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!

Moving comfort  1 of 1 2

-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.

    Hope Livi feels better but I secretly enjoy (a little) when my little man gets a little sick. Normally he is like the Tasmanian devil 24/7 so I will take my snuggles anyway I can get them.

    Also loved the blog about how long it takes to feel normal post partum. Where was this 3 years ago because I felt like there was something wrong with me when at a couple months I wasn’t feeling normal. I still don’t know if I feel like my old normal but am now enjoying my new normal. It’s a huge adjustment, hubs and I had been together for 15 yrs before we had Cole, so it was so strange going from two to three. I think this should be talked about more because the average of 4-6 weeks off work is way to little, thankfully I was able to quit working for awhile and have started a home business but I think I would have had a meltdown if I would have had to go back to working 60-70 hrs a week right after childbirth.

  23. Those veggie burgers look like a must try! Some of my favs from this week:
    Aaron hearts Hilary after all these years
    Beer and girl scout cookies:
    And this!

    Have a good weekend Gina 🙂

  24. Thanks for sharing the review!!! xoxo

    Btw, love your new workout clothes. Those capris are hottt!

  25. Those workout clothes are so gorgeous!

  26. I love that Moving Comfort tank! So cute! Those veggie patties look really good. It’s hard to find veggie patties that are gluten free!

    I also really enjoyed Caitlin’s post! Her keeping-it-real posts are some of my favorite. I’m not a mom yet, but it’s good to know these things ahead of time!
