Happy Friday!

I’ve had a funky week.  The Love Nugget has had a cold and rather than being down and out, he’s seemed to have more energy than I can handle.  Or maybe I’ve just had less energy this week… Everyday I’ve woken up and gone to bed with a headache which has made it a tough week to say the least.  Yesterday was national wine day and for the first time in this pregnancy I was majorly craving a nice glass of vino.  Instead I had a small glass of kombucha and parked it on the couch with my feet up.  Thankfully tonight The Love Nugget has a date night at school so we are going to a movie.  It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to a movie that wasn’t a kids movie so looking forward to that 🙂

On another note, to boost my mood and maybe some of yours, I’m joining Heather for some Friday Favorites!

Favorite Workout – I did this one day last week before one of my classes and loved it!  Trying to get used to the slower paced workouts still but really enjoying being able to stay somewhat active through pregnancy 🙂

Friday Favorites #18 and Super Easy Granola Recipe!

Happy Friday friends!

Do you have a three-day weekend?  Four day weekend?  The Love Nugget is off school today and Monday.  We don’t have a ton of plans just a few fun things around our area.  We’ve had gorgeous weather this week so today we’re meeting some friends for lunch and outside play.  Then dinner with friends tonight at an outdoor restaurant.  Tomorrow we’re going to breakfast then The Hubby has something planned for my birthday, Sunday we plan to do some things at home then relax together with sushi and a family movie night.  I’m sure Monday will be here before we know it and hopefully we’ll be headed outdoors somewhere to play while the weather is still nice.  Speaking of the nice weather… Since our backyard is drying up the landscapers are supposed to start next week!!!! Beyond excited to have grass instead of mud 🙂

Like I said, we have a busy fun day planned today so I’m just popping in to share a few favorites from our week and around the web.

Favorite reminder – After a rough start to my Thursday, I looked outside and saw a gorgeous sunrise.  Even though my morning wasn’t the best, my perspective on it changed as I stepped outside and looked at the beauty the new day was bringing.

Hi friends!

Hope you had a wonderful week!  We just got back from Disneyland and had such a great time!  Well… until our final night.  The stomach flu hit our group hard but we made it home safely and  I’ll be sharing all about our trip later next week.  In the meantime, here’s a few favorites from around the web to kick your Friday off 🙂

Favorite Treat – Oh my this “Ice Cream” sandwich looks so good!  I’m loving anything with peanut butter these days so this is right up my pregnancy craving alley 🙂

Happy Friday!

Hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for the weekend!  I know I am even though we don’t have any big plans.   Well, I take that back.  Saturday we have a date night planned which I know The Hubby and I are both looking forward to.  Other than that we might start planning the nursery and organizing our spare rooms.  Better to start sooner than later.  At least for me, an over planner 🙂

Speaking of pregnancy, I’m linking up today with Heather for her Friday Favorites and sharing a few pregnancy favorites from my first trimester!

Good morning friends!

Happy Friday to you all.  Do you have holiday parties and festivities lined up for the weekend?  We have a get together at Afterburn tonight then The Hubby’s Holiday party tomorrow night.  Which is always a good time.  Although I still don’t have anything to wear to either…  I was sort of waiting to see what was going to fit with my growing butt, thighs, chest, belly.  I had also banked on a dress I ordered from Rent the Runway.  Unfortunately it came last night and did not fit 🙁  So I’m off to Nordstrom today to see if I can find something…  Wish me luck!

I haven’t done a Friday Favorite’s in awhile so today I’m joining Heather for her Friday Favorite link up party.  Hope you enjoy!

Favorite Holiday Treat – Peppermint Bark is one of my favorite Holiday Treats.  However, I don’t like to buy it because it usually has junk in it 🙁  While this recipe isn’t necessarily healthy it’s definitely simple and has only a few ingredients 🙂

Friday Favorites #14

The past few days have been so long!  The Love Nugget still isn’t feeling 100% so we’ve been having a lot of rest time.  Which is nice for a day but it gets old.  At least for us busy bodies!

He’s home one more day today but is tagging along with me to Afterburn for a few classes.  It’s not the most ideal but it works and he’s not at school spreading his germs to the other kids.

On another note, it’s Friday!  Woo hoo!  Today I’m linking up with Heather with a few favorites from our week and around the web

Favorite Seasonal Fruit – Mandarins from the farmers market!  Yum!

Friday Favorites – All things Fall!

Friday Favorites – All things Fall!

It was officially fall a few weeks ago but we are just now getting closer to fall like temperatures. Well, I say that then remember that I just checked the weather and it will be in the 90s again this weekend 🙁 Not what I consider, cool, crisp, fall weather. All the same we are making the most of this fall by enjoying all things revolving around one of my favorite times of the year.

In the spirit of fall I thought I’d share a few Fall favorites as I join Heather for her Friday Favorites link up party!

First up, a few favorites from our week 🙂

Favorite Date Night – The Hubby and I enjoyed a Monday night out at Paul Martin’s this past week.  So nice to have some alone time and yummy food!

Happy Friday friends!

AND happy second day of October!  I love this month around this area as there is just so much fun, fall things to do. harvest festivals, pumpkin patch visits, farm tours, fall farmers markets, oh and of course what The Love Nugget is so excited for, Halloween!  This year he’s decided he wants to be an astronaut for Halloween.  Not just any astronaut but the one from Pottery Barn Kids.

Which happens to be $70!  Seriously!?!  When did costumes get so expensive?  I wish I was crafty and could make a cute one like my mom used to make me.  True story one year she made me be a bunch of grapes and taped purple balloons all over a green sweat suit.  I couldn’t sit down all night!

The Love Nugget and I are heading out-of-town for my nephews birthday tomorrow so tonight we are having a family fun night.  Hopefully a stop into the Halloween store to look for a cheaper astronaut costume 🙂

Anyway, I skipped a few weeks of Friday Favorites but am joining Heather on this lovely Friday for a few favorites from our week and around the web 🙂

Friday Favorites

Favorite Family – Evening walks with all my boys now that the weather is finally cooling down 🙂

Favorite seasonal – Fall Sunsets.  There is just something so amazing about the sky this time of year.  Gorgeous and makes the evening drives home from teaching so much more enjoyable 🙂

Favorite morning – One of my goals this month is to make it to yoga at least once a week.  Thursday The Hubby said he could take The Love Nugget to school so I jumped at the opportunity to head to the 6:00am yoga class.  Then I spent an hour before training at my favorite local coffee shop sipping on a decaf Pooh Bear Latte while getting some work done.

Now a few favorites from around the web…

Favorite Beverage – This refreshing, homemade ginger ale sounds soo good!

Favorite Treat – I went to make these Paleo Pumpkin Cookies the other day but we were out of eggs 🙁  Ever since I’ve been craving them so need to make ASAP!

Favorite Style – It’s fall!  AND finally cooling down.  Which makes me want to put on big cozy sweaters, leggings, boots, and scarves.  I’m loving the big floppy hat right now but never know how to wear it.  This outfit looks so cute but yet comfy!

Favorite Halloween – So The Love Nugget is terrified of the scary Halloween decor.  He won’t even walk down the aisle that has Halloween decoration at Target.  I don’t know how he’s going to go Trick-or-Treating but honestly if he decides to skip it this year I’m okay with that 😉  Our neighborhood gets all decked out though so I want to decorate without making him sacred to enter our house.  This friendly Halloween front porch looks welcoming and festive!

Favorite Surprise Shipment – It’s always fun to get packages at your door.  Especially when those packages contain gorgeous lingerie that I might not otherwise buy for myself.

I’m a creature of habit so I tend to stick to the same boring bras and panties without venturing out.  So when I was invited to be a ThirdLove ambassador I jumped at the chance to try out new, pretty bra and panty sets!

ThirdLove really focus’ on creating comfortable, beautiful bras that are made to fit real women.  They offer half sizes as well as a wonderful app that allows you to size yourself in less than 5 minutes.

All their bras are designed with thoughtful details such as;

  • Removable pads that even out your cleavage
  • Breathable foam that bans boob sweat forever
  • Multi-way straps that complement every outfit
  • Tagless (scratch-free!) foam-lined bra hooks

Like I said above I tend to buy the same bra over and over again so I was a bit concerned I wouldn’t like the change.  However, after slipping into my ThirdLove bra I was immediately in love.  It was so comfortable and literally felt as if I was wearing nothing without making me look like a 9-year-old boy 😉

That’s it for today folks!  Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and amazing fall weekend!

QUESTIONS – 

  • Any fun fall type activities planned this weekend?  
  • Have you heard of ThirdLove?  
  • Favorite bra brand? 

Disclosure: Through my relationship with Sweat Pink and as a ThirdLovelies Ambassador, and I received this shipment free of charge. 

Friday Favorites + 5 Ingredient Breakfast Cookies!

Happy Friday!

Man this weekend came fast.  Did anyone else feel like they just blinked and the week was gone?  I guess it’s a good thing since I have a fun weekend planned with my girls!  Can’t wait to relax in Tahoe with the two of them.  We have dinner planned on the lake tonight, a hike tomorrow morning followed by a wine and brew fest in North Star Village.  So looking forward to catching up and relaxing 🙂

It wasn’t until I sat down last night and was browsing online that I realized today is September 11th.  A day that will never be forgotten.

I can vividly remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, who I was with and the explosion of emotions I felt.  Memories that I’m sure I’ll always remember but wish I never had.  My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones on that day.
