5 Things to Do This Friday

Hi friends 😀 Happy weekend! Hope your morning is treating you well. Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my last post <3

So what are you up to this weekend?

If you’re not sure where the night will take you,

here are 5 fit, fun, foodie, fab, feel-good ways to take your Friday:

1. Fit: After work today, meet up with a workout buddy and try a new fitness class. Rock climbing, pole dancing, kettlebells, Dance Trance (!), hot yoga, Zumba and spin are all great options.


Already worked out this morning? Take a walk after dinner 🙂


2. Fun: movie night! Something about going to the movies on a Friday night feels sooooooo good. I still kinda want to the see the Justin Beiber movie. Any takers? Haha.

3. Foodie: try a new recipe for dinner, or plan a legendary weekend meal.


Here are some recipes that are on my radar:

Butternut squash mac n’ cheese

Cedar plank smoked salmon

Crispy shrimp tacos

Coconut lemon bars

Or, just make a legendary dessert… like a pizookie 😀

dance trance workshop 129

3. Fab: LOTS of online shopping deals this weekend!

Express spring sale

30% off sale + free shipping at J Crew

Free shipping on Nordstrom shoes

Free shipping deals at Saks and Banana

Coupon codes at VS (Spring11)

I’m still trying to convince the Pilot that I NEED this tote:


It’s reversible, so it’s really like two purses 😉

Feel-good: Book a massage, manicure/pedicure or facial. It will give you a spring treat to look forward to, and I promise you won’t regret it.

Try a slow and restorative yoga class (like Yin Yoga)

Or, you can always just take a lovely nap.


(surrounded by all of your favorite toys)

I just munched a bowl of b-fast cookie dough cereal:


and am going to take Bell for a walk before work.

See ya later today, lovelies <3



Sending love and prayers to my friends in Japan today <3

    If you love music like I think you do, you will like the Justin Bieber movie. I saw it after an ahhmazing spin ride and it just kept the amazing vibe going. I was surprised how I was so moved by all the videos of him as a child. He was so cute and talented. I used JB’s Never Say never in my last spin class and had alot of positive feedback.

    The only way I would ever do dance trance is with you!!!!

    And I love that purse! I need a new one badly.

    And thanks to you, I think I’m going to spend the rest of my night online shopping! Can’t turn down a good deal! 😉

    Ummm I saw the JB movie and loved it. I am now a huge fan. (I made fun of it before. I was so wrong.)
