Happy Friday! I’m a little bummed that our Friday night camping plans were thwarted by David’s unpredictable work schedule, but that’s the way life goes. However, I am excited that I’ll still be heading down to the ATL on Saturday for a friend’s wedding! It will be nice to catch up with my college girl friends and celebrate mine and David’s 6th anniversary in a hotel room by myself- haha. We’ll celebrate year 7 babe! And while I have a long intro going, I’m going to shout out a super HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dad who celebrates another fabulous year on Sunday!
This coming weekend perfectly sums up the May I have ahead of me… crazy and busy! I can’t wait.
But first, I’m really digging some fun things lately…
Whole Foods Bulk Salts – these jars of goodness have been hiding in plain site and I just discovered them after a friend pointed them out. There are multiple salt and spice blends and they are incredible for adding some oomph to basic dishes. This smoky fireside blends fired up the sauteed veggies I used for our fajitas
This girl. (and my other sweet girl, but I don’t have a picture of her at the moment!)
Now that she’s walking, I could justify buying her sandals and found THESE adorable ones from OshKosh at Target!
Green Juices. I loved the Lumi juices I got to try, but haven’t been able to find them near me yet. Still, I find myself grabbing a new drink to try fairly often, the greener/less sweet the better because I have a thing for self punishment. I’m only kind of kidding, but I try to stay away from the high sugar of the more fruits variety. Recently I tried Temple Turmeric.
It drew me in since turmeric is fabulous for the brain and has anti-inflammation properties as well. If you are a green drink lover, I recommend trying this one! It is not sweet, but I really loved it.
Spring Sandals. Not to be outdone by my girls, I splurged on some new shoes for me too.
Forgive the blurriness, as I am not accustomed to taking shoe selfies, but I really love these Wedges from Michael Kors that I snagged from Nordstrom (free online shipping and returns!). They bring back a little bit of pre-kids me when I used to try to dress cute and loved my heels. Wedges make it easier to walk, which I guess is important, and I plan on wearing these with everything from jeans to shorts to dresses. (Does that justify my purchase, David?)
My friend, and fellow blogger, Jen recently released her incredible book, At first I wondered how there could be a whole book on planks, but now I see how much I didn’t know and I love it! So many of the variations and moves highlighted in the book are used in my bootcamp workouts and are seriously great strength moves. I love how Jen breaks down the movements to ensure proper form, because if you aren’t doing it right, it kind of defeats the purpose of the exercise.
She is also hosting a month-long ultimate plank challenge that starts today so check it out!
That about sums it up for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and just in case you are part of the 1% that hasn’t seen this gem yet,
What are you loving lately?
