Hi friends! FRIDAY DANCE! What are you up to this weekend? We have some fun events to look forward to: a birthday party, night out with friends, and farmer’s market/relaxing.
Last night, the Pilot met up with some of the guys, so Livi and I got ready for a little mama-daughter date at Ranchos (<— AWESOME Mexican food in OB with a huge selection of vegan and raw foods).
In standard Friday fashion, here are some faves from the week and around the web! As always, I love to hear what you’re loving, too (books, eats, gear, outfits) if you’d like to join in the fun and shout it out in the comments section.
HIIT It! is a finalist for the INDIEFAB awards for Health (adult-nonfiction) for 2014!!! So so excited and honored to have been included. <3
Having friends in town this week. I’ve already mentioned this a couple of times, but it’s been so awesome to hang out with familiar faces. Livi has been able to play with one of her best friends (they’re 4 days apart and have been friends since they were 6 months old). While I obviously love it here in San Diego (so much), and am so thankful for the wonderful friends we’ve met here, I miss our Tucson tribe. It’s always exciting when they come up here for a visit!
Stitch Fix (<— affiliate link) now has maternity and petite sizes! If you’re expecting, just update your profile with your due date so your stylist can pick some maternity-friendly styles for you. I’m really excited about the petite sizes, too. Since I’m not very tall, petite dresses and skirts are almost always a better fit.
Finishing What Alice Forgot. The end was SO good, and while I liked Big Little Secrets more, I liked What Alice Forgot even more thanThe Husband’s Secret. In my process of reading everything by Liane Moriarty, I downloaded Three Wishes last night (but haven’t started yet).
(Snack while Kindle-reading at Liv’s gymnastics class: goat’s milk plain yogurt, berries, cinnamon and a spoonful of strawberry jam)
7 cultural concepts we don’t have in the US (love that forest bathing was on the list!)
Trader Joe’s has shredded unsweetened coconut! The ultimate test: macaroons
Digging into some yoga reading! So excited to start teacher training next week. <3
Happy happy Friday! Hope you have an amazing morning.
Something to do: Check in for today’s workout heeeeere 🙂
Workout of the day: this squat burner! It’s a great way to strengthen the lower body and also try some of my fave squat variations
