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!



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 […]

Friday Faves + Best Drink Ever


Hi friends! HAPPY WEEKEND! What are you up to? Any fun fitness plans or events coming up? I have yoga teacher training on Saturday, and am going to be doing lots of practice for the BODYPUMP launch next week. If you see me around town, bobbing my head to some internal music and deadlifting, you […]

Spring Solo Spin Workout (+ playlist)


Hiiiii. What have you been up to today? I’m just returning back to the world after totally crashing out while putting Liv down for her nap. We read some books, laid down, and were both zonked within a couple of minutes. Definitely recovering from a full weekend of adventures.   I hit up the gym […]

Nana’s famous egg dish


Creme brûlée French toast and Easter adventures. It was a great Easter this year. <3 I remember last year, when we had just moved here and had yet to meet anyone. We had a blast with friends (and were so thankful to them for taking us under their wings), but at the same time, we […]

fun in the Sandy Eggo


Hi friends! How’s your morning going? I hope that whether you celebrated Passover, Easter, or a glorious weekend, that it was a great one! We got to spend our holiday weekend surrounded with some of HOME. My madre, stepdad and little bro came to stay with us, and we had so much fun taking them around […]

the family that Menchie’s together… (+Friday Faves)


Hi friends! Happy Friday! Hope your weekend is off to a lovely start. We have some fam in town, and it is the best ever. I have barre this morning and then I think we’re going to hit the beach! In standard Friday fashion, here are some favorite things from the week. As always, I […]

lunch game, strong


Hi friends! How’s the day going? You were cracking me up with your comments this morning. I think so many of you fell for it because, let’s be real, it kind of sounds like something I would try. I was giggling writing the post, trying to make it sound as “out there but kind of […]

Focus On: Quiver Pulse


You guys. I got the chance to try a workout that is TAKING OVER southern California. It’s like yoga, Zumba, meditation, and strength training all in one: Quiver Pulse! It’s still in the grassroots phase right now, but I was invited to take a special class in a quaint and beautiful studio space:  When I […]

My P90X3 review


Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? Apologies for being late to the blogging party today! I had a deadline, and as usual, every type of technology seemed to fail me. (Why does that always happen?)  Tie dye skirts make everything better. After this post goes up, I’m excited to get planting! We had […]

Misheard song lyrics + new Family posts


Hiiiii Happy Monday! How’s the day going? Sunday was so glorious. I started the morning off with an orangetheory class, which was the perfect power mix of plyo and intervals. I’m not sure if I just had a time when I picked weird days to go, because the last two workouts have been particularly awesome. […]

Friday Faves +Arkansas, you are so nice


Hi friends! HAPPY FRIDAY! What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun? We still have one more full day here in Little Rock and are having a blast. We’ve been able to check out a few of your amazing suggestions so far, too. Yesterday, we took Liv to the All Aboard restaurant (a train […]
