe your daughter is already counting!

  24. Newsletter, yessss!!

  25. Newsletter, yessss!!

  26. My husband and I both loved the movie Flight.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  27. Yoga feels sooooo excellent after running! Every time I yoga I wonder why I don’t do it more often!

  28. Yay!! The August workout email was a nice little surprise in my inbox this AM! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you Gina!

  29. Flight is awesome – saw it last weekend. Denzel is my fave

  30. Loved the movie Flight! I had not even heard of it when the hubby recommended it one night and I’m glad we watched it… very intense.

  31. I am terrible at bowling too ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh and I want to see Livi counting!

  32. I’ve been hesitant to see Flight since my fella is also an aviator… Is it one of those movies that makes you worry about them more??

  33. Hmmm maybe that’s a good movie pick for this weekend!

  34. That is so exciting that she’s counting!

    To me, Flight was just meh. I thought it was very predictable.

  35. i saw Flight! i liked it and it’s one of those movies that stays with you… you know?? like days after you’ll still be thinking about it!
