Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Aaaand happy Valentine’s weekend. I’m a huge fan of V-day -anything involving sweet cards, chocolate and wine is a win in my book- but even more so because it’s the anniversary of when we brought Bella home. Crazy that it was 10 years ago! Do you have any fun Valentine’s plans or dates? We usually will take Liv to a fancypants restaurant or get takeout to enjoy at home, but this year we have something special planned if I can kick this weird virus.

I’m still feeling absolutely terrible, and had zero appetite yesterday until I was ready for some soup. Postmates to the rescue. I was able to order the most beautiful ramen, and it showed up on our doorstep so no one had to leave and pick it up. It was my first time trying the service and it was so easy. Like, too easy. This could definitely become a thing. 

I had the vegan ramen broth with gluten-free noodles and 1/2 an egg.


Liv LOVED the ramen. She was like “I don’t like the egg, but I want more seaweed.” Girlfriend knows what she likes. 😉

In standard Friday fashion, here are some faves from the week and around the web! I always love to hear what you’re enjoying too, so please join in the fun in the comments section if you would like.

1 hour, $60, 1 week of daytime eats

(All gluten-free!) Meal prep is back! I was so excited that you guys enjoyed this post last week, so I made another round so that you’d have some more options to choose from. I got a couple of requests to add dinners into the mix, but I’ve found that dinners (for me) are really hard […]

Crispy shrimp, rice, and veggies with soy ginger sauce

Sounds good, right? Being pregnant and becoming a mom changed me in a lot of ways. Yes, it made me more patient, my heart more full, and my days more busy (yet fun!). Oh, and it made me like fried food. Like, a lot. When I was pregnant, even though many people said it was […]

Focus On: GRAVITY fitness

 Hi friends! Happy humpday! Thank you again for all of your patience with the server crashes and blog downtime. The blog was excited to see so many new faces (hiiiiii!) and your Winter Shape Up excitement that she fainted. She should be back to normal now 😉 Back in the swing of things over here! […]

a whole day, from start to finish

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning. Sorry for the blog downtime yesterday! We are in the processing of upgrading another server, so hopefully the crashes will end. When we did the blog survey a while ago, I got a few requests for a full day post. I got another request last week, and thought […]

not far from the tree

Hi friends! How was the weekend? Hope you had a great one. Did you watch the Beyonce bowl? I missed 98% of the actual game but you can bet I watched the halftime show, and it was everything. Queen Bey, Coldplay and Bruno Mars?! Yesss to all of these things. Also, Lady Gaga. I bow […]

Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Hope you’re having a lovely morning. I am SO excited for the weekend. The week feels like such a blur, and the weekend is a chance to slow down a bit. It’s nice to get to sleep in (the Pilot and I take turns), hang out with friends, and enjoy time […]


“I don’t know what Bell-bell’s going to grow up to be. I’m going to be a doctor.” “What kind of doctor?” “Um…. well, I want to be a dentist.” “What’s daddy’s job?” “To work out.” “Hahha. Does he teach people how to fly airplanes?” “Oh. Yeah.” “What’s mommy’s job?” “To work out. And clean up […]

Happy 3 months, Penelope! (+ an Owlet giveaway!)

Guess who is 3 months old? That’s a quarter of a year! I can’t even. Miss P is still smiling like crazy, babbling and cooing to her heart’s delight, and chewing on her hands like they’re a delectable treat. I’m convinced that she’s teething because she is always gnawing on her hands, but the ped […]
