Friday Favorites – 6/8/18

Hi friends! How are you? I have been looking forward to this weekend, so of course the week seemed to drag a bit. Glad to finally see you Friday, lol.

While the time moved slowly, it was actually a pretty fun week. We got in lots of after school/work swimming and play time, which was the perfect way to beat the very hot weather we have been having.

Another summer related favorite? Bruegger’s Bagels coconut iced coffee. I  love this coffee flavor. Knowing that it was back, I just had to treat myself to one, along with a breakfast sandwich. Eggs, bacon, muenster, and arugula on an everything bagel. It was delicious!

In other, good eats related favorites, I made these healthy peanut butter blondies at Maureen’s suggestion. They were so tasty, I will definitely be making them again.

I also had the real pleasure of getting a massage one evening this week. The hubs gave me a gift card for it for Mother’s Day and they finally had an opening that worked with my schedule. It was perfect timing, as after a couple of days of running around and swimming with the kids each evening, I was feeling a little ache-y.

Speaking of swimming with the kids, I am considering it an impromptu arm workout for the week. They love being lifted in and out and my arms were sore after a couple of days of it. Otherwise, it was a pretty tame workout week. I got a few gym workouts in, a really lovely yin yoga session, and am hitting up an early morning spin class today.

Speaking of workouts, Barre3 has a four-week challenge starting on June 17, which features free 10 minute workouts.  If you are interested, you can sign up here.  I plan on loosely following the challenge and making the most out of the free workouts.

As temperatures have stayed at over 100 degree highs over here, I have been all about salads and cooler meals.  This Crunchy Asian chopped salad from Eating Bird Food sounds delicious.

I am also thinking I need to make a batch of these falafel from Cookie and Kate to use in wraps and salads.

Now your turn, what have you been loving this week?  Any big weekend plans?  I have a few things planned, some of which are surprises to the hubs, so shhh 😉 .  Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Yeah! We can do it together, I feel like the little 10 min ones after perfect for squeezing in as an early am workout.

  1. My husband loves blondies and the fact that the ones you shared are a healthy peanut butter version is such a bonus!
