Friday Faves, savory dream, orange-iversary

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Hope your morning is off to a great start and that you have some fun plans this weekend! Livi is getting her 3 year photos taken, tomorrow is the launch at our gym (if you’re local and would like to come, let me know!), and Sunday I’m teaching 3 barre classes. Whoosh. I’m excited to chill with the fam and getting ready for a little trip next week. 

Be sure to head over to the family page for a giveaway (includes a Target gift card!):

And now onto Friday Faves! I always enjoy putting together this little list each week and will add to it as the week goes on. It’s always fun to hear what you’re loving, too, so please shout it out in the comments and feel free to link away!

Some things I’m loving this week: 

These flats are everything. 

Orangetheory anniversary. 

Orange iversary

(With Coach Jolen, one of my faves)

It’s hard to believe that it’s been one year since my first orangetheory class! It remains one of my favorite workouts ever. I’m so happy that it still feels good for now and I’ve been able to continue with classes using some modifications. The coaches push me to work harder, and going to orangetheory has definitely improved my running speed -finally got that half marathon PR- and fitness levels. I’m able to lift heavier now than I did last year!

Justin Timberlake and Garth Brooks singing “Friends in Low Places.”

P!nk. I just love her. 

Thanks to Lowe’s for looking out for the bees. <3

This lunch. I just had to show you.

Breakfast lunch

(Spiralized zucchini cooked in a little olive oil with salt and pepper, 2 eggs over hard with sriracha, 1/2 avocado and 2 slices of organic turkey bacon. It made all of my savory dreams come true.) 

Yoga for different body types or doshas. 

I’ve listened to this song so many times this week and can’t wait to download the full album on the 28th. 

Pretty cauliflower at Whole Foods.


The Sally Hansen gel line! I picked up the pink color, totally skeptical that it would last longer than a few days, as I’m pretty rough on my nails with teaching/cleaning/life. It’s been 5 days and there’s only one tiny chip. I’m a believer.

The moral bucket list

9 years away, but still so relevant and beautiful to read.

An arm-sculpting yoga sequence. 

A “gym” for women in the 1940s? I keep thinking it looks like a bakery haha. And now I want to do victory rolls in my hair. 

Happy Friiiiiiday!

The latest ‘fix


Hi friends! How’s the morning going? A little later to the blog today because I had a doc appointment. It feels like the week has been full of those, but it’s Thursday already so not complaining. Popsicles and bubbles on the porch: (Just coconut water, pineapple chunks and mint. Fast to make and super refreshing) […]

back to the hot bar


Hi friends! How’s your day going so far? It’s been a busy one over here, and I had my last hand therapy appointment this morning. After Thumbgate, I had a lot of nerve sensitivity, numbness and weakness. I would pick things up and drop them, and anytime something touched the spot where I cut the […]

Family: First Trimester Faves

snoogle love (1 of 1).jpg

 I’ve been reunited with the Snoogle!! (Dat bump, tho.) I brought it into my arms in a warm embrace, and sang it some Ed Sheeran.  Last time I was pregnant, I wrote about some of my first trimester faves. I thought I would share the latest, since they’ve changed a bit this time around. Here […]

The Suja Juice Solution + a special gift for readerfriends


Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a great one so far. <3 After a spiral into Easter candypalooza -those little Reese’s and m&ms get me every time- I’m feeling inspired with healthy eats this week. Last week, I received a copy of The Suja Juice Solution from my friend Annie Lawless. She […]

San Diego Favorites: Ocean Beach


Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’ve had a great one so far. <3 I got some work done around here, and took a super sweaty OTF class. I’m excited to continue this little series on the blog since so many of you are traveling to San Diego this summer and have asked for […]

Using the 5 love languages in fitness classes


When we were living in Valdosta, I read a book called The Five Love Languages. I’m pretty sure a blog readerfriend pointed me in its direction, and it’s one of the books I’ve read that have had a profound impact on how I live. It’s one that I go back to and think of often, […]

Tropical cherry Paleo muffins


Hi, I made you some muffins! Don’t let the little green bits freak you out; just some hemp seeds. For these muffins, I decided to make something a little different than my usual fare. Usually I’m all about chocolate and almond butter (like this, this and this!), but with my recent obsession for bright tropical flavors, […]

Family: Bye, 1st Tri

13 weeks (1 of 1)-2.jpg

I’m officially into the second trimester, and this pregnancy is FLYING by.  13 weeks: w Livi, who had just woken up from her hap:   Highlights: -Starting to feel little flutters. I can’t wait until they turn into full-blown kicks, and until Tom and Liv can feel the baby. When I eat something particularly delicious, […]

The master gobbler


Hi friends! How was your weekend? Hope you’re having a great Monday so far! I’m off to teach BODYPUMP -so excited for the launch this weekend- and spending the morning with my little sidekick.  Yesterday, we went to explore a nursery that was recommended to us by a friend. I’m not sure how word gets […]
