Favorite Song: Chris has released a new mix this week. It is free for download on Soundcloud! My absolute favorite track on this mix is the very last song that was remixed by DJ Kontrol. It is Elastic Heart by Sia and this version is so much better than the original!!! It is awesome and I insist that you listen to it.

Favorite Work Out Clothes: I am in desperate need of a few new outfits to work out in. I basically have three that I rotate and have to wash constantly and one of them is really on the verge of needing thrown out. JCPenney was offering $10 off $25 last weekend. I headed over there and scooped up this top this reversible sports bra on the cheap! The top was $6.99 (reg $18) and the sports bra was $14.99 (reg $26). HELLO BARGAIN! I freaking love this top and want one in every color!!! I couldn’t find the top online to share the link, hence why you get me in a selfie. I wanted to pose in such a way that you could see how flowy it is.

Favorite Purchase: Target had sent me a $5 off $25 apparel coupon. Score! I wasn’t in love with any of their swimsuits, but I did find a coverup that was just perfect! Cartwheel had a 10% off swimwear deal too! I got this in black. It is strapless, I can only assume those are swimming suit straps that are showing in this picture.

While I was walking to the fitting room with my swimwear, I spotted the cutest dress and there were only two left! Upon a closer look I realized that one of them was my size and I snatched it right up. How cute is this? And it was only $24.99!!! I got this in Pomegranate Pink. My store only had 2 pink dresses and 1 blue left, I didn’t even see the other two colors. Super flattering on!!!

Favorite Recipe: Kathy was kind enough to share her coconut flour muffin recipe with me. I have been eating this every morning for breakfast with a scoop of her homemade apple butter on top. Freaking delicious!!!! And healthy!!!!


The muffin: grease a ramekin with coconut oil. Mix in a small bowl 1 egg, 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk, 1 tsp coconut flour, 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup or honey, 1/2 tsp pure vanilla. Pour mixture in ramekin and heat on high on microwave for 2 minutes. Holy yum.

Favorite Song: We are Tonight by Billy Currington has been on repeat for me basically every day. I just love this song!! I actually enjoy running to it too, surprisingly. Usually I go for EDM-ish music to run to. Or Lady Gaga. 🙂

Favorite Beauty Find: I was perusing Walgreens last week for  something to alleviate my allergies. While I was standing in line for the pharmacist, I happened to see a display with a picture of Elsa from Frozen that caught my eye. Wouldn’t you know, Orly came out with a frozen collection of polishes and they are super awesome and pretty and ON CLEARANCE!!!! Obviously I needed a few. I made a deal with myself to not grab any pink since I have a million different pink colors. Check out this pretties.  Watch out or Else is more purple than pink. I haven’t had a chance to paint my nails yet this week, but I hope to this weekend and will share.

Favorite Surprise: Laura went up to Pennsylvania to visit family and while she was there, she went antique shopping. Being the super thoughtful friend that she is, she grabbed these Tom and Jerry glasses to add to my ever growing collection of character glasses!!! Little did she know, I LOVE Tom and Jerry. And even more special than that, my grandma’s name was Jerry.

Favorite Snack : I love salt and vinegar potato chips. Love love love. I needed to find a better snacking alternative for those days you want something salty and satisfying. Enter Planter’s Sea Salt and Vinegar peanuts. You guys. You guys. I freaking love these things. Sure, raw almonds are the healthier option…but sometimes you gotta go with flavor! These may or may not have been gone in like 3 days. Oops.

Favorite Treat: I am not a cake person in the least bit. In fact, most cakes I actually hate. I much prefer cookie cake and no longer waste calories on something I do not like, even if I feel sort of obligated to consume at parties and such…I am able to just say no thanks now. I knew Chris was my soul mate when I discovered he’d rather have cookie cake too. (Well, that isn’t the only reason. Ha!!) Yesterday I had stopped on my lunch to pick up a slice for each of us to celebrate his birthday with!!! I figured a slice is just the right amount of indulgence 🙂

I had picked a blue one for Chris, obviously!

Favorite Dog Sightings: Every time I look out on our deck when the dogs are out, I see this. They are just so damn cute!

FullSizeRender (47)The picture above looks oddly familiar from this past weekend right? About 90% of the time, Mac has his head resting on the railing guarding the city. Our house sits on a hill and he can see half of our neighborhood from his perch!

Favorite Song: When I sing along to Wiz Khalifa’s Roll Up, I always feel like my street cred points rise. 

Favorite Moment: Laura and I playing with the dogs last night at GBHS! Look at these three cuties that are looking for their forever home, Koda, Chelsea and Hooper!

Favorite Pin: Navy and white are always classic. I love everything about this picture! I could see myself curled up in one of those chairs reading for hours.

We love a good theme. Bring touches a favorite vacation or seaside beach trip to your home. Updating a space around a theme is an easy way to design a room but don’t go overboard with accents. We loved this nautical inspired room with navy blue stripes, rope inspired area rug and accent pouf paired with anchor-inspired accent light. Easy to see how a few simple elements evoke the spirit of your theme with color, texture and decorative finds.

Favorite Recipe: Last week I made my Mexican Skillet Casserole and it is always amazing. Always. Not to mention, you only have one pan to clean and um…cheese.

Favorite Product Find: Target had the Starbuck’s Cinnamon Dolce coffee on sale this past week. I normally opt for a non-flavored coffee but I was intrigued. I paired it with a splash of the all natural sweet cream creamer…and it was delicious! A nice little switch up for the week.

Favorite Song: Afrojack Ten Feet Tall – This isn’t a new song by any means…but I just love it!!! I added it to my running list for next week. It is in good company with a whole bunch of Calvin Harris stuff. And Lady Gaga. Because if you aren’t running to Lady Gaga, I am not sure what you are doing with your life.

Favorite Dinner: Last night Chris and I met up with his family at Konomi for my sister-in-law’s birthday dinner. I freaking LOVE good sushi and hibachi…and great company too 🙂

Favorite Beauty Product: I picked up the Biore Charcoal Warming 1 Minute Face Mask last week because I just have to do something about my skin. I only used it once so far, and I can really tell a difference. My skin is smoother, some of the blemishes I could feel starting disappeared and the overall look (tone?) of my face is brighter and more even. All in one minute of scrubbing?Yes, please!

Favorite Surprise: Chris was out thrifting and he picked me up this Donald Duck mug. I thought it was so sweet of him to grab it. I had no clue he was looking for glasses for my collection when he went out, but he said he does all the time.

Favorite Body Product: I like to keep a scrub in my shower at all times for good exfoliation. I normally grab one from Bath and Body Works, but when I was at Target last weekend I found this Bodycology Sugar Scrub.

Bodycology Sugar ScrubI am really loving this stuff!! I picked up the XOXO one, it has a delicate smell of raspberry and vanilla musk. It reminds me of a scent I used to wear in college and I just love how soft it makes my skin feel after I use it. There were two other scents, a floral one and a sugar one….they all smelled great in the store and I think this is going to be my go to from now on at $5.99!!!

Favorite Song – Born This Way by Lady Gaga was playing this morning when I hit a new PR during my run so I figured it was a sign that it needed to be the song of the week!

Favorite Recipe – I made Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin this week. It turned out pretty decent, but I think we decided that pork loin isn’t our favorite meal in general. Either way….it looks awesome!

I also made Lindsay’s Paleo Veggie Soup for lunches this week and it is delicious! I think I might make it again next week too.
