Happy Friday! It has been quite some time since I have done a Friday Favorites and I thrilled to be here this morning sharing my favorites from the week with you. What a great week we have had too. The weather has been awesome, our neighborhood is absolutely gorgeous as the leaves are changing, and we have a nice, relaxing weekend on tap.
Before we get into my favorites from the week, I need wish a Happy Birthday to my better half. Today, J celebrates his 34th Birthday and we can’t wait for him this afternoon so we can spend the weekend celebrating him! I am still working on a Birthday post for him, but until then, you can check out the tribute I wrote him last year– it all still rings true.
Friday’s Five Favorites
Now let’s get to my five favorites from this week:
Favorite Munchkin Moment
We have had just a blast this week and have spent a lot of time outside, but my absolute favorite munchkin moment had to be Thursday evening when we had some friends over for dinner. It is so much fun to hear my kids squealing with laughter with their friends- even M! I love to listen to C have conversations with her two friends and how excited she gets when she knows we are having friends come over.
I love when I can kick my own butt in my living room in 20 minutes and that is what I did on Tuesday! (You can find that workout on Instagram.) However, this week’s absolute favorite workout had to be tennis yesterday! On Thursdays I play tennis at a local club and love it. Yesterday we got to go outside and play on the clay courts and it was awesome! The weather was perfect, we had some great volleys and drills and I loved it.
I cooked all dinners at home this week and we ate one lunch out at McAlister’s. When we go to J’s office for lunch we always grab McCallisters. I can’t stop thinking about their autumn harvest squash soup. It is so good!
I am a sucker for jackets and this one takes the cake! My picture does not do this cute jacket justice. I bought this last week from a local boutique, Karisma, and I love it! It is super soft, even the denim portion. If you see me in person soon, you can probably bet I will be wearing this. I love that you can dress it up or down. I threw it on with a plain white tank and my black workout crops earlier this week to go to my husband’s office for lunch and I didn’t look like I just walked out of the gym (which I had)!
I don’t have one particular favorite read from this week and instead I have enjoyed reading a various number of blogs this week. If you haven’t checked out these blogs, do!
Sandra at Organic Runner Mom: She just went to a running retreat in Maine and I am swooning over her trip.
Sam at Pancake Warriors: I just discovered Sam and I am digging her recipes AND her workouts. Check her out!
Kathryn at Dancing to Running: You know I love a Fit Momma… especially one who is making exercising while pregnant a priority. I love reading Kathryn’s journey to her first baby and how she is listening to her body.
Time with friends, tennis, autumn soup, a new jacket, and some blog reading- my favorites from the week. I am off to enjoy this Friday and have a relaxing weekend with my sweet family. I hope you all do the same, fit friends!
