I hope you are ready for an amazing weekend and that you have lots of running and delicious food in store for you! I thought I would share some of my favorites things lately!
-It was my sister’s bday yesterday (even though I am pretty sure she doesn’t age) and she wanted to celebrate with some good ol’ fashioned Cafe Rio salads. It is pretty nice that my best friends are my sissy and my mom… it makes things real simple.
-My mom and sister both have the ‘prefer lemon desserts over chocolate desserts’ gene (I did not inherit this one) and so I brought her favorite Magelby’s cake for dessert.
-I think Brooke’s love for Target has surpassed my own love for Target… I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
-Meg D sent this on over to me… best idea ever. And now I want a nap.
-Toast/almond butter/apple afternoon snack. All three ingredients are delicious on their own and then when combined… it just takes it to the next level.
-It is kind of hard to see it in this picture but a nice veggie tray is a current favorite. They make it so much easier for us to snack on veggies throughout the day because everything is already bite size, ready to eat and they offer a fun variety.
-When Brooke is wearing matching PJs with her doll.
Multiple choice question. Who was more excited about her new American Girl Doll?
Answer key: A. Definitely A but B was also pretty excited about it too. I just have way too many memories with Molly and Kirsten when I was a little girl and I was stoked for Brooke to start playing with her own doll too.
-That I am enjoying strength training more and more. After my run yesterday I was actually kind of excited for some squats. Fake it to make it?
-I swear every.single.day Brooke gets more and more fun. We can joke around now, have somewhat real conversations and she is constantly surprising me with how smart she is… It’s pretty great right now.
-A recipe blog that I just fell in love with… every recipe she posts makes me drool and Brooke and I will be making this turkey chili for dinner next week!
-LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Jada and this interview was spot on. I love how she talks about taking care of herself in order to take care of others… I think a lot of us run for this very reason!
-My main squeeze is back in town and that meant we went to celebrate with tuna tataki and sushi.
Sushi is one of those things I could eat every day of my life and be happy.
-I hate that this made it to a Friday Favorite but somehow I am sucked back into this show again.
Let’s talk about some Fashion Favorites as of late! I’ll include the items/links that I get the most questions/emails about!
PS if any of the items are from Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, J Crew or Madewell… if they aren’t on sale right now, always wait a day or two to buy them until they do go on sale. I don’t remember the last time I bought anything from these stores for full price because they always have 30-40% sales randomly.
-Sweaters and shirts—> Warmlight Pullover Sweater, Lace Sweatshirt (I wore this all of the time last winter and now it is on sale!!), lace-stitch crew pull-over and the Tippi Sweater. I’ve been wearing this classic white button up once a week because I love it so much and my current favorite plaid. Love this track tee too!
-Pants—> Moto Ponte Pant (comfortable and I love the detail at the knees), Moto Leggings in Olive and the Pixie Pant (my mom picked out these for a fancier dinner that I had last month and I love them)!
-The most comfortable booties you will ever own. My feet were having problems with plantar from wearing non-comfy shoes all day long so I made the switch. These are cheaper in the store than they are online… they have one store in SLC and one in Newport Beach.
-The other shoes I am loving for looks and comfort these days are Vans—> I’ve been sporting these ones all of the time and these or these ones are on my Birthday List (ahem… about a month until I am 30!?!?!)
Anyone else prefer lemon desserts over chocolate desserts? Or does chocolate always come #1 in your life?
Who else is watching The Bachelor this season?
