Hi friends! Happy Friday! I’m so glad the weekend is heeeeere. What do you have going on this weekend? I’m looking forward to catching an F45 class with a friend (I LOVE IT – more below) and heading off with the fam on a little roadtrip. I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead!
A huge highlight from this past week was celebrating Liv’s birthday! I can’t even believe she’s 10. This kid is so brilliantly smart and has a heart of gold. She’s made such amazing friends and is the best big sis to P. I’m so proud of her and being a mama to these two incredible kids is my very favorite thing.
The annual birthday pic collage:
(brb going to cry)
She wanted a pig themed party – she loves baby pigs – and we invited some of her closest friends to Defy trampoline park.
Check out the cake my mom made!!!
(I ordered the little fence and the pigs from Amazon)
Plus store-bought cupcakes and I added these little pigs on top.
Since there was no way I could find pre-made pig treat bags, I just printed out pig faces and glued them to these goodie bags.
It was the perfect day celebrating. <3
It’s time for some faves from the week and around the web. As always, I love hearing about your favorite things, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.
Read, watch, listen:
Kelly Clarkson has BLESSED US with this cover. Listen to the magic heeeeeeere.
Emily in Paris. It’s such a joy to watch, the fashion is insane, and I’m so pumped that they renewed it for two more seasons! It’s the only thing I like on TV right now lol.
Fitness + good eats:
A plate of avocado toast from Prep and Pastry with chicken sausage. I was interested to see if this would cause a spike with my CGM – I’ve been using Nutrisense for the past couple of weeks – and zero spikes! It rated the meal a 10 and I agree wholeheartedly. 😉
F45. YOU GUYS. I tried this for the first time last week with a friend and I absolutely love it. I’ve been wanting to get more HIIT-style workouts – I can do them at the gym but I get bored using the rower and treadmill – and this was everything I was looking for. I’m going to be incorporating it into my routine 1-2 times a week (depending on what I have going on and my teaching schedule), but I’ve been loving the combination of exercises, the community environment, the music, and the motivational push. Stay tuned for a Focus On post all about it! If you have any questions, please let me know, and if you’ve tried F45, leave your experience in the comments!
Fashion + beauty:
I ordered these Chelsea boots a while ago and still haven’t found a pair of jeans that work perfectly with them. (I just can’t do the wide leg jean and chelsea boot combo.) Instead, I’m just looking forward to wearing these with printed dresses and skirts in the spring! Please let me know if you’ve seen any cute wintery styling tips.
Me trying on trendy jeans:
Loving this tarte palette. It’s small – so it’s easy to stash in a travel bag or a backpack – and has all of the classic neutral colors. I have super sensitive eyes and tarte is one of the only brands that doesn’t make them itchy.
Ordered these cute heart sweatshirts for the girls.
Happy Friday, friends!
