Dresses, Cookie Dough, & Other Faves

I didn’t exactly mean to ditch you guys yesterday … but, well, priorities. We ended up staying over at my parents’ house later than I anticipated to visit with my grandparents and sister who are both in town and bed was calling my name by the time we got home. But, I’m back with some Friday Favorites! Woot! Let’s take a look at what has been making me smile this week…

Wedding dress shopping with my sister

On Wednesday afternoon, my stepmom, her friend, my grandma, my sister, and myself ventured out to do some wedding dress shopping for the bride-to-be! It was such a treat to be able to experience such a fun and exciting day with my little sister. Even better, she said “yes to the dress”!


Easy Lemon Dill Tuna Salad

I’ve been enjoying this tuna salad for lunch almost every day this week and it’s a-MA-zing! It’s so crazy easy, super delicious and refreshing, and very filling and healthy. Can’t beat it!

Baby flutters

I’m about 99% sure I’ve been feeling flutters from our sweet babe this past week. Ahhh, it just makes me smile so big every time. There’s still a little hesitation as to whether it’s truly the baby or just gas bubbles as it’s not super obvious yet, but I’m preeeetty sure it’s the baby.

Stairclimber + elliptical workout

It’s been a long, long, long while since I’ve done my own cardio workout at the gym since I teach fitness classes regularly. Since I wasn’t subbing any extra classes this week and just felt like moving a little more, I decided to get in a little cardio workout of my own yesterday morning. I headed over to the gym to bust out about 40 minutes between the elliptical and stairclimber and was once again reminded at how much the stairclimber kicks my butt! It was awesome and a nice change, but it also reaffirmed my love for group fitness classes. While I enjoyed mixing things up a bit, I realized that my motivation and energy is much higher when I’m teaching and/or taking a group fitness class.


Newly painted powder room

Every time I walk past our powder room, I am reminded again at how much I just LOVE the new look of the prettier and softer paint color in there. I bought a little vase of flowers for the vanity, and I’m still on the hunt for a thing or two to hang on the walls.


Homemade eggless cookie dough

I had a serious hankering for cookie dough the other day, so I turned to trusty Pinterest (<—follow me!) and decided to make this eggless cookie dough. Oh.so.good.


That about wraps things up! I’m off to teach my early morning BodyPump class, and then my grandparents are coming over to hang out with Hunter and I for a bit later this morning. Woot woot for Friday!

Tell me a few of your favorite things from the week!
