Friday Faves (+ happy birthday, Pilot)

Hi! Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We have a fun event this Saturday, and today is the Pilot’s birthday! Livi and I are going to make a cake, and per her request, we have a piñata ready to go. Last year, his birthday was pure shenanigans. We had a surprise party at the house, with lots of tequila-soaked fruit sangria, piñata, and the infamous cork on a fork game. So, so good. This year, I have a feeling it will be a little more low-key, but Liv and I still have a couple of celebrations planned ;) 

Happy birthday to the love of my life, and an amazing daddy to our baby (and fur babies).

Some faves from the week and around the web:

The Ocean Spray PACt event. I’ll have a recap up next week, but it was even more fun than I could have imagined. Thank you so much to the blog friends who came out to work out with us! And the cranberry. It was even bigger and better than I could have imagined.


(To get an idea of the size, check out the man, who looks like a tiny ant, standing next to it. It was HUUUUUUGE!)

A special “thank you” to POPSUGAR for including my slow cooker steel cut oats recipe. It tastes like fall in a bowl; highly recommend it for a make-ahead breakfast :)

“HIIT IT!” is now available through Barnes and Noble. <3 I’m very excited and beyond thankful that they’ll be carrying the book I’ve worked so hard to create and share! A little heads up: I’ll be sending everyone who pre-orders (through B&N or Amazon) a little something to say thank you. The details on that should be up in a couple of weeks, and I am so very thankful for your support and the amazing response so far. 

Hope everyone has a very happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Any faves or awesome/hilarious/inspiring posts that you came across? Feel free to link it up in the comments!

Hi! TGIF. Hope you’ve had a wonderful week and have some fun plans to look forward to this weekend! We have a couple of fun things in the works, and I’m so excited to see Gone Girl this weekend. I know it probably won’t live up to the book, but… Ben Affleck. Some faves from the […]

Focus On: IIFYM


(If It Fits Your Macros) I’ve received a few requests to talk about macro counting, especially since it’s surged in popularity on Instagram, particularly in the past year or so. You may have seen a picture of a giant donut covered in frosting + sprinkles, or a double-stuffed pizza and the hashtag “IIFYM,” which stands […]

20-minute head to toe workout

A twenty minute head to toe workout! Fast and effective.

(all you need is a pair of dumbbells) Hi! Hope you’re enjoying the day so far. It was a perfect cloudy morning and afternoon: a trip to the library, soup in the slow cooker, and cleaning up around the house. I feel like I’m currently surrounded by a mountain of laundry, but at the same […]

Weekend adventures + Spanish fails


Hi, happy Monday! How’s the morning going so far? What a weekend. We’ve had a blast hanging out with madre and nan, and taking them to some of our favorite spots before they head back to Tucson. Liv was in heaven playing with her nanas; for me, it’s always comforting to have two significant pieces […]

Hi! How’s your day going? Hope it’s been a great one so far! We spent the morning expiring Old Town, which is always fun to explore. I feel nostalgic combing through the embroidered Mexican fabrics and gently weighing the small trinkets in my hand. Turtles with bopping heads, small saints, and Mexican skeletons dressed in […]
