Friday Favorites

I know Friday is almost over, but it has been such a great week and I wanted to share some of my favorite things from the past few days.



Check out Katie’s blog to see her favorite things and if it floats your boat, feel free to join in the fun and link up next week!

1. Surprises!


I’m currently blogging from Atlanta where Atlas & I surprised my mom with a visit! After a sweet New Year’s Eve with Dave and some friends, Atlas and I hopped on an early flight Wednesday morning and headed to my sister’s house down south. My mom had no idea I was coming and thought she was just spending the week with my 2 sisters, but we secretly worked it out for all of us to be together for the week! We have a video of my mom’s reaction when Atlas and I walked into the house and if I can get someone techy in this house to help me, I will upload it tomorrow for you all to watch. It was priceless! Lots of happy tears were shed! As you can tell by the above photo, there is a lot of ‘togetherness’ going on. ↑ That would be 7 people sitting in the bathroom entertaining Atlas while he gets a bath. Kid is in HEAVEN.

2. Sister time! I’ve so enjoyed chatting, laughing and hanging out with my sisters this week! My sister, Michelle, & I completed this workout yesterday and it was one of the highlights of my day!

QuicknSweatCircuitSweating it out with my sister definitely makes the favorite’s list.

3. Treadmill runs.


My sister got a treadmill for Christmas (SO jealous) and I’ve been breaking it in for her since I arrived. I know it sounds crazy, but I’ve missed treadmill runs! I’ve been doing intervals and they are kicking my butt in the best way!

And yes…the above picture was taken from the floor where I was sprawled out after being humbled by my first interval run in months.

4. Katy Perry’s song, Roar.



It is my new power song. It just makes me feel tough.

5. Snickerdoodle Cookies.



Does this need an explanation?

6. Southern Casseroles.

IMG_4207My sister cooked a feast for New Year’s Day and all the southern casseroles were so delicious. It was easily my favorite meal of the year (this counts for both the year 2013 and the year 2014).

Aaaannnd speaking of favorites…I’ve got my favorite baby crying for me so I got to run!

Peace out, friends!
