It’s Friday! More specifically, Five Things Friday.
What are you guys doing this weekend? I think I have a pretty uneventful time planned yet again which sounds great to me. Tomorrow I am attending a 6 am class at Crosstown Fitness (why???) and then have the rest of the day to putz around. If you have any exciting plans, feel free to share them so that I can steal your ideas.
This week has actually been pretty busy for me as I have been shadowing, eating, networking, working on some freelance stuff, and eating some more. Maybe it’s good if I just relax this weekend. While you are enjoying this fine Friday, check out some of my favorites of the week:
1. Facebook Page
As I mentioned the other day, I bit the bullet and started a FB page for Erin’s Inside Job. I already had a Twitter and Instagram page (are we friends??), but figured I would go hard or go home. Click on the picture below to be BFFs on FB.
2. New Protein Powder
I have been whining about how the last plant based protein powder was the worst thing ever, but after doing some research I bought Sunwarrior’s Classic Protein Powder (<– affiliate) and it is AMAZING. I have only had it for 2 days but I love it. The taste is leaps and bounds better than my previous one and I think I may be in love.
3. Letterpress App & Sporcle
Neil and I downloaded this app the other night because we wanted to play a game. It is reminiscent of Scrabble and the goal is to have more of your color on the board than your opponent. I love word games, so we have killed a lot of time with this (that’s me winning by the way).
It’s good if you have someone to play with, but I get frustrated with the time it takes for a random online person to play. For those times when I can’t find anyone who is devoting all of their time and energy into combining words, another go to trivia site is Sporcle. I have been going there periodically since college and there are constantly new trivia games added. It’s one of my favorite sites ever.
4. The Little Friend
I picked this book up at Costco last week and have been reading it ever since. It is by the same author as The Goldfinch, which was also on a previous Five Things Friday. I love the way it is written and it doesn’t hurt that it centers around trying to solve a decade long murder mystery.
5. Fitness Adventures
Last night I had the opportunity to attend Sweatworking, which is a monthly event put on by A Sweat Life. I was able to reconnect with Sara and Suz and even meet some new people (hi Nikki and Amanda!). Last night’s class was held at Equinox in Lincoln Park and while I don’t know that I was a huge fan of the class itself, I definitely liked reuniting and networking! I’m looking forward to February’s unless the world freezes over. By the world I mean Chicago and I am just waiting for the ball to drop on this manageable weather.
Hey, have a great weekend!!
