Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Any fun fitness events on the horizon? Festival 520 is happening here in Tucson (at La Encantada) if you’re local and want to check it out. The day is packed with fitness classes from local studios, and is sponsored by lululemon. You can check out my recap from last year here! I’m going to go check it out (even though I can’t take any of the classes) and say hi to some of my favorite Tucson fitness friends. After that, we’re off to my cousin Cal’s wedding (!) and heading back to SD on Sunday. It’s been an amazing week, and my heart is happy from spending time with so many of the people I love so much.

Now it’s time to dive into the usual Friday Faves! It’s always fun to share some of the things I’m loving + hear some of your faves, too, if you’d like to shout it out in the comments section.

#1: Kyle and Meg are back!

Kyle and meggie

They moved to the Berkshires for Kyle’s job a year and a half ago, and this week, they MOVED BACK TO TUCSON. My cheffer brother has received a few opportunities on the restaurant front, so I’m really excited to see what his next step will be. He’s already accomplished so much at such a young age, and I’m really proud of him. Most of all, I’m so happy that they’re back here in Tucson! I’ve missed them so much -and haven’t seen Meg in over a year!- and Tucson always felt a bit empty with them gone.

We were able to catch up last night over a delicious dinner at North in La Encantada.

Sustainable seafood with Blue Apron

This post is sponsored by my friends at Blue Apron. The Pilot and I have a little talk when we prepare Blue Apron meals. “Maybe this will be the one…” We keep waiting to see if we’ll have a Blue Apron meal we DON’T like, and in a year + of consistently making them, it […]

“I like walking Caro. She’s nice and slow.” “This is my pet spider. His name is Chuy.” (Thank goodness Chuy was a toy.) “How long until Penelope is old enough to have fun with me?” “How old do you want her to be?” “Um, probably like 55.”     “I think I just want to […]

How much cardio is too much?

Peanut butter jelly dip + Bitsy’s Brainfood giveaway

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood + includes an amazing giveaway opportunity.

thoughts on two

When we found out we were pregnant with P, I was totally shocked and overjoyed. At that time, I had no idea that the sesame seed growing in my belly would end up an almost 11-lb cuddlebug who would complement and magnify the smiles, love, and laughter that Liv had already brought into our lives.
