Friday Favorites – 8.29

How is already the end of August? Not only did the summer fly by (not that it is over) but this whole year has been flying by! This week, however, did not fly by for me, even though I was crazy busy at work. So needless to say I am so excited that it is finally Friday!

It’s labor day and I have two cookouts on the agenda which I still need to decide what to make/bring for both but I am not going to worry about that right now and instead I’ll share with you some of my favorites from this week!

Friday Favorites

  • 3 Day Weekends


(I love…in a big way)

I need this three day weekend! All weekends should be three days – FACT! SL and are are sticking around town and hitting up a couple cookouts and hopefully getting out house cleaned up a little bit (I have epic amounts of laundry to do too).

Patriots Shirt

I want this…I want it now! I’m bamboozled that it is already football season but this shirt pretty much describes Sundays in the HurLaw household. We don’t get much else done, other than cooking mass amounts of food. And, side note, Julian Edelman is freaking hot! Who knew?!

  • Pho

This is one of my favorite things, ever. I could eat pho for every single meal. Is it weird that I am loving piping hot bowls of soup this summer? I can’t help it…it’s too amazing for words. Until December my office is right on the edge of Chinatown so I am going to take every advantage I can to gobble up multiple bowls of the good stuff.

That’s all for this week. I have to get a few more things done at the office then I am free as a bird and so ready to celebrate this holiday weekend!

Happy Labor Day my friends!

What are some of your favorites this week? Does anyone else crave off-season foods/drinks?

Busy Weekend, Busy Week

This weekend flew by because I was busy busy. Friday night started with a wedding. SL and I had had a blast, we danced all night and even hit up the photo booth. Before we knew it, it was time to head home. It was such a fun night celebrating with a fun couple. I was so busy having a blast I didn’t take any pictures…such a fail.

Saturday morning my mom and I headed out to my sister’s best friend’s bridal shower. My sister is one of the maids of honor (she is having two) and she and the other MOH and the bridesmaids put on a beautiful shower. The bride got loads or gifts and I can’t wait to celebrate with her and her husband to be at their wedding in September.

Saturday night was date night for SL and I and we opted for pho! I was so excited when he brought the idea up. I don’t even care that it’s summer and I inhaled a hot and spicy bowl of pho for dinner. It’s just so good!


Sunday was busy but not really fun busy. My parents are moving and I needed to head over to their house to go through all of my old stuff. They are kind enough to store some stuff for me but I had to toss a lot. I think it was about time to get rid of all of my college notebooks. I haven’t looked at them since college so no need to save them.

So now its time to tackle another week. Time to meal plan, time to plan workouts and time to get sh*t together until next weekend.

Weekly Dinners - 7.21.jpg

Yeah, chicken was on sale so there will be a bunch of chicken for dinner this week. I try to switch it up enough so SL doesn’t notice that we are having chicken upon chicken all week.

Now for workouts. I gotta get my run game back on this week. But I also am loving more circuit types workouts so this week will be a little of both.

Monday – Run + this Tabata Workout (complete and it was so sweaty!)

Tuesday – Cardio + Swim

Wednesday – Spin + some type of strength workout

Thursday – TRX + Run

Friday – Swim

Weekend – Toss up!

And with that…let the week begin!
