Friday Favorites – 5/18/18

Happy Friday! How has your week been? Ready for the weekend? It’s been a good week, but I am definitely ready for the weekend! We have some fun little events to look forward to, so it should be a good one. Before we get to the weekend though, let’s talk favorites from the week!  While it was a good one, it was also a busy one, and I took very few pictures, little bit of a fail on my part.

This week we introduced the kids to the awesomeness of the public library, which was a sweet little moment. My little girl literally walked into the children’s section, gasped, and squealed “look at all the books!” It was so adorable she didn’t even get shushed for being loud in the library. I was also pretty excited to see a new to us Pig the Pug book, as we have one and it is a favorite. Also, it’s never to early to get started on physics, right?

I also managed to sneak in a little self care time and get a manicure this week. Which was desperately needed, I think it had been 5-6 months since I had gotten one and my hands were in rough shape. It’s always so nice to have pretty (or at least prettier) nails.

I have also been enjoying some new snacks, courtesy of Shrewd Foods this week. When they offered to send me some of their snacks to try out, I was thrilled. Chips and other salty snacks are a weakness of mine and I love the idea of satisfying the craving while getting a little protein boost. The Baked Cheddar flavor tastes exactly like what you would expect from a delicious cheese puff, though the texture is a little different. I am a cheese lover in all forms, so I was expecting that the Baked Cheddar flavor would be an easy favorite, but I must say my favorite is the Brickoven Pizza. You can check them out at Shrewd Food, and of course you can find them on Amazon.

In workouts this week, I made it to two Orangetheory classes and an amazing yin yoga class, in addition to a few shorter cardio workouts sprinkled throughout the week. I don’t really view yin yoga as a workout, instead I see it as the perfect counter to higher impact workouts. It definitely helps me loosen up a bit and I always feel so relaxed after.

Around the inter webs:

I love this article on how to feel like you have more time, perception is everything sometimes.

This Citrus spring bowl looks so good!

Why am I not already making my own Cold brew? Can’t wait to check out cold brew pitchers.

What are you loving this week? Any weekend plans?

Hope you have a great one, I will see you Monday!

  1. taking children to the library is a great thing and it is never too early to introduce them to physics. my boys always loved getting non-fiction books at the library something about the photographs in addition to learning something new was a huge appeal.

    1. I was amazed at all the STEM books they had for toddlers. It is always so fun to visit libraries.

    1. I kind of thought that would be the case as well, but there are actually tons of people there each time I have been recently and I definitely think it will be part of our summer routine with the kids.

    1. Thanks! It was a nice treat to get that manicure! It was fun, I am thinking we will go pretty regularly this summer.

    1. Thanks lady! I get pedicures a little more often, it’s so relaxing, but my hands definitely needed some tlc. Hope you are having a great Friday!

  2. Ohh those snacks look good! That’s so cute about your daughter at the library, and MOST public libraries don’t get too upset with slightly louder kids. It just happens these days (I worked at one for three years lol). LOVE your manicure.

    1. Thanks! We were doing our best to keep them quiet, but she was just really excited. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I would love to get a manicure, I think it’s been about 10 months since my last! I might have to follow your lead on that. I love taking my kids to the library, we go every other week and load up on tons of library books.
