Friday Favorites – 4.17

Did anyone else’s week fly by? Mine did. Happy Friday!

Who is excited for the weekend? I am for a few reasons – the biggest being going to a wedding dress fitting! My dress came in early and I was able to schedule a fitting tomorrow night. On the fitness front, I will be running a 5k on Saturday and getting R.I.P.P.E.D. Certified on Sunday!

Friday Favorites - Spring

the 4-hour workweek

I just started this book on Wednesday and I am flying my way thought it. Through his pages, Tim is teaching me how to escape the rate race and experience the world while living a full life. Hopefully, one day, I have the balls to go through with everything he says to do.

I got these babies as part of the TIU Bikini Series bundle that I bought. The are so thick and soft and like hugs for my feet. I love them. I tried to find them on the Tone It Up shop but they weren’t their. Sorry – I hate to rave about things that aren’t widely available but this is real life and sometimes some people get to have things and other people don’t.

  • Impromptu Date Nights

Impromptu Date Nights

Sometimes Tuesday call for Mexican. I would love to say SL and I partook in Taco Tuesday but it was more like Chips/Margs/Burritos/Chimichangas Tuesday. Whatever, I’ll take it. I got home from work and had no interest in cooking the chicken dish that was on the menu and SL mentioned Mexican and I jumped on him all over it! We actually had a little date night last night too (wing night!).

Yes, we live together, but we don’t always have the time to site and talk and just enjoy each other’s company. Impromptu dates nights are a necessity in our world.

I didn’t have all that many favorites this week but the ones that made the list, made my week so they each count as two.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

And Just Like That Its Tuesday

Where did the weekend go? Where did Monday go? I found myself on the train this morning and realized, just like that, its Tuesday! I convinced my elevator mate that Tuesday was the worst day of the week – so that was a win. Backing up, before the train, I did a workout and ate chia pudding.

But enough about this loser day, lets back up to the weekend!


Neither SL or I were hungry when we got home so we chilled for a bit then decided to check out a new-to-us pizza place right down the street. We ordered a loaded pie and brought it back to the house to eat in the comfort of our comfy clothes. Now, I have a love affair with pizza and can easily polish off 4 slices but this pie bested me and I only ate 2 slices.


Big day. Huge day! Our Save the Dates came in!

Save the Date

I spent most of the day prepping the envelopes – printing labels, placing stamps, stuffing.  All that jazz.

SL invited some friends over to hang outside and grill now that almost all of our snow is gone and he held a football. I mean a baby.

I am not sure who looks more uncomfortable, SL or the baby. (Note our friend laughing at him in the background)


Sunday was a picture perfect spring day in New England. I put off all of my normal Sunday responsibilities (groceries, prep, etc.) to enjoy the weather. Apparently I was not attached to my phone because I have zero pictures form the day. I did manage to sneak in a quick trip to the grocery store later in the ay so SL and I could eat this week but made sure to save plenty of time to watch the last the last two episodes of last season of Game of Thrones.

Finally, something to be excited about on Sunday nights! I <3 GOT!

That was pretty much it for my weekend and I blacked out most of yesterday so I have never really left to report. Enjoy your Tuesdays!
