Friday Favorites.

We are doing another blogger meet-up (you DON’T have to have a blog to come….I want to hang out with everyone!!!).  I am telling you….. if you live close you should definitely come.  Just a bunch of girls talking about running, food, life and eating delicious frozen yogurt at the same time.  We are meeting at 1 PM on Saturday, April 2 at (take a wild guess) Yogurtland on University Parkway (it is across the street south from the University Mall).

I hit up the elliptical in the A.M. for a sweatastic workout.

This is my ‘morning peeps, I’m still waking up and bored out of my mind’ on the elliptical face.

After school I am going to the gym for some cycling and weight lifting with the sister (come back tomorrow for a killer strength training workout) and then we have a PT appointment together followed by another sister donut date.

Let’s talk about my favorite things this BEAUTIFUL Friday!!!

First up, we now get to have PE outside…..HALLELUJAH!  Before you know it my legs will no longer resemble marshmallows.

Second, Ponytails.  They make me feel young, athletic and like a rock star.  Along with poinytails is that Friday is casual day at school.  Doesn’t get better than that folks.

P.S. Taking a picture of the back of your head in the bathroom mirror is hard work and don’t worry I will brush my hair today at some point.

Third favorite thing about Friday is that my student teacher brought me M&M peanut butter filled easter eggs.  I think she may want a good evaluation or something and she knows the key to my soul.

Why didn’t I take a picture of the bag before it was empty….this is awkward.

Hope you are having an amazing weekend my blogeroo’s.  Keep me updated on everything:)

Ooh, easter candy! How did I not notice that before now??

I always wear a ponytail. I'd say 6 days a week. Drying/styling/brushing is way too much effort when I'm just going to sweat it up in a few hours.

I have a ponytail today!! I have been trying to actually do my hair more days than I don't this week for once ;)

Reply

I love the pony tail pic! You are too funny!! I wear a ponytail EVERY SINGLE DAY! Haha I'm so lazy, but who cares! I only wear my hair down if it's some sort of special occasion! We are supposed to have a beautiful weekend here with temps in the 80s on Sunday! Jealous of your blogger meet up!!!

Reply

Your blog is my favorite!! I went to a spin class the other day and it just wasn't the same with out you up there teaching me! It has been in the 80s here in Texas for a while…it is fabulous. This week I wore my hair up 4 out of the five days, that is sad.

Reply

Holy cow, I need those m&ms right now! Send them my way!

It snowed here today :( but it's supposed to be nice this weekend.

I'm excited tonight for pizza and a movie date with Mike and Bungee. It's going to be awesome :)

Happy Friday to you!

I just found your blog and I love it, it is great! Come to find out we have run some races together, and I happen to have a moose trophy like the one you are holding in your pictures on your race page.

I agree Fridays are great, my favorite being no school and planning lessons for a few days.

Wearing a ponytail: probably 3-4 days a week to work, but on the other days it usually ends up in a ponytail by the end of the day. :)

I see you are running Boston, good luck in a few weeks and have tons of fun!

Reply

My favorite thing about MY Friday?? No work this weekend! YES!

Ugh. It SNOWED in Boston today. And it is still on the ground. It better melt. I'm sick of this SHIZ!

I for sure wear my hair in a pony while at work and since I work 3 days a week… that would equal 3 PONY TAIL DAYS! I've got mad math skillz.

Don't even get me started on Easter candy. I'm going to be super depressed when this holiday ends and all my favorite candies go away (Um, Cadbury eggs? SweetTart jelly beans? Peeps? So sad.)

K, I am FLYING across the ocean for your meet-up!! And cos Utah looks so darn GORGEOUS!! Woah those mountains…so SO pretty!! Just like that pic of you on the elliptical:)

Lol I wear a ponytail 99% of the time cos I'm just too lazy to have my hair down! And I'm using my Friday night for baking. There are brownies in the oven right now…

Have a GREAT Friday friend!!

Reply

What I like about this Friday is that I have a date night with my boyfriend! yesss

I wear a ponytail most days… I'm too lazy to do my hair. If I have something fun planned on the weekends I'll wear my hair down.

IT IS NOT WARMING UP IN NEW YORK :-( It snowed today!!! whattt!??!?!

ummm I might need to go and buy those M&M's once I'm out of work!

Reply

question: how do you get bored on the elliptical but not the treadmill? i always think the elliptical is less boring because i can read a magazing or something, but when i run i am to jostled to do that! ha. anyway. just curious :)

Reply

Oh my gosh! The scenery behind your PE field is amazing! I also teach PE but I see nothing but flat land beyond our fields. Lucky girl you are!

Pony tail or messy bun every single day of the week I'm working! I tried to wear my hair down to work once and only lasted one period.

Love love love the peanut butter m&m's!

Reply

Love this weather in Utah! Gotta take advantage of it because it will most likely be short lived.

I may or may not have eaten half a bag of pretzel m&m's last night. um oops! I hadn't ever tried them and I seriously couldn't stop.

Happy Friday! I can't wait to see you at the blogger/runner/most awesome people in the world date tomorrow. :)

Reply

Typically my hair is down all day at work but the minute I get home, it's up on top of my head in a messy ball ponytail.
The weather is definitely warming up here too! I'm planning on having a movie couch night, I'm planning to rent The Fighter, heard it's fantastic movie.
I haven't tried the peanut butter m&m's but I love peanut butter and chocolate, so I may have to put them on my list! Have a great day!

Reply

I think I probably wear a ponytail every single day, or at least some variation of it. It may not be for the whole day, but at some point the hair will be goin' up.

My plans were to go to work, but I made a wise decision to call in sick; I barely have a voice, I'm sniffling and coughing, and I just don't think people really want me touching their food today! So instead I'll be staying home, working on my wonderful paper, and maybe doing some yoga.

It's finally warming up again! It was amazing to go for a run in shorts and a tank top! Gotta work on those weird tan lines…

Reply

PE outside!? Bliss…

Reply

Love the weather!! I wear my hair in a ponytail quite often too :) But the best M&M's are almond M&M's-fo sho!! Wish I could come to the meetup, but I'll be out of town :( Have fun though!

Lovin the outside- a date with rollerblades and my husband are in store!!

Reply

It's downright HOT here today! I wear a doubled over ponytail pretty much every single day. My favorite thing about today is that my 6th grader was in a play and he did GREAT!!! Proud mommy moment for sure :)

Reply

I wear a ponytail every single day. I wish I could wear it 24 hours. My hubs already cmplains that I wear it too much as it is.

Reply

Those mountains in the background of one pic are GORGEOUS!
I wear my hair in a ponytail about 90% of the time. Special occasions or date nights I'll take it down and brush it so my hubby doesn't get too embarrassed about me. :)

Reply

Best thing about Friday today? It is so warm outside, I'm going to go sit in the sun and read. In a skirt. That's also the answer to question #2.

And I don't eat peanut butter/chocolate combos. Just not my thing.

Reply

Only really wear my hair back when I eat (other than working out). Or if my hair's really annoying me on a given day.

It's warming up here – hope it stays! High of 9C tomorrow (48F) woo!!

I haven't tried that easter candy, looks good!! I really like the reese's peanut butter cadbury egg! yum!

Your pic outside is soo beautiful!!

Reply

That view from PE is gorgeous!

Reply

I wish I had hair long enough to pull back into a ponytail…

I haven't tried those M&M thingies… but have you tried the coconut M&Ms? They are awesome. Kind of like a Mounds or Almond Joy.

Best thing about my Friday was closing time! Whew! It was busy at work today!

Reply

I hardly ever wear a ponytail.
It's 85 here today. I spent the day soaking up some rays with some lovely ladies and their kids. If only I could move the mountains and/or beach here life would be perfect.

Reply

Hahaha, "why didn't I take a picture of the bag before it was empty…this is awkward." That made me lol.

Reply

I wear my hair in a poinytail ALL the time. As a mom, it’s easy and fast. I’m growing my hair out… but I’ll still wear it up most of the time. ha

Reply

my favorite thing would be the concert I am going to tonight! And I love ponytails

Reply

Peanut butter M&Ms are a must-have in my Easter basket. Holiday M&Ms always taste better than the regular, dontchya think?

Reply

I wear a ponytail a couple of times a week…
Glad you had a great Friday!
Here are my favs:
Movie night with mom and sis
Done with school!
Having a get together this weekend with some ministry people….aaand I'm making caramel dip! YUM!

Reply

CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU TOMORROW!!!! also…can we strength train together soon? thanks…I have been slacking lately.

I definitely wear my hair in a pony tail pretty much all the time now…it is so much easier. and it is getting wayyyy long to even have the energy to do anything with it.

I love all Easter candy…esp anything with pb and chocolate :)

see you tom!

What are YOUR FAVORITE things about your Friday?
movie night will the hubby-Black Swan maybe
buttered popcorn

How often do you wear a ponytail (besides when you are working out)?
Probably every other day (basically if I don't take a shower in the morning it's ponytail time)!!!

Is it warming up where you are at?
Hell-to-the-no, it's snowing as we "speak"!!! Gotta love Vermont!

Have you tried the pb m&m's easter egg candy?
yummo! I'm a sucker for mini-eggs and bumpy nerd jelly beans though!

Reply

um i rock the pony tail eVERY day :) Sarah and Baby D and I will be there tomorrow, cant wait to see you!! eeeek

Reply

My favorite things right now is that it is finally sunny out! Also, I'm going to a concert tonight and getting tofu.

Reply

i love the ponytail too. but i love my hair down. i typically wear my hair up when it hasn't been washed in awhile…or when i'm trying to flirt with a boy. i read somewhere when i was little that boys like to see girls necks. for whatever reason that stuck with me!

Reply

It's 85 degrees here and I am loving it! It's supposed to be 60 on Sunday, though. Boo!

Reply

I wear a ponytail probably 2-3 times a week. Actually change that to 5. I try to start the day with it down but it rarely stays there. If I didn't wear ponytails I would probably have to wash it a lot more, which is not going to happen!

It was snowing in Boston today, so I don't wish to talk about the weather :) Don't worry, it will be warm and beautiful on marathon monday!

Reply

The one thing I miss about long hair is how easy it was to throw it into a ponytail.

It only got up to 50 today, but it was sunny and glorious! We went out to dinner and now we are doing our own things for a little bit. We'll probably watch a Buffy before bed, though.

Reply

Oh.My.God. Those are my favorite. Um I have student teaching next year, can I please be yours. different states? No problem…

Reply

1. Probably seven days a week. I'm awful.
2. It snowed all day in NH today. My half marathon is on Sunday, and a few miles of it are on a dirt road. I'm FREAKING out because it's going to be SO muddy!! Ugh! Is it spring yet??
3. I haven't tried it, but they sound to die for!! I did have normal pb m&ms last night, though. I got some coconut ones for jake so I'd feel slightly less guilty.

Reply

Silly girl!! You make me laugh :) Yes, to pony tails and PB M&Ms!!!

Reply

How often do I wear a ponytail? Clearly, we've never met. Ummm, all the time. Those mountains in the background of PE class … breath-taking. I can't imagine running with such beautiful scenery. And the M+M's look right up my 'how can you go wrong mixing PB and choc' alley. I need to try them soon!

Reply

I looooove casual Fridays!!! We also have "spirit days" on Wednesdays – our school colors are green and white, so we call those days "greens and jeans". Love it!!

Reply

Hooray for sun and peanut butter m&m's! They are my favorites! The best part of my Friday was seeing my parents! They came to take me car shopping and out to dinner. I was so happy to see them, I missed them!

Reply

Those mountains are gorgeous! I would love living and running with those views. I rock the side/low ponytail with a headband during the week when my hair is out of control down. It's so easy & keeps my hair out of the way.

Reply

Woah dang…please tell me u take 10 deep breaths every day and take in the scenery!!!!!!! :)

Reply

OMG… is it Easter yet? The aisle of Mini Eggs and M&M Eggs at the grocery store calls to me every single time I'm in there!

Reply

I probably wear a ponytail once or twice a week.
Just have to comment that the view you have during PE is amazing! Those mountains are like right there! I've only been to Utah once, but I always tell people it was my favorite state I've ever been to.

Reply

I put my hair up pretty much whenever I get home, but leave it down for work. Unless we're at the beach. I've got serious wicked frizz head, so I have to pull it back to protect small children.

It was 45 degrees on my run this morning, so I vote "no", not warm here in Seattle. :-)

I took the day off today & enjoyed it. I'm hoping to convince my husband to download a movie with me tonight after the kids are in bed. We're party animals.

Never tried the peanut butter m&ms, but they look yummy!

Reply

I wear my hair in ponytail probably 80% of the time, it's just so easy!

Peanut butter M&M's are my favorite!!!!!! I nominated you for a blog award! Check it out!

Reply

Those M&Ms look uh-mazing!!! Im heading to CVS to grab me a bag, num num!

Reply

i usually wear my hair in a ponytail at least twice a week other than the every day pony for running!

my big friday night plans: i signed up for a run in just over two weeks that benefits MS! i am super excited :) and i bought a new jacket & headphones for running. now i'm just catching up on all the internet stuff i missed in the past two days!

and sadly i have not tried any easter candy yet. i did have a chocolate truffle "blizzard" yesterday though!

Reply

I wear my hair in a ponytail most days, more so since I cut my bangs. Bangs make a pony tail look so much more pulled together I think!

And the mountains are breathtaking!! Love that picture!

Reply

Yeah for our date tomorrow!

fyi: this post makes me want 1. a pair of red Toms. 2. easter candy… your m&m's (well…the bag) are making me crave sweets.

I love ponytails… best way to hide second day (and third day) hair. ;)

LOVING this warmer weather today!

dear janae,

can i please run into you sometime soon so you can call me "moesha" and take me back to the jr. high days? please? you are amazing and inspiring! hope all is well.

Reply

I <3 casual fridays, ponytails and being outdoors! Your pic of the "empty" bag comment made me laugh out loud. As many veggies that you cart out of Cosco, I think it will be ok. Enjoy your Easter candy!

Reply

My favorite thing about Friday is knowing I have a full weekend to look forward to! I wear a ponytail/bun nearly every day. It is wayyyy too hard to run AND do my hair in the morning. Besides, I work with mostly women ;-) No one to impress!

Reply

What are YOUR FAVORITE things about your Friday? I love going to work knowing that I have 8 hours between me and the WEEKEND!

How often do you wear a ponytail (besides when you are working out)?
Basically everyday. haha…when I leave my hair down, everyone asks where I'm going after work.

Is it warming up where you are at? What are your Friday night plans?!?!
Yeah! 52 is the high for today! Going to try to run outside for a bit to soak up some vitamin D!!! Last night was spent hitting up the gym and then crashing on the couch with the fiance while eating fettucini alfredo and watching back to back episodes of 24 on netflix!

Have you tried the pb m&m's easter egg candy?
Those are so good! Much bigger than the regular pb m&m's! Those mini cadbury eggs are amazing too. And starburst jelly beans!

Reply

Casual Friday is what I live for during the work week! I wish I had that backdrop to go outside to. I'd force my American Studies classes to go outside year-round. That's beautiful!

Reply

I spent a few minutes just staring at those mountains. Does it ever get old…I mean, do you get used to it?

Maybe it's like living in Florida and driving by the beach for me. (0:

I think the meetup is going on right now? Could be wrong, but if I'm not, hope it's a blast :)

OH, PS, I had the BEST ice cream today. It was from a little shop that is supposed to have the best ice cream in Warsaw – super creamy and delicious. I got one scoop of caramel, one scoop of Krowky (this fudgy-caramel-y candy that is very popular here… so cool that they have it as an ice cream flavor too!), and one scoop of vanilla-sour cream. I thought the vanilla would be boring, but it was the BEST vanilla I've ever had – super creamy and sweet! Hope your fro yo was good too :)

Reply

jean + popcorn days are my friday favorites!

Reply

I ate so much candy yesterday at the movies I thought I was going to puke. Then I had a WWJD moment, but inserted your name instead of Jesus. So I went and got some popcorn to balance out the salt/sugar content in my stomach! haha

Reply

My hair is too short for ponytails now, but before I cut it off I only rocked a ponytail for a run, NEVER to work, my ears stick out!

It's warm here in Georgia, Hi in the mid 80's today.

Those M&M's look amazing, I've never had them. I'm trying to eat clean during the week, but Sat. is free day. I might have to find a bag of those bad boys!
