Happy Friday friends! It’s been a good week and will be an even better one next week because we are spending half of it in LA visiting some family. Since the temperatures decided to drop here in Chicago, I will gladly take 60 degrees. I’ve also been battling a bit of a head cold over here, so I’m hoping the sunshine will heal me. 🙂 Here’s a look at some of the things that I’ve been loving this week! *some affiliate links included below 1. Brown Sugar Bear I knew about these little bears before, but I would always forget… View Post

Welcome to 2019! I’ve been working on getting back into the swing of things this week after having time off over the holidays, and it’s resulted in some extra afternoon naps which I’m blaming on the baby (but also readjusting to waking up at 5:30 am for workouts).

Hey guys happy Friday! Today is actually super busy for me because I’m getting in my final training clients before the holidays.

Here are some of… View Post

Happy Friday! If you’ve followed along on Instagram stories the past few days, you’re probably aware that Neil and I spent most of the week in Banff, Canada. I’m including it as one of my favorite things this week, so I’ll go into more detail there, but it was GORGEOUS. Also, I put our Christmas tree up early in November to prevent feeling like the holidays are going by so quickly, but I still feel like they’re speeding by! Once we got home from our trip I realized Christmas was less than two weeks away. HOW CAN IT BE?? Maybe… View Post

Hello all! I got to Thursday of this week (when I usually write this post) and almost thought that I would have to skip it. I couldn’t think of one literal thing to put on this list, but what always helps is looking at my phone photos from the past week and just doing a survey of things by walking around the house. I found my five in way less time than I thought, so VOILA here is your Friday list! Neil and I are leaving to head to Banff National Park on Sunday for a couple days and I’m… View Post
