Weekend Adventures + Deals!

Happy December! This year has officially flown by and the countdown is now on to 2015. After thoroughly enjoying all the food and drinks last week I needed to get off my butt and do something yesterday. Luckily, SL was game and we found a new trail near our new house to explore.

Here are some pictures from our Sunday adventure!

Love the Mizuno Wave Hayates – kept my feet dry even in the snow.

Black Friday / Cyber Monday Deals

I didn’t go crazy this holiday weekend but I did get a little shopping in with some “essentials” I’ve had my eye on for a while now. I started early (Monday or Tuesday) with an order from Beachbody.com. They had amazing deals on everything and after missing Body Pump classes for years I bit the bullet and bought the at home version, Pump. It was 60% off…how could I not?

Next on my list, a new winter jacket. Walking to work in Boston in the winter is COLD so a good winter jacket is a must. I needed something super warm but that didn’t look like I was about to hot the slopes. After searching the net, I found this one from Columbia.

Columbia Women’s Carson Pass™ II Jacket

Because it was on sale, I decided I needed a vest too and completely negated the money I saved on the jacket, but hey, the vest was on sale too! I opted for black because it will match everything I own but there are some other awesome colors to choose from.

To round out my shopping, I hit up Old Navy because everything today is 40% off using code CYBER. I bought another pair of my favorite leggings but this time, in black.

Friday Favorites – 9.5

September already?! What?! I am not ready for summer to be over so good thing its been hot as balls this week. Before I go into things I’ve been loving this week I’d like to first point out that I loved that it was a short work week. Usually short weeks drag by but this week zoomed by! It’s the little things that make me happy.

Now, onto some other things I have been loving this week.

Friday Favorites

  • Free Burrito Days at Boloco


I love burritos (and most other “Mexican” food). I love that Boloco has mini burritos so I can eat one and not immediately feel like I have to run a triathlon to burn it off. I love free things. So really, this is the best possible thing that has happened to me EVER this week. If you live in New England and love a good burrito, visit your nearest Boloco on their free burrito day and hook yourself up!

  • Jillian Michaels’ Podcast

Jillian Michaels' podcast

This is truly a gem. I’ve been listening non stop for a couple weeks now and I love every second of it. I find myself laughing out loud while walking to and from work, on the train and sometimes at work. Its that good. Jill and her co-host, Janis, discuss everything under the sun so each show is completely different. Love it. Keep up the great work Jillian!

Stitch Fix Bag

I made the switch from the purse I’ve been toting around since Christmas to this new bag. Calling it a purse would be an understatement because I could legit pack for a weekend in this bad boy and still have room for more. Note – I stuffed my free burrito in it above. It’s gigantic and I love it! It came in my August Fix (which I kept everything from) and I raved about it to my stylist. It can be worn as a cross body or carried as a tote making it perfect in all ways.

  • Labor Day Sales

Old Navy Labor Day Sale

I did not take as much advantage of these as I should have but I did get some things I have been wanting but didn’t want to fork over the cash for. Both of my buys were from Old Navy on Monday and I can’t wait to wear them both. First this red chambray button up. I bought the blue on last season and I seriously live in it. My mom has always told me I look good in red so I went with the red. I also snagged these Active Compression Leggings and I am already wishing I had purchased two pairs. Solid chance I start living in these once the fall and winter roll around.

And that’s a wrap for this week. I am really looking forward to this weekend because SL and I have some fun things on the docket. I’ll be sure to recap on Monday. Hope you have a awesome and active weekend!

What are you loving this week?

Are there any great Labor Day sales still going on?

Old Navy is doing 20% off until Monday with code SAVE. Maybe I will order another pair of leggings!
