Friday Faves

 TGIFF. (<– yes, there is an extra “F” there.)

So excited for the weekend! When Livi wakes up, it will determine how the rest of the day will go. She’ll either wake up feeling much better (fingers crossed), or same/worse which means a visit to the ped is in order. I really hope the she wakes up feeling better and happy. It breaks my heart to see her miserable, and we all have a little bit of cabin fever.

Tonight we’re supposed to have dinner at my dad’s house, tomorrow will be my first run back in the game -my legs were a liiitle sore after last weekend- and Sunday, the girls are headed to Phoenix for my cousin’s baby shower. Then, the avalanche of traveling and moving stuff begins! Lots of stuff to look forward to. 

Some faves from the week: 

Tulips  1 of 1 2

-Tulips. I love the lilies and tulips that are in season this time of year. They’re also super inexpensive at TJs, so I’ll pick up a few bunches to have throughout the house.

-A surprise package from Moving Comfort. They sent me these printed crops,


a hot yoga tank, new sports bra and my favorite hoodie (in a gorgeous pink color) to try out. Love!

-Pure talent: this girl speaks gibberish but uses authentic accents to demonstrate how foreign languages sound to outsiders.

-My Travolta-fied name is Georgia Harvey

-These veggie burgers! All veggie and brown rice flour. I left two in the fridge and froze the rest to reheat for quick lunches. They’re awesome on hamburger burns, or crumbled onto salads with avocado, chopped veggies and salsa.

“Let it Go” on the Jimmy Fallon show. <– my favorite live version so far!

Whitney’s Soli Beat review! <3

Caitlin’s fantastic post about returning “to normal” after childbirth. I totally agree that it took me about a year to fully feel like myself again.

9/27: Friday Faves

Floral denim. I got this pair at Old Navy (they’re $19 now!), and they’re perfect with a chambray button-up.    Justin’s nut butter single packs. I always have one in my work backpack or purse, just for emergencies. The hazelnut chocolate rocks my world.  This exfoliating cleanser. I went into LUSH to pick some up, […]

It’s finally here!

Hiiii! How’s your Monday going? Hope you’re enjoying the day so far! This morning’s planned run turned into a nice walk instead. My legs are still sore from Saturday! It’s the kind of sore that didn’t seem like it would be going away when I started running, so I just kept it slow and enjoyed […]

9/13: Friday faves

-A reunion with Mexican food. Since we all decided that I’m not about to attempt the glorious Italian food we ate -guess we’ll just have to go back one day!- I’m sticking with what I know. Like enchis. I had a little helper in the kitchen, and there’s no doubt that she made them even […]

Dance Salad + Soli Beat bloopers

This post is extra exciting to me because I finally get to tell you about DANCE SALAD. Please keep in mind that I have some challenges telling real jokes, and explaining inside jokes is next to impossible, but I’m going to go ahead and give this a whirl anyway. If you don’t find it as […]
