Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday and I hope you have a lovely Memorial Day weekend. I’ll definitely be taking time this weekend to think of our service members who made the ultimate sacrifice and their families. <3

What do you have going on? The girls are PUMPED for an end-of-the year sleepover with friends, we have a birthday party, a BBQ at my dad’s, and lots of time at the pool. I’m definitely looking forward to it! I hope you have a fun and wonderful weekend ahead.

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I love hearing about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.

Fitness + good eats:

Summer Shape Up plans went out today! We start the party on Tuesday and it’s not too late to join in. If you want your 14-day fitness plan and meal ideas, enter your email address here. We’re going to spend the weekend getting ready to go and hit the ground running on Tuesday. I love hosting these challenges each year as a way to find new motivation, consistency in our routine, and be surrounded by a community working together. This year, I feel like we need it more than ever! So many of us spent the last year scrambling and were unable to find a true routine. This is the perfect opportunity to stack up some fitness wins and build consistency as we head into the summer months.

We finally got an air fryer! I’ve been wanting one for a couple of years now, and every time I’d press “buy now” I’d chicken out and abandon cart. I FINALLY went for it and I have no clue why I waited this long. It was super easy to use and the salmon was SO SO good. (I used the pre-marinated salmon teriyaki from Costco.) I can’t wait to cook ALL THE THINGS in it!

We had an awesome date night at Hacienda del Sol. We always forget to use it as a date night option, which is ridiculous because the view is magical, they have great food and service, and on the patio, they often have some type of live music. We shared a cheese board and the buffalo cauliflower (this is what inspired the air fryer purchase) and for my entree, I had the market salad with tuna.

Love nights out with this good-looking guy.

Dress is Banjanan but I found it on ThredUp!

(I noticed there was a mama bird sitting on her nest in the planter next to me as soon as we took this pic!)

Read, watch, listen:

Did anyone watch the Friends reunion? What do you think is the Friends of our generation? I feel like the closest I’ve found is Schitt’s Creek..

    Sounds lame, but all the Alexia brand potatoes (fries, tots, etc) come out SO GOOD in the air fryer.

    What do you mean by “our generation”?

    • Fitnessista on May 31, 2021 at 4:47 pm

      Where did I put that? Lol. I swear I proofread my posts

    You asked “what do you think is the Friends of our generation?” I wasn’t sure how to answer the question because I’m not sure of the definition of “our generation”. Anyway, we had a discussion over dinner the other night and some suggestions were The Office and Modern Family!
