Happy Friday everyone!
Hope you are ending your week on a good note and have a fun weekend ahead of you. We don’t have a whole lot on our agenda other than hosting a fun little pool party for close friends and family on Saturday. We’ve been wanting to do a house warming party of sorts since we moved in a couple months ago, and we’re finally feeling settled enough to show off our new digs! Other than that, some cleaning and lots of relaxation will be happening. Sounds great to me after being away from home last weekend!
Since it’s Friday and all, I figured it’d be fun to get in on a little Friday Favorites action! Linking up to Heather over at Housewife Glamour!
I’m a FlapJacked Ambassador!
You may have noticed the addition of the Flapjacked badge on the side column of my blog. Flapjacked recently invited me to be on their ambassadorship team, and I gladly accepted. I am so honored to be working with a company I love and respect so much! FlapJacked is known for their protein pancakes made with whole grain ingredients and no artificial anything. They pack in 15-17 grams of protein in only 200 calories! Not to mention they’re absolutely delicious! Flapjacked are easily my top favorite protein pancakes. You all know how much I love pancakes, so this is pretty much a perfect relationship.
An iced coffee may have happened close to every single afternoon this past week. Hunter goes down for his nap, and I whip out my homemade iced coffee and get to work on the blog. It’s been my “new thing”, and I kind of love it. I’ve been drinking one cup less each morning, and save the leftover for my iced coffee in the afternoon. I add some ice, a little half & half, and a squirt of PureVia Vanilla Stevia – simply perfect.
New Fabletics outfits
You all know my undying love for Fabletics. Each month I get a few pieces to try out from their newest catalog. Every time I receive them in the mail, I squeal for joy. I’ve already tried everything out, and of course, I’m in love.
The above top may just be my new favorite. And everyone needs a pair of bright blue capri leggings in their life.
I mean, seriously?! Cutest shorts ever.
OK, so you guys know how I was talking the other day about Hunter’s dislike of all things GREEN? Well, I think I found a winner – kale chips! For whatever reason, I totally forgot about kale chips and was reminded of them when Char mentioned them the other day. To my surprise, Hunter loved these things and gobbled them right up! It’s beyond me why or how he likes one of the strongest tasting green veggies I’ve ever eaten, but hey, I’m not complaining!
Mommy’s Me Time
Mommy’s Me Time is a new blog I’ve recently discovered, and I continue to find her posts so encouraging and uplifting. If you’re a mama, I’d highly recommend this blog!
An organized make-up drawer
Apparently I’m on an organizing spree this week. I’ve had my make-up in a make-up bag since we’ve moved, and I’ve been wanting to organize it in a drawer for more convenience. It took all of about 5 minutes to organize and makes applying my make-up a lot more enjoyable. (Obviously I’m not a huge make-up person. We just do the basics over here. )
Being featured on CNC
I felt so honored to be featured yesterday on one of my favorite healthy living blogs, Carrots ‘N’ Cake! Tina’s blog was one of the first I found back in the day, and has continued to be a favorite of mine. Check out my guest post on her blog HERE!
6 Pack Fitness Bag
I had the opportunity to try out a bag from 6 Pack Fitness recently and have really been enjoying it these last few weeks! I was sent the Plyo Sling bag made especially for women.
It’s a purse that is designed for short excursions away from home that holds two meals, comes preloaded with two sure seal containers, two small gel packs, and a sports nutrition compact.
There’s also an organizational main compartment and side pockets for healthy snacks.
This purse was perfect for my long weekend of BODYPUMP training as I needed plenty of meals and snacks to fuel me through the weekend. It kept everything organized and nice and cool.
I could see these bags being perfect for the working woman (or man – there’s plenty of various bag options) and/or a fitness professional who is always on the go. Lucky for you, 6 Pack Fitness is willing to giveaway a 6 Pack Fitness bag of your choice!
To enter, head over to 6 Pack Fitness and tell me in the comments which bag YOU would choose and why!
