Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy weekend to ya. What do you have going on? I’m super pumped because my BFF Betsy is flying in from San Diego this morning.

W betsy 2

We have a fun weekend planned, including lots of spa time, so I’ll be sure to recap some of the adventure’s in Monday’s post. Besides getting some much-needed R&R time, I’m also looking forward to taco night with the fam, and decorating for Christmas. I’d love to hear what you’re up to!

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. This is where I share some of my favorite finds, reads, wears, and links from the week and around the web. Please share a fave in the comments section if you’d like to join in the fun!


We went over to Kyle and Meg’s house for an impromptu Friendsgiving, and had the most delicious feast. It definitely put me in the Thanksgiving mood because all of the beloved staples were there: mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, brussels sprouts with pancetta and pomegranate seeds, and Kyle’s famous Thanksgiving turkey. I’ve always been kind of meh about turkey until I had Kyle’s; it’s legendary. (He made it differently this year… he never uses a recipe and just wings everything… but here’s the recipe he gave me a couple of years ago that’s magical.

– If you’ve had your eye on a Fit Guide, next week is the chance! I’m going to be hosting a ton of deals for Thanksgiving week – the Home Workout Warrior plan is perfect for holiday travel – and for the first time ever, you’ll have a chance to get the Post Baby Bod plan at a discount. Each day next week, I’ll have a different offer going live!

The Greatest Showman: Reimagined comes out today. They launched 3 songs in advance, and I’ve been listening to Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Never Enough nonstop, so I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.

Welp, don’t need to see the movie because the trailer made me cry enough.

Fashion + beauty:

SO many great picks happening in the Nordstrom fall sale right now:

This cozy pullover, this dress (I have the tank version and it’s so comfy and flattering), grey Uggs, this tunic (I have so many colors and love them for every day), these over-the-knee boots, this gorgeous satchel, these animal suits (totally ordered them for the girls) and this beautiful coat.

    Hi… totally random question but does Meg still have an instagram? I loved following her because she was so real about motherhood but now I don’t see her anywhere. I follow her podcast but she never posts. Just hoping she’s doing ok!
