Fitness Friday + a few favorites from the week

Fitness Friday + a few favorites from the week

Happy Friday!

I’m so glad it’s the weekend!  This week was a long one for some reason.  A long, but good one 🙂  Remember how I had made some goals to try to balance my life a little more?  I’ve been doing really good and have been feeling much better lately.  Speaking of those goals and balance, here’s a few favorites from this week.

Painting with the Love Nugget

Taking the Love Nugget to see Santa last weekend, even though he didn’t love it 🙂

Friday – ???  Something, just not sure what yet 🙂

The Love Nugget and I also have a few errands to run today and after yesterday’s crazy line at the Costco photo center, we’ll be heading out early to try and beat the crowds.  The hubby and I are going to his company Christmas party tomorrow which is always a lot of fun.  They really treat their employee’s like family and put together a fun night of dinner, cocktails, dancing, and then put us all up in a nice hotel for the evening.  Such a fun thing to do during the holiday’s 🙂  The Love Nugget will be spending the weekend with auntie Gigi!  He is so excited!

In case you missed it this week, check out my post on Fitmixer with my 80/20 plan for eating as well as two yummy holiday treats!

  1. I can’t wait to hear about your Favorite Things Party! So sorry to miss it. My favorite moment from this week was taking a walk and collecting leaves with Keenan to make a rustic wreath or collage! Have fun at the party this weekend!

      I know I wish you could have made it! So much fun! We want to do another around mothers day. Leaf collecting is so much fun with kiddos! Ayden and I did it around Thanksgiving and he loved finding TONS of leaves. Hope you have a great time in Nevada City this weekend!
