Things I’m Loving Friday #70

I am SO happy today is Friday!!! Why? Because the minute this blog post is published, I’m off to the airport for a weekend in Florida with some of my very best friends from college!


Our friend Leah’s baby shower is on Saturday and we’re all heading to Sarasota to celebrate and spend some quality time with the mama-to-be. I can’t wait to see some of my favorite people in the whole world!

But first, let’s dive right into your usual Things I’m Loving Friday post where we all chat about what we’re loving most every week! Below you will find a list of things that are making me smile and, as always, I’d love to hear all about what you’re loving in the comments section of this post.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Things I’m Loving Friday

  • This Workout

Weekend Circuit Workout

When the alarm went off this morning, I was determined to move my body and sweat a little since I’m traveling today and know I’ll be spending most of the day sitting. I completed this old weekend circuit workout I posted on the blog back in 2012 and loved the way it combined cardio and some quick strength training exercises. Fast and efficient! 

  • A “Receipt Holder” Mini Binder

Target Mini Binder

I picked up this little folder from the $1 section at Target and started using it to store my receipts related to blog/business expenses. I love having a more organized system and think the little binder is rather cute, too. Win, win!

blog comment

(Above comment from the wonderful Lindsey)

If you want to smile, check out the comments section of yesterday’s post for some feel-good vibes! I don’t know why, but reading all of your comments yesterday made me so darn happy. (And I think it’s amazing that so many of us apparently share an intense love for new socks. Ha!)

  • Fleece Sweatpants (… and Homeland, of course)


Oh heaven! I don’t know what it is about slipping into a pair of cozy fleece sweatpants at the end of a long day, but I feel like the moment I put them on, my whole body relaxes. They’re just so darn cozy! I’ve been loving a pair of Reebok fleece sweatpants I bought back in the spring and though I cannot find the exact pair online any more, these are similar. (Love the coral color!) I also think these skinny sweatpants from Old Navy are too cute!! 

  • Self Magazine Shout Out

I was so, so excited to see this little feature in SELF Magazine this month! Thank you very much to the magazine for including me and to a bunch of you for emailing me to let me know about the shout out as well. You guys are the best!

light caesar dressing

I bought this Marzetti dressing on a whim last week and am so pleased with it! It’s a lighter version of your basic Caesar dressing but it’s made with yogurt and doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, ingredients, etc. It’s delicious!

Spinning Instructor Certification Overview


I just arrived home from teaching a Spinning class, so what better time to type up a summary of my Spinning Training and Certification experience than now!?

I tried to address all of the questions I received from … [Continue reading...]

Things You Love More Than You Should


I have a totally random blog post topic to discuss this morning, but first, let’s wake up with breakfast. Oh hey, yogurt bowl! It’s been a while, huh? (Pay no attention to the woman in the spoon…) Today’s breakfast included a strawberry Greek yogurt bowl topped with oats and sliced almonds. I was really craving overnight oats but since I … [Continue reading...]

Coconut Butter Salmon


If you stopped by the blog early last week, you may remember my blog post all about the delicious Paleo cooking class Ryan and I took through Charlotte-based Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen.
